Anavar 101

In this post I will talk about the hottest steroid on the market right now, and that is ANAVAR.

Anavar never used to be popular due to its availability and high cost, but more recently it's become readily available and has dropped in price a good bit.

Anavar used to sell for $1-$2 a tab for a 5mg tab, but now you can find it for about half that cost, and often times they're available in 10mg, 20mg, and even 50mg tabs.

Anavar is probably more popular now because of fat loss customers and females.

Females love Anavar, I saw a girl transform her body off 10mg/day of Anavar for 6 weeks. This girl lost about 20 lbs, was tight, and just looked amazing from 10mg/day of Anavar. No side effects, no enlarged clit, no voice issues, nothing!! Just a nice look and tight muscles.

Anavar dosage for females

For females 10mg/day is all that is needed.

Women who like Anavar be sure to check out Ostarine which is a lot like Anavar in terms of results. See Ostarine for Women? YES!!

Proven Peptides Ostarine

Anavar dosage for males

For males I'd say 30mg/day is the starting point, but the real results start happening around 60mg/day. It's really no different than any other steroid in terms of mg's to results. Think about it, 60 mg/day x 7 days/wk is 420mg/wk total. It's no different than 200mg/wk of Test vs 600mg/wk, the more total mg's yields more results (to a point).

Anavar cycle and stack

Anavar stacks well with almost anything, but I've found it to be better with dieting. The beauty of it besides giving me a hard and defined look, is it helps me stay stronger on a caloric restriction.

It's also one of the few steroids that I'd say would be OK to run solo. If a guy is looking to cut up a little more, but nothing dramatic, then Anavar is a solid choice!! 6-8 weeks before spring break or a cruise would be a good time to start a low calorie diet along with some Anavar.

What does Anavar do?

With good discipline and legit anavar, one can do an awful lot of changing in a couple short months.

I've always found any oral to work better in smaller dosages throughout the day rather than just 1 large dosage once/day.

Some of the larger mg tabs such as the 50mg tabs are actually a pain in the ass to me, because I need to cut them up. I've tried “pulse cycling” before (only running orals on training days in larger amounts), taking 1 large dose an hour before I train, and I never get as strong doing it that way.

A small and steady dosage throughout the day is what gives me the better results, and that is with any oral compound!!

  1. Great post John

    Would you recommend Anavar for a college soccer player of 20 years old? If yes, what would be a good dosage? For the benefits pf fat loss and all the things that come togheter..

    Reply
    • I’m not encouraging anyone to use steroids, HOWEVER, if I was 20 yrs old and looking for an edge on soccer then anavar would be a good choice. I would start at 30-40mg/day for a male, and keep it at 10mg/day for a female. You can take it out 8-12 weeks if you wanted.

  2. John , a couple questions

    would you suggest Anavar for a newbie to roids?im over 30 n Ripped and strong is my focus I have great muscle shape and size but I think I may be a bit flat plus I’ve never done a stack before.

    Also what are your thought on overhead pressing seated and standing? They seem to get a bad rap and they are not in any power lifting competition .

    If you’ve wrote on these already what are the links?

    Thanks

    Michael

    • Anavar is never a bad choice, but keep in mind it can still suppress your natural testosterone, but not to as much of a degree as other compounds. As for overhead pressing, I do not overhead press heavy any longer. I actually worked my shoulders today and the heaviest I got on dumbbells was 60 lb dumbbells. I used to use 130’s. After two impingements to my a/c joints and looking at an X-ray and seeing how ratty looking my bones looked at the joint, I no longer press heavy over my head. Bodybuilding is supposed to build you up, not tear you down. I primarily use a nautilus machine for my overhead pressing or lighter dummbells, but I still kill lateral raises and occasionally get to 60 lb dumbbells on those. Front raises are kept very light, just to touch on the front delts, maybe 20 lb dumbells?

  3. Hey John,

    Great article. I’ve actually had just been looking up steroids to take when dieting and this article could come at no better time. Just curious, if you wanted to add Clen to the cutting cycle, how would you go about it or do you not even recommend combining both? Would greatly appreciate your input!

    Reply
    • if adding clen then my advice is to keep it at 100mcg/day and nothing more. Clen works great, but its not something you want to use all of the time, it’s just not good for you. I’m going to let you in on a little secret here, if you really want to get shredded, take your clen right before bedtime. Not an hour before, not 20 minutes before, I mean right when your head is about to hit the pillow so you’re asleep before it kicks in. I’d use it 2 weeks on/2 weeks off, and you could switch over to ephdra/caffeine/aspirin stack on your off weeks. You’ll get shredded

      • Hey John,

        Really appreciate the advice. I’lll definitely take heed of it and look forward to applying it come spring break time!

  4. Hi John. I’ve never done anything besides dieting and working out. If I do anavar only, should I be concerned about the effects on my testosterone production? I want to get leaner but not mess up my natural testosterone. Thanks!

    Reply
    • Anavar will probably not FULLY suppress you at a dosage of around 50mg/day for 8 wks. If you go any higher then yes it probably would, but I feel recovery would be much faster than other compounds. I’d hit 50mg/day for 8 wks. Anti estrogens shouldn’t be an issue with anavar only, I’d just get yourself some clomid for post cycle

  5. Hi John nice article, I have ran a solo anavar cycle before that went ok. I am looking to start another cycle if you were 21 weighing about 80kg at 5ft 10 and wanted to put on some size would you recommend test E/ anavar

    Reply
    • If money was no issue then yes, but you need to get that anavar dose up there more, I’d say around 80mg-100mg/day, being that it’s a given most gear is underdosed nowadays. Go with 500mg/wk test e and 80-100mg/day anavar for 10 wks

  7. Hi, I am currently a natty, and wanting to give a 8 week cyle of anavar a go to help get cut up for summer. Will a short cycle of anavar hinder my ability to gain naturally in the future? (My main concern) or will it just give me a boost to help drop the bf% well into single digits while maintaining my mass or growing slightly? Im 175 cm and 70kg at about 12%. And What dose for clomid for pct? Or will natural products (daa ect) get my test back up enough? I am doing ur 5 day 12 week work out in becoming the bull for training, plus some cardio on the body weight day and on weekends.

