Anavar only cycle self. What are your guys' thoughts on an Anavar only cycle? My source is running it for a decent price and I was thinking about giving it a go for my cut phase. I know orals are looked down upon and Var is pretty expensive, but I think I'm getting a pretty good deal on it. What would you guys think of a 6 week cycle of only Var? Anavar is a steroid for people who are too scared to do the right thing and run a real cycle.
It is alluring because it seems low risk, is commonly toted as being great for cutting low water retention , and, best of all, no needles. But taking enough to gain any kind of anabolic benefit will very likely suppress your natural test production. And despite being touted as safe, it is still an oral, and therefore it will always be rougher on your liver than nearly all injectable steroids. It's expensive, and kind of weak, and there is considerable incentive amongst black market producers to cut, tamper, or even outright swap it with something else.
I've heard of people getting swapped anadrol, but because they have never done a cycle they don't realize it, are so thrilled with their mass explosion that they don't notice the gyno and quiet hepatic damage until it gets pretty bad.
Furthermore, I don't really agree with the idea of specifically choosing steroids with low water retention for the purpose of cutting unless you are planning on competing while still on-cycle or something. While more common steroids like test and deca will give you some water bloat, that doesn't change the fact they still work fine for cutting. You may be retaining water, but beneath that water you are still cutting fat, still retaining muscle, and still getting lean.
Once the cycle ends you lose the water weight and you are just as shredded as if you had done something with no water retention. So unless there is some reason you need to be turbo-shredded on the 6th week of your cycle I don't see why you wouldn't just do something cheaper and more effective. Needles equal drugs in a lot of peoples minds. If you are taking a pill then everything seems legit. You keep it with your multivitamins, nobody is gonna find your used pins, your mom ain't gonna wonder why you need all those alcohol pads, and nobody is gonna think you're a junky.
But the reality is that those of us who use needles are not doing so because we are more hardcore. Steroids that require needles are generally safer than those that do not.
It is the easy stuff that is hardcore. Orals like dbol, or androl, are quick and simple. Swallow a pill and watch yourself pack on muscle. Using pins is a hassle. You have to buy syringes, have glass vials lying around, need to wipe everything with alcohol pads, and actually jam needles into your body and inject yourself with drugs. If we were hardcore we would just go the easy route to get the best benefits. Swallow a handful of anadrol every day and explode like the hulk. We choose pins and run test and avoid orals and use proper PCT because we don't want liver damage, or gyno, or suppressed natural production.
We want to do it as safely, and effectively, as possible. Many of us believe that this is the right way to do it. Going with orals may be quick and easy and seem like it avoids all the big, scary things people associate with steroids, but it is actually a riskier cycle with a crappier payoff.
It is my personal opinion that if you want to try this road then you should face up to the realities of steroid use, from alcohol pads to pins, from liver damage to gyno, and become as informed as possible so that you can do it as safely as possible. In my opinion it is worth it to do it the right way so you can minimize, and mitigate, any risks to your long term health to every extent that it is possible.
You asked everyones opinion on PCT several times, hoping someone will give you the answer you want to hear. Var is not as supressive as most other compounds, but will still supress your natty test levels. Why wouldnt you pct just to be safe?
I never understand people that half ass things. Then you'll be the one bitching that you feel like shit since you came off cycle because your test levels are shit. You are asking a question looking for a specific question. As you already know because you did the research, steroids affect everyone differently, we can only guess.
We don't have the blood work, don't know your genetics, etc. We can make an educated guess because of how the steroid interacts with the bodies.
That being reiterated, oral cycles are "fine. They are not optimal, and that's what a lot of users look for. You will not lose all your gains, but you won't keep them all even with correct PCT you will keep more and recover a lot better though, get your boys back to normal. Also, your body is more receptive on your first cycle I've read, but no source right now so it would be best to do something more effective if it matches your goals.
I personally recommend a PCT. Nolvadex is cheap, even if it wasn't, think about it: Don't put regular in a Ferrari. Try the cycle, but use PCT. I never did this but a few friends have done it now. They were all pleased with their results. Nobody used PCT and they did low doses, basically 40mg a day. Don't expect huge muscle gains or anything, though. You're going to lose a bit of extra fat, your lifts will go up a considerable amount and you will gain a tiny bit of extra muscle mass.
The one guy that was especially pleased with the result was a soccer player that did it for athletic performance as opposed to body building reasons. Part of the reason for this is that use of a Class I steroid alone never is maximally effective. The other cause is that bodybuilders and authors in the field sometimes make unfortunate and unreasonable comparisons when judging anabolic steroids. If say 8 tablets per day does little, then a drug is pronounced useless or weak.
And traditionally, oxandrolone was available in 2. For comparison, testosterone at that dose also gives little results. Indeed, few anabolic steroids give dramatic results at that dose, but they are not called weak on that account. The proper conclusion is that such Anavar tablets were individually weak, but not that the drug lacks potency. I would think its crap if you're are guy. It will shut your natural test production , always take test on a cycle. Around week 3 you'll start feeling like shit from the lack of testosterone.
I'd run it with a test base, have a proper PCT in order, as has already been mentioned. I always understood Var to be one of the safest AAS, with little to no side effects. Is a PCT really necessary? Also, I've read a lot of differing opinions on Var shutting down natural test production. Is there a general consensus? Var will have minimal sides. It is still moderately liver toxic which is definitely overhyped on the internet - just don't drink when you are on orals.
Low doses used just to preserve mass may not completely suppress you, but I feel like the loss of some of your natural test wouldn't be worth it. I'm not gonna tell you to use anything, but I'd run test and primo if you want a low side cutter, but primo is pricey as fuck. Test and masteron is supposed to be pretty good for cutting as long as diet is good.. The one semi decent response gets downvoted and the two terrible ones get upvotes.
Got to love this sub. If you don't know then don't spread misinformation. Don't know how it will effect your body? Oh just take it anyways and see what happens. Famous last words right there. How was your experience on an anavar only cycle? I don't necessarily disagree with you. I was just thinking the logic applied to different situations is hilarious. I haven't done one. I felt good, but I don't think I made any real gains on it.
Everyone told me that I wasn't eating enough, and - by god - they were right. I would highly recommend someone analyze their calories before taking something - especially if you're not close to your genetic limitations.
