What is the method for "weighing" or otherwise knowing an emerald is ready/able to safely breed?

My female is 4-5 years old- very VERY healthy. Eats every time she is offered food-- never had regurge problems and she is handlable.

My male is 3-4 years old-- also very healthy- eats every time its offered, etc. good weight- etc

I know about cooling them down, and introducing them.

I am familiar with how ball pythons work-- and most people leave the male in for 2-3 days and then put him with a diff. female--- I have read to just house the 2 emeralds together for a month, seperate and feed and give a week off- and put them back together for a month..... not sure that sounds quite right to me.

Our emeralds are more active than "most" display snakes-- as they are handled regularly and our female has done shows/demonstrations before so they are not just sitting in a cage doing nothing- so I feed twice a month to maintain a healthy weight.... while I am reading other people feed one larger meal once a month?

anyway- I've had my emeralds for a few years and am perfectly happy with how they are health and attitude wise so i'm not looking to change my husbandry-- just get info on breeding processes.

Thanks
