    Just take the week off and do nothing, it will be just as or more productive then what you have up there.

    Your making it pretty complicated then what it needs to be.

    1. Take the entire week off and do cardio.

    Or

    2. Go in get a nice pump and leave without going to failure.

    Deload doesn't mean just do bodyweightm exercises or even train any differently then you are now. Here's are 2 popular ways to deload

    1. Take a week of then just pick up where you left off
    2. Take a few days off then when you go back into training do half the volume for a few workouts. Example If your chest day is flat bench 225x10x3 then incline 185x10x3 then 2 sets of flies try something like 135x10x3 or 225x5x3 for flat bench. Then maybe 1 or 2 light sets of incline and skip flys

    for the record my body is pretty good at handling high volume. I eat 4000+ cals/day. Also I have decent strength for my bodyweight so the rep ranges on the above exercises will be decently high (>10)

    Deload?

    I have been training every day for the past 40 days straight with pretty high volume. I am taking a break from lifting for the next 5 days due to studying for final exams.

    How much volume should I do for my "deload"? Here's what I was thinking

    Day 1: Off
    Day 2: 5 sets of inverted rows to failure, 5 sets of pull-ups to failure
    Day 3: 5 sets of pushups to failure
    Day 4: Bodyweight squats for 30 minutes
    Day 5: Off
    Day 6: Return to lifting

    Is this too much for a deload phase? I'm just sticking to stuff that I can do in my room so I don't have to waste time going to the gym
