    Help?

    Hey, looking for some help. Trying to figure out 2-3 programs that I can do all at once, maybe different times throughout the day. Trying to get active again, build some muscle while I’m doing it, and just look lean overall.

    What is your current fitness level? Its hard for us to reccommend programms without knowing anything about you.

    Besides that, there are a couple of programms designed as addons (back & core for example) to other workouts. Most of the programms are designed to do one workout per day. Programms for Starters are Foundation light or Foundation.

      Try doing https://darebee.com/fitness-test.html to check how much you can take.

      If you're in a intermediate (level), you can try doing two program days at once everyday. i've done it before and it's not extremely hard, but it's challenging if you perfomr them at level III. You should aim to perform one in a harder set and the other in a lighter set.... on their most challenging versions, workouts might take up to 30 minutes to complete. The suggested total time working out would be one hour per session and I would not recommend doing two workouts daily... except if you're already fit and they are very different in nature (strenght/cardio).

      But, if you're in a beginner level, Foundation (or Foundation Light for a real begginer) is the most adequate way. It will put you in a place where you can start doing harder things and also test your discipline (working out at home alone? most people quit in a week).

        Do you have access to dumbells, and a space where you can jump/stomp w put pissing off downstairs neighbors? Do you have some base level of fittness already?

        Epic 5 as warmup
        Iron Born as your main workout for muscle building
        and either Back and Core or Total Abs depending on how long you want your workouts (total abs ones are longer)
        If you are reasonably fit you could prolly add
        cardio blast as well, as it is an easier program

        This is a lot of working out but you can't really hurt yourself with it unless you pick up innapropraitely heavy dumbbells w bad form.


        BUT, you could also just do one harder program and possibly get better progress bc they are designed w active rests and progressive overload etc. Or do a cardio program and some standard barbell protocol like 5x5 if you have gym access.

            Why do you wanna do so much and not one harder program once a day? If you wanna add sth., then "Total abs" and "Back and Core" are both good and doable. Even both at once!

              Okay, I've definitely done things like this before. If I'm at a time when I'm doing multiple things per day, my workout will include the daily dare, a day of a challenge if I'm doing one, and a level III workout (usually from a program). Sometimes I'll find another supplementary workout from the database if the program day doesn't hit something I think my body needs that day. Or you can do two days of a program. You can definitely make up your own workout days on DAREBEE; there's a lot of variety and options to choose from. Different programs take different amounts of time to complete (for example, Hero's Journey days take closer to an hour at level III, while many others are about twenty to thirty minutes). Sometimes I'll have two programs going at once and trade off on days (or do both per day, but usually only if one doesn't really challenge me). All that just to give you some other ideas. I see you've done some running. Are you wanting to continue with that cardio, add some strength/tone, and/or work on other areas of your body? Sorry I don't have many specific program recommendations for you right now, but we bees can probably help you out with some more information. : ) Nice username, by the way. The program chart is usually pretty helpful, as it shows the difficulty level and targets of them.

                So, I don’t really plan on keeping my cardio as much, maybe like a mile warmup or an 800 meter warmup but that’s about it as far as the cardio, and I’m mainly looking to bulk-up because I’m really thin from all the running. I ran pretty much 4 years straight and then prior to that a gap of a year and another year of running.

                  Have a look at 'rins idea, or strength protocol instead of ironborn, if you are used to bodyweight exercises.
                  if not, have a look at 30DoGravity/Strength or Spartan trials. These 3 will definitely get you ready for the bulk. If you haven't done much strength work, there will be some muscle growth, too. The ultimate starter, is Foundation, just to get used to daily workouts.
                  Have fun.

                    Calling out for Noen to tell you about nutrition.

                      Hm, not much to say here about nutrition except that muscle building will need 1.2 - 1.6 g of protein per kg of your goal weight per day. Eat enough to gain weight, but keep the weight gain slow (0.5 - 1 kg of weight gain per month) and you're good to go.

                      Don't be afraid to keep running. While very intense speed or long distance running can somewhat hinder muscle building, moderate running is a beautiful addition to any strength program.

                        Alright, thanks everyone, the combat workouts wouldn’t really help with anything would they?

                            That will either take very advanced calisthenics or weights. Bodyweight programs will get you more muscular, but after a certain points weights will become a ncessity.

                            Keep in mind that looking good is literally his day job. He has 40 hours a week to dedicate to his body when he isn't filming.
