I contacted Jim directly, and his advice was to mix things up as much as possible. In other words, it is less likely that optimal results will be achieved by repeating the same program. Jim recommended his own web site. In his words "I have hundreds of workouts and dozens of programs on my site. Any and all of them are sound options." Unfortunately, it is ...

Some people can train the same muscle group three times a day, every day, for months on end and see significant hypertrophy.

Overtraining is not dependent on a program, but rather on the relationship between the trainee, their program, their recovery ability, and outside stressors.

Neither are really great for your shoulders. In fact, some of the most wrecked shoulders I've seen are from people who bench press all day and neglect their back and deltoids (the front, top, and rear of which make up your shoulder muscles). I would very much recommend using the standing overhead press. For bodyweight, consider dive bombers.
