so after a long year and a half of working out and making mistakes along the way to figure out my body i got my deadlift up to 315. it was awsome!! my second to last set was 265 for 8 and i figure what the hell lets bump it up to 315 for my last set and i just slowly ripped out 4 reps very controlled.
so far my squat is 315 and now my deadlift is. just gotta work on that pesky bench thats sittin steady at 185 lol. still experimenting with form/weight/grip. if i get the other stuff to go up why not bench right?
ahhh i just wanna go back and do it again it was such a good feeling.
that's great congrats

Nice job! With your dimensions and how high your squat is, I see your deadlift going up even more. I feel for you on the bench.
I remember when I first hit 315 lbs for deads. It's an awesome feeling. I think it was the first time I couldn't help but smile in the gym.
Best way to cheat on deadlifts...
Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial
Yeah, it's pretty sweet that you can squat the same weight that you dead.

That's awesome! I'm gonna go for a 1RM 315 next week, so I'll be sharing the same joy that you are now. Hehehe.
