  • DC 2way vs DY HIT

    Pros/cons of each? does the lesser frequency of DY style HIT make it not as effective as DC? or would the slightly higher volume compensate that? discuss...

    Either will work but IMO DC has a better set up.

      Thanks. Have tried DC before when most would say i wasnt ready for it and made good gains, although looking back i agree i wasn't ready for it. Some say teenagers are too young etc which i can understand ( 19) and to build a 'decent' strength base, will be training 4years come 2012 and currently rep 600 deadlifts, 500 squats and 300 inclines, would u recomend im ready to try it 'properly' now?

            If you are uncertain (which it sounds like you are) then do DY's routine.

              The only way to tell is to do a few workouts of each. Maybe during a cruise just to feel things out for each. I just cannot seem to stray from DC. My strength is excellent and I love the scheme of things. Nothing like the dreaded stretch after a 20 rep hack squat!

                  What sort of Yates inspired split were you thinking of? I used something like this once and it was pretty good:

                  Chest+arms
                  Legs
                  Off
                  Delts/back
                  Off
                  Repeat (off if necessary)

                      The 'official' Blood and Guts split is:

                      Chest/biceps
                      Legs
                      Off

                      Back
                      Off

                        I honestly can't see how you are moving that type of weight for reps, yet you are asking for approval to do DC....and you seem like you are unsure of how you SHOULD be training.....If you seriously are hitting those numbers, then why would you change anything about what you are doing NOW, cause it's obvious that something is working....just my opinion....

                          Ah, yes, that was it. I like that set up as well. Usually gives you a day in between sessions and the right amount of frequency.

                            you cant go wrong with either program....the basics of both are high intensity, low volume, and beating a log book

                            the one thing i would always keep in my workouts no matter what program you're doing is extreme stretching after training each bodypart

                              Thats my spilt exactly and I love it. Only thing is that I do hams with back and quads with calves only. The split gives the upperbody the rest it needs between workouts so there never is 2 days straight of upper.
