I wanted to get a discussion going regarding deload weeks in the context of bodybuilding. We're obviously not talking about the standard pre-planned deload you see from a PLing perspective in Wendler's 5/3/1...but that week you're starting to feel a bit run down or nursing a minor injury and need to scale back. Meadows is one of the few BBers I've actually seen explicitly discuss it in his training articles. So:
- about how often do you do it?
- what do your workouts look like when you do?
- how much, if any, do you modify diet/cardio?
If you're one of those "I don't ever need to deload" type of guys, this thread isn't for you, but thanks for visiting anyway =)
