5/3/1 Deload Week Nutrition

I am on my third month of 5/3/1 and am having great results, this month I started carb cycling for the first time using A Beginners Guide To Carb Cycling. I was wondering if it would be appropriate to treat the deload week of the program as seven consecutive low days? If anyone has any experience with this or any ideas let me know, thanks.

I am doing 5/3/1 with carb cycling as well. My plan is to keep everything the same except skip turn my high day to a medium day. I still go pretty intense with my accessory work on the deload though.

If I was in a deload week, I’d actually eat MORE than usual. Or you can use 1/3 more protein and carbs in your para-workout nutrition. You need to let supercompensation to occur, so eat up boys!
