My volume stayed similar throughout each phase but I'm pretty sure it's because doing sets of 7,8 and 9 of cleans and presses kick you in the butt!! This is by design! When I did that 10x10 romp in March it took me like 59 minutes because I needed like 5 minutes between set!!You're not missing anything. It's a hard to do a lot of long sets. The first 5-6 reps, the bells fly but as you progress in the number of sets, those last two reps get harder and hard.
I have two workouts left in 1.1. I cut the workout time down to 20. And have been in the 40-48 range for reps. I'm not chasing any sets and just want to get to 40. On my 5th set of 8, the other day, I failed on the last rep.
1.1 and 1.2 are really hard. My only suggestion is don't do any other workout besides walking. Nothing else.
@BrianCF is spot on...limit other activities on off days.
