    Can you do more programs together?

    Hello there everyone, I was wondering if I can combine “30 days of gravity” with “total abs” and them together everyday. I’m gonna ask this question because every program it’s studied to work on different exercises everyday, so different muscles (I presume) to not stress them but while scrolling on pdf I saw that in “30 days of gravity” there are exercises focused on abs which are already in the other program and so I got curious if I can do them together or there’s a better option to train abs and the chest.
    (I want to put beforehand that I’m a beginner, like I haven’t do any sort of exercises for a very long time)
    And also, sorry for the bad English

    Hello and welcome to the Hive, Asue !

    For beginners, most will recommend the Foundation program and I would second that.
    It's easy to be really motivated to work out hard every day... in the beginning, until the soreness kicks in!

    Now, most programs here are designed in a way that you get a pretty balanced training. I don't see that doing several programs together will get you more benefits.

    The exceptions are the programs marked as "addon" programs, e.g. Total Abs and Back & Core, and challenges. You can perfectly do those on top of other programs.

    Happy training!

      I think it's fine to combine the two because Total Abs is an add-on program, but since you mention that you are a beginner, it might be too much for you.

      The Gravity program works your chest because of the push ups, and it's to failure! You're supposed to get really exhausted with it. I am not sure if this is a good thing to do, but you can do wide grip push ups instead of the classic version (the one you are supposed to do) if you want to focus on the chest.

      I wouldn't worry about abs because there are those exercises in the program, just not as frequent as Total Abs. There is another program called Back and Core which targets your abs, too, but it's a lighter program. You can also check out the challenges, some of which are abs related. Or you might consider doing just Total Abs but with a push up challenge, if chest and abs are all that you want to do.

        Asue ... yes you can. But, I'd start a bit slower.
        Once you happily get through your first program solo - and the Foundation Program is a great place to start - then you can start mixing them up.
        If you are feeling good along the way, there's always DDs, WotDs, special Weeks and more that you can throw into the mix.

        If you start out gung-ho andget a major case of DOMS on the first day, we might lose you. Don't want that!

            Ok, thank you all for your answers and support
            One last thing: if I want to do the Foundation and add Total ABS, how do I train daily? Let me explain: do i do day 1 from Foundation (so first set, rest, second set, rest and finally third set) and after a little rest keep going with day Total ABS or to save time it's possible to do first set from Foundation and first from Total ABS and then rest and keep going like this for the other 2 sets?

              You should finish one program, all the sets of the day, before you proceed to the next program. You can do the two programs in either order and any time of the day, but ideally you should do a program at the same point of time every day. For example if you do Total Abs at 7pm today, tomorrow you should try to do it at 7pm as well.

                  Asue ... have you considered doing a Program - Foundation - and a Challenge? Say the 2-Minute Abs Challenge? Similar results.
