    Always covering a lot of ground in each session T. Consistently impressive.
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    I do tend to leave aside certain movements like deads, lunges and so on - but not too worried about it.
    One thing of note though, I am using more moderate weights these days depending on the focus for any given day. My body seems to be relishing and appreciating the generous output taking place in the gym.

    Impressive volume.
    Move heavy weight, eat, sleep, repeat.
