    how do you guys dealt with the change in mindset to train less often?

    i ask b/c i'm coming off about 6 weeks of a very aggressive double-split program that saw me in the gym 2x's/day M-F and 1 long session on weekends. it's hard for me to fathom hitting the gym 2-4 times per week total, when i'm used to 12x's per week.

    I can only speak for myself, but once you complete a "by-the-book" DC workout with the full intensity required, you shouldn't be too concerned about not training enough. I'm usually more worried about how I'm gonna make it up the stairs to get out to my car! NO KIDDING! The workouts leave me absolutely destroyed, in a good way. I would not (could not) go back into the gym the next day, never mind the same day.

      Let me tell you, after 25 years of training this was a very hard thing to do, but I have to be very open mind to gain more mass since I was stuck with my current program and I had no where else to go.

      After reading a lot about DC's program and the people that have done so well, I put it in my mind this is what needs to be done, just like all other programs I give them at least 6 to 8 months to work and if they don't I move on.

      After the first 4 weeks I was hooked and this program is tougher than my 50 to 70 set workouts could ever be and the weight gain was just incredible in such a short time...

          DC::When you repeatedly see people gaining 30-60lbs inside of their first year on this, you learn to deal with the fact that they are gaining 2x as fast as the people around them in the gym.
