    Iron Born.

    Am I right in assuming you have to training every day for 30 days?
    I normally work off a 2 days on, 1 days off split, with weekends off as well. Can I continue with this or is the program designed for you to train every day?

    I finished the program yesterday and went through it without any rest days (well except one break I had to take because I was away). My muscles had enough time to recover and it is designed to train every day. So when you are able to train every day, this is most likely the most effective day.

    That said, if you are used to a schedule and are happy with it, you can stay with it. I would advise you, to try to workout every day, but this is not for every one (some need more rest time for the body, some need rest for the mind/soul). Other don't have the time. So try to train every day, but in the end the most effective schedule is the one you can stick to.

      Generally, every program on Darebee is pretty flexible. Sure, it is better to train everyday, but when you cannot, no problem.

      The progress is there. Just don't take any more than three days to train. You will lose it.

        All the programs are designed to be done on consecutive days, whether 30, 60, or 90.

          Iron Born is broken up by muscle groups so that there isn't too much cross over on consecutive days. So the specific muscle groups you do work per day will have a 3 day rest period before they come up again.

          The built in rest day is every 4 days and is ab work.
          ​​​​​​
          Best to do every day since the muscle group breaks are so long anyway that it really runs the chance of a constant soreness. Which is OK for some.

          I just finished Iron Born so that's my take.

            gjaajaa ... welcome to The Hive, the Social side of DareBee.
            As mentioned, DareBee Programs allow your muscles to recover while you are doing something else.
            Which doesn't mean you can't continue with your easier schedule, only that you don't have to.
            If you shift to a schedule of selected Workouts, your days off may be useful. Not needed with the Programs, though.

              The program is isolation based training meaning a different muscle group is hit each day independently (mostly) from other muscle groups. This means you can be training another group of muscles in the body while the ones you hit the day before are recovering and wont be targeted again for about 5 - 7 days of the program. You can stick to your current schedule but you might not see the best results you may want in terms of efficiency.

                  Another Ironborn question: I am about to start but I just realized there are no dumbbell exercises shown in the exercise library. For dumbbells like me -- ha ha ha -- I need to see pictures or a video of how to do a new exercise. Are there explanations for dumbbell exercises on the site? If not, can anyone recommend an exercise library somewhere on the web? Dumbbells for Idiots maybe?

                    Dustmouse If you dont know the exercise movements, just type it into youtube, Guaranteed you will find what your looking for.

                    Lateral Raises for instance.

                    ^That dude knows his stuff. Best Youtube trainer, hands down. Just saying.

                          And you have just joined The Hive. So, I must ask ... have you been doing the prep work to insure your body can handle the work?
                          OK ... sure ... you can do the workouts with 1KG dumbbells.
                          You can.
                          We tend to want Bees to be fit enough to take on the project they are going for - without injury.
                          Now ... you could be a ranked Ninja Warrior or a star of CrossFit and be far more than ready for this.
                          Or you could be feebler than me and not ready to do a standard pushup.
                          We don't know. Unless you tell us.
                          What have you been doing that you think you can just jump right in?

                            Hi! I have been working out before and I stopped for like two years.But tried to keep myself in the best shape possible by doing cardio and some basic bodyweight workout every now and then if my busy schedule permits. Anyway, I figured, I was way over my head thinking I could do the same stuff that I was doing two years ago..so what I did is I started 30DOC and total abs...and I must say I've never sweat like this in a very long time. I'll start with Ironborn once I done with 30DOC and total abs...hopefully by then my body has adjusted already. Thanks!

                              Just curious about this workout, using 20 lb dumbbells is too easy for the amount of reps it recommends. I want to be getting definition when doing this workout and i think the best way to do it is just by doing each rep till failure, is this a good idea?
