because most of you are vain, dumb, and have no money  Cheesy

Most but not all. Yes, I am vain. But I have a college degree, some graduate education ( in finance, not "physical education") a six figure income and six figures in the bank.  Grin

my opinion? Whatever tools you use to accomplish the job is fine with me. I think you guys are arguing over something that doesnt need to be argued over. If Skippy loves squats and Horace loves hacks and they both have built great legs, does it really matter?

My preference? Whatever you have to use to progressively rest pause SAFELY on. If you have a training partner then I say bomb away with free weight inclines with a barbell, you dont have to worry about getting stuck, he will save you every time during your rest pauses. If you dont have a training partner I would much rather see you on an incline smythe machine than be caught with 315lbs on a free weight barbell guillotine yelling "HELP!" when you tried to go for that extra rep and it wasnt in the cards that day.

"Dante intended his trainees to train hard not half asses machine work.

That's for backing up my point. It clearly says that Dante prefers freeweights over machines but because his trainees cannot do them safely them must alter for the easy baby version."

Take that Alexx. So, are Smith Machines still for pussies and babies?

The bodybuilder on the Smith Machine because the free weight guy is going to get hurt and either be in rehab for six months or else permanently injured so that he won't be able to bench more than 300 for the rest of his life.

Mine (and Dante's ) point is that safety is an important consideration. It only takes one injury to knock someone out of the box. Take it from someone who in his earlier younger past did stupid ego gratification things like that and ended up with a rotator cuff injury that set me back for many many months.

I'm confused. You seem to be contradicting yourself.

Dante intended his trainees to train hard not half asses machine work.

This is Dante himself from Ironman Magazine, July 2006:

"...its very easy to save yourself on a Smith Incline press at a failure point. You just turn the bar and latch the weight. I would hate to see one of my trainees doing free weight incline bar presses with a guillotine bar on his neck at failure...regardless, a lot of people misconstrue this as a love for machines, when in actuality I'm trying to keep safety in mind for someone who does not have a spotter. Its as simple as that. My choice would always be a free weight over a machine if it can be done safely. That's why I tend to use power racks and Smith Machines a lot".

And by the way, have you done DC yourself?

Smith machines are for pussies!
Until I started DC, I didn't use Smith Machines alot, but they are necessary for DC and if gaining several pounds of muscle in three months is "pussy", so be it.

Hey, you want to send me an XXXXL size T Shirt with " I'm a Pussy" written on it. I'll wear it when I train.

The reason Smith Machines are used in DC are for safety.

If you want to know why, read about the program and stop making blanket statements.

  With DC you're constantly trying to beat your best lifts either by weight or by reps, you might only lift 2.5lbs more on a movement everytime or everyother time but it adds up and you can work up to some pretty respectable poundages. 
Very true. I work up in small increments at a time.

So, has anyone seen any incredible gains through this method?



If so, do you use AAS or not?



Updates anyone?



Show me some numbers!

I am in the middle of my second DC cycle. In the first cycle in August, I gained 5 pounds in lean muscle in 4 weeks after being "stuck" for several months before that. So far in cycle 2, I am up 2 pounds in 15 days. In DC, it not only the training that is important, but it is the NUTRITION, REST and even CARDIO. I am doing cardio 3 times a week instead of 1 or 2 and it is really jacking up my appetite and metabolism. My protein intake is 1.5 grams per pound ( 300 grams a day) versus 1.25 before and even that little bit has made a difference.

No, I do not use AAS. I am 47 years old, so taken in that context, these type of gains for an experienced(not newbie), natural lifter are extraordinary in my mind.

Poundages ( since 8/7):  Barbell Curls up 10, Squats up 30, Leg Press up 70, Deadlifts up 20, Rack Deadlifts up 50.

in the original dog logg Dante described his quad training as always being 20 rep work.  He said that if he had a dude with genetically huge legs he'd have him do the 4-6 rep stuff and then do a widowmaker.  My personal experience is that for me to squat and make progress I had to keep the weight a little lighter and go for 20 reps but even with that my back was giving me huge problems so I don't even bother anymore.  20 rep squats are killers....but hey, if 12 reps does the trick and you can progress on them then by all means.  You see, DC is not really a cookie cutter routine, you can make changes to it if you have to as long as you progress and get stronger and/or beat the logbook.  Some guys would kill me for saying that but it's the truth as far as I'm concerned.  You need to do what you need to do to beat the logbook, now there is a point where if you get really nuts changing stuff it's not really gonna be DC training but realistically if you're making gains that doesn't really matter, does it?  Hell, if I had to switch things around but still got up to say 220lbs and was pretty lean I'd be happy and it wouldn't matter to me if someone said "but it's not DC".....either way I would have progressed and that's the bottom line.
I think this is the kind of thinking that caused Dante to go underground.  IT IS A COOKIE CUTTER PROGRAM ( it says do a 4-8, then a 20 rep widowmaker), but people were taking so many liberties that what they were doing was not DC, as Dante saw it.

