Muscle Soreness Overrated?

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. Here's the question though...

    I understand the dumba$$es that train for 3 hours, once a week and all and get sore... But I've been getting sore A LOT lately, and I mean sore, as in I can't really stand to do cardio after leg training day for instance. And I do DC workout, so it's not like I don't train the muscles, hell, I hit them all twice a week, and am in and out of the gym in like 40 minutes, so it's not like I'm not being efficient. I am also following the routine pretty darn well, and doing what is suggested.

    So the question is, how the heck am I getting sore?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but DC utilizes a lot of negatives, failure, and rest pause sets, correct?

    Negatives, failure sets, and such cause a lot of muscular damage, which is also why DC sessions are lower volume and short.

    You're correct.

  4. I did DC for about a year. Every day I woke up feeling like I was hit by an 18-wheeler. I really like it but don't recommend it all too highly.

  5. What is DC and what is the benefit?

  6. It claims to be fastest way to put on the most mass in the shortest routine cycle. Here's my take
    Pros: Lift heavy, easy to track and follow, has its own culture per say, great for putting on mass fast
    Good focus on negative reps

    Cons: Harsh on joints, no conditioning, potentially asymmetrical growth, little variation of muscle fiber stimulation

  7. IMO the soreness shouldn't b to much of an issue as long as you not getting into overtraining. When you stop making gains or hit that plateau ,and you feel like you are still chalanging your body to the max, you should really look at your Diet and Recovery.
