The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I know some folks who did it. They made the same progress they did on any other program where they worked hard.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Exactly!

    The reason DC reccomends it only for advanced trainees is becuase you need to have the ability to work hard and isolate it on one exercise for one set per bodypart, if you fanny around you wont gain anything.

    Which is why intensity can be traded with volume to a degree....

    I couldn't do those HIT-type workouts... you really need a dedicated spotter everytime you work out if you want to do them correctly.

    I found that to be pretty much the exact same. I seem to have gotten slightly stronger a tad bit faster than with other programs. I liked it but enjoy my own routine better.

    I find that from most of the boards I have read and the experience I've seen, the people who really seem to blow up on it are people who previously were seriously overtraining or just not pushing themselves/tracking progress properly.

    I like it, although I don't train that way. I train more for power/athleticism, myself. I think it's one of the best hypertrophy systems out there, but of course it's not a magic bullet. If you boil away all of the science and the little ins and outs of the program (at least what Dante has laid out publically) the big thing he's trying to get across is that people need to work hard. Most don't. The system sort of makes you work hard if you do it right. If one put that much effort into their workouts every time then a lot of systems will get you great results.

    Also remember that you're not doing "DC Training" unless you're under the guidence of Dante or one of his trainers (he has two or three now, I think). There are a lot of little things that he keeps close to his vest.
