Several people have tried to do multiple programs at a time including myself but the general advice is to always do one well to get the maximum benefit because Darebee's programs are designed to be done one at a time :)
I am of the opinion that if you feel like it you can experiment and have fun, just be careful to dose the effort :LOL:

You can also filter the programs and select "addons" which are designed for what you're considering - being done in addition to another "full" program. They're intended to compliment full programs and shouldn't interfere with anything else you're doing. Back and core is an addon and 10 is lite enough that it should also be fine.

I'm always doing that because I exercise once in the morning and once in the afternoon so two programs work best for me. The add on programs are ideal if you exercise once a day otherwise it might be a bit much.

I know this is several weeks later, but wanted to offer my two cents, having attempted multiple programs before, as well. Pay attention to your level of fitness. There are programs that are add-ons, as has been mentioned - specifically Vitality and Baseline, which are two I have done together - and which are considered Level 1 difficulty on a scale of 5, 5 being the hardest. Even if you're not a stranger to exercise, still pay attention to your level of fitness. I had been no stranger to exercise, but I tried two Level 5 programs at the same time and failed. Burned myself out because I was still at fitness level 1. I even tried five programs of various levels of difficulty at the same time including a couple Level 5 difficulty programs. Burned out by day three. I told myself I could do it and was motivated, that I had the willpower. Didn't matter. I was still too low of a fitness level to pull it off. I had eaten with my eyes instead of my stomach, as it were. There are so many fun things to do, but all in moderation.

As @Kanary said, it is doable, but my two cents is pay attention to your fitness level when choosing what to add and all in moderation.
