if you're training DC, I'll give you one suggestion and it's a hard one to accept for alot of guys DB's pressing movements in general don't work out all that well, I'm a strong presser-at least I think I am and the work required to use DB's just got to be too much of a pain in the ass, once you hit a point it's a pain. I got up to the 120's on DB incline presses before I realized it, kick the wieght up, press it 6-8 times, drop it....12 deep breaths, pick em back up and inot position agian and go...it's a pain in the ass.
i'm not doing dc, however i like some of the principles of it.
i'm ecclectic in nature, and i like things from many systems. so i try to combine certain things, and if they work i stick with them.
i know what you mean about the db's though. i'm mainly doing straight sets with them.(changing rep ranges every workout)
i took a long layoff from training after i totally burnt out. 8 months or so off. but when i started back my strength was comming back very fast under my current system. i went from 50lbs db's to the 100's in 2 months, then got the shoulder injury thats driving me mad.
