  • Thoughts on missing a Training Session

    Hey guys,

    I was wondering what your thoughts were on missing a training session. I'm on the Powerbuilding I template. I train M,W,F for the main workouts and TH,SAT for the GPP days. I have some stuff going on this weekend and it's looking like I'm going to possibly miss my session on Friday. I could possibly double up and do both Thursday and Friday's training today (Thursday), but being that I just trained yesterday that doesn't seem ideal from a recovery standpoint. I'm not sure I have time Saturday to make up Friday's workout so that leaves me with Sunday - which means I'd have to train back to back (Sunday and Monday) in that case. What do you recommend I do? I'm almost thinking that I should just miss the 3rd workout this week and repeat this week (I'm on week 9 of the template). Thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Anthony

    My thoughts:

    Don't miss the training session, do what you can to get the work in. Sometimes it means back-to-back days, and if time is an issue, dropping third exercises or converting to myo-reps instead of missing the whole session. Also, you're not really doubling up like if you had to do two main workouts on the same day. You'll be fine with Th or Sun.

    Thursday: Use RPE and adjust working sets accordingly. Do GPP after, not at all, tomorrow morning, or on Sunday.
    Sunday: Consider shifting week 10 main workouts to Tu/Th/Sat.

      Thank you for the feedback! Those options make sense to me. I think I'm going to try to get in the workout today so that in case I can't make it on Sunday I won't miss the training completely. I'll definitely have to adjust my training loads but I guess that's the idea behind the RPE methodology

    I would personally do Friday's workout on Thursday and either try to fit in the GPP after or any other day.

    I wouldn't worry too much about not being recovered - keep in mind the 4 day templates have you doing full body workouts on consecutive days (e.g. Mon/Tue and Wed/Thu). I've had to do 3-4 consecutive days of lifting before due to other priorities - not ideal, but better than not training
