I'm not really looking to overanalyze shit here... but I'm taking a week off after working out pretty hard for a consistent 5 weeks... my low back needs rest from maxing out weekly on deads and squats.... And plus I'm going to have an incredibly busy week with homework and shit. Just keep the protein high and carbs low? is there still muscle building during this time? If not does it matter if I eat 140g protein vs 220g daily? edit: and deloading just means taking a break for some extended recovery, right? My bad if I used the wrong term.
