    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.

    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.

    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
