So I have seen a lot of people who are doing all these splits and stuff and we all know that they're horrible. There have been articles written on how terrible typical bodybuilding split routines are.
I am posting this thread for one sole purpose: I just want to put out a few training templates off the top of my head, which I believe most newbies would benefit from. These are subject to change and I will update them whenever a new idea hits me. But this is because whenever some of you guys are giving advice and the person asking you for your advice says "so if what I am doing is bad what exactly should I be doing?" you guys know what to give him.
I would like it if you guys add your own thoughts, criticisms, variations into this. No problem. This is just some of the stuff I think most beginners should start with.
Ok, so here we go with the programs….but first, some important things:
Mobility, Stability and Flexibility work. This is ESSENTIAL for most newbies to do regularly in order to avoid complications later on. So this is the first way to get started. Exercises for this are up all over on the other forums out here so please look this up FIRST. This is your warm-up and everything else depends on this.

The volume can be waved, etc. It doesn't have to be consistent. The point is to progress.
I'll post more as and when I think of something. You guys are ofcourse more than welcome to post your own routines too. The idea is to give something to newbies or beginners to actually do instead of giving them a set program like SS or 5x5 which cannot be fucked with.