      • will it hinder my chances of gaining naturally in the future? And would 50mg per day of anavar be a good starting point? And would u work up or leave consistant?

        • I’m going to make this easy for you. I’d either pick natural or steroids. There is no in between, all you can do in between cycles is try and hold as much as you can from the previous cycle. If your idea is to use a few cycles and never touch it again, don’t even do them bro. Yes, they’ll hinder you to SOME degree afterwards. Will you recover? Probably just fine, especially with just anavar. I’d use 50mg/day, stay there, and use it strictly for help with cutting up, and make sure you’re dieting your ass off while on it!!

  9. Hello!
    Need some advice, I had a baby 9 months ago and before i got pregnant and a little bit during my pregnancy I was always at the gym working out decently not hard core tho and I have a great diet! I just bought Anavar havent taken it yet I’ve been looking for some more details on when is the best time to take it? And if there is anything I should do to prepare my body to take it. I want to start a low dose 10mg a day…. Could you shed some light on this and any other good tips, please and thank you!

    Reply
    • Anavar at 10mg’s/day is good, and you probably wouldn’t have any side effects at all. I personally know of NO FEMALE who had any bad sides from 10mg/day for a period of 8 wks. Get off as much of the fat as you can naturally first, hit the cardio hard, then hit the anavar. As for best time to take it, I’d split it into 2 doses a day at 5mg/each, once with breakfast, and again before bedtime

  11. Hii john could you give the exact cycle of clen and anavar.and is it mandatory to take taurine ??and if someone is on clen then will he be taking benedryl in the off weeks for the receptors???and will anavar speedup the hairfall process???if yess then plss suggest something to overcome it. Thanxs in advance and waiting for you advice :-)

    Reply
    • The whole deal of taking Benadryl in the 2 weeks off clen is hogwash, and it’s hardly very effective at all. Ketofin is dangerous to put in your body so I wouldn’t be doing the clen/ketofin combo either to try to stay on clen straight through. It’s far more effective utilizing an OTC fat burner or ECA stack during your off time from clen. As for anavar and hairloss? Nah, not an issue with anavar. And taurine isn’t mandatory on clenbuterol, it only helps if you’re cramping up on it. I never used to cramp on it that bad myself, just drink enough water and don’t go overboard on clen. I see no reason to veer go above 100mcg/day on clen

    • I would use arimadex or aromasyn, but strictly for PCT. It’s just not necessary on 250mg of test and anavar. Begin 2 wks post last shot and use 10mg ed aromasyn for 4 wks, or 1/2mg ed arimadex for 4 wks. I would also use clomid or hcg during his time

  20. Hi, i find your website very very helpful, i appreciate the effort you put thanks!

    I have a questions, i’m 21 years old, i do weight lifting 5 times a week, and muay thai martial art 2 days for the past 5 years. Im very very lean (167 cm, 60 kg), my BF is very low, ABS and definition for al my muscles is very apparent

    However, i would like to go from skinny ripped to ripped as i do look skinny with clothes on, about 10-15 kg increase.

    Im considering anavar, as it seems to be one of the mildest options out there. Would you think 50 mg ED for 4 weeks is enough? or can you suggest other regime? , I want to keep the muscles i build on anavar after the cycle without harm to my natural progress. can you suggest a regimen ?

    im fully aware of PCT, and will use clomid for 20 days after in all cases.

    MANY THANKS !

    • Recovery will be much faster with anavar as it wont suppress you to the same degree as most injectables would. I would go 6 weeks on it though, yes 4 wks will give you some results, but I think 6 weeks is better

  24. Hi John,
    Just started reading your articles and find them very informative. I have a question on Anavar. Have you heard of concentrex labs? and do they makes anavar/ (oxatrex). I just came across some of this stuff and I reserched the lab and found a website on the lab. It appears to be legit at Pharm grade, however, I don’t see the oxatrex as one of their products (they had all the other gear though) on the site. I also can’t find any reviews on it either so I’m guessing that it can be fake? What’s your take on this? Should I chance in a cycle or get it from another lab, I have access to a few?

    Thanks

  25. Hi John,
    I hope you can give me some advice. I’m a 46 y/o woman and take 10mg of Anavar daily. I have gained six pounds of muscle so far but have actually lost no weight. In fact, I look fatter. I crossfit about 3 to 4 days a week. Can you give me advice on a work out routine to lose the weight? I usually lift heavy……and my diet doesn’t suck but it is far from perfect. I am currently working on it and mostly doing paleo.

    Thanks!

    • I highly doubt those 6,lbs u gained were muscle.. anavar is more a recomposition drug than a muscle builder. If u look fatter, that means u probably r fatter ESPECIALLY if ur diet is far from perfect. Sorry to break it to ya.

  26. I’m a 57 y.o. male about to start an HGH regimen. Considering doing a var cycle. Have done dbol in a previous lifetime. Would you recommend delaying the HGH until after the var or think it’s ok to stack concurrently.

    Reply
    • I’d stack them both, and do yourself a favor and stay with 2 iu’s/day of REAL pharm grade HGH. Don’t use too much, it aint worth it. You’ll notice better results after beginning the anavar about 12 wks AFTER the HGH, since HGH takes awhile to see results from and you’d be more anabolic overall once that HGH level was higher in your system I would think

      Reply
      • What I mean by that Rodd, is you’d have more synergy from the 2 of them combines once the GH level was higher AND THEN you added the anavar. But hell yea man, I’d run them both during the same time without any worries. Anavar is great!!!

    • very doubtful man, I cycled a shitload of times before I knocked my wife up. I had to come off everything for about 5-6 months before she got pregnant. I finally thought it wouldn;t happen and took a shot of testosterone and after 1 shot of test she got pregnant. Arnold Schwarzenegger had 4 kids bro, it’s not like you just cycle a few times and you’re infertile. But you’ll need to take some time off. But just being infertile from anavar alone? hahhaa, shit no!!!

