DC made known to me this routine, SB gave me a calf routine with other tips, goldenear gave me progressive overload. i have created nothing and dare i say, neither have they. i have no issue at all with bodybuilders, i started out as one but eventualy became more interested in strength than anything else, hence my routine. yes, it does still involved some bb'ing ideas that i clung to. will strength training alone build more mass? to some degree - yes. but not to the degree of hypertrophy specific training.

    this is becoming childish.
    Shut up. We're bored.

    i've never once knocked a bodybuilder on here. and i have a great respect for what they do. and in my sport more does = better. more weight lifted = better at your sport.

    and you saying that 99% of powerlifters dont care what they put in their mouth is just a crazy statement.

    I said 99% of the people overall, not just powerlifters. Drinking an occasional protein shake doens't count either.

    More sets don't equal more results. You said his routine was 50 pages.

    i dont knwo what's exactly in his routine, i just know it was about 50 pages. if i have to read 50 pages to outline a routine then i'm not interested.

    and i know more sets done equal more results. i did 12 total sets on monday's workout

    I assumed it was a ****load of sets but the point applies. People follow these 20+ set routines.

    All I can say is that obviously your doing something right when you put up your routine, and less than 9 hours later, you already have 5 pages of replies and its a sticky.

    Hey Beelz,
    I just made a first attempt at a DC split. I had been lifting by feel, and it was working for a while, but it is getting stale. I'm ready to impose some more structure.

    I broke the exercises up across 3 days, instead of two. Otherwise, I'll be in the gym for too long and end up dropping exercises due to time constraints.

    Would you mind taking a quick peek at this: http://anabolicminds.com/forum/uploa...1149372273.doc

    As you may have noticed, I change the order of bodyparts to allow additional recovery. Instead of Chest/Shoulders/Tris/Back Width/Back Thickness, I set it up as Chest/Width/Delts/Thickness/Tris

    I plan to do something like:
    1a
    2a
    Rest
    3a
    Rest
    1b
    Rest
    2b
    Rest
    3b
    Rest
    1c
    2c
    Rest
    3c
    That gives me 9 workouts in 15 days.

    Man, I missed a bodybuilders vs. powerlifters debate?! Where the hell was I?!



    My official statement is that muscle fiber hypertrophy is a significant source of additional strength available to trained athletes, and in many cases will translate directly in to increased sports performance.

    That being said, there's nothing wrong with being freaky looking I just like to make fun of bodybuilders because Bodybuilding contests seem to be blatantly homosexual.

    Yeah, far more homosexual than massive, lard-laden beasts in ultra-tight pling suits.

    Gotta give it to you, that was pretty funny

    ...but I'd have to say that the homosexuality is more subtle than blatant.

    Yeah one of the first ever programs that I used was DC's. It was a great program. I was very very strong, that is one of the biggest things I noticed. I didn't grow quite as much but I definitely had the strength. I think one of the hardest things was getting in the mindset for it. You really have to go in like you are psycho and move the weights. Basically the only grudge I had against it was 1. for lagging body parts such as my biceps I found it impossible to make them grow with such little work (even with rest pause). 2. Although I stayed lean, I didn't stay as lean as I do now with a 4-5 day higher volume routine.

    But for all you out there looking to change it up, give this a try you wont be disappointed.

    I went over to intensemuscle to look at the stretches and signed up an account and all and do not see any pics in his thread about extreme stretching...

    Try this.





    PNF Stretching

    PNF stretching (or proprioceptive muscular facilitation) is one of the most effective forms of flexibility training for increasing range of motion (1,2).
    PNF techniques can be both passive (no associated muscular contraction) or active (voluntary muscle contraction). While there are several variations of PNF stretching, they all have one thing in common - they facilitate muscular inhibition. It is believed that this is why PNF is superior to other forms of flexibility training (1,2,3,4).

    Both isometric and concentric muscle actions completed immediately before the passive stretch help to achieve autogenic inhibition - a reflex relaxation that occurs in the same muscle where the golgi tendon organ is stimulated. Often the isometric contraction is referred to as 'hold' and the concentric muscle contraction is referred to as 'contract'.

