Les Mills Combat FAQ – Is this workout program for beginner or advanced?

One of the most frequently asked questions about any of Beachbody’s workout programs is “What kind of shape do I need to be in to start the program?”  For some programs, like P90X and Insanity for instance, the moves are difficult enough that it is recommended that you are at a certain level before starting the program.  Those programs come with a fit test to help you determine if you are ready to “Bring It” with P90X or “Dig Deep” with Insanity.

Les Mills Combat, released in December of 2012 from Beachbody, is a program that is VERY versatile and can be used by just about anyone with any fitness level.  If you don’t have major mobility issues, back problems, knee problems, or other movement inhibiting medical issues then you can start Les Mills Combat.

LES MILLS COMBAT is designed to work for people of all fitness levels, and also can be used as an excellent complement to any other workout program. The 30-minute The Basics DVD is included and provides instruction on how to perform each of the 6 martial arts disciplines used in the program. Additionally, the Stay With the Fight Fitness Guide includes three workout calendars, so you can tailor your program to your own individual needs.

In another blog post (HERE), I give a full overview of the three schedules given for Les Mills Combat.  The beginners can start with the first schedule since it gives two days off and is the lightest schedule.  Slightly more advanced people can use the second calendar (or switch to it part of the way through the program) to add in one more day of training.  Then, there is the Ultimate calendar for those that want to take it to the highest level.

The best thing about the program is that the moves can actually be done with more intensity the more fit you are.  With programs like P90X and Insanity, some of the moves are difficult to modify or make easier for those that aren’t fit enough to even complete the basic move (Level I drills in Insanity, some pushup variations in P90X, and some pullup variations in P90X come to mind).  The moves in Les Mills Combat are mostly moves that you can perform at a slow pace or low intensity and just increase intensity and pace as you get more fit.  This makes it a perfect program for everyone from the out of shape beginner to the more advanced P90x grad looking for something new.
