I already posted 1 wave like program, but this that one was more strength builder, while this one is more toward functional hypertrophy and building some muscles, beside strength. Principle is simple, you will have two waves, 6 sets total, reps will go from 3-7. Exact order will be 7-5-3-7-5-3. After first wave your CNS will be on fire and you will be able to lift more weight in your second wave. So for example in the first wave you used 80 kg on first set of 7 reps, next time when you should do 7 reps add 1 kg , or so, that depends on your strength level. Tempo will be noted bellow exercises. Repeat cycle 3 times and add weight every week for all exercises.
