Thread: first day of dc

dc progress reports
went **** well and i love it.
chest-strong because i did it first
delts-slightly less strength, went from d.b. mil 80's for 8 on shoulder only days to 75's for 8 last night, not bad
tris-way stronger, and very powerful, by far less fatigued after 2 working sets as opposed to doing tris after 6 working sets of shoulders
b.b row-went from 185-10 on back days to 180 for 5 then i had to imm. switch to 170 and got 5 more reps, not too bad
lat pull down-much stronger, not as fatigued as it usually is when i do it for a back day
extreme stretching hurts so good. i am feeling very positive about dc
also, i am a little sore today, nothing like after a higher volume workout. i feel that it is realitic that i will be good to go for the next upper body workout.
my body was in huge shock after that workout too. i felt pretty messed up. it was a huge shock to tear down everymuscle in my upperbody instead of the 1 or 2 muscle a day thing.
anyone else have any results they would like to discuss from dc program?
i forgot to add, i am doing this naturally and am still natural.

i made this thread because it answers many questions that i had before starting dc and i will continue to update it.

Did you stop DC already?? Im anxious to find out how its going. I wanted to try it but im stuck on my old ways.
10-28-2004, 10:21 PM #5
NO MAN, its going fabulous. I have been recovered for every workout which was my main concern. I feel as if i am getting bigger already, i am about to finish my second week. The test comes next week when i repeat the the 2 weeks and see if my strength is going up. i will definately let you know if i am any stronger for my 3rd week nexzt week

DC is great as long as you can go into it with a clear head and understand that your old way of training may not have been the best way for you.

ok, todat was my the second time i did workout A. FIrst off all, when i went into dc, i did not plan to cut, but i decided to cut at the end of last week. so i have already lost alot of weight coming into this workout.
Bench press was down 1 rep
d.b. mil press is up 1 rep
skul crushers, i added 5 pounds and got 13 reps where i got 12 reps at 5 pounds less the last time
b.b row. put on 5 pounds and tied reps of previous, so it went up
lat pull down, up 2 reps
alll this while drropping about 5-10 pounds
11-04-2004, 10:20 PM #8
Ok, i am now a firm believer that 1 set is not only enough, but possibly the best way to grow. Even though i am already down 10 pounds in body weight, the second time i performed squats i increased my poundage by 2 reps.
it is also my opinion the the whole bench being down by a rep last work out is purely a mental defeat.
11-06-2004, 08:32 PM #9
today on 11-6, was my 2nd time around for upperbody 2 workout.
b.b incl-up 3 reps
hammer time d.b. mil-up 5 reps
close grip bench-up 1 rep
lat pulls-up 1 rep
d.b. rows-for some reason, i did somthin else last time, oops.
also, this week, i started using rest pause. recovery is still kick ass. even with rest pauses, i have more than enough time to recover which was one of my concerns. again, i am now a firm believer in this program, extreme stretching and esp 1 set to grow.
well, i am outa here for tonight.
11-06-2004, 11:35 PM #10
i am soooo hightt righta nosw
11-09-2004, 10:47 PM #11
ok, today was my second workout with the leg press and b.b curl, which are the only muscles worth mentioning really today
leg press-up 8 reps (when ever i say i am up reps, i am NOT including rest pause by the way)
b.b curl- got 10 reps last time, upped the weight 5 pounds, got 9 reps
d.b. hanmmer culs-got 12 reps last time, went to the very next set of d.b's, 5 pounds more per hand, and got 10
also, i have decided not to do rest pause for bicepts. they are getting stronger without them and it with an upperbody workout just 1 day away, i cant afford to have sore bis for tat workout

We do not RP Quads, do 2 working sets, 1 heavy then 1 heavier set...
11-10-2004, 02:23 PM #13Originally Posted by In-Human
To me, that is only 1 set
also, i think dc doesnt do rest pauses for quads for safety reasons. i have had a spotter and have been increasing poundage quite nicely with rest pauses.
in case i am wrong about the safety thing, what is the official reason he does not restpause quads?
11-10-2004, 02:26 PM #14
Your quads must be swole, because that is quit a bit of weight?

I'm doing DC training and I gain every single workout. I feel like I'm constantly growing. I'll mention that I'm also on 500mg test e per week. I'm very curious to see if I still make gains after the cycle is over. I rest pause legs b/c I have a bad back and my knees aren't that good so I keep the weights light and I focus more on super strict reps to increase intensity. I am going to try and slowly raise weights on hack squats and leg presses, but that didn't work with regular squats. I can not do those anymore, not worth injuring my back and not being able to train at all.

My favorite thing about DC training is that I feel it has brought me back to the fundamentals. DC training is not about lifting weights. Its about training with weights. The weights are only a means to an end. Many people become obssessed with weight and their form becomes so sloppy that they aren't even working out the intended muscle. I see it every day in my gym.

11-11-2004, 11:17 AM #19
well boys, the gym is closed today, so regrettably, i must skip upperbody workout c, which really pisses me off.
11-11-2004, 11:20 AM #20
this is such nonsense still, i can ****ing kill somone today.
i could use the day off, i do feel out of it today, but stilll, i hate to miss a dc workout, it throws everyting off. i have to skip over it and come back to it a week or so from now
11-11-2004, 11:35 AM #21

2nd time at work out e
hammertime d.b. bench-up 1 rep
b.b. mil- went up 5 pounds, 1 less rep than last time, i guess you can call that progress
d.b. hammertime skulls-went to the next set of dumbells, and down 3 reps,
wide grip pullups, i still cant do 1. now , i can do about 75% of one lol
deadlift-up 2 reps
11-15-2004, 01:25 PM #24
iron are you using rest/pause sets or just straight sets?
11-15-2004, 03:05 PM #25
i started using rest pause sets in week 3 of dc to start the second time around. i use rest pause for everyting (even squats and leg press) except bicepts. recovery is great
11-15-2004, 03:12 PM #26
and you find you're making good results?
11-15-2004, 07:52 PM #27
well take a look at my strength gains. and this is all while trimmin down. i am not all out cutting, but i loosing fat at a descently rapid rate.
11-15-2004, 07:53 PM #28
start reading at post number 7
i would say over all, its working great right now. i think will be my 5 th week, again, it is kind of cruddy that i am trimming now, so i wont see the true potential of dc, but in about a month or 2, i will then know
i strongly advise doing this program

warm up...stretch...some extensions, and one warm up set of 15 reps in the rack...then...
work set- 315 for 12
work set- 335 for 10
heavy set- 405 for 6-8
heavest set- 465 for 3-4
get the idea...warmup, 2 working sets, then go alot heavier, then extremely heavy on your last
11-16-2004, 05:30 PM #32
i did not know that is how dc did quads. i have been rest pausing on squats and legpresses, and it has been working extremely well. thank you for clarifying that for me, but i thknk i may stick to what has been working for me.
