I take a deload every 4-8 weeks. I usually know it's time when I'm thinking ahead to how I can adjust my routine for the next "blast". If I have any thoughts about tweaking a few things that tells me I'm not totally into what I'm doing now so physical and mental fatigue has accumulated.During those 2 weeks do you do any weight training at all?
Curious if it would be better to not lift at all for those 2 weeks, or do something like a minimum effective volume (MEV) of 4 sets per week (for each bodypart) just to try and limit any muscle atrophy during that time...
As to what to do for that week, 10 days, 2 weeks just recover IMO. Don't need a perfect plan, have some cardio, hit the gym a few times very brief workout, stretch, sauna etc. Don't need a set routine on a deload this is a time to relax recover. Just don't get fat or train so much you don't recover
