Time Off Before Next Cycle

Well,i’m going into week number 8 on Madcow’s version of the 5x5 and if i had to guess id say i have about 2 -3 weeks more before I stall on my lifts…Just looking to see how long you guys think i should rest before moving to the next cycle,and about how long would be a good idea to rest before testing for my new 5rep maxes…

I’d also liked to say that this was the most productive routine i have ever done and i’m looking foward to doing the advanced cycle.Thanks in advance Jack
