don't miss key workouts. Ever.
solid advice from Joe Friel.
-Consistency is the single most important aspect of training.
-It’s more important than long or intense workouts.
-You’ll improve faster by working out frequently and regularly rather than by doing hard workouts with lots of days off in between. This comes down to moderation and infrequent attempts to find your limits.
-Pushing yourself to the edge frequently leads to soreness, illness, injury, burnout, and overtraining. These will cause you to miss workouts and lose fitness.
-You gain fitness at a much slower rate than you lose it. But, let’s face it, you will miss a workout on occasion due to things you have little or no control over—weather, work, family activities and other responsibilities. When these happen you need to do some workout rescheduling.
-Try not to miss any of the key workouts on your schedule.
