Full rest isnt bad but its not optimal.

Yeah Dave’s right “Research has shown that a week off will not put your CNS back to norm, but also that detraining occurs after 48hours- so you need to train in the last week to avoid detraining and 1 week is not sufficient for deloading”

Alot of powerlifters are tapering for meets over 4 weeks. They keep intensity and taper off the volume, then in the last week before a comp they use very little volume and go up to about 75%.
Then 2 full days off before a comp.
