    Take a week off and try adding an extra rest day or two into your schedule.

    you should never go a full year without a break, I take a one week break about every 3 months, I do not do anything during this break.

    My breaks come when i get sick. If im coughing like a madman, then i wont go. Until that cough, stops i dont workout. I get sick about once, maybe twice a year. Probably two, 1 week breaks per year for me.
    Damn

    I'd take a week off (but agree you shouldn't go an entire year w/out time off) and then try a 4 day split for a change and an added recovery day
