    Ok you want to increase your squat by at least 65 lbs and you Bench by 40lbs in about 6 months give or take. This is no easy feat if you are a seasoned lifter.

    My suggestions:
    531 powerlifting routine. Map out moderate and conservative goals that you know you can attain, and train as hard as you can. Dont worry about your 531 max...just worry about moving weight.

    3 day a week works great for me...4 days seems to be a bit much at times when powerlifting.

    I like to use partial lifts at the END of my working sets(which are proper ROM) with supramaximal weight at least once every 2-3 weeks. Preferibly before a deload week. I use this so my body gets use to weight that is far heavier then what i can acually squat allowing for extra appositional growth of the bone as well as allowing my body to "remember" the weight. Usually this allow for my to increase my working sets and not have to worry about my back or core giving out...only my legs.

    Diet should be slightly above maintence to allow for lean gains. Very high protein and fat work well for me...other rely more on carbs. This is depending on you.

    Bench: work on triceps for your lock out, shoulders, and rest/pauses. Train to move the weight as fast as you can and as controlled as possible. Think of it like a controlled explosion(works for me). Also work on your form.

    Squat: Train ATG, wide and parrallel, and partial supramaximal. Blow your legs up with squats. If you do all 3 in 1 workout...i would suggest do it the week before deload.

    Also work lunges and ham curls. Work your core as well.


    As far as power clean...i couldnt tell you...Im new to doing powercleans so I still am feeling out how I need progress in them.

    Personally im starting a log that I will be applying all this and see if I can attain similar goes to what u have stated in a similar time frame.

    Best of luck.

    I would recommend a 5x5 program variation, texas method, or 5/3/1. These will all focus on the main lifts and have a built in progression scheme. At your age and experience level I don't know that you need to do a ton of variations of the main lifts or try to work on "weak points". Work primarily the main lifts with a well designed progression scheme and you should get stronger.
