Okay guys, today is the day I might or might not join the dark side and here is the lowdown:
-I JUST want to reach 5-8% BF after doing a var only cycle. I don't care about LBM gains, I'm already loaded with muscles all natty.
-I'm gona start at 20mg/day and bump that to 30mg/day for 6 weeks.
-For PCT, I'm following mrjuice's 40/20/20 on nolvadex.
My questions are:
-Will I hit my target bodyfat% (5-8%) on this ?
-Will I get that vascularity and muscle hardness people claim they've gotten ?

Personally I'd do 60mg. I'm only doing 50mg because I have 50mg caps. From 30mg, I wouldn't know what you'd get. Maybe vascularity but I don't know about hardness or getting to your bf goal.Originally Posted by BTBBC

Okay guys week one is complete! Typo the other day when I said day 6....
Today's weight: 192.7
Workout went great! I'm continuing to see strength gains. But I'm questioning if my var is really var because strength gains usually come around week 2? I don't know. Machines were all backed up so I stuck with free weights today.

Not much of a workout because my partner rushed me -_-
Vascularity is pretty good! Bicep veins were bigger and bulging more than usual. Some new forearm veins bulged during the workout. Not tired after dosage. I'm starting to like this cycle. Hope to see even more in the next 7 weeks. Try and update tomorrows workout

Anavar from my understanding is a straight cutter. Not meant for high strength gain or muscle mass. Maybe a few lbs but nothing drastic.

It is a cutter but you still get good strength gains. People can add 40-60lbs to their bench press which is pretty good. Anything you gain is solid lean mass but yeah, only a few pounds. If you would've read my previous posts, my goals are to tone up and add some extra strength.Originally Posted by halfhuman

MrJuice bro, can you explain to me what exactly nolvadex is used for ?
I mean, how does take away the "shutdown" caused by var ?

Chemical athletes use SERMs because they raise the testosterone level. One of the ways that the body monitors its own production of sex hormones is by keeping an eye on the concentration of estradiol in the blood. If it gets too high then sex hormone production is reduced - including the production of testosterone. Because the control mechanisms make use of estradiol receptors, SERMs crank up testosterone production. That's why chemical athletes use substances like tamoxifen after taking a course of steroids.Originally Posted by BTBBC

sorry for me keeping on posting here but you seem to be the only one on the internet replying back to my questions lol (thanks bro).
So I'm starting a 6-week var only cycle tomorrow and this is what I'll be doing:
-Milk thistle for liver support (Don't know the dosage though, maybe you can help with that?)
-Nolvadex for three weeks at 40/20/20 pct.
Am I good to go ?
07-29-2012, 02:19 AM
I'm glad to help bro. Sounds good but I'd us Liv 52. Milk thistle actually isnt good for you. It does guard your liver but your liver can repair 25% of itself. That's like us losing a leg and growing another one. So by blocking your liver, it's not doing its job so the milk thistle is actually bad. That's what I've read on another forum. Glad you bumped up the dose to 50mg. Good luck bro!Originally Posted by BTBBC

Hey, I'm 20 year old and have been looking into Anavar for a while now and am finally making the purchase. I lost a lot of weight/strength over the summer due to my job, so I want to do an 8 week cycle of 50mg ED. Just to bounce back a little quicker. My only question is when to stay the PCT. right after my last day or starting the last week of the anavar cycle? And can I buy Nolvadex at a store? Also is a liver support necessary for anavar? I've heard it's pretty mild.

Sorry, from what I've seen at local vitamin stores they all carry PCTs and everyone has said Nolvadex is a PCT. Didn't realize it was bad to be inexperienced with steroids.
