Working out mulitple days in a row...

  • I am new to this and don't see anywhere that it suggests which workouts to do which days? So far, when I log in it is just popping open a workout that I should do. I know I shouldn't lift multiple days in a row and it doesn't seem to take that into account. Suggestions?

    People say it's best to choose what you feel you can do. For my knowledge you shouldn't work the same muscle groups every day, that gives muscle time to rest, heal and so on. However at some point you may feel the need to do more.

    Someone asked a question about running every day. It's sort of weird to say you can't run every day as you walk every day.

    So in the end I think it's best to do what your body tells you to do. But don't forget to rest from time to time.

    Also, Daily Burn suggests work outs, but there's a variety to choose from, you don't necessarily have to do the suggested one.

    I try to work lower body one day and upper body the other. That kinda keeps things balanced. But, as said, you can walk every day.

    Hey kellih13, I think this is the beauty of DB, that you are stumbling upon. When you answered your questions to create your profile, DB was calculating your goals and workouts. Me thinks that there is an algorithm or something, that delivers workouts with many of the considerations you would consider on your own. I think it is part of the No Excuses mentality. Turn DB on and do "that" workout, let DB sweat the small stuff. Keeping it simple has been working for me.

    My husband is a personal trainer and I have been working out with one for the last year - down 55lbs. You can lift weights two days in a row, they just need to be on a different muscle group.

    I think DB is leaving the scheduling up to the users. The videos that pop up on a daily basis appear to be suggestions. The same goes with the nutrition side of the site; I have not noticed any "cheat days" popping up.
