  • "bulgarian" wave loading

    Any one used this method; work up to a daily max then back off about 40 lbs for two sets of three then add 15lbs back for 3sets of 2?

    I work a pretty physically demanding job as well as train MMA", so some times under the weights arent as glorious as others but this seems to be a good way for me to get in quality work without feeling like a I have to hit new pr every time I train. Just wondering if anyone else has used anything similiar and how it worked for you?

    Ill post up a more general template of what im doing if there is any interest....

    A member here gnuckols actually had a log going and published an article on T-nation about the Bulgarian method. Not sure if his follows exactly what you are saying but it was damn close and very interesting.

        Hey dmh. I don't do bulgarian wave loading. However I have been squatting to a training max 5-8x per week for the past year. It was inspired by this. I work to a tMax, subtract ~50 pounds then do back off sets. Started my tMax at 385 (which was a little conservative) it's now at 475 (no belt or wraps). I strongly recommend it if you have the time. It usually takes me around 30 minutes just to finish up my squatting and move on to the next exercise.

        The John Broz interview here: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...1212081&page=1 is really good. Broz does a ton of backoff sets, too much for my liking as I don't like to spend hours in the gym. I wrote how I like to do it here: http://wordpress.kylegrieve.com/wp/2...re-frequently/

        Hope that helps.
