Are you Deloading? What even is a deload?
A DELOAD is where you reduce sets, reps, load, intensity for a week… In your program every 4-6 weeks. So if your training in progressive overload getting stronger and better at your lifts, you do need a break to prevent injury, to let your muscles, body, & cns repair. It is also a great transition into your new training block.
I know You're are a little nervous, you have made progress, you don’t want to lose it. Studies have shown us that 1 week of even no exercise for someone that has been training will not result in muscle loss. Deloads are not quitting, you are still going to the gym and still moving your body but in a less intense way to help you actually make more progress in the future.
Let's talk about what happens when we strength train
-we lift heavy in smart program like #bodystrong365
-we make tiny microtears in our muscle tissue
-when we rest the muscle tissues have time to repair...
