hi CT, juts have a few questions about the wave ladder form of training
- i think i saw you mentioned it was ok to do this method with more than one lift a session but i was wondering if thats with or without the density work. or maybe one lift you include density but not on the other
2)if i do two lifts a session, do you recommend doing two upper body pressing movements on the same day or splitting them up?
3)assistance work - do we do this after the main lifts or do you prefer a whole other day for it? (im thinking mostly for back and biceps)[/quote]
I don’t remember saying that since my method utilize ONE main lift per session. I said that you can use it for more than one lift during the week.
I’m not someone who recommends assistance work, but if you do it you do it at the end of a session.
My sessions are like this:
Loaded jumps or jumps
Main lift for strength (this is where the wave ladder can be used)
Main lift for density (e.g. 80% of 1RM for as many total reps as possible in 5, 8 or 10 minutes)
I have other methods, but they all involve focusing on one main lift per workout and using minimal, if any assistance work.[/quote]
Would you recommend extra pulling/rowing work for a lifter with sporadic shoulder problems? Since I’ve switched to doing twice as much pull work as push, usually anyway, most of my shoulder problems have disappeared.
