  • Doggcrapp Training PreContest?

    I'm very pleased with the progress I've made after my first month of Doggcrapp Training. Should I make any modifications now with my sights set on competing September 26th? I'm not against taking this all the way into the day off the show. In fact, I'm afraid to stop. Any input would be appreciated.

    *I searched the other threads here in the Dogg Pound and apologize if this has already been covered.

      Chuck, Did you look at all of them, here you go from DC:

      I usually have people rest pause as long as they can and then straight set at about the 3-6 week mark from the show (for injury sake)--depending on their tiredness and work schedule we make determinations of whether to stay with the 2x every 8 days method or splitting the body 3 ways and going a different route. Remember though--A semblance of what gave you that muscle mass is going to keep that muscle mass. Take a 320lb bodybuilder who lifts heavy slag iron all day long in the offseason with backbreaking weights and put him on a contest program of tuna fish and water with high rep training with light weights and guess what youll get? total disenagration...

          Thanks In-Human.

          That's exactly what I was looking for.

            Chuck go as long as you can with the mwf or the other split (2 full workouts and then 3rd one split in halfs) as you can and at the point you feel like you are getting too fatigued split it 3 ways---and also straight set when you get close to the contest--your not going to be gaining any muscle the last 2-4 weeks so there is no reason to risk injury with rest pauses--or if your afraid to give up rest pausing raise the reps to 15-30 (id rather you straight set anyway)

                Hey ChuckaZulu, the way I'm training now is that I split the workouts into 3 days. I put back, biceps and forearms in one day. In the offseason I was putting back with chest, shoulders and triceps. I notice I stated to fatigue more so I split it up. I train 4 days a weeks so I am still hitting on of the groups twice a week.

                  If I may, I am no DC expert at all but I am doing it the DC way and I am 10 days out. It's backbreaking, and in some cases heartbreaking, but you just need to tough it out till the end. Of course, the reps will fall and the weights will fall, but in my case, this not has been too drastic. And yes, I keep going till my head is pounding, my heart is exploding and my body screaming. Just in case you need the equation paramaters.
