Male, 29, 108kgs, mostly fat. Started exercising about four weeks ago.
I've been starting with Les Mills On Demand. I've been struggling a little as my thighs are much weaker than the other muscle groups, comparatively speaking, so I'm still doing lower-intensity workouts to accommodate them when my biceps and other muscles could do something higher. I tried to correct this by doing more workouts each day with a few hours rest between which, uh, did not work out- I essentially stopped making any progress during this time. I read some articles about multiple workouts which suggest that it's really not recommended so I went back and checked the starter plan again and I'm finding the workout scheduling recommended to be pretty confusing.
150 minutes a week is the first target. Since the starter workouts are 25-30 minutes, it seems like you can only reach this by doing more than one a day or skipping rest days which seems bad. Things get even worse when considering how to arrange the next target of 300 minutes or 10-12 workouts in a 7 day period. The starter workouts are evenly spread across the body so no muscle group rotation going on there.
If you're not doing multiple workouts each day, how are you supposed to achieve the desired target without breaking the rest days/multiple workouts rules?
I also noticed that the non-starter workouts are often e.g. 60 minutes. How is one 60 minute workout different to two 30 minute workouts?
