You're exactly right. Steroid users need more contractions to maximize the drug. That is the nature of the compound. Few naturals will thrive on volume work.

To quote Dharkam:

Since muscle contraction is one of the main up-regulators of androgen receptors, the harder your muscle contracts, the more androgen receptors you'll get.
This is why volume works well with steroids. They amplify the effects of the drug. Intense muscle contractions are also helpful for steroid routines.

Naturals just need progression with heavy compound movements, and very little else.
