hey guys/ladies , so i decided to start my 1st Anavar cycle, here is a little bit about me. i have been training for 3 years on and off cause of a shoulder injury but i have been training consistently for 6 month now, i am from egypt so its a bit challenging , the gyms we have here is not that grat, offcourse we have very fancy ones but they are way overpriced, same goes to trainers, most of them are completely ignorant, and the well educated ones charge more than my whole yearly salary lol. so god bless the internet i am trying to learn and read as much as i can, and meso have been a great help as of lately. i was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa at age of 16, struggled with anorexia for 6 years, and i truly recovered when i got into training and healthy eating, the passion i had for training outgrew the anorexia. so enough with the boring details, i decided to start anavar for several reasons, mainly for strength gains , and for my joints, correct me if i am wrong but i heared steroids are helpful when it comes to joints problems. i am on day 7 , started with 5 mg the 1st 3 days, then upped to 10 mg. planning to stay on 10 mg for 2 weeks then up it to 15 mg for 5 weeks ( if no sides with the 10 mg dose offcourse) then taper to 10 for one week and 5 for the final week. so 10 weeks in total. today i did my squats with 147 lbs ( that if you calculate the whole weight and the weight of the bar aswell) which is a new record leg press 154 lbs (new record aswell yay ) leg extensions (drum roll) it was 100 lbs for each leg so total 200 lbs on the machine. i felt pretty good today, only sides so far are the sensitive female parts which i am not complaining about honestly other than that i am feeling great. will do my best to update here daily. i try to keep my cals at 1700 cals , my TDEE is 2000, so i am trying to cut back a bit, my diet is mostly very healthy 40% protein 40% fats 20% carbs. p.s english isn't my first language but i am trying my best. and i have been seeing some progress also , don't know its the anavar kicking in or working my ass off is starting to pay. here we go a pic just something to compare to later.
