Hi all. I’m doing a little experiment right now. I want to find out how much volume I can progressively add before going into an over-reached or overtrained state. I’m trying to approach this as productively as possible while still progressing fast volume-wise.

I start out at 1 wave (ramping up and execute reps according to CT’s principles) and add 1 more wave each time I have a workout for the same basic movement pattern for 3 weeks, then I have a recharge week. For example: I have 4 upper body pressing days a week. Since I started at 1 wave, this leaves me at 12 waves the last upper body pressing day.

BUT how many waves should I start with after the recharge period?

I obviously wanna go above 12 waves. But how many more waves should I add per cycle?

Opinions wanted
