    Can I make my own workout?

    Is there a way to select only the exercises I want and place them into my own workout? I have some injuries that often mean I have to skip one or two of the exercises in many of the workouts.

    You might find something similar to what you're looking for on this page of printable resources so you could put together a physical version of your own workout but if you're asking if there's an online workout-maker then no, there's not. In case you've not seen it and could modify some exercises for your injuries, then this page might be useful too.

      I had seen both, and I do use some of the alternatives and modifications, but i hadn't even thought of using the cards! They will work pretty well, I will just have to take a little time to organize them onto one sheet at a time.

      It would be great if there was a menu of the exercises that I could just check the ones I need to assemble them onto one page for me. Its probably how they are made already, just not available to the public.

      Thanks for your help and super-quick response!

        kaoaaolco you are new here so what I will say is not new to many but I will add it to this thread for the benefit of new people coming across it. Each DAREBEE workout has a three-month long journey from inception to publication and along the way it undergoes many transformations based on the feedback we receive from the many volunteer groups that take part in trying the initial concept. Each is designed to work as smoothly as possible across demographics and skill levels and different levels of physical fitness. And each workout is also designed with specific biomechanical and metabolic loads in mind in order to work on someone's fitness with as much benefit as possible.

        The reason I mention this is that just assembling a whole lot of exercises and putting them together is, indeed, exercising but truly getting fit is more complicated. Case in point training with injuries. Without knowing exactly what it is you are dealing with my comment is only generic, however, injuries need to be rehabilitated and the best form of rehabilitation is some form of activity that activates the muscles and tendons affected by the injury or, in cases of skeletal damage, helps strengthen particular muscle groups that take the excess load off the bones.

        We have over 1,400 workouts in our database and some of these are specifically designed to help rehabilitate injured parts of the body. You should use the filter on the workouts page to see if there are some that can assist you. I really hope this helps. Stay safe.

          The work-outs on here are great guides and are built to achieve specific goals. They're planned and specific.

          Saying that, fitness can be as eclectic as your imagination takes you. I make up stuff as I go, change orders, decide to do something different on the fly and I have great success. Given, I know what I'm doing and I'm a professional worker-outer but that doesn't mean you can't.

          Make stuff up. Poach from here and use the ideas and plans and build out what works for you. The more you enjoy this process, the more successful you'll be.

            You can do whatever you want, but you likely won't get the same benefits as the original workout will give, evening you are just changing one or two things. Like Damer says, they are carefully designed. Even shuffling the order can make huge differences. I did that once, and it's a lot more tiring than following the original order.

              How big of a difference is there and how important is it to follow the sequence..
              Because there are some cases where, if I do the first exercise given there is no way that I would be able to continue.. And I will have to save for that last rep of the last set..
              example.. IronBorn Leg days.. some days (when my energy levels are low), If I do the squats first.. then there is no way I will finish or be able to do the lunges and side lunges after that.. I tried but I can't go ahead..
              The same with shoulder days.. I have issue with one shoulder.. If I have to do the lateral raises at the end.. No I cannot do them at all irrespective the weights I use.. (may be without weights I can do).. but I think the point is understood.

              If the sequence has to be followed absolutely, then may be hence forth I will have to forgo the days (take rest) where I cannot do the exercises in the given order.

              Sorry to post this question here.. but as the discussion is happening and the topic came up I thought it would be apt..
