Hey CT, I had a question about your current methodology that's really been on my mind lately. I posted it in another thread but didn't you'd see it there so I've started a new thread so I could get your input.
What are your thoughts about a sort of combination of the layering approach and the waveloading featured so prominently in the HP Mass program?
I was thinking about switching things up a little by performing a 5-day split as follows:
clean and press
I hate taking days off and I really liked the HP Mass program for that reason; I always had enough in the tank to just keep lifting on the main movements and really only took days off when other things unrelated to working out would come up.
So my idea was to perform one movement per day by ramping up a 1RM, then dropping down to 85-90% and waveloading back up to the 1RM, then drop down to 70% of the 1RM and ramping up to a 2RM, drop down to 85-90%, waveloading back to the 2RM, dropping down to 70% of the 2RM, ramping back up to a 3RM, dropping down to 85-90% of the 3RM and waveloading back up to the 3RM.
So it's just a ramp to 1RM, a wave, ramp to a 2RM, a wave, ramp to a 3RM, a wave and then do maybe 4-6 sets of 8-15 reps on some sort of assistance exercise. I thought I would add a wave to the 3-rep wave the second week, a wave to the 2-rep wave the third week, a wave to the 1-rep wave the fourth week, and then a third wave to the 1-rep waves the fifth week. After that I could do the start over with variations of the same lifts.
What are your thoughts on this?
