    Program progression help

    I have decided to complete all the programs darebee has starting with foundation light then foundation but what would be the best way to progress through the rest of the programs I guess I am looking for them listed by intensity any help is appreciated.

    I found the list where it says intensities but now I need help ordering them by intensity from least to most strenuous.

      There is no real ranking as they are all different in their own way. A level 3 HIIT program has a totally different approach than a strength program based on free weights of the same level. It really depends on what your own fitness level is and what your preferences are.

      Sorry I can't be more helpful, but unfortunately there is no definitive answer to your question.

        Thank you. That was kind of what i was thinking my main goal is to progress in a way that i can recover from all injuries while improving my over all health so slowly increasing from zero impact on joints to high impact over time.

          acarpenter89 - I had tried a similar approach when I joined, and it became more trouble than it was worth. The most straightforward approach would be to just start with the lowest level and then work up to the highest, but keep in mind that perceived difficulty may not match what is listed (ie, if you are really good at really enjoy something, it will come easier). It's a good goal, the more important thing is just to get started!

            acarpenter89 I had the same idea originally, starting with Foundation Light and working my way up from there. But... I knew that directly after Foundation Light I would be bored by Foundation, so I've tried Cardio Blast, a Level 2 program and I'm currently flailing a bit (maybe because I don't really enjoy cardio), so I've contemplated to quit it for the moment. Come December I might try my hand at the Ironborn program, because I really love working out with dumbbells even though it's a Level 3 program. Dunno how it'll work out, but I guess it's learning by doing.
            Foundation Light is a good starting point though, I think. It's fun, with different kinds of exercises and it's easy enough to get a good routine doing. Maybe do that first and when you're nearing the finish line look what sounds interesting to you next.

              I intend to do them all too!! My methodology is more along the lines of what do I want to work on? (abs, cardio, strength etc) and what sounds most fun! I would suggest looking through the previews of some that appeal to you. They seem to give a good sense of the difficulty - beginning days, mid way, and towards the end. If impact is something you're concerned about then maybe the cardio/hit ones should be higher up on your personal difficulty list.

              I know that I have a mental list of the ones I want to do next....but when it comes down to choosing which one I often pick something else because that's what I'm in the mood for!! I was completely set on doing Combat HIIT (I enjoy the combat workouts most) and ended up picking 30 days of Gravity!! (Which I am loving and am actually planning on repeating before Christmas since I won't have time to do a full program before the festivities and travel that will inevitably affect my training). Age of Pandora is what I started with because I liked the story concept which helped me create the habit of working out daily and that really worked for me.

                  You've got a good work for the next 33 months !!!

                  That's great, but you'll change it when you'll see your progress and want to do a bit more. What's more, some of the programs listed above can be done simultaneusly as add-on. For example, back and core or Totals Abs. About Totals and epic five, maybe you'll add too in this way.


                  It's your choice, and you've got great advices above.

                  The noob's advice (= I am) is to start with foundation (or foundation light), then strength & tone (30 Days of Gravity, Spartan Trials, or 30 Days of Strength), and then cardio/HITT. Anyway, a program like Age of Pandora would be the best choice after stablish a good foundation. It's fun and it will catch you into the regular working out.


                  Whatever you'll do, enjoy it!!!
