Everything i have on paper is literally what the basic layout is. I won't use static holds and all that unless i stop seeing progress. My first DC workout will be only 3 exercises but it'll be insane with this rest/pause technique. I still have to post my back workout tomorrow morning but the rest/pause was CRAZY.

    Must have been some brutal lunges! I just got a call and my training for working at the gym/supp store should start this week

    Also i found the BEST bulking food for the best price, I just got 20 Beef/Bean burritos from Aldi for $5.80 @ .29 cents EACH. 350 Calories each! Cheaper than fast food and not as much fat. That combined with whole milk i should hit higher calories in a breeze. Going to try and get 4500-5k today. Weight is still the damn same 231.6Lbs GRRRRRRRRRR

    Thanks man, good luck to you as well.

    Still for some reason lunges are soo hard for me pain wise, i couldn't imagine another 100+ lbs while doing em.


    These burritos actually taste really good too! Throw some salsa verde on it with some cheese and omnomnom

    Reps for walking lunges! They are an amazing exercise that you just don't see people doing that often

    So great back workout tonite, I literally am going off of almost no caffeine. like 30 mg a day. hahaha. I was doing 175 on the tbars (7 25s going deep and strict form) for sets then did the Fascia stretching after like 5 of my lifts, it really burns. I did it on lat pull downs too. did 290x5, 180x6, and 90 pounds to pull up for 30 secs and then pulled it down and held it 30 seconds and I was sweating and like dying it hurt so bad. I deadlifted for the first time and bent over row for the first time since I got hurt. pretty awesome. I would put this in my log but no one is there :P hahaha.

    In reply to my DC routine: First off, I NEVER do the exact same thing. for example: If i do flat BB bench on monday, on friday i will do DB incline....etc

    Here is an example of a weeks workout

    Monday - Barbell Bench - warmup set of 12, warmup set of 10 followed by three sets of 8,5,3 with 12 breaths in between them all. I stretch in between each set and after my final set.

    Reverse Grip Flat Bench Same as above

    Incline DB Flys Same as above

    Skull Crushers first set is 12 reps. second set 10 reps followed by a burnout of two sets of ten reps. stretching after

    Squats same as flat bench

    Calf Raises 20,15,10 not following DC style. 3 min break in between sets followed by stretching.


    Wednesday - T Bar Rows Same as flat bench

    EZ Bar Close Grip Curl Same as flat bench

    Deadlifts Same as flat bench

    Preacher Curl first set of 12, second set of 10 followed by a burnout of two sets

    Wide Grip Pullups 2 sets to failure. 4 min rest in between sets


    Friday - Incline DB Same as flat bench

    Dips Same as flat bench

    Sitting Hammer Strength Flys first set of 12, second set of 10, followed my a burnout of two sets

    Reverse Grip Sitting Hammer Strength Extensions Same as flat bench

    Leg Press 3x6


    After I do DC for about 6 weeks, i go to my 4x/week routine to see where my strength really is. Its hard to notice strength gains during DC because you arent really resting in between sets. I like to break from DC every 6 weeks and see where I stand. This routine may not work for everybody, but my body has been responding very very well to it. any questions just post on here.

    thats the whole point. the 12 breath logic is straight from DC (at least the article that I saw).

    I probably missed that part, I just read the part about the stretching, and the sets to get the pump up which I think is the same point as the 12 breath, but I was takin more time between my initial sets and going heavier, gradually getting them closer then drop sets into it. like I did my tbars tonite like this:

    125x10, 60 sec break. 175x7, 60 second break, 175x10, 45 second break, 175x6, straight into 125x6, into the pull stretch for 20ish, into the "row" stretch for as long as I could hold it. I found it awkward doing the pull stretch the way I planned for them, so I might have to find a new way to pull the rear delts haha. It is definitely tough.

    After I do DC for about 6 weeks, i go to my 4x/week routine to see where my strength really is. Its hard to notice strength gains during DC because you arent really resting in between sets. I like to break from DC every 6 weeks and see where I stand. This routine may not work for everybody, but my body has been responding very very well to it. any questions just post on here.

    How has DC worked for you overall? Like do you use it with goals to gain strength only? Or does it help you gain some size? Or endurance maybe?
    I find that with my sports goals I have to really find programs that assist with sport specific movements/rep rhythm and rest periods....
    Just wondering if you think DC is good for a sport like MMA. Sorry to go off topic, but I'm just wondering.

    OH one more thing, any idea if it's okay to do DC protocol with unilateral movements? I.E. doing then bench press ONE arm at a time?

    I would think DC would be awesome for mma. then again it depends on fighting style too!

    I don't train for sports anymore because I always get hurt and can't play, so I might as well stick with lifting. I was out my whole junior year of track and my whole senior year of football...

