How often do you have a week off?

I tend to have a week off when my body tells me but on average how often do you guys lay off.

Apologies if this has been asked recently.

    I'm not very good at weeks off.... only when I have to really, Light weeks I can handle but off, I lose too much ground.

    usually end up having a break or holiday every 3 months so typically I'd have a week off then. Also when I'm ill I take a week out.

    Whenever I feel the body needs a break/ rest. Could be anything from 3 to 9 months.

    when I feel like I need it.. - sometimes I can feel like i'm burning out. Usually about 12 weeks or something.. - most of the time i'll revolve it around a holiday.

    I'm very pro 'week-off' every now and then. always feel strong when I get back in the gym.. - confirmation that i needed it.

    Powerlifters defintely should take a week off every few months. I'm always at my best after 10-12 weeks training,then 1 week rest....then comp

    Never taken a week off deliberatly, always waited until I was ill, had a holiday or something. Definately need a week off soon though, Westside is kicking my arse...
