    When I juiced I would train some muscle groups 2x a week. One heavy day and one light, for example: chest 10 sets of 8 reps on Monday, then chest on Friday 3 sets of 20-30 reps.
    I highly recommend all IronMagLabs supplements!

    probably not everyones, but you can definitely handle more volume on gear because of the increased recovery rate.

    has the 2 on/ 1 off been working for you? if so, stick with with it and just turn up the intensity a bit. (maybe 1-2 extra work sets per exercise.) food and rest are equally important. you're running test to bulk, right?

    c'mon, playa. you know it's one or the other: hypocaloric or hypercaloric. what's it gonna be? what are your stats? what are your ultimate goal stats?

    well look at it this way... if you are 181 at 17%, that's 150# lbm. if you want to be 185 at 8%, that's 170# lbm. you would have to lose 14# fat and gain 20# lbm. see what i mean? it's gotta be one or the other... but i think aas works better and more efficiently when your bf% is down around 10-12%. so, make this a cutter and get down to 170# at 12% or so. then build it up.

    my workouts bascially stay the same on or off cycle. when on I don't really worry about the time spent in the gym as elevated cortisol levels are no longer a concern so I usually take more rest between sets so workouts take longer.

    Thank GOD for some of the brighter people. Hell I'm on a cycle now and trying to increse weight a shit load. I try to stay within a min between sets and find myself running out of gas. Think I'll take a little more time between sets right now and get them extra reps I'm falling short on from working to fast

    Why would you go from 12-14 sets down to an HIT approach? I dont understand why you would reduce volume 7 times unless you were extremely dissatisfied with your results since training as you do now.

    I train a bodypart once a week, relatively low volume except for back work which is somewhere around 20 sets or so.

    Why does anyone think there is a "best" that works for everyone? You have extremely high volume people of the 80s, and you had Dorian Yates and Mike Mentzers doing comparitively nothing.
