    Break from training






    How often do you take a week off from training?

    I know this might be a loaded question based on people having different goals.

    I work out for my own health and enjoyment and don't plan to enter shows. However I am taking this week off due to being under the weather. I think it has been over 3 months since my last break. I don't schedule breaks, but just take them when sick or on vacation.

    I do 4 days on, one day off. I have a bad shoulder and that one day off really helps out. That shoulder is the same reason I put arms or legs in between shoulder and chest days. I cant do overhead lifts 2 days in a row.
    Then twice a year, I take a whole week off. That break makes me feel like a new man

    I take 5-6 days off every 6-10 weeks of training, depending on what my training phases are like.

    Your diet will set you free.

    I hate exercise, I love training.

    Dont worry youve got the right mindset and method. Continue what you do. I dont schedule breaks too. Ijust listen to my body when it tells me to rest.

    I have a difficult time taking a break or deloading but forced myself to deload last week after about 10 weeks of training. Did 65% of the weight I typically use and can't believe the strength I've had this week. Joints appreciated it as well. Going forward, I'm scheduling a deload every 10 weeks or so.
