I had no idea what doggcrapp is/was (lol) but it appears to be a low volume high-intensity routine focused on strength gains using a triple-rest-paused set to failure. At your current level of development, you would be better served by a 5x5 or clone thereof since:
- you’re a tad too weak for a high volume routine.
- you’re kinda small to milk a high intensity low-volume routine properly.
Why not focus on allowing yourself to gain weight up to 200-220 over the next year or so and milk the standard 5x5 (with direct arm work, and possibly rotating wide grip shoulder presses with your traditional grip to ensure proper delt development) Also if your heart is set on a lower volume routine focused on strength gains in a moderate rep range, check out Iron Addict’s routines. They incorporate rest-paused sets to failure and everything else.
After today’s seesion, I am DEFINITELY sticking with this intense program. One of my main problems in lifting has been half assing sets and subconsciously telling myself I’ll hit it harder on the next set when really, I should be doing it on the current set. DC has a way of helping me Zone in on that one set and really giving it all I have. Today, I did Incline Smith PRess for Chest, and I have to say, I have never felt that amount of pain in my chest. The stretching is just fucking brutal! THe reason I’m doing this program is not because everyone is saying not too, but because I’ve developed an understanding of listening to my body, and I felt I was ready. I will be posting progress pics too. [/quote]
another good reason you shouldn’t be doing DC yet. If you half assed and couldn’t zone in before DC, there is no way you’ll be doing DC in a any productive manner.
and how did you develop an understanding of listening to your body if you admitted you always half ass your lifts and never work out as hard as you can?
if your only motivation to do DC is because people tell you not to, well, have fun making little to no gains and wasting many hours. At least when people do DC who shouldn’t be, a lot of them get fat. I applaud that because at least it shows they know how to eat well.
5 bucks this guy doesn’t grow an inch becuase hes afraid to eat.
Thib has a program on here that suits you perfectly, its called Training for Newbies, start with part 1, good luck!
