How To Gain Mass 3
The dieting is done, the contest pics have been taken and Ed has taken a nice break from his training. Ed told me he had scarfed down lots of junk food including the KFC double down as shown below:

So now the question is – WHAT STYLE OF OFF SEASON TRAINING DOES ED DO?
Here are some parameters that Ed follows when planning his mass building, off season training:
- Brief but intense bodybuilding sessions.
- Heavy training while controlling the negative.
- 6-8 weeks in length, followed by a short break.
- Organized and systematic – you don’t use “guess work” if you’re training for size.
- Something fun yet challenging.
- A proven strategy that’s guaranteed to get you results.
It has been used all around the world with GREAT success. It’s not mainstream, it’s underground but the results are astounding if you follow the basic principles correctly. Go ahead, ask around your gym. See how many have heard of DC Training. Maybe one or two but of those one or two, they’re probably not sure what this type of training entails.
And unless they’re following a progressive style of training, keeping records and adding weight to the bar, 95% of people in gyms across this country aren’t gaining muscle and are wasting their time.
My friend and DC Expert practitioner, Jason Wojo tells me that the majority of people out there are doing it wrong.
This is important because if you’re going to follow a proven system, you need to make sure that you’re following it correctly.

Sometimes, even bodybuilders are in a hurry to workout.
Maybe it’s “one of those days” and rather than skipping your planned workout, you’re looking for something quick, challenging and effective. I’ve got the perfect workout for you to try. This is a conditioning workout that focuses on the chest, back and triceps. You’ll do 10 sets of three different exercises. They are:
- Pull Ups
- Push Ups
You can do the pull ups on a regular chinning bar, use gymnast rings, trx, or get creative with a strong handle (shovel, rake, hoe) and a couple of chairs. Once you’ve found a safe way of doing pull ups, knock out a few for a warm up.
The next exercise is push ups. All you need is the ground. Make sure you use good form and go all the way down to the lowest position. Knock out a few warm up reps of push ups.
Finally, we go to dips. Do this off the dip bar in the gym, gymnast rings, plyometric box, a big rock or a piece of furniture. Once you’ve settled on your way of doing dips, perform a few reps as a warm up.
Vince trained all types in his Hollywood gym including:
- Robert Blake (TV’s “Beretta”)
- Clint Eastwood
- Denzel Washington
- Tommy Chong
- Brian Keith
- James Garner
- Erik Estrada
- and many others
When the Hollywood studios needed to get their “star” in shape they typically would send him or her down to Vince’s Gym on Ventura Blvd in Studio City, California.
Warm up thoroughly before doing:
- 10 pull ups
- 10 push ups
- 10 dips
Do each set as if it were the only set. Don’t rush through the workout, don’t use bad form. Focus on squeezing the muscles during the exercise.
Repeat for 10 sets with no rest/little rest
Time to beat < 20 minutes
Note – Vince was using both pull up and parallel dipping bars. My guess is that he did push ups off of the parallel bars.
Strength training is an art form. You have to develop intuition - it takes time..safety 1st but know when to push! https://t.co/YssMd7QNlD
