    Rest days?

    Hi there, 1st post and its a question

    Recently I have been advised that strengthening my core could help with posture while cycling, making longer rides more lower back friendly. But noticed (having followed a few training plans of late) there are no rest days sheduled, are these not needed with the workouts here? For example the 'Core Strength' goes for 30 days straight, the plans i have followed for improving fitness through cycling would have had 2 seperate rest days each week "allowing your body to recover/become more efficient during the downtime".

    Hi SoapyWeasel , first welcome to the Hive.


    Programs are designed to be done in straight days. They are scheduled in a way that no overtraining occurs. From one day to another different muscles/body parts are worked, so this way in fact some kind of rest exists (by muscles group), although you're training everyday.


    Regars, kisses & hugs from Spain.

        And of course there are some workouts, specially for Core & Abs, that can be done everyday AFAIK. It's up to us to skip one day, or more, if we have sore muscles. I did Back&Core in straight days and I have begun recently the Core Strength one, and when possible I'll do it in straight days also.

          The idea of most of the programs here is that you have "active rest" days mixed in with the harder days, so not a full rest day but something lighter. Core Strength doesn't seem to have that clear difference, maybe because it's an add-on program so already considered to be shorter or lighter. If you need to take a full rest day that's fine though, Darebee programs can be adapted to suit your own needs and abilities.
