    Doing a whole program in one day?

    Hi, I'm not new to fitness or darebee and would definitely to be capable to do the 1 star programs in one day each. Maybe even some of the 2 star programs.
    Why would I do that? Because I can only do low impact exercises for now, as I live in a wooden house where I can basically hear a spoon drop in the basement while I'm in the 2nd floor.
    So instead of picking a new cardio program, I may just do a whole bunch of low level stuff to get my exercise through volume, rather than intensity.
    I'm primarily looking to build endurance, so that seems fine too.
    But it seemed to be such a ridiculus idea that I had to ask the community for any concerns I may have missed.
    I have no school right now due to corona holidays in my country, so that wouldn't be a problem.
    Let me know what you think

    Ammmm... Maybe do it in a few days? All in one day is not something you should do very often. I guess the really easy ones like Foundation Light can be done in a day but I still don't think you should. Not without preparations. It would take time and put your body under some stress at least and if you're still at school - I'm guessing your age is under 18, so that's definitely not recommended - If you're at university age and experienced with vigorous exercising, know how your body reacts to different types of stress and are responsible generally speaking... maybe.
    I can think of one equivalent and that is trekking - walking for a few days with only a few stops while carrying weight but that's still pretty different.

    But why not take something more challenging - it could still take up a lot of your day if you play with it.
    Also, why not take the time and make a physical goals list? That way you can work on specific things you want/need to improve.

      Could you bring the workouts outside to your backyard or to a nearby park? You'd be able to do a more appropriate level workout and get the benefits you are looking for.

        I think that for sure it is possible, and would have no significant health effects. I understand what you mean by something like Foundation, as it is a light workout. My wife and I used to use it just as a warmup for more difficult stuff. That said though, just because it is possible doesn't mean that it is productive. Granted that I do not live in your house, but I can't imagine how loud something more intense like situps, pushups and the like would be. If you are at a more elevated level of fitness, you should be able to judge your own needs a bit better, and aside from the oddity of completing it in a day, there is no real need to do so.

          Joints may dislike some of this -- repetitive stress, even if it's low impact, might be an issue.

          Do you have a porch or driveway? Being physically outside the house without interacting with other people, is typically allowed.


          Or can you just warn anyone else in the house "I'm going to be working out now, so there'll be weird noises for xx minutes -- maybe put in your earbuds."

            Ura ... a little math, just for the silly.
            If it takes you half an hour to do a 'Day' of a program, it will take you ! 15 HOURS ! to complete 30 Days of it.
            The new Program - Vitality - takes, perhaps, 20 minutes to complete a 'Day' at Level III. So ... a mere 10 hours. For nearly no bragging rights.
            But ... most will take closer to 30 minutes out of your day. Meaning you will be hard-put to eat, sleep, and take bathroom breaks.
            So ... sure. plan to spend a week focusing on an "Easy" Program, then the following week on another. Maybe hold a contest to see which class-mate can reach the highest 'Level'?

              I did a couple of the programms in less days (some in 5 insteat of 30). It depends on your fitness level and the programm itself. Low level programms (level 1 or 2) can be done as supersets and without rest. I wouldn't recommend to do more than 2 days of level 3 programms in one day.

              Test it with the foundation programms and see how you feel and how much time it take. Dont do more than you are capable of.

                I really don't see the point of doing a program within a day. It will just be a waste of time because it's too easy for you and it's not how it's designed to be. Just because you can do everything within a day it doesn't mean you will get the same benefits as when you do it for 30 days.

                There are tons of other exercises you can do even when noise is a concern, for example squats, or push up, sits ups, as CaptainCanuck mentions. I recommend you look into individual workouts on top of things, or programs like Power Up. You can look into challenges, too. Some are pretty insane like the Super Saiyan challenge and I am sure you are not going to not get enough.

                Just my opinion.

                  This thread reminds me of a thing, that has been around:
                  Do the 100 Challenge in one workout.


                  Spoiler:
                  The last 5 excercises are really challenging.

                    I'm actually doing the vitality program as it was intended now, to stay moving while also spending a lot of time on my computer. On top of that, I'll be starting the strength protocol program at the beginning of next month

                      Darebee has a collection of silent workouts:

                      Maybe this can help you.

                        Thankfully Strength Protocol only has climbers on day 5 as the only loud exercise. That + a lvl 1 Program for warmup and I should be good

                          You could replace climbers with climber taps (slower but harder) to make them less loud.
