    Smile Long Time Listener, 1st Time Caller.... Help Appreciated with Routine/Epi cycle


    4 Days ago I began an Epidrol Cycle which will be 6 weeks total. (20/30/30/30/40/30)
    ----Basically I have 120 pills of 10mg each. I am in the first week and am very open to any suggestions or constructive comments about how to cycle these over a 6 week period. So if you guys think I could spread these out more appropriately, let me know!
    ---This will be my second Epidrol cycle, after responding well to my first cycle which ended in mid May (20/20/20/20/30/30/30)


    Also my current routine has been as follows

    Day 1:Chest/Tris
    Day 2:Back/Bi's
    Day 3:Shoulders
    Day 4:Chest/Tri's
    Day 5:Back/Bi's
    Day6:Legs (DL's & Squats included)
    Day7:Shoulders
    Lather, Rinse, and Repeat
    Also (No hate please) I run about 5 miles every evening


    I cannot bring myself to take an off day, especially on cycle, I don't want to feel like I'm wasting a day of precious Epidrol lol

    My goal is Hypertrophy>Strength
    Yes, Vain. Don't be mad.

    My questions are...
    -Is this an alright workout schedule while on cycle?
    -If not, How/why is this detrimental?
    -If I MUST take 1 or more off days, when should it be?


    Help appreciated on cycle distribution and workout schedule.
    Thanks Bros

    Edit: Also I know I don't have reps yet on here, but if you give me solid advice and you have a bb.com account I can give you 10k+ reps on there

    If that's all the pills you have try 20/20/30/30/30/40 you will be 20mg short so the last week do 30mg the first day of the last week...and as for your workout you deff need time off try this

    Chest/tri
    Back/bi
    Legs
    Shoulders/Abs
    Off
    Either repeat or take a second day off...just listen to your body

    Your work out schedule could definitely be improved since Shoulders and Chest/Tri back-to-back essentially twice a week is a bit of overkill. Remember that more isn't always better. It's more personal preference but I believe that doing chest and back back-to-back days will hinder your strength on the 2nd workout day since if you're benching properly your upper back should be fatigued the next day.

    Chest/Tris
    Legs/Abs
    Back/Bis
    Off
    Legs/Abs
    Shoulders/Tris
    Off

    That's what I do personally but having two off days a week is better to keep yourself primed for the whole cycle. You don't want to wear yourself out.

    Ya know, thank you...
    I almost feel like I knew this would be a much better route to take than my current schedule, but I just wanted to hear it from someone else.

    And on the cycle question, My friends told me to do it the way you mapped out also.
    Thanks for being a voice of reason

    Hmm Good point, I never used to do chest and back one day after another, maybe I should split it up.
    Sounds like a good idea.
    I did shoulders today and I'm gonna try to mix it up a bit tomorrow and do some olympic lifts with my buddy and see how that goes...lol...

    to be honest though, Idk if I could do legs as often as you have written down. I want at least 2 days a week to be able to walk downstairs without cringing lol
