FOR LOAD WODS are workouts where the athlete increases their load (weight) after each rep. At first you warm-up with some light reps of whatever it is that’s programmed. It could be deadlifts FOR LOAD, snatches FOR LOAD, front squats FOR LOAD, etc. whatever it is, you start with a light weight and perform some reps to get your body primed for what’s to come, then you start whatever reps scheme is programmed and increase the weight upon each rep.

Each rep will usually have some rest in between. Some examples of FOR LOAD WODS are:
