Exercises during deload week
In my current programming, I'll be incorporating a deload week after every 4th or 5th week. The rule of thumb from my understanding with the core lifts is 50-60% on both weight and overall work.
How do barbell complexes fit into deload weeks? Most of my primary work currently is based off of strength/power stuff, so I was considering adding complexes during deload. Does the stress created on the body from intense complexes defeat the purpose of deloading, or is the stimulus different enough to give the major groups the break they need before going heavy the following week?
