    I had wayyy to much work to do today so I won't be able to make it to the gym. I work out Monday to Friday so I'm going tommorrow. Since I work out different muscles every day, can I just do todays workout tommorrow in addition to the workout that I was scheduled to do that day? I really don't want to get off track. Heres my workout for today:

    Bent Rows (3-4 warm-ups) 2 x 4-6
    V-bar Pull downs 2 x 4-6
    Weighted Pull-ups 2 x 4-6
    Straight-bar Cable Rows 1 x 4-6
    Dead Lift (2-3 warm-ups) 2 x 4-6
    Barbell Shrugs 1 x 4-6

    Heres my workout for tommorrow:

    Seated Dumbbell Press (4 warm-ups) 3 x 4-6
    Seated Military Press 2 x 4-6
    Side Laterals (1 acclimation set) 2 x 4-6
    Lying Extensions (1-2 warm-up sets) 2 x 4-6
    Pushdowns 2 x 4-6
    Seated Overhead Dumbbell Extensions 1 x 4-6

    Can I do all that tommorow?

    Sure? Why not?

    And do your compound movements(Squat/Bench/Dead) FIRST.

    Can't you just skip it and be one day off for the rest of the week? You'd have to go saturday, but it's better than nothing.

    If you missed it, wouldn't you already have skipped it?

    I meant skipped the day of the week, not the workout. You just shift everything over a day. I've tried to make up like you are thinking and my workout suffered because I was beat by the time I was starting the second days stuff.

    if i had to skip a day, i'd skip it and not look back. not only is the routine demanding, but it has that ABAB set up so it jsut fucks everything up.

    Dont make your rotine too concrete. Its alright if you move one day to the other to compensate for a missed day.
