Advice on taking time off
I am feeling beat to hell this weekend. Everything hurts. My hair has DOMS. So here's the question. Should I man up, push through, and see what happens, or take a day off or maybe deload for a week.
My current thought is to hammer it with full intensity this week, eat more, and see how I feel next weekend. If I still feel like I got hit by a truck, then do a deload with some lighter (50%ish) weight and higher reps to get blood flowing but give my CNS and joints some rest.
I'm not worried about soreness and malaise so much as injury prevention. Let me know your thoughts.
