I decided to try Clint Darden's AC/DC method after doing my Wendler 5/3/1 routine - 340x4, 390x3, 430x4. It was completely exhausting but a really fun experience. Counted +/- 38 reps of 225lbs. Not too shabby, haha.
After having the worst deadlift session of my life and missing 460 three times, I had to do something to make up for it. I pulled 455 for a double conventional 6 days ago and I barely got +5lbs to my knees. The second attempt I didn't even break it off the floor. The deficit is 3.5-4 inches and the weight is 415 + 45lbs in chains.
LOL! I recently started squatting and put up a form check video for the weightroom on Reddit. Your video is in related content when I play mine. small world huh.
Small world indeed! You have nice depth. Just watch that butt wink!
Edit: Decided to try a beltless deadlift cycle to improve my form and not just grip&rip. I have a big problem with not being patient off the floor with deadlifts and it's the main thing keeping me out of the 500's.
Not too excited, but I'm very pleased with my speed once the weight breaks the floor.

I passed my final CPA exam on 8/31 of this year and decided to get back into going to the gym in September now that I had time. Kind of fucked around for 2 months just trying to get into the routine of actually going. Then I decided to get serious and started Ice Cream fitness. I'm on my third week now and this **** is addicting. I have really altered my diet and am riding the noob gains for now. Feels good. Progress so far:
5x5 Bench - 135lbs -> 150lbs
5x5 squat - 155lbs -> 170lbs
5x5 Bent over row - 100lbs -> 120lbs
1x5 deadlift - 135lbs -> 170lbs (I started light on this because I didn't want to **** up my back)
5x5 standing press -> 60lbs -> 75lbs
