Ive been thinking about rate of progression. Progressing too fast is not a good idea. The body does not like to make gains fast (beyond the beginner level.) So how much weight do you guys find you can add to the main lifts (bench,press,deadlift and squat) in a year?
5-10 lbs per week is 260-520 lbs to a lift in a year!!! This is obviously ridiculous and Impossible for anyone.
5-10 lbs per month is 60- 120 lbs on a lift in a year. I feel that is a lot for a person who has been lifting for years.
Im thinking more along the lines of 30 lbs on bench/press and 60lbs on squat/deads in a year at most.
