Do what works for you. Of course you don't want to lift heavy all the time. In between heavy workouts should be lighter, not to failure  ones for recovery.

I found concentrating on the mind muscle connection and doing lighter but higher reps worked great on the juice. Not every workout but quite often.

You definitely will respond much better from stimulation so really target areas you want to stimulate. Good luck buddy.

Recently I dropped some of my training poundages down a bit in order to try and maintain certain bodyparts while focusing on other bodyparts, and guess what? I lost size in those bodyparts which I was trying to maintain with the lighter training poundages so therefore I've got to keep the training poundages up in order not to lose size. Yeah it's a real fucking bitch, but I've gotta do it if I don't want to lose size.

I used to train very high intensity, 4-6 reps to failure when I was natural, focusing on a lot of strength and it helped me, I just responded well to the lower rep range.  Now I have changed it a bit, what I do is warm up with 2-3 sets, working my way up to my heavy set.  Then I perform one heavy set of 4-6 reps (only for first exercise of the routine).  So for chest I would start with a power movement like incline bench or decline bench, ect. Then stick to 8-10 rep range for rest of sets, and maybe throw in a 15-20 rep set depending on exercise.

no such thing as overtraining... just under-eating.
