Deload / Lower CNS Stress cycling

Postby vamp » Mon Mar 03, 2014 9:53 pm

Okay, I have been researching and not finding anything resembling an answer and that's okay because I can discuss it here. Some of you know I have been challenging myself as hard as possible to get back strength and flexibility and with it better control over my nervous system. For the past 5 1/2 weeks I have been doing a 5x5 workout and with some pretty high weights, especially squats (for me).

So, I am now hitting a wall, not so much in strength but with nerve pain do to my disease from the stress on the nervous system. I know cycling programs is helpful every 6-12 weeks in dealing with strength, joints, nerves system, etc. At 6 weeks I feel I should cycle to help with the nerve pain. So, A lifting program without squats, deads is essential in my view.

Now the question.... Should I opt for 2 weeks of cardio or perhaps low weight high rep or still high weight just varied exercises. Strength and power are my concerns, losing weight and being th next fitness model GQ are not as high on the list... To be honest I am more of a power lifter type . But with nerve issues I am wondering which would be most benificial for a two week no spinal load type program. That and is 2 weeks to long or short to let the CNS calm down so I can go back to heavy loads for another 6-8 weeks?
