  • how is rest-pausing better than straight sets?

    I agree with alot of what DC says but can you tell me how restpausing a set is more effective than straight sets?

    Hmmm... where do I start? As rest-pausing takes your muscles/motivation to a whole new level it stands to reason your body AND mind have to adapt to cope with such a high stressor. That is why DC training is ONLY for the advanced who have milked other systems as you need to be able to apply yourself whole-heartedly--both mentally and physically--to reap all the benefits the system has to offer.

    The first time I messed with rest-pause was when Mentzer came out with his HD Journal in '80. But training alone I found it tough going doing single rep rest-pause sets, let alone the risk of injury, so I put it on the backburner. That was until coming across DC's way of training with higher reps that I saw how convenient it would be despite training alone in my well equipped home gym. Knowing I have nuked each muscle each training session is healthy for my ego--as I have no doubt I have done the intended job vs niggling doubts I had when I simply did straight sets (which seems to plague a majority or trainees I have spoke too... it is the "nature of the beast" when one is hardcore).

    But with the good comes the bad, which is why it needs cycling for your body/mind to cope. Even the great Dorian Yates (with his super genetics and super supps) could only hit it for 6 weeks before down cycling his efforts... which tells you something. I love this way of training, everything fits together to form a sound and productive system. I have been around long enough to know when something is worthwhile vs fluff, and I love rest-pause as it is part and parcel of DC training--providing one has the mental drive and recuperative abilities of course. As promised my strength gains have been remarkable! And we all know that strength gains are the surest way to size gains.

                When you start this program especially if you are not an advanced trainee, you do start with straight sets, this is a way to find out what kind of recovery someone has, if they do well then you move them into RP...

                  maybe i didnt make that sound too clear..

                  hows this one: chronic, how about you find your baselines and recovery on this program and then after you do figure that out for yourself, straight set everything for 1 month, then start rest pausing the appropriate exercises for the same amount of time. which one gave you larger strength and size increases and allowed you to destroy the logbook more?


                  -but i think he is looking for a 'scientific' like answer to his question.

                          LOL, I dunno what's wrong with me. I will post every now and again during the day, but at night when no one else is posting, it's like I'll choose to post in most threads if I'm curious about something. I dunno.

                              Straight sets I understand, normal 30-45 second rest and hit it again.

                              What defines recovery? I know this is a very vague question, but how does one know if they are ready to move onto the advanced rest-pause training?
