Default Programming Question For Experienced Competitive PLers

So, on one end, you have beginners who can make linear progress, add weight every week and set new PRs almost every week...

On the other end, you have guys like Wendler, Lilly, et al. who report that after years of training they are burnt out and fed up with standard programming because it beat the crap out of them, injured them, etc., and performance stopped or regressed. These guys usually end up finding/recommending an ME/DE/RE based method with sub-1RM percentages and infrequent, well-spaced PR attempts. These PR attempts are often 10+ weeks apart.

So, here's the question:

Has anyone found that once weekly PRs stop happening, you can go to programming where PRs are expected every other week, then every third week, then every fourth, and so on? Or, do you tend to hit a hard wall and it's goes from weekly directly to 10+ weeks with no gradual transition period?