  28. Hey John,
    I’m just wrapping up a 500mg/week test cyp and 50mg/day dbol cycle, I’ve also been running 2mg/week adex and 500iu/week hcg during the cycle. I’ve gained a lot of strength, my 515lb deadlift went up to 585lb in 12 weeks, and gained a solid 15lbs of muscle.

    Anyway I’m ready to start cutting now, figured I’d take the test cyp back to 200mg/week, and run some T3 and clen until I get down to single digit bf levels (I’m about 15% now) I also have some anavar, masteron e, and test p on hand for my pre contest cycle.

    So my question is this how long should someone wait after stopping dbol (or other orals) before incorporating anavar? Also how can I best utilize the anavar and masteron, dose and timing wise, in my pre contest cycle? I’m on TRT as well so I never plan on being “off” testosterone completely.
    Thank you.

  29. Hey John, i wish to ask you a little about anavar. Before asking i want to inform you that i have been training for almost 6 years now (the first years were so and so for me due to some mistakes i did) and 3 years powerlifting style in which i saw great gains. I train 3 days a week in the gym,and i do cardio the next 4 (for recovery and general health)

    Now the question about the anavar, besides muscle hardness, does anavar round your muscles (especially the shoulders)? I have always wanted to have this kind of look (hard look but also rounded-full muscles) and was wandering if anavar could help me achieve this kind of look.
    I have succesfully cut 2 times in the past 2 years for summer to about 10% bf (that is where i look the best) and i am hungry for more :)

    Thanks a lot for your great content, it has helped me tremendously in changing my view in lifting,keep up the good work

    • No, no steroid helps round your muscles, not sure where you heard that from. The rounded look comes from development. Just takes a long time and with new development comes rounder and fuller muscles

    • You may pick up a little bit but nothing dramatic. I would do a mini PCT and hit some clomid and an Aromatase inhibitor for 10 days post cycle. You could use 1/2mg ed of arimadex, 12.5mg/day of aromasyn, or 3 caps daily of PCT from Red supps, the arimistane in that will work very good as well.

    Reply
    • nah, go straight to 10mg/day, I’ve seen so many women using 10mg/day with no issues that I think it’s safe to say it’s a good dosage. You can still use your other supplements in conjunction with it as well. I’d keep alcohol intake limited. Although Anavar doesn’t wreak havoc on your liver it can still throw your numbers off some, but recovery is pretty quick. I’d just keep the drinking to a minimum if you can, but not like you cannot have a few once in awhile

Planning on doing Anavar after turning 18 which is in a couple of weeks. I want to get my leg mass up but also wanting to stay aesthetic in a way. Would it mess up my normal test production ?? Any advice for my first cycle like the weeks/ mg per day/liquid Anavar ? any type of advice would be much appreciated.

    Thank you !!!

    Reply
    • Anavar can still knock your natural test down if you use enough of it, but in some cases with moderate dosages it’s partial suppression that you can recover from quickly. You have to understand that you won’t be throwing on slabs of muscle with anavar it just doesn’t work that way and the stuff is mild in comparison to other steroids. I’d advise against it at your age, but if you’re going to do it anyways then stick to 30-50mg/day for 8 weeks.

  34. Hey John I love the site. I’m a 31 year old male, been lifting for 10+ years, and compete in men’s physique division. I’m currently 5’10, 200lbs with approx 12-13% BF. When I compete I’ll get down to about 175-180 with 6% BF. Always been natural and have good genetics and would prefer to avoid test if possible to avoid the sides. I just need 5-10 lbs more of lean muscle and something that would help harden me up come contest time. With this being my first cycle I was thinking of doing 6-8 weeks of 40-60mg per day of Var and then using nolvadex for 3 weeks (30/20/10). Does this sound like a legit plan? Also do you have any recommendation on something I could take to help boost test levels from the suppression of the anavar cycle. If so, please advise on how to take it. Thank you so much!

    • You could use Ostarine to boost test levels while on Anavar, sort of like your base. (that is, if you wanted to avoid test) I think your plan sounds solid

        • You can safely use anavar up to 12 weeks if you are keeping doing 60mg or less. I think 40-60mg a day is good. Ostarine up to 8 wks or so at 20-30mg daily

          • yes, it will. It will elevate your own testosterone while you’re on it, and you’ll most likely have much higher levels of free testosterone (the type that is unbound and readily avail. ) Yes, a 3-4 week PCT is still recommended with that stack -JD

This will be my second cycle as I’ve been training 15 years(first being of dbol only, 10 years ago) I’m 31, height 5”11, weigh 190lbs with around 15-14% body fat. I want to get to single digit bf and more muscular, thinking of using Clomid in pct. Does that sound like a plan ? If yes then what’s the dosage you’d recommend?

            Much appreciate

  35. Hi John,

    Currently on TRT Program

    – 200 mgs Test E (Weekly)
    – Arimedex (1 mg tab 2 x’s a week)
    – HCG (0.5 ml 2 x a week)

    I want to add in some Pharm Grade Anavar (I have 50 mg troche)

    Should I take the 50 mgs daily cut up so i can take it thru out the day, or take a lower dose daily since its pharm grade?

    How long should I take the var?

    My goal is to shed some visceral fat and add a little lean muscle with proper diet!

  36. Hey, I am a 19 Y/O lean 175llb, 6.3″. I have had a few years experience dieting and in the gym despite my age, I am also qualified in nutrition and exercise instructing, I am about to start a mild cleanbulk diet and have got a bottle of 50mg ANAVAR on hand, I feel it could give me that edge when going in to this stict diet and training reshime, many say this drug is for cutting and slight fat burning, but could it come in handy on a bulking diet, not to receive bulk from the var it’s self but to facilitate my progress and strength gains, also give way to lean mass gains ?

