So I've decided to take this winter to really focus on strength for the first time in my life (I live in maine so we got long ass winters lol) No more bodybuilding routines for awhile.
I have already started down this road by running the SL's 5x5. Im 6 weeks into it and am loving it. My numbers are shooting up (likely from being sad in the first place) and I planned on following it up by running 5/3/1.
I know I should take some kind of break/deload in there and dont really want to run them right into eachother and run myself into the ground. The 5x5 has been great but it has been very taxing.
Any advice on how I can approach this? Just take a week or so off?
