Linear progression
 
How long can people usually maintian linear progression? in other words what lifts should will a person typically have before they no longer can maintain linear progression?

i know its different for everybody, but for myself.

im 5' 8", 160-165 lbs, AGE: 15. What lifts should i aim for? (obviously ill ride it out as long as possible)

Well, if you start using percentages, and do 8-16 week+ linear progressions, you can probably add weight for quite a long time.

But, Kman...you're going up the ranks quickly. If I were you I would AVOID LP and just keep it simple and focus on moar. I really think you have quite a bit of potential as a powerlifter. Might as well climb the ladder as fast as possible while your body feels good.

ok, i think i have no fucking clue what liner progression is.

i thought it was just adding 5 lbs to the bar every workout.....

thats what i meant.


I plan to ride this out for as long as possible.

I was just wondering how high people normally go on adding 5 lbs a week.


Also- i sure as hell hope i have a future in PL. not to be a world record setter or anything, but just a strong as "motha fucka" and compete and do decent.

Squat- 255x5 (im guessing 290-300 max) *255 felt easyish last time?
Bench-200 probably 205 now because my 5 rep has gone up since then.
Deadlift- 355x1 or 315x5

Estimated Total- 845-860


the thing is though, the way ive been making progress, if things go half i as good as they have been i should get a 900 toal within a month or two and then 1000 in a few months!

I just did the math for 900 and it should come VERY soon. i just added new assistance work, and it seems like a afterburner for my big 3's progression.

yeah dude if you compete in the raw division for your age and weight class you should win easy, and possibly set a state record
