Starting a deload week

  1. Starting a deload week


    I'm starting a deload week this week. Any tips?


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

  3. How many reps should I do??

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

  5. 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.
