I have been in love with high volume for almost a year, especially for shoulders, chest and triceps.

@Coldsnap
Why are doing like 3 overhead press variations though?

I think you're misunderstanding what conceptionist means by high frequency here.

Concept means high frequency of the main lifts. Instead of having a dedicated squat day.

I meant high frequency as in training the lifts 3+ times per week and not splitting them into different sessions, e.g. squatting and benching (and pssibly also deadlifting) in the same workout multiple times per week for instance.

Yeah, maybe it didn't come across very well.

I'm doing a 2-split since close to two months because Candito gave me joint problems quite once in a while for multiple days when doing the RP attempts and at the same time giving me not enough days at the gym for entertainment purposes (when I only go 3 times a week I'm bored as fuck on the others). So I kinda sticked with some basics of it but do it more BB style, getting in 6 training days a week.

Upper:
Dumbbell incline bench
Barbell bend over row
Military press
Weighted pull ups
Weighted dips
Weighted chin ups
Face pulls
Cable push down
Dumbbell curls
Pike & roll out on swiss ball

Lower:
Zercher Squat
(Sumo/Conventional) Deadlift (I only go heavy on squats OR deadlifts on the same day)
Calf raise
Shrugs
Hammer curls
Dips for reps
Pike & roll out on swiss ball
Hanging leg raise

I vary it between high weight / low reps (5) and medium weight / high reps (8-12) to keep some variance in and not do the same every day.

One of my buddies (total bro scientist) claims I'm overtraining but I don't think I can move enough weight to overtrain yet, I feel great and have top motivation. I do my pause day when I feel like I'm running out of energy which is typically around Monday or Tuesday. Results are seemingly quite ok, can't wait that it's 01.06. and we're done with cutting.

maybe 1 person ITT actually knows what is meant by overtraining

Theres a massive fire at my uni, whole street it's on has been evacuated. Maybe this will get the occupy protesters out.
