    Default Micro plate deadlift and Squat

    I have read on this form that you may not want to micro plate these two lifts and stick to 5 lb jumps. Less than 5 lb jumps do not produce adaptation. Thoughts?

    Depends entirely on your age, sex, and bodyweight.

    I don't think squatting 257 x 5 x 3 would be a productive use of your time. You should be able to make 5-pound jumps up into the mid-high 300s.

    Sounds good. I guess it's time to put on the belt. Wasn't sure I could make it to 350 on the NLP.

    Maybe you won't. But you haven't tried yet, so you don't know.

    Just finished my workout and completed a 5 lb jump. So this time I did it.

    I also re-read the The First Three Questions and I believe I am not eating enough.
