Krypteia and 7th Week Protocol (Deload)

Hey Guys

I am currently doint the Krypteia-program and I will start the second cycle next week.
The only question I have is about the deload week (deload after prep phase and after phase 2) - Are you just going for those singles or do you use the percentages of original 5/3/1? What about the assistance? Still doing those supersets?

Thanks

…?

7th week protocol:

  • TM test
  • go up with singles for TM(=deload)
  • PR Test

So I think I would go for those singles: 70%x5, 80%x3-5, 90%x1, 100% ™ x 1

But I also don’t get what to do in the Krypteia program…

Could not remember the singles part… Tnx

Oh, ya, that’s my bad. I forgot about the singles part too.

it’s no different than any 5/3/1 program…

prep phase (keep same TM for this phase)
Cycle 1 (3 weeks)
Cycle 2 (3 weeks)
deload (TM for 1 rep if you know its good, 5 reps if you need to test it)

phase 2
Cycle 1 (3 weeks)
raise TM 5/10
Cycle 2 (3 weeks)
deload (TM for 1 rep if you know its good, 5 reps if you need to test it)
raise TM 5/10

phase 3
Cycle 1 (3 Weeks)
deload (TM Test or PR)

restart phase 2 or start another program.

Thanks mate, got it. But what assistance are you doing during the deload weeks?

Typically something easy like triceps rope push downs, push ups, band pull aparts and face pulls.

Its done just like every single 5/3/1 program in Forever. That was why it was mentioned in the book.
