growth

Alright well the way i think i understood it was that if your overtraining for a piriod of time and you rest for a week or so you will will see that youve been over training because your body finally grows abit. I was not growing at all till i started my cruise just this week correct me if im wrong. Tomorrow our teacher is letting us to in the gym but i dont think im going to workout im just going to rest abit more till i start DC on tuesday.

yes, your reps were really high if you're going for 11-15 RP. next time, plan on making a pretty serious jump in weight on just about every exercise. when your set starts looking like 9-4-3 or 8-3-2 or something like that, then you'll be hitting the sweet spot on the 11-15 RP exercises.

Looking like a great start John! But I think Wake is right about the back thickness exercises. Straight set.

Solid workout John! You're right, the reps were a little high, but that's good. It means you didn't just stop when you hit 15 RP reps. On my first workouts of a blast, the reps are usually screwed up. Some too low, most too high. Just make the appropiate adjustments next time these come up in your rotation and you'll be fine.

nice workout johnny . i am no dc expert as you already know but to just give you an advice .

forearms are straight setted i think 1 set of 12 very controlled . for some it might work better what you are doing but i am not sure how well you are recovering . i might even keep a higher rep range between 15-20 and still do 1 set straight only ..

stiff legged deads is also not rp . i am not sure but some are warming up and then do 6 sets of 6 >>>>but each time doing a set the weight gets increased . the next tim you are doing stiffys you'd start about 40lbs below the weight which you have used in your last set and then do the same thing >>>>add weight with each set .
other are doing differnt. rep ranges but less sets . but no rp .

and calves are also not rp . it is 1 set as followed >>>explosive positive ,slow negative (count to 5 while doing negative) all the way down into stretch . then stay in the stretched position for approx. 15 sec. (just count )........and repeat . you want to get to 12

but i am hoping that somebody with more dc experience is coming in here and will lead you in the right direction .
why don't you pm any of the DC experts to come in and take a look at your journal once in a while
