Thank you BtB! Christmas was awesome. Had the good side of the family descend upon us this time! HaHa.

My original plan was to train during Christmas week, but honestly I was a little frustrated with that deadlift, my hands were ripped up, all the family were together for the first time in a while doing stuff, etc. I just had no motivation to lift at all. I've been going at it pretty hard, so maybe just a little burned out, and I made the executive decision to take the week off and re-start after the holidays.

I feel much better overall physically and especially mentally, and am itching to get back at it which is how I want to feel rather than forcing myself which would have been the case if I'd plowed through.

However, I'll have had about 10 days of doing very little beyond my daily morning BW exercises by the time I hit it again on Jan 1st, so I think it prudent to get a little revved up before moving on to week 5. Week 5 starts with 4 rep max sets, so I don't see myself hitting them well without some run up.

I'm thinking I should re-do week 4 to get going again. So, that's my plan uness someone else thinks different or has a better idea?

I wish everyone a happy New Year!

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
