Val, you are one of a kind. Don't change a thing!
My .02, take some time between singles, 3-5 min or so. If they are really hard core lifts like the ones that hurt in your teeth type singles, maybe 7 min.
Just saying max efforts should take some time to recover from. If not, they weren't max efforts.
We're alike, you and I. Just push it when you can and don't back off unless you absolutely have to. It is a journey.
I am Anton Zdravko Martin!

Goals beyond my wildest dreams, 600 Kg raw total, 200/160/240
Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.
Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
