    Program after Foundation?

    I'm going to finish Foundation in 4 days or so - any recommendations on my next program? I'm recovering from a bulging disc/sciatica, and I work out in my living room with 7 people sleeping around me, so I can't do much in the way of jumping/running. But I do need some cardio and definitely strength. I have some dumbbells, but I can buy more in different weights if I need to. I have a yoga mat and a yoga block. I'm already working on Power Up (so tough!), and just started Back & Core this month. So, what's the buzz, bees? Is there another good *quieter* workout? If it helps, I can usually do level 3 on Foundation.

    Thanks in advance!

    Coming out of Foundation lv. 3, Back & Core and Power Up are pretty solid choices. If you wanna add to that, I'd say Totals or Cardio Trim are worth a look. There aren't many programs which are legit quiet front to back so sometimes you just gotta get creative with substitutions. Jumping jacks? Steam engines. Burpees, instead of the ending jump toss some punches or roll into a calf raise. So long as you're putting in the work, it doesn't reeeeeally matter if you follow any program super accurately, they just offer good structure.

    I'm not familiar with the limitations that come with a bluging disc or sciatica, but obviously don't do anything to exacerbate your condition.

      I'm also not super familiar with your condition other than that Google tells me it can cause lower back pain so please keep in mind that both of these suggestions would be ones to parse through and see if certain things might need to be adjusted for that as a whole. That said, the first one that came to mind that leans into both strength/bodyweight exercises as well as can be used as a source of cardio if you're doing the work fast is actually Fighter's Codex. I would also consider Athena's Playbook, though that one will likely require some adjustments on some of more typical cardio exercises.

      A lot of programs that are quiet are notably going to be ones focused on strength, but those ones also often aren't necessarily equivocal to also providing cardio.

        jimsgrrl1104 I did the Foundation and then went to 30 Days of HIIT. My wife sleeps later than I do and HIIT seemed just the ticket for getting a good workout without waking the household.
