Best Workout for Muscle & Strength Building?
 
What is the Best Workout for Muscle and Strength Building?

To quote Jim Wendler:

Quote:

"Now if you're a beginner and are working out without any guidance whatsoever, it's probably best to just stick with the basic program. One of the worst things a young lifter can do is take advice from other beginners on message boards they usually have all the advice and none of the experience."
A basic program.

This is the case for most beginners, though there might be a few exceptions.

A basic program that concentrates on building the muscle tissue itself (rather than filling you up with liquid) in the 1-8 rep range (most of the time), that concentrates on the compound lifts and is ideally a fullbody or upper/lower split.

just my 2p worth

MAster the basics before trying anything too fancy. Alot of new guys want to jump right into a crazy split before even mastering the big compound lifts. These lifts take time to learn solid form. Squats,Deadlifts,OHP and Bench are all works of art in my opinion when done correctly and are the building blocks for everything else you need.

I agree with this 100%. Over-splitting and over-complicating your routine are some of the main mistakes beginners make. Somewhere in the 5-8 rep range on the basics (squat, deadlift, etc) are what beginners should be doing.
