    i'm subbing incline bb for flat hammer and db shoulder press for smith behind the neck today...i just find this too hard to push myself with free weights.

    also any experienced DCers!!!!!!!!!...i've done a 6 week blast...should i just take a week off (bc i need to) or cruise and stick with easier exercises for 2 weeks?

    I tell ya i feel ya there brotha... I have been blasting for like 16 weeks i believe, and i am ****ING SHOT.. lol.. Today i was just not there at all mentally in the gym. And strength was ****. I have also been dieting for about 6 of those weeks, and i am starting to crave more cals, and my body is just saying to take it easy.

    What i am going to do is just go in and do 1 straight set for each body part, still 3 days a week. I am going to do different excersises then i normally do, not go to failure, probally go a good deal lighter on the weights, and keep my rep range higher. Just listen to your body.

    i think most of my pain comes from doing 2 things.

    1. something i havent done in awhile or never
    2. doing high rep db movements since you guys said i gotta try to do 15-25reps first set those really hit the joints i think.

    so i just kinda fcked around in the gym today...still rest paused to failure but my CNS is totally shot...my sleep patern and the fact that ive been dieting for the past 6 weeks also played a part

    i think i'm just gunna take off till monday or wednesday and start up again. prob do a 4 week blast 2 week cruise then just blast with the 3 way split when i get on cycle.

    i've been 10 weeks without a week off and before my 6 weeks on DC I trained 3 on 1 off so i'm pretty shot and i havent been eating like an animal so the cals will be upped next time around

    3 way split? Def. take a break. I dont mind taking a week off after a long training run.

    The general idea is to cruise before you overtrain so much that you absolutely have to cruise. That way you get to blast again sooner rather than later.

    Go ahead and start your cruise now.

    chest and tris today...good workout, good pump

    incline bb- 225 x 8 , 225x 7 x2
    chest press machine(the one where u have to push the bar w ur feet to get started) 180x 12, 210x10 x 2
    incline bench cable flye- 37.5x12 32.5 x 12
    olympic bar skullcrusher - 3 sets of 8 w 115
    v bar cable pushdown- 2 sets of 12 w 80
    one arm reverse pushdown - 25x12

    i am liking this better than DC bc i feel it is safer. i think the chest and back stretches are dangerous. also i really don't like doing singles and doubles for my last rest-pause set on a machine or at all for that matter.

    i may do one more DC blast in a month or so if i don't get much strength out of this routine.

    cool keep us updated.

    DC really is a great thing if 2 peeps are doing it together. otherwise it really stinks to always find a spotter on your 15th breath haha
