This is Stronglifts for beginner, isn’t it? Solid program, anyway, just be shure to eat a lot of healthy food (and a little of unhealthy, if you like it :slight_smile:

Maybe that as a beginner, he just can’t go hard enough on an exercise, so working a muscle group once a week (as in most split routines) doesn’t work AT HIS PRESENT LEVEL OF INTENSITY (call it as you wish).
This was my case at the beginning, so I started doing full body routines. After two years or so, I switched to an upper-lower split, 'cause my muscle needed more time to recover (since I was able to hit them harder).
