In the mean time, get him hooked on progression of weight. Show him quotes or whatever by pros, or videos of Ronnie Coleman moving heavy. Weight. At least if he's moving heavy weight, he might come around, or make gains despite his program.
I agree with BTB. You can talk till your blue in the face, or you can do whats right and show him. Then he will lisson. Untill then he sounds like one of the people sucked in by HYPE and Sales talk and won't lisson.
As for you keep the sound mind and grow.
