    DC Training


    Alright so I have been researching the whole DC training method for about a month now and I figured id give it a shot. For two weeks i will lift Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, with the weekends for recovery. The next two weeks I will take it Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to switch it up and take it a little easier.

    The supps I will be on is:
    Creatine mono
    Glutamine
    Jacked
    and of course protein powder.

    Eating a little above maintence which is around 3100 cals.

    Today was my first workout which went like this:

    Bench: Warm up with 135X20, 155X15, 185X10. 225X8,6,4 Rest Paused

    Military Press: Warm up with BarX30, 95X15, 105X15. 115X12,8,8 Rest Paused

    Skull Crushers: Warmup with 55X20, 65X15. 85X12,8,6 Rest Paused

    Pullups: Warmup 3X8 Bodyweight. BW+10lbsX8,6,6 Rest Paused

    Deadlifts: Warmup 185X10, 225X10. 265X20 Straight Set

    Stretch

    Didn't hit my rep range on some lifts, but hey I had to start somewhere. Will post pics soon

    Should be fun. I like DC, but seem to be doing better overall on a 4 day split now.

    Yeah, the problem to me mostly was that I am tired of dealing with rotating bulk/cut cycles. DC is great on a bulk, but at 42 years old sucks ass on a cut. Recovery became horrible. For me even just recomping on DC is hard without raising my androgen levels.

    Love DC style training. One idea Dusty..you might want to cut down on some of the warm up numbers. Like for chest do 135x15 155x5 185x3 then the 225 DC set. Just a thought big man!

    No doubt. You will need to get a feel for this workout. I just think you might be expending too much energy on the warm ups and not leaving enough for the working set. Keep at it Dusty.

    Woke up this morning and hit the insanity dvds for my cardio, then about an hour later went to the gym.

    Todays workout was ehh. Still getting used to not doing as many excercises per body part. Went a little like this

    Biceps: Standing Alt. Curls; couple of warm up sets then 65's RP for 22 total

    Forearms: Forearm Curls; slight warm up then 95 for a straight set of 20 then a 20 sec hold

    Calves: Standing toe raises; 2 warm up sets with 200(on leg sled) then straight set of 20 with 400 and a 20 sec negative set

    Hamstrings: Leg curl; Warm up with 70 and 80 then 95 RP for a total of 22.

    Quads: Squats; Warm up with 135 and 225 then 245 RP for a total of 24.

    And of course stretched at the end. Kinda felt like a pu**y doin that little weight on legs. I didnt wanna be sore but next time im sayin f*** it and goin all out.

    Looks good Dusty. The weights need to go up on most of your lifts. The Biceps could go up so total RP number is around 15. Forearms are increased if a straight set of 20 reps is reached. The calves are a straight set of 12 where at rep 8 you are praying for death. You also do a good pause at the bottom of each rep. Hamstrings are looking like they can go up as well. I go to 20 total and increase when there. Squats are a whole other animal. You warm up and then do one heavy ass set where 6-8 reps is all you can get. When 8 is easy then the weight goes up. Follow this up after a 2-3 minute rest with a backoff set of 20 reps(widowmaker) with a weight that seems impossible when 15 is reached. You do not rest pause squats. Keep pounding it champ!!

    I've been rocking it for about 2 years now. I've sort of bastardized it though for my tastes as far as the body part/day schedule. I stuck to the format for the first year and then started switching things up. My age had something to do with the switch though. You are young so no problems there. Keep the log book and beat it everytime!!

    I cruise about every 6 weeks. You being younger would probably mean you could go about 8 weeks. You have to give your CNS and joints,tendons a sort of recoup period. During this week or sometimes even 2 weeks off I usually will just do cardio and light weight sets. When I come back, for the first week I go to the weights I finished with before but don't rest pause them. So for instance, if my chest set was say 8-4-2 I would use that same weight but do 1 set of like 5 reps. The next week is back to full DC.

    Woke up a little late this morning, but still got the insanity cardio in. Thank god it was a recovery day. About thirty minutes after I went to the gym to hit it up.

