Train each body part less often

15.9 Following on the heels of training volume is training frequency. At the end of a cycle you may need less of both (depending on what you were doing earlier on). Arrange exercises so that overlapping ones—e.g., bench press and overhead press, squat and bent-legged deadlift—are done the same day, so you have sufficient rest days in between "hits." If in doubt, take an extra day or two of rest. Experiment with less frequent hard training for the biggest exercises. For example, squat and deadlift intensively only once every ten days. See if that helps you to keep adding weight each session.