    Seems so, RP, static holds, ME, DE, even EDT for endurance while outputting max effort is needed for sports I'd think.... Hmm... But yea, I get injured a lot too. Last time I was in judo my senior year in HS I had to stop because while practicing sweeps a buddy of mine destroyed my blood vessels in my right shin... I had to keep my leg elevated for weeks because the blood would just pool in my foot....

    Here is an example of a weeks workout

    Monday - Barbell Bench - warmup set of 12, warmup set of 10 followed by three sets of 8,5,3 with 12 breaths in between them all. I stretch in between each set and after my final set.

    Reverse Grip Flat Bench Same as above

    Incline DB Flys Same as above

    Skull Crushers first set is 12 reps. second set 10 reps followed by a burnout of two sets of ten reps. stretching after

    Squats same as flat bench

    Calf Raises 20,15,10 not following DC style. 3 min break in between sets followed by stretching.


    Wednesday - T Bar Rows Same as flat bench

    EZ Bar Close Grip Curl Same as flat bench

    Deadlifts Same as flat bench

    Preacher Curl first set of 12, second set of 10 followed by a burnout of two sets

    Wide Grip Pullups 2 sets to failure. 4 min rest in between sets


    Friday - Incline DB Same as flat bench

    Dips Same as flat bench

    Sitting Hammer Strength Flys first set of 12, second set of 10, followed my a burnout of two sets

    Reverse Grip Sitting Hammer Strength Extensions Same as flat bench

    Leg Press 3x6


    After I do DC for about 6 weeks, i go to my 4x/week routine to see where my strength really is. Its hard to notice strength gains during DC because you arent really resting in between sets. I like to break from DC every 6 weeks and see where I stand. This routine may not work for everybody, but my body has been responding very very well to it. any questions just post on here.
    That's awesome looks really solid! I honestly have never tried R/P for higher reps like i have setup in my DC workouts but i'm willing to try it. I think i'll benefit a lot from these 14+ rep sets. This will be the ULTIMATE test to see if TUT really works for me or not. I literally cannot wait to do this workout tomorrow, the fact that it will be so hard makes me want to do it even more.
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

    Nope! DC workout A1 starts today leaving right now. With R/P Chest dips i'm probably gonna be adding at least 20lbs to them to hit the rep range i want

    off day for me. my chest workout is tomorrow. the one aspect about DC that nobody really talks about is that, for me at least, when i work out three times a week, i never get burnt out. i always wanna go. when i used to do 4-5x a week, i would get burnt out so easily cause i was going to much. DC keeps my intensity up.

    Holy f***in sh*t! I seriously will never train another way again, in 45 minutes i literally was on the verge of puking which is extremely hard for me to get to. The stretches were the hardest part pain wise but still got 40-45 seconds each stretch. I could have done the workout quicker but i had to figure out my weights first. That was so amazing, i'm definitely going up to 4500 calories now, I'm actually still pumped as i sit here! This is a first for me, I LOVE DC. THE CHALLENGE ASPECT IS ABSOLUTELY GIGANTIC AND I WILL MORE THAN LIKELY NEVER TRAIN ANOTHER WAY AGAIN

    Glad to have ya man! I seriously can see myself gaining like crazy on this program now, The time under tension and weights are just insane. Plus the fact your doing so many different exercises makes it even better.

    DC Training A1 10/4/11
    Duration: 45 Minutes
    Mood: Excited
    Energy: Strong
    Other notes: Body weight at 233Lbs, Didn't do the 2 back movements since i trained back 2 days ago with R/P.
    Lifts
    Chest Dips-
    +55Lbs x 15 R/P *PR* Adding weight next workout
    DC Chest Fly Stretch 30Lbs @ 40-45 Seconds. *OUCH*
    Seated DB Overhead Press-
    50 x 27 R/P *PR* Adding weight next workout
    DC Shoulder Stretch 5th Bolt @ 45 Seconds.
    Close Grip Bench Press in Power-Rack-
    155 x 17 R/P *PR* Adding weight next workout
    DC Tri stretch on Power-Rack hole *easier to control stretch deeper* @ 45 Seconds.

    3 sets/3 PR's

    I didn't do 60 seconds stretching off the first workout because i want to slowly move up there. This workout was so intense i literally almost puked and right now i am absolutely exhausted muscle wise. Pumped up i'm looking HUGE it makes me want to train even harder and more! Body weight is finally moving up so i'll aim for 4200+ calories a day. I should see some epic progress doing DC and just this first workout convinced me, I literally don't want to listen to my MP3 because i like having all 100% of my focus on that 1 set which is fine for me. Next A1 workout should go a lot faster considering now i know my weights.
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me
