    Not my normal 100%

    Is it true you should take off 1 week every 5 to 6 weeks? Not completely off but light weight for 1 week. Then go back to normal?

    I do it but it doesn't sound like a bad idea. Taking something like a weekend completely off every 6 wks wouldnt be a bad idea.

    Sorry bro I'm not sure I understand, you do take a week off or don't?

    Take one full week off, no gym, every 8 week. You gotta keep eating the same way tho.

    Don't worry about loosing muscle, your protein shakes usually have the necessary BCAA's to maintain your muscles.

    That's how I always did it and I still gotta hit a plateau.

    Correct, if you are going to take time OFF, take it OFF.

    No light crap, just totally off.
