One of the most important things you can do in training is to de-load the body.
What does it do?
#1) Increases your strength
#2) Active Recovery
#3) Break from the constant beating you take
If you fail to plan plan to fail! Many people don’t do this and it’s important you do. Try and cut loads to about 50% or more depending on how you feel. If you go into your next phase of training and your feeling beat, you went to hard during your de-load week. If your trying to get stronger this week must be done!
Here’s another day of lifting:
1) Dead Lifts 5×5 185, 205, 225, 245,255
2a) DB Bench Presses 3×10-12
2b) DB Row 3×10-12
3a) Varied Pushups 3x sub max reps
3b) Varied Pull ups 3 x sub max reps
4) Finished with some grip and Abdominal work
This workout was a good one for me! Some days I find that it’s tough to get motivated to train, but realize that what you eat has a big impact on that. If energy levels are down try and feel what your body wants to do. Big difference on being fatigued or just plain lazy!
I’ll do this workout for three weeks and follow up the fourth week with a series of de-loading workouts. Feeling wrather than pushing is the key here.
Always remember to keep it simple. You don’t need complicated and fancy movements to get results. Just lift to get strong and eat right. I will say this though there are some sick workouts out there that will cause you to burn an insane amount of calories. However in my world I could care less about a calorie or how many I put into my body. I focus on good food and lift my ass of.
