    I appreciate the guy but I’m never sure how applicable his findings are to people running aas.

    You shall know the truth and the truth will make you odd.

    My thoughts exactly, Mate. Even he acknowledges the lack of training experience in the lower bodies of some in this study could have contributed to their 'beginner gains'. Toss in the recovery benefits from AAS and I too question how far that threshold of diminishing returns from volume is extended.

    There are so many studies out there that contradict themselves. Unless you are those particular people, nothing about this study will pertain to you. Every individual is different and will react differently to different styles of training.

    The one thing that I agree with is that the participants in this study likely reacted differently due to their experience levels.

    I am a firm believer in low volume, high intensity. I've put on more muscle training 3 days per week than I ever did training 5.

    Youtube can be a training aid or a source of great confusion. I saw a vid once where Tom Platz recommended high reps AND high weight. A separate vid shows him deep squatting 500 for 23 reps, so I guess he, and those legs, proved his point.

    My problem is what do I do to get 500x20, besides just doing 200x20 and adding 5lbs every week lol.

    I have considered steroids, and they've been very considerate to me.

    I have to ask you guys and anyone else who feels like answering this, do you really feel that AAS decreases your recovery time? I have heard this everywhere from the media when speaking about PED's to many guys here but I never felt it helped my recovery.
