Michal Krizo shares details on his Olympia prep.
Slovakian IFBB Pro bodybuilder Michal Krizo has stepped his training prep up for the 2023 Olympia. The talented bodybuilder is ramping up his training 9 weeks out from the biggest show of the year. While his first Olympia event may not have gone exactly as planned, Krizo is leaving no stone unturned for his second outing.
One of the most impressive bodybuilders in the IFBB, Michal Krizo is a competitor to keep an eye on. With some incredible musculature and proportions, Krizo has the potential to be a top five competitor. For some he even has the potential to one day win the Olympia. He already has the seal of approval from Jay Cutler, a massive compliment indeed from the four-time Olympia champion.
With 9 weeks until the competition, Michal Krizo is pushing himself to the next level in order to give his best performance at the 2023 Olympia. During a recent Q and A, Krizo discussed his training.
“9.5 weeks out. I am tired already. And I will be even more. I started prepping about 2-3 weeks ago. We’ll see if this prep is any different throughout the hard diet itself. Whether anything would change or not. Every prep is difficult and specific.”

Changing Things Up
Looking to ensure an improved placing at the 2023 Olympia, Michal Krizo has tailored his training for the big show. Training six days a week instead of his usual three or four, Krizo is working tirelessly in the gym.
“Definitely. I train six times a week now. I train 3-4 times in the off-season. Breaks are shorter now. It’s more intense now. In the off-season, it’s more just around the gym and doing a set after five minutes of walking around. And I train for more strength but not so much now.
“Yes, I am doing more reps now. Same, I do 4 sets [per body part]. Depends, if it’s a smaller or bigger muscle group. For example, biceps, it’s only two exercises for biceps, three exercises for triceps. For chest, I have 3-4 exercise, I think. Four exercises four back, but I train back twice a week. Three exercises for chest, but I train it twice a week. Three exercises for shoulders, but I train them twice a week. I do four exercises for quads, three exercises for hamstrings, two exercises for calves.”
