You’ll never get big unless you push yourself beyond what you think is possible.
I filmed Ed Brown, Jr and Chris Pappillion recently at Austin Metroflex Gym. Ed was working back and was using DC Training. DC Training forces your body to grow bigger and stronger if you use correct intensity and follow the program. DC Training is centered around “the big lifts” like rows, deadlifts, presses and squats. If you’re looking to look good while walking around the local mall, forget DC Training.
If you’re looking to kick ass and take names in the gym, on the football field or in life then DC Training will be for you. You’ll work hard for 4-6 weeks and then you’ll “cruise” for one week. Repeat. Personally, I’ve used this routine for years and at 50 years old, it’s been one of the reasons that I can maintain decent numbers in the gym – keeping my membership in the 3-4-5 club. The 3-4-5 club is open to anyone who can Bench Press at least 300lbs, Squat at least 400lbs and Deadlift at least 500lbs.
Strength builds character and self confidence. You’ll need both of those characteristics for the rest of your life.
