anavar on bulk

Hi Guys,
 
Just a quick question really in regards to Anavar as although i've done a lot of reading about it, you can't beat personal experience sometimes.
 
Basically i'm bulking towards the summer now and in about 6-8 weeks time will probably run a course. I've done a course of dbol in the past although i found it raised my anxiety levels a little, and a course of hdrol which the only complaint i had was the fact my blood pressure shot up.
 
I know anavar isn't a bulking steriod, but i've read thats only in the respect that gains are lean and much more solid (easy to keep) - to me this isn't a bad thing as anyone can go on a course of oxy's and whack on a stone, only to lose half of it later... i've no problem in gaining half as much as long as its going to be solid.
 
The reason i'm considering var btw is purely because i've recently been able to get what seems to be a decent source and i'm ok for money at the moment so thought it might be worth a bash. The second thing is because i've heard its quite mild - i know they all have their risks but for me it is all about minimising these - i work 6 days/60 hours a week so i can't afford to have something which has the potential to give me too much in the way of sides.
 
My only other option was going to be a 4 weeker on P-Mag which is a DS but apparently a decent compound. This is obviously the much cheaper option - but as i mentioned money isn't the issue at the moment.... If the P-Mag is the better option i'll roll with it and spend the saved money on food no doubt but i thought it was worth asking first,
 
Thanks for your help...

    To be honest mate, there isn't actually a question, or atleast one i can see.
     
    You have justified your reasons for using Var, can afford to run it at a decent dose (100mg a day), have cited the fact it is low on sides so fits in with your lifestyle and you have also said you are happy to trade off some side effects for lesser gains. If its legit, I would say get everything covered on the routine/diet front and crack on!

    From personal experience Var would be pure sh1te on a bulk... great for cutting but for bulking... nope.

    500mg of test a week and go from there.

    Var + Bulk = Dissapointment and money down the drain imo

    I'm in my 5th week of anavar at 80mg a day, its my first cycle of anything.. and I'm a perma-bulker.
     Iv not put on much mass so far, no more than I would normally add natty really, but my strength has increased dramatically.
    So deffinatly agree, if you want mass you will be left disapointed, but on the flip side the extra strength does alot for the ego, so I don't regret it atall.
    Sides were none existant for first 4 weeks, but now they are starting to come through...libido is suffering, I feel lethargic/tired all the time and my appetite is so poor I'm having to force feed myself (although this would be a positive thing on a cut I guess)
    All in all...if all you want is to get bigger try something else

    yeah that's why i like it for cutting, strength stays high on low cals and if you get the diet nailed you gain muscle and cut fat by combing high rep with low carb periods and heavy lifting pre and post carb load. Also keeps you looking pumped on low carb days so you look a bit better when you should really be flat and depleted.

    For bulking though i'd go with dbol or test over anavar any day of the week... Not that i'd personally run dbol again as it bloats me in ways i never thought possible.

    i'll wait for some more input on this, although i don't mind doing the var course i am aware there are much cheaper alternatives and the last thing i want to feel is like i've wasted my money.
     
    I've read the "myths" of anavar piece thats been posted around these forums a few times and one of the things it says is that with the correct regime gains of 10lbs+ are not impossible. I'm not saying thats what i'm after, but the basic jist of it is anavar can be a very useful lean gaining compound if your diet and training are on the money.
     
    I was also thinking of somewhere between 50-75mgs a day for 6-8wks, apparently the tabs i can get are 50mg's, don't know if anybodys heard of these? I can check that though - may be wrong there.
     
    Cheers for the replies

    I'm only telling you this because you're a united fan and that means you're cool as fvck.... Anyone who has gained 10lbs on anavar has done it on a see food diet and most of it was fat.

    Or they've ran var on a clean diet for several years.

    Fact... if anyone can ever show me somebody who has gained 10lbs on var alone in anything less than 12-15 weeks, i will sh1t in my own hand and facepalm repeatedly for 45 whole seconds. I just don't believe its possible.


    I cannot see that being likely at all from what i've seen and experienced of Var.

    If you ran 75mg of var for 6-8 weeks..... if you gained anymore than 3/4lbs of lean muscle i'd be amazed and astounded and that's an optimistic figure.

    Honestly mate, it's not a bulking med no matter what you've read... the majority of stuff you read about var is spouted off by people who have never ran it, i've ran it between 80 and 150mg a day and i wasn't all that impressed outside of a few little cutting benefits as mentioned earlier. Brilliant on a cut.... but I'd never ever, ever consider using it for bulking, lets put it that way.

    Save your money and run d-bol... then you can have a few extra pints when we dick west ham (fishing for danny here!)

    Don't run Var on a bulk mate, it would be a waste of a real quality lean muscle building steroid which would be better kept for times when leaner gains are your goal.

    As everyone else here has said, don't bother. Too costly and will not do much on a bulk. 
    How's about some tbol at 60-80mg for 6wks?

    Interesting suggestion re the turinabol, this is like a milder dbol no? Only problem i think with that one is sourcing it...

    I can always run the p-mag - feedback ive seen so far is promising.

    How long can you safe/sensibly run anavar for at higher doses?
    If strength gains keep coming session after session as they have been Id be happy to stay on it long term, although I imagine the gains must start to taper off at some point

    ive ran it for 15 weeks at pretty high doses 80-150mg and i was alright

    I only rate it while cutting personally, wouldn't bother with it for anything else.

    Depends on your goals and if you come off gear all together, if not the oral of choice for long term use regardless is var, whatever you gain is lean and its good for condition and strength. Obviously this is assuming that you are running multiple other compounds aswell.

    if your goals are lean gains then why run var?

    low test and diet will produce far more results wise.

    Bulking... var offers nothing.

    Training for strength.... plenty of better options that var, cheaper options as well.

    Outside of a cut i honestly can't think of anywhere else i'd shell out for it.

    Can't imagine Id get such impressive stength gains from it on a cut though, so for that reason alone its worth doing for me TBH
    Ofcourse, Id probably get equal or better strength gains from something like Dbol, plus a load of mass at a fraction of the cost, so I can see what you mean, but still..Iv had very few sides.
    personally, I'm very acne prone so if I used Dbol Id probably be spending alot of roaccutane afterwards, so it would cost just as much if not more than var has.
    Although, the time will come and I'll just have to bite the bullet, but Id rather have an acne free summer first

    Tbol is similar to dbol alright but with a lot less bloat.
    I like to think dbol as being cheap as chips, and good for mass but way to much bloat.
    Var, expensive but very dry minimal lean gains.
     
    Tbol falls somewhere in the middle imo.
