Missed training

Missed training -happens to us all

Around the holidays it's very hard to keep on top of training. Even professional athletes find this period complicated. Generally, not over eating and maintaining some quality work is sufficient to make sure the Christmas holidays don't impact your performance negatively. Also, don't take too many consecutive days off. De-training happens very, very quickly and can begin after even three days without training.


Hence if you must miss training follow these guidelines:

  • The turbo is you friend, if you have quality work to do (anything anaerobic, anaerobic glycolitic, or near threshold) skip the volume and do it on the turbo.
  • Avoid taking more than two consecutive days off training.
  • Cut endurance work before higher intensity work.
  • Keep as close as possible to your normal schedule; sleep times, meal times.
  • Avoid over eating, avoid sweets.
  • Don't do compensatory training.
