Training Regime on a Cycle

I have gone for a 4 session split:

One:
Quads: Front Squat 4 x8, Leg press 4 x 6, Leg Curl 4 x 6
Calves: Donkeys 5 x 15

Two:
Shoulders: Dumbell press 4 x 6, Lateral raises 3 x 10, front raises 3 x 10 ALTERNATE rear delts 4 x 12
Triceps: press down 4 x 8, Skull crushers 4 x 8 ALTERNATE kickbacks 4 x 8
Forearms: curls 3 x 8

Three:
Back: Deadlifts 4 x 4 Bent over dumbells 4 x 8, seated row 4 x 8
Hamstrings: SLDL 4 x 8

Four:
Chest: Bench 4 x 6, Flies 4 x 8, Incline dumbells 4 x 6 ALTERNATE decline dumbells 4 x 6
Biceps: Incline bicep curls 4 x 6, Hammers 4 x8, Cable 4 x 6

I think a lot may say this is too much but I find I respond best with a lot of training, my body seems to adapt better than reduce exercises... I mean I go on holiday for a week and feel like I've taken 3 steps backwards!

Also, while on a cycle how should I split this?

I want to train everyday... twice a day but know that'll be too much. 4 days - rest - 4 days - rest ?

One problem is Day 3: two lots of deadlifts... but SLDL imo are not as intense as standard DL so should be ok can anyone can suggest better split??

Any suggestions on how to improve this?

Thanks!!!

    riding a bike whilst doing all that is mighty impressive

    if though you are talking about how to train on AAS then you are IMO not ready for AAS

    what are your trying to gain from the training?

    I have never actually done this... is something i have drafted which include my preferred/favoured exercises and reduced rep range in what i imagined would be more beneficial to training whilst on a cycle whilst giving each muscle group enough recovery

    strength?

    Triceps: press down 4 x 8, Skull crushers 4 x 8 ALTERNATE kickbacks 4 x 8


    TBH mate get some base reading done

    low reps
    compound work
    FBRs probably the best way

    yeah i can see no need for the kickbacks as not going to aid strength a great deal in the tricep and more of a definition exercise but that's what i was looking for... some criticism on it! it was something i put together trying to work what i feel is good for myself.

    my usual routine is pretty similar to tony starks 4 day split with a few variations which has worked well but was trying to change training while on gear as i believed lower reps and heavier weight would improve my strength more.
