1) Decent form on the big 5; Squats, Deads, Benches, Chins/Rows and Presses. Decent form is good enough to not get hurt. Obviously form is something which people always need to work on.
2) An understanding of diet and some clean and healthy eating habits. We don't need to split hairs over what's clean, I think most people know what's good food and what isn't.
3) A decent level of cardiovascular conditioning. I don't want anyone keeling over from over-exertion.
4) An appreciation of the role of rest and recuperation on training.
Essentially once that relatively short list is fulfilled I would feel comfortable in allowing someone to start pushing a little harder. They would still be doing 2-3 x full body sessions a week, using relatively high reps in the big 5. But I'd feel more comfortable in allowing weight increases.
