My opener will be 314, and I was thinking of going with 336 as a second, then based off the speed of that ill either go 347 or 352 for a third.

Should main lifts be the same?

My lifts are nowhere close to each other. Deadlift I did 435 for 2 and 205 bench for 1 and 290 squat for 1. Should they be as close to the same weight as possible, or is it ok for them to be way off?
