Deloading - I'm a fan
A few weeks ago I mentioned that I would be incorporating a deload week in the week before my period, to see if it would help my fatigue around that time. I'm happy to report that my deload week last week worked a treat. I dropped my sets back and lowered the weight. This made workouts manageable around this time (no missed workouts), I didn't need the extra sleep I usually do, and my overall energy levels were better. The program I've just started incorporates a deload week in the fourth week, which should coincide well with my cycle again.
