That makes loads of sense. I'll look into that as soon as I finish two month's worth of accrued school work. I thought taking off from work Mon-Thur and not going to class on two days would get me caught up, but I've only gotten through 1/3 of the shit I need to do and it's already Wednesday.

Deadlifts - 5X8 245, 245, 265, 265, 285

I didn't realize how much weight I did until about 30 seconds ago...couldn't remember how many lbs = 1 kilo. I thought I was doing 20 lbs less. I didn't want to do any more after the fifth set because I was becoming more and more conscious of the lower back. I was going to do a few squats, but I was in a hurry...haven't been on a date in more than a year. And I had two dates with two different girls set up for tonight...and got blown off by both of them as soon as I got home and called. Oh well, there's always next weekend!

Bench press - 1X12 165, 1X8 185, 1X5 195
Flat DB press - 1X5 80, 2X8 70
Incline BB press - 3X8 135, 2X5 155
Straight bar curls - 1X8 60, 2X8 75
Lat pulls - 4X8 120, 135, 135, 150
Hang cleans - 3X5 75, 105, 125
Power cleans - 1X5 175

Yeah...that's a lot of volume. I felt like last week was a waste. And the week before, also. I just haven't been feeling tired at all when I leave the gym. Obviously that shouldn't entirely dictate the quality of my workout. But I have sooo much left in the tank when I head home. I think part of it is the high volume. I didn't exactly go heavy today. The only days I'm really tired are the days that I primarily just squat or deadlift. Maybe I will start back on the DFT 5X5. I miss it anyway.

You have shoulder issues and you want to do DFT 5x5? That is a shoulder buster. It probably contributed to your current state.

I haven't injured my shoulder in 6 months or more. Injuring it used to be a once a month, or once every other month thing. It's a good possibility that it will be aggravated somewhat if I do the 5X5. That was part of the reason that I stopped doing it before. I'm just trying to think of something that will possibly help to increase my "intensity" (both meanings).

You're making it sound like you injure it and then it's all better. It never got better. You said yourself you had a bad shoulder. It's just going to get worse. Don't confuse lack of pain with better. Overuse will be the end of your lifting days in the long run if you don't get a hold of the reality of the shoulder.

All said it probably took me two years of work to get my shoulders somewhat healthy after years of pounding. And they will never be all good again, really, just better.

What you just did is a bad shoulder waiting to happen. All that bench pressing in one workout and then some hang cleans and power cleans?

Volume, volume, volume over quality, quality, quality, is where these problems come from.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.
