Should I stick to the same time of day for lifting? Or would it matter if I did it Monday night and then again on Thursday morning? Is this a sufficient amount of rest time between the two?

Do you mean Tuesday morning?

Monday night and Thursday morning are plenty of hours of rest if that's what you meant.

My general advice is this...until a lifter has developed a good habit of not missing workouts, they should train at whatever time of day they are least likely to miss workouts.

Speaking personally, I am concerned with rest intervals, of course, but what time the scheduled workout occurs, I do not fuss over it. Being a General Manager/Sales and Marketing CEO, my shift hours can vary dependent upon a variety of business factors. But, generally, when their is stability and no turnover issues, I workout in the AM. Sometimes I have to work during the day (7a to 3p) and then turnaround and work the same day 11p to 7A. If this happens, I adjust my sleep pattern, and workout in the evening before work. Knowing these sort of issues can happen ahead of time, I plan for them advance. Sure sleep pattern gets messed up, and sometimes the scheduled workout gets pushed +12 hours ahead (but its the same day). The bottom line is when life throws you some screws, you have to have the screw driver in hand. I want what I want, and that is that.

would rather miss my normal workout time than skip a training session.
