    Continuing Ironborn past day 30

    Has anyone done the Ironborn program multiple times? I’m still fairly new to working out and I enjoyed the Ironborn program and the results I got from it. Does anyone have tips for redoing it? Do I just increase the weight that I was using and got from the beginning?

      Welcome to the hive cowcow923!
      I've repeated Ironborn a few times now, increasing the weight each time. I always take a couple of days break in between, since it starts and ends on similar days (I sometimes choose a random ab workout and leg workout to do before starting again). I've also taken longer breaks before repeating it, sometimes doing another program or one of the themed weeks, just to mix things up a bit.

        Repeating Ironborn with a higher weight is essentially what most people do who lift weights or do machines a the gym: Increasing the resistance and starting from the lower reps again.

          I redid Ironborn but played with the rep scheme - lowered reps a lot and went with much higher weights going for strength rather than hypertrophy.

            Thanks for the advice everyone! Special thanks to Silent Wolf for the link to those themed weeks I kept seeing badges for them but couldn’t find them on the site.

              In that case I feel it's worth mentioning that you can view any programme and week behind a badge by clicking on said badge. Also, it's well worth scrolling to the bottom of the main page, where a lot of cool stuff can be found (the themed weeks, for example, but also templates for training plans, the manual,the exercise video library and much more)

                I think that with progression with weight training you can follow this simple equation: Sets X Reps X Weight Lifted = Total Volume. Change its components to get greater Total Volume. I am changing reps since I would have to buy a new set of dumbbells to get greater weight.
