Take time off from lifting and how much do you train?
I take time off whenever I feel tired or have had a stressful day/week. I usually train twice a week.
I have just started training super low volume once every month or so. I find that my current routine is so demanding that if I keep it up then I end up getting sick, regardless of how much time I spend sleeping/eating/recovering, so when I see the first signs of sickness I change to a full week of one set per exercise instead of the usual 5 and do only 1/3 of my cardio.
I train 4 times per week. I take time off when I go on vacation. Usually 3-7 days off once per year. I sometimes take time off during finals when I really need it and feel hammered..
Diet is key, the calorie is king
"Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."
"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination
alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933)
30th U.S. President

i take time off when i want, i dont have a system. I've been off for about 3 months, and i look besically the same, actually probabaly gained a few pounds over all (mostly fat, but i'm bulking anywayz). I'm really blessed with the ability to maintain my physique for a very long time without much upkeep. I think it's because my mom was an olympic gymnast and my dad was an acrobat.

I Take a complete week off about ever 6 weeks. Always have come back stronger after that week off.
NOt only stronger.. but much more psychologicaly ready to lift again.. which is much more important. This will make sure you stick out the weight lifting for years.
I take time off whenever I get burned out or get too stressed from work. WHen I start getting ansy again, like I have way too much energy or I want to start moving furniture around, I start lifting again.

If I take time off, it's usually only a day or two. I only do that when I feel really crappy.
I train with weights 5 days per week.
