am currently reaping the gains off a 5x5 (3 days per week, each major lift supported by accesory/supplimentory lifts). Just wondering what parameters others on the board used to deload/back off before they went back on the 5x5. I can always tell when im due a change as the odd niggle (Nothing serious) develops. I am now adapt at identifying these and planning training accordingly. Just wondering what sets/reps others used to for a back off/deload/lighter week.
For those who are interested im using the classic get the full 25 reps and add 5 kg. Alternatively i go heavy heavy heavy light heavy. Dan John is the man.
