when i am getting overly sore i try to reduce my level of eccentric motions. issues of volume and frequency are obviously much more important, but i find that if i am really itching to work some movement, i can practice it more by cutting out the negative and not approaching failure.

I probably won't be doing the Hang Power Cleans/Snatches for over a month, and I probably won't be doing the GRH/RDL for a while either. And the running will be light, because I'm trying to work on my POSE and will need to break in my VFF when they come.

Steven,

So all in all, I think the volume that I've set out is in line with the 1 legs, 1 push, 1 pull, unless that is supposed to not include the static holds.

Dr. G.,

I think I've been having trouble dealing with the fact that I'm an intermediate lifter and no longer progressing as quickly as usual. I wasn't expecting crazy gains, which is why I resorted to the 3x5, 3x3, 5x5 rep scheme, but I think that screwed me over even more because it made me feel as if I could push the weights up even faster because of the deload week.

Plus, from having done WSSB, SS, CF, and Marine Corps training, linear progression to near failure was the norm. I have been a huge advocate of not training to failure, but I guess it just never crossed my mind for myself. I think SS has ruined me...haha. Too many linear gains too fast.

I have Dan John's book, but I haven't gotten a chance to read it. I will check it out for sure.

BTW. I read the EMF Radiation post, and I was horrified and posted it on my blog.

Grissim,

Thanks for the input.

Bingo. Going to failure is not a good training idea unless used infrequently to break plateaus. Real gains require progressive loading with volume and frequency...something not possible in a workout that is always destroying you every time.
