    Programmes that work with another

    When a programme can be used in conjunction with another, should it be done right after or could it be one be in the morning and the other say, at night?

    I think it really comes down to what you think you are capable of physically, and what will keep your interest.

    We just finished doing 5 at once, due to some odd circumstances, but they worked well enough together. As long as you respect the down time on a program, you should be fine.

      I'd say both ways are possible but I personally like to do them right after each other because of the longer rest period. It also depends on the individual focuses of the programs. If you for example got two leg days on different programs you shouldn't split them. Other darebees might have a different opinion..

        There are a few programs that are specifically add-ons - total abs, epic 5, power up, core strength (and maybe others I missed) . Adding them to a main program should be fine. Have fun!

          Good evening!
          I am currently doing 2 Baseline programs and 60 days of Cardio in parallel, because in terms of training I have 1 day of physical training, and the other day is cardio day. This combination turned out to be successful for me, a different type of exercise, a different load. plus Baseline 1 difficulty level, and 60 day of Cardio - 2. This also helps at the beginning of classes, one day is not as difficult as the second, can be considered as a day of rest. I plan to take Back & Core as the next 2 program for execution.

            Firstly, a quote from here,
            the programs are designed to be done daily and you will probably get the best results if you follow that structure. It's better to do one program at 100% than two programs with 50% each.
            And then, let me link an old post that I hope it could help you and more users, and clarify some ideas about quantity and quality.: Click!!!


            Apart the mentioned challenges and add ons, if you're fit enough, or you feel you can do a bit more, I would add also the idea to take an easy program to use as warm up. Maybe not doing the higher level, but maybe doing some sets.. Read here Foundation, Baseline, or Zero Hero, for example.

            And a last suggestion, if the courrent program is too easy, do it harder. Some classic ideas, in function of the goal: slower push ups, quicker punches, wheighted leg raises, etc.


            I do sometimes more than one program at the same time. My basic rule is match the same type of workout the same day. If it's necessary, in the "secondary" program, I delay a day or exchange it. I consider that the "secondary" one is just as a dessert, not the main course.

                I typically do two Darebee programs at once and, with the exception of doing Ironborn and 30 Days of Change together, all of my Darebee specific workouts are with one full program and an add-on program. Typically speaking, add-ons can be done with the other program and I've largely found success in doing one right after the other, although I have been careful to not stack two leg workouts together, two upperbody workouts together, two abs workouts together, etc. However, if it works better for you to do a workout in the morning and then later in the evening, then that works too. Mostly the idea with Darebee as a whole is that it's accessible and it's largely better to plan your workouts based on what you will do rather than what other people tell you to do. After all, you're more likely to get moving with what works for you, not necessarily what works for other people.

                Moreover, if something is a little too easy, you can always alter things to be a little harder too - maybe do a different form of push up or squat that can be trickier, reduce your rest time, or find a way to add weights to it (if you don't have or can't get weights, you could find holding household items like even two cans of food might be worth considering).
