So if someone wants to keep running through STRONG! And the GIANT from 24kg’s to 48kg’s, is there a need to break from DC&P and DC&PP during that journey from an overuse injury point of view? Or is there any kind of exercises that need to be added to prevent overuse injury?
I’m 41 yo, 6’4” @206lbs. I’ve just hit a year of consistently training. It’s all been with @Geoff Neupert
programs, and 90% of its just been the DC&P with an active negative. Last year was with THE GIANT and currently I’m running STRONG! Phase 1 w/ 24’s and in 3 weeks I’ll begin Phase 2 SLOW AND STEADY. The transformation not only aesthetically but also in how I feel has been incredible! I would like to run STRONG! and THE GIANT until I can complete with double 48’s and just use cycles of with DC&PP as needed moving into heavier bells.
To meet this long term goal and NOT get an overuse type injury do I need to add anything exercise wise (like rows, snatches, pull ups, direct ab work, etc) or programming wise (like a single bell program or calisthenics such as EASY MUSCLE Schedule C?). I do 3 sets of 5 Goblet Squats with a medium weight as part of my warm-up to maintain the pattern. Just wondering if I should do anything else.
Has anyone here stayed on these programs on a long term focus like this? If so, any advice/insights would be great!
