Rest and recovery are super important especially as you age.
    I like Mountain Dog training. High intensity; optimal results; focused; generally safe.
    Dogcrapp not so much. (Constantly shooting for rep records with only 20 seconds rest is for the youngin's lol)

    I like all the conversations bing had around deloading. Can I get some feedback on when most people deload (training) in terms of their drug use? Before a blast, after a blast, middle of cruise? I know it depends on when you physically and mentally need to deload, but if one were to plan out a deload, when would be optimal in terms of PEDs?

    Don't plan your training breaks around drugs. Just take them when you need them no matter where you're at in your cycle.

    I have my guys deload every 8 weeks or so but, if depends on how they are feeling.

    Guys can be four weeks into a new blast and I'll have them dial back training for a week or so if it's needed.

    While you're on, it's harder to gauge if you need a break because strength and recovery are enhanced. This is when you have to just take your scheduled break no matter if you're killing the log book (if you use one) or not.

    Soft tissue injuries are seen in the middle or middle/end of a cycle more regularly for this reason.

    Gotta know when to hold em and know when to fold em more or less.

    this right here...

    on paper it may seem ideal to keep pressing forward because serum levels are now optimal and everything is starting to peak, naturally we would want to take advantage of that, but sometimes dloading for a couple days or a week and then coming back you make even better progress.. around week four or five when serum levels are at their peak for me that is when I noticed I need to step back for a couple days because my appetite get suppressed, and sometimes rest can be difficult. once I have that slight unplug everything balances out..

    it could be difficult because we're constantly looking in the mirror or stepping on the scale but in reality were not falling behind at all.. it's just a couple days and things can change dramatically in a week's time thereafter.. I know for myself my diet an appetite is back on point again.. the same applies for rest..
