As per HST method, you are supposed to increase weight at each
workout.
What is the best thing to do if you participated in other sports
between workouts (such as basketball, tennis) and didn't have the
capacity to keep up with the scheduled rep program? Is it better to go
light or just skip the session completely?
Thanks

Do what you can to stick to the program as outlined. You may want to be a
bit more clear on your priorities. If your other activities are making it
that difficult for you to do your workout properly you'll have to either
accept that you won't get the best results with HST or you will have to
lighten up on the other activities.

HST site says you can do 2xweek. You could try that.
