    Program(s) Repetition

    Hi everyone!

    I've been thinking about to repeat the Program Spartan TRIALS and ATHENA'S PLAYBOOK over and over again.
    Do you have any experiences where it would lead if I would repeat these programs for example 3 times in a row?
    Is it a good idea?
    I just recently finished both on Level 3 and am afraid to loose that great ,,kick on,, which these 2 programs gave me! I've been looking over all other Programs and picked up 90 Days of Action but it is not challenging enough so I do more days in one day and in the end it will be 30 Days of Action

    (beside I do HIIT ADVANCED level3,TOTALS + back&core as to fill in gaps) and also other single Workouts which fits in the way I do my training : One day lower body/upper body next day and rep.

    You may find me to be ,,crazy,, or ,,Fanatic,, into training , but I love it and I simply need to do it otherwise I don't feel well
    PS: Although I think I mix up a lot, I try to choose carefully. I don't want to get injured...From my experiences body has to get use to the exact workout and then it gets easier(tendons and joints get stronger).
    This is why I have been thinking about programs Repetition.

    Damer my fav could you please tell me your opinion on that? Or should I just jump into Fighter Codex ....? I've read your comments on how you test the programs etc.for example your answer on this Thread
    So I wonder how does it look like with immediate program Repetition on same level3.

    Thank you very much for your help and adviceπŸ€πŸ’«πŸ€πŸ’«πŸ€πŸ’«πŸ€πŸ’«πŸ€πŸ’«

    Miss_Dada that's a good question. We normally say change program once you've conquered one and conquering means you can do it at Level III with maximum intensity and/or form (depending on what it calls for) without feeling exhausted (it will always be tiring). Because of the time constraints and the number of programs and workouts the volunteer groups test we've only had the opportunity to test repetition twice. Once with Boxer Prime (on programs) and Defiant which was worked on for seven days in a row (on workouts). What we found is that the second time round the participants were able to focus on form. They found themselves doing things better, being more aware of their movements and feeling way more focused on how they executed everything.

    It does come down to individual capabilities. Sounds like you're on a good streak. If you were to repeat a program I'd say you should focus on ways you can improve. Maybe be snappier in your moves when it calls for that, and flow faster in the transitions from one exercise to the next. I hope this helps.

      Thank you very much for your answer Damer

      I will see how it goes with the mixture of programs I mentioned in previous post. I don't like to leave things not finished ....on the other hand I keep thinking about it....
      I like when the Workout is challenging, in the meaning of Endurance and speed, but my martial arts skills are not that good, I only used to do attend Tai Chi school a long time ago....
      So movements I don't know from Box or Martial Arts I learn from videos on Youtube It's quite time consuming but I repeat and reapeat till I think It's OK.
      Do you think it is really possible to learn it correctly alone this way?
      I mean stuff from Fighter's Codex or Boxer Prime ....
      Well thank you for your time and I am sorry I bother you with my questions..

        Miss_Dada no problem at all and the question on martial arts has come up before. Luckily I've put up a post about it here.

            Sorry but this is kinda relevant. Damer for the program Ironbron if I can squat and deadlift more than the suggested 7.5kg then is it ok to up the weight? And if I were to repeat the program with heavier weight would that continue helping me gain strength? Thanks

              Kakarot not who you were asking, but, several ppl on here have seen nice results repeating ironborn w more weight. The suggested weights are just amounts to try if you don't know what to start with, rly. You should use enough weight that the last 2 reps of any set are hard.

                    I think it's normal to find programs that we like best or that we feel they can still give us something. Maybe they can be redone with new challenges For now I still have many programs to try but of the ones I did I would do more than one again

                      I think we all have programs that we'd like to complete again. Personally, I actually loved Ironborn, Combat HIIT, and Power Up! (notably, I am doing Power Up! right now as a second go of it) and I'd likely pick those up again at another time, I just have too many other programs that I'm super enthused about just trying out even if I end up not liking them a ton.
