I've done it, variations of it and such. It has a LOT of good principles. Basically, I love the fact that it's driven home the importance of keeping a log book and striving for progressive overload. In my opinion (and science's opinion as well) progressive overload is the key to muscle hypertrophy.
The stretches are okay, I would certainly recommend them if they can be done comfortably (ie, the chest fly stretch hurts my shoulders). I think the potential is there for growth, but its something that you'd probably have to do a lot of to reap any real benefit (ie, stretching for 1 minute after a work set probably isn't doing much. But if you trained legs in the morning and kept doing the extreme stretches on your legs throughout the rest of the day, there may be benefit.)
I gota agree with IS, here. Progressive overload, frequency, intensity and tracking progress should all be part of a program. However, there are a lot of flaws with this training and often times doing rest pause sets to failure can lead to overtraining for the natural athlete. I think the extreme stretching is pointless. You would be better off doing "regular" stretches later on that night after a nice hot shower.
Can someone link a site with a solid DC program breakdown? I'm interested in it...i used Max-Ot in the past with pretty good results. I'd like to try this
for someone like me, DC is bad, not enough reps
if you got joint probs etc, more reps 10+ is great, with weight you can handle
helps keep the joints strengthened
too little reps, and heavy weight will eventually fuck your bones/joints up
heavy weights dont really fuck your joints, it poor technique that will cause problems, your muscles should keep the majority of stress off the joints, DC really isnt what id consider a low rep program, its definately safe as long as you stop when your form slips
but your point is valid considering that the lower the reps the more likely your going to fuck up and use shitty form due to the heavier weight, but Dc is in a pretty safe range and the rep ranges are set higher for less safe exercises, and straight sets, instead of Rest paused sets are used for taxing lifts like deadlifts etc!
For the people that sad you overtrain on dc is retarded. You do one set per body part twice a week. If you think over training on two sets a week is possible then your ridiculous. Do any of you know the reason you stretch?? Its to stretch the fascia layer of the muscle to give room for the muscle to grow. The fascia layer is wrapped tight around your muscles hence one of the reasons gaining muscle is hard to do. If you stretch it out after you train it it gives room for the muscle to grow however little it may be.
