I think one of the things the original poster wanted to know is this -
The article describes a 3-week cycle. Do you recommend a 4th deload week before starting a new cycle (like the basic 5/3/1)?
Or is the intention to loop through the 3-week cycle without a deload week?
I'm just finishing my second cycle and have put on a couple of lean pounds. Don't know that I'd call myself a "hardgainer" with challenged genetics, I'm just an old fart. So far I haven't puked during a widow-maker set. Looking forward to more gains.
