Best place to start is looking up Westside Barbell's basic training template. Then instead of doing a 1 rep max, do a 3 or 5 rep max on your heavy days. You are still in the beginner mode, so a 1 rep max will not help you near as much as the extra time under tension. This is what I did starting out. Pay attention to technique--learn it, read about all of it (search Dave Tate and Louie Simmons articles, to start). Never underestimate the power of technique--you might think that something you are stuck on is a "weak muscle group" only to find after you have actually worked on the technique your poundages go up.
Bear in mind It's just like learning a sport like football or baseball or basketball--you need strong fundamentals...then on TOP of the fundamentals you need to bring your technical work to a new level in order to succeed, not just the muscles. The best qb, or hell even guard (lineman) isn't always the guy who is the strongest in the weight room, it's the guy with the best grasp of efficient footwork, throwing mechanics, etc. Same goes for learning the supposedly "simple" power lifts. If learning and working on technique is good enough for 800 lb squatters to improve, it's good enough for you too :).
here is the link to the 9 week long basic beginner's training program Dave Tate put up years ago. It's the same one I used, it's great, works great. As i said, use a 3 RM or 5 RM on your "Max Effort" days as the first lift instead of a 1 rep max.
Here's a basic, beginner level explanation of the template:
Bear in mind the only way to be successful long term--besides never giving up and not skipping workouts--is to read and educate yourself more and more on training. If you skimp on the self-education and reading, you'll hurt your long term gains because you will not have learned enough to adapt your training to your needs as you get stronger or older.
