    I read in the "routine" thread, however, with my work schedule, I'll have nothing to do for over an hour in the morning, so I would like to have a five-day course. Therefore, I went further down and saw this:

    However, this says that it is much more for experienced lifters. Would I be able to see good gains with the second program, despite my inexperience?

    Go with christophers routine. You won't have anything to do for over an hour in those mornings, but a better base > *. You could potentially hurt your joints or something. After a few months on christophers, go ahead and refine your routine.

    Edit: Maybe you can nap during those breaks, get an extra hour of sleep every night.

    A couple more questions: Christopher's routine is:
    Is his necessarily better than the first one I posted? Also, if I do the three day, then I guess I could just do treadmill/cardio for an hour.

    If anything, the first routine and second routine you posted would be generally the same in terms of being for a "more experienced lifter." With christophers, there are several compound exercises to get you into the mix of lifting, increasing numbers as well as strengthening joints for future exercises.
