I thought about putting this in the beginner section, but I think an opportunity to talk about training is always a good thing and though the concept may seem basic there is a lot of opportunity for depth.

A natural' s best path to progress is progressive loading and just so I imagine when cycling / blasting. But how do you compensate for the hyper - recovery and strength gain? Where my goal week to week may be 5lbs increase in legs/back and 1.25-2.5lb on chest / arms how will this change during a cycle?

I know people say go by feel but how do you feel you can go 15lbs heavier that night over what you have planned, and then track real progress if next week you can't do the same weight or better?

I realize in bodybuilding you aren't chasing numbers, rather growth, but it's the easiest measuring stick to track.

How do you fully utilize the hyper - recovery when blasting, or maximize the short time frame for progress (12 weeks versus 6 months)?

I've been using the same weights for the last 6 years and gained 70+ lbs bodyweight, the thing that changed is my form and how I feel the muscle over the years

Thanks for the replies. Admittedly, I have an analytical mind and desire to maximize the returns on investment (if that makes sense). Just my nature.

So the additional protein synthesis / recovery on it's own will suffice, just do things as normal per standard progressive overload programming and my body will do the rest?


Grats on those gains goal. Learning to specifically feel and target a muscle definitely reaps benefits compared to just moving weight.

I've debated myself on this topic many times!

its difficult to know if your program/programming is working when you're using PEDs.. You'll always find yourself questioning if it was one or the other.

I find too many people take their foot off the gas when coming off gear in all aspects .. like they get so caught up in the mental aspect of not having it in their bodies that they will be incredibly weak and all this other shit when in reality you should still be pushing yourself , eating right and staying on track.... As many of the vets on here say , drugs are not the end all be all... They help a lot of course but training and diet make up the large majority of the equation... Tons of tren helps lol.... But I digress, don't over think it or get too caught up in it mentally.... Sure I have a little extra gas when I'm running a lot of shit, but I always tell people it's more like I have an extra gear for a set and I recover a bit better.

Eventually you go by feel. This can change from day to day depending on a lot of variables. If you plan to get x amount of reps and pick up that weight and it feels heavy or light, throw your ego aside, and swap out the weight for what is more appropriate. Your workouts can be calculated but you should adjust them for you, even the resistance.

Autoregulation is a great tool!
