    training on gear

    i reallyyy hate rest day a LOT.

    I know rest is important, but do you think it is ok to be training 6-7 days in a row with balls to wall intensity when being on 3 different types of steroids(tren, test, adrol) and also eating a lot?

    Your bodys central nervous system needs time to recover. 7 days is too much

    GVT (German Volume Training) is considered to be one of the most hard core training protocols....and it's still outlined 5 on 2 off. My GVT protocol....

    Day One
    Chest
    Barbell or dumbbell bench press 10x10
    Chin-ups 10x10
    Dumbbell pullovers 3x10
    Back
    Barbell rows or cable rows 3x10

    Day Two
    Abdominals
    Leg lifts 3x15
    Reverse crunches 3x15
    Side crunch 3x15
    Double crunch 3x15
    Crunch 3x15
    Hyperextensions 3x15

    Day Three
    Legs
    Squats or leg press 10x10
    Deadlifts 10x10
    Seated calf raises 3x15
    Standing calf raises 3x15

    Day Four
    Abdominals
    Same as Day Two

    Day Five
    Arms and Shoulders
    Parallel dip bars 10x10
    Preacher curls 10x10
    Arnold presses 3x10
    Side bench raises 3x10

    GVT is easy to comprehend, but hard to do. A word of warning....you will be sore. This is no-holds barred training; pain will be intense. GVT is extremely effective, but not for the light-hearted. First, pick an exercise for three body parts. Perform 10 sets of 10 reps at 70 to 75 percent of your one-rep max for each exercise. Use a stopwatch and allow yourself only one minute?s rest between sets.

    German volume training, also known as the "ten sets method," is a very effective way to put on muscle fast. The ten sets method was used in Germany in the off-season to help weightlifters gain lean body mass.

    GVT involves, rather simply, doing ten sets of the same exercise, with the goal being to do ten reps per set. The traditional method to decide your initial weight is to select an amount of resistance that you can do 20 times, and for most people, this equates to a weight that's approximately 60% of your 1RM (the maximum amount of weight you can lift one time on any given exercise).

    Again, for most this is still too much. I don't run my programs like this year round, but I do swim 30 laps every morning.

    well the reason i did legs today(end of week) was bcuz i couldnt train them seriously(squats, legpress of lunges) for 2 weeks because of the painful injections. and i got grape oil to cut it, and now my ass is fine and today was the first day i could wreck my legs..

    And your split above would be impossible for me to do. I cannot rest that much. i tweak and need to workout.. a pump is like a high for me. and i cant only be high 4 times a week haha

    As long as you're not training any body part more than once a week, 5-6 days is prob the max you want to lift with high intensity. Some people only train one body part per day while others do 2 & 3 so the number of days a person who only trains only body part will be more than the guy doing several muscle groups. I would let the muscle fully recover before training it again. Training sore muscles is a clear indication of overtraining and thus will result in loss of gains. Also, weight lifting weakens your immune system so keeping your immune system as healthy as possible is crucial IMO.

    good post..yea its been 5 days since my chest workout, and i know it is usually fully healed by day 4..but im worried about over exhausting my body as a whole.

    also keep in mind i am also using insulin, so my recovery is at least 10% better(estimation)

    most of the time I do 5 days in a row then rest a day, sometimes 6

    then sometimes 4 in a row followed by a rest day

    and this is without any sauce

    it's what works best for ME (i need to train MORE than most people to see any kind of result)

    I found out, through a lot of experimentation
