Deload week

Discussion in 'Strength & Conditioning Discussion' started by Foulsmeller**, Dec 5, 2005.

  1. I've been feeling run down the last few weeks, so I'm toying with the idea of doing a deload week.
    Something like supersets of: 50 pushups, 10 chin ups, 50 situps, 5 pulls ups, 25 jump squats..then resting 2 minutes and repeating 4 times. I'm planning to do that 4 days with a day of light running between. Any thoughts?

    I think deloading is necessary in any routine.
    But that does seem like a bit much work for "deloading" though.
    But it might benefit you anyway.
    In any case, if you feel generally spent, rest.

    My deloading weeks are just me relaxing. Start your week by cooking a turkey, and spend the next 7 days eating it. If one turkey doesn't get you through to day 7, feel free to cook another one.

    a deload week is entirely dependent on what you did before it.

    Second that. If you don't want to rest entirely (which has always worked best for me), then we'd need to see what you were doing that fatigued you.
