WTF is with my lifting? (serious)

WTF is with my lifting? (serious)
Like im on a 3x5 now trying to get some muscle on again in a short period of time (hadnt lifted for a while due to hockey conflicts)
ive been doin it for about a month and a week and my squat has sky rocketed while my other lifts barely change.
im at 355 squat (3x5)
then only 275 deadlift (3x5)
165 bench (omg) (3x5)
my row and military press have gone up, but its weird.....idk, any thoughts on how to get bench and dead up to par?

Answer:

I'm on Rippetoes and having the same problem :(

Answer:

1) are you squatting deep (past parallel, almost crouching)?
2) are you leaning forward (you shouldn't be)?
3) are your knee coming inward when you push up (shouldn't)?
i was on Rippetoe since January. i'm still doing the same exercises but i do different ranges in cycles (3x8, 3x5, 3x3). imo, the progress is slow, although my lifts have all improved a lot.

My deads and bench improved tremendously on the 3x5 but my squats were terrible.

Answer:

You prob need to have a better warm up. Or start setting pr for the day and get it and dont baby ur way out.

Answer:

I'd double check my squat form, concentrate on really hitting your bench and dead lift, do it with 1RM intensity every lift.

my squat is very strong, form I mean. I go deep, and do it correct....often get told by bigger guys there that i have great form and stuff...
its just like, i see a difference in my strenght and stuff.....like apperance wise, you can tell i put on muscle..
also, where do i go from the rippeote, once i plateau?

Anyway, just try to switch up your exercises. Do decline bench or dumbbell bench for chest.

Answer:
