I think a three week cycle works well just about everywhere if your training. For me personally I find anything longer I feel too bet up or end up getting, but it also dosent warrant for a deload eithier. after my three week wave of 2x8x80%, 2x6x80+10-15kg, 3x5x80%+10-15, I start over and add 5kg if need be. My training partners find this works extremely well, we normally train 50-51 weeks per year depending on if we go awayfor a vacation or not. but with that there always need to be a light day for recovery work or soft tissue work done to keep the quads loose enough to pevent knee pain.
