    Do you always train heavy or go light/heavy weeks???

    This is my question to fellaz off cycles at least...cuz i konw when Im on i train balls to the wall heavy...

    however im off for the next 4 months and it seems as though im in the saem strength areas....i was thinking of training heavy 3 out of 4 weeks in the month...

    like this..

    week1 -heavy 6-12 rep sets
    week2 -heavy
    week3 -light 12-20 rep sets
    week4 -heavy

    I always go as heavy as I can with strict for for 5-8 on upper body and 8-12 on lower body for all my mass building exercises.

    I train heavy all the time. It is probably wrong but every time I train light, I loose strength.

    i do the 2 or sometimes 3 wks heavy on a high cal diet and 1wk light (maintainence) on a moderate cal diet. it has worked better for me than heavy week in and week out. i think it ensures high concentration and prevents the body from getting jaded.
