Following parts 1, 2 and 3, it is likely best to take a step back and review development as well as address potential concerns of early users of the DMC system. For those who have gone through the program to-date, the typical problems experienced relate to basically insufficient lower body strength as evidenced by the inability to maintain body position during longer holds. Not only does this suggest the lack of appropriate balance between the upper and lower body, as well as poor relative, posterior-chain and core strength, but it reveals an insufficient work threshold.

As you consider the advanced demands of DMC as shown by these problems, you'll come to the conclusion it is possibly the best form of weighted general physical preparation work available, while requiring no costly and cumbersome equipment. That might not make it too popular amongst the equipment providers, but it is for this reason that professional coaches, athletes and elite-level trainers have made it an indispensable part of their training.

Returning to typical stumbling blocks an individual usually runs into with " In Search of Power, Part 4," we're going to augment our DMC training session with additional resistance work that is not only taxing but continuous along the overall theme of minimalist equipment needs. It is important to understand the addition of resistance work is an important consideration for professional trainers and coaches as it bears on some of the errors prevalent in weight-training today. It's worth noting that far too often external loading (i.e. "weights") are added before an individual can maintain posture / proper body position while under duress. At no-time should an individual perform exercises with poor posture when equally "supplemental" work can be added that will shore up weak spots, particularly targeting the posterior but in a manner to ensure perfect technique.

This is, of course, a slippery slope as you must find exercises that address weaknesses but can be done correctly. As an example, I might recommend that an individual perform Squats, while emphasizing that they must be done correctly.

While most users note a shockingly high demand on upper-body strength in the DMC
