    I've summarized my understanding of changes you make as you go along the NLP to each of the lifts. Do I have this right?

    Deadlifts
    1. Can't get 5 reps -> begin alternating with power cleans (workout A deadlift, workout B clean)
    2. Can't get 5 reps for 2 consecutive workouts -> back-off 90% (do this twice)
    3. Can't get 5 reps for 2 consecutive workouts -> begin alternating with back extensions (workout A deadlift / clean, workout B back extensions)
    4. Can't get 5 reps for 2 consecutive workouts -> move to sets of 3


    Squats
    1. Can't get 3 sets of 5 for 2 consecutive workouts -> back-off 90% (do this twice)
    2. Can't get 3 sets of 5 for 2 consecutive workouts -> add Wednesday light day
    3. Can't get 3 sets of 5 for 2 consecutive workouts -> begin micro loading
    4. Can't get 3 sets of 5 for 2 consecutive workouts -> move to sets of 3


    Bench and Overhead presses
    1. Can't get 3 sets of 5 for 2 consecutive workouts -> begin micro-loading
    2. Can't get 3 sets of 5 for 2 consecutive workouts -> back-off 90% (do this twice)
    3. Can't get 3 sets of 5 for 2 consecutive workouts -> move to sets of 3


    Chins
    1. When you reach 3 sets of 10, alternate with weighted sets of 5 (Workout B bodyweight chins to failure, Workout B2 3 sets of 5 weighted chins)
