Everything & Anything DC!!!!!!!!!!

I thought I'd throw this out there about the DC lifestyle that has impressed me.
Since I have started DC training in mid August
-Smith incline went from 225x13 to 275x13
-DB flat becnh has gone from 90x12 to 100x17
-Rack Deads 315x12 to 405x8
-Stiff Deads 275x8 to 315x10(maybe 12 can't remember)
Most importantly my weight has gone from 173 to 193. I'd say I've gained some BF(mostly from scrwing around with diff carb timing.....stupid me ) but stil on last belt loop, and a few lbs of water from creatine. So thats about 1lb of LBM per week. I've never experienced gains like thisSerious Nutrition Solutions Representative

See im the other way around. I get real strong without adding much size, I couldnt imagine being 227. I think the largest I've gotten to was in the mid 200's?!?!
Oddly enough the most weight I've pushed on BB Incline was @ 181ish lbs and it was 365lbs!!! I really dont know where it came from and I was actually dieting at the time.
I think I was born to be a powerlifter

Who's still doing DC? I stopped a while ago as I started having some serious issues with my shoulder...does anybody else have joint problems when training this way? I ordered some cissus so hopefully I'll be able to start training DC style again soon...

I can't wait to give DC a try. I am making myself finish my current program first though:
6 weeks of high volume/heavy weight
1 week cruising (this next week in fact)
4 weeks of 14 reps at the heaviest weight possible on movements, low volume 8-12 sets 3 movements.
1 week cruising
4 weeks of training with the heaviest weight possible for 5 sets of 5 reps (will utilize rest pause on last sets) 4 movements 9-15 sets.
Obviously this isn't set in stone, as I rely a lot on how I am feeling and how much progress I am making. For instance I initially only planned on doing this first phase for 4 weeks, but I have yet to even come close to a plateau. At the end of this last week I finally started feeling a little CNS stress, so it is time to back off and hit phase 2.
All that being said, in the meantime I am learning as much about DC as I can, because it really seems like a sound system.

just started working in DC principles back into training and already seeing good results. I like the lower sets of DC and dorian yates training styles. I work them in together without splitting workouts into two catergories, im keeping the 4 day split. more excercises but still using a main working set, this offsets the higher training freq of dc. not sure i made sense but that is what im trying now.

Oh yeah, I'm definitely aware of the slow protein turn over rate in ligaments...It's important to be congizant of the fact that ligaments and tendons grow/repair much, much slower than muscle.

Man...I got such a crazy pump in my shoulders when I did that just now...My shoulder flexibility sucks! I had to use a shower curtain rod because my broomstick handle wasn't long enough...hahaha

FYI a towel is good for the broomstick exercise starting off cause its a little flexible and lets your wrists turn

I love DC. Did it for a while...now doing P/RR/S....really like it too. I think im gonna start rotating routines in this order and see how it goes...
DC - 2-3months
P/RR/S - 2months
FD/FS - 2weeks
