  • 2 Questions!

    1) For this post-workout stretch:

    http://darebee.com/workouts/basic-stretching.html

    what does the "Extra Credit 30 seconds between sets" mean? Is that a typo?

    2) When a DAREBEE workout says, for example, "30 seconds jumping jacks" and then "30 seconds crunches" does that time include the "transfer time" or the time that it takes to get into position? Should I set a "buffer" time between timed exercises or does the "tranfer" time count as part of the time?

    Thank you!

    1.) Yes since there are no sets, it seems to be a typo. It may have meant to say hold for 30 seconds each stretch.
    2.) It depends. If it's a HIIT workout you just move seamlessly from one move to the next the clock never stopping. If it's within a workout that has other moves that have a specific number of reps, then that would mean the 30 seconds would be actively doing the jumping jacks or crunches.

    If you have questions on a specific workout you can always post and ask questions or do a search and see if it's been asked before alternatively.

      I went ahead and removed the EC - it is a bug. Thank you for reporting it!

        What about for this post-workout stretch: http://darebee.com/workouts/quick-warmup-workout.html or this warm-up http://darebee.com/workouts/quick-warmup-workout.html ?

        Do you know if I should have buffer times in between each exercise for these or just let the clock roll (since they're not H.I.I.T.)?

          hi joeythewhale when we design our circuits we take the transition time into account so no, you don't have to adjust anything (let the clock roll, yes). We expect you to lose a few seconds here and there. I hope this helps!

            I count to 20 each time i switch those warm up exercises, or set a timer and change every 20 seconds.
