We all know fit is always talking about SS, SL, ICF, Candito 6-week, Greyskull and brosplits but it's time to pick one as the champion. Feel free to add any other routine since I just posted the most talked on /fit/

Which one is the BEST routine for beginners?

Do we even need this thread? Just pick SS or SL. Stick with it for 6 months then change to a routine that fit your goals.
>>
>>32057482
a routine that you stick to
>>
SS without p.clean
>>
SS for strength SL for aesthetics. Both are strength routiens but switching power cleans for rows is more top heavy.

Blaha lookin good
I dont see all the reasons to hate

Guy with 4/3/5 stats (with some change) here.

Its all about goals. If your goal is to look good SS is a poor choice. ICF is to much volume for a beginner (imo). SL would be a good choice, so would a simple push/pull/legs or upper lower.

I think SL is a better choice than SS because of better back development.

My personal choices were
Beginner: SS+chins (I love power cleans. I still do them)
Intermediate: 5/3/1 BBB (made great size and strength gains
Still intermediate: PPLxPPL
Where I am now (low advanced) Back on 5/3/1 BBB because it is where I got the best gains. Im on cycle 2 right now and Deadlift BBB is a fucking killer I tell you what.

>4/3/5

Squat 3 pl8?

why so low compared to the others?
>>
>>32058449
I meant that as Squat, Bench, Dead, my mistake
>>
>>32057482
Depends on your goals and level of fitness, faget.
>>
>>32058449

He ordered them Squat/Bench/DL, the same way they're ordered in competition
>>
Candito
Greyskull
SS

Candito will be more attractive (the program) to beginners since you can add a few more accessories and more days at the gym

Greyskull will allow you to add any accessories, and the amrap is a nice touch

SS will allow you as well but rippetoe advises to add only a few

ICF has too much shit, it would be better as a 3x5 with all the shit or 5x5 minus a lot of the shit, which would basically be SL
>>
>>32058345
Because he's pathetic. Every video he lifts in he has to defend his shit lifts, and he's fat as fuck and can't cut effeciently for shit. He's like rippletoe but never good at all and never had an original idea.
>>
5x5 is the best you offered, but if I could do it over I'd do a 10x3 like Jamie Lewis suggests in his books. Really as long as you do every big compound a lot it doesn't matter. After 6 months you should be looking into more advanced stuff and inserting yourself into crowds of people that match your goals.

If I'm cutting as a fat ass with no strength should I start a lifting program? I only ask because of "you won't make gains on a deficit".

Thanks
>>
>>32058784
first, if you're tubby who gives a shit about gains you'll never see anyway

cut

second, you'll make noob gains quickly regardless, albeit a little bit less than you otherwise would, but the difference will be negligible as long as you're cutting relatively slowly
>>
>>32058784
You will make gains especially as a fatass. If you don't believe me watch videos from Scooby he is way more qualified than anyone here.

REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE STFU WITH YOUR STICKY
FIT ALWAYS TALKS ABOUT SS, SL, GSLP BUT THERE IS NO CONSENSUS
>>
>>32058862
actual fitness thread
>read the sticky hurr

Dude you blow. Go back to you loltaytay threads and piss off you cunt.
>>
When I first started I got confused and did the SL workout 3x5 with SS progression, and it worked pretty well.
so really it's about what workouts you want to do and how you're able to progress.

Only correct answer itt. Some people do better by starting slowly or are motivated by frequent accomplishments like new PRs. *x5 programs are great for those people.

Some people gotta do shit all the time to internalize the habit, so they should go with a split. A split can offer more variety for people who don't want to do the same five lifts for months.

A hambelocetus that's scared to go to a gym could easily start C25K and for them it would be the best beginner program.

Everyone is telling OP to read the sticky because the sticky explicitly states that the best beginner program is one you'll stick to.
>>
Not OP but I had literally just decided on Blaha 5x5
Now I'm having doubts again

>remember last tuesday, first time in gym again in months, lifted too much with biceps/triceps, never have I experienced such soreness, literally couldn't extend my arms, couldn't lift for 4 days
>im gonna spend the downtime doing a nutrition program and finding a good beginners program
>Blaha 5x5
>See this thread
>Too much weight
REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

>inb4 it's just one anon on /fit/ man
We're all just ones on /fit/ bruh

I WANNA DO HYPETROPHY/MUH AESTHETICS MAN
WHAT THE FUCK DO I DO
>>
Ain't nobody wanna talk about this?
>>
>>32059839
>I want aesthetics

P/P/L 6 day a week split, make sure your diet is exceptional though, and get plenty of sleep. Personally I find lower carb diets better, but up to you.

>>32059839
i'm doing ICF 5x5 and i'm seeing a lot of progress.
but it is time consuming, i literally can't do it in less than 2 hours if i do stretching and warm up
