Did a marathonsession yesterday:

Deadlift 165kgx1 (365lbs)
Front squat 115kgx1 (250lbs) almost had 120kg
Bench press 90kgx1 (200lbs) YES! over bodyweight, but I haven't done bench in a long time so it was pretty shaky form (not weight-wise)
Hang clean 95kgx1 (210lbs) almost had 100kg (I would've had 99kg)
Hang snatch 70kgx1 (155lbs) needed 3 tries for this one

Forgot to do the press, but it's safe to say: the 40-day program works

So, basically, you maxed 5 lifts on the same day???

Yeah, pretty much, but also did some fooling around on machines (was in a "real gym").
And did a chest workout with my workout-partner for the day.

If you really want to max a lift, it will be the only thing you can possible do that session. If you can do 5, and then some other stuff, it wasn't really maxing!

Yeah, that might've been better, but it was fun doing it and it went pretty well.
But I did feel the exhaustion doing cleans and snatches.

That's not completely true. Olympic lifters perform both the Snatch and Clean & Jerk in the same day, and powerlifters perform three (squat/bench/deadlift). Personally, I've found I can often get two or three PRs in one workout if I'm feeling strong that day and make sure to get enough rest between sets.
