    Training Routine w/ Prohormones..


    So I followed a routine last year, that was definitely higher volume (each workout took around 60-80 minutes, and I made HUGE gains on it, but eventually plateaued/burned out (lifting mon/tue/thur/fri).. I have been doing a recomp routine for about a month now, recovering to go back into intense bodybuilding, except this time I will be running a PH w/ it. My question is, as far as training goes, I'd like to run that same routine, since I honestly was making great size gains on it. Thus, would my body respond even better to the routine this time around since I'm running the PH? I want to make the best gains I can, while not having to worry about 'burning out.' Although I am assuming with the PH I won't have to really worry about 'burnout.' Please share your thoughts, thanks!

    Here's the routine I was following before..

    Monday: Upper Heavy

    Incline Bench (Barbell) - 2x5-6 , 1x10-15 (burn set)
    TBar Row or Barbell Row - 2x5-6 , 1x10-15 (burn set)
    Pushpress - 2x5-6 , 1x10-15 (burn set)
    Lat Pulldown - 2x5-6 , 1x10-15 (burn set)
    Cable Lateral Raise SS w/ Rear Lateral Raise - 3x10-15
    (Standing Straight / Bent Over)

    Tuesday: Lower Light

    Squats - 2x5-6 , 1x5-6 (backoff set) , 1x10-15 (burn set)
    Stiffleg Deadlifts or Glute Ham Raises - 4x8-15
    Tricep Extensions SS w/ Barbell Curl - 4x10-15
    Dumbbell Lunges - 4x5-6

    Wednesday: Off

    Thursday: Upper Light

    Incline Bench (Dumbbells) - 4x6-10
    Hammer Pulldown/back Machine - 4x6-10
    Flat or Decline Dumbbell - 4x6-10
    Dumbbell or Hammer Strength Row - 4x6-10
    Incline Dumbbell Fly - 3x6-10
    Dumbbell Lateral Raise SS w/ Rear Deltoid Fly - 3x6-10

    Friday: Heavy Lower

    Deadlift - 3x3, 1x10-12 (burn set)
    Front Squat or Barbell Lunge - 3x5-10
    Leg Press - 3x5-6
    Leg Curl - 3x5-6
    Dumbbell Hammer Curl SS w/ Dip - 3x5-6

    I'm guessing I need to change those rep ranges.. Maybe the sets too.. Since I'll be using a PH and I am trying to bulk, maybe I should change most of the lifts to 4x8-12? Anyone? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    I think higher reps, as possible, and gradual weight increases are key to any routine.

    What do you think about the number of sets? And what are your thoughts on the major compound lift rep ranges (i.e. deads, squats, pushpress, etc)?

    Looks good, no more than 4 or less than 3, keep reps as high as possible and add weight in small increments. I think you should really blast off with that.

    Good point, unfortunately that happens sometimes. If you start cycle at minimum load, and sometimes this is harder than full weight, then increase as absorbtion does, burnout can be delayed till PCT. JMO

    Thanks man.
    I will be taking 1 week rest before starting the cycle. Once I start the cycle, I will go straight into that routine. Since I will be fresh back into it, I am assuming I will be alright since of course I won't be going directly into my heaviest weights. It will take me a few days to adapt and get to my full potential at my peak weight/rep range.
