Default Blake's strength + Olympic Lifting Log

Whatup,
I am a 19 year old college freshman who has been weight training for around 3 years. Unfortunatly, the first two years were horribly unproductive as they consisted of curling, benching, and nautilus machines. I have done Starting Strength off and on since then. My prs are 3x5 low bar back squat for 270, bench 197.5, oh press 127.5, deadlist 1x5 300. I am off these prs around 5% on average except for back squat which required a major reset because of caving knees and dominant quads. Currrent weight is 205 lbs at a height of 6'4"

I have done olympic lifting for about 3 weeks and would welcome any and all help and comments. I plan to work 5 singles of each the snatch and the clean and jerk with 1 minute breaks inbetween. My strength work will be low bar back squat on monday and friday with front squat on wednesday. I plan to do 3x5 on all exercises until progress cannot be made and then I will switch to texas method. Bench and oh press will alternate as well as wide and narrow grip pull ups. Deadlift 1x5 on friday.

Belor are my most recent workouts.
