    One thing that i just can not grasp is how much protein they are saying you should intake, that is an insane amount

    I did my second workout with dc training yesterday, it was..
    Con curls 40, 6*4*5
    Drag curls (for forearms) 50, straight set of 12
    calves(machine 40lbs)
    Hammies( 130lbs on the leg curl, kept ripping off my leg hair no joke!!)
    squats 135, 8*6*4 ( i could not get my legs to stop shaking from my calves being so incredibley pumped up, in was insane when i wwould take a step i would shake lol.)
    I feel like i am really trying super hard in my workouts and going to the point of failure but the next day i dont feel sore, AT ALL which makes me think i am doing something wrong. i like the training so far though but just not feeling the soreness everyone is ranting about

    Day 3
    Flat bench- 165, 8*3*2 (stretch-95lbs for 60 secs.. i thought my chest was going to rip in two lol)
    Db press- 45, 8*4*4 (I cant really figure out how to do the shoulder stretch)
    Rev grip bench (smythe) 135, 8*5*4 (First time trying these)
    Pull down behind neck- 140, 8*4*2
    BB Bent rows- 95, 12 (60 sec handing stretch, oweee)

    chest felt really good today. will increase the weight on the shoulder press, rev grip bench, and BB bent rows beause i was able to go over the rep range, over all felt pretty good, hoping for some DOMS but no luck yet, chest is feeling a bit shaky right now so keeping my fingers crossed...

    I also I just bought some protein to help meet the crazy amount required for Dc training. Syntha6- Mint chocolate chip, one word DELICOUS!!! i liked the chocolate so i thought i'd give this a go, and I am glad that I did. It taste great!

    P.s. for those who dont know the * in between numbers is the 15 sec pause

    i was wondering if dc training is suppose to be just alot of protien (1.52g *bw) or do you also have to have alot of calories?

    DOMS is overrated. if you're beating your old numbers, you're growing, and that's the reality. i almost never get DOMS anymore, and it doesn't really matter that much. if i'm progressing in weights/reps and gaining weight, i'm accomplishing my goals.

    the shoulder stretch is the same as the bicep stretch with your hand position reversed



    courtesy of imprez. if you're not feeling the stretch, slowly try to stand straight with your arms in the same position.
