Awesome. I'm very interested in submaximal training with an emphasis on volume, especially now that I mostly train at home. That gives me a chance to experiment with both volume and frequency much more than in the past.

I'm currently training with an upper/lower split, training almost every day and simply alternating upper body and lower body. It's a fun way of doing things, because I can emphasize different muscles and lifts on different days. One upper body day will be focussed on bench, but still include shoulder and back work, while another upper body day will be focussed on pullups. It's allowed me to keep my frequency high without burning out or getting bored, but it's really hard on recovery, and I almost always train while already sore.
