    Squat is getting terribly heavy.

    Have you already written about your programming and why you use 1x5? I am curious.

    Congrats on the impressive numbers.

    I rather experiment with programming and use existing ideas. Currently I use a single set for all the movements, not only deadlift because I have no much time and desire to spend much time in the gym. In case of bench, press and squat I simply do: 10xempty bar, 5x60%, 5x70%, 5x80%, 5x90% and 5x100%. Where 100% is the weight used in the top set. In case of deadlift it is 5x60%, 3x70%, 2x80%, 1x90% and 5x100%. I alternate press and deadlift with bench and squat. The idea comes from Radically Simple Strength of Paul Horn (Novice Template C to be precise). It is just a bit easier to recover and mentally one heavy set is easier to manage. Generally Starting Strength Linear Progression is going to give you better progress if you have enough time and recovery. I struggle with both time and recovery so I prefer the minimalist approach. Of course such approach is not going to work for too long and require adjustments soon.

    Press: 1x5@54.0kg (118lb)
    Deadlift: 1x4@170.0kg (374lb)

    The 5th rep of the deadlift super slowly reached right below the knee level and didn't pass the knee.
