DT is Dynamic Tension. Makes me want to shake Charles Atlas by the ha...aaaaaaaand!
Basically, apply tension to the muscles all the time or more intensely, briefly in workout scenarios. It translates to the way you sit, the way you stand, the way you lift things (pretend they're heavy and flex accordingly) muscles should always be rippling. Move through the different groups. The tipping point comes when the body is trained like a dog, it expects it. Your muscles will crave input. Path of least resistance is to give in to the demands of the machine. Flex. Constantly.
Try sitting in a room that is a good bit too cold for comfort without developing hypothermia and start flexing everything, arms, shoulders, abs, pecs, lats, obliques, the works. This will heat you up enough to be comfortable but only if you're flexing a bit of you at all times. It's almost like a cheat but it does the job for me.
