    So I'm going to Vegas from Friday thru Monday. I've been really dedicated with the gym for the past 2 months and I don't want this to screw things up. Its for a bachelor party, so going wasn't really an option, as I'm in the wedding.

    Anyway, should I pack some protein in my bag and try and work out at the hotel gym (Caesar's) or do I just relax and enjoy the time off?
    The kicker is that I'm only back in town for 4 days, and then I'm off to San Francisco for another 4 days.

    I'm only 2 months into my workout, but I'm too the point where I don't feel good if I don't make it to the gym.

    Thats what I was thinking. I'll be with the GF in Cisco, so I won't be getting crazy and I'll have time to get a decent workout at the hotel gym.

    Unless you're training for a competition, live your life

    :werd: I quit drinking for nearly 6 months to train and I missed a lot of good times with my friends and girlfriend because of it.

    However, then i started drinking huge amounts and my gains sorta stalled dead, so now I'm drinking maybe once a month. Gotta find a medium but not slack at the same time!

    FYI, the gym at Ceasers is not free... Enjoy yourself, bring some protein or BCAA's so you can minimize muscle loss.

    Nope, think it was 20 bucks a day, perhaps 15.

    . Your body needs a break every now and then as it is. It's good to take a few days off even though we may not want to.

    Do what you want.

    Being in college this comes up a lot ( to get shitfaced or take it easy ). I have a few mixed drinks (rum and diet coke or low carb monster), so the calories aren't a killer but still gets the job done.

    It makes me feel better that you guys approve of taking the time off. :rofl:

    No really it does.

    I'm training really hard this week with a buddy, so hopefully I make enough gains to limit the losses.

    You're the only judge of your results.

    Competitors have outside judges, and don't give a fuck if you drink or not -- just how you perform.

    Keep living life, you know.

    I'm going to Vegas this weekend to buy an M3, and I'm going to drink my fucking face off like I do every other goddamn time I'm in that city.

    I'll be back in the gym monday.

    it's just 4 days



    but if Caesers has a great gym and you have a few free hours, I don't see why not :dunno: just pack some basketball shorts and t-shirt or whatever you normally wear to the gym, but don't get anxious to work out if it means you'll have to miss out on the fun.

    True. If it costs money like someone said, then I'm out, but if its free, I think I'll get up and at least get some cardio in. I shouldn't miss out on anything since everyone will be hungover at the pool
