I just received my copy of 5/3/1 Forever and it’s a great read. I was thinking about starting Krypteia at the end of the next cycle, but I was wondering if that makes sense, given my goals and current status.
I’m 36, been training for 5 years, but had a long period of time where training had to take a back seat to injuries (outside the weight room) and time obligations. I’m all healed up and have the time to make training a real priority again.
I’ve been training steadily for the last 4 months. I’m just about to finish my 2nd cycle of original 5/3/1 + FSL.
My main objectives are to drop about 20lbs and get in better shape (I’m helping one of my kids prep for a summer soccer tournament).
I’m still at relatively beginner numbers, and was thinking of starting Krypteia. I saw that a few weeks back, you recommended to someone that was also restarting that they run:
2 cycles 5 PROs + FSL
2 cycles 5 pros + BBB
Does that seem like a reasonable path here, too?
