    On Cycle Rep Ranges and more

    I'm a little curious about training while on cycle, since this is my first cycle.

    My strength gains have been predictable, in a good way, however, mass isn't as obvious.

    I'm asking because I have been an advocate of lower volume/ higher intensity but not nessarily DC or classic HIT training.

    As far as hypertrophy training goes, I realize it is somewhere in the 8-12 rep range.

    I just wonder if I should be increasing the number of sets, and doing higher reps for hypertrophy, or doing a mix of strength (lower rep 3-6) and hypertrophy (8-12) sets.

    Oh and that brings up another questions: rest intervals. 30 seconds? 2 minutes?

    I'm sure it all depends on your goals. My #1 goal is hypertrophy followed by #2 goal strength. I guess these goals conflict in some ways, but are interconnected in others.

    What is your experience with on cycle training?

    TUT anyone?

    Supersets? (never did them off cycle)
