I train out of my garage, and don’t have any machines. I do however have a a trap bar and safety squat bar, along with bands, chains, boxes of various heights, blast straps, a sled, and some other toys that can change lifts around for the sake of variety, along with all the staples of a home gym (powerrack, barbells, tons of plates, adjustable dumbbells, bench). I was curious if anyone else has trained this way, or thinks this way could work, or if machines are absolutely necessary to run the program.
Hey all, if this would be better posted in the DC training thread, let me know and I’ll post it there. I thought it might warrant a separate thread.
I’ve been training heavily for a few years, mainly focused on powerlifting. I decided to finally trim some fat I had put on, and have gone from 210 to 195 at 5’9, with a goal of leaning up a little more. After that, I want to put on some quality mass, and was planning on using DC.
I haven’t taken the competition lifts for a heavy single in a long time, but my best gym numbers are
Bench (touch and go): 365
All raw, belt on squat only
