It’s a good routine it has helped with my form and increased my squat dead and strict press I include that to ,it just takes a lot out of me after that I go to work the graveyard shift eating is the hardest damn thing I’m a mechanic I’m always on the move hard to eat right .Thanks for all the advice plus I fuckin love deading 3 times a week !! KEEP SMASHING BROTHERS !!!
So it IS Korte. You can probably do that a zillion times and never have to change it.
I am too old to do squat and DL on the same day, especially because I rip through workouts and Korte took me like 45 minutes with all 3 lifts.
So my change, which left me fresh(ish) as a daisy was to make it a 4 workout instead of a 3 workout cycle, so each cycle would lap part of 2 weeks.
So instead of
Day1: Squat, Bench, Deads
Day2: Squat, Bench, Deads
Day3: Squat, Bench, Deads
Day 1, week 1 Monday: Squat, Bench
Day 2, week 1 Wednesday: Bench, Deads
Day 3, week 1 Friday: Squat, Bench
Day 4, week 2, Monday: Bench, Deads
Start new percentages on Wednesday…rinse, repeat.
So I ended up benching at each percentage 4 times instead of 3. I could see you swapping 2 bench days for 2 military days in a 4 day cycle like mine.
Anyway, it didn’t wear me out (at the time age 54), it took like 30 minutes per workout, and I put on 5 pounds of BW which I never lost, all in one cycle.
Keep it simple like you have been.
There is so much program noise out there now, it is nearly impossible to constrain yourself, to NOT be distracted. I bet if you stick with Korte, use it as a base, make small changes here and there to meet your needs should your needs change, keep good records, don’t be afraid to experiment but do be patient, you will learn who you are as a lifter and become a monster because YOU WILL BECOME YOUR OWN HIGHLY EXPERIENCED TRAINER.
Do not be a sheep, be a wolf.
