    AS and recovery time

    Just curious. To what extent do AS play a role in recovery time? Is overtraining still anything to worry about while on AS? Do some AS do more than others for this purpose? Will I get laid soon? What is the meaning of life? Why are we here on earth? Should I make a sandwich or order something?

    I forgot, you guys usually ask for stats. I've got blondish/brownish hair, blue eyes, and i consider myself a decent looking guy but i'm no Fabio. Now do you think I'll get laid? And i'm pretty hungry. what do you say sandwich or order something?

    I've done some serious meditation on this question and I've come to the conclusion that no, you will not get laid soon. Also, I say grill up a couple chicken breasts and make a big salad.

    LMFAO! now to the question at hand, recovery time is ALWAYS a major factor in lifting, especially w/ as! some bros lift one body part once a week, giving each body part a weeks break. but that makes me feel fat and worthless so i just give myelf one day breaks and workout so many body parts/day! and remember ........TRAIN, REST AND EAT!

    AAS will help you recover faster and train more often and more intense.
    Overtraining in such and individual thing in my opinion. My body is meant to work I believe, so it is extremely hard for me to overtrain. It's a matter of knowing one's body and what level of work achieves the best results.

    I agree with superjew. While AAS are a huge help in recovery overtraining is still possible. I recommend people try several different workout routines and splits to find what works best for them.

    Bodybuilding isn't about how much you can endure and recover from. AS are no substitute for sound training and diet.

    Yes, they will improve your recovery time. Most AS are anti-catabolic so you avoid some of the pitfalls of over-training there. Some are anti-inflamitory, again something that hedges your bets against over-training.

    I agree with superjew and rickson, taining frequency is something that's very personal. Some people can only work a body part once a day while others seem to tollerate 2 or 3 times a week. When I was younger I would go and train for weeks on end with no break training everything twice a week.

    I never got sore, but I also didn't gain any weight. Looked good though