    Reply
    • yes, diet it’s going to be the ultimate factor. Anavar helps keep strength during dieting, a more mild addition to building but it will help

    love your site thanks

    • 60 tabs of 10mg oxandrolone is going to do VERY LITTLE if anything, it’s simply not enough to do shit. You would need to take a minimum of 3-5 tabs/day and with 60 tabs you’ll be out of it in 2 wks

  38. Hi there!! I’m a 34 year old female looking to have a tighter look and increase muscle in my GLUTES as well as other parts of the body and yo also decrease BF. I had my son 8 years ago and even when lean I hold fat in inner thigh and lower abs. I’m 5’6 132 lbs. I look fit but feel mushy and soft. Would the anavar or Anvarol which is what I intend to use do the trick?! And if so how much anvarol should I use? And when should I take it?

    Reply
    • yes and no. Not like your typical male PCT, since female estrogen levels fluctuate much more anyways regardless. I’d do more of a mini-PCT and use 1 cap per day of Red-PCT for 30 days

  39. Hey John, I’m 36 5ft 7in 189lbs. Been training 10 years, on TRT almost 3 years. 200mg a week. The most I’ve run is 300mg for 10wks. I’m in the best shape of my life. In the gym 4-5 days a wk. Looking to really get my abs to pop and get hard for summer. Would adding 20mg of var help any if I ran it say 8-12 weeks? I know my var is accurately dosed and legit.

  40. Thank you very much for taking the time to write this post and for answering all these questions. I have learned a lot about anavar/clomid. It’s suits my goals.

    I know you don’t provide resources. I understand. But you are also able to get the legit stuff while those of us that don’t know a thing get screwed by fake sites. Could you at least send me a PM with a lead? At least a review site that can be trusted. The whole thing freaks me out a bit.

    Thanks again.

  41. Hi John,

    I am curently doing TRT at 180 mgs a week (60mgs 3x week) and would like to do a Anavar cycle but I want to avoid taking an AI. I currently have good estradiol levels with no symptoms. Is this likely with a 6 week cycle at 40mgs (cutting) to get away with no AIs?

    Reply
  42. John freaking doe. Thank you for all the clear cut answers. So many forums get convoluted with information.

    General question. For cutting on anavar, what calorie deficiency range do you recommend based on bmr, bee. Whatever your preferred base rate is?

    Reply
    • Ok, here is the thing I want you to understand about cutting and calories below basal metabolic rate. Let’s say you go 500 cals below BMR today, then 500 cals below BMR next week. That 500 cals next week is MORE OF A DEFICIT than thatsame 500 cals below BMR today, because you’re further in. This is why the changes with cutting start becoming more and more noticeable once you get further along. I’d keep it around 500 under until the tail end of your diet. In the case you were trying to compete or something, those last few weeks may be 800-1,000 below, but only for a few weeks. Good luck brotha’!! Oh yea, and anavar is just going to help hold more muscle and strength so the recompositioning effect will be much more dramatic

  43. Hi John,

    Like Sophia asked recently, can you PM me with at least a review site? Those of us that don’t go to hardcore gyms or have any bodybuilder friends are basically kinda stuck with knowledge (thanks to you, and other sites with real answers to real questions) but no way to implement it.

    Another question.. if it were possible to get a script from someone (i do have a close buddy who is a doc, and if it came down to it, and i got over the embarrassment, lol), would you say a legit script taken to a regular pharmacy will always result in a full-dose pharm-grade product? I noticed another poster saying his was from Watson, which i remember from past scripts for random meds is a well-known manufacturer.

    Thanks, and thanks for all the great knowledge!

    • I think getting a script for anavar would be extremely difficult without a muscle wasting condition or something. I wish I could give you a review on a site but that is just one area I do not get into. I just provide information, everything talked about here is hypothetical

      Reply
      • I understand, and I appreciate your honesty.. that’s the great part about your page and what you’re doing here.. you can just tell your anecdotes on var, or anything else are the real deal, no BS, since even when you have to say, “sorry, can’t help you there”, you say just that. :)

        Well I pretty much have my heart set on var, I kind of already did from what I read about it, and your site just seals the deal. I can work on my buddy for the script, no worries, he’s written scripts for strong opiods for friends before, and var is WAY less harmful.

        My last question is this. All the rage in the pharma world, with the commercials and heavy marketing seems to be testosterone. Does that have similar catabolic effects to var? And doctors don’t seem to require any muscle-wasting issues to prescribe that, just age and free test levels falling in the right (or wrong) range, depending how you look at it. I currently have several buddies who have scripts for it already, the topical “rub-on” kind. Is that something totally different from anavar and it’s catabolic effects?

        Can you go a little bit into the difference between the heavily marketed testosterone treatments for aging males and anavar? Long term effects, side effects, etc. It would be much easier to obtain, but I’m guessing it’s not catabolic like the other synthetics, otherwise bodybuilders the world over would be running to get their own hormone replacement therapist :P

        Thanks again

          • I’d go with 20mg/day for 3 weeks, anavar isn’t as supressive as other steroids but partial suppression is usually the case

  44. Everyone here makes it sound so easy to get. Lol, Well I got a friend that’s curious, He feels like it’s kinda hopeless to ever find any. No bodybuilder friends or anything as the guy above said.
    If a friend of mine was hypothetically trying to get some where should he start besides guys in the gym, cuz that’s not happening?
    Heard that you should look online but no idea where to start and will probably end up getting ripped off. Poop..

  45. I have heard mixed comments on pct after anavar only cycles .Since it isn’t testosterone how does it effect your testosterone levels therefore needing to run pct after a cycle?

    Thanks

    • most steroids are derivatives of testosterone but chemically altered at the carbon atom for different effects. With anavar, full suppression usually isn’t the case but it’s dose related. I’d say about 50-60% suppression with most anavar only cycles. Yea, you still want to be proactive and use a PCT, a “mini-PCT” at least.

