Let me guess, the TS should be doing squats, deads, cleans, snatches, bent rows, overhead presses over at York Barbell Club and he should always break paralel in the squat etc etc etc. He didnt mention how strong n advanced he was until later in the thread. And for a true beginner, a routine like the one I outlined would be fine. Its just to get things moving. Its funny nowadays so many people are doing the things that only the most dedicated lifters did 15-20 years ago (which is great) but its not necessary for everybody and I would argue that for some its counter productive to adhere to a program with so many heavy, basic, lifts.
