I do it every 6 weeks.
people are going to come in here and say they only deload when they feel its time to deload
or if their program tells them to
6 weeks would be way too often for me. I shoot for ~6 months or as soon I start to sputter.
this is the first week Ive done it since december
Everyone's different and it depends on your training intensity/volume vs. nutrition vs. sleep vs. overall recovery capacity vs. stress levels, etc.
I need a de-load every 8 weeks or so personally. But I take loads like it's nobody's business.
its true. ive seen his videos. like a fucking champ.
what's deloading? lifting lighter and less volume for a week?
yeah or just taking a week off
most of the programs i have been doing have planned deloads. or if i twick something i just take a week off.
I find that if I take even a week off, I get weaker in all my exercises. Is this normal?
Personally I come back ready to put the fucking house up which is part of the reason I do it so often. Maybe your not doing enough volume as is.
I do it when I feel beat up from lifting
I dont really. If I feel like ass on any given day I just lift less weight. I don't believe in programmed 'deloads'. What if your body is still fresh and ready to go when the 'deload' week comes up?
if my body is still fresh i just skip the deload.
I deload everyday and workout FOR REAL every 6 weeks.
If you feel like you need it then fo for for it. I usually just eat a lot of food for a few days.
fe fi fo fum
sup with the new av? No new poses to mock? haha
It'd be too often for me. It's almost like I get depressed when I'm not working out.
I hardly ever deload. If I feel like it, I do.
How long since you've taken off? I haven't taken time off besides from being sick for a few days since August.
I take a week off every 6 mos. or so. Not really planned, I'm just usually burnt out around then.
I'm gonna take a week off in about a month or so.
I don't remember when I took a week off last but I deloaded last oct or nov.
Putting in work jmezz!
I haven't taken a full week off in probably like 3 years lololol. I just don't see the need. I don't feel "run down" for more than day here or there.