  46. For any woman regardless of size, are you still recommending 1mg anavar a day? Can it be increased to a higher dosage to lose weight and gain muscle,or would I just be wasting them? Thanks

  47. True story. I have an “old school” friend who agreed to train me for my first show. He is awesome and has done miracles with me over a two year period. I’ve been on nothing but 6 weeks ago he gave me some oxavar and told me it was used for hardening the muscles. Well I’ve been taking 25mg a day and hydroxycut and my stupid self didn’t ask any questions. I’ve been dieting hard and my show is in 5 days. It’s a natural show because I THOUGHT I was all natural. Well after reading through the list of things not allowed for natural shows, I see oxavar on there. I am so pissed right now. This stuff in now way has gotten me where I am today. It’s been my hard ass work and clean eating. I’ve only been on it for 6 weeks. I came off right away but I still want to compete. I’ve worked so damn hard. And I was down to the last 5 days. Needless to say I’m a mental basket case right now. I’ve done some reading since and it seems it would take 3-4 weeks for it to be out of my system. There’s another natural show in 4 weeks. Do you think it would be out of my system by then. I want to be natural. I can’t believe I didn’t ask questions. He claims he didn’t think it would be on there because he thought you could buy it legally. Like I said, he’s old school. The old flip phone no television type. But a damn hard core trainer in the weight room. I’m an emotional wreck right now. Any advice?!?!?

    Heeeelp please

    • I believe detection time is 3 weeks. I’m uncertain as to whether or not you’re polygraphed or piss tested but I think it’s polygraph. If this is the case then it’s a gamble on the other show. If im not mistaken you need to be one year clean for natural shows, but I could be wrong. Id suspect the testing is all over the map and not that consistent. I wish i had a better answer for you

      Reply
      • Yes sir. Everyone gets a polygraph but only pro card winners get urine test. Like you said, it’ll probably just have to be a gamble as to if I think it would be out of my system before the mid July show :/

  48. Hi Joe,
    Wondeeing if you can clear something up for me. I’m running a mild cycle at only 25mg a day. An unfortunate turn of events meant I couldn’t had mine for five days two weeks in. Would I be alright to just pick up where I left off with only a waste of my money getting it back into my system the issue or is there anything else I should worry about with this stop/start problem.
    I appreciate the cycle is mild .
    Any advice is gratefully received.

  49. Hi John Doe,
    Male, 5′ 11” , 18% Bf. I did a lot of research regarding anavar and found a lot of posts saying that anavar shuts you down and would need PCT. Also, 40mg ed would be the minimal dosage for any results. I’m a little concerned about the effects and wouldn’t like to take tests so, thought of taking 25mg ed for 4-5 weeks and I know it’s too weak but I would rather wait for the long term result rather than 40-80mg ed and the need of test. Would a dosage like that yield any result or should I just not do them? Also, would a dosage like that need any kind of PCT or mini-PCT?

    Thank you for your time,

    Reply
    • Anavar in most cases is going to be partially suppressive, however not as bad as other compounds like testosterone, trenbolone, or deca. Yea I’d still recommend a PCT but it doesn’t need to be overkill. Something light for 3 weeks is fine. Also 25mg/day is just too light for a male in my opinion. I wouldn’t even use it unless you’re going 40mg/day if you’re using it on it’s own…waste of $$$

      Reply
  50. Hey John .. Perfect site and post ! Many thanks for your help.

    Could you please advise if the 6 weeks 80mg/day cycle of Anavar should start in ascending way or simply start taking the full 80mg (with splitting the dosage throughout the day) From day 1?

    As for the PCT, how the below sounds to you

    Day1: Clomid 100mg + Nolvadex 40 mg
    Day 2 – Day 12: Clomid 50 mg + Nolvadex 20 mg
    Day 13 – Day 21: Nolvadex 20 mg

    Thanks again

    Reply
    • yes, anavar is pretty mild so you could just start there at that dosage. If you get anything like an upset stomach then back it down to half the dosage for a day or two, then ramp right back up. I do this myself as sometimes 100mg/day can make my stomach ache

  52. I’m 22 years old 5″1 and 145lbs I have A LOT of leg muscle. That’s where I have the most muscle on my body and my body fat is roughly 25-30% I was planing to start my first cycle to lean out and build more muscle but I’m afraid my body fat % is too high. And I was planing to start the cycle with 5mg twice a day the first week and the next 4 weeks I’ll max out at 10 mg a day. Can you tell me what’s right and wrong and if it’s okay for me to start my cycle?

      • With just an anavar cycle you’re best to taper off. Just take an additional week or two to gradually lower dosing to 5mg/day and then to 2.5mg per day.

        Reply
    • As long as your diet is clean then it’s fine, average bf % for a female is about 19-20% so you’re not too much higher. You can use the anavar to maintain muscle and gain strength while dieting. If you don;t diet it’ll do very little in terms of what you’re looking for

I have gained some weight on this too but I’m not seeing it on me at all. Do you know exactly what is happening to me?

    Whats your suggestion about it?
    Will it be beneficial?
    Do i require a pct after it? If yes than, will 1 week of tamoxifen be sufficient ?

    • in my opinion, more effective at cutting when ran at 30/30 respectively with winny each day, but can be ran longer and more mild on the body with just anavar, even if dose twice as high as 30mg a day of winstrol. Winny jacks up cholesterol which is why I wouldn’t suggest running it more than 6-8 weeks. A good cyc le would be 30/30 winny to var for 8 wks…diet your ass off too

  62. Hi,
    I’m 34 and on trt. My test was 149 4 months ago, the doc put me on 200mg of test a week and 250 iu’s of hcg a week orally. I started at 384 lb’s and now I’m down to 336 lb. I used to be very active before and keept my weight abut 240-260 was always bigger but that never affected my life…I gained a lot in the last 3 yrs do to running my own business and sitting all day. I have a great trainer that also gives me advice but I’d like to double check with you before I go any further. I’m planning on going up to 400mg of test c and running 60mg’s of var , he is suggesting 100mg’s but I just don’t know about that since this would be my first real cycle..cant really consider trt as a cycle.
    What would you do if you were me.
    BTW I got my strength back, I can do almost same weight as I did 5-6yrs ago when I was in shape..it’s just that I can’t run yet do to the strain on joints..but everything else is improving dramatically.
    thank you for your advice

