I have a commitment on a Friday-Saturday-Sunday on the first weekend of August. Saturday is scheduled Workout #21.
My workout strategy has always been if I had to miss a specific workout for a commitment, I would just skip it and proceed with the next workout at its original scheduled date.
In the Surge Challenge what is recommended? Pickup on Workout #21 on Monday, or keep the scheduled Workout #22 on Monday?
The rationale for this would be because you always wanted squat or leg day (or whatever) to fall on a certain day of the week that gels with your other activities. For example, I don’t want to squat heavy and then have a soccer game later that day, but I have no problem doing a shoulder-heavy workout and playing soccer later.
For these workouts, I don’t see that as mattering at all. I can’t think of a reason to skip the workout and move on to keep your original schedule, unless you have another training block scheduled immediately after and need to wrap this up by a certain date.
Just one person’s opinion on pre-workout caffeine: I had taken caffeine via coffee as a pre-workout drink since the 1980’s. For the Surge Challenge I have missed taking my coffee about half of the workouts. I cannot tell a difference when taking Surge whether I get caffeine pre-workout or not. I am amped either way.
BTW, I do drink coffee every morning, usually with my 10:30am Coffee Gang, mostly as a social beverage.
This is essentially what I end up doing without real intention. I wake up, have some coffee, head to the gym and then start drinking Surge Workout Fuel; it probably ends up being about a 30-minute separation.
No doms noticed the next day post the long(er) time under tension biceps portion, also hitting calves, forearm and leg press work (that I previously have rarely focused on, or hit in isolatation). Yet to note any doms using Surge as prescribed. 10 sessions completed thus far.
