just wanted to share that if any of you are not deloading - try it.
I did it by 'accident' sorta. I pulled something in my lower back on a Monday (Squat) so for the rest of that week I took it easy, like real easy, the following Monday it still hurt so I for the rest of that week I took it easy... I hit the gym but low weight, half as many exercises, etc...
So yesterday I still felt it in my lower back but only barely so I decided to try and squat, figured I would go light and see how it felt. Felt fine, so upped the weight, felt fine, upped the weight, felt fine... did 5 reps of a weight that I could only do 2 reps of 2 weeks ago. All my working sets increased so far this week and expect them to across the board. Sure I add a little weight each week but this week was able to add more than usual.
I think every 8 weeks I am going to take 1 off.
