There are plenty of charts out there but differences in levers do impact things.

Lyle,
I know you get plenty of suggestions for articles, but if part 3 of this isn't finished could you possibly mention beginning weight training in the context of beginning dieting as well?
The conundrum for overfat newbies that land here for information on effectively losing fat, is that immediately they see that weight training is a force multiplier for their fat loss program and jump in. As the newbie magic wears off, the first decision branch appears. Continue to work on the fat loss? Or follow the progression in the gym? Or both? If fat loss is the plan, then how to 'contain' increasing WO volume without bonking?Does the individual move to a flex/EOD scheme before reaching 15% bf as a compromise? If not, and plan is to
to continue to lose fat to 15% ...'am i missing out on my newbie gains window?' (ouch! painful, lose sleep over it type of thoughts!)
Anyway, a discussion of the interaction between the diet and training from day 1 to the beginner/intermediate zone would surely help with this type of confusion. ...just an idea, and sorry if this is ...'foggy'!

It uses 3x5 (1x5 on Deads and 5x3 on Cleans, not that those specifics matter in this context)

But what about folks with physique aspirations (whether competition or just looking better naked)? As much as many will disagree with me here, there is no exercise that someone with physique aspirations is required to do in their training since since

Same article...

Put more directly: the best exercise for hypertrophy of a given muscle group is the one that targets that muscle for a given individual and provides sufficient tension overload to trigger a growth response. There are other requirements (mainly revolving around safety and the ability to progressive load them)
