Man, I guess everyone is really different. When doing lower weight higher reps I need more time between sets usually.
I did this program and the heavy and medium days were like a break compared to the light days.

I'd personally rather suffer intensely for a short duration than suffer moderately for a long duration.
and humble, too!

Okay, Pavel's not on this board, but I am and I have most of his books memorized. If you want to get both volume and intensity, do ladders. I have clients do 45 deadlifts of their 5RM in half an hour and they can't write by the end of it. Give it a try.

If my clients were all illiterate, I wouldn't brag about it, no matter how many deadlifts they could do.

Remind me to throw some positive rep your way in another forum that allows it. Bastard.
