    Hi Rip,
    If you can make your own fragmental plates of whatever weight, which would be the lightest weight, beyond which there would be no point? Consider the weakest person you would ever train.

    Depends on who you're training. Old women need 0.5lb jumps, you need 2lb jumps.

    I feel like an old woman and certainly lift like one, so I'm covered, thanks.

    One detail to keep on mind: Make sure you're lifting with the same plates and bar (and collars, or at least collar type) each time, to make this work. Variances on equipment can easily exceed small jumps, so lifting at home or at least being able to mark and reuse a gym's equipment will be necessary.