What I am concerned about when I see people doing 20 reps squats by themselves ( and not as a widowmaker) is that it becomes a means of not working the legs as hard as they can, which I see as a far too prevalent disease in gyms.

I'm not a strong squatter, I have a few lower back issues that have been with me for years and they are very hard to work around for me.  I guess i could go to a chiropractor and have them sorted out but I just don't.  If you honestly don't want to go over 390, maybe redurce the weight and just do a 20 repper....I would THINK that doing a set of 20 with 315 would be just as effective as what your doing now and then add weitht from there, next squat workout try 320 for 20 etc.  This is how I handled squatting for along time but even doing this when I got heavy-heavy for me-my back couldn't take it and I did everything I could think of to protect my lower back...anyway, that's what I would try. 

Natural, I don't think going to 20 reps is the solution. I think a  better way is to increase the targeted reps to 12.  This would reduce the weight to say 335 or 355. If he gets 12 easily, then add 5 or 10 pounds and then keep adding small increments of 5 or 10 pounds at a time as he gets 12 or 13 reps without difficulty. This type of weight should not create the lower back problems squatting at 6 or 8 rep weights would.

You can do 2 grams per lb. of bodyweight; but, you'd have to drink at least half of those grams (maybe even 2/3 of them).



Why? 1.5 worked fine for me.

She flamed out about 5 years ago. She was given pro status way before she was ready.


There have been rumors( note that they are unsubstantiated) that she's serving cocktails in Vegas clubs.

Do any of you ladies do high weight, low rep deadlifts to failure, either occasionally or regularly?

She didn't qualify and hasn't competed for a couple of years. Dealing with alot of personal issues, including finances, and I don't know if she'll be on stage in 2007.

That's great guys.  And you can stop with the "If you're not takin real gear you're wastin your time" bullshit.  Some of us can't take gear cause we're in the military and actually have to be tested for that shit.  Unlike the civi world I would actually go to jail for that shit.  Do not pay a fine... do not do community service... go directly to jail.  When I get out I'll do gear.. until then I have to go with the next best thing. 
I have a very good job and its too much to risk losing by getting busted, so real gear is out of the question for me. I've been trying Legal Gear the last three months and its definitely worked for me. Sure, probably not as much as the real stuff, but I'm well satisfied. And this is from someone who got no effects at all from the pro hormones when they were out.

where can i read about what this DC stuff really is. just what it is basically and if i think it's interesting i'll read more.

There is also a very good article in the September issue of Flex Magazine. That and the intense muscle website will tell you all you need to know.

The nutritional part is also very important. 2 grams of protein for me was too extreme and frankly impossible because I have a real day job. 1 1/2 worked fine.

I was very skeptical at first, but the program worked wonders for me. It is so intense that 3 days a week is all you want to be in the gym. The other days you need to recover. After 4 weeks, I was totally wiped out.

Seriously though, if he's young his metabolism could be that high, my friend will sit down at a buffet keep eating and won't leave until they tell him to and yet he still does not gain an ounce. I don't know how but it is possible. So there could be some merit to this guys story.

So does he go to the buffet every day? Or is it once and a while and every other day, he's eating erratically and only taking in 1500 calories a day?

Gaining weight means consistently eating every day, on the clock, every 2-3 hours. Getting enough protein, carbs and healthy fats.

There are no excuses if you want it bad enough.

As I write this, I'm eating an 800 calorie breakfast of chicken, potatoes, egg whites, a whole egg and a whole wheat bagel. Do I feel like doing this every day? No! But I do it because I have to and I'm not a whiner like this guy.

Stop making excuses and do it. EAT.

I used to think I was the same way. 4000 calories a day and I've gained 27 pounds in 4 years later.
21  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: need some advice on gaining bodyweight on: October 04, 2006, 04:30:43 AM
Its very simple. To gain weight, you need to ingest more calories than you are expending. Its DIET, as in EAT and EAT and EAT. The training program is secondary.
22  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: Washing training gloves on: October 04, 2006, 04:28:06 AM
I use Scheiks. After about a month, they get clammy and smelly, so I soak them in lukewarm water with some detergent for an hour and then hang them up to dry. It takes about a day or so to fully dry. They last me a couple of years.
