VAR @ 50mg e/d or 100mg e/d?

Hi all, it's very unusual for me to ask a question on behalf of a friend, but I've been asked something I can't given a clear-cut answer to so thought I'd get MT input.

A good friend of mine, who has a superb diet and cardio regime (he is a professional Muay Thai fighter), is looking to add an oral to his supplements. He wants something that will provide moderate strength and lean gains, so he's going for Anvar, although I personally think Tbol might be as good, and wanted my view on the stuff. I've used Var only once, several years ago and, I believe, @ 75 mgs ED and had very moderate gains. I had better gains from 60 mgs ED Tbol for 6 wks. Basically the guy in question wants to know if he will benefit, in terms of strength gains and lean muscle gains, from 50 mgs ED. (He has BD gear which, I believe, comes in 50 mg doses). I'm not convinced that 50 mgs ED would be sufficient. I remember when I took it @ 75 mgs ED that my gains were minimal. However, I don't want to advise him to do 100 mgs ED because I tend to err on the side of caution when it comes to high-dosing orals. Basically it's a double question: is 50 mgs ED VAR too little for adequate gains? And is 100 mgs ED VAR too high a dose?

I was thinking one idea might be to taper it, ie 2 wks at 100 mgs ED followed by 4 wks at 50 mgs ED. As alwayas, views and opinions much appreciated.

    I'm on 100mg at the moment gains are lean and going well. No doubt he can afford it so I would go with 100mg. One in the morning and one in the afternoon early evening if they are 50mg.

    I'm doing 8-10 weeks depending on how i feel and the gains i make so I would go for 8 weeks min.

    You'll have to explain PCT to him and maybe offer him some LIV-52 just in case. Make sure he knows about drinking loads of water also.

    Wish him well and good luck.

    i'd say 80mg is the best dose for his purpose but with a good routine he'll see a half decent return on 50g i should imagine.

    I'd tell him to fork out a little more and run 80mg a day tbh, if he can only get 50mg pills then 75mg will do the trick!

    If he's got a few quid to throw at it then 100mg is a good dose for anyone. It's very subtle as you know and the whole lack of sides for the majority is another reason you can go higher without too much concern, If i ran it again i'd stick to 100mg. Not worth going higher imo and itwas the dose i felt the best at.

    Thanks fellas. Useful advice from two respected members.
    The quote above is the advice I've provided, and is based on my own experience of Var (75 mgs e/d for 6 wks).
    So, 100 mgs e/d is OK, guys? No problems passing that info on. I was slightly apprehensive about advising going above 75 mgs/80 mgs e/d because I've never personally gone above 75 mgs.
     
    BD Var, as far as I'm aware, comes in 50 mgs tabs, so it'll have to be dosed at 50mgs, 75mgs, or 100mgs.My advice was to take a full 50mgs tab AM then half a tab (25mgs) early evening. I'll pass on the info that 100 mgs is acceptable.

    Happy to help and let us know how he does. It really isn't that stronger a med.

    Maybe do the 75mg for a cycle and see how he feels, recovers etc

    All The best

    TB

    Info passed on. I think he's going to do run it @ 75mgs and see what gains that dose produces. However, I wouldn't be surprised if he ups the dose to 100mgs e/d now that I've advised him it's a safe dose!

    When I ran 75mgs e/d a few yrs back I had reasonable gains, but I think I had better gains from 60mgs e/d Tbol. I wonder how 60mgs e/d Tbol would rate compared to 100mgs e/d Var. Any experiences, fellas?
