Yes, it can be a bit of a bitch trying to work this shit out

What I would suggest would be to take one of there splits as written, such as
Day one:
Deadlift
Overhead press
Weighted pullup/chinup

Day two:
Squat
Benchpress
Bent over row

If you want you could turn this into a three day split for the week, such as
Day one:
Squat
Benchpress
Barbell rows

Day two:
Deadlift
Overhead press
pullups/chins(weighted if you like)

Day three:
Squat
Benchpress
Barbell rows

This would be a basic Bill Starr 5x5, which is linked in the FAQ. In fact that is probably the best routine for someone like you to start with. The idea is to add 5lbs a week while sticking with the above exercises and rep/set range. The link explains it very well.

It would be very much worth your while to familiarise yourself with that thread and most of the links posted in it.
