I absolutely love it, but found it to not be best for cutting, so I dropped it for now. I'll be back on DC in the fall.
Lots of threads on DC training here. You should check out Intense Muscle as well (the dogg pound forum).

Best advice i can give someone starting DC is make sure you ACTUALLY understand the program, and are doing it correctly. It seems like most people that don't do well on it, aren't even doing it correctly, or are bastardizing it in some way.

Im still on a bulk, currently 225 at about 12%. I understand the program, just a bit foggy on the stretching. My biggest problem i have found is completing day one (chest shoulders tris bw and bt) in a timely manner, and i train VERY hard. Im considering making it a three day split.

If i am doing smith incline i may do 135 x 10, 185x 6, 225 x 6, 275 x 1(just to get the feel for the weight), then do my set.

Only you know if it is too much warm-up. You dont wanna get hurt.. If you feel warmed up, then it is enough.
After chest if i was doing standing press, id do 135 x 10, 155 x 6/7, then do my set.

agree....DC is awesome. And the lifting program DOES NOT determine best for cutting/bulking.....YOUR DIET / CARDIO determines this. Please. If you are not ready to basically pass out on some of your days in the gym, do not attempt this program. Im telling ya 225 x 23 on squat is no joke (may not be alot to some people, but it is for me).
Not everything is RP'd.
Beat the book everytime your particular exercise rolls around again.

Hhmmm... never thought of moving the reps up like that. Might be something I can work with. I'm going to run with this "standard" training for a bit more, just cause I've neglected a lot of parts in the last 6 months or so, but might hop back on. We'll see how it goes.
I also forgot to mention I train in the morning in a fasted state while cutting. DC is brutal when fasted.

Yeah, I rock 4 scoops of Xtend and 1 scoop of bulk BCAA's, then when I'm done I have a post workout shake with whey, waxy maize and p-slin.
I found the only way I could complete a DC workout in a fasted state was to do all of my stretches at the very end of the workout.
