Keep smashing Creech.
I've never thought of it that way. Is it worth the trade-off of using straps rather than holding the bar yourself to do the heavier rows?

Thursday
I've started supplementing 5g of creatine a day along with my trial usage of c4. I mix it with my PWO protein, and I took my first dose yesterday. It could just be confirmation bias or placebo effect, but today I felt like superman!

Push Press
barx10
135x8
155x3
185x3
205x3x4 sets. Think I could've taken any set to 5 easily, just stopped at 4 sets because I wanted to let another guy squat.

Incline Press
205x8
215x8x2

Arnold Press
65s x8x3

Chin-Ups
Bw + 25 x5x3

Dips
Bw + 45 x10x3

Decline Skull Crushers (only bench open...) SS Alt DB Curls
80x10x3 SS 45s x8x3

No time for the row machine

Creatine does allow you to fatigue at a slower rate. Not sure 5g would do it or if it would make you feel like superman, but it's a nice feeling if you get it! Lift on my friend!

Yes, absolutely. I never row without straps. With straps I could row more than 120 pound dumbbells for 10 reps. With them I did 265 for 10 reps last year. Same for barbell rows.

Using them will allow you to build back strength in ways not possible without them. this will help your deadlifts and overall grip strength.

The only time I do strapless is on the platform, and I can pull 700 pounds easy.

Agreed, I don't expect to feel the effects for a couple more weeks - probably just my anticipation haha! Thanks!

Monday
Pressed (haha) for time today, hurried through stuff. Still didn't get to do extra pressing, will try to increase volume on Thursday.

Bench Press - paused, with a press command. Just for fun, never done it.
barx10
135x8
225x5
275x3
315x1 - hard. Hit the rack and just didn't set up right.
320x1 - EASY. Used wrist wraps on this one and it flew up after the command, setup was butter and my elbow tuck just felt right.

DB Bench Press
110s x8x3 these were easier than last week

Chest Fly
210x8
220x10x2

Alt DB Curl SS Dips
45s x8x3 SS BW+45 x10x3

Cable Curl
67.5 x10x3

Rowing
6:30, 1500m

Can definitely tell I'm taking Creatine now. Had plenty of energy to keep going (time constraints) and my arms were PUMPED.

Tuesday
Deadlift
135x10
225x5
315x3
365x5
405x3
455x1
505x1 PR strapless. Flew up (my opinion backed by partner), but I almost lost my grip at the top. Gotta get my hands tougher! Tore off 2 calluses
535x1 PR Strapped. Flew up again, but got away from my body past the knee so had to grind it past that. I'm confident if I can get my grip sorted out I can hit 550s.

Bent-over Row; strapped
225x8
245x8
265x8 PR I guess, never done with straps

DB Row; strapped
100x12x3 / per arm...will definitely go up on these next time. Felt it a lot in my rear deltoid, am I doing this right?

Lat Pulldown
160x8x3

Hammer Strength Iso Pulldown
4 plates x9x3

Fin. Huge forearm and biceps pump. Whatever muscle or tendon you work out when you do reverse curls is absolutely fried right now. I had to sit down with my arms on armrests to stir whilst cooking tonight !
