Recalculating 531 Percentage Due to Jump in 1MR?

Here's the deal. I'm not positive, but I think my Deadlift percentages are off. In order to PR for the last few cycles, I've had to hit 10 reps in week 3 - which suggests a much higher 1MR than the 1MR off which I am basing my weekly percentages. For example, I'm currently basing my percentages...

Question Weightlifting shoes for low-bar squats

I'm thinking about getting a new pair of shoes to train in. I've considered shoes with an elevated heel (I think they're called olympic shoes) as I've heard they're pretty good for squats and deadlifts. I do low-bar squats, and I was wondering whether olympic shoes would have a positive effect...

I've very recently become interested in switching over to a powerlifting style of training.

Mainly pulled sumo, got...

is it odd for paused bench to feel easier/be stronger than tng bench?

idk, i guess because i can really get tension in my lats from the pause the weight just explodes up. TnG only my pushing muscles work and it feels tougher and more fidgety from the lack of tightness. i also sink the bar into my chest if that changes anything

is the OHP worth treating it as a main movement?

Alright so I'm new here in the powerlifting forum. My first question to you guys is, is the overhead press useful enough for general strength purposes and shoulder health to treat it as a main movement along with your big 3? Me personally, I think lifting chit overhead is alpha as fuark.
