I like the concept behind BBS; however, it is much harder than you'd think to work out in this fashion. For one, you look goofy in a gym of people lifting conventionally. As well, you really need a spotter because you are max lifting and using negatives.

Enough volume in the weight room to require a split is considered excessive by primal standards.
2-3 short full-body workouts of a few basic compounds is the rx
Free weight or bw really just depends on preference.
You might not like the ful HIT/BBS road but the slow resps sure are good at reducing peak forces and being easy on the joints.
Add a sprint/interval workout each week
