    Resting on aas

    I am a firm believer in listening to your body. And I can easily tell when I need an extra day off. Maybe after a hard leg day or really hard back day.

    But I never quite get it the other way around.

    Question is. Do you all take less days off when on aas. I've been on a one day off one day on. Hardcore workouts. Which seems to best for me for building size. But some days. Like today. I feel like I can easily workout with same intensity. (On cycle of prop/tren /dbol ) Without doing the 1/1 split. Shoulders, traps and tris were yesterday.

    Rough example of my workout routine

    Day 1- Chest and biceps
    incline bench press - 2 warm up sets with half weight 3 sets of 10-15
    Bench press - 3 sets of 10-15
    Chest flys- 3 sets of 10-15
    Pullover - 3 sets of 20

    Day 2 - LEGS
    Leg Extensions - 3 sets of 15-20
    Lying Leg curls - 3 sets of 15-20
    Squat - 3 sets of 15-20
    Standing calf raises - 3 sets of 15-20
    Sitting calf raises - 3 sets of 15-20

    Day 3 - Shoulders, lats, triceps
    Front press - 3 sets of 10-15
    Front raises - 2 sets of 10-20
    Lateral raises 2 sets of 10-20
    shrugs - 3 sets of 20
    Close grip bench(halfway down) 3 sets of 15-20
    overhead tri extensions - 3 sets of 15
    3 sets of 20-50 crunches or situps

    Day 4 - Back
    pull ups wide grip - 2 sets to failure
    pull ups underhand close grip - 2 sets
    Deadlifs - 4 sets 10-15
    Barbell row - 3 sets of 15-20

    Rest every other day

    I follow ol' Dorian's routine. 2 on, 1 off. Seems to work perfect. I also time the heavy compounds to the day before a rest. While on gear, I do tend to rest less just because of the fact that on the sauce you recoup quicker. But again, thats me, after 18 years of iron I can tell my body. Other people might feel different.

    Forgot to say that the normally I do take a week off during a cycle. Normally around week 6/7ish. Just happens that way all the time, either work or vacation etc, and it helps me with all the joints and ligaments.

    I feel time off is just as important as lifting but when on cycle you may not need as many days off.

    I train 4 days a week on or off. I would rather go in and crush it in four days as opposed to 5 or 6 ok workouts.....attendance doesn't matter that way. You grow out of the gym, not in it.

    My current routine is 2 days ON 1 day OFF and it works well for me.
    I train the same amount of days per week ON cycle as I do OFF cycle,,often
    only the reps and volume will change.

    I tend to always feel with AAS I can go hard almost every day. It really depends. I'm a 6 day a week guy, legs twice, but at least 2 of those days involve what I feel is very little CNS overload and can get away with higher volume and without optimal sleep and nutrition.

    The AAS can definitely trick you into thinking your unbreakable.

    Was just about to make a post about this, since starting tren 4 weeks ago I have taken 2 days off. Thinking this might be a bad idea.

    Training is only the stimulation for growth. You grow while resting. And how much you grow is very much dependant on your diet. You have to eat to grow.
