So I think I may be past newbie gains. The only real program I have ever run is Tri-Phase which I am about to start the 3rd phase in now. After I finish I will do a 1RM for Squat, Deads, and Bench to really see where I am.

My PRs for my 3 lifts are:

225 X 2 for bench
305 X 5 for squats (but I wasn't past parallel, this is what I need to work on most)
365 X 2 for deads

Like I said earlier I never really did squats or deads before I started lifting heavy 4 months ago. So I know I have to work on those. Also, I'm 5'9.

I don't plan on competing until I reach my goals that I listed a few posts ago.

Bench: 250
Deads: 450
Squats: 350

Those are the minimum.
You'll be able to find out if you still get beginner gains pretty quick; usually they don't stop after 4 months. I think you're good for a 235 Bench and 385 Deadlift if you max now; not sure about your Squat, since it wasn't to depth.

I would also suggest maxing on OHP, since it will be an important accessory movement.

ARe you aiming to compete in the 181lb or 198lb class in the future? One requires a bulk, the other one maintenance.
