    How often do you train while "On"?


    I am asking this question more or less to gauge whether people workout more often or the same when they are taking ANY form of AAS or PH.

    I know this will be helpful for me personally becuase I am now using a 2/1 split and am running my first cycle longer than 4 weeks, sometime next month. And I assume it will help others.

    I am trying to figure out whether the majority will keep with thier current styles or not to help gauge whether or not to change up my routine.

    Also, after you vote (public poll), please let me know how often you work out while off and while on, if not the same.

    I usually train a little more while on, I feel like I can get the most out of my cycle that way, plus recovery time is almost none existent.

    When on I can just physically handle more training, volume, weight, and more days within a given period before feeling the need for a day of rest. While on I take days off more from need to rest my CNS, joints, and psychologically needing a day versus when normal my body and muscles will jus feel totally sore and exhausted and I know i need a day or 2 off. I seldom feel that way when on even when training with more intensity weight and volume for longer splits.

    My schedule only allows me to train so often and therefore it remains the same regardless. Although while 'on' I do take advantage of any chance I get to hit up the weight room, but my basic workout routine remains the same.

    The real question should be, how often do you hit each body part a week while "on". # of workouts is irrelevant with all of the variations of routines.

    Well no. I workout with a 2/1 routine right now and am thinking about using it when i run my next cycle. So basically I have the opportunity to hit each body part once, and possibly twice during a 7 day span.

    Asking if you train more or less makes perfect sense.

    i like to still work out only 4 times a week, but i just hit every bodypart so heavy and add another 3 or 4 sets on, so about 16 sets a bodypart at 5-7 reps a set.

    While "on", I work out the same frequency, but with more intensity. I'll still work out a body part once every three days, regardless. IMO, even though you might be "on", your muscles still need 72 hours to recover, especially if you're hitting them harder!

    I train with exactly the same intensity every session, no matter what I'm on. As soon as you begin treating these "supplements" like magic beans, you will fall into a trap of always needing to use them. Treat them like stepping stones. They're there to break a plateau and help stimulate new growth.
