This was my first Deload Week during the new Renaissance Periodization Hypertrophy program.  It was also the first Deload Week that I actually wanted to come.  Volume was getting high and I was actually looking forward to a deload.  I actually felt that the deload would help me and I didn't get super antsy the first few days.
