I took a couple of days off so that I could enjoy a bit of my weekend with a little more "disconnect" than I normally allow myself. As an "I.T. guy", I'm pretty much connected 24/7 in one fashion or another to the world around me.
Legs day was pretty awesome. The hack squat machine at my gym is still MIA, so I've been working my leg press really hard (4 sets). I skipped straight-leg deadlifts due to time constraints, but I'll likely get those in tonight as I'll have more time for my gym run after work.
This is week #3 on creatine monohydrate as well, and week #2 1/2 off coffee. I could theoretically go back onto it, but I find I don't miss it now. The biggest test for me since my three days of detox (as it were) was on Saturday when we had our monthly maintenance window for work. Normally I'm up by 6:30AM and making a pot of coffee for the next 5-7 hours of work that follows. This time - up at 6:30AM, no need for coffee. Not bad at all!
The rolling incremental gains from this run on THT 2.0 are addictive. I just want to keep moving the weight up because mentally I feel almost invincible doing the weight I'm doing now. But, I know that if I stick to it my gains will just keep coming. I'm sure the creatine is helping out with the "invincible" part, both due to its physiological effects and the mental boost of taking something that is known to increase muscle growth and volume.
So, I'll keep the progression in check and just keep lifting. Chest and triceps day is today. I think I've become a little addicted to bench press as well. This is totally unlike me. I love it. :)
