5/3/1 deloads so often though...I considered it at one point, but it just doesn't seem like my type of routine. I could be totally off point with this, but I dunno.

I've recently started an upper lower split and I'm really liking it. I'd definitely recommend it

Dump the deloads and periodize.

Or you could also try the Hepburn 8x2 approach. It's definitely hardcore. You only add a rep per workout, but it can add over 50 pounds to each lift during the course of a year.

Never heard of it. Is there a spreadsheet/program I can download from somewhere to look over?

Whatever you choose, don't do it completely by the book, switch it up here and there a bit to better suite your personal strengths and or weakness'. Taylor it to yourself as much as possible.
