    Workout routine while on

    Should your workout change while on. I know you would be lifting heavier,, but would changing up your routine be beneficial? Do you think it's a must?

    there's a big difference between intensity and volume when comparing on cycle and pct, but my routine is similar other than the usual switching it up half way through. not sure if that's the info you were after.

    You gotta do what works best for your body.. but whatever you choose make sure you do it with intensity. I personally lift to failure every set around 6-8 reps per set. It works for me.

    Really eh, failure on every set? Do you do that when you're not on a cycle?

    No, I don't do that off cycle... just when Im on. It puts muscle on me better than any other method. Again, that's me though... everyone's different. Plus I'm in and out of the gym in like 45 minutes - 1 hr depending on body part.

    **obviously not on warm up sets.

    Kind of hard to say without knowing your routine.

    The only thing I changed in my routine was going from chest once a week to twice.

    Are there any other body parts you'll hit more than once?

    Depends on what body parts need the most improvement..

    right now I've tweaked my workouts a bit so I can hit my upper back and shoulders twice a week.. As they a lacking a bit on the rest of my body

    intensity should always be up, on or off cycle. I personally up volume while on !!! On cycle we can damage and repair our muscles way more efficiently,
