    Don't half ass the reps. They'll be light, but focus on your technique and force development.

    It's not so much the rep range that's important; it's the intensity.

    Do the same amount of sets/reps that you would normally do but only use 65-70% of the weight.

    Don't go crazy and do a lot of other exercise (cardio, sport, etc.) because you don't feel you have worked-out properly in the gym. A de-load week is supposed to allow your body to recuperate. Enjoy the week and the slight break from training then get back to using 100% weight next week.