    • I’d keep the test where it’s at so you’re not fighting water retention issues as you use more, and doing the anavar at 60mg/day for 8-10 wks is fine. But I [ersonally would not elevate the test until I got more within my weight loss target and leaner

    I have just finished a 10 week course of Anavar. I started off first week taking 50mg per day and from week 2-10 I took 100mg per day. Results have been great. I have had no side effects that I am aware of. I have read a lot about Testosterone. I am considering now taking some Testosterone. Would you recommend this? I am a 40 year old male, 6 ft 2 inches, about 210lbs. I would really appreciate your advice. Also, when would it be ok to go back onto Anavar. I am concerned that I will lose my gains.

    Reply
    • At 40 years of age there is a possibility of low test to begin with. I’d get those levels checked just to see where you’re at first. If test is normal or mid range then I’d stick to 8-10 week cycles and make sure you take at least 3 months off in between, AT LEAST!! It’s harder to recover as you age and you may be looking at TRT much earlier in your cycle experience than someone in his 20’s

      Reply
        • Thanks John. What is the best way to keep the gains I’ ve made in the 12 week off period. I’m concerned that all the gains I’ve made are going to disappear which then makes it difficult to keep off the Anavar, although I will.

          I guess all I can do is eat clean, get my protein in and train hard?

          Also – would it make sense for me to use some testosterone boosters? if so, which ones do you recommend that I would be able to buy in the UK? I don’t really want to inject raw testosterone into my body at the moment.

          Reply
          • you nailed it, most of the muscle gain retention is going to be in diet, training hard and proper rest!! As for any test boosters in the UK, I’m not familiar with what is allowed in the country and what’s not. I myself would stay away from anything that is going to further drive test levels into the ground during recovery. I think a good alternative would be Andarine and Cardarine stack though. Do a search for Andarine (S-4) and Cardarine, it also would only help to use a product like Red-PCT at 1 pill per day to help keep test: estrogen balance in check, even while between cycles (actually more imortant between cycles) My .02

  65. Hi,
    i am currently 125lbs ( 5,3, female ) and I want to gain muscle. I have been workingout for the past 3 years and i lost about 45-50 pounds. I think its time for me to take a little something to help me gain muscle because I feel like Im not gaining muscle anymore. I really enjoy lifting and i would like to go on a var cycle. The only problem is i go to the gym in the morning and crossfit right after i finish my gym session or sometimes in the afternoon. I heard that there could be crazy pumps with the var when doing cardio. Do you think that could be a problem? my gym is preparing for the games so its cardio season in a week and I do not want try var is its not going to help me gain muscle? Do you think i could start with a 10mg cycle ( 5mg in the morning and 5mg in the afternoon) if i have to deal with a 30 mins cardio every day?

    PS: i am intrested in the bronze package, do you work with females too?
    thanks

    • yes, I work with many females. On the anavar, I don’t see 10 mg a day hurting you a bit, it’s definitely not going to hamper cardio. Do u know how many women I know who use anavar,clen primo, and EQ? A ton!!

    • No, I see nothing wrong with that stack and it’d be highly effective , just keep the clen to 50mcg a day if you’re a female, it’s not the best thing for your heart and 50mcg a day is all u need. Run ur clen in. 2wks on/2 wks off pattern

  66. Hi there, I just have a few questions regarding anavar. Am 45years old I used to take steroids (deca,sust,winstrol) 20 years ago for a few years and then I stopped. Now am 45 and my body is like sh**. I feel like doing something again and a friend of mine got me anavar tablets (10mg/100tablets) I’ve done a lot of research and there s a lot of mixed reviews about it. I’ve decided to give it a try as an only cycle. Was thinking of taking 3x10mg/day for 5weeks as got only 100tablets. Supplements wise will get some omega 3, circumin, multi vitamin, vitamin c, humanofort, digestive enzymes and liv52 running with it during my cycle. And once finished after a weeks rest post cycle 3x (maybe for a months). Does that sound like a good plan? Anything I should else be considering. Thank u very much for any info. Very much appreciated. All the best ….

    • on 30mg/day of Anavar you better be dieting your ass off. I’ve seen some people make great changes on 30mg/day but it’s a very mild dosage, the ones I’ve seen noticeably look different were dieting hard. All your supplements sound good, and getting that bodyfat down should help with estrogen levels if they are in fact elevated which chances are they may be since estrogen is most commonly stored in abdominal fat in men

    What do you think about this and can I also take Post Cycle3X during my PCT or substitute it for the Clomid? I am taking Ostarine instead of Test because I do not want to take Test nor do I want to take Anavar by itself.

  68. Hi John.. great read!! I’m a 41 year old male in pretty good shape. I work out almost dayly and I was recently gifted a pack of Anavar 10mg ×100 by a buddy who is a trusted source. My question is if I was to take 30mg per day for 4 weeks would I need a PCT ie clomid? If soo how much and for how long? I realize it’s a low dose but it’s what I have on hand. . Thanks in advance! Your experience is much appreciated!
    Cheers

  69. Hi I’m a 45 year old women always in pretty good shape…. I have just started taking Anavar and have started with a 10mg start. I only weight 130 pond but am looking to getting just rid of little fat in hard to lose places and show little muscle tone. What should be your recommended dosage and should I increase. Iam hearing conflicting stories. I do eat well amd work out 5 days a week. Thank you

  70. Hey John, so I actually read thru the questions and replays, but didn’t see one question about a “cycle support” like n2guard or something along those line. Maybe I missed it, but I read thru most of the questions/replys. So. If I were doing 20/40/40/40/40/40, should I be taking some sort of liver/cycle support or would I be ok with proper diet, plenty of water. Right now, I’m 46, 5’10, 195, 11-12%bf. Also doing trt @ 80 per week, levels are around 1000-1100. Thanks!!

