Beginners need practice to get good at the bench press. This means that a routine that uses sets accross with a moderate rep range will be benefitial to them. I would also say that they should be practicing the lift 2 or 3 times a week to start with. Start with an easy weight, keep a good eye on perfect (safe) form, and add weight slowly; 2.5 to 5 lbs every session. As the weight gets heavy, relative to their strength levels, good form should be maintained throughout. Sets should be terminated when form breaks.
