No mas.

Technically I’m 14 weeks straight of Base Building, and pretty much started that right out a Strong-15 run.

So… y’know… I’m tired.

I’ve considered a deload here and there but never took one. First, I really didn’t FEEL it — maybe an off day here or there, but I just didn’t feel like a need for a true deload. Plus, all this time has been working on the “defattening project” and I really did NOT want to take time off because the diet protocol was based around getting into the gym (burning fat off); heck, I started going to the gym 4x week instead of 3x just because of this! I really didn’t want to interrupt that momentum.

But it’s all catching up to me. Plus the past few weeks have been a very intensive and stressful one work-wise (nothing bad, just loads of pressure for a product release). And on top of that, right now the diet is in maintenance mode for a month to give my body a break from the “OCD” of the diet protocol.

I’ve been a bit drag-ass in getting to the gym the past some sessions, and today? The body said “enough”. I was losing it during deadlifts, and when I went for the 2nd set of 315 the bar didn’t even come off the floor.

So, called it, and going to take the rest of the week off as a “no deload deload”. Just sleep.
