    I would be very happy with 225/305/315 for five bench/squat/deadlift by May.

    LOL omg not much! I stopped lifting in December to prepare for exams. January was trying to get back to my previous PRs. Bench is now 190 for 5, Squats are 270 for 5 but much more confident - I've been doing box squats and speed squats and partial Anderson squats to help my sticking point which is around the half-squat position. The box and speed squats are super helpful, actually, bar speed and confidence rapidly improved just from doing two sets of them the week before. Deadlifts were at 285 for 5 with not-so-good form - my back had some unlocking and pretty significant rounding as the bar left the ground, although bar speed was always good with a rounded back - so I've decided to dial it down to focus on my form. I plan to go on 265 with uncompromising straight-back form all the way and all the way down this Friday. My deadlift training came from Starting Strength which just advocates training deadlift once a week for one set of five, but I think I would benefit from greater volume - 2 sets at the working weight and a back-off set of 225 or so to focus on the form and movement under less pressure.

    I train only twice a week now so I have more time for school - squats and bench on one day, and deadlift, overhead press, and some more bench volume two days later. I also incorporate assistance exercises (squat variations, dips, round-back straight-leg deadlift for spinal erectors, back extensions) on the second day since I have four days of break until my next training day and I would rather all that volume occur after deadlifts.

    Hard to juggle with school, haha. Mostly it's tough trying to get enough rest. Bench is at 185, squat at 275 (both for 5). Deadlifts are weaker than squats, like at 255 or so with good form, so I'm just trying to get that up to 315 for 5 over the next while. I don't mind letting my bench and squat stagnate for a while, since it was really fatiguing for me to get there.

You've kept the same pair for over a year. The worst is now over! Wait... wasn't this just supposed to be for fun?
