    I hit 315 for the first time yesterday and I did it doing this. Bar warmup x 20. 135x 8. 185 x 4 225x 2 255x2 285 x 1 then 315. Is this good or could I have done it more optimally? 315 went up rather easy too, im gonna go for it again today and try to get a double

    Looks pretty good to me. I might have opted for a single rather than a double for 255 but other than that, well done.

    I agree with @Eman. The setup doesn't seem bad, but I probably would have just done a single of 255.
