Hi folks… I Trouble understanding the “deload” week. I read that during your deload week you lower the weight to about 50-60% and that you work on technique,flexibility, etc. Now lets say i have been doing 5x5 workout for awhile and during my deload week i would lower my working sets to 50-60% and do the 5x5 workout? During your deload week should i do the same workout with lighter weights or was the purpose of the deload week more on flexibility and doing different assistance exercises?
- Next question on the 5x5 workout. For the 5x5 workout should all 5 sets be the same weight? or should they be a little higher each set? I read that you should add 5 lbs per week or session but i was not sure if the weights are the same for every set.
