The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Week off

    Apologies if this has been asked before but I was unable to find it in the search.

    I know a week off every 8-10 weeks is good and allows for full recovery etc. I have nearly finished my 9th week of HCT-12 (2 cycles and 1 deload), and am wondering if it would be better to take a week off instead of the deload week? Or is it designed that you could basically indefinately do the cycles with a deload every 5th week?

    Life's going to throw you the odd enforced week off anyway - illness, vacation abroad, whatever, so the deloads should be sufficient to mitigate any fatigue. So 'no', no weeks off just deload.

    Then again, recovery is a personal thing, so it's your call.

    Thanks, I'll deload again and see how I am coming back
