I’ve always wanted to know what you do when you mess up a day in a written out routine? Let me explain. I started the Coan/Philipi deadlift routine and gave it a fairly conservative goal, i input into the equations that i have a 520 current deadlift max and in ten weeks, i want a 550. I was following everything to the letter and nailed the first three weeks, week four came around and it prescribed 495x2 and then 5 sets of 3 of 415. I only got 495x1 and slightly off the floor for the 2nd. And i also failed the last rep of the last set of 415, also, the routine only gets harder from here.
So my question is, what do i do now? I’ve always kinda wondered this for any routine ive tried where specific weights were listed for certain weeks, if you fail, what do you do? Do you do that week over? Do you throw in like a recovery week or something (these arent educated guesses, they are just random stabs) Do you just carb the hell up, down some Surge and Spike and stuff and push on hoping you make it? Any help would be appreciated.
