    Question Deloading help

    Im wondering if its time for me to deload, haven’t deloaded since February and had to stop training till May cause of the outbreak thats going on.

    Since may I’ve been training very hard every workout , i do 2 heavy days and 2 volume days upper/lower. Recently I don’t get motivated at all and my joints are starting to ache. I can’t even hype up with stupendous amounts of caffeine and its to the point where blood vessels are bursting underneath my skin because of the blood pressure being affected by the caffeine ( im 16 btw)

    I’m thinking it would be a good idea to take an entire week off 7-9 days to let my body rest and recover, is this a good idea?

    Should i keep bulking or eating at normal calories required during this deload.

    Personally I'd say you've pushed it well past the point where you need a deload, so yeah take one. I'd take a couple of days completely off, then resume at half volume till all fatigue is dissipated. Next time don't wait so long.

    If I were you I would take an entire week off from the gym. Be lazy and rest up, it won’t kill your gains
    Best lifts
    600/450/485 multi ply
    550/400/510 single ply
    420/305/480 raw

    Just take some time off. You’ll come back stronger. I’d recommend 10-14 days. Eat well, rest. Keeping away from the gym like this can also recharge you mentally. Good luck!
