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!
Great advice, man. Thanks...

In the past, I've never really deloaded..which often meant burnout that threw off my progress...

I hear a lot of good lifters on PL programs praising deloads...I will definitely add it to the toolbox....as needed!
