    if u arent getting stronger and are plateauing, then taking a week off might not be too bad

    u wont need the creatine during the week off

    if you're feeling sluggish then take the week off, if you can't muster up enough intensity for a good workout, rest up a lil until you can

    have you seen any gains in that 6 months?

    Definitely cycle training!! I strongly recommend, regardless of how many times a week you train, to take a week off every 8-10 weeks. I prefer 10 weeks, but 8 is OK, depending on your schedule. You will feel recharged and ready to rock like you've never felt before!! And remember, you grow when you are resting and eating, not when you are in the gym.
