    Archex I've done the old one and honestly haven't looked at the new one which leads to my question. Do you really think that the old one is easier than the new one? I might have to go back and hit this one up again.

      J3ster what you said about how YOUR motivation works resonates with me- I get demotivated by something "too hard", instead of motivated. (Within certain parameters, just barely too hard can still be fun.) (So like, spartan trials looks like fun but....Im not touching it till I can do pullups.) And I can see how you land in the position you do based on that argument. I think that this sort of motivation is a minority position, tho, most ppl react well to hard goals, so scaling things back works for them.

        I am doing Spartan trials. I am fine with the level, although I need extra rest times. AND I canĀ“t do any pull-ups- so what- I am doing other pull exercises and it reminds me to do them at all.

        Also challenges- if someone is not able to do full splits after the 30 day challenge so what- that person did a challenge to improve that skill. He/she can try again and improve again.

          LOL, we shall have to invent "Spanking Friday" just for you J3ster A little more seriously we're getting more and more hard evidence on how what works for one person doesn't necessarily work for someone else. It makes it hard to dictate "best" anything. Just like you're getting to know what really works for you and apply it to your benefit so does everyone else will need to discover their own special blend as they get further along their fitness journey. I grew up in the 70s and fitness used to be "easy". Now we are finally discovering just how hard getting it just right really is.

            Ulli I realize I'm in a minority here. I have a tendency to be absurdly hard on myself, tho, so it's best if i avoid things I can't do "properly", lest my "failure" becomes a stick for me to beat myself with. Your outlook is prolly healthier.

                Hi, I'm new here, I'm not sure if that question was answered somewhere else but with the new version of strength protocol I don't see the rest time between exercices anywhere...it should be added on the program descritpion.
                Also, I'm french and I was wondering what does the "Done with EC" means!

                Thanks

                  There are no rest times between the exercises, you have rest between sets of the same exercise. As the different exercises should work different muscles you shouldn't need the rest, but if you feel like you absolutely have to, you can take a break until you can go on.

                  "Done with EC" means Done with extracredit, an added condition to make a workout harder. Mostly used for the Daily Dare-Thread, in which the poster wishes to express that he did the Daily Dare successfully and even while fulfilling the extracondition.

                    Erm... Sorry, Artemi, but this doesn't apply to Strength Protocol. With standard Darebee workouts, you would be right, but with SP, since every day targets the same muscle groups, you normally get 20 seconds between sets, and 2 minutes between exercises.

                    paladyr , you're right, the rest time between exercises doesn't appear in version 2.0 of Strength Protocol. I guess this is an oversight neilarey will fix when she can find the time.

                    And welcome to the Hive!

                        Ec means extra credit . Rest time is 20 seconds
