  • Intensity of leg movements

    Hi guys,

    Just started doggcrapp after doing volume training for ages. Had a question regarding the intensity of the primer set for quads before the widow makers.

    I'm curently rotating hack squats, belt squats and v squats. The rep ranges I'm running are between 4 to 8 reps. Would like to know if I should be doing this set to technical failure like the straight sets or should I be leaving a couple of reps in the tank and continue to progress it while leaving some gas for the widow maker.

    I ask this because its easy to overshoot on these sets and make a mini widow maker out of them eg. Doing 8 reps with your 4rm.

    Sorry if it's a silly question guys, been searching the forums and haven't been able to find anything on this. Appreciate any suggestions.

    I would prefer that someone how is better versed in DC Training respond to your message. It has been years since I have used DC Training, but I do not ever remember anything less than failure for working sets. In fact, DC Training was long before RIR was even a thing. I am quite confident that the answer you will get is that you take that set to failure.

      Thanks for taking the time to reply Skip.
      I think I'll just be reasonable with my first set in terms of failure and not extend the set over several minutes like a widowmaker. Will then work to progress both the primer set and widowmaker.

          You should do your warm up sets and then your 4-8 should be to failure, yes. But failure without compromising safety as far as knees, lower back, etc. Then move on to your WM set for all out assault of 12-20.

          Hope this helps.

              You’ve got 2 sets maybe 4 for the week for your quads.
              The last rep should be where you can’t get back up

                For sure man, it's what I've been doing so far.
                Probably the most enjoyable part fo dc for me is just going ham and leaving it at that for that particular movement. Has made me realise I'm a lot stronger than I thought i was.
