    What is your view on the DC Training






    A couple of months ago I asked about DC training in Training section, but got 2 or 3 replies. I decided to ask again in the Anabolic Zone as I want some input from the big boys.

    Most of you should be familiar with doggcrap workout and his blast and cruise approach (5-8 weeks on followed by 2-3 weeks off / cruise).


    What is your opinion on this low volume workout?
    Do you find it more beneficial than high volume, lets say 4 exercises per muscle group approach?

    Its for advanced trainers. Very easy to get injured trying to beat the log book. It works but many guys that train that way end up getting hurt.

    I tried it once for half years... Following the diet was hard (2 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight and no carbs after 6) but I liked the training. Strength increased a lot.. I was natty when I tried it and now when I think about it, I was no where advanced enough to train that way - but I don't regret it. It was when I learnt how to train legs. Widowmaker sets are killers.

    i still do the rest pause sets, but i am really liking john meadows style of training. I have never had lines in my quads EVER but would squat 500lbs. Now my squat is even higher and my legs are shredded year round.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I will look into john meadows training.

    I felt like I plateaued on standard bodybuilding split, I was be doing 16-20 sets per muscle group, was stuck on the same weight for weeks at a time. I always logged every workout and each week I either tried to squeeze 1 more rep or increase the weight by 5 lbs.

    I have been doing DC training for 4 months now. 5-8 weeks blast where I would train every other day, followed by 2-3 weeks cruise periods where I would train once every 3-4 days.
    I haven't gained much size yet, but I am definitely improving my lifts.
    I am prone to injuries hence I decided to use a high rep range. 10-18 reps for the first set, then 8-10 and 2-6 for the rest paused sets, each set until total muscle failure.

    Also once every few weeks I like to do a bit of power-lifting and strongman stuff (deadlift, log press, atlas stones, farmers walk etc.) I also gained a lot of strength on those lifts, which is very surprising considering I only do them 1ce every 3-4 weeks.

    Thanks Jay_Steel it looks intense!

    Besides being stronger than before may I add that nowadays I spend much less time at the gym doing fewer sets yet I am much more sore the day after. Sometimes I am forced to take 2 days of inbetween workouts. Pecks and hamstrings suffer the most.
    Current workout DC training which consist of 2-3 quick warm up sets, 1 working set followed by 2 rest paused sets per muscle group.
    Previous workout standard bodybuilding split which consisted of 3 exercises per muscle group, a 2-3 warm up sets followed by 3-4 straight sets of 8-12 reps, last exercise with drop sets or forced negatives.
