    Some background:

    After jacking around with split programs and "functional" training for about 3 years, a fellow trainer and good friend of mine let me borrow his SS book. Since then I've been playing around with SS and various other programs for about two years now.

    Ive gone from 185lbs to 215lbs @ 5 ft 7in

    Here are some of my recent PR's

    Squats~ 1RM @ 475lbs
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Xgib30_MRQ

    Bench Press~ 1RM @ 250lbs
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcnYLkTGVps

    Deadlifts~ 1RM @ 500lbs
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQHibmspEmU

    Press~ 5RM @ 170lbs
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nACtzhfy5P4

    My immediate goals are to squat 500lbs, bench 300, break my deadlift plateau and deadlift over 500lbs, and to press my bodyweight.

    Think I'm gonna end progression on SS soon and am looking for good TM template. My goals are pretty same than yours Anyway, one question:

    So your texas method template is:

    Monday:
    Squat/Bench/Power Clean

    Wednesday:
    Squat/Overhead Press/Chin Ups

    Friday:
    Squat/Bench/Deadlift

    Do you switch between Overhead press and Bench press on weekly basis... like this week: bench mon and fri, press wed and next week: press mon and fri, bench wed?
