what is it?
why do you do it?
i dont really think most people here need to be worrying about proper deloading from what i've read unless you're bdr or maine
i'd assume your best bet would be to just change the rep scheme to something like 3x5 6x3 or something of the sort instead of the usual 3x3
i'm also speaking out of my ass, so let someone who knows what they're talking about comment
i've heard from a lot of people that this routine is really taxing on your CNS if performed correctly. my lifts have been pretty stagnant for the last two weeks or so. i've been on it for 6 weeks and was wondering if it's time for a week off or if i need to deload, whatever that means...
Thread hijack atempt. Im making great gains on this routine, but my squat is kinda stuck, not improving liek everyhtign else is. Any tips on how to get the squat up?
Pull up a chair and read:
intermediate lifters should deload by cutting the volume while keeping intensity up...advanced lifters need to take a break from heavy weights
There are a few ways that I've read. Easiest one is to just cut out the friday workout and drop to 3x3 for the remaining two days
so basically a 3x3 while trying to keep the weight over 85%?
Here's some comments by Glenn Pendlay on how they keep their athletes' squats going up
Great article, I was looking for that a few days ago.
when i do my 3x3, should i do 2x5 and 1x3RM or just straight up 3x3?
is this an okay deloading routine??