    A similar technique involves concentrically contracting the opposing muscle group to that being stretched in order to achieve reciprocal inhibition - a reflex muscular relaxation that occurs in the muscle that is opposite the muscle where the golgi tendon organ is stimulated.

    Using these techniques of 'contracting', 'holding' and passive stretching (often referred to as 'relax') results in three PNF stretching techniques. Each technique, although slightly different, involves starting with a passive stretch held for about 10 seconds.

    For clarity and to compare each technique, think of a hamstring stretch in the supine (on back, face up) position for each example. The athlete places one leg extended, flat on the floor and the other extended in the air as close to right angles to the body as possible.

    Hold-Relax


    A partner moves the athlete,s extended leg to a point of mild discomfort. This passive stretch is held for 10 seconds.
    On instruction, the athlete isometrically contracts the hamstrings by pushing their extended leg against their partner's hand. The partner should apply just enough force so that the leg remains static. This is the 'hold' phase and lasts for 6 seconds.
    The athlete is then instructed to 'relax' and the partner completes a second passive stretch held for 30 seconds. The athlete's extended leg should move further than before (greater hip flexion) due to autogenic inhibition activated in the hamstrings.
    Contract-Relax


    A partner moves the athlete's extended leg to a point of mild discomfort. This passive stretch is held for 10 seconds.
    On instruction, the athlete concentrically contracts the hamstrings by pushing their extended leg against their partner's hand. The partner should apply enough force so that there is resistance while allowing the athlete to push their leg to the floor (i.e. through the full range of motion). This is the 'contract' phase.
    The athlete is then instructed to 'relax' and the partner completes a second passive stretch held for 30 seconds. The athlete's extended leg should move further than before (greater hip flexion) due to autogenic inhibition activated in the hamstrings.
    Hold-Relax with Opposing Muscle Contraction


    A partner moves the athlete's extended leg to a point of mild discomfort. This passive stretch is held for 10 seconds.
    On instruction, the athlete isometrically contracts the hamstrings by pushing their extended leg against their partner's hand. The partner should apply just enough force so that the leg remains static. This is the 'hold' phase and lasts for 6 seconds. This initiates autogenic inhibition.
    The partner completes a second passive stretch held for 30 seconds, however the athlete is instructed to flex the hip (i.e. pull the leg in the same direction as it is being pushed). This initiates reciprocal inhibition allowing the final stretch to be greater.
    Here are some other general guidelines when completing PNF stretching:


    1. Leave 48 hours between PNF stretching routines.

    2. Perform only one exercise per muscle group in a session.


    3. For each muscle group complete 2-5 sets of the chosen exercise.


    4. Each set should consist of one stretch held for up to 30 seconds after the contracting phase.


    5. PNF stretching is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18.


    6. If PNF stretching is to be performed as a separate exercise session, a thorough warm up consisting of 5-10 minutes of light aerobic exercise and some dynamic stretches must precede it.

    7. Avoid PNF immediately before, or on the morning of competition.

    Would you mind taking a quick peek at this: http://anabolicminds.com/forum/uploa...1149372273.doc

    As you may have noticed, I change the order of bodyparts to allow additional recovery. Instead of Chest/Shoulders/Tris/Back Width/Back Thickness, I set it up as Chest/Width/Delts/Thickness/Tris

    I plan to do something like:
    1a
    2a
    Rest
    3a
    Rest
    1b
    Rest
    2b
    Rest
    3b
    Rest
    1c
    2c
    Rest
    3c
    That gives me 9 workouts in 15 days.
    should work fine. lifting by feel doesn't really go too well with the program though. a lot of sh!t i don't feel like doing but have to anyway just to beat last weeks numbers. if you're stalling out on an exercise after being on it too long, that's a total different matter - just replace it. perhaps, i'm misunderstanding.

    in any case, that split looks fine.

    thanks, B.

    What I meant to say is that I had been training by feel for a few months after about 9months of logging everything in a journal. At first, the lack of structure was refreshing, but I'm starting to hit diminishing returns.

    With this, I won't be doing anything by feel.
