I was excited when a very, very skinny friend (6’0" 134 lbs) of mine said that he’d like to start coming to the gym with me, with me as his quasi personal trainer. He has lifted before, but as I said, he’s very thin and very weak. Any suggestions on what workout plan (3 days a week) I should start him on?

Sweet mother of pearl. Get that boy some Royale with cheese(s). No joke. His top priority is going to be bumping up that bodyweight. How the hell did he get so skinny?
For training three days a week, Starting Strength is a solid start, like Dissonance said.
Total Body Training would be another good choice.
Whatever you go with, remember not to overwhelm him with too much, too soon. And, because it needs repeating, he’s got to eat like it’s his new part-time job. Without an abundance of calories, nothing will happen.
Suggest that he start an “hour of power” immediately.
Just to clarify, is that just because you’ve been lifting longer than him, or are you a trainer?
