    IRONBORN Cycle

    Hey, is it a good idea to do exclusively IRONBORN a lot of times in a row? (with progressive overload, ofc)
    Or would you say that it's too repetitive?

    andrew2410 ... it is not a particularly good idea to do the same routine of anything "a lot of times in a row". Still, it is a Program and designed to avoid such repetition. You should be OK if you start out 'light' then use 'progressive overload' to increase the stress on your muscles. A few times.
    It might well be better, though, if you switched out to another Strength Program, such as the 30 Days of Strength Program, in between iterations of IRONBORN. There are several to choose from, allowing you to stay even more flexible.
    Enjoy your journey.

      I thing it is good to change your workouts after 4-6 weeks.
      If you have dumbbells,the site has some workouts,you may try even the sanbag workouts converting them as I did.
      Maybe you can do again the ironborn after some months

        Oh thank you, that's exactly what I needed. So, I can do it, though it's not recommended. Got it

          And, yeah.
          But, to be clear: if you do it more than twice in a row, the Program will start to lose its effectiveness. Take that break and you will continue to improve. Take a break with a different "Strength Program" and you should avoid losing any of what you built earlier.

              That's not necessarily true. The human body has the ability to adapt to anything. So if you repeat something often enough it will change in order to take on the given task more effectively. That's why you should change up your training routine every once in a while or make it more diverse in the first place.
              BUT - andrew2410 specifically stated that he will up the weight every iteration (at least that's what I understood, correct me if I'm wrong). In that case you do change the task by basically telling your body "ok, you've adapted to this routine with this weight, fine. Now try that routine with MORE weight". This is still a new stimulus and your body will have to adapt yet again.

              So it's not a bad idea to redo the program if you change up the weight.
