Stop practicing Every 3 to 6 Weeks to Give Your Body a Break: Stop practicing (Deloading ) is when you take a short break from working out. It gives your joints, ligaments, and tendons time for a full recovery.
Listen to this, if you lift very heavy and is planned into Jim Wendler’s 5/3/1 program. Others like Mark Rippetoe believe that stop workouts to recover should be done when necessary, but Wendler plans it into his training protocol. Tony Gentilecore – professional trainer – follow the same procedure.
The result that you get is getting stronger when you recover, and lifting weights over and over again without a planned break doesn’t benefit your body the time it needs to fully recover.
If you were lifting heavy weights, have a free week of training every 30 days. You’ll allow your connective tissue (ligaments and tendons) to recover from all of the loads you’re placing on them. During this week you can do the following activities:
It is a similar story to the Goose and the Golden Egg, watch always your body and increase its chance to full recovery. Otherwise, you get the result you hope to. one step ahead of two backward.
I’ve even noticed that I actually get stronger when I take a week or so off.
