    The odds will be against you, but you are true heroes.

    Back in the gym (LA Fitness). I'm much weaker now at age 20 than I was at age 15-16 (for those of you who even know me from years ago)... but with sword and shield amidst the din, I will courageously win back my strength.

    Deep Leg Press
    -25ps x 10
    -1pps x 7
    -1pps+25 x 5
    -2pps x 3
    ~~~work sets
    ~2p+25ps x 10 (+5R)
    ~2p+25ps x 7
    ~2p+25ps x 5
    ~2p+25ps x 4


    Standing DB Overhead Press
    ~~~work sets
    ~15's x 20
    ~15's x 12
    ~15's x 10 + (dropset) 10's x 10

    Apparently some douche lost or more likely stole the 20 lb. Dumbbells, and I knew 25's would be a bit much for me to start with, so I just rep'd the crap out of the 15's. I'll beef it out with 25's next week.

    ~~~work sets
    ~BW x 5
    ~BW (assisted) x 10
    ~BW (assisted) x 4 + very slow negative (assisted)

    Question/Concern: This workout beat the crap out of me overall. It's not much volume really (I do full-body workouts M-W-F), but I go at it full intensity, always to failure (maybe that's a bad thing?). Anyway... let me know if you guys think I should go for more volume, perhaps spend a bit less time resting between sets (I spend about 45 minutes to an hour at the gym), and not lift as hard? With how hard I try I just don't think I could even do much more; or maybe I could, but they would have to be really weak sets! What's more important: intensity or volume?
