Just finished my first “volume day” of C Dub’s “Diverstity for Hypertrophy” method and in the interest of hearing from other victims of this I would like to summarize the first week so far…
Moday, Tuesday and Wednesday:
Heavy days, 8 sets of 5 reps. Poundages were HUGE! My training partner (that is a “Gay” sounding term is it not?) Brian (and that is a “Gay” sounding name too, of course not as bad as “Bruce” but still… let’s call him “B”) “B” and I had discussions similiar to this one every day:
Me: Holy shit this is heavy.
B: Yes it is.
Me: Can you believe how heavy this is?
B: It is very heavy, yes.
Me: Wow! this really is heavy.
Needless to say, there was much grunting, straining and quite frankly a TON of chest puffing would follow the days session. We were BLOWING AWAY our “old” heavy day poundages. The challenge of a totaly reworked program and a new philosophy was like gas on a fire.
We were primed to go Baby!
Suffering from WHOLE BODY DOMS our “pregame” chat had us looking forward to the “easy” day of 2 sets of 40 reps.
Descending sets, flushing techniques and “to failure” have nothing on this. Nothing. Had I been wearing a harness, codpiece and a collar I would have thought the Marquis De Sade himself had kidnapped me and was trying to break me. PAINPAINPAIN.
Never in my life have I suffered through more self-inflicted pain although my wedding day comes to mind and of course I did watch The Anna Nichole Show Nichole Show once but other than that, nothing.
In the interest of correcting some errors that have somehow eluded our brilliant T-Mag staffers, I submit the “corrected” version of Chads summary that appears below his articles here:
Chad Waterbury is a strength and conditioning coach with Bachelor of Science degrees in Human Biology and Physical Sciencehis minor while in school was the torture of the primate specimens with an eye to application on humans. Currently, he’s studying Graduate work in Physiology at the University of Arizonaand devising new and painful methods of inflicting pain on those who are brave enough to follow his advice “HeHe they actaully did it”, is a phrase that Chad utters many times a day . He operates his company, Chad Waterbury Strength & Conditioning and S&M (mostly “S”), in Tucson, AZ, where his clientele consists of members of military special forces units, athletes, professionals, non-athletes and dominatrixes who have dificult clients who are unable to enjoy “normal” levels of pain and need the “good stuff” seeking exceptional physical performance and development. You can contact him through his website, chadwaterbury.com. or you can just inquire down at the local chapter of “Your pain is our Pleasure” house of kink
Thank You Chad.
