Has anyone here dabbled in "Doggcrapp" training and if so, what kind of results did you achieve? I have been reading all about it and find it intriguing. The only thing I don't really like is the fact that the disciples of the program seem to think that it requires long-term commitment, even though the hook of the program is basically "fast gains, a lot of pain, little time spent in the gym."
If you haven't read about this method of training before, the concept is pretty simple:
1. Do as many warm up sets as necessary to get up to an 8 RM, then you do the 8 reps, then rest/pause (take a few breaths - up to 15), and then perform another few reps, rest/pause once more and then perform one final set with the goal being to reach 15 total reps with your 8 RM.
That's all you do for that exercise, then you move on to another exercise for a different body part.
Also, the exercise selection is split up based on your "favorite" exercises for a given body part. For example, let's use chest as the body part being worked: the first favorite exercise might be flat barbell bench press, followed by incline dumbbell presses, and then incline barbell bench press.
In workout 1 you do flat bb bench, the next time you do chest, you hit it with incline DB press, and then incline BB press in the 3rd time doing chest. Once you've gone through this rotation, you start with your first favorite exercise again. So, the 4th time you are working your chest is the same as the 1st time (except you want to use heavier weight ).
CHEST: smith incline 375 x 15 reps rest pause (RP) and a 30 second static rep at the end (then stretches)
SHOULDERS: front smith press-330 x 13 RP and 30 second static (then stretches)
TRICEPS: reverse grip bench press 315 for 15-20 reps RP-no static (then stretches)
BACK WIDTH: rear pulldowns to back of head 300 x 18 RP (20 second static at end)
BACK THICKNESS: floor deadlifts straight set of 8-20 reps (then stretches for back)
BICEPS: preacher bench barbell curl RP for 14 reps and 30 second static
FOREARMS: hammer curls straight set for 15 reps (then stretches for biceps)
CALVES: on hack squat straight set for 12 reps but with a 20 second negative phase
HAMSTRINGS: Cybex hamstring press (pressing with heels up top) RP for 20 reps
QUADS: hack squat straight set of 6 plates each side for 20 reps (of course after warming up)
The program is also predicated on "extreme stretching" which is supposed to be a key to the program yielding results. That seems to be the most "annoying" part of the program to me, but maybe some will like the idea of doing (probably much needed) stretching.
Anyway, it seems like something I might try out at some point. Apparently it yields some insane results.
