@kleinhound, I finally got to the Krypteia program and it’s better than the Bodybuild the Upper/Athlete the Lower template.
I like the supersets in Krypteia. The main difference would be the sets on the main lift. The BB/Athlete program uses 5x10 FSL on bench and OHP, 10x 5 FSL on Deadlift and 3x5 FSL on squat compared to the regular 5x5 used across the board in Krypteia.
It uses 5s PRO + 4x8 FSL on bench and OHP during the anchor. Squat and deads use 5/3/1 PR sets with no supplemental work during the anchor.
Krypteia uses 5/3/1 PR sets + 5x5 FSL during part three which would be the anchor phase (I think).
Krypteia states very clearly to run as is but I really like the varying volumes of the BB/Athlete program…
@littlesleeper, you’re running Krypteia. What do you think? I think using the supersets on the BB/Athlete program would make it more difficult and improve conditioning more. I see it as a good thing.
Of course this is all irrelevant to me right now since I’m not doing much with a barbell.
Lastly, Sleeper, I think I’d switch to Incline press when Krypteia drops OHP. Incline is the middle of the road for bench and OHP. I can tell Jim was a power lifter by dropping OHP after part one.
