With beginners and people that are returning to training after a long break we like to spend the first few weeks of training focusing on the basic compound movements, training exercises such as the squat, bench and deadlift multiple times per week in order to work on form. We usually run a 8 week training program where we test our one rep max in the squat, bench and deadlift in the final week.

Below is a sample training week, a link to the full training program is at the bottom of the post.
