Is it ok to add in a slower day here and there?

  • I am on Tabata2 day 2 (6th day of TBT). After yesterday's Tabata2, I have to hold railings when going up and down stairs. My legs are so weak, I feel like they might go out on me. I drink a protein shake every day after a workout. When I used to lift free weights before my pregnancy, I know that this level of soreness and fatigue can be over working my muscles... is that something I should be conscious of with TBT, and incorporate more slow days (with yoga) than are scheduled?

    Sorry to hear about the soreness! While there isn't a way to customize an existing program calendar, you can definitely go around this restriction: Go to our Discover/Library section of the site. You can find the link along the top of your workouts homepage. From here you have access to our entire library of video workouts. You'll miss out on your regularly scheduled program's assigned workout for the day, but you'll at least be able to play the less intense workout of your choice. We recommend the 'Recover' program so that you can wind down and increase mobility while still getting in a good workout.

      Awesome! Thanks! I plan on going through a different program when this one is through, then do this program again. I'm keeping a log so that I can see how I improve from this run through TBT and the next time I do it. Hopefully, next time I will be able to do the entire program without making any modifications. :)
