it's certainly not the be all and end all and from some of the dismissive comments I've read from the author, he is a bit of a cunt.

Most of the good beginner programs are pretty similar. Do it properly with good form and you'll be fine.

Its not hard to make a beginner program. Just balance everything out between pushing, pulling and the shoulders. You could do a push and pull day... push day, bench, dips, shoulder press, lateral raises, triceps pushdown... pull day, rows, chins, upright row, rear delt raises, curls... leg day, leg press, RDLs, standing calf raises. Everything will grow evenly and none of those lifts are super technical. I feel like people just like saying they are on some popular program. A lot of them don't make much sense to me

Thanks for the advice guys. Didn't mean to start a flame war lol. Will check out Starting Strength for sure. Even though "huge quads and glutes, get a little fat, but keep my arms, chest and shoulders pretty much the same size" doesn't sound like exactly what I'm looking for haha. 

 

Guess I'll get a bit more educated and then probably get a trainer for a few sessions.

Here's the best advice you're gonna get: don't use this thread for advice, it is shit.

SS gets spouted off because it's what everyone starts with for some reason. If you're trying to look good and get a lean yet muscular physique -- don't do it. I'm going to get trashed for saying this -- but if a program doesn't fit your goals you shouldn't waste time doing it. It's also $30 for the book -- woof.

This is a much better beginner's program geared towards your goal, which is (basically) to look better naked. There's instructional videos on there to show you how to do the lifts. I still think you should have someone with experience(buddy, PT with good reputation) show you the basics and orient you to the gym, but videos do help.

Sean10mm's 5x5 is a good stripped version that has some accessory work you can add on.

Basil seriously:

Do this program:

http://newbie-fitness.blogspot.com/2007/01/stripped-5x5.html

+3x10 Curls on A Day
+3x10 Dips on B Day

If you're willing to get a trainer (or get a free training session) or have a friend who knows their shit, have them teach you the lifts in this program (I find dumbbell version of shoulder presses and Rows easier to teach than the barbell version).


You'll get a nice foundation of strength, and still work out your "glamor" muscles.

Lol pretty accurate description of miscer ^


Though tbh there's quite a few guys on there that are strong as fuck and have killer physiques, too.

Fuji- it def does. I was on my 1 rep max that day and after I used the slingshot. I was able to rep my 1 rep max for 5 with it. Adds alot of bounce and keeps your arms in the best position possible if you bench narrow.

Absolute lols, this is literally me, a few corrections though. I am 185lb 6'3" auschwitz mode, but I reckon thats about equal to 5'manlet" 170lb or something. I don't just talk about my lifts all the time, you have to use social media too. I asked a random bro in the gym to video record me doing pull ups with 60lb for a set of 6 today so I could group snap chat it. I don't even have a total since I haven't done flat barbell bench in years and I only box squat. I am a 2nd year uni brah and my parents are paying for it, but it's fine because it's a master race uni for a master race program so I can be an associate at an iB or consultancy firm after, but I live in a town house on tralfalgar square not a basement. I am getting yucky at a festival in a few weeks, but Eastern electrics is not an EDM festival brah, EDM is such a shit word, it's a deep house and techno festival, i'm too european to listen to dubstep. Oakleys aren't really a thing in the UK, I'll probably just wear raybans.
