    Repeating Programs

    Hi there!

    I've just finished both of the 30 Days of HIIT Advanced and Full Circuit programs, and I've really enjoyed them. I'm wondering which program to do next. Is there a point to repeating programs I've already completed? I'd imagine that they wouldn't be as demanding now that I'm used to them, so maybe I should switch it up? What if I run out of programs to do? Has anyone repeated programs that they've already done before? I'd also welcome any program or workout suggestions!

    Hi! Welcome to the Hive!

    I haven't repeated any programs (that sounds terribly boring to me), but I know TheLibrarian has done IronBorn several times, so he may have something useful to say about repeating programs.

    On the other hand, I have been doing Darebee workouts for over three years now. In that time, they've come out with a whole bunch of new programs, new challenges, new workouts... I don't think you need to worry about running out of programs.

    Based on what you've done so far, maybe you'd enjoy Cardio Trim or Cardio Trim Run?

      Hi! There is a filter for the programs, to help You decide which level and focus to choose. If You had no problem with HIIT Advanced, You might enjoy the action adventures ( Hero's Journey, Age of Pandora, and Carbon and Dust) they are great fun to do! I am doing Avatar Upgrade right now and I love it. Like Kanary pointed out: You can go for a couple of years with Darebee and not run out of Programs/Workouts/Challenges/Themed Weeks...I am doing it for 3 years too and did not repeat a single day. (Though, I am tempted to give Pandora another go).
      All the best on Your journey through the Darebeeverse.

        as Kanary said, it really can be boring - but working out is all about adaptions. For example lets take a closer look at IronBorn - my shadow for the last months - I do it because of a shoulder injury and it helps me a lot to get back, and because I benefit from it, I repeat it. You can add for example more weights - make adaptions to repetitions - change exercises for a specific muscle group - play with range of motion, play with the sequence, etc. - so you see, even if you really like a program and you want to do it again - there is not a special need to move on - if you like, just adapt the program to your own needs - and because of this, you will defeat boringness. Or choose another program - and believe me - you will not run out of programs - the database is full of them and the Darebee Team works always on new programs in the meantime. Or you can choose some workouts and build your own program if you get my drift - always depends on your goals, though. Regarding the latter - because I don´t know your goals, I can´t recommdand something to you. But, long story short: if you really like a program / workout you are doing atm and you benefit from it and you are not to sure to move on, you still have the way of adapting your workout routine and repeat it, or, as Andi64 said: look at the filter in the database whichs helps you find something great for your individual goals. Or, if you can´t decide, choose a themed week - a week full of workouts with a nice badge waiting at the end for you and because it is only a week - there is no loss of time ...

          Thank you so much for your thoughts Kanary, Andi64 and TheLibrarian! I wasn't expecting much of a response when I wrote this topic, and it's nice to hear from people with more experience on the subject than I do. I haven't looked into themed weeks at all yet, but it sounds like it could be fun. I'll look over the programs you all have suggested and see if there's something I would like. You've also given me confidence to repeat programs I've already completed, but perhaps I'll up the pace or add an add-on program to make them more challenging. I'm already noticing the benefits from doing them every day, and I don't think I would find repeating them boring. On the contrary, I like the routine that they provide!

            You could ask yourself, if you want to do any of them again, I would ask myself if I was going to do any cardio style workout again, questions such as could I go faster, could I lift my legs up higher to get more out of the cardio workout.

            really only you could answer those questions but if you think you could do better a second time around, by all means go for it.
