    Don't think so.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    If you hit all 5 reps in 5 sets with the current weight, you bump it up next workout.

    It's 5 sets, 5 reps, same weight per workout.

    I recommend the iPhone app, if you have an iPhone or iPod touch. It tells you what the weights are, automatically increasing if you meet the standard, and holding/deloading if you don't.

    Increase weight during your warmup until you reach your working weight.
    Rock the 5x5
    If you mis a rep repeat the same weight the next day
    If you miss 2 or 3 days in a row, deload 20% (I think) and work back up.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
    PS
    Don't forget to play!

    Agree with Dirlot. Here's a great resource for 5x5 and heavy lifting in general: Dinosaur Training
