Because in the grand scheme of things, cutting LP short is a travesty!!! Look, everyone realizes that you want to milk the gains from LP. And each individual has to make that determination themselves and take steps to move to the next level. Once you start to stall in a particular exercise, periodization is used to push past and further adapt.

People like to measure themselves against others... "how strong am I in relationship to others"? I said nothing about determining training protocol based on that chart.
You think that someone would look at this chart and say, "Holyshit, my press is exactly 135 pounds, I need to switch to the texas method!!!" even when they are adding weight to the bar every workout? Or is it more likely that a person stalls, stalls and stalls and the realizes they need to do something different regardless of the chart?
