What to do when you fail deadlifts in stronglifts 5x5?

It says to switch to 3x5 after deloading and failing a couple of times for the other lifts but what about the deadlift since it's just 1x5? Recently failed at 140kg deadlift ☹️

Any powerlifters eat smaller portions of food like BBers do?

Some people debate the whole eating smaller meals throughout the day speeds your metabolism but in terms of convenience of health and performance can eating smaller portions throughout the day keep you at optimal performance and also keep a more pleasant physique?

Gym Recommendations in Houston, TX

I'll be in Houston in October 2018 and was wondering what the best PL gym is to train a few days. So far I have circled Texas Barbell Syndicate and Texas Strength Weightlifting Center but I am open to suggestions. Would be good to have a gym where I can get some training points too.

Banded vs. Reverse banded? Which helps build strength and speed with bench press?

I feel like hanging bands from the top of the power rack and putting them on a bar can help me grind out better than putting them on the bottom. Any opinions from bench brahs in here? Trying to break out of a plateau

Grade 3 Quad tear.

How long does it take to return to previous strength levels? I have been working like a mad man and I am about 90ish percent to where I was after 6 mths. I did 10 weeks physical therapy and been full go training wise for the last 3 mths. It feels like the recovery road is taking forever.

BUFFALO style squat bar

What are your thoughts BUFFALO style squat bar? I've never used one. Looks like it would take stress off shoulders and elbows , whilst letting you squat in same style. I'm wary though of the fact this bar seems to be overweight. I like to know exactly what a bar weighs if possible. Thanks
