If it works for you then do it-but I would suggest that a weekly change (it depends how big the change is,or what kind of change) could be too much.

Adaption is not a bad thing-its a good one. Its that what we want.
If the body is always stressed with a different stimulus to what should it adapt to? There is no consistency. How you measure progress then?

I made this experience with the HLM template. What I did was to train for example shoulders light and chest heavy. Next session Shoulders heavy and chest light and so on.
I stalled from the beginning. I only progress if all exercises are done heavy/medium or light on one specific day.
Mixing them up seems to confuse my CNS to which direction my body should adapt to.
