Week off from lifting; Taking a vacation this month.

I was looking through my workout logs yesterday, and it’s been nearly 3.5 months since I’ve taken a week off from lifting. I was looking forward to my workout yesterday, but I decided that the smart play would be to go ahead and take this week off from lifting (I’ll still be doing my scheduled cardio). I think that taking a little break while eating my maintenance diet will do wonders for my strength. Also, my body is feeling a little worn down right now. Nothing serious, just minor little aches and pains that I’ve been ignoring. I’m going to be performing a lot of big, heavy compound lifts this summer; I want my body to be fully rested so I can remain injury-free. I feel that the more strength I can build this summer, the more successful my upcoming bulk will be when I switch my primary focus from strength to hypertrophy.

I realized yesterday that I have a ton of vacation time that needs to be used up sometime before early August or I’ll lose it. I’m going to go ahead and take a full two weeks off later this month. My vacation will start on July 21st and run through August 5th. There will be no updates to this site from July 21st through August 5th. Daily updates will resume on Monday, August 6th. This is actually great timing, because the builders are scheduled to break ground on our new home within the next week or two. I’ll be able to visit the job site as much as I want over my vacation and make sure things get off to a great start. Even though I won’t be updating the main site while I’m on vacation, I will be making regular updates to my New Home Construction Journal. Please note that this journal is in the VIP section of the forum because there is a lot of personal stuff in there that I really do not want archived by search engines (search engines can’t crawl the VIP forums). If you haven’t already done so, you’ll need to instantly upgrade your forum membership if you want to check out the journal.

Have a wonderful day!
