  • Taking a break from PE

    After around ~7 months of PE without a real break I decided to take a week off, and I can already see benefits from it My question is: can I increase the intensity of my workout after a week off or should I continue with my usual routine when starting up again? I was supposed to up the intensity of my routine this monday(04-03) but decided to take a break instead. I'll start again monday (11-03)

    It's good to take a week or 2 off every 3-6 months. Should see rebound gains, I've always noticed the most positive PIs after taking a few days off

    I would start with your usual routine and then slowly begin increasing intensity. No need to perform a conditioning routine again after just a week off.

    Maybe do a week of usual routine, if positive PIs then begin increasing intensity on your 2nd week.
    Start: BPEL - 7.008", MEG - 5.197"
    Current: BPEL - 7.126", MEG - 5.118"

    Goal: BPEL - 9", MEG - 6.5"

      Reset your reps in a "2 steps forward/1 step back" manner. This would be difficult if you're going by a 7 month timetable. so you might want to backtrack to where you were 3-4 weeks prior to your break and reset the volume to that point. This is assuming you've been progressive with each of your sessions.

          Sure he means take a step back and then 2 steps forward. As in if you was doing 5 min clamping 4 weeks ago and 10 min clamping before your week off then go back to 5 min clamping and progress to 10 min clamping and then 15 min clamping just as an example. Big Al can confirm this though.

            My routine 3-4 weeks ago and up until monday 04-03 was 3x5 min bm with 3 min jelq in between 2days on 1 day off, so I should just do that routine? for how long? - should I be doing it for 2 weeks seeing if I have positive PI's and made some gains; if yes: continue, if not: increase intensity?

              If no PIs, increase intensity. If bad PIs, decrease and vice versa. What was your routine before your week off?

                For the "2 steps forward/1 step back" method, you'd take the average of the lowest and highest reps you performed in the previous cycle and use it to start your new cycle baseline.

                Did you perform the same routine without adding reps/time?

                  If he was performing at 5 minutes on the low end and 10 at the high end, this would average to 7.5 minutes.

                        my routine as i mentioned 3x5 min bm with 3 min jelq in between i did not add time, because i took a break instead of adding time. i was supposed to do 4x5 min bm with 3 min jelq in between this week but took a break instead. should i just do the 3x5 min when i get back or what are u suggesting?

                          To be clear- you did not add any time during each session since you started this regimen?

                              If you feel worn out then you can backtrack a bit on your volume (after a training break) to restart the cycle. If you wish to force progress you're going to need to regularly add reps and intensity at some point, though.
