I had heard alot about deloading from a lot of people. My gains were not dry and I was steady complaining after 8 years any dieting down or cardio and My arms legs "muscles shrivled up" literally. I ended up getting mad and just strait cutting constantly for about 1 year and 5 months. I was not that big when I became frustrated about the dieting 205lbs. My chest I thought was huge almost 50" and My arms puny 1/4" away from 16. I was gaining strength steady. I also changed My routine to a 7-14 day split ate maintanence, and did at least 20hrs of cardio per month I lost 30Lbs.
So now I'm back getting back on a regular routine, already I've gained 1 lb in 1 week. I don't eat breakfast or lunch.
My routine looks like this
Legs stomach and chest
Thursday back shoulders and arms
9 sets each for 10 reps
I walk at least 1 hour per day.
My goal is Dry gains. Am I on the right track?
