    Question Is this normal?

    Hey its my first cycle and I was just wondering if what I was experienced was normal.
    When I wasn't juicing I found it fairly easy to max out with enough lifting and would usually wake up sore the next morning.
    Now that I am on the juice, I find that maybe after an hour I can max out whatever group I am doing, can't lift another weight if my life depended on it.
    But then by the time I leave the gym, so maybe 15 minutes later I feel like 90-95% normal and a couple hours later perfectly normal just a bit tired.
    I don't wake up sore in the morning anymore.
    Things I have changed are my diet and I use near-perfect biomechanical form for my exercises
    So I guess my question is this:
    am I not working out hard enough or is the juice just recovering me much, much faster? Cuz right now I feel like i should be pushing myself twice daily in the gym
    thanks for any input!

    Are you working your muscle group to failure? Try 3 sets 8,6,4 increasing weight every set. I am sure you do this already but just thought I would add it...

    pushing yourself twice a day is just overkill and honestly only you can tell if you're not working out hard enough in the gym, i mean on or off cycle, after i get done i can't lift hardly anything.

    Your recovery is much much greater... when Im on I do "light day" for my major muscles... Normally I only work them out once a week, but while on I add a few more excersices when Im recoverd... so instead of only doing chest once a week.. I do a light day with high reps 3-4 days later. I like it
