Deload Week! Who’s Ready?

Overtraining and insufficient active rest are the culprits of plateaus and injury. Always add a deload week into your training every 4 to 6 weeks preferably. Placing these failsafes or active rest periods give the body time to recover and prepare for the heavy lifting that is sure to come after the deload week. Train smarter not harder.
