Each workout bundle has a 3 day, 4 day, and 5 day option, as well as an option for when you’re shorter on time.

You can also complete up to 3 programmed cardio sessions per week (but only if you want to!) 

Most of our workouts take 60-75 min.

But if shorter on time, DB Quickie workouts take 30 minutes and 45-Min Physique take 45 minutes!

You also have the option to complete programmed zone or zone 5 cardio sessions on top of lift sessions. These are usually 20-30 minutes (but completely optional!)

We’ve all been there, you got this!

You should follow 30 Min DB Quickie or 45 Min Physique!

Since these workouts are shorter, there will be less movements to learn and get familiar with at one time, so workouts should feel less overwhelming (:

Once you’re feeling a little more comfortable in a few months, switch to one of our 60-min programs!
