First day I've ever went heavy dead lifting I've always used 135 for fear of hurting my back but I knew I was pretty strong at it

Started with 135-10 reps
205-3 reps
255-3 reps
275-3 reps
295-3 reps
I don't have anymore weights so I stopped there

My squat really needs work I've got descent form but its been a really long time since I squatted heavy with free weights i always used the smith machine an its really lacking. My max is probably only about 250 right now could use some advice on what I could do to improve should I be doin legs 3 times a week or what

Don't use the Smith machine. Just search the workouts on this site and follow one you like.

I quit using it since I'm actually training now. My worst problem is getting low enough I almost touch the ground trying to get my hips below my knees
