i've been using CW's total body training and have seen good results. i am up 30lbs since i started lifting about 7 months ago, and i gained just under 10lbs during my 7 weeks using TBT.
i did a bench variation all three workouts, rotating inc and flat with dumbbells and barbell, and squats twice a week, rotating between wide squats and olympic squats and deadlifted once a week on the 5 rep day.
i gained the initial 20lbs quickly after i started lifting, but seemed to be stuck. with no change in diet, i easily added about 10lbs using this routine and i attribute it to the high frequency of the big three lifts.
I'm stunned. I was just thinking not ANOTHER one then you mentioned squats, deads and bench. Those should be your #1 lifts. Also, eat tons of food. Use the search feature for things like "bulking" "beginner" and "newbie". You'll find tons of info.
