    Since I have new goals and Routines that will be going on, I guess I should start by breaking everything down for everyone. For Bench I will be looking to follow The Gorilla Method. For Squat I will be doing a 5x5 till the knee is 100%, then will give Smolov squatting a try. Dead lifts
    I will be following a plan Steve, has used.

    Benching week Goal's(all weeks are 3x3
    week 1:275
    week 2:280
    week 3:285
    week 4:290
    week 5:295
    week 6:300
    week 7: Test 1 RM

    Dead's
    1) Deadlifts 6 sets x 3 reps with 65% of your one rep max.

    Each week add 10 pounds. When you can't safely hit 3 reps on a set, drop it. Never perform a rep if your form starts to slip.

    So let's say you start with 250 pounds on deadlifts and hit 6 sets x 3 reps. You add weight for 2 weeks, but when you get to 280 pounds the last set feels spotty and you are unable to hit 3 safe reps. Drop that set and continue adding weight.

    You continue this pattern of adding a weekly weight, and dropping sets until you can perform only one set of 3 reps. At that point take a week break, come back and test your max.

    Squat's: I will be starting at bar again

    Week Break Down:
    Mondays: Bench&Dead lift
    Wednesday:Squat
    Thursday: Dead lift& Bench
    Sunday:Squat
