Assistance Work on Deload Week


#1

Hello tomorrow will be my first deload week
i read that i only do the 5 3 1 with 40 , 50 and 60 % of the max. Weight and i dont go all out in any of these sets. So my question is if i only do this few sets or if i should/could do the 1-2 assisantce works i do normally?! Thx

Understand the purpose of the deload and this will answer itself.


#3

Do what needs to be done. No more, no less.

How you feel and what you need is impossible to answer: refuel/reload/rejuvenate the machine.

Thx
I will do the 531 and 4-5 easy bodyweight sets and let at least 2-3 reps in the tank
P.s.: i spoke with my coach and he said i should reduce the weight training a bit and should concentrate more and more on boxing

If I were you I’d cut it down even further, to lifting twice a week doing something like this:

Day 1-

press 531
deadlift 531
chin ups - 3x5, weighted

Day 2-

bench 531
squat 531
chin ups - 50 reps total (bodyweight)

Your 1RM is infinitely less important than your skills and your endurance for your goals.

Thanks for your post i will think about it but i would like to go 3 times a week with less volume and more focused on my conditioning.
I spoke with my coach he said 3 times a week would be ok because iam a boxing beginner and the beginners only train twice a week in the club. So i go 3 times to the gym and focus more on jumping rope treadmil and after a few months i will cut the gym time into twice a week and will go 3-4 times a week to the box club when the coachs say it to me
