Apologies if the question is answered elsewhere, a cursory search did not yield what I was looking for.
What are some factors involved in whether you choose a wave progression versus a more block-style progression for a lifter?
week 1. ramp to 5rm/backoff sets
week 2. ramp to 4rm/backoff sets
week 3. ramp to 3rm/no backoffs
week 4. ramp to 5rm/backoff sets
weeks 1-3. ramp to 3rm + backoffs
weeks 4-6. ramp to 2rm + backoffs
I see some of your loading prescriptions lately have been closer to the latter. What are the advantages/disadvantages of each?
