    If so, how have the results been. I've been easing into it for about a month and my body is ready for the full workout. Loving it so far

    Hey, back when I was into bodybuilding I used it for 14 months and gained 30lbs with it. You have to eat loads and listen to all the advice on the site. I thought my diet was good but it contained loads of carbs (obviously not after the prescribed carb cut off though). I was eating pasta, bread etc and for the first twenty pounds put on essentially just muscle b/c I had rugby at the same time. Then I hot injured and didn't have rugby 3x a week so that last 10lbs was muscle and fat.

    Not sure how I would fare now that my diet is dialled in. Its pretty intense though.
    I used 8 week blasts and 2 week cruises.

    I've tried doing sets dc style for my HIT workouts. It works very well. But I did learn the hard way why you need the cruising phases. I did it for about 10 weeks, and then my strength hit rock bottom. Doing it that way, even with minimal volume, you'll still burn yourself out without the cruising phases.

    The thing I liked best about that rep scheme is that it's relatively high reps and so it makes it easier to add an extra rep or more on the next workout. And in my experience, mentally it's a lot easier than lifting maximal weights or anything near it.

    I guess the only thing that I personally would modify from a dc style workout structure is the actual setup of the exercises. Because I'm more of a fan of a lower total workout frequency as opposed to working out more days per week. I like the flexibility. My favorite is 2 workouts per week, where I'd split the body into 2 different workouts. I'm not saying that's the best for everyone; it's just what I personally like for me.
