It is very odd to not be in the gym each day. It is a passion of mine and staying away is very difficult. I've been occupying my time reading up and getting mentally ready to hit it hard when I get back on Monday. I'm still reading through Starting Strength Mark Rippetoe. This is the ultimate strength training guide and Mark is the guru on things like correct squat form and correct deadlift form. It is very dry reading, but it really helps me to visualize the correct form in the gym. I always find myself repeating in my head the things I've read in Mark's book. I have alot of respect for him.
I am more ready for this Monday than I was for last Monday. I am just debating what to do about the load. Should I jump right back in where I was at or should I increase the weight? Maybe I should decrease the weight? These are things I am thinking through carefully.
