The following starters are more strength focused, with more sets focusing on fewer exercises for building push,pull and squat strength.

I thought these had already been posted. Not a problem. Pendlay and Rippetoe are the next generations answers to Bill Starr, I.e. good common sense and basic strength training.

The Brycle Lane 50/20 link is dead. I've tried to search up a replacement but I can't find anything live.

That link (posted 4 years ago) is now dead. However, I saw this on Contreras' blog:

Interesting analysis of some of the more popular beginner powerlifting programs. http://www.powerliftingtowin.com/powerlifting-programs/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Of course the author is trying to make his own program look best but it is a very comprehensive list.
