Starting back up

Post by Mickey » Sun Sep 02, 2012 5:43 pm

HEY GUYS, MICKEY HERE. AFTER A LONG ABSENCE, AND THE THOUGHT THAT LIFTING HEAVY WEIGHTS WOULD GET ME BACK TO WHERE I WANTED TO BE PHYSICALLY. I WAS WRONG. I GAINED WEIGHT (NOT THE GOOD KIND) AND GOT HURT. AFTER TWO UNSUCSESSFULL ATTEMPTS AT "INSANITY", HURT MYSELF BOTH TIMES WITHIN 3 WEEKS OF STARTING. I AM BACK TO DT. I WILL COMMIT TO THE 12 WEEK PROGRAM. I HAVE BEEN EATING PALEO FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS, SO I WILL STICK WITH THAT FOR MY DIET. I AM STARTING THIS MONDAY (LABOR DAY) 9-3-2012. I HAVE A VINTAGE PROGRAM THAT IS THE FORMAT I WILL FOLLOW. I WILL POST STATS IN THE MORNING, AND IF I CAN FIGURE IT OUT PICS AS WEEL. I WILL BE USING THIS POST AS MY TRAINING LOG. SO KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR ME.

Great decision, Mickey! Just remember to "train and not strain" as advised by Atlas. Just stay with the program, as it is well proven, and consistency is the key to success.

Great move Mickey I am about seven weeks in I find it hard to fit the morning work out in due to my work etc but I have been making it up in the afternoon and before I go to bed its making difference I just feel better in genral .
I did go a little over board with the arms yesterday what surprises me is how much of a pump I can get going as compared to lifting a DB when I really put in with the DT my arms are sore today !
Any way good luck with your training Mickey.
John.

I too switched from DT and went to the thick workout bands. I never got hurt using DT. Using the bands I tore a ligament
In my thumb. Never again will I leave DT. It truly is the best system there is.

Great decision Mickey!!!! DT is great beacuse it is all natural. Put your mind in the muscle you are training and you will see results in no time. As Mr. Atlas said, exercise with a WILL. If you would "TRAIN, DON'T STRAIN", the results you are looking for will surely come!!!! :P

Back up and going strong. Starting lesson 3 tomorrow sans the enima, not going to do that sorry charlie. Knocked off 100 dips today. Slacked on the walking this week. I plan on picking it back up in the morning. I am also going to weight in tomorrow, my starting weight was 204lbs. My clothes seem to fit better but would also like to drop to around 180 lbs but as long as i loose the gut i dont care. Thanks for listening.

It seems for me that lifting weights makes me want to eat more in an attempt to gain mass, but that mass ends up just being fat around the waist. Following a system like Dynamic Tension make you not eat for mass gains and keep slim and trim. I don't see the point of gaining mass and getting a fat belly. Eating more mindful small portions will keep your waist trim and show that 6 pack, I don't follow a diet plan just eat healthy natural food as much as possible. I think the key to success with Dynamic Tension is doing it everyday.
