so you are going to replace those two excercises?
no i think I'm gunna give them another go...i haven't been eating enough lately so i think next time around i'll have the cals up and i think i'll beat it
workout 2b...decent workout weights went up but I think I need a week off after this week...i feel very overtrained
incline db curl- 45 x 8-5-3
reverse ez curl- 65 x 14
standing calf raise- 200 x 12
seated leg curl - 150 x 12-7-4
squat- 390 x 6 (hard as hell and coulda went a bit deeper)
smith squat 255 x 16
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?
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
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.
fcuk it...i think i'm just gunna take off till monday but i'm debating starting back on a basic bodybuilding routine (2-3 sets 6-12 reps) to compare it to dc so i can see what i wanna do on cycle
so i've decided that i'm going back to my old routine. Mon Tue Thur Fri off weekends and weds
chest and tri
back and bi's
2-4 exercises each group 2-3 sets to failure and 6-12 reps (lower reps on compounds higher on isolations)
i'll still log if anyone is interested
what ultimately made you stop this?
i just wanna have a comparison before i decide what i wanna do on cycle.
DC ain't for P*ssies that's fo sho. This training style kicks my A$$ but am growing nicely!
