bottom line with this stuff is this: do what works for YOU. you can dig up the most complex and impressive periodization plans, but if your recovery ability is not up to par for whatever reason, you'll still bury yourself. likewise, if you can push harder for longer than the plan calls for, you may be short changing yourself. personally, i've had good success with 2 weeks heavy, high volume and 1 week of about 65-70% loading, much less volume (o-lifting)--if i try to stick with schedules other people seem to thrive on, i just overtrain and lift like a spanker.
