I'm feeling a little in between and like don't fit in any of the programs...

  • I'm just starting out again but I feel like I'm between True Beginner and everything else. True Beginner feels slow for me (my heart rate hardy rises and I barely sweat) but all the other programs make my knees and wrists hurt. Could my form be that bad, or should I just take it slow and not get as much from a workout for a couple of weeks until my joints strengthen, is there something else I could do? I've always had weaker joints but I never thought they would be what hurt in a standard pushup.

    Try something that catches your attention. If it doesn't work you can always pick another program. Just go for it! You got it!

    Do something that you find a bit challenging, but take more rest days and stretching and follow the modifiers for anything that hurts your wrists/knees- you will still get a decent workout from modified push ups without having to carry your whole body weight and eventually you will find yourself getting stronger. (If you feel actual pain though, see a doctor)

    I was at the same crossroad about a month ago. I moved onto a modified cardiosculpt program and substituted extra rest days so that I only worked out hard 2 consecutive days. I also did low impact variations for some of the jumping cardio stuff. For example on week one schedule I did - BHT - Cardio sculpt -Stretch - rest - Kickin it - BHT - Rest. I repeated this a 2'nd week and then re-started the program and am now doing all the work outs. I'm still doing low impact variations of some of the jumping exercises and increasing the impact slowly.

      Seems like you've found a way to make the workouts work for you - that's the best! Enjoy! And let us know how it goes!

    I'm in the same boat. I've decided just to stick with True Beginner, and kick myself up a notch. I do everything a little faster, a little more intense, and sometimes for a little longer. I'm just going to do it every day for a month and then switch to something like Intelliburn. I haven't been as consistent as I should be, so I think doing this will be better than trying to push myself too hard and quitting because "I'm too sore" (or some other excuse).

      I might even work out twice a day a few times, like today I probably will after doing the Core 1 program... only 20 minutes and a bit too easy!
