Same as last week.
I feel like a new man after clearing the COVID shot symptoms. I’m ready to put in some work tomorrow.
Thought of the day: On the topic of missing days, it’s not abnormal for me to get questions about missing days, whether that be for vacation, being sick, or just but having time.
The thing is, occasionally missing a workout is not going to derail years of work.
Notice how I say years. As a new trainee, a lot of factors tie in.
One is, homeostasis is not in your favor. A new athlete might not have even built up enough adaptations to keep what they’ve gained.
If you train 3 days a week and you’ve trained for 2 months, and you miss a day. You actually retract by two to three days due to detraining everyday after you recover from your last workout. So, you’ve essentially lost 8% of your progress.
Nothing stays the same, it either grows or shrinks, same for strength.
Also, if your new, you might not have had long enough of consistent attendance to make it a habit. The first 30 and then 90 days is crucial to that.
For everyone else, missing a day won’t kill you and, if you train hard, it’s probably needed.
