Will occasionally missing a workout affect my strength and endurance?

Jul 8, 2014

Occasionally missing a day of training should not affect your strength or endurance too much. In some cases, a day or two of can be refreshing for your body and make your session even better the next time. However, if 'occasionally' becomes a little more frequent, you may notice that you either plateau or lose some strength or endurance. –Kristen

Occasionally missing a workout will not affect your endurance or strength. While missing a session from time to time may slow progress in some areas as long as you stick to your schedule the majority of the time you will be all set. Like nutrition, workout consistency is a long journey. Don't beat yourself up over missing one workout just like you shouldn't beat yourself up over a bad nutritional choice. Get back to your routine right after the missed session and you will stay on the right path!- Keith

Occasionally missing a workout session will not affect your endurance or strength. After 7-10 days you will lose some muscle power and endurance but not enough to totally derail your goals.With a few specific strength or endurance workouts, you will be back before you know it. If you missed more than two weeks then you will have a little bit more to make up. -Sara
