Programming Points:
Many of you may have noticed that I ran programs 1 and 2, Monday through Thursday this week with 3 days off this weekend.  I want to to put out there, that the only reason I have done so is because those are the days that students at LCI have access to the fitness center.  If I were prescribing program 1 and program 2 to individuals who have access to a gym or training facility during the week and weekend,I would put a rest day on Day 3 and have 2 days rest over the weekend.  That would have program 2 individuals train Mon, Tues, Wed off, Thurs, Fri, Saturday and Sunday off.   This will not always be the case, but is for the format of this 3 weeks.

Those who are following program 3 and program 4, follow as written or as your body feels okay to train.  If your body is asking for a day off, don't be afraid to listen.  Bodies are not built over night and definitely not  built if you spend time injured.  Trust me.....I know on the injuries :)

With the above said, if you have trained Mon- thurs, take the 3 days off.  If you are following p3, p4 then see below.
