Does anyone do this?

I'm now doing weeks at lighter weight and not to failure every six weeks or so and funded out helps stave injury and immune suppression (ie not get sick as much)

Definitely.

I try to increase my weight every workout. If I stall for 2 consecutive workouts, I drop back down to about 60-65% of my weight and then start building back up again. This gives everything a chance to heal if necessary and also to fix any sloppy form that may have crept in when pushing the weight to the limit.

Love your honesty bro, yeah it may be an age thing but just spinning the wheels some weeks seems to allow some recover without stopping.completely
