    I purely do pullups. The bar at my gym is fat so chins feel really awkward.

    5x5 and SS are essentially the same program, no? SS is just 3x5 and has cleans in it.

    Don't think 5 sets is really necessary for a beginner though. Sort of overkill.

    Only been doing it on rep max days. Will drop the belt at post 5s and do the continuation of 5RM without it. That way, I'll know how strong I am without a belt and can adjust new numbers...

    Yes. You start at 70-75% of your 15RM, so the weight should be really light the first day (though deconditioning might make subsequent weight feel heavier than you think it will).

    Due to the intervals required, I'd assume that HST would put some of your starting weights very low (especially in the 15s). You could do it but I don't think it'd be optimal.

    Nah, I was gonna have deads affected by squats - not vise versa.

    So the plan is tomorrow to do 2x15 of squat and 1-2x15 of deadlift, both at about 75% of their respective 15RMs.

    I don't know my 12 and 8 rep maxes so I think I'm forced to stick with 15, 10, and 5 unless I estimate.

    That helps, but I'm still, at the least, 30 reps short throughout the 10s and 15s on lower body unless I squat and sumo deadlift 3 times per week.
