Regarding overreaching, that's a personal thing. You know when you reach it. Fazc and myself played with it for about 18 months. It's not about sets/reps or weight. You can overreach with anything. It's more about fatigue management and not listening to it.

Fazc and I would ram for 2 weeks, learning to overreach during this time period, then pull back.

Overreaching can be done in a near endless number of ways. For example, go do an 8x8 squat with 225 each day until you feel like death, then deload until you feel human.

If someone is going to increase volume, I recommend doing it slowly so impact can be analyzed.
