How often do you have deload?4959

I've been doing PHAT now for 5½ weeks and I'm thinking that should I have deload. Doing those hypertrophy days with 60% of normal weights.

And what are your thoughts on overtraining, does it exist or is it just eating wrong?

I not only agree with that quote above but also would say look at one of those people above out busting their asses to get it done while you sit on yours and then say you're burnt out.
I personally have seen special needs people do above and beyond what people thought they would ever be capable of. I have seen children dying of cancer with no family entertaining other people and smiling just because they are alive. I have seen people with no legs walk, run and ride horseback. If they can do it, what's your excuse for not pushing yourself beyond what anyone might think you are capable of?
Overtraining, however, can lead to injury and, in the end, less training. So listen to your body in that respect.

Okay so I just up calories and keep liftin hard. The thing was that I wasn't gaining anything. My lifts and bodyweight have been the same for 3 weeks now and I was thinking that should I deload or add calories. My coaching starts 27 August and I was also thinking that should I deload before trainees program... But maybe it's that there's no such a thing as overtraining, only undereating

Layne focuses on a pretty narrow view of overtraining. It's important to consider tendons, joints etc too.

Okay, I got email couple minutes ago and there the coach said that I need to keep 3 resting days (today was the first) then 1 full body workout and then 3 resting days more. No need to reduce food intake except post workout shakes of course.

Going to start thread next week whenever I get my meal plan and routine.

@cassious He's experienced, one of the best coaches in Finland. I'm so excited!

Seriously, if your coach is telling you to rest, do it. I take one rest day a week but have been told I need more.
