In a perfect world we would all be able to sleep, eat and train properly at all times. Unfortunately, I sometimes do not live in that. That aside, my question is when you have missed a few days of training due to other obligations what do you do?

Do you hit the missed bodyparts with a couple sets and resume schedule, or do you just miss those and continue with your regular routine? (ie do an HST kinda workout until you can resume your regular schedule or skip all together and just hit whats next):confused:

I hardly "have to" miss any days. But if I do, I usually just pick up where I left off.

If you're off for a "prolonged" time period, you need to ease back into it - so you don't get overzealous and get an injury.

I work out 5 on 2 off (weekends). If I miss Mon. and Tues, I'll hit 2 bodyparts a day to make up for the days lost. By doing this, I don't really miss any training in the long run. The workouts might not be as intense as they should be, but the important thing is that the muscles are worked.

Thats what I have been doing. I was just wondering if anyone seemed to lose much if they cut down on the sets but at least trained the muscle instead of skipping and hitting it the following week.

Few thoughts

ME,

If you've missed so much that you could train any body part (like 10days plus), then I would hit your weak spots first and continue on your schedule. Sounds like you've got a set weekly schedule(?) You might consider a 3,4 or 5 day split that has you in the gyme the same amt. of time for each workout. That way you can simply rotate through your workouts and start up where you left off.

I always have things that will make a workout convenient (don't worry, I'm not gonna say that you need to just go do it), but I see these in advance and plan / adjust my week accordingly. Where there's a will there's a way.

The easiest way (which I've done for years) is to workout in the morning before work. Nobody's gonna hold you over for a meeting or add some work to your day at 6am (unless you're a firefighter or work a night shift). Most gyms are open early, so if you're out of town, you'll still be able to go to the gym (assuming there is one nearby).

-Randy

Thanks guys. Apprec. the responses. Im thinking like you are homonucleus. I just get so pissed when Im on a roll and then have to shortcut my workouts because Im burned/worn out. I feel like Im starting over every week. Oh well, thats life.

Bro...I know what you mean. The last six months have been that way for me and I always just pick back up where I left off. If I miss a couple of days, I don't stress about it. My theory is that a couple extra days of rest every now and then will only help you grow. I have certainly not lost anything when this happens! Take care.

I'm pulling this one out of the archives for sure. I know this is a topic that gets bantered about quite a bit, and I too have been one for bantering. But I want to ask one more thing about this. For those that are early trainers, how many are natural? I only ask, because I can see how time of day wouldn't matter to an assisted athlete. But seeing as how cortisol is highest in the AM and falls through the day, I worry that AM lifting for a natural trainer might be doing more harm than good.

Is the pre-workout meal enough to keep cortisol in check?
