Sticky Thread Sticky: "Fierce 5" Novice Routine

FIERCE 5 I decided to design "Fierce 5" because I wasn't completely satisfied with any of the other novice programs that are so popular. In my opinion they all had a flaw or two (slow progression, high volume, low enough volume people lose interest and most of them lack what I’d consider proper...

Can I hit chest again tomorrow?

Got a call and had to leave the gym before finishing today. All I managed to do was 2 sets of 3 reps on bench. I didn't really push it to the limit either. Can I do what I was supposed to do today, tomorrow? Or should I just skip it and do leg day instead?
