I'm just curious about people's workouts and what they do when they miss one.
I've started doing splits 4 days a week and I'm finding it a struggle when I miss a day.
I know I'm setting myself up for a shootdown here, but workouts get missed due to kids getting up sometimes as early as 3am, so mornings are shot and evenings can get messed up by wife's commitments or her work or my work. I'm not throwing excuses, I'm just trying to find a solution.
When I was doing my full body workouts, I found I could drop a day, then pick it up again the following day with no problem but it seems much harder with splits.
My reasons aside, I'm sure everyone misses the occasional workout, so my question is whether you just drop that day and move on or try an 'pick up' the lost day and move the whole workout forward.
Funny thing is that I always seem to miss 'leg day'.
I wonder why? (hehe)
I'm thinking of going back to full body as I think it just suits me better. Is there any shame in that? There seems to be a train of thought that full body is for newbs and should only be used for a few months then splits should be used.
I'm thinking that if my consistency is going to suffer and I'm faced with a choice between a 'lesser' quality of 'regular' workout, then that's better than the opposite.
I'd appreciate any thoughts.
