I’ve just started training after the doggcrapp system. My first system was HIT with a 3-split, then HIT with a 4-split going to positive failure, then a short period with Wendler when I switched to a strength focus last fall. Wendler was too boring tho, so I switched again to a self-made system of two squat days, two bench press days and a single dead lift day a week, one day being max effort and the other being technique, never going to failure. This worked very well for a year and my lifts all went up nicely (a little more than 45 pounds each on a 5x5, while my 1rms sky rocketed). My size hasn’t changed much though (which was expected), but I do have to buy most shirts a size bigger than before and pants as well. I’m at roughly 200 pounds, 5,11" and have a total of 1188.
Now I think it’s time to start gaining some size again! I’ve had two work outs and I must say it’s really though. I go to technical failure and I’ve added a squat instead of leg press (having only two leg exercises) and do barbell bench presses instead of dumb bell, both to stay closer to powerlifting.
Therefore I’m curious about any of yours experiences with doggcrapp and any advice you can offer now you know my history of training and level.
