Nervous about my ankle thing still so I took it easy on the calves, maybe did a little too much weight on some things, form could have been better. Totally forgot to do dumbbell shrugs. Whoops.
An "off" week. Hopefully when I reset on Friday I'll be better.

Something in my ankle is really hurting whenever I'm doing hamstring exercises or stretching, for example, locking my knees and touching my toes while standing. I felt it last week and it didn't effect my lifts that much, but this week was a pain. Need to look into this before tomorrow (calves).

For the longest time, I also didn't even think of food until at least two hours after I woke up. But this is just like any other "bad habit", like drinking large amounts of coffee with sugar each day or eating heavy right before you go to sleep. If you force yourself to do it a few days in a row, it...

Need to go easy when it comes around to calf day again: one of the extensors around my left ankle has been a little stingy the past few days. I suspect the pain is caused by the calf exercises I have been doing, since I have never really concentrated on my calves this heavily.

As far as goals in the numerical or aesthetic sense, none really. Burning fat would probably be among the highest of priorities, but I am in great shape. The weight training and cardio workouts I have been doing put me at ease - I have always had a lot of stress, between working full time, or just d...

And nothing? I'm surprised. While I've always done the 5-day loading, I'm pretty sure 5 days loading + 25 regular days evens out to 30 regular days. The gains are just faster in those first 2 weeks with loading (a little motivation and encouragement, I suppose). When did you take the creatine? And w...
