    Smile DC Training & Lean Muscle Gain??


    Hi Everyone,

    I was hoping to get some input on training. I have entered a lean muscle gain comp at work over 10 weeks. I'm 2 weeks in and have gained 1.1 pounds of lean muscle. I switched to DC style training today. Workout looked like this

    5 min Cross trainier warm up
    Incline Bench Press (3 warm up sets) then 12,8,5 @110 (20 sec static hold)
    Hanging Clean & Press (2 warm up sets) then 12,7,7@66 (20 sec static hold)
    Dips 8,6,4@ BW (only 12 sec static hold)
    Wide grip chins 4,4,2@ BW (20 sec static hold)
    T-Bar Row 12,10.8@132 (20 sec static hold)
    Stretching
    10 min tread mill (5min @10% incline) 7kph

    My question is, is 1.1 per 2 weeks a normal amount to gain and how does everyone rate DC training for growth??