    • You’re always better with some sort of cycle support but do I think it’s necessary on anavar? Nope! Anavar is extremely mild and if it’s the only compound you’re using outside of TRT then I see no reason for it myself. Are you better with it? Sure, is it going to be detrimental not to have it on just some anavar? Nope

      • Thanks, that’s kinda what I’ve gathered doing research. It seems like in real life “actually talking to people” u get the you’ll be fine with out anything. And these are people that are experienced. Then you go to the good ol internet forums and get “oh man, gotta take xxx, xxx, xxx, xxx and some xxx” I wonder if half these guys on the internet #1 have ever had real anavar, and #2 are not some 18yr olds responding with their what they read on another forum answers. So thank you very much!!

          • Agreed…lol. everyone’s an expert in forum land. Whether its diet advice or cars, yep, they know it all. And your right, let’s see some un-photoshopped or snapchatted pics…. ummmmm, yeah…… I appreciate the straight forward answers. It wasn’t a hard question, just wanna hear from someone who’s been there and not in virtual land. And yes, your answer was rhe same I got from someone who’s competed in the past so I know its legit advice from u.

  71. What about 30mg/day for 8-12 weeks. Would it help keep suppression at a minimum and gradually gain muscle (also how much do you gain even though it cuts your fat)? I’ve also heard anadrol is less harsh on side effects… Any opinions?
    Last question- how androgenic are Anavar/anadrol regarding acne/oily etc as I’m 18.
    Thanks John

    Reply
    • I wouldn’t use anything at 18 years old, but you’re going to do what you’re going to do so with that being said; Anadrol is MUCH MUCH HARSHER, highly anabolic not as much androgenic, anavar less androgenic and much safer than anadrol. 30mg a day for 8-12 weeks would help hold a little muscle during dieting but otherwise I wouldn’t waste a shutdown with it. It’s not enough especially ran solo

  72. Hey John.

    First, I like your website. it’s difficult to find out real reviews and honesty on internet nowadays.

    I plan to do 12 weeks cycle 200mg/w test E primobolan 300mg/w (2 shots of 100mg test E 150mg primobolan) . I have clomid and nolva for pct and arimidex on cycle if I need.

    My first cycle was test E 10 weeks (5 weeks 250mg per week then 5 weeks 125mg per week) and I had great results for a first one.

    What do you think about adding anavar 30mg a day for 6 weeks? If yes, more week 1 to 6 or week 7 to 12? 30mg or 40mg mb?

    Thanks man

  73. Hey John,
    I am currently 22 years old and going on spring break in 10 weeks. I was planning on starting a cycle of var when I am 6 or 7 weeks away. My question is when should I stop taking it in regards to my trip (the day before? a week before?) Also should I do pct and if so should I start it right when I get back. Last question is will it be ok to drink a lot as it is a college spring break trip. I do not plan on drinking while I am on anavar but I know we will be drinking heavy while we are there.
    Thanks for the help!

    • Yes, stop the day out. Yes, PCT is needed, begin when you return, yes drink your ass off and fuck as many hot bitches as possible!! Don’t come home with the clap -JD

      Reply
      • Clap is an easy fix. One more question I wanted to ask is if I should take anything else with it. I have been dieting for awhile now but I want to get as cut as possible while I am on it so I am not sure if I should take anything else with it. Also I am taking creatine right now. Is that ok to continue. Thanks for the response. You’re the man!

        • Most would recommend some sort of testosterone with it, I’m going to go against the grain and say no, use 1,000mcg per week of HCG instead to help raise testosterone levels and make the come-off cycle easier. It’ll also keep you lean and avoid test bloating. HCG with the gear is pretty old school, lots of guys did this while running up to 1,000mg per week of primobolan. HCG is good for 30 days once reconstituted in bacteriostatic water (if you need more knowledge then get my ebook Straight from the Underground) and since most vials are 5,000 iu then you’ll need 2 vials of HCG

          Reply
          • Creatine HCL never cause water retention with me, the other creatine did make me hold a little bit. Up to u, if myself I’d either user the HCL or drop while cutting up

  74. Hey john,
    I am currently doing a 6 week cycle of anavar. My friend told me to not take it on the weekends. Shouldn’t I be taking it everyday? Also, what do you recommend for pct after a 6 week cycle.
    Thanks

    Reply
    • What??? Never heard of skipping weekends on it, I myself would use it daily. If you’re juat using anavar solo the PCT doesn’t need to be an aggressive one. Go with Red PCT 2.0 man, it’ll restore t levels and bring natural test back. It works well

      Reply
      • Yea that’s what I thought. Also I have 50 mg tablets. Should I split this into two doses of 25 mg a day or just one dose of 50mg before workout?

        Reply
        • Sorry to keep bothering you but I have access to clomid and nolva. Do you think I should take the red pct over one or both of those?

          Reply
  75. Hey John,

    I am around 13 percent body fat and I was considering using anavar while in a calorie surplus.

    I know from research it’s best while cutting, what’s your opinion on using anavar only while in a calorie surplus to aid lean muscle mass ?

    Reply
    • I have never used it to try to grow from, it’s always been while preserving size during a diet. I cannot comment on using it while in caloric surplus but I would think you’d benefit from higher dosing of 60-100mg/day while doing so

      Reply
      • Hey,

        Thanks for the advise, that’s what I was able to find by doing some research. I know its not used often for gaining size as other substances can do the same for less cost. People are often put off by the cost as far as I can see.

        It kinda has me intrigued, I will try it out and let you know how I go.

        Thanks for the advise and website, look forward to your next podcast!

  76. Hi John, I am currently running Var at 60mg for 6-8 weeks. Would you recommend adding Winny towards the end? I have a friend running Var currently at 50mg for 6 weeks and then adding Winstrol for the last 2 weeks, apparently at 50mg too. Would you recommend something similar or is that too much, and should just do 30/30 or just stay on the Var alone at 60mg? Also, what’s your PCT protocol after a cycle like this?

