    30 Days of Gravity

    Pity I can't put two or more icons on the subject line, so you'll have to put up with them here.

    Ok, I did this as a follow on to Ironborn and I feel it worked well. I did the optional substitutions of alternating dumbbell curls for back fists and renegade rows for shoulder taps. I think that worked well for me.
    I liked that it made a nice 'sequel' to Ironborn for me. I continued to gain bulk and definition in my arms, so yay! I also used Indian clubs with raised arm circles and raised arm holds for a little extra oomph.
    As the program progressed the number of sets increased on part one of each day, so budget time for that.
    Also, I don't like the words "push-ups to failure." But I did get used to them. And you should too.
    Finally, if you are working on pull-ups, you will see a decrease in your max number of push-ups if only due to fatigue.
    I recommend this workout and suggest using dumbbells with it.

    Hi,

    I'm coming towards the end of my first programme- 30 days of HIIT and also half way through Total Abs.

    I've narrowed my next programme down to Ironborn and 30 days of gravity.

    Seeing as you've done both recently I thought I would ask you what way round you would recommend doing them and why?

    If anyone else has an opinion please feel free to share!

      I'd do Ironborn first, then 30 Days of Strength and use the dumbbell substitutions.
      Why: Ironborn will build you up. Be prepared to increase the weights for your dumbells as you go through the program. When you're done, 30 Days of Strength will build on it nicely, especially if you use the dumbbell substitutions. Early days will feel a bit like a vacation, but it does come back in intensity.

        Thanks for the advice that's great.

        One more question- say you started of with 10kg dumbbells, would you do all of the exercises on that day with 10kg, or would you use different weights for each exercise?

          Try to do them all with the same weight, but listen to your body. There were days when I had to step down to lighter weight for some exercises.

            Thanks,

            Just got myself a 40kg cast iron dumbbell set for £30! I'll only be using a fraction of the weight at the moment though!

            I've got 5 days of HIIT left so Ironborn starts on Friday.
