​Let’s Use DTP to Crush Shoulders

02/06/2018

The Dramatic Transformation Principle, best known as “DTP” has helped millions of people in the same position as you’re in right now transform with almost incomprehensible results! Over 150 million people in the world have used DTP to better their physiques.

In case you’re unfamiliar with my DTP training principle here’s a concise overview of what it does and why it works so damn well!

DTP Overview

DTP is a pyramid training system which starts with the highest rep range and the lightest weight, training slow twitch muscle fibers. From the outset you use a reverse pyramid sequence, reducing the reps with each set and increasing the weight. As you near the bottom of the pyramid where you’ll perform your heaviest sets, the rest intervals become longer in duration to afford your stronger muscle fibers the time to recover for the heavier weights.

Both type 2 muscle fibers are stronger than type 1 muscle fibers, but they are also much more vulnerable to fatigue, which is why you need longer to rest during lower rep sets when using DTP. Upon doing your heaviest sets at the bottom of the pyramid, you then venture back up again, sometimes choosing a different exercise to annihilate the same muscle you've been training.

DTP gives you the opportunity to grill every muscle fiber in the muscle, all within the same workout. The aggressive assault it unleashes on your muscles leaves them with little choice but to grow. It also serves as a potent fat burning workout because of the significant amount of energy your body has to use to complete such a demanding training session.

Let’s Get Specific: Using DTP For Bigger Shoulders

There is no muscle which won’t respond to DTP. The shoulders are no exception to the rule, in fact, they’re particularly likely to grow after exposing them to DTP training. There are some small adjustments I like to make to DTP training for shoulders, to make it even more effective.

This mainly comes from keeping the rest intervals shorter than on most other muscle groups. The shoulders are quite small in comparison to legs, and they are also very resistant to fatigue. The best way to beat the deltoids into submission is to keep the tempo of the workout very high, lashing the muscle fibers with relentless intensity, rep after rep!

With a performance-enhancing cocktail of adrenaline and PRE-KAGED coursing through your veins, you should take this shoulder workout to the gym and unveil the true potential of DTP.