    Reply
    • You could add it in, but I would use it for 4 weeks of cycle. You should already know abt PCT before beginning any cycle, but I would use the traditional adex and HCG route. All in Straight from the Underground, explained in detail. Best of luck man -JD

      Reply
      • Without the Winstrol what PCT would you recommend for the 60mg of Var? Some OTC stuff or nolva/clomid? Thanks man!

        Reply
        • You don’t really need an aggressive PCT for that, either nolvadex or adex solo for 3 weeks. 10mg day nova or 1/2mg daily of adex. PCT drugs can become the root of an issue and not always the solution. Time off is stronger than PCT drugs themselves

  78. Hello John

    one question, i never use steroids, but im trying to do an anavar only cyle
    my friend give me an 10mg x 100 tablet, an im thinking of doing a 30mg a day for 4-5 weeks
    my friends have done this very times and say that pct is not neccesary because of the low dosage (they didn’t do one, a say it was fine0
    but my question is, in this case that 30mg a day for 4 weeks, pct is not neccesary or yes?. because is a low dosage and in this moment i only have the anavar

    Reply
    • Your friend is right, you don’t need one IMO either. You aren’t going to see much from 30mg a day of anavar for only 4 weeks. I would be eating really clean and trying to diet, otherwise you seriously will not see anything

  79. I stumbled across your podcasts a few days ago and have been binging them ever since. Love them! Question….. I’m in contest prep mode for a men’s physique show. I’m 13 weeks out and started on a test E cycle 2 weeks ago. I have 6 weeks worth of anavar and 6 weeks worth of mast prop. I’m going to run test straight through and switch to test prop and taper down the last 4 weeks. My original plan was to run the var for 6 weeks and then run the mast prop for the last 6 weeks right up to the show. (so var weeks 12-6 and mast weeks 6-1) Is that how you would do it or would you run them together for the last 6 weeks?

    Reply
    • Bro, diet your ass off and do everything possible with just test until you are 6 weeks away, then run the masteron and anavar together those final 6 weeks. Once you’re already very lean from dieting hard THEN you’ll really see the difference those final 6 wks will bring when u stack masteron and anavar together. That is what I would do anyways. And thanks for listening!

  80. Hi there, great content
    I’m thinking of running Test E along with Anavar for 10/12 weeks. This will be my second cycle as I’ve been training 15 years(first being of dbol only, 10 years ago) I’m 31, height 5”11, weigh 190lbs with around 15-14% body fat. I want to get to single digit bf and more muscular, thinking of using Clomid in pct. Does that sound like a plan ? If yes then what’s the dosage you’d recommend?

    Much appreciate

    Reply
    • 200/wk test, 40-60mg/day var, 100mg/day clomid beginning 14 days post cycle, use 100mg/day x 10 days, drop to 50mg/day x next 10 days after (20 days total on clomid)

      • Thanks man. Just bought your book, amazing read must say.
        I also have some Ostarine and Armistane on the side. Do I or should I use any of them on cycle or post the cycle that you mentioned?

        Much thanks 🙏🏻

      • Just an update.
        Upon my first test shot, everything is fine but on the 4th day after taking my first Test E shot, I am experiencing VERY mild chest discomfort/pain throughout day. Is it common for a body to react or getting adjusted? Should I carry on with another 250mg shot next week?

        Thanks

        • This isn’t a common thing, be sure to check your blood pressure and cholesterol. Also, make sure there is no history of anxiety or underlying issue

          • Thanks John, I did go to the doc and had my blood work done, cholesterol & blood pressure turned out to be normal. So must have been a muscular pain.
            However my Liver’s ATS turns out to be Above high reference limit (90 u/L). Is it expected?
            I’m on my 4th week of Anavar(40mg) and 2nd week of Test E (250mg).

          • yea, thats expected. Unless those values get REALLY HIGH, say like 100+ then there is no reason to be concerned. I walked around with AST and ALT elevated for 10+ yrs and they’re consistently 40 points high and I’ve had no issues. One thing I’ll say though, is that I was bad abt not using a liver protectant on cycle in the past. I used one last time and my values and kidney markers, as well as cholesterol, all came back the best my labs ever looked in 10 yrs

  81. Dear JD,
    I’m 46 male
    I’m just run out of stock when run Anavar only for 5 weeks. I cannot get local seller in my country due to covid19.
    I’m Currently have in-hand RAD-140 (enough to run 8 weeks).
    Do I need PCT before start RAD-140? because I felt slight low libido after 5 weeks run solo Anavar.
    Really need your advice

    Reply
    • You could do either way, but know that going straight to RAD will require a longer recovery afterwards. If it were myself I would just switch to RAD and keep going

  82. Hi John,

    28yr old natty, 5ft 7in at 72kg decided to dip toe in and do a var cycle. I have 100 10mg Anavar taps and tamoxifen for pct.
    What is optimum cycle length and dosage for lean gains and fat loss?
    Should I taper dose up and down at beginning and end of cycle?
    How many times should I be lifting a week?
    Split or full body workouts better suited when in cycle?
    Length and does of pct for this cycle?

  83. Hi JD! Just have a quick question for you –

    I have an event to attend in just under 8 and a half weeks. Looking to lose as much fat as possible with keeping as much lean mass as possible too. I’ve ran multiple cycles over the years. Out of the two below, which one do you think may give the best results? This would be an 8 week cycle for both.

    Test E – 250mg per week
    Tren A – 375mg per week, or possible 300mg
    T3 – 50mcg a day
    Anavar 100mg per week

    Or

    Test E – 250mg per week
    Tren A – 375mg per week, or possible 300mg
    T3 – 50mcg a day
    Anavar 50mg per week
    Winny tabs 50mg per week

    Not sure whether just a higher amount of Anavar is the way to go, or have a Winny/Anavar mix to the same 100mg amount.

    Thanks so much for your help!
