    How often to deload?

    Honestly I never did deload, I been increasing weight everytime and it's been like that for years.
    If I feel exhausted , maybe for working out straight for 2month (doesn't mean I work out everyday, I workout 4-5days a week), I just take a week off and come back.

    I know some of you people might never take a break and choose to deload instead, if so, how often do you deload? And do you guys ever take the week break that I do?

    Thanks and +rep.

    I take weeks off as well and therefore don't deload. Some use both methods, others only one of the two. It's a personal choice.

    Those who deload usually do it around 5-10 times per year.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    I took a week of recently due to illness and work. Felt really good when I got back into the gym and my energy levels were much better. I can't remember who it was, but a guy here once mentioned he has seen friends who have been on vacation and had done no training for a few weeks and look much better than when they left simply by taking time off to recover fully. I have no set pattern to when I take time off. As soon as I notice that my lifts are getting worse consistently over a few workouts I'll take some time off and just make sure I am taking in good nutrition whilst doing so.

    If the body is sore and joints tired, 3 full days off is really all you need. This way youll come back and not lose any strength

    "A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercise, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks." —Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, 1785
