Personally, squatting 3x a week ain't to taxing; for what its worth I use the oly squat/front squat. The deadlift is what I'd worry about -- on a program like this you want to keep the dead volume low only go all out every few weeks. A beginner however will be able to get away with heavy-ish deads frequently because the max is always changing.

The exercise selection looks fine. A push can be any big movement that has you push something. As for the deadlifts, I'd throw them on day 3 and put cleans on day 2 OR keep cleans and deadlifts on day 3 and each week just do one (w1 - clean, w2 - dead, w3 - clean, w4 - dead...). Past that it really comes down to sets/reps/weight and how you progress.

I would personally give Starting Strength a run for a few months or until you stall. At 81 kg I believe you have a lot more strength in ya than the max's you listed. If you run SS correctly, your 5RM's for the squat and dead should easily pass your bodyweight.

Shadow, just curious as to why 2 days instead of the 3?
