    Different kind of training....


    This training split is nothing like I have ever seen/utilized before.  I have no idea of what to call it.  But I must say when I first saw it on www.gotfina.com in the thread called something like "squats/deadlifts EOW okay?" (EOW is Every Other Workout)...I saw the split and over time (a couple of weeks) I realized that this was a similar split that I used over the summer (I was spending a lot of time with friends and at work so I was physiaclly tired from work and did not want to risk over-training/under-recouperation seeing as I was already on a reduced calorie diet) so I lifted every 3 days or so just to maintain strength.

    Here's the split:

    <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">&nbsp;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o></SPAN>

    <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">Everything was 1 set to fail.
    1) fly super-set w/ incline db
    flat db press
    pullover super-set w/ underhand pull downs
    wide cable rows
    deads

    3 days off

    2) Leg-extentions super-set leg press
    calf raises

    3 days off

    3) side lats
    overhead db
    rear delt fly
    curls
    push downs supers-set with&nbsp;dips

    3 days off

    4) squats
    calf raises

    3 days off

    1)db press
    incline
    under pull down
    row
    shrugs</SPAN><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt"><o></o></SPAN>

    The squat and deadlift are (after a good warmup on a treadmill or bike) one set of 20 reps to failiure, meaning you are dead @ 20 reps, also alternate your leg exercises...squats one workout, deads (full&nbsp;range of motion, no half or partial&nbsp;movements there)&nbsp;the next. And on all exercises do one set to failiure, extremely heavy (6-8 reps, with the exception of squats and deadlifts do one set of 20 reps for those)

    Notice how you work the legs every 8 days and arms, chest and back every 16 days??

    This would be a hard split to start/continue due to most peoples phychological addiction to exercise...

    but after careful thought, I found this split to be more convienient because less time was spent in the gym and I had more time to persue my other interests (i.e. lifeguarding, friends, etc etc)., Even on a reduced calorie diet (and a ****ty diet at that) no supplements (no creatine, PH's, liver tabs) except for some weight gainer (used at half dose as a meal replacement 2-3x/week) and ECA 1-2x/day, I made strength gains&nbsp;on all exercises, especially back exercises since I was swimming so much.

    I believe that with this split you are giving all muscle groups ample time to recover between sessions and weight/strength gains will be progressive and constant.

    Seems to be undertraining to me. Training arms every 16 days, dont expect to grow very much. This is probably the weekend warriors workout routine "I lift when I get a chance, not very often though"


    20 reps of deads and squats are a bit much for me also, but to each his own.

    Have any of you ever heard about "DC (doggrapp) Training"? It is talked about on Animal's Board but I have been unable to find it in full any where.

    There is merit to Mike Mentzer's training. Every 16 days is a little too long. I used to train each bodypart once every 8 days, 1 set to failure. Whole body in two sessions. This was while I worked in a physical labor job, so I couldn't do the volume I could now(plus I wasn't using androgens.)

    I don't agree with you on the Mentzer routine not being effective. It always has been for me- I've used it for years and it's the only one that is logical- whenever I stopped making progress, I'd go back to the principles of HIT and begin gaining again. Lately I feel I've hit a plateau and can't seem to make myself grow. Maybe I've reached "the upper limits of my physical potential", but I hope not as my arms are only 18 inches pumped.

    I do, however, like your username- nice to see Christians on the board.
