There are active recovery days built into the program. It's a very intense program that you need a certain level of fitness for. I tried it and had to stop. Did Intellburn for 3 months and then came back and did Inferno.
And cost a lot less than a medicine ball. Just be careful not to drop it.
Mine is gone too.
There are some great and fun toning and strength workouts. I like Resistance Band Glory, Kettlebell Circuit, JR's Strength workouts, etc. Try a bunch of different ones to find something you'll like.
I love the Cardio Sports drills. The Upper and Lower body workouts by Kearia are tough and get you sweating. Fun fun fun!!!
How far into the program were you? If more than a week I would say just pick up where you left off. Wouldn't recommned skipping ahead.
That's great news. I've been doing IntelliBurn since the beginning of January. I want to try a bunch of different programs (Inferno, TBT, DBK, etc) but want to get a good base built up before jumping into those. I figure they will be there when I'm ready and I don't want to get discouraged. So, I'm waiting until I can do the advanced moves on the IntelliBurn workouts before moving on to somehting else.
This is the guide I used:
Exercise balls are available in a wide range of sizes, suitable for individuals under 4 feet, 6 inches to individuals who are more than 6 feet, 2 inches tall. Balls are sized in centimeters, and some companies may color code the balls to match the size. General size guidelines are accurate for most people; however, you may find a larger or smaller ball more comfortable if you are near the top or bottom size limit. Typically, individuals less than 4 feet, 6 inches require a 30 cm ball. You should choose a 45 cm ball if you are between 4 feet, 6 inches to 5 feet tall. From 5 feet to 5 feet, 5 inches, select a 55 cm ball. If you are between 5 feet, 6 inches and 6 feet, 2 inches, use a 65 cm ball. If your height exceeds 6 feet, 2 inches tall, opt for a 75 cm ball.

This is exactly what I do. I've been on Daily Burn everyday since the beginning of the year. There have been 2 occasions where I just couldn't bring myself to do the scheduled workout. So, I "Discovered" a shorter, less intense workout to do for recovery. I didn't skip a day because I want to keep reinforcing the habit of getting up every morning and doing a workout.
Didn't realize I had a wall. Where will this show up??
I've found that the advanced moves in the medium workouts can make them pretty hard. I'm not sure what criteria is used to determine where each workout falls.
I've been using IntelliBurn. After answering the questionnaire it taylors the workouts to your ability. Once I can do the advanced moves of these workouts I'll move on to Inferno.
If your body isn't used to the impact you need to ease into it slowly. Tendons and ligaments don't adapt as quickly as muscle because of lack of blood flow to those areas. So, you may feel like you can handle the workouts aerobically but you'll be sore in the joints because that adaptation hasn't occurred yet. You should ice those areas and probably do the modifications until you don't feel the achiness in your joints.
What workouts have you been doing? There's a difference between muscle soreness and tenderness in your joints. Soreness in ankles and knees might be a sign of too much intensity or high impact.
Just go to "Workouts" and then "Discover" then you can pick additional workouts. After you complete the workout you'll get the points. There is a great filter feature to find something interesting.
