Which is better?
 
I know that there's no real answer since everyone is different, but generally speaking, which would be better for someone who isnt beginner, but is out of shape.

A Starting Strength type of program with lifting M,W,F and light metcon T,TH.



Or a ME Black Box schedule that looks like:

week one - MWF - Metcon, T - full body lift, Th - lower body lift;

week two - T,TH - metcon, M - upper body lift, W - full bodylift, F - lower body lift

week three - etc, etc...

If your just looking to get back into shape then I would assume the ME black box would be the better focus.

Depends on priorities. If strength is the priority, the SS-based program would get my vote. If conditioning is the priority, the MEBB.
