Okay, so I have to take this week off of training because of finals at school, but next week I'll be back full swing. Concerning my "deload" week and others in the future, I had a few questions.
1) Should I take the week completely off? Should I still go to the gym, but go at about 50-60%?
2) What should my diet be like? Should I eat twice as much, or just keep it the same? (If it helps, I don't carb cycle or anything, usually on a straight bulk.)
3) I currently run WS4SB and I max out about every 6-8 weeks to track my progress. I've figured that it would be best to deload after my max out week. Since I have finals this week, I've cut my ME upper body cycle 2 weeks short. Will I be okay once I come back?
4) For my max out week, how long should it be between max out days? i.e. - Max Squat - Monday, Max Bench - Wednesday, Max DL - Friday.
Sorry for all the questions, just kind of popped into my head considering I haven't had a week off in almost 5 months.
