I disagree. Cookie-cutter routines are not suitable for most individuals. Everyone has areas that they need to work on, and it's their job or their coach's job to integrate the correct exercises based on the athlete's need.
Also, I think beginners are some of the worst, because they usually possess a host of imbalances or problems from playing other sports and training incorrectly (bench and curls routines).
They may have terrible balance, flexibility (especially deep tissue), bad ankle strength/stability (pronation), poor coordination, horrible core strength/stability, bad movement patterns, overly dominant sides, tons of compensations, no back and leg developement, and just tons of stuff an experienced strength coach (not me) could tell you about.
