Default Best Routine for a Beginner?

What's the best routine for a beginner for size and stength?

This is, of course, after they have spent a month (or so) learning the exercises, and are ready to enter the world of hardcore progression.

GRIMS TWEAK ON STARTING STRENGTH is IMO the best

this program started me off to crazy progress that anyone can make. if you just add weight each workout, you should be able to keep going up for a while

- use an aba bab schedule
- when you can hit all the reps on all the sets then increase the weights by 5ibs
- if you are a true beginner who has never lifted before or has not lifted in a long long time, then do just 2 workouts during your first week, and find your working weights, make sure after the first set with the weight that you are using for the working sets that you could have done 2-3 more reps
- form is very important
- nutrition is the most important part, so make sure you are eating for your goal

A
Squat- 3x5
Bench press- 3x5
BB row- 3x5
BB curl- 2x8

B
Deadlift- 3x5
Military Press- 3x5
Chin-ups- 3x6-8
Bench Dips (or triceps dips)- 2x8
