Good post. I think that sums up what I was going to say. I've been reading bodybuilding magazines for decades and I don't recall much periodization talk. We talk about strength training here and deloading but I really have no clue if bodybuilding and frequency would have the same requirements.

Guess the question for me is if overreaching has value in bodybuilding?

Like BTB said I don't see most of this really mattering much until someone has substantially increased their strength. Using an HLM sounds solid but the focus is still on progression.
