    Missed day of BGB

    Hi, I missed my workout yesterday, Workout A from Builts BGB routine. I have missed a workout before also. What bothers me most about this particular workout is the fact it included chest and this is my weakest area.

    Should I include yesterdays workout with my squats and curls today? or should I do yesterdays workout today and todays workout tomorrow?

    cheers

    First, dont stress out over it. This is prob worse than missing a workout. I would yesterdays workout today and todays workout tomorrow.

    Ok thanks for that, I guess I was thinking about it too much, When I can't eat because of work it really grates my nerves because I feel like its preventing progress.

    I need to relax sometimes, I have only been training 6 weeks and I often forget that and think damn it hurry up muscles, where are you

    honestly its not that big of a deal. if you really feel you need to do your chest day tomrmow then do it. if not then i would just add in an extra few sets of bench at the end of your workout tomrmow.

    Just got back from Gym and set myself a new PR on bench

    132-lbs/60-kgs

    Have always done chest on Monday evening after work and the place is rammed like a theme park with queues for the bench (but strangely enough not for the squat rack), today was like a ghost town.

    I have work in 30 minutes

    Cheers

    I know it is upsetting but in the long run just like one workout won't make you big it won't make you small either. So I would not sweat it.

    Mondays, in my experience, are the busiest days at the gym. If at all possible, I take Monday as a rest day.

    Don't ask for a lighter load. Ask for a stronger back.

    Whenever I miss a day I usually try to find a way to get in a few sets of obliques and scissor kicks as a punishment...or I'll eat broken glass. Choose one!

    mmmm broken glass, my favorite

    Whilst on the subject of missing sessions, work was an absolute female dog and I finished late again. I am far too shattered to make the journey right now.

    I have two days off now though, I get a chance to kick some ass and I'll shift my workouts by another day.
