i just turned 18 this thanksgiving, so i think volume isn't a problem for me.
i'll progressively up the reps and see how my body takes it. i think i should be fine as long as my form doesn't turn to mush. i'm sure i'll get used to the fatigue. thanks for input.

can deadlifts be done at higher volumes, like 3x12-15 or 4x8-12, to put on some mass? lets say i want a take a break from deadlifting heavy and up the reps, but i've heard that for deadlifting volume should be kept low to avoid injury.....

can the serratus anterior really be bulked up with incline shoulder raises? i just don't see how a small muscle such as that can hypertrophy much. i see prominent serratus anteriors on bodybuilders, but i assume that's cause they have a low bf%.
OK, i'll try to keep my neck and head aligned and look straight. i hold my breath for my last couple of reps, since those are the hardest and i need to maintain as much control as i can. the first couple of reps don't seem to cause any problems: around the middle of the set is when i start feeling t...
while benching and squat, sometimes there's some pressure in my head, like i'm about to burst a blood vessel or something. if i control the movement thoroughly enough i can minimize the pressure, but it's still there. anyone else experience this before? and i had a cold last week, and didn't lift. c...
your workout A seems to be significantly longer than workout B. i'm not sure if this is useful or not... maybe you can take a little break from benching [lighter weight and more volume?], focus more on legs or back for a while, and come back and start benching fresh again. i assume that would stimul...
