    too many days without break?

    I am on BGB, and i am finding it a little hard to find 4 days in the week to lift. I get out of school at 1:15 and go to work at 2:00 3-4 days a week. So my question is when i have days off of work i usually always lift. (and weekends before work)

    ok I realized I just ranted i'll get to the question

    Is it bad to lift 3 days in a row without a break? If i did do that, i would have a 3-4 day break. I guess i could go in the morning before school, but that would be hard and if i could avoid it i would like to.

    Yes, it can be hard finding the time to go with a consistent 4 day split.

    Personally I sometimes miss a day and make up for it with 3 days in a row. It kind of screws up your whole routine when you miss a single day.

    I would say go for it. Especially if youre considering taking 3 days off afterwards. Though I cant comment on whether this would be overtraining or not since there is quite a bit of volume on that routine. Perhaps someone with more wisdom will answer.

    Id say it beats skipping a workout or modifying your entire split just to take advantage of your "normal" days off.
