Cutler's "Training For Beginners"
Its still alot of volume there per body part.
Not too much volume for Legs:
Leg Extensions 3 x 8-10
Squats 4 x 8-10
Stiff-Legged Dead Lifts or Lying Leg Curls 3 x 8-10
Except I would do Squats first.
Would you say it's better or not as good as wbb1?
I would say WBB1 is better...
especially for beginners... Cutler's program is asking for too much for a newbie...
And it you put the maximum effort into WBB, your strength gains will be greater..
And then once you have that solid base and understand the complexities/simplicities of lifting and you want to obtain different goals, then try a more BB routine like Cutlers and see what your results are.
But give WBB#1 4 months.. you will see the results.
Lift hard, Eat Right, Sleep Enough...
I really don't know why any beginner would want or need to be training 6x/week and doing over 20 sets in any training session...
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
