    In this example, maybe if volume was dropped to 11 daily sets for a total of 77 weekly sets, it could work. Then build up from there if tolerated.

    I'd still err on taking at least one day off per week though.
    Good point. I forgot about volume being increased with training 7x/week.

    To add, I don't understand why people need more than 15 sets for 1 body part.

    Then again, if a person experimented and found out 15 sets isn't enough to grow/get stronger, I can't argue with doing ~20 sets.

    Also, I think a person should first experiment with keeping the same volume for every day training. If it doesn't work, then lower the volume.

    I would watch out for signs of overtraining. Your body will tell you when it has had enough. There are a few ways to tell if you are recovering. I’ll open myself up to getting ripped here but I have been told that your resting heart rate when you wake up on the morning should be 20% lower than it is at bed time if your heart rate does not reduce it is an indicator of over training

    The better question is whether it’s worth it or not. I’d imagine it comes down to intensity.

    I could train seven days a weak at high or low volume as long as I regulated the intensity to match my overall fatigue levels.

    I think Mentzer and Dante would argue “why do something I’m 7 days you could do in 4?”
