    Don't be upset with the results you didn't get from the work you didn't put in.

    I train DC or HIT mostly.

    I love DC. if you're stalling, slow your negatives down a lot. I do 4-5 seconds

    I'm currently doing DC training with a couple of tweaks here and there, but it is the core of my workout. What kind of questions you have I guess?

    As far as results, gotten a lot bigger and a lot faster than with any other one routine I have ever tried before. Also, in and out of the gym a lot quicker. Been able to bulk with EASE while I struggled on others, not to mention the accomplishment feeling once I'm done.

    Have grown, since starting DC about a year ago, +- 15lbs of muscle.

    yeah i think the hardest part for people to convince themselves to switch to dc training is the fact that most people are used to high volume training and they dont want to feel like what theyre doing isnt as good as say dc training haha.. but bla55 whats some of your favorite exercises as far as your routine goes? (the dc part)

    I just hopped in ricks log but didn't comment, but I'm super stoked how many people are getting into dc!

    it seriously changed my whole mindset on training...I even hopped into fst-7 last summer for a while and came running back to DC.

    I don't think it can be reiterated enough that you have to use your mind to put everything into that one set...and stretch of course

    I've read about DC training and there are some things I agree with and a few things I don't.

    I like the compounds, obviously.

    But I do everything with free weights, basically no machines, all dumbbells, bars, etc, which is great because I am free to do it wherever, I'm not tied up to equipment.

    I don't believe you can go all out every training day and not over-train.

    Plus the information is just all over the place online. I like all my training information in one book that is well organized and thought out with scientific research backing it. DC training just doesn't fall into those guidelines. Its just not for me.

    yeah I found that frustrating at the beginning.

    going balls out in the training has never left me feeling overtrained.

    even if you go balls out every training day its really only 1 big set youre doing with each muscle and it gives you enough time to rest and recover before you work that muscle group again, may not be for everyone but i certainly like it

    Recovery is systemic.

    yes, cause people have different work capacities and different recovery abilities. plus there are different parts of the body that need recovery and some are overall (or systemic) or localized.

    systemic meaning taxing on the cns overall, not just the muscle group worked.

    I understand what T bone is saying but I've never had a problem with recovery

    Never had a problem with recovery either. I think people make too much of "over training". The entire point of "cruising" is to prevent that, and it is individual so if you wanna "cruise" every 4-5 weeks so be it.

    I think if I had a few things to say about DC is that to get the best results, strength and size-wise, is to start with light weight and performing high rep ranges.

    You're pushing yourself 110% every session as it is, anyways, so you'll make progress even if you start light. If you start too heavy, you wont be able to squeeze the gains you would normally get out of the program.
