I’m in my mid 40s, one of those lanky, hardgainer types, and I finished 20 weeks of BBB (only did 5x3 and 5x1 for 3 weeks each), and it was great, hit several PRs. But my joints and tendons need a break, even after a deload and a reset. My wife is making fun of how stiff I am, saying I move like an old man.
Is there a cycle just to aid recovery and recuperate? My normal methods of extra mobility, massage, more food aren’t working for this.
