I've finally decided what I want to do in February!
Thank you, Kris Gethin, for creating an INSANE 30 day workout program
**I begin on Monday, Jan 26th so I can have a deload week before February ends**
As with some of my previous topics, this is to track my progress & I'll take an initial photo on Sunday 25th
DTP stands for "Dramatic Transformation Principle," and it will dramatically alter your physique.
DTP is a pyramid trainer. You lift four days per week with cardio days between each weight session. You'll only be doing one or two exercises for each muscle group or body part, but you might hit 500 reps across multiple sets.
DTP sets are typically 50, 40, 30, 20, 10 reps. You increase weight as you go up the pyramid, so you're always lifting as heavy as possible in a given rep range. When you've completed the first 5 sets, you'll go back down the pyramid—10, 20, 30, 40, 50 reps—decreasing weight as you go. All told, you'll do 10 sets.
REPS OF 50!?!?!?!?!?! I CAN'T WAIT TO START THIS!!!!!!!
" I am sick of hearing, "I have a harder job, I work longer hours, I don't have time, I don't have the money for a trainer, my genetics are shit, and I have pain when I train." Shut up, already! I have seen taxi drivers, lawyers, mothers of five with 3 jobs, actors who work 16-hour days with no weekends, and builders who have to climb ladders for days accomplish amazing transformations.
Why? Because they wanted it. On the other hand, I have seen others who have easy jobs, all the money in the world, no family commitments, amazing genetics, and access to the best gyms look the same year after year. Why? Because they make excuses day-in, day-out! If you are one of these people, either harden the **** up or get another pastime."

DAY ONE - Legs & upper abs.
So today is the first day of trying out the DTP program. It's a very simple method & today is just 2 exercises for the legs:
- Leg Press
- Calf Raises
What's gonna seperate the men from the boys is the number or reps you complete, and the rest time in between. It's a pyramid system and the reps for the leg press are 50,40,30,20,10,10,20,30,40,50. It's slightly less for the calves.
In total that's 360 reps of leg press and 220 reps of calf press, finished off with 5 rounds of weighted decline crunches to fatigue... TIME TO NUT UP OR SHUT UP TODAY!!!
Your diet is insane, I wouldn't make it after the first 2 meals, I would be full for the rest of the day! LOL
Good luck with your program! ☺
Going strong scotty! Remember to chew!
DAY EIGHT - LEG DAY AGAIN!! I plan on going heavier today than last week to really push my limits. I pushed hard last week but woke the next day slightly disappointed in myself and with a feeling that I didn't test myself to the limit. No way am I making that mistake again.
Pleased with the minor increase in my measurements and now I know what to expect from the workouts I know that this week is the time to make sure I get all my carbs in early, hit the gym with a fresh cup of coffee in my bloodstream, crank up the angry music, zone out and tear shit up!
