DT plus weights?

Post by MrBones » Wed May 07, 2008 7:09 am

Hey guys - brand new to forum.

I've always been interested in the DT training, back from seeing the comic book ads as a kid. I currently work with weights but think DT would be a great supplement to enhance my physique. Being in my mid 40s I am leery of overtraining and/or trying to lift too-heavy weights that end up damaging my joints or worse.

Does anyone else use a combination of the two, and if so, do you have any advice on making this approach work?

Thank you in advance for your help.

I prefer to train with Martial Arts and Dynamic Tension, I found weights would make me feel too sore and stiff at times.

Try doing your squats and push ups on the side of a hill outside, each facing North, South, East and West

I do the same thing, I combine my workout with Martial Arts and Dynamic Tension. I usually do the Dynamic Tension before I start my Martial Arts workout, helps me to get limber. I use to use weights when I was younger, never had any results, just made my arms tired, never could feel any "burn" in my muscles until I started doing Dynamic Tension exercises.
