    Any recommendations?

    So I've trained bb style for the 3.5 years I've lifted (which I severely regret). Started first strength program, Madcow, about 4.5 months ago. I lost strength in some of the main lifts last year while cutting. So, I entered in most of the lifts light, squats made a huuge jump and I finally failed them, even though I reset another time w/o failing b/c I lost some weight while being away.

    Calculated 1RM at 167ish lbs morning
    Squat (high bar) - 338lbs (video from the side, slightly below parallel)
    Bench - 300lbs paused (meet)
    Deadlift - 405+ (notice I tend to put my butt too high and use too little leg, b/c I'm weak off the floor. really working on this, so i couldn't do as much w/ proper form)
    Military Press - 180lbs

    Question
    I'm thinking of possibly switching to another routine and having a similar progression b/c -
    1. It's recommended by this routine to do high bar. Switching to low bar could have a negative impact on it? If I can switch to low bar and it really works, I'll stay on this. I've already made a 60+lb jump on high bar squats, not sure if I can keep going.
    2. Each lifting day is starting to take 2+ fuking hours when I make sure I hit my lifts and it's getting annoying. Especially friday.

    I've got some body builder friends who have made the switch over to powerlifting, and they all make the same general mistake which I hope you can avoid. They don't eat enough. Something about the BB mentality leaves a huge gap in strength and recovery from heavy weight...and it's the amount they eat. Lift big, eat big, and sleep big and you'll get what you're looking for.
    Bench- 405 lbs
    Squat- 530 lbs

    Yea, no need to worry about that. I count macros and calories to make sure i gain a certain amount per week/month. I still gotta keep my bodybuilder side in mind, so i cant gain 'that' much. Im doing 3/month usually.

    inb4 gain more
