  • Utilizing Dante's tips and tweaks

    Add any of Dante's little tips or tweaks you've used that work well:

    Last week I was doing alternate supination DB curls and decided to try his "offset grip" trick. I used lighter than normal DB's, and glad I did, grabbed them with my thumbs against the inside of the plate so that when you supinate you are at a leverage disadvantage. My bi's were fried in a way that they haven't been in a long time.

    I have been using these for my lagging biceps and horrible genetic peaks for about a year or so. I absolutely love them. I am also using his "pulldown bar attached to the low cables with wide grip and bent over bicep curl to the chin" movement. That one is a killer as well. These have actually grown my arms better than anything I have EVER used. My wife commented on my last show (last weekend, at which I finally won my IFPA Masters Pro card) how much bigger my arms looked this year on stage. Thanks Dante!!

          Not too mind blowing, but something I've found makes hamstring training much more effective when doing hamstring curl exercises. It is as simple and pointing your toes down. It is so easy to forget this when you are breathing like a locomotive and feel like knives have been stuck in your legs, but focusing on depressing your toes when doing hamstring curls really helps light them up.

            Can you provide more clarity on the bicep curl to the chin? I'm lost.

            Thanks in advance!

              I've been using Dante's treadmill protocol religiously for months and although my calves are not near where I want them, they are much larger and more defined than before.
              Here's the link to the thread so those interested can find it :

                Stand at pulley station.
                Attach pulldown bar.
                Hands wider than normal, almost at the bends of the bar.
                Instead of upper body standing upright, slight bend forward.
                Curl bar until close to/touches chin.

                Reduces propensity to cheat, the use of body english, shoulders taking over the movement. Allows better contraction of the biceps.

                Not a DC tweak but LDC (LearningDC...where the hell is that guy?) tweak...

                If doing dips on a dip station with angled bars, face the other way so hands are slightly more supinated than pronated. My god the difference it makes...

                        Just did the 1.5 t-bar rows

                        Side note on 1.5 reps: fourarms felt like they were going to explode
                        Try to hold contraction on half and full reps for 1-1.5 sec each rep was killer

                        Finished up with 2 straight set pull ups, lets were in extreme burn
