And even so, after two or three cycles, I'd be PR'ing with regularity.

1) Squat Bench
2) Press Deadlift

So perhaps:

Squat - 3 singles followed by 3 sets of 3
Bench - 3 singles followed by 3 sets of 3

Then on the second day of the week:

Press - 3 singles followed by 3 sets of 3
Deadlifts - 3 singles followed by 3 sets of 3

Doing while training twice a week is not a bad way to go, and if you can manage three times then great! Even better! Just an option to mull over.
Wow, thanks. I'm going to keep this tucked up my sleeve.
