Im liking this thread!! I think Kyles approach is very good!!
I was on Rippetoes one for a while, just came of it
So week one is ABA, next week is BAB ect.
In 3 months including a deload and form work added 66lbs to my deadlift, and almost as much to my squat.
Was hard work, but it works. If they dont want to do powercleans, bent over rows would be ok, but ideally powercleans
But this relies a lot on taking the time to learn the lifts properly, eating big and so on. If they can do this, then its a good approach IMO.
Each session I added 5lb to my squat, so +15lb per week on squats (unless it was a deload, or was taking the time to perfect my form). Deadlifts was +10lb per session, again unless I was deloading or working on form.
