    juicin and hittin weights

    Quick question.. I break my worksouts into 1 body part a day 6 days a week. Shoulders/calves ; chest ; back ; legs ; arms ; abs .... I tear it down good 1 body part a week.. is this good to do on a cycle, are should I be doing a push/pull and try to hit body parts 2x a week? What is your workout structure when on a cycle? Personal experience / suggestions?

    theoretically yes, however my workouts are structure so I dont exhaust muscle groups more than needed.. this is done by the way that I space out my workouts. Sunday shoulders/calves, monday back, tuesday chest, wednesday legs, thursday off, friday arms, saturday off, etc...

    Its not just your muscles that need a break. Your CNS (central nervous system) and your tendons need a break too.

    BTW: You grow OUTSIDE the gym. NOT in the gym. How much time do you spend in the gym per day?

    I realize this also...but how does one explain how bodybuilders spend hour after hour..day after day in the gym and grow to be inhuman?

    This is true to a point as to where anabolics come in I believe...I read somewhere that at some point Arnold was spending 4-5 hours a day in the gym.

    Quit reading those magazines. THEY ARE BULL****!


    BTW: The Pros that you read about do spend more time than the average joe in the gym b/c they have something that 97% of us dont have.....

    GOOD GENETICS!

    Well, I run a gym, so technically I am in the gym about 11 hours a day. But my workouts are maybe an hour... hour and a half, and 45 minutes cardio 5 days a week. I'm 6'1'' 244 lbs natural and 11 days into my first cycle 10-12% BF. But I have monsterous genetics. I had 19 inch arms natural

    This question will get you a MILLION different answers as their is NO correct answer. It will be different for everyone. From what you posted it looks like you have great genetics.

    I go by the philosphy if it aint broke DONT fix it.

    You will blow up on this cycle if done correctly. So if you are growing now DONT change it to something you havent tried before.

    training

    I think, if it works for then go ahead especially if you getting a cycle. But you need to change things up alittle this is what I do.
    Mon: chest and triceps
    Tue: legs
    Wed:shoulder
    Thur: back and biceps
    Fri: chest again only because I think my chest is lagging.
