New Guy - Anavar Only Cycle Log
Have been on the site for a month just reading and decided to register/post today. I plan to use this space as a log and I will try to be as detailed as I can - time permitting.
I'm 26, have been lifting since HS football started and I was 14. During that period of time there was a long span where I was very serious about working out/eating right/and taking the best possible care of my body. There were also periods where I stopped lifting, ate like ****, and did not treat my body with any regards. Long story short, I am at a time in my life where I have found a renewed desire to train, be healthy, and try to better myself everyday. I've tried many approaches over time and think I have a routine down now that I really enjoy mainly because I've incorporated some new ideas, exercises, and freshness to my routine. A big problem I would have in the past is burning out from the same routine.
I have previous experience with PHs (Superdrol - the original one from DS, and M1T)
I have been back at it in the gym for the last 2 months now and have decided this is the direction I am going to go. Fully aware this may not be the preference of many (Oral only cycle, no test, Anavar by itself). Goal wise - I am looking to keep a more athletic - defined look rather than blowing back up.
5'9 212lbs, eventual end goal is to get around 195 however I'll be paying more attention to the mirror than the scale.
Weeks 1-5 = 50mg Var split in to 2 doses (am/pm)
Weeks 6-8 = 75mg Var split in to 2 doses (am/pm)
PCT = 40/40/20/20 mg of Nolva
I am leaving open the option to bump the dosage to 75mg later in the cycle - if my body is responding good to 50mg than I may not bump it at all.
TTA (have been on this for last month, will finish out this 2nd bottle. 2grams/day. Have had no issues with cramping or feeling tired)
XTend (2scoops pre/during workout and post workout)
Craze (1.5scoops preworkout)
4-5 Fish Oil caps
Workout split (included most of the things that I do on each day, not all. Each day has its core workouts that I always do but I mix around a lot with the other exercises to keep it fresh). After I finish my core exercises, I like to pick the pace up - go lighter in weight, and work more exercises/reps in. Deadlifts, Military Press, Power Cleans, Squats, and Incline Bench are exercises that I do a 5x5 split.
On the 2 days I list as circuit - my gym has an area with tires, ropes, a mountain climbing machine, trx bands and this is some new stuff that I've incorporated in to my training. I keep the pace very fast and do little circuits of 2-3 exercises. This usually last 20-25minutes. I warm up with 15minutes on a bike on lifting days.
Back (5x5 deadlift, 3x8 v-bar(dont know what to call it) pull downs, 3x8 bent over 2 arm long bar rows)
Shoulders (5x5 front military press on smith machine, 5x5 power clean, 3x8 highpulls, 3x8 lateral raises)
Cardio/Bi's/Circuit (30min walk at 4.5incline/3.5mph)(3-4 bicep exercises)(flip tires, throw heavy balls, rope pulls, sandbags, trx suspension, shuttle runs)
Legs (5x5 squats, 3x10 leg extensions, 3x10 hamstring curls, 3x10 calf raises)
Chest (5x5 incline bench, 3x10 dumbbell bench, 3x10 hammer machine, 3x12 cable crossover)
Cardio/Tri's/Circuit (same as day 3)
Cardio (45min walk at 4.5incline/3.5mph)
I am trying to keep my diet as clean as my life allows me to. For the most part I've been able to do just that. Example from today:
8:45 -10eggwhite omlet on rye bread
10:30 - workout
11:45 - post workout shake + apple
2:30 - canned tuna
5:00 - grilled chicken with broccoli + brown rice
7:30 - protein shake + peanuts
I try to get around 40grams of protein with each meal with a good carb or fat addition.
Today was day 1 of Anavar and I did my Shoulder routine. Tomorrow will be just cardio and the circuits I do.

I'm in for the ride! I would recommend getting some test with it, everybody is different but Var slightly shut me down on 30mg... I gonna do another cycle but will for sure do test with Var next time.

If you are doing anavar solo, I would recommend 80mg minimum for 8 weeks, I have seen a lot of cycles with disappointing results from low dosed var

I'm 29 years old weigh 160, 5"7'. Currently want to start a cycle (1st ever) and I'm considering Var cause of the light side effects. Any Tips?

Just going by your question about Test Prop - I'm not going to get all high and mighty on you but you should do more reading/learning before you start anything.
02-23-2012, 09:26 AM
Im in the Research Process Right now. Sorry for some of the Dumb Questions... Ive seen Test prop in a lot of forums. My goals are just to lean my stomach area and build some muscle in the process. Im not looking for crazy 30 lbs gains, I would be fine with a good solid, clean, lean 10 lbs.
Are u starting ur PCT on week 6?? Is the Nolva the one u would get at a Nutrition shop or is it a higher quality? like something to get from a source?

I will keep track of some of my weights here to see what strength gains come.

Interested to read some of this. I had to stop after 3 days of var because of some stomach issues. However my buddy using the same gear has been responding so well at 60mg/day. Hoping you keep this log updated because most logs just stop and give no end results

Stress and nerves play more so a role with my stomach. Weekends are fine because of no work (construction engineering job can be stressful at times) and I'm not bothered by much. I think that set me off last time. Anyways not to make this my journal. My buddy is using the same cycle and he's loving every moment of it. Could just be me.Originally Posted by raiderdude

As far as the Anavar goes, only thing I have to report is that I've been feeling lethargic all day. Its not a big deal at all but just reporting something I've noticed.
02-25-2012, 02:09 PM
took a while to get to sleep last night but lethargy pretty much gone today. nothing else to really report. diet has been clean.
02-27-2012, 06:41 PM
Will weigh myself tomorrow. I weigh myself 1x a week on the same scale first thing in the morning.
I feel like my body has adjusted to the Var. First few days there was some lethargy and my stomach was pretty gassy, both of which are gone now.
Overall felt pretty good in the gym today. Lower back felt really pumped by the time the workout was over and I will be putting an emphasis on doing more stretching because my hamstrings felt tight all day and calves felt like rocks doing cardio on Sunday.
Diet has been clean.

weight is 209, strength is up and dosage of 50mg ED is doing the job so far.
Overall, a few days over 2 weeks in, I am happy with the way things are going.

I've been sick or battling some type of sickness for probably 5-6 days since I started my cycle and my workouts have not been impacted at all. Last weekend it was food poisoning from a local restaurant or a stomach bug from my nephew/sister that I caught...It was from 1 of those 2.... Last 2 days its been a cold that has been going around my house. Currently taking a Z-pak to get rid of it.
135x10 (warm up)
I was going for 20reps to close it out and just couldn't dig deep enough today but afterwards felt kind of guilty like I could have gotten it.

I haven't done as much cardio as I would have liked to be doing either.
03-10-2012, 11:08 AM
03-10-2012, 01:29 PM
135x10 (warm up)
Still not over this little bug but workouts have been going very well and diet has been very clean.

weight steady at 209. Will report back later after my session at the gym.
Finally getting over the cold/bug and feeling good.
