its frusterating that my friend (6'3, 240) started at the same weight as me on everything and he hasn't failed yet on squats, he just did 5x5 at 260 yesterday, where i am only at 195 after deloading twice so far.
he is also at 5x5 at 145 on ohp and i have to deload to 110 tomorrow because i failed 3x at 120
he isn't paying any attention to how he eats though, and eats probably 4k calories a day. hes gained 5-10 lb since we started where i havent gained any weight due to calorie counting
you answered your own question
plus you have a training history
you may want to consider moving on to a late novice or intermediate periodization where you are adding weight weekly rather than session to session
eventually you will need to do more volume to continue seeing gains (weight x reps x sets)
