    i also want to know if i should only warm up initially, at the start of a new muscle group or at the beginning of every exercise; and if so, do you exclude those reps from the log?

    im really eager to begin this as of next week, and because im very busy at the moment (as i just moved homes over the weekend, and im still settling into my new place), i just want to get started, and get a feel for it while learning the ins and outs. i know some of you guys say thats like jumping in the deep end, but hey, thats the mentality dante says you need :P

    are there any threads that cover the training side of DC holistically? most of what ive been reading has been generalised. perhaps im looking in the wrong place?
    Here ya go!

    i have a few questions after reading the stickies. dante said this:

    "on day one i do free squats shit heavy and then the hack for my 20 repper (which leaves me breathing like a locomotive anyway) and on the other day I do the newer leg press for both my heavy and widowmaker sets and on the last leg day i do smythe squats shit heavy and then the widowmaker on the older leg press. So as you see same scheme just some tweaks i do for myself if you were curious. "


    so this is three workouts? meaning over the course of repeating the split three times? or does this mean hes training them three times a week? i understood the concept of using your better judgement by picking the right exercises according to rotation of body parts, and that sometimes you have to cut an exercise here. no, he is referring to the 2-way split in which the legs are worked every other workout over the course of 3 workouts each week. So on a m-w-f/m-w-f schedule, legs would be hit the 1st week on wed and the 2nd week mon and fri.

    i didnt find anything about the number of sets that is intended to be done? is there a sticky on that anywhere? see below

    dante also spoke about people making "hybrid" copys of his template. am i allowed to keep the template the same, but rather change an odd exercise here and there? eg replace decline bench with weighted dips? again, read the stickies linked below. You do need to keep the template the same but do have some leadway with exercise choices....however there are certain execises that are recommended over others.

    i cant wait to start this next week!

    Go through the stickies above and read them all twice. The info you seek is in there. Then if you are still confused, come back with your questions.
