This week I have been asked several times about the best way to schedule your weekly training. When talking about your training regime my way of thinking to help build this muscle of commitment and consistency is simple. It goes like this: Monday is always the best day to train and there is simple logic to this - "Monday Matters". You are always better off getting to Monday's session before work/life gets in the way during the week and it leaves you 4 days to get in two more sessions giving you your 3 for the week. However, if you try and start your week on a Tuesday and something happens then suddenly you have reached Wednesday and you haven't trained since Friday of the previous week - 4 days without any training - suddenly it's a mad rush to get your 3 sessions in.
You never really want to give your body any more than two days off in a row so an "ideal" week would be to train on Mon, Tues, Thurs and Fri with Sat as an extra option and Sun off or Mon, Wed, Thurs and Fri with Sat as an extra option and Sun off - if you train 3 days a week then Mon, Wed and Fri are good or Tues, Thurs and Fri.... There are so many ways to play with your training week but it's so important to remember our training weeks are designed for you to be able to hit the sessions.
Overall consistency is key - these are just my thoughts, I'm only here to help you get the most out of your training. But you are always the expert in yourself. You know how your body is responding to the training so always listen to it. Our FEAT trainers are here to help guide though, so if you have questions, never hesitate to ask!!!
So in summary - GET TO MONDAYS SESSION and AVOID TAKING MORE THAN TWO DAYS OFF IN A ROW - try this for a few weeks and let's see how you feel/where you're at.
