That would be fine IF, and that is a big IF. You work down to that from a much higher rep range over the course of several weeks. Most powerlifters dont like to hear this, but I think at your current levels you need several weeks of sets in the 6-10 ranges to keep building a base of strength.

Keep in mind that there are tons of ways to get stronger, might take some time to find what is right for you.
