I am going to be on a 4 month break starting next week and will be going back to my hometown for 2 months in December. I was thinking maybe I should switch back temporarily to a ME 3-5RM ‘rep scheme’ for the 8 weeks. This is because short term gym membership is very expensive and I don’t want to take 2 deload weeks and feel like I’m not working very hard at all. What do you guys think?
