Nah do all those lifts 5x5 three times a week

Noobs can handle and benefit from heavy full body routines as long as the have time to recover (3 days a week is suffice)

I'm actually trying out Mark Rippetoe's starting strength program which looks like this:

Squats 3x5
OHP 3x5 (switch between this and bench press every workout)
Deadlifts 1x5 (switch between this and Power Cleans 5x3 every workout)

3 times a week

I've been training for 5 years now so we'll see about the recovery. He recommends starting 20-30lbs below your 5rm so that's what I'm doing. Always sold on compound programs like these. Iso exercises suck

you didn't mention arms either bro

noobs shouldn't even worry about any isolation lifts until they've built a solid frame

and total noob would ideally run a program like this continuously for about a year (min 6 months), with maybe a short cut at some point if you let yourself get fat, and then you can modify the routine by adding some iso at the end of each routine

yeah the program i mentioned is a sort of variation of starting strength. they're both similar. i preferred the one i posted, but they are both of the same philosophy for sure.

iso's are great for the right people at the right time but in terms of efficiently adding strength and size a compound routine like this is much, much better.

cuz compound movements don't work all the muscle (groups) involved to the level required for hypertrophy

if you can only do a certain level of work on bench cuz your tris are giving out, then your chest is going without proper exertion until your tris catch up, its a waste
