Your third paragraph was interesting..about not using under 5 reps..is it still ok to try PR:s in every 2-3 months? About eating. Im indeed at the moment trying to eat very clean. I try to get protein at least 2.5 grams/kg but limit carbohydrates under 50 grams/day except training days. Also taking L-Glutamine, Creatine, Leucine etc.. So basically Im really trying to train quite a closely like a powerlifter and eat like a bodybuilder, is that wrong way to do it?

Hmm... I really shoud concentrate more on 8+ reps on lower body exercises, then. By the way, is squat and deadlift variations plus quads enough for legs or should I add leg press etc also...?
Regarding PRs...absolutely...you can test your max lifts. I just wouldn't want you training in lower rep ranges as a staple.

Btw, no one here would laugh at pictures. We ban people like that. We're here to help each other make changes.

It sounds like you gained over 30 pounds your first year. I would definitely try to tone it down a bit and maybe use a more moderate diet such as cycling 2 week bulking and maintenance periods, or using a zig zag eating approach and eat more on training days. There are many ways to do this.

Regarding diet I would throw in one day a week where you eat higher carbs, possibly on the day before heavy squats. it is definitely NOT wrong to train heavy and eat like a bodybuilder. That's what I've always done, and I think training heavy on core compounds lifts is the key to fast muscle gains.