    Chest: BB Incline; Warm up with 135 and 155 then 225 RP for 6,4,3. I felt a little spent on chest already so I felt incredibly weak.

    Shoulders: Arnold Press; Warm up with 35's and 55's then 80 RP for 6,4,4

    Triceps: Dips (not bench dips); 2 warm up sets with BW then 3 sets of 8 with a 25lb dumbell. Definately need to go up on these. Didnt really know my capabilities there.

    Back Width: Lat Pulls; Warm up with 150 and 160 then a straight set of 20 with 195.

    Back Thickness: Low Cable Rows; 2 sets of 160, Then another set of 195 by 20 with 20 sec hold.
    (the gym i workout at has a very sh**ty machine. Might just skip the machines all together next time)

    At the end I stretched then did abs.

    x2

    Almost as soon as I dropped the calories I was overtraining. Next cut I will just drop all the rest pausing and negatives.

    Damn Dusty...80lbs on Arnolds That is smoking!! The workout has some things that need to be altered. The Dips are not straight setted. These get the DC rest pause. The Back Width and Back Thick exercises do as well except for the Back Thick exercises: Dead lift,BB rows,Standing T-Bars. These are done with one very heavy set of 6-8 then a backoff set of 12 reps. When 8 gets easy then increase the weight. Same for when the backoff of 12 gets easy. Your back looks very strong so your weights are going to jump tremendously. Right now you can do a straight set of 20 with 195 on pulldowns. To bring this into the 6-8 rep range for the first rest pause set means quite a jump in weight. Let's see what happens big D!!

    I quickly read up on DC training as it has become quite popular.
    If I were to change anything in it though it would be to pre-emptively alternate the 3 exercises each workout rather than waiting for a platue to happen. So as to prevent detraining.

    You use 3 different exercises for a muscle group in each blast period.

    As for the dips I didnt mean I straight setted it. Sorry for the confusion. I attempted to RP them but I went way to light. Again, thanks for the advice

    But arnt they alternated each month or whenever you hit a wall?
    If you havent done an exercise in a month your not gonna be trained for it especially with heavy weight hence the initial gains, I believe in alternating the exercises each workout as to keep the body trained for that movement and allow proper muscle stimulation without having the CNS constantly be bombarded by the same movement.

    This would be a blast for my chest...A1 Incline BB,A2 Flat BB,A3 Decline BB. On the 3 day split then on Monday it would be A1,Friday would be A2,next Wednesday is A3,and then A1 comes back and you have to beat what you did the last time.

    T Bar Row: Warm up with 90 and 135 then RP with 180 for 8,5,4

    Stretched.

    Only did a fit test today for cardio so had a light day of it. The approach im starting to take to this workout is thinking of a weight I can do, then add about ten pounds to that. So far, im loving this workout.

    Numbers are big Dusty. The bolded stuff is what can be changed. You can rest pause the pullups and I would add weight with a belt to those. The T-bar is something that is not rest paused...back safety. Just do one very heavy set..you would probably increase what you did to like 195 so 6-8 would be a maybe. Then rest 1-2 minutes and do a backoff set of 12 with a weight that has you working like hell to get 12. All good bubba!!

    Pretty boring actually...multi vit,fishoil,anti-oxidant,protein powder,pre workout of some form(ASGT now),Protocol intra,and lots of food. That's the normal routine. I try different things every now and then.

    Are you doing all stretches at the end? I've found it feels a little better to stretch the body part after all the direct work for it is over, before moving to the next body part

    Yes I stretch after I complete the whole workout. On the upper body days I will do more of a static stretch but on lower body dominate days I like to dynamic stretch. And thank God for recovery days. My lower body is cooked. Doin Insanity this morning was like pulling teeth.

    Granted, I am alot older but you have to be careful with going to crazy on the cardio. DC training taxes your body pretty hard by itself so pounding it with a strenuous cardio session could put you into overtraining. Just a thought Dusty.

    Looks great Dusty. Weights moving up on a couple next time. You do know you get about a 2 minute rest between the heavy squat set and the 20 rep widowmaker attempt?
