Default Quick tips for a deload!

This is my most recent article. I feel a lot of people struggle with the deload.

Deload Tips

The deload week is as important of a training week as any other.
This is the time to dial in form, physically refresh and mentally reload. It can also be one of the hardest weeks for us due to the fact we always want to push training hard. Rather than look at deload weeks as a curse, here are five tips to help you get the most out of that week.

1. Focus on Form. Your deload week has to have just as much focus as a normal training session. Focus on the small form cues that you often forget during a heavy squat. The more you practice these, the more likely it will become second nature to you. The rule you want to live by is to treat every set the same. It shouldn’t matter if the bar is empty or loaded to the max; form needs to be perfected, not forgotten.
