    Nice. Calves have just always been one of those finishing lifts, so this should be interesting.

    Can you give some examples on how you would change volume, and rotate around game days?

    DC is a training program, and is laid out how it should be done. If that doesn't fit your lifestyle, then maybey it is not for you at this time.

  6. I seen you over at IM imprezi.

    have you done DC before? I would use the DC principles that are available and try to do a 2 day split during the season, like an upper/lower or push and quads/pull and hamstrings, something like that, to ensure plenty of recovery time

  8. Thanks bros, I was thinking about doing what warnerve said, using the DC principles on 2 days, might try to get 3 days Thinking Quads/hams/calves, Chest/Back/Bi's, Shoulders/tris, and most likely swapping around the upper body combos every couple of weeks, I would most likely have Sunday through Thursday to lift, and no I have never done DC before, currently doing a modified westside routine.

  9. You guys think if I eat the DC way. Just follow the general guidelines of the pro/fat and pro/carb splits and timeing, no carbs after 6pm, and def not eating that much food he lays out 10,000cal plans and do fasted cardio 3days a week. It would be legit as a recomp? Im trying to grasp this but im not sure.

    I guess I could always be the guinea pig. I wanted to try the DC as a recomp during august and take a week off of everything (diet/lifting/supps) and then hit it hard bulking DC style.

  10. How many cals do you usually use for those goals? I'd say stick around that range, but keep protein high.. With carb cut offs, and cardio, you should be good to go, as long as your calories are where they need to be.

    I was thinking about 3,500cals for the recomp with protein close to 350gr/day. I will be around 180lbs when I start the recomp.

  12. I would agree with imprez. I would probably stick the carbs right before and after my workouts though. Then pretty much no other carbs except veggies.

  13. Yea i was thinking about moderate amounts of carbs for breakfast for breakfast then about 150-200gr around workout time from brown rice and I should be ok.

  14. I have spent all week researching and putting together my routine to start DC next week. I miss all the hammer strength equipment from Fort Hood though, would give me so many more options. Oh well I still love my Old School YMCA equipment :good:

  20. I cant seem to hold that quad stretch longer then 30 seconds right now. Does anyone else notice the pressure build up in the knees? Really thats just my excuse for the stretch being so damn painful.

    The quad stretch is my favorite!I have found stretches are best done right after the exercise.I mean right after.Just cause they hurt more cause the muscles pumped which tells me better fascia tissue stretching.Do you mean pressure in the tear drops,or the actual knees?Cause my tear drops hurt while stretching the quads....

    Its mostly tear drops yeah. But the whole area feels really tight. Pretty cool stretch though. Would have never thought of that before DC.

    I have seen tom platz do something similar where you lay back with your legs folded under you,but it just hurts everywhere other than my legs.I always feel so dumb when I do that quad stretch.I wonder how many are trying to figure out what the hell I'm doing?**** 'EM ALL!!!!

  24. Im pump'd to start this stuff! I've talk'd to a few more bros about it who really like'd it during a bulk. No one seems to use it during a cut. Anyone have any thoughts on that?

    This is from the big man himself

    THINK ABOUT IT!!!! Your 200lbs, eat like a 250lb guy to get freakshow bigger, and train like a rhino with heavy weights to get larger but also do everything in your power (green tea, cardio, carb cuttoffs) to keep at a bodyfat percentage that your proud of or can live with. This is all about turning your body into a muscle building fat burning blast furnace!
    If you do bulking and cutting for the next 2 years and with all those "cutting cycles" adding up to a years time, guess what you just gave up a year of lifting--one year of nonexistant muscle mass accumalation. Thats like lifting for the next 6 years and you only get 3 years of productivity out of it. See the problem is, alot of people try to stay lean year round while also tryng their hardest to put on muscle mass and they do it all wrong. They eat like a 190lber trying to get to 250lbs and think that--by some miracle that will get them there. This is all about becomeing a food processing machine here. Take in a surplus (protein/food), create a demand to put on muscle (seriously heavy lifting/DC training) and then taking care of excesses and burning them off (carb cuttoffs/cardio/thermogenisis)----eating and training like a 300lbs offseason behemoth but doing everything else in your power to be that guy walking around at 7-14% bodyfat (whatever floats your boat)....See its not that hard, just think it out....but most of all dont waste your freaking time taking 2 steps forward and 1.5 steps backward....this is about constant forward progress. If I hear anyone say "cutter" or "bulker" again on this board, you get the official title of "bodybuilding.com guy", like a scarlet letter. This is constant bulking and cutting at the same time and you dont forsake one for the other unless your competing for a show. "

    I have used it while in a cal deficit plenty of times.. Good results either way..

    Your blasts may be end up being a bit shorter..

    Currently i am slowly dieting, and still beating my log book.

  27. Good to know impresiv.

    It's still cutting IMO Smeton. Your counting cals with strict carb cut offs and adding in fasted cardio sessions, slowly until reaching cardio for 45min, on every day but leg days. Along with thermos. Your trying to lose fat so it's cutting. I was just wondering because most guys I talk to go back to regular training.

    If the first 4 weeks go well then I may stick with this. I usually have good luck with lower volume's when bulking. I think

  28. See, for me, i'd rather stick with what got me the muscle.

    You may have to up your rep ranges a bit, and adjust your blast length. It is very individualized.

    EXACTLY!If X built the muscle,then why use y to try and keep it while dieting?

  30. I would not say that I am currently bulking and/or cutting. I would say I'm trying to add lean mass with as few as carbs as possible (carb sensitive here). I also expect to maintain my current BF% (right now somewhere around or below 10%) during this 4-6 DC blast.

    I've only done 4 workouts, but I am actually quite impressed with my recovery time. I believe it has to do with 1 of two things:

    1. The extreme stetching and low volume
    2. A late night bcaa/glutamine shake I have added in mid-sleep

    And/or a combination of the above two. Keep in mind I am assisted however I do still overtrain on occasion even with the help.
