-OHS- I think 175 is a PR for me? so only 10 pounds below BW and after being sick all week.
I would say 4--6 weeks and your doing BW for 5 reps. Perhaps start at 135 x 5 reps x 3 sets, warmup with even spaced intervals ala SS and increase 5lbs every session.

In kg that would be something like:

20.0kg x 5 reps x 2 sets
30.0kg x 5 reps
40.0kg x 3 reps
50.0kg x 2 reps
60.0kg x 5 reps x 3 sets

increase top weight 2.5kg every session if possible and adjust the warmup weights accordingly, so they are even spaced. That should do the trick...
