Would it be a bad thing to add to my scheduled workouts?
When I started TBT almost 3 weeks ago, I was asking if I could do slower days more often bc I was so incredibly sore... However, now I feel like I need more... today is day 2 of two slow days before another two days of TBT and I feel great. I'm only mildly sore in limited areas and would really like to do something more than Release Total Body today. Would that be detrimental to the program? I know some programs designed by trainers are designed for specific reasons and to alter them really changes what the program can accomplish. So, should I just stick with the slow days, or is it ok to also go for a run or something?by: brandiep1982
If you'd like to do something else, you can try doing some sort of steady-state cardio - nothing else high-intensity - to see how your body reacts. Or just enjoy the easy day!
I felt the same way after I competed the first 28 day cycle of tbt, so for my second cycle I started adding workouts on the rest days, but still doing the yoga and mobility. By about day 18 I started feeling really run down and achy, then I injured my shoulder doing sit throughs, mostly due to bad technique because I was sore. Now I haven't really been able to do much for over 3 weeks while the shoulder heals which is a real setback. If I could have my time over I would have been more patient and just gradually increased my fitness level over time, sticking to the program. So my advice - if you increase your workouts, be sure to listen to any aches and pains, don't ignore them like I did!
I am doing TBT right now and do an easy run 3 days a week in addition to the workouts.
