Keep up the strong workouts!!!
thanks brother. Sorry to hear about the wicked headaches. At least you're enjoying your time awake!
Have you ever had an MRI or CET scan of your head done?

5/3/1 was the routine I ran the longest and it got me to a 2pps bench, 3.5pps squat, and 4.5pps deadlift (back when I used to good morning the squat and RDL the deadlift). I ran that for 13 months.
The most fun was probably Jamie Lewis' chaos and pain singles, doubles, and triples routine that I ran over the summer of 2012. That helped me to reach a 5pps deadlift and 245lb paused bench. It had flexibility, intensity and variety.
However in terms of progression methodology, the rep goal system, which I'm currently embarking on makes the most logical sense and doesn't mess with % and $hit which I like considering I tend to overanalyze and calculate things lol.
Progression based on Preliplin's chart was also great and I followed a routine based on that before the toe break incident. That helped me to pull 525 (re: RDL) in the gym at a BW of 178lbs.
