Personally, I'd rather see a newb squatting twice a week and spending time with the primary heavy compound movements. Rows, Pullups. Deadlifts. Bench Press. Dips. Military Press. Upright Rows. Squats, Romanian Deadlifts. Closegrip benches. Curls. Etc.

A newb doesn't need much stimulation to grow. From a priority standpoint, once the basics are all knocked out, I don't care what a newb does...as long as the basics aren't sacrificed.

Many new trainees burnout from doing too much. I would rather see a beginner spend only 90 to 120 minutes each week in the gym during the first month of training. Get in, do the basics, and get out.
