    I'd say take the week off. You won't shrink , but your constant pump will probably slightly disappear. Other than that if you keep your diet good, you will probably notice yourself growing a bit since you are recovering from 4 months of heavy training.

    Take the week off, you won't shrink or lose your muscle. Your body grows when it's in a state of rest, not when you're in the gym. If it's been 4 months since your last break, than it's time for another. Personally I like to take 1 week off every 3 months or so.

    I agree, take the week off... some of the biggest gains I got were in the weeks following a week off... so I now take a week off every 2-3 months.

    My guess is that it gives your body time to recover/repair more completely, and you come back stronger.

    Of course thats my personal experience, other peoples mileages may vary.

    I'm with the other Bros .. take the week off. One week off every 3 or so months is a very important part of training.
