Looking for an old school A/B split
 
I've been reading up alot on the guys like Reg Park and Steve Reeves and I like their style of training and I want to run an A/B split 3x a week. so far here's what i'm thinking (I also want to use 20 rep squats)

A
Bench Press
Barbell Rows
20 Rep Squats

B
Deadlift (1 stabilizer set)
BTN Press
Chin-up/Pull-up
Close Grip Bench Press

I know it's nowhere near done but it's just to give you guys a basic idea of what i'd like to be doing. any ideas?

A/B split is a real good choice for a program.

Let me dig through a few old programs I've got. I'll get some stuff posted up.

Gotta cook dinner right now though. GL

I like yours SO. It's very close to mine. Pullups are a great idea.

i saw that one on the M&S main site but i'd really like to lift 3x a week, could that one just be used 3x a week? just rotating A,B,A B,A,B?

Christy mentions that for his A/B. I think you could try it, and if the deadlift is too much, have a light and heavy deadlift day.

as of now i'm planning on doing reg park style deads so only 1 set so i don't think it will be too taxing

check out Sean Sullivans page, he has an A/B split that looks pretty good.
