My opinion at this time, is that an old style 3x10 wholebody program is a great starting point for beginners. At least for about 3 months. They should work on good form, and progression.

After the intial 3 months they could start to lower reps by increasing % of max to a higher degree. After about 5-6 months they should be able to hit a solid heavy 5x5 program, and do some good work with decent form.

Crawl before you walk, walk before you run.
