Wave loading is a loading progression where the volume and intensity of a lift changes rapidly from set to set, rising and falling and rising and falling. This is designed to help stimulate strength adaptation more rapidly, increase an athlete’s explosiveness, and grow work capacity.
There are many variations of wave loading and the program below is simply one example. It is a 16 week wave loading program with 4 training days per week. Two bench (an “A” workout one day and a “B” workout later in the week), one squat, and one deadlift.
Definitely an old school meathead workout.
