If you find yourself only having 3 or 4 days to train per week you DO have options from which to choose to reduce your training volume with Persist.

OPTION 1: Check out our Pump lift/condition full body tracks, these are 3x a week. The Pillars track is a great option for those who want to train four days a week and do not want the stress of paring down other tracks (Options 2 & 3).

OPTION 2: Choose three or four workouts per week and rotate which days you choose evenly. This ensures you get a dose of everything your chosen Persist track has to offer. Persist programming will hit different movement patterns throughout the week so choosing a mix of days, as well as keeping an eye on what movement patterns you’re training, will ensure sufficient variety.

For example, if you did a bunch of horizontal and vertical pressing in your last training session, choose a session that focuses on the lower body such as squatting, hinging, et cetera.

OPTION 3: Choose the days that target the skills and/or muscle splits you are looking to focus on and keep those days the same each week. Be sure to note that muscle splits and skills days remain the same week to week within each 6-week cycle.

By having a specific goal in mind, picking and keeping the same skills and/or muscle splits week to week, you can ensure maximal results.
