    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Deloading on my 5x5 (my 5x5 pt3)

    As I head into my 4th week of my 5x5 routine, I think it would be good for me to deload next week (since my MA training will also be cut back a bit).

    I understand the basic precepts to deloading and have a few (well one, i guess) general questions.

    Would the deloading week be a good time to switch from the barbell to the dumbbells?

    Since I will be dropping the weight, I thought deloading might be a good time to get some extra stabilizerz working as well as try to smooth out and left/right side dominance issues.

    And, since I am also training in MA about 4 times a week, should I be deloading more frequently (every third or fourht week)?

    If you're deloading, you don't want to do new work, as that would just put a different stress/taxing on your body. The purpose of the deload is to rest and recover.

    Deload as you feel necessary. If you aren't making gains, prolly time to do it. Or, if you come into the gym and everything feels a lot heavier/more tiring than before.

    Edit: Also, grappling should be hitting your stablizers pretty good in the first place.

    I had to drop down a little on some weight when I started doing the forms more correctly. That is why I haven't take a week off yet. That makes sense. Thanks.
