yes, but according to what you can manage at present. if you're only lifting 80% + 1x/week now, don't jump into 80% + 5x/week suddenly. take some time to build up to it or you'll eiither burn yourself out, kill your joints, or an enjoyable combo of both. and with that, don''t be afraid to keep the volume very low.
