Yesterday was the end of a 4 week monohydrate creatine cycle. I will now run a short Tribulus cycle for 10 days or so, then wait a few weeks, and start creatine again.

Concentric press (pin 3, at chest level):
bar x lots
135 x 5
225 x 2
245 x 1
255 x 1
275 x failed
275 x 1 (PR by 10 pds)
225 x 7 (rep PR)


Incline DB press:
30 x 8
50 x 5
80 x 5
80 x 5
90 x 5
90 x 5
90 x 4 (contemplated going home at this point, but kept going anyways)

Closegrip pushups on incline bench:
superset until fail at various angles

Triceps pushdown:
Half rack x 10
Half rack x 20

Face pulls:
Most of rack x 10 x 4 sets
Nice job. Some of my most rewarding work happens after I decide not to go home.
