No worries, those are valid concerns.

First, how complex is it for someone to rotate their main exercise by body part once every 3 weeks or so (conjugate system)? How complex is it to test a max and use a percentage load for speed work?

To address the second point, I think the same beginner will make even BETTER progress with a conjugate based system. Why would I not want to give them the best results?
