    Issue with the 30 days of change program

    Hello,
    I'm a new member of Darebee and i just started the 30days of change program. Yesterday i started the challenge on beginner, iv done one set of lunges, squats & slow climbers but when i tried to get into the second set my body couldn't let me do it, i was totally paralyzed , my legs were shaking i struggled to sit which was kind of funny to be honest so i couldn't move forward with the program. I thought that this issue would be gone today but its still occur what do you think i should do? I don't know if i did the exercises the wrong way; if i didn't stretch myself enough or if i need more rest as i didn't exercise for about 2 years. The only thing i feel i can do today is cardio but this is not part of day 2.
    Thanks.

    Hello,

    from my own experience I think that a difficulty 3 program may be to much if you did not exercise for 2 years, especially if you are no longer in your twenties... (If I interpret your username correctly I guess you are slightly over 18?)

    After trying a few programs without much success I finally started with foundation light and did "regular" foundation after this. I'm currently redoing foundation (on Lv. 2 this time) and it still is challenging at times.
    Just my 2 cents from a 50 y.o. guy,

    br,

      Hello Tom,
      I am 24, i think that i'm going to follow your route. Start small and then progressively add a new layer of difficulty. I actually didn't noticed that there was easier plans on the site so its good to know. Thanks

          In France each region has a number and it is common thing to add it to a username

            Yeah, seems like your body did just riot against your efforts and basically saying "lol no!" after two years of doing no exercise at all, sort of natural counteract at the beginning...😩
            I doubt, that you did the exercises wrong, there isn't much to do wrong, but you can always look them up in the video exercise library to make sure.

            Start it slow, don't be disappointed, your body needs time to adapt, just keep going and slowly adding more. Many of us been there, where you're now.


            Also welcome to the Hive and have fun!

              Hi EricCartman76!

              30 days of change has a difficulty rating of 3 - so even if it's labelled as "suitable for beginners", it's really not supposed to be a walk in the park. There can be many reasons for your leg cramps (insufficient hydration and/or warming up can also play a part), but as tomtom42 and Passionate Mind rightly said, the wisest route at this point is probably to help your body get used to exercising again by choosing an easier program for now. You can always come back to 30 days of change later.

              As a rule, beginners (or people who haven't exercised in a while) are advised to start with the Foundation program. It'll help you build enough strength and endurance to be able to tackle more difficult things.

              And welcome to the Hive! Don't hesitate if you have more questions.

                EricCartman76 ... welcome to The Hive, the social side of DareBee.
                One thing many guys, newcomers to exercise, have in common is overconfidence.
                They can't believe they let things slip that badly and figure they can tough the hard parts out.
                Then they quit when the pain (DOMS) keeps coming and it all just gets harder.
                The Foundation Program mentioned above is an easier, balanced, program designed (in part) to ease such bodies into the routine and limit the pain involved.
                Get that out of the way and you CAN tough out the other Programs you try. Though they may still hurt a bit.

                    If the pain is muscle soreness, you can keep exercising doing the Foundation/Light program as long as psychologically possible. If it is pain from injury, then total rest is better.
