    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...

    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%?
