    Deload Before Blast

    I am deloading for one week before my next blast. When training after a deload I start with low volume and work my way up to higher work loads. My questions is, during this low volume phase at the beginning of my blast, am I wasting the Dbol? Should I start the Dbol a few weeks in reap the true benefits of it?

    Cycle:
    Weeks 1-12, Test C - 500mg/week
    Weeks 1-4, Dbol 30mg/day

    If you're not training optimally I wouldn't waste drugs during that time

    I’d hit the dbol either a couple weeks deep or during the last phase. Just my opinion.

    I de-load when life happens. Cuz I don’t get paid to wear g strings and flex in front of faggots. But, I love running 7g of gear and punching holes in my walls and never posting physique pics so we can all be in awe of how awesome everyone else is. Plus I love talking shit on the internet cuz I’m a giant pussy in real life.

    Suck me

    So deload means go off gear. Like refeed means eat?

    Its a reduction in training volume and or intensity. Its a common practice before stepping on stage and right after the show or you can just schedule a deload after a balls to the wall blast to restore your CNS.

    I'll do a four day deload every 5 weeks or so, but keep on pinning. Keeping diet and sleep in check during the deload is obviously important.
    It's a nice reset for when some of those nagging lifting pains are around.
    Deload can vary. I see most people tend to favor generally around a one week deload.
    I usually shoot for PRs following a good deload. That's the funniest part...

    That's how to do it.

    You can be preventative in deloads or reactive.

    I plan mine out so I take my break BEFORE I need to. Since I started doing this I get many fewer little nagging injuries then before.

    If I have something pop up, I'll start my deload early if it's close.

    It really all depends on recovery so, paying attention to the pattern of your strength is pretty key to do so before you need it. Hence, log book.

    Exactly. Still good to do whether you stop blasting or not.
    If you did stop blasting, it would also have to be well timed if coming off. Depending on user's ester(s) being used, it could be anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

    This is interesting I read about you guys “de-loading” I never knew what this meant...

    Currently I think I am doing a type of "de-loading” but Ive always called this my "instinctive training” ......I just finished a 6 week run and i don’t want to just take off from the gym so I have been getting creative with my training, incorporating some cardio and more stretching...keeping a pump and staying conditioned is my goal. I’m doing upper body one day and then lower body the next day, it’s not exactly what you guys are doing but I believe it is serving the same purpose for me

    This is exactly what I did but Im talking about brutal MD type training or DC where you are absolutely spent. I dont train like that anymore but when I did, the deload with less drugs was purposeful to give your body a break from heavy constant stress. Rest and recovery are super important especially as you age.
