If you want max progress, be sure to ease into it. Completely, kicking your ass completely at first isn't the way to go, especially as you get older. Your recovery time takes longer, and being able to stick with the program becomes more difficult. Chunk by chunk, steady progress.
I've done a lot of Rmax (Scott Sonnon's stuff) workouts, and that is one of the things stressed on there. As I enter my late 30s, I found the importance of this magnified.
