I feel strongly that volume accumulation and frequency of practice are better strategies than relative intensity-based strategies for older lifters. Or even lifters with a lot of miles on them.

Linear progression should be utilized in the beginning, and then stopped before it becomes too much effort for too little gain, i.e. if you are adding 2.5# (or less) to your squat on a weekly basis via some linear progression program, you are ready to change.
