I know a couple of guys who have done this all the way through and gotten good results, both had good technique in the Squat and were already well inured to high frequency/high volume training. I think that's very important to remember with this kind of routine, if you squat ugly then I'd think twice about it. You know if your Squats are the sort of lean forward, good morning, vein bursting type of squats then it's gonna be tough work.

1) Pressing/Benching sure.

2) Back work might be possible, depends on how well you cope with high volume stuff. Hazz did fine on it.
