In your write-up, though, I saw it from a different perspective -- a more Bulgarian perspective, dare I say? As I read your post, the athlete doesn't necessarily have to start at a weight where he can complete all 20 lifts. Rather, he might start at a weight where he aspires to complete all 20 lifts, but might only get through 16 or 17 at the start. Splitting the lifts into separate workouts isn't exactly Bulgarian; nor is the higher volume at lower intensity. That said, by starting the 20 lifts at a higher level, you create a format in which you can climb the 20-rep ladder to your "daily max" while gaining the added conditioning that comes from the first 15 reps. For someone who doesn't have the opportunity to train (read: practice) every day, the added drilling is invaluable. You know, two days of that followed by a third session of lower volumes (and hopefully higher lifts) might be a pretty terrific combination.
