Bando's Log - Anabolic Dreams and PR Screams
« on: March 24, 2012, 02:54:56 PM »
 The philosophy of DC training is that by growing stronger, you necessarily grow bigger. There is only 1 working set per bodypart with as many warmup sets as you need. The focus is on the decline or decentric portion of the lift, which should be about 6 seconds. The working set is a rest/pause, so you crank out as many reps as you can,  rest for 12-15 breaths, repeat until you canít do another rep, repeat until no more reps are possible.  At that point you do a static hold with the weight until that fails. By doing only 1 lift per badypart allows you to recuperate enough to hit that bodypart again as soon as 2 days later (with a different lift.) I began this on January 2 this year and have certainly seen strength gains. The program doesnít call for ab or trap work, but I work those in, doing traps with shoulders and a few sets of abs at the end of every other workout or so.

for more see:

It looks like this:

Day one:

 Chest
 Shoulders
 Triceps
 Back width
 Back thickness
 
 Day two:

 Biceps
 Forearms
 Calves
 Hamstrings
 Quads
 
 Day three:

Repeat Day 1, but with all different moves
 
 Day four:

Repeat Day 2 but with all different moves

Day 5:

Repeat day 1 but with all different moves not used day 1 or 3

Day 6:

Repeat Day 2 with different lifts not used in day 2 or 4

Day 7

Repeat cycle, working set has to beat weight and/or reps achieved in day 1 or that lift gets removed from the routine.

So enough chatter, letís get to work, shall we?  ;D

Eccentric = the "relaxation" phase, i.e. the negative part of a lift (Downward motion during bench press)
Concentric = the contraction phase, i.e. the positive part of the lift (upward motion during bench press)

I'm too OCD to not post that, sorry, don't mean to be condescending or anything, looks like a great program, but there's something wrong with my brain that won't let that go.

Talk about the Tendonitis Curls your PT recommended, interested in what that is...

decentric = eccentric, gotcha.

The curls for my bicep tendonitis are eccentric DB Curls for 12 - 15 reps. So on the concentric motion I grab the weight or my wrist with the other hand and pull it up, but let the affected arm do all the work fighting gravity for the eccentric portion. I do 3 sets in a seated concentration curl position, one with wrist the standard way, one hammer grip and one with my palm facing down (this KILLS). Hard stretch/hold of the affected area between each set.

That sounds like it would be really effective on a cable machine where there's less "pivot point" where the elbow joint is supporting the load against gravity.

meh. I don't like visitors in my office without setting up a meeting. The fact that I only keep my chair in there and am constantly farting helps my cause.
