    Thanks guys. All about squatting. I do feel paused squats in the hammies as well, as long as there tension at the bottom. I'll be adding back in conventional deads so I may be getting in slightly more hammy work, too.

    Is there anything particular to look for in a belt for weighted pull ups, or would any random belt from my local sports store do fine?

    Friggin Inzer. 4 weeks and I still don't have my belt. Hurry the fk up.

    You'd think if a company were facing sustained increased demand that it would be a good idea to increase production capacity.

    It would be a little better if they at least gave tracking information or something so I would know if I should suspect that it's been lost. But they don't even do that.

    i've been using a 10mm toro. Took like a week to come in. Not sure if there's much of a difference between toro and inzer

    I've been instructed to do a deload week. So I'm just curious what you guys think I should do.

    Here are my lifts:
    5x5 Squat 190
    5x5 Bench 165
    1x5 Deadlift 330

    I could:
    > Do lower rep ranges at closer to max, say 70%.
    > I could do same rep ranges at 50% of max. But honestly, that's some REALLY light benching and squatting...

    Suggestions? ICF 5x5 has no set rules for deload weeks.

    TYVM guys.

    As long as it looks like it won't rip apart from having 100lbs hanging off of it then I wouldn't worry much.

    in4vids of 100lbs weighted pullups




    @Daa, I've always used deload weeks as time away from the gym completely; others will obviously have opposing views, and probably with good reason, but I personally don't see a benefit from intentionally having half-assed workouts. I like to take 3-4 days off, let my body completely rest (I'll still walk and do very low intensity things like that), and then get back to it afterwards.


    edit: my gym is actually closed for the next 3 days so I'll be taking a half-week deload. Comes at a good time as well, I've been pushing myself hard with squats and deads recently and can use a few days off

    Exact same workout with 45-60% of the weight you posted. Maybe even less.

    Can be good for technique work. It just really depends on the individual though

    I agree. Taking a week off relaxes me mentally, and makes me more excited to come back when it's over. Going at 50% just doesn't feel right.

    Again, not trying to say that it's the only/right way to do it, but the 'general consensus' was to take the week off (preference from 3 of 4 people giving input)... which would really be 'as little as possible'


    Do whatever you prefer though obviously.

    I guess I'm in the minority here, but I never do well with the full week away from the gym. Coming back, it always takes a little while to get things feeling right again and for the bar to not feel all that heavy under my normal loads. As boring as it is, i tend to take deloads as 50-65% of my normal training weight and work on technique. It's an opportunity to groove your motor patterns whilst not inducing any CNS fatigue from the heavier loads. This is only for me obviously, and others may do better with another strategy. Just voicing a different viewpoint.
    Like success, failure is many things to many people. With a positive mental attitude, failure is a learning experience, a rung on the ladder, a plateau at which to get your thoughts in order and prepare to try again. - W. Clement Stone

    Do whatever you prefer though obviously.
    +1 for take the week off.

    Also I like to go a bit "overboard" with my diet for the week....nothing drastic, but maybe increase calories 200-300 for the week to really rest and repair the body and I always feel strong as fuk the following week from the solid rest & increased intake.

    Interesting. Are you talking relative to maintenance, or just in general. Because if you stop lifting (lets assume that brings down your TDEE by 300 kcal or so), and then eat an additional 300 kcal, that's a 600 kcal swing from your normal intake; normal meaning target intake not TDEE...

    Today is day 1 of 3 for a 'mini' deload for me... was planning on keeping kcals somewhere between maintenance and target intake for bulk; although I have family events over the next few days so it's just going to be one big guesstimation anyways.

    That's overestimating how much fat you would even gain in a week IMO. Whether you are lifting or not, the whole point of a deload is to recover. Food helps that

    I never said anything about fat gain...

    I just think that a 600kcal-1000kcal surplus is unnecessary. I don't want to sound like I'm putting words into Casey's mouth, because he never specifically said he was doing this...but if someone were already bulking, then stop lifting, and increase kcals further by 200-300... I think that's a bit more than necessary.

    If I'm gonna deload, I'm not going to rigorously track calories either. Eat intelligently, but if it is a mental break then I think you should have allowances. I used to take full weeks off, but don't anymore. Just auto-regulate. Next week is the first deload I'm going to have taken for maybe the whole year. Combination of current schedule and very rigorous training routine has me thinking I'm at the peak of my overreaching and so a back-off is the right decision to move forward. Except in this situation, I'll usually just take an extra day or two off or go to a less intense routine (usually remove power work and reduce frequency a tad). During my last back-'off' I just went back to my previous workout routine. It was enough of a back-off to keep me going, but didn't fully clear my accumulated stress which this back-off should do.

    My training format is generally overreach > auto-regulate > acclimate. Basically, by overreaching your body is forced to handle newer/bigger workloads, but the auto-regulation is an integral part or you'll just get stuck within a cycle of fatigue.

    Also, I started to pull conventional again. Holy god, it feels good. I'm kind of sad to be deloading, because I was just hitting the point where I felt like it was time for a new PR. I may attempt it on monday and then start my deload after.

    Brought my grip out to pinkies on the rings for bench. Felt much more explosive, although I know benching like this multiple times a week will eventually feel like hell on my shoulders

    Always good to see Lee post now and again. You can gain so much knowledge from him and some others on the forums.


    I switched over to sumo's a few weeks ago and have been trying to work on the form some. Any critiques are appreciated.

    I don't know much about sumo form at all, but it looks pretty good.

    Don't know how you pull with that wire dangling in front of you though... gotta tuck that underneath your shirt lol
