SO how often should add more weight to my lifts while on rippetoes, i heard i should add 2.5% every week, i should add more weight everytime i workout etc.
Also some of my lifts are weak (bench 60lb, military press 50lb) how do u suggest i should increase weight on these lifts cause they are relativaly low and i could at a minimum add 5(2x2.5).

Adding 5lb would be sufficient and wouldn't be too much. Infact it might be too low depending on how fast you progress. The 2.5% is a usually after you've at least got a >200 bench. If right now you're at 60x5 and are bulking even 70x5 the next week would be quite realistic. Infact, in the first few weeks your %increase might be ridiculously high as your CNS adapts. One of my workout partners went from 105-145 bench in 3 weeks on SS. That's a 38% increase.
