Do you guys count the bar in those weights or just the plates alone? What is the standard method of listing them?
08-15-2007, 12:17 PM
counting the bar (45lbs for the barbell and 25 for the ez curl) is the standard method in listing weights...
08-15-2007, 05:21 PM

im subbed bro. Im starting DC too. I need to learn more tho but im easing my way into it. I might have alot of questions haha.

Nice log. Very soon you would've maxed out many of the hammer strength machines at your gym. But that's just DC training

i need to get better examples of extreme stretching and get my rep ranges and counts down. I basically did two workouts DCish, i just concentrate on negs and go slow on negs. Sometimes i do static holds or Rest Pause, ill usually just stretch the muscle for a long time after and as hard as i can but i dont think im doing it the DC way....That is basically what i need to brush up on. What do your days look like, 2 on 1 off? I was thinking 2 on 1 off 2 on 2 off then repeat.

Brutal, he's speaking the truth. This is what I have found and needed more time off to recoup.
That picture doesn't work for me for some reason can you upload it here? It is possible to attach it to a post.

completed workout 2b...good workout weight went up and I look like I'm getting more thick and dense
Incline Db Curl- 40 x 10-5-3
Reverse Ez Curl- 60 x 15
Standing Calve Raise- 180 x 12
Seated Leg Curl- 135 x 12-7-5
BB Squat- 370 x 7
Smith Squat - 225x20
stretch (finally got the leg stretch down and it fcukin hurts)
08-21-2007, 05:31 AM
so the incline db curls are rest pause
rev ez curl is straight set
calve raise is straight set
leg curls are rest paused
squats straight set?
smiths for widowmaker
1.are all reps focused on slow negatives, or which ones are and arent?
2. as far as the rest pause for leg curls i thought the next set is about half the prior, i dont follow that exact either but are you going to failure on each rest pause?
3. what kind of reps are you doing for the both squats?
08-21-2007, 01:47 PM
1. everything is a controlled negative but I don't count. DC said he regrets telling ppl to do a 6-10 sec negative. I just focus on keeping it controlled. i think heavy squats, rows, and deads aren't as slow as they should be but for those i just go at my own pace.
2. for some reason on leg curls i end up getting a lot of reps bc i don't use very heavy weight and my hams respond well to higher reps. i guess my hams recover faster than my other body parts? but dc says he wants almost 30 reps RP total for hams so it works out
3. squats are done 4-8 reps...hacks and leg presses are done 6-10 reps and i do the 20 repper for every exercise
everything is rest paused except quads, back thickness, calves, forearms and stiffleg deads.

Can you explain what "rest- paused" clearly means, this phrase causes me some confusion though I believe I have been doing it.
Much Love and nice log!
08-21-2007, 09:40 PM
rest-paused in this context (which is the only way I've heard it used) is take a set to failure (usually 8-10 reps), then rack the weight, then take 12-15 deep breaths and do another set right away to failure(usually is about half of the previous set), then repeat one more time (12-15 breathes, then another set)
hope that helps

Good log so far. Keep up the good work!
To the other people wanting to learn about DC. Read as much as you can, and ask questions. Because if you are not doing it right, you are not doing DC. I see allot of people doing weird ****, that goes against allot of what he says, or just doing it wrong, and then wonder why they are not getting the results others are getting.. It is better to have it laid down right before you even get into it.

You "should" feel it. Don't forget the extreme fascia stretching which is a large part of this
This DC training grinds me to the bone, but maybe just cause I'm noob It's hardcore.
Intensity is what you make it? try heavier weights with slower TUT?
