    5/3/1 - 2-week Deload?

    I'm going away on vacation for 2-3 weeks. I won't be able to train during this time after the 3rd wave of my current cycle.
    Would I be negatively affected if I take 2-3 weeks completely off from training?

    Before going off to vacation, I will have completed 10 consecutive training cycles. The loading has caught up with me, and I'm very close to missing reps. I'm thinking taking 2 weeks off would be awesome, and when I return, I can reset my training maxes back a couple of cycles.

    I would just use your current training max and hit your required reps only for the first week.

    It will just depend on how coordinated you feel when you train after coming back.

    When you get to that state of mind in your workouts and you have that debate in your head and part of you says ok you can stop and the other part says F*ck no, go. That is when you get strong....I don't care what you are doing, if you do not quit you will get better. -Robert Oberst

    When I went to Italy for 2 weeks while doing 5/3/1, I made sure to do some body weight exercises as I couldn't find any gyms. Pullup/chinups if you can find a bar to hang from, dips using 2 chairs (put your feet on one chair and your hands on another), single leg squats....

    This kept me where I was in 5/3/1 so I could continue. I did make sure that my first week on vacation was the deload week. I had to run 2 cycles without a deload week in between to do this.
