    halovar 6 weeks at this dose.

    50/50/75/75/75/75

    Organ Shield during cycle.

    ReCycle is your PCT for 4 weeks.
    Is this alright?

    First cycle? If so you could probably be 50mg, but 75mg is a really good spot. I really like SERM PCTs but if that isn't an option that looks pretty good.

    How Does Nasty Mass, then Halovar sound as a cycle.

    Is it more effective to do then individually or together, or one then the other?

    Thanks

    I am assuming this is your first cycle. Halovar is the way to go on afirst cycle. Single compounds and then stacks let's you have somewhere to go on future cycles and really get into cycling.

    They are fine but watch out for big spikes in blood pressure. On Hdrol I would get some really bad headaches and stuff if I ingested too many stims

    Just be cautious, may just have to try it and see how you react. If you have a cuff you could take your BP periodically. If not just be aware of the signs for high blood pressure and when it gets to high you will know to back off the stims.

    Periodically thorughout the week. Timing not super important.....if you felt the signs of high BP you could check it then and see how high it is. You'll know when your BP is too high.....its not fun.

    Not fun at all.

    Ideally check it twice a day to get an accurate assessment of where your bp is at.

    Hello all. First post. 2 questions:

    1. I'm almost 2 weeks into my first halovar cycle. First ph cycle. Taking 2 tabs of organ shield and 1 tab of halovar in the morning and the same combo immediately post-workout. For both doses, the bottle recommends taking halovar with a high-glycemic shake or meal. Just wondering how necessary the carbs are. I'm really trying to cut big-time and i've always followed a mostly low-carb diet. Can I safely take the halovar without carbs? is it a safety issue or does it just make the uptake more effective if there is an insulin spike? Basically, is it dangerous to cut carbs or will it just make the product less effective?

    2. Timing the doses. Organ shield recommends 2-4 tabs daily. Should those be spread out throughout the day? Can the OS be taken at the same time as the halovar? Is my formula of 2 tabs OS and one tab Halovar proper? Also, what about other supps? I take glutamine, beta-alanine, creatine, ZMA, and carnitine, along with whey and casein. Anything I should avoid taking at the same time as either OS or Halovar? Currently, first thing in the morning I have been taking the 2 tabs of OS and one tab Halovar, along with a high-glycemic meal and a 40g whey shake. Then i try to stagger my multi vitamin and fish oil. Then pre-workout, i take glutamine, creatine, beta-alanine, carnitine, 20g whey, bcaas. Post-workout i take 2 OS tabs, 1 halovar tab, creatine, glutamine, beta-alanine, carnitine, 40 g whey, bcaas, and about 60g quick carbs/sugar.

    Is this okay? Or does the Halovar need to be taken more or less on its own?


    Thanks in advance for any help/guidance and for bearing with me as I learn more about these supps.

    I can't comment on the Halovar questions, but as far as creatine goes I believe the general consensus is that it is a waste on cycle. Most people recommend to save it for pct.

    I would prefer some of these questions were asked and researched before a person started a cycle, but that's alright Lets see what we can do:

    1. The product doesn't necessary need to be taken with carbs it will just make uptake better. I usually take one after working out so I take in carbs then. I have taken them (Halovars) without any carbs and felt fine however. I would just try it and see how you respond to the insulin potentiators. Cutting on these won't make it less effective though.

    2. The way you have things set up is just fine, 2x a day taking the OS as well. All your normal supps are just fine to continue taking, creatine may provide too much of a pump but other than that there is no problems.

    Thanks for the help! I admit I may have jumped in a little prematurely in the research department. There were some time constraints and it was basically "now or never", or at least now or 3 months from now.

    Also, thanks for the advice on the hal-epol bridge. I originally intended to follow the bottle's instructions but now I think I'll stick to a full hal cycle and save the epol for next year. I appreciate all the help!

    I just received my Halovar bottle in the mail and am debating on when to take it. I want to use something like that to have a low bf% for summer but also am kind of anxious to start it now. Could I run it twice in a year? Would it still be effective? Also, when is that Purus pre workout coming out!?

    I have used it twice this year for 6 weeks a piece at 75-100mg and had no fall off for the gains. So yes you can, may have to up the dose a little second time around, depends on how high you run it this time.

    January 1st is the ETA

    Should try a Halo-Furaz pulse for cutting/recomp! DRY and HARD! Plus strength gains on a 2-3 day per week pulse!

    I'm just sayin'

    After about 2 weeks on the Furaz/ Halo pulse Strength gains have been good. And the feel of my muscles is much more dense/hard. Putting on some weight, but not a ton. Even at 3000-3600 cals a day and 300+ grams protien. So far I'm lovin this mix. No sides other than a little nut pain, which tells me there is some minor shutdown, yet libido is way up!!! My gf is starting to whine and for a 41 yo guy I'm not complaining! LOL

    Would it be safe to run a epol cycle for a second cycle (Halo would be my first). And also since Jan 4th is it ok to stock up and store these in my closet for say a few years. and would this be overkill for halovar pct
    Nolva 40/20/20/10
    Some natty test booster or recycle if i can find it
    and lean xtreme 14 days in
    of course i would be running liv support or OS throughout

    yes, run the halovar first so you get used to the explosive gains while on a PH and then the epol can be run second.

    you're PCT is perfect...

    How much time in between cycles? What if anything did you use on your off cycle to help you maintain your gains? I will be finishing up my Halovar cycle May 8th. Going to do PCT until the first of July.Is that too soon to start another cycle?

    I actually took a big break of 5-6 months. The longer you are on a cycle the longer I personally feel you should take time off. I used staples like creatine, some preworkouts, BCAAs and I did use Recycle.

    How long was your cycle, dose, what PCT? I prefer the old Time ON + PCT = Time off
    Good guideline I think.

    How long was your cycle, dose, what PCT? I prefer the old Time ON + PCT = Time off
    Good guideline I think.
    Always a solid guideline to follow

    May 8th will be the end of my 50/50/50/50 cycle. Running Organ Shield at one serving during the cycle. Strength as gone way up. definition and vascularity has also increased. I have gotten what I expected out of it.

    My thought was to run Recycle with Liver Care as well as utilizing creatine and protein to help keep/maintain my gains and strength.

    btw...i'm 46. In and out of the gym since my mid 20's. Pretty consistent for the last 18 months so I decided to take the plunge. My local 'supp' guy turned me on to Purus Labs products.

    Thanks for your input.

    I'd get some bloodwork done and make sure you are within normal levels first. Then take at least 8 weeks before your next cycle.

    Thanks for your input. I think I'm going to just sit on my supply and go natural for a while.

    Today I go to one of two Supp stores that I frequent. I'm there to pick up some Organ Shield. They also have a few bottles of Halovar. I say to the guy," so is this the last of the Halovar supply since it has been discontinued?" He looks at me funny and says" No, Halovar wasn't included in the ban."

    Thought it was?? Now I'm confused. Can you shed any info on this?
