#21 What Should My Approach Be With Regards To Weight And Deloading?
Extra weight is essential to add muscle. Using too little weight will limit muscle growth, but too much places excess stress on the muscles. The optimum weight is to get just enough that you can do your max lifts before taking it back a little. This can be accomplished with periods of deloading in your schedule.
A deload should be included after every three to four weeks of heavy, high volume. Back off with low-intensity low volume work for as much as a week to 10 days. This allows your muscles the chance to recover. It will also allow you to feel re-energized when you get back to higher volumes. This can help to keep you motivated and ensure that you have the right attitude to persevere and hit your goals.
A bigger stronger, back is an essential aspect to your overall physique. If you want to see gains in this area, which can be the most stubborn for many lifters, all you have to do is just stick to these tips and you should enjoy impressive results in an amazingly short period of time.
