    Welcome, glad you started a journal.
    Just a suggestion...Your routine seems kind of limited. Adding a few more exercises wouldn't hurt and will probably help your lifts progress. Also, deadlifting every-other-day will burn you out and cause you to stall.

    I've heard of it. I know he really likes the ultra-abbreviated routines. I'm sure it would work fine for a short-term specialization routine.

    Deadlift:

    270lbs x 5/5/5 <-- Problem seems to be that cardiovascular system is giving up before muscular endurance runs out, this will hopefully improve as I get a bit more conditioned.

    Good one there, keep it up.
    I have the same problem with running out of "wind" before I reach failure if I use any kind of volume on the bigger lifts.

    Thanks!
    I'm keeping the rest times short on the 'volume' sets so hopefully this will help with my conditioning.
