Would the first WWB routine be good for a complete beginner like myself?
I want to get big as fast as possible, is this the routine for me? What have been other people's results with this routine?
Does anybody think another routine may benefit me more?
I plan to follow this routine religously, I will be a friggin' machine... It is the summer I have no commitments, I can sleep 12 + hours a night and live in the gym if need be... what routine would best fit my circumstances???
ONE MORE THING -- I will be hiring a personal trainer, so if you think the WWB routine is best (but has some problems) tell me those problems and I can tell me trainer to adjust the routine to fix those problems. Like does it focus too little on legs? Please tell me where the routine needs improvment (if it does at all) so my trainer can amend it.
We can't tell you where the weak areas are because we don't know where you are weak. If you have a lagging bodypart or a fairly noticeable imbalance then it may help to work on that problem first.
WBB 1 is fine as is. Lift hard, eat lots (clean) sleep lots and you'll grow like a weed. That's a promise!

"Soli Deo Gloria"
"Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21
"I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

IF I stick to this routine let my life revolve around the routine, sleep, and eating... how soon will it be before I can expect to see gains?
If you've never done any weight training in the past, you'll see gains in about 3-4 weeks no matter what routine you use (within reason). Your fastest gains will be made in the first few months of working out. A lot of people will try to throw out little tidbits for you along the way, but the greatest justice you can do for yourself is to READ a lot, and make your own informed decisions.
I used the WBB1 routine for a while, and have now been on the HST routine outlined at www.hypertrophy-specific.com for about 3 weeks. I can tell you that I personally perfer the HST technique and methodology over HIT, but your mileage may vary. Take everything you read/hear with a grain of salt, and be especially aware of the "buddy of mine" stories. Good luck, and congratulations on wanting to change yourself for the better. You won't regret it.
