Would you say that strength increases progressively add to the intensity of workouts & thus contribute to the taxing Wlfdog?
No as strength increases are a sign of adaptation.
I break it down as follows-
Dips fatigue you anterior delts, tris, pecs and to a lesser degree you core. All needed for stabilizing the weight on your shoulders while doing squats.
Pullups fatigue your forearms, biceps, posterior delts, traps, lats, teres major, your rotator cuff muscles and to lesser degree your erector spinae. Also muscles you need for squats and deadlifts
Squats continue the fatigue at a far greater rate of the above plus your core stabilizers and you whole lower body. Then while all of these muscles are fried you call on them to deadlift. Then "to add insult to injury" you ice the cake with upright rows.
From physiological point of view, you are trying to whip a tired horse into pulling a full cart then whip a nearly dead horse into pulling another full cart. Get where I am coming from?
That was point in this post:
Indulge my curiosity a little further if you please?
What do you think of a split like this?
