Matt makes a good point about being flexible with the timing. I do plan back-off weeks generally, but I also watch what's happening and adjust as needed. Typically I plan a cycle with weight progressions, etc but only give the lifters 1 week at a time. Based on how they're doing, I make adjustments as we go. But having a plan in place first makes it much easier to stay on track, especially when you're working with several programs at once - it's too hard to keep track of everyone's training and the plans I have for it in my head.
