Dan, you used that phrase in regards to having strength in the workout -- cool phrase. I have noticed that I have more strength in the right now during this cycle than I have had before. Just wondering if creatine has this effect? This is my first HST cycle using it. Also, this is my first cycle since a cut, and I'm actually eating again!!! Could this be the cause? (Not that I'm complaining.) Also, I'm doing an A/B routine with one lift per muscle group instead of two lifts which I had previously been doing. (that is, bench one day, dips another, instead of both every workout). Maybe all three of these factors are contributing to this perceived strength that I have?
