    we do them on a seated calf raise machine .. put 3 45s on it and set your knees where you'd normally sit facing the opposite direction and put your ankles where your knees would go if you were doing calf raises to support your ankles .. hope that make sense

    Does this look like a hyperextension?


    Thanks for replying to my post earlier BTW.

    Yeah, that does..I never even thought of that..That's a really good idea..I'll try that...

  4. Why are you not taking any sets to failure? (I'm a HIT guy and currently train 1x per week doing a total of 2 sets per week.) Right now I'm 239 at 5'8 have abs and decent separation especially in my legs, not sure of exact BF as I have not had a test done since the last time I competed which was years ago when Craig Richardson blew me away.

  5. where did i say i don't take the sets to failure? i fail btw 10-12 then 6-8 then 4-6

  6. glenihan, do you lift with someone? The reason I ask is that I have just learned of this DC training and I work out alone in my basement. It looks interesting and would like to incorporate it into my upcoming cycle but not sure...

    Do you have any idea how I can adjust this routine to be effective on my own?

    do you use the hammer (vertical) or pronated (horizontal -- like a BB bench) grip on this machine?

  8. pronacted

    and jim, i've done the workout for many weeks at a time by myself and as long as you aren't doing BB bench and your squat rack has safety pins you should be in no danger at all

  9. Thanks for the info glenihan... I just started a variation of this workout this week and last night was my first go at it. I must say it is very intense. I like it.
    The one thing that really suprised me was how tough and painfull the stretches were.... felt like muscle was going to rip from my bone, but afterword I felt great and had a huge pump.

  10. yeah some of the stretches REALLY kill .. i don't know if they really make a difference (aside from the lat stretch which i am POSITIVE does) but they certainly don't hurt and i'll take any extra help i can get

  11. How do you do the lat one that you feel makes it affective? I did it last night and I couldn't really feel much. Not like the chest one for sure.

  12. i use straps and take a SUPER wide grip on the pull up bar with palms away from my body and try to flare out my lats (think looking like a cobra) as much as i can and just hang for as long as i can
