I usually end up taking around a week off every 3-4 months or so. Dont really plan it, time off usually occurs bc i go on vacation, get sick, or something like that. Do you take a break? If so, how do you guys feel when you get back into the gym the following week? Notice strength decrease, maybe even increase? I usually feel weaker the first week, second week i am about back to where i was before the break, Then back to making some progress.
