Deadlift: 155# (but can definitely go higher.)
Chest press: 115#
Overhead Press: 85#

I'm 5'7", 155lbs. I mentioned this in the latest few posts, but I'm definitely not eating enough. The irregular schedule of university life makes it difficult. For example: right now it's almost 7pm and all i've had today are two scones and a banana... I'm trying to eat as much as I can, but it's been hard so far.

Or something... :-)
I was wondering about the goals because usually a person's DL is on par if not higher than the back squat.

I apologize for not reading through the stuff you had posted. I know university life can make it tough to eat but it is possible. You can't/shouldn't do SS on top of all that other stuff if you in a caloric deficit.
