    Bodybuilding programs to compliment DC


    Ive been on DC for a little over a year now. Several years of strength training before that. But I have never actually been on a pure bodybuilding program before. In fact I know little about bodybuilding. Other than hypertrophy being the key and approx 12 reps etc. I've never found DC to pack on mass much even with eating a lot. That's may be just me. Also my joints need a rest anyways. So I figured let's give a pure bodybuilding program a try for a while. I do well at diligently following a guide to the letter and tailoring only when necessary. So if you guys have any very detailed guides to throw my way that would be great. I'm 28 5'5" 170 lbs if that helps. Thanks

    Dogcrapp training is for bodybuilders..... If you can't gain on it then you aren't experienced enough to he running it. I've seen great gains from it, clean diet and cardio on off days.

    That's what they say. But I've seen strength gains but not much in weight. I went from 164 to 172 in about a year. Some of that is definitely fat. In either even my joints could still use a rest.

    how's your diet? you can be on a great program, but without enough food you wont gain much.

    here is a tip, if you are trying to keep that 6 pack and eating only a few hundred calories over what you need, then double that. and not just over, double what you eat everyday.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    I usually eat about 2500 to 3000 cals on working days. I stopped counting for the most part and just try to make sure I have at least 1.5 grams pro per lb. It's more than that but I use that as a starting. With a 40/40/20 styled diet. I use IF as the eating schedule and I cycle off carbs on off days. Sundays I WAS doing a carb refeed but I may make that a carb off day too. My working days usually look like this. I wake up slam a protein shake and a pwd. Hit the gym. When I'm done I immediately cram down some fast digesting carbs. I usually use low fat pop tarts but I've been using Nutragrain bars since they were on sale. Then I drink another protein shake. I go home make chicken and brown rice. Usually 24 Oz of chicken and about a cup and a half of rice. Later on in the day I'll have a couple of servings of natty pb. Off days is lean 90/10 beef with some cheddar and some pb. You get the gyst

    I would say actually count out your macros, carbs are anabolic, its best to be eating 300g+ (depending on how your body handles them) so you can utilize the power of carbs. If youre not gaining weight, or going very slowly, I would say it is that you are not eating enough, diet is 99% always the issue.

    I've gained weight I just feel it's more fat than muscle. But even that hasn't been much


    I think I should clarify. I'm not saying DC doesn't work. I think it's awesome and I love it. I just wanna take a break from it. DC to my understanding is a strength/bodybuilding hybrid. I'm interested in trying just a pure bodybuilding routine for a break. Mostly just for my joints as I've stated. Some higher reps ya know

    You're doing IF....enough said. John Meadows had an article on it showing it's inability to be able I provide athletes what they need to grow.

    DC is a LIFESTYLE. It's great for mass if you're following everything

    Took everyone's advice to heart. Been staying off IF for a while. Liking it so far. Still gained a bit of fat though. But I guess that's that's to. Be expected. Otherwise not bad. More energy at the lifts which is nice.

    From everything I've gathered from IF is, it's great protocol to stay lean but to add mass it's painstakingly slow and not very effective.

    Once my competition days are past me it's something I may do. My work schedule works out perfect for it.
