Recovery time while ON cycle
I know the popular word for the routine you follow while on a PH cycle is too just do what works for you..but lets put that aside, when on cycle, we ARE ON STEROIDS, so it would seem like it would only make sense to train more often, and higher volume. Can I get some thoughts on how frequently on can train on cycle, and not over train, because personally I love the idea of hitting a muscle often, going heavy and high sets on each session.
Here is an example routine I would love to follow as long I would gain well from it, tell me what you think.
M - Push
T - Pull
W - Legs
T - Push
F - Pull
S - Legs

I lift an extra day or two while on. But rest days are important also. 2 a days are what I see as the best, you have the Tes to do it. I would lift 5x a wk with 3 days, 2 a days. But its only going to work if you give the muscle groups enough rest so how you organize things will play a big role too.
I would break things up more: shoulders, arms, back, chest, legs, abs&cardio. But doing lots of the big three lifts is essential.....(dead, squat, bench)

And what your saying, you think I should do a split rather than group up based on movements?

Your muscles have a better recovery but your central nervous system will burn out if not conditioned. You can train harder, longer and more often, but watch the cns issue and to stop before that fine line, my suggestion is to not go to failure on every set. For example, every set if you can get 12 reps, stop at 10 and so on.

I agree with 72hrs for natty training but while on cycle you can push it harder.
When Im on cycle i do chest & arms (back & legs, etc) during one workout, but i dont do as many sets as if i was hitting one muscle group a day for a wk. but you have to assess your own body. chances are its different than mine.
what PH are you running?? whats your plan for the cycle

The initial plan is primarily to add as much mass as I can, though I would love to jump in strength too. PCT and ON cycle support is all planned, the only thing confusing me is how to approach my training. As for my natty training, I've found that my pushing muscles grow after 72 hours of rest between, such as this, hit my chest delts and tris on Monday, then plan to hit them on Friday, on Thursday night, this happens every time, I can feel, and see that my chest has grown. as for pushing, im gifted with them, and 48 hours is all I need to feel and see the growth. it this that is really making my head spin of how I should train when I run my Halotest.

you always want to change up your training schedule.

tbh, the rate and percentage to which you recover is going to be dicated more by your diet and sleep pattern than it is by the gear you are taking.
At least this has been my personal experience

honestly I don't know bro. I know for me personally I know my limit ON and off, and they are exactly the same.

A LOT goes into training, and overtraining. More specifically your CNS also plays a huge role in your training. You tax your CNS everytime you train, and while AAS does exhibits its anabolic effects on your muscles, it has no effect on your CNS.
I train extremely hard anyways, however my body is not physically able to train any more frequently when i am ON than when I am off without feeling the effects of overtraining.
