So I decided to join a gym after all and give it a try on one of these programmes. I'm 188cm (6f 2) and 89kg (196lbs). I train Kbox twice a week and wrestling once a week (sparring from time to time). I read the FAQ and respectable websites and I need some advice. What do you guys think the better program is: StrongLifts 5x5 or Rippetoe's Practical Programming Novice Program? Esp if I still want to keep doing kbox and wrestling. I think I'm fit enough not to start with just a barbell (as 5x5 suggests) so Ripp's could be a way to go. But, would 5x5 give better results as you do more lifts added all together (esp when you take in the consideration warm ups)? Also, Am I right to believe that Ripp's takes less time per session then 5x5? P.S. If I chose Ripp's program, could I swap powercleans/Bent Over Rows with inverted Row?
