It is also what I have used myself and with people I train, with good results as described here. Of course if the person cannot press the 20kg bar overhead, we build up their pushups and use dumbbell overhead presses until they can; if they cannot deadlift 60kg (the 20kg bar plus a 20kg plate either side), we have them do rack pulls until they can rack pull 80kg.

I am not in favour of splits for beginners; the purpose of splits is to allow body parts more time to recover between workouts, but a beginner cannot work very intensely, so doesn't need that extra time, a split thus robs them of much possible growth.

Thanks for your answer.

I have get some great info from the guys here
But i think that i going to build my routine about the Squat Deadlift Bench Press and the Press,just like big swede said.

Then it's gonna like something like this.

Sunday: Press day + assistance
Monday: Squat day + assistance
Wednesday: Bench day + assistance
Friday: Deadlift day + assistance

For the moment i think this is the best option,because at the moment i have a knee injurie.
Three squat sessions in a week at this moment don't feel right for me

I think they are wise for someone who hasn't gained much muscle to try.

My personal rule is 3-4 days per week while you are muscle building. This can be done fullbody, with an A/B split or a split.

I do not strictly recommend fullbody workouts, although I do believe they are a great option to try when you want to build muscle and strength. Splits can (and do) work, but often they are bloated with too much work, for no reason.

In anything, I recommend keeping it simple.

I used to do something like that myself. In fact, I'm working my way back to that format. Very good. Keep your focus on the main lift for the day, and don't sweat the assistance work. Afterall, its just that...assistance. Start a log and run with this for a while.

My idea was to work very hard on the main lifts and not to over do it on the assistance exercises.

I've i had not the knee injurie,i would definitively go for a full body work out.
I just start with this kind a training and i will see in few months how things are going.

Maybe after that a simple Upper/Lower body splits just like bendthebar suggested

Sounds like Wendler's 5/3/1 to me, get a hold of a copy of his book for more info, I heard it was really good.
