My deload week falls on spring break. I have this whole week off from work and so does my family? I'm thinking of taking this whole week off from training. I've been working out using 5/3/1 for 2 years and I've never taken a whole week off! My goal right now is to gain some weight in muscle so for the past month I have increased my calories, protein intake, and volume in the gym. I've gone from 195 to 199 in a month since my diet change and increased volume.
I'm use to a weekly routine and this week it's going to be way off... Which is why I'm thinking of just loosening up and not worry about weight training or my eating schedule. Any insights, experience, or advice on how a week off might affect my weight goals or performance in the gym would be great! Thanks!
