    Sounds like the training can prolong the life of your joints

    Great insite Future, I bought the Jason Wojo DVD 3 weeks ago, after seeing some videos on Dave Henry on youtube, and finally decided to buy it, because I'm a "visual learner." So far everyone whom I showed the workouts to, just looked at me like:
    1) I don't know what I'm doing
    2) I'm lazy

    Yet, numerous people have told me that I'm getting "bigger," even though I'm on a stricter diet..hmm.... haha

    So far I'm into week 3 with that, and so far so good. Except my muscles are usually still tight going into the next workout I do. I'm doing a 2 days on - 1 day off due to my schedule. I can't wait to reach my goals by May.

    I was wondering, can DC training be used to "bulk up," while FST-7 be used to "cut up?"

    If you are new to DC, two on one off is not the protocol. Dante would quickly tell you to not say you are training DC with this split. 3 day split is for very advanced trainers.

    1. I'm running Dave's diet to lean out. Is DC training compatible?

    2. I'm doing cardio after training (30 min) and 1 hour on off days. Issue?

    3. I get to the gym at 4am as this is my only time to train. I have no training partner and would not trust anyone in the gym at that time to spot me. It seems like a spotter is required for DC training. Is my assumption correct?

    Hey Future, I thought you weren't doing DC anymore?

    isn't the beginner split like this:

    Sunday rest
    Monday w1A
    Tuesday rest
    Wednesday w1B
    Thursday rest
    Friday w2A
    Saturday rest

    Again, they (Wojo's DVD) said that beginning "lifters" shouldn't go right in to DC training.. so if I've been training/lifting for several years now does that mean that I'm not "up to" training DC?

    Wojo also said the 4 day split is the advanced routine. Let me know if I'm getting all this wrong, or if Wojo miscommunicated.

    In this order you're golden, but you said two on one off cause your schedule, that changes things big time. If your schedule is conflicting I would suggest something like a 5x5 routine. Off days are a major element in the recovery of DC.~ Patrick

    Im on the 2 day split. It is great. Lift 3 times a week. It is the most practical and efficient I have ever tried.

    How do you guys that on are DC implement cardio into your program? I know it is recommended on the off days and adjust it from there.

    bigtimektz, what's your bodyfat percentage (taken by calipers, not the weird electronic handheld ones)?

    You might not have to do cardio if your bodyfat levels are low enough. First determine whether cardio is even necessary. Then depending on your metabolism and how high your bodyfat percentage is (among other things), you can plan out your cardio sessions accordingly.

    I have never had it measured. As of right now Im not doing any cardio. Im shopping for an elliptical or stationary bike so I can do it at home. I hate doing it at the gym.
