Rest time between sets & prohormones vs. steroids

18th September 2009

This article concludes with the obvious “vary your workout routine for best results” but it does survey some interesting research on rest time between sets. For a few weeks you can spike testosterone and HGH with shorter (1 minute) rests between sets. However the difference declines by 5 weeks into a routine. Over 10 weeks, a 2.5 minute rest would show better gains.

This is a decent article, though the facts are somewhat disturbing. Anabolic steroids you inject are safer than all the methylated prohormones you swallow. Yet the safer option is illegal while the more dangerous option is not.
