    IA's Simple Power or New Routine while on hdrol cycle?


    I'm starting an hdrol cycle in a couple weeks. I've been doing IA's simple power for about 2 months now and have still been making strength gains (a little mass). However, it's a 3 day/week cycle utilizing mostly 5 and 8 reps with 3-4 sets per exercise. Mostly compound lifts.

    I've never done a cycle before and was wondering if it would be beneficial/necessary to use a more "intense" routine, something with more volume perhaps? Maybe Max-OT (which has worked well for me in the past) or another traditional 5 day split?

    I do like IA's Simple Power and would love to continue if possible. I just don't want to miss out on any mass gains during the hdrol cycle.

    Thanks!

    I'm also going on hdrol soon and was wondering the same thing. I was thinking of incorperating DC into my lifting (extreme stretching and rest sets...)
