Here's one I stumbled on that I had not seen before. I believe it is out of the Reg Park Journal, as this is not one of the Strength & Muscular Bulk course workouts.

Mon - Wed - Fri

1. Barbell Curl 4 x 6-8
2. Seated BN Press 4 x 6-8
3. Bench Press 5 x 5
4. Barbell Row 4 x 6-8
5. Barbell Squat 5 x 5
6. Deadlift 5 x 5

PS I found a post on Iron Online that characterized it this way:

His routine 3 days per week,circa 1950.

mon-wed-fri

barbell curl 4x6-8
seated press behind the neck 4x6-8
benchpress 5x5
barbell rows 4x6-8
barbell squat 5x5
deadlift 5x5

diet

red meat
orange juice
milk
eggs
6 x protein drinks (milk/honey/cream)

and lots of hard work

The question remains.
Was Park's cemetery plot 5x5 or 6x8.
I'm guessing 6x8 'cause he was one big dude.

There's more than a few old school routines that put BB Curls first. While it's hard to argue w. old Reg and I can see curls as a decent upper body warm-up, I would imagine putting them first would not be beneficial for the work ahead in the rows and deadlift.

Thoughts, anyone?

Don`t you think they might havé recuperated a bit while doing seated bn press and the bench press?
It might be a routine for someone who prioritises his biceps (and shoulders as the press behind neck is before the bench).

His workouts almost always put curls first, as do several others as you note. That said, I believe he recommended 3-5 minute rest periods, so recuperation was not as big a deal as on faster paced routines. YMMV, but for me DL does not impact arms much, rowing does though. Interesting observation though.

Doesn`t some people believe that you have to train biceps if you deadlift,otherwise(the reasoning goes I think) there is a good chance that you`ll tear your biceps?

I don't know of any bodybuilder that wouldn't train their biceps so...
