comment How does a layperson measure the effectiveness of a strength building program?
I think what you're looking for is this (though, be aware that it was written under the constraints of that question, which were "minimal equipment")

comment When is 5x5 deadlifts too much volume?
250 is advanced? You mean kilograms, right? Also, while I stay relatively low-volume with deadlifts (e.g. 1x5), the idea that they're impossible to do more than once or twice a week is overblown. That's true if we're talking 200+kg, but not so much for 225lbs. Deadlifting frequently has worked well for me and lots of people who are deadlifting <2xBW.

And where do you work out? Are you sure it's always the same bar?

Oh, and how about form in the bench press? Did you switch your stance, set-up, or the standards you hold yourself to? I lost forty pounds on my bench once when I stopped cheating with a back arch and bouncing reps.

Whoa, I just saw the 3 mile run for warm-up. Has that changed at all in pace, environment, or feeling? Have you tried a shorter run before a 5RM attempt on bench?

What happens when these lifts drop? Do you fail the last rep, do you hurt yourself, do you not have the energy to do the set at all, do you chicken out? How is your pre-workout ritual, and how have your energy levels been generally and during each workout?

What were your push-ups like six months ago? Were they 3x17 then too?

A comprehensive list is a bit broad. Maybe narrow this down by specifying your situation? What lifts, what sets and reps and weights, what days of the week, with what diet, and a description of your sleep and stresses.

@cheaterpushups That's a separate question, and a fairly broad one.

comment Do explosive movements necessarily lead to injury over time?
@cheaterpushups Yes, the question's initial assumption being wrong is my point. As to slow & deliberate versus fast, there's a lot of additional nuance but yes, fast is generally more productive.

comment When is 5x5 deadlifts too much volume?
@AlexL I think the paragraph containing the sentence you reference stands as a coherent thought on that matter. Doubles aren't the relevant variable, mass on the bar is. Singles and doubles and 1x5 and other set/rep schemes are merely tools to manipulate the relevant variable. Personally I think that since he's taken 5x5 to 325 he should switch to 1x5 and see how far he can go. In my own training, singles & doubles work but require a different kind of recovery and attitude towards training sets.
