Normally I would base it off of the upcoming cycle. But if that cycle has a transition week programmed in, you don't need to do a deload week prior to that - the transition week will serve that purpose. If you're really beat up, you could stretch it out another week by just reducing the prescriptions in that transition week to create a step before it.
