No. It comes after the "5/3/1" week. The 3 week is a 3/3/3+ week (like the first week, but with higher percentages of your training max, and obviously 3 reps in place of 5).
The deload is a weel of 5/5/5 that constitutes the 4th week in the normal 5/3/1 cycle. Just do your regular lifts for sets of 5 with 40, 50, and 60% (no AMRAP) of your training max after the 5/3/1+ week when you feel the need.
Oh, I see. I used the blackironbeast calculator and selected the 2x a week method. There is no deload week for that method. 3x a week where every time has heavy lifts is a little too much for me at my age. I do workout 4x a week, but one of those days is powercleans (today was only 70lbs) and the other is pushups and RDLs (which I'll give up once the squats and deadlifts get too heavy.)
UGH< SBHikes, I wish I could kidnap you for a week and get you out of the valley of the nipped, tucked, starved and injected.
If I lived in Mississippi I'd be the most beautiful girl in any room. If I lived in the Mid-west I'd look like a freakin' leather catcher's mit. Everybody there has such peaches and cream skin. I live in botox/boob-job So Cal. Even my sister has had botox, collagen lips, boob job, laser hair removal and god knows what else. Thank god I'm not in big hair Bakersfield though. Good god. Like Texas in the middle of California.
I have ALL my hair plus tattoos. That's how I do it. If you don't like the natural look stay away from me. Also, I like a man with a righteous beard. I'm secretly incredibly jealous of beards.
Female, 5'3", 50, Max squat: 202.5lbs. Max deadlift: 225 x 3.
