I've read a lot of the posts around here when I "newbie" asks for a routine everyone immediately points them to the WWB routines. I've done the WBB routine's myself and I think they are great. However, I've been in the gym for about 2 years before doing them. Which, isn't a lot, but enough time to get some stabalization training and get my muscles ready for heavy lifting.
I know a guy that is looking to start lifting this year. He's been in a gym on and off his entire life. He's never lifted anything heavy of course and mainly used machines. So, basically, consider him someone that has never set foot in a gym because the times he did set foot in a gym, it was very few and far between and he didn't do much.
He wants me to come help him get started. I'm worried that if I slap him on the WBB#1 immediately, that will leave room for a lot of injury since it's heavy compound exercises and his muscles are as weak as they come. Does anyone have a good routine or idea for a routine for someone just starting out that can help in prep for stabalization and heavy lifting? I mean, if I throw squats on this guy immediately, his legs will bow in quite possibly he won't be able to handle anything with proper form. I figured a good 1 month stabalization program would help with this. Any ideas?
