Compound movement split

With all this talk about using compound movements to get big versus using isolation. What kind of training split could one do and what exercises on those days and how many days a week and all that jazz, because I want to give this a whirl because my bis have stayed stagnant for the past six months. Any feedback would be appreciated.

What we’ve done is Saturday: squat/dead - Sunday: bench / DB Incline (ab work both days). Monday: (just me) shoulder/arm.

Now we're doin' the 5X5 - and it's a 3-day a week training schedule. Friday, Sunday and Tuesday.

If your legs are your weakest link, I'd start my schedule with squats and I've always liked to include deads on that day, too. 3-days a week would be sufficient.
