What sort of program are you running, and what is your goal with this workout? If you were trying to work up to something heavy and pull a single you did WAAAAAY too much on the way up. If you are trying to do rep work you should just work up to a working weight and do a few sets for xx reps at that weight.

For example for me Friday I need to work up to 495 which is my working weight, and pull it for 12 singles with 60 seconds rest. So it would look something like this:
135 x 5
225 x 3-5
315 x 1
405 x 1
455 x 1
495 x 1 x 12

You want to save your strength for your working sets.

Looking at your day, if you wanted to get some reps in I would have probably went:
135 x 5
225 x 3
275 x 3
315 x 3(you only got 3 here, so I would personally just stayed there)
315 x 3
315 x 3
315 x 3
315 x 3

If your goal was to hit 350 for a single I would have went something like:
135 x 5
185 x 1
225 x 1
275 x 1
315 x 1
350 x 1

Then you never know. 350 might have went up pretty good and then you can go "ok that felt easy I will go up 10-15lb" or "that felt hard but I have more in me" and go up 5lb or so

All that work before the 350 killed you.
