Hi Uphill Athlete!
After listening to the podcast on Overtraining, and the video from Sam on muscle endurance training, I have incorporated the at-home/gym muscle endurance circuit once a week on Tuesdays into the training regimen. I’m also trying to take every fourth week easy with more discipline to conoslidate/better recover/better prevent over-training. I’ve only started this newer structure to my training this January, so I’m about to have my first “rest” week.
I get that you de-load during that fourth week by reducing volume, but I’m wondering how that applies to the at-home muscle endurance circuit? The program for the circuit has a consistent build week over week. Should I therefore continue that build during the rest week? Or repeat the week before as a consolidation? Or de-load a set or two (e.g. repeat the load from ~2 or 3 weeks prior) for that rest week?
Thank you again for all you do and your help!
