I echo this very simple suggestion.

I have yet to see anyone who wasn't predisposed to greatness get what I would consider to be an extraordinary aesthetic results from a "program."

Why not just try a standard 5-day split like so many of us used successfully?

I agree, but I attribute that to a new - or relatively new - lifter's lack of experience. I've been lifting a long time, and I've never heard of most of the websites/trainers that people mention in these threads. When I was a newbie, I looked around in the gym, spotted the dude that "looked" the best and/or who lifted serious weight and asked the pertinent questions. There was a lot of trial & error as well, but that's with anything. I was also never afraid to ask somebody for help.
