    The best way to spend time off from the gym is by going on a trip/vacation. I've spent time off on trips to 49ers road games, Puerto Vallarta, Monterey Bay, wine country in Nor Cal. Just make sure you get out of your house.

    In a perfect world I would agree! No vacation left this year for me.

    Just do a deload. Barring injury, there is not a real reason to take a week off from the gym.

    What exactly do you mean by deload?

    Just relax bro. Sleep late, eat well, go out... It's a week bro. I don't know how old you are but many of us have had many times when we miss a week or more for family, for friends, due to travel, etc... You will be fine and feel great when you go back.
    Working out does not define you, its a hobby. Enjoy it but keep it in perspective.
    Peace.
    When you leave this world, will it be a better place because you were here?
