I am weak in my hip flexor, glutes,and abs.I have started to run in the mornings. I eat six small meals every three hours, post and pre-work out shakes,hour after shake I have my post workout meal dinner.

I’m sorry, but this does not constitute 6 meals;

If you check back in that thread, some people have given you some valuable advice.

Also if your dead set on doing a TBT program, you can find a whole host of good, tried and tested programs here;

Your just going to have to search through it and find what suits you. Look out for Chad Waterburys stuff;

Although I personally am not a fan of TBT style training, a lot of people have found it effective.

You might also want to visit the Sister site for some great advice;

Full body workouts work the ENTIRE body at each session, there is no emphasis on upper/lower or specific body parts.

If you’re new to lifting, and want to do full body sessions, I suggest getting the book “Starting Strength” by Mark Rippetoe. He’s got all the basics covered.

He also has a series of videos on how to correct your squat problem.

Here they are all in one place:
