The drugs I am considering are a mild oral anabolic (Var) and testosterone (prop of eth) The problem with eth is that I donï¿½??t see the time in my scheule where I can make a full cycle of it.
The questions I have are:
Will the strength gains from Var only be very noticeable?
Will strength gains I get from Var (lets says 4 weeks) stay with me after the cycle? How about from test?
Do you guys think a short (2-6 weeks) prop cycle will be helpful for my performance? Also is PCT needed at all for low dose test cycles? (obviously I will have an AI close, but will I need something to help start back up my natural test?)
Is it possible to do a 7 week Eth cycle? It seems to short to me, seeing that the esters wont be taken off for the majority of that time.
I have used var before… to be honest, I wasn’t very impressed from what I did gain, even strength wise. I view anavar as one of those things you just throw into a cycle because you can. Just my opinion, but different people have different reactions to different compounds.
However, I actually have logged and watched the progress made by baseball pitchers using anavar. Interestingly enough, their game substantially improved. Not entirely sure why or how, but it certainly did. One individual gained 4-6.5mph on his fastball in one month and was capable of throwing 20-30 more pitches per game. In case you don’t know anything about baseball, that is some impressive improvement.
A short prop cycle would probably be your best bet as Bushy outlined.
Regarding your question about test enanthate being used for 7 weeks, yes it’s possible, but you’d have to add in other compounds. I personally am running an 8 week cycle of test at 800mg/wk with anadrol(100mg ED), winstrol(50mg ED), and tren ace (75mg ED) during weeks 1,3, and 4, and then adding 75mg tren ace during weeks 7 and 8. That’s a damn lot of gear, but I am a firm believer in the principles behind short schedule, high dose cycles. This idea will work a lot better than 2 weeks of prop, there is no doubt of that. A problem you might run into is the fact it requires PCT because of period of time you run high test and the fact tren is involved for 4 weeks altogether. And for this type of cycle, a test taper would be the best option concerning PCT.
What I’m getting at is the idea if you don’t like the idea of using near a gram a week of prop, you have other options that will serve you just as well. The downside to that is it will be more expensive and you’ll be using well over a gram a week…
There’s pros and cons to both ideas… I’d say at this point it’s a matter of preference.
Remember one thing-- your muscle gain will be determined by your diet, not what drugs you take or how you train. It will be your diet, period. At the same time however, you might eat so that you don’t put on a lot of weight, but if going the 7-8 week route, you’ll have to use other drugs that will make you retain water, like the anadrol.
