    4th week of PureGear Anavar and no gains

    hey guys after reading many threads about anavar i decided to give it a try. mostly for strength gains. 24 yrs 5'10 200lbs been lifting for a while. my original plan was to run some test e with the anavar but it never came through ( still waiting btw) so i decided to just run the var. most users said they had good gains from 40-60mg ED.
    1st week- 30mg (just to start off) w/ 15g creatine
    2nd week-40mg w/ 15g creatine
    3rd week - 60mg
    4th week 100mg

    now the first thing most users noticed was them getting harder and veins popping out. i didn't notice much b/c i was already rock solid and no veins popping out. within the 2nd week i was up 5lbs but that was most likely due to creatine with a great diet.

    the only thing that gave me hope was bench day a couple days ago. i was reppin 20lbs more like nothing. my buddy was in shock. i thought it finally kicked in and went into deadlifting and no strength increase. same with most other. i just started running 100mg yesterday and not sure if i should keep running it as this is my last packet. its 10mg var from PureGear. i'm deff not buying it again as its a bit pricy and i havent gotten any gains. i will give it another shot tho from another manufacture.

    am i doing something wrong guys? my diet is great and protien intake is high too. i had to stop my creatine use as i have psoriasis(the irony) and it flared up like crazy. once i stopped it cleared up but still there a little


    Diet:
    6:00 am bowl of oats with peanuts, or cheese sandwhich with tea
    9:00 am 20 potatoe wedges with a chicken breast and leg or chicken sandwhich
    12:00 pm lots of rice noodles and beef with chicken
    3:00 pm some sort of soup with a big bowl of salad and some meat on side
    7:00 pm usually a cheat meal, like one big mac
    7:30 pm protien shake
    9:00 pm 1 or 2 ham and cheese sandwhiches with tea
    11:00 Peanut Butter sandwhich

    The only problem i know is my sleep, there are days when i onpy get 4-5 hours of sleep due to school and work. Im trying to get at least 7 hrs from now on

    There are a lot of issues with your cycle brother. What is your BF percentage? Is this your first cycle? The first mistake is your diet. Diet, nutrition, and training needed to be dailed in before ever starting your first cycle or you are just wasting your time, money, and possibly increasing your health risk if diet is right. Secondly your expectations of anavar are way too much for the doseage you are taking especially without test. Your cycle has no base. It needs test and if you couldn't get test then you should not of started cycle. This is why you are not making any gains. Anavar is not known for big gains in mass anyway. It will help boost strength and harden you up if your bodyfat is low enough. I am currently finishing up a cycle with it right now. I ran test cyp with the var during the last 4 weeks. I had great results from the var. Really helped harden up the gains I made from the test. Var is not an efficient steroid by any means when you look at cost to gains. Next time be patient and get everything in order before you jump into something. Also check out the diet and nutrition section to work on your diet. Hope it goes better next time around. If you need help when you are ready we are here.

    TGB nailed it.

    If you are looking to add muscle mass, then Anavar was not the best choice for you in the first place. Also, if your BF% is not low, it is doubtful that you will see much in the way of definition, hardness or vascularity from this compound anyway.

    Your diet is also in shambles...a big mac? Are you serious bro?

    I would post your diet and training routine in the appropriate forums and let us help you there first.

    La Big Mac? How about a Royale w/ cheese? Your diet is sub-par. That's # 1. It starts and ends with diet. These guys know what they're talking about.

    well that was just a sample diet. i do eat a lot of carbs. lots of pasta, potatoes, etc. i know its not a cycle without test but i've been waiting for test for over 2 months already from naps. don't know whats going on.
    i'm not trying to gain mass on anavar. i just wanted an increase of strength.

    Did biceps yesterday and had pretty good pumps. did more weight than usual. maybe this shit takes a couple of weeks to kick in for me. we'll see what happens the more i workout.

    thanks for the imput though! i will deff set up a better diet for next cycle
    my current cal intake is about 3k-4k and my bf is 12%

    You got good pumps and did more weight than usual? What kind of strength increase were you expecting from Anavar? Sounds like the Var you have is probably ok. I have heard a lot of positive reviews about PureGear brand.
