I realized that part of my problem is that I'm doing too much each day and taking too long with my workouts. But I don't want to decrease the volume and intensity of the exercises; I like aiming for 10,000 lbs. upper body and 15,000 lbs. lower body. I decided that I should just do 1 exercise per day, alternating between upper and lower body. This will give me adequate rest and let me go as hard as I want:

Day 1: Squat
Day 2: Press
Day 3: Front Squat
Day 4: Bench
Day 5: Deadlift
Day 6: Incline Bench

There won't be any pressure to get in all 6 each week. That means that, week-to-week, there will be some variety in the exercises that I actually perform but each exercise complements the others.
Good luck. Go get it.
