Where to start if I miss a workout?

If you miss a day or a couple days, just get back on the wagon as if nothing  happened, right with the workout you missed. If you miss a workout for a  longer period of time, say a week, then you have a decision to make. You may just start the program over again, or get right back to the place you were when you stopped.

If you miss to many workouts, follow your schedule.miss a workout

Ultimately, once you get back into the swing of things, what you really want to do is keep motivated. That being said, following the schedule in the program is the best way to get the full benefit from the program. If you miss a workout for a few days, it’s fine to get going where you left off, but if it has been weeks, you will more than likely have lost most of your fitness gains, so it would be better to start from the beginning in order to get the most gains and to avoid getting hurt.

If starting over will devastate you, start from where you left off, but if you have been off for more than 5 to 6 days, start off slow or you will risk the chance of getting so sore you can hardly move. If you miss a workout for to long maybe start with your programs recovery week if there is one.
