Does your work-out routine changes when you are on and off steroids???
Here is a sample of steroid workout from this website. I am sure you all have seen it:
Day 1: Chest, biceps
Bench presses 3 sets 6- 8 reps
Incline bench presses 2 sets 6- 8 reps
Dips with added weights 2 sets 8-10 reps
Barbell curls 3 sets 6-10 reps
Dumbbell curls 2 sets 6-10 reps
Day 3: Thighs
Squats 3 sets 6-10 reps
Leg presses 2 sets 8-10 reps
Leg curls 2 sets 8-10 reps
Day 5: Shoulder, triceps
Presses behind neck 3 sets 6- 8 reps
Upright row 2 sets 8-10 reps
Side laterals 2 sets 8-10 reps
Lying triceps presses 3 sets 6-10 reps
Triceps pulley pushdown 2 sets 8-10 reps
Day 7: Back. calves
Chins with added weight 3 sets 8-10 reps
Lat pull to neck 2 sets 8-10 reps
Barbell bent-over row 2 sets 6-10 reps
Seated cable row 2 sets 6-10 reps
Standing calf raise 3 sets 8-12 reps
Seated calf raise 2 sets 8-12 reps
Now...it says that this is not suitable for natural body builders??? Why?? Why can't I do this while I am off steroids ? What would be the problem? And if so....could anyone tell me what would be a good workout routine while your off roids? Thanks!

dunno, I do 12-16 sets daily (one muscle group / day) and i'm natural...not to mention a chick

personally i say 12 working sets MAX for a bodypart. i only do 10 sets total for quads and hamstrings.
ps im natural.
You have to find what works for you. Any more takes too long and is to tiring, any less and i dont stimulate enough muscle fibres for growth.

its all about overtraing bro...you dont want to do that...
you can do that program and not overtrain though...but if you push each of those sets to the max and beyond..then you are in trouble...but if you are on roid..you can max out each set and be alright

i wouldn't say the routine would change but def. the volume of training and i rest more off cycle.

its all about the intensity during your workout. When you're off your cycle, you can still go heavy but naturally you arent gonna have the same strength nor intensity to do the same workouts meanwhile makeing the risk of overtrainig.
