The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Missed WO ???

    Hello all,

    So, I missed my workout last night due to some very extenuating circumstances at work. I have been following my nine week program very closely, with the goal of finishing it up two days before a one week business trip.

    This was a goal that I set for myself, and has really kept me on an honest course to achieve it. I might even recommend to someone starting out that they do the same. I’ve never really had a set program before (a routine, yes, but not a “schedule”), and I find that it really helps to “see” where you will be in a month’s time.

    My question is, if I do my missed workout tonight (Squats, OHP’s, & Bent Rows), will tomorrow’s workout (Squats, Bench Press, Dead Lift) need to be altered? Does anyone have any suggestions? Maybe move tomorrow’s workout to Saturday in an effort to provide at least one day of rest between training sessions?

    Any and all thoughts, comments, and suggestions are, as always, most greatly appreciated.

    No, just continue it when you can. It's no biggie. You're fine.

    I wouldn't make missing workouts a habit, though.

    Yeah, do like you said and move the Fri. workout to Sat. You need a day rest between the squat sessions.

    It is currently a fad, at this writing, for boys to think they need a "six pack", although most of them don't have an ice chest to put it in.

    Quit because you probably lost 30lbs on each major lift..(joke) Seriously, it happens to everyone. It comes down to personal choice. You could just call it a rest week for those lift, move your workout 1 day back or do a full body. Eat, try to sleep, work hard and progression will always be near.

    Make up for it, spread the rest of your week out so you get the same rest periods and do your missed workout next. Or give up.
