I don't feel like I'm going to puke during or after my work out and I know I lift the heaviest that I can because I did/am doing Starting Strength for 4 and a half months but then I stalled a month or so ago so I haven't tried to up my lifts since then and for the volume I just follow Starting Strength. I'm not really sure if I'm pushing myself all the way. Back when I started out I would get DOMs but now I don't.
If you could take a look at my other post to see what my lifts are and give a comment on weather or not you think it is light or vigorous that would be appreciated as I am still unsure even after your post that I quoted.
