So I have been following this program and I am currently in week 5. Great program. Anyway, I trained on Sunday this week. Couldn’t get to sleep for whatever reason on Sunday night and again on Monday night. I got maybe 3 hours sleep at best each night. I also had to start working a little overtime this week so I am a bit worn out. Having the first session out of the way on Sunday, I thought my best option was to go in on Tuesday, do my deads and military using standard 5/3/1 sets and reps so I did 70/80/90% all for 3 reps only. No assistance work. I was supposed to do the volume work for squats and bench last night but life got in the way and I am super busy this evening with stuff that has to be done so no training tonight.
Given that the first part of the program is for 6 weeks then a deload before going into the second part of the workout, how should I handle this? Should I…
- Do next week as week 5 and go on from there?
- Do next week as week 6 and go on?
- Do the deload next week and start the second part the following week?
- Since this week ended up being a sort of deload in that I just did what I
felt I should do to handle the circumstances, should I start next week as
the second part of the program?
