    Question DC training(hamstrings)


    Sumo deadlift
    Stiff leg deadlift
    Good morning

    Do I do straight sets or rest pause on these hamstring exercises?

    You would straight set the last 2. Sumo deadlifts are generally not a recommended ham exercise as your gluts are so involved in leveraging the weight. As lame as it sounds, you might be better off doing some variation of a curl.

    If you read his articles and theory behind his work out, it will explain that the bigger more intense exercises, such as squat and dead lift, he does not recommend doing a rest pause set due to the intensity being more likely to do harm.

    deadlift is back thickness exercise. try sumo press for hams, very good exercise
    Noob looking for alot of guidance
    I've got a hold of some omnadren 250(is sustanon better?) and I'm pretty much clueless about steroids. All i know about it is that it easily aromatizes and it holds alot of water

    i agree.

    go with stiff leggs and good mornings and toss in a day with a lying ham curl - you could rest pause those if you want. I'll switch it up between a RP and a straight set of 15. You can challenge yourself with either.

    The last I tried sumo press I felt more pressure and strain in my hip flexors and upper thigh instead of hams... doing it wrong maybe?
