Wave Ladders: When To Start A New Wave


Hello CT / or one who know this,

One short question about Wave Ladders.

Let’s say I finished a fourth wave and I know that the last set of my wave is my maximum, no chance that I will be able to complete a new wave with more weight. Do I still start a new wave ?

(I mean the 1 rep , 2 rep , 3 rep wave ladders outlined in your article from 2013 or 2014)


Do the sets you sure of completing (1 & 2)… not the one you will not complete


Thank you for your answer CT, It was not 100% clear for me from reading the article.
