Wasn't anything major...I may have been fighting a beginning cold, but it never took root. Also, I think it's just 3 solid weeks of 5 sessions per week after being on the bench for so long...

We'll see how the next few days go. If still sketchy, then I'll probably go with 3 weeks of work and then a 4th week deload to keep the train chugging along.

How about you?!
It seems counter intuitive to deload so often, but I have been doing it with 5/3/1 and it hasn't caused me any issues. It's kept me fresher, mentally and physically. I think if you are feeling beat up after 3 weeks of solid lifting, take the deload week. But maybe stay flexible. There may be times when you can go 4,5,6,7 or even 8 weeks.
In other words, do what you need to do to stay healthy. In the long run, I am of the opinion that it will only help you and will not hinder you.

Keep up the great work man!
