    Hey all,

    Just looking for a bit of advice on following specific workout plans.

    I'm a flight attendant for an airline in europe and only fly long distance flights. Routine for me is something that is not part of my life and following plans can be tricky.

    I'm trying to follow the 12 week programme thats on realjock.com.

    It is pretty specific in the 5 day workout followed by 2 days off.

    Often its not possible for me to do the 5 days straight and I have to miss a day. Cos i'm up in the air all night, or staying in a hotel with very limited gym facilities etc.

    So guess my question is, how flexible can i be with the plan without losing out on any of the gains?

    If I have to miss, say, day 3 am i better to only give myself one rest day after day 5 and keep myself to the plan or should i still give myself the full two rest days after day 5?

    If I find myself in a hotel with limited equipment that wouldnt allow me to do my scheduled back & legs on day 2 but has what I need for me to do legs (which would normally be day 3) would it matter if I swap the days around?

    Any advice appreciated.

    If you don't want to swap days, look for alternative to those exercises you would be preforming. For instance, if you're suppose to be doing sitting rows for your back, do pull ups or push ups. Instead of rope push downs for the triceps, grab a chair and do dips. Every exercise has an alternative if the equipment the hotel you're in is inadequate.
