    5x5 strength training routine on AAS

    Okay so when I do finally start my first cycle I was curious if the way I train would be good or not. Maybe this is how you train, maybe you have vast experience/knowledge on the subject.

    So my question to my fellow members.. Once I start my AAS should I be bodybuilding or strength training? I know the differences in benefits of BB and PL. I was more curious of the metabolic physical effects of steroids . I just thought maybe I could cut with this way of training and still look well defined/ripped.

    For those who don't know which workout I'm referring to. It basically goes as follows.

    Example: (All Free Weight - no assistance)
    5x5 = 5 sets of 5 reps

    Monday: Workout A
    Squat 5x5
    Bench Press 5x5
    Rows 5x5

    Wednesday: Workout B
    Squat 5x5
    Overhead Press 5x5
    Deadlift 1x5

    Friday: Workout A
    Squat 5x5
    Bench Press 5x5
    Rows 5x5

    So pretty much it's 3 days a week, alternating between workout A and B. First week A, B, A second week B, A, B. Each time adding weight to the bar only if you hit every rep. If you fail a rep you must do the same weight of that exercise next time. So your always pushing yourself and hitting new PR's (personal records).

    It's my understanding this will give you overall strength and size whilst burning fat. Squatting 3 days a week hits your core hard (this I know from experience).

    P.S. The workout above is just until you get the most out of it, you then progress on to a more advanced version. That was just to give you a basic understanding of a strength training workout.

    Which will I benefit from more? Bodybuilding or Strength training?
    Assuming I already have an overall strong foundation and decent size.


    What's your thoughts/opinions?

    I just did a 16 week pl routine on cycle and it was great. If you goal is to be a stronger BB then a PL routine will asist you. Be aware that you are training lifts and not totally for hypertrophy. This routine will make you more well rounded and yes you will still gain size.

    Haha thanks.. That was pretty basic ha!

    So pretty much I will be bulky but not really cut.
    I guess I just wondered if because of the use of ASS I would get cut as well. Not 100 percent sure on the physical side effects that come with roids.
    I made an edit on my OP, just to be more clear in my question I have.

    Read up on 5/3/1 for body building. It's kinda a power/building program.

    Being cut up is all about diet.
