I haven't read all of his books so I'm not familiar with those programs/variations he suggested. The guy knows his stuff and maybe more importantly in your case, he knows how to program around other sports.

I was just considering joining the forums there, especially with this and some of my other favorite sites fading away. But in the last email update I got from his site he said new memberships are closed right now.

I saw that, a major bummer. If you can join I would highly recommend it. I think the Krypteia program is in his upcoming book. It's deceivingly basic. I would say it's along the lines of JP's Gladiator stuff, but simpler, hopefully more effective. Mostly involving supersetting leg work on Bench/Press day with all your bench sets, and upper body work with your Squat and Dead days.

I've recently joined the Wendler forum too and will be trying some kind of 5/3/1 variation in the next few months... maybe krypteia, the reviews of that one are really good and I like the look of it (just not sure if I'm too old to handle it!). If not, the boring but big template appeals to me.

It's a good forum with a bunch of knowledgeable guys. I don't really post on there but there is plenty of info about all things 5/3/1.

Just thought I'd pop in and kind of share my experience on 5/3/1 and Krypteia. I did 6 weeks on Krypteia and I think I'm going to be moving back to a modified (to my own needs) GSLP. Krypteia, to me, is very similar to the LCI programming, or maybe Gladiator. I wasn't floored after the workouts, but they were definitely hard, and it was hard to muster the energy for another workout later in the day (doing my hard "training style" rides on lifting days). That being said it's ridiculously simple, and does take all the guess work out.

I think I personally don't gel as well with 5/3/1 because I don't like the constantly changing top sets. For someone who is, at best, a novice like myself (in terms of the weight I lift), every top set seems heavy to me. I think in the long term, and with more experience 5/3/1 would be great, but I prefer the GSLP/general LP style, at least for right now. This also allows me to sort of roll with what's happening with my riding and shift things as I see fit. That said, currently recovering from a hand injury and can barely do anything besides front squats and light band/pulley work.
