    That's normal -- it's called fatigue.

    It generally means cutting volume for a week or so. Allows your body to recover etc -- particularly important for connective tissues, which adapt slower to increasing stress compared to muscle.

    I generally continue when I'm ready; but I estimate it's 3-5 minutes for heavy, compound sets and less than 1-1.5 minutes for isolation work.

    It depends upon what you're used to. I prefer working out in the late afternoon, after work.

    First, you don't need a spotter for squats.

    Second, don't do legs every other day. You need rest to grow.

    Third, wall sits as a warmup for squats doesn't make any sense. Do some lightweight or...

    I did chest on Mondays and back on Tuesdays for years. It got a bit stressful on the joints once I started pushing into the heavier resistance levels, but otherwise was fine.

    Keep in mind that the arms are also utilized intensely with compound movements -- i.e. triceps during chest and biceps during back. With this in mind, if you think it's too much volume and your...

    Try the EZ bar, but more likely you're have to just stay away for awhile and/or substitute in another exercise that doesn't irritate as much.

    You're having trouble clearing the knees on the descent - a very common issue. Don't bend the knees until the bar has passed them.

    I group sets of the same exercise together. This is the conventional and mainstream way of lifting. I'm not interested in circuit training.

    DB row, if any. I'm not a fan of BB row and it's never really worked for me. T-bar rows quite often, though.
