    changeing routine while on cycle, need opinions


    Hi, I'm 32 years old, 176lbs, and about 15 to 17% body fat. I've been on a bulking phase for awhile now and gaining about 1.5 lbs a week.
    I plan on starting my first pro-hormone or pro-steroid cycle soon, not sure wich one yet. Nor-Aderm or maybe One+ I haven't decided yet.
    My present routine is:
    Monday: chest/biceps/abs
    Tuesday: legs
    Wednesday: off
    Thursday: shoulders/triceps
    Friday: back/abs

    I thought I would switch to this next routine so every body part would get worked three times every two weeks.

    New routine:
    Monday: back/chest/biceps/abs
    Tuesday: off
    Wednesday: legs/shouders/triceps/abs
    Thursday: off
    Friday: same as monday

    On the following Monday I would rotate and start with Wednesday's routine . I would also do only two excersises per body part and try to keep these workouts to 1 1/2 hours.

    Does this sound like a good idea or should stick with my 1st routine?

    Well you are on a cycle, but that doesnt make you superman. If I were anyone on a PH or AAS cycle, I would give GVT a try. Its awesome for pure mass. Theres a sticky on it in this section if you're interested. Otherwise, you can probably get away with training each muscle twice a week, minus legs, chest and back. These are big muscle groups and need adequate time to recover.

    Thanks YellowJacket, I will read up on GVT.

    On the last routine I mentioned it would only be every other week that certain body parts would get worked twice per week. And the volume would be smaller.
    For example on wednesday I would do:
    Squats, leg curls, calve raises for legs
    DB presses, upright rows, bentover lateral raised for shoulders
    Close grip bench press and press downs for ticeps
    and then abs.

    Thats a long day in the gym, try to get in and out in 60 minutes or less. I say work 2 body parts a day....each body part high intensity, heavy once a week.....but thats me, different things work different for each person, you have to find what works for you.

    I train my whole body in two sessions like you have mentioned. My split is a push/pull routine.
    Workout A-Chest, shoulders, tris, quads, calves
    Workout B-Back, traps, hams, bis, abs
    4 sets per bodypart of one exersise. All compound movements. Usually 2 on, 1 off, 1 on, 1 off. But all depending on how I feel. No sets to failure. I've had the most success with this style of training.

    How long have you been doing this type of routine and what kind of gains have you gotten from it?
    I have been wanting to go to that type of roitine for a while now but just haven't gotten aroung to change mine up yet.
    I have been doing the first routine I listed for a long time now.

    I have been doing the first routine I listed for a long time now.
    I've been using this only about 4 months or so, have gained 30 pounds about(15 of which from androgens, some fat of course as well.) With the routine I posted, you'll have to change up some sets depending on the bodypart, or take an extra day off here and there. I workout based on how I "feel", if I don't feel recovered, I'll take an extra day, it's not really a set schedule.

    EDIT: Actually, I've been using it almost 6 months. I didn't realize how far back the summer was. Time is really flying....

    Abs

    Tuesday: rest

    Legs:
    Squats 10,8, 2x6
    Leg culrs 3x8

    Shoulders:
    DB shoulder presses 10,8,6
    Upright rows 10,8,6
    Bent over lateral raises 3x8

    Tris:
    Close grip bench 10,8,6
    Press downs rotated with skull cruchers 3x8

    Standing calve raised 12,10,8

    Thanks for the thoughts bros. I am thinking of doing GVT when I do my cycle in March for max gains. I want what I want and I know how I like it.
