      It's basic and don't see why it couldn't work for a change of pace but as Jim said it's still a work in progress. I'd rather see a 3 day or 4 day per week routine like the DC 3 way split. Who knows, give her a shot. R/P assistance stuff can't hurt I know someone will blast him for R/P'ing bench

        Beat me to it. I was just about to post it as well.

        Everyone loves to talk about accessory work and especially combining rest pausing and 5/3/1. If you're gonna do it, do it the way Jim prescribes.

          saw this today too, two great coaches/programs with tons of experience and real world experience and success in the trenches but idk about combining these. why would you want to? this just seems like more OCD, i need something more and new type of mentality behind this program, just what t-nation readers need. imo these programs are better suited at different times of the year so you can fully reap the benefits of each individual program. and when used separately, these programs compliment each beautifully, you gain the strength and experience under the bar with 5/3/1 and move to DC when 5/3/1 starts to go stale

            If one was to try this though, i would agree with wendlers recommended just 2Xper week, especially for an experienced lifter because your gonna need that extra recovery considering how taxing a 5/3/1 strength progression is on your body combined with how intense a true working DC set is

              Yeah... I'm not on T-nation but I might just make a profile for that reason lol

              Aside from that, setting it up for two days per week will allow for enough recovery, and this could be a really good program. But he doesn't have any variation to the RP scheme, it seems they are all pretty high rep range RP sets...

                Never tried 5/3/1 personally. Looks interesting nevertheless. Thought the guys here would find it interesting as well...

                  Let's see... Squatting, deadlifting, benching, and pressing heavy each once a week combined with the most grueling, trying, and draining form of accessory work? Yeah, sounds great.

                    Sammich, but let's look at this realistically...how many people do you think are going to do the RP sets correctly and with the true intensity of DC training? It will give the folks over there something to try to make them push a little harder than normal, but I highly doubt the majority will train with the true intensity of DC.

                    EDIT: and like the asshole I am, i went on T-nation and said that flat BB bench pressing was a poor choice. I don't think I can do the livespill thing at work so commented in their forums.

                      I don't like it. What brought me over to this site, was DC training, so I have read all about it. But it led me to what I really needed and that was 5/3/1. But trying to combine them doesn't really work for me. I think you could do some iso work and R/P it, like barbell curls or tri ext, or press downs. But not the main lifts.

                        If I recall , I think "Future" also tried to combine Powerlifting and DC/Rest-Pause some time ago...

                          He did. BTW, has anyone heard from him? Hope all is well with Shawn.

                            I think he's training at Metroflex-PHX. Saw it on FB, but it could have just been a clinic.

                              He is on the come back trail for the USPA Nationals and is killing it, hopefully he stays healthy because he's going to be right up there in the 275's with Eric Lilliebridge and Stan E. Not to say better but he's in the mix
