    35lbs. or more is possible no question. But that's going to depend on a lot of factors...
    May the Lord Jesus Christ bless those who bless me as I gladly accept their blessings, and curse those who curse me all the while protecting me for any evils. In Christ name, amen...

    I've seen ~50 in a week. No, not week after week - obviously.

    I look at percentage increases as more important that gross weight increases. For instance, if I increase by barbell curl by 20 lbs. that's much more significant than increasing my deadlift by 30 lbs. because I'm lifting so much less weight to start with with my barbell curl. I guess that doesn't really answer the question but I figured I'd throw that out there...

    I went up over 100 lbs in 3 months

    I added over 50 to my deadlift in a month before. It's not uncommon for me to add 30 or more consistently with that though.

    That's the beauty of low volume: you can usually add just a little bit of weight and pump out just two more reps. That way you're always increasing and getting stronger and adding even 5 lbs a week adds up quickly when you set your goals about six weeks apart. Gotta love it.

    110+lbs on my deadlift because I never really pushed myself before. I always used to do 8 reps and above, now I mostly do 2-4. Yes, that was inside a month, but it was mostly a mental barrier rather than a physical one.
