You want to get big. You’ve seen the gains that others have made, and you’re ready to jump on board. But there’s one problem: you don’t know where to start. Ever heard of an Anavar and Test cycle?

Don’t worry; we’re here to help. In this article, we’ll be discussing the basics of an Anavar and Test cycle.

Anavar and Test Cycles Everything You Need to Know

When you try to do research, terminology, phrasing, and explanations can be somewhat confusing. We’re here to make things simple for even recreational lifters, who never used a supplement in their life, let alone a steroid.

We’ll go through everything you need to know, from start to finish.

So, without further ado, let’s jump into it.

What is Test (Testosterone)

Testosterone is a hormone that’s produced naturally in the testes of men. It’s responsible for developing male characteristics, such as facial hair and a deep voice.

It also affects muscle growth, bone density, and red blood cell production. Testosterone levels peak in early adulthood and then gradually decline with age.

Low testosterone can cause many symptoms, including low sex drive, fatigue, and depression.

Testosterone replacement therapy can improve symptoms, but it’s not without risks. The hormone has been used for decades by athletes to enhance performance.

Testosterone is classified as an androgen, which is any hormone that promotes masculinization. It’s also a controlled substance in many countries because of its potential for abuse.

What Is Anavar

Anavar is the brand name for the synthetic steroid Oxandrolone. It’s similar to testosterone in its effects but less potent.

Anavar is used to help people gain weight after an injury or illness. It’s also used to treat conditions such as osteoporosis.

The drug was first developed in 1964 and approved by the FDA for human use. However, it’s still abused by athletes and bodybuilders for its anabolic effects.

Anavar vs. Test Cycle

There are a few critical differences between Anavar and Testosterone. And as you might’ve preassumed, we’re going to look at them now.

When to Use Test (Testosterone)

Testosterone replacement therapy is only recommended for men with low testosterone levels. That can be caused by testicular cancer, injury, or age-related declines.

In the PED field, however, athletes and bodybuilders use testosterone to enhance their performance and build muscle mass. It’s usually injected, taken as a pill, or used as a topical gel or patch.

Testosterone can have serious side effects when misused. These include heart attacks, strokes, blood clots, and liver damage.

When to Use Anavar

Anavar is a unique steroid. It’s a dihydrotestosterone derivative, which doesn’t turn into Estrogen when it hits your system.

That’s different from testosterone, which can aromatize (convert into Estrogen). And that makes Anavar a good choice for cutting cycles when you want to minimize water retention and fat gain.

Anavar is also used to help people gain weight after an injury or illness. It can be taken orally or injected.

How to Use Test (Testosterone)

If you’re using testosterone for medical reasons, your doctor will likely start you on a low dose and gradually increase it as needed.

For athletes and bodybuilders, however, the usual dose is 250 to 500 mg injected into the muscle every two to four weeks.

Most people who abuse testosterone use much higher doses. That can increase the risk of severe side effects.

How to Use Anavar

The usual dose of Anavar is 2.5 to 20 mg per day for men and 2.5 to 10 mg per day for women. Of course, if you plan on using a steroid like Anavar, there are a few things you should do:

test cycle
  • Monitor Your Blood Pressure: Anavar can cause an increase in blood pressure. So, if you have hypertension (high blood pressure), you should be especially careful when using this drug.
  • Get Your Blood Work Done: Your liver enzymes can be affected by Anavar use. So, if you have liver problems, you should avoid this drug.
  • Lose Weight: As you probably heard, Anavar can help you lose weight, but it’s not a magic pill. You still need to diet and exercise to see results.

Side Effects of Test (Testosterone)

As mentioned, testosterone can have serious side effects when misused. Some of the major ones include:

  • Heart Attacks: Testosterone can increase the risk of heart attacks, especially in men over 65.
  • Blood Clots: The hormone can cause blood clots to form, leading to serious health problems.
  • Increased Aggression: It can also increase aggression and irritability, so you might get into more fights than usual.
  • Testicular Atrophy: Testosterone can cause your testicles to shrink due to decreased endogenous production of the natural hormone in your body.

Things like acne, hair loss, and enlarged breasts can also occur. But these side effects are more familiar with high doses or long-term use.

Side Effects of Anavar

Anavar is generally considered a safe drug but can have side effects, mainly when used in high doses. Side effects you should pay special attention to include:

  • High Blood Pressure: Anavar can cause an increase in blood pressure. So, if you have hypertension, you should be especially careful when using this drug.
  • Liver Damage: If you have liver problems – or even if someone in your family has them- you should avoid this drug.
  • Acne: Anavar can cause acne, especially in people predisposed to it.

Can You Use Anavar With Test?

Yes, you can use Anavar with testosterone. Since Anavar won’t convert into Estrogen, it can help you control some side effects of testosterone, like water retention and bloat.

However, both substances can be complex on your heart, liver, and blood pressure. So, if you have any underlying health conditions, you should talk to your doctor before using them.

Can Women Use Test?

Technically, yes, women can use testosterone. However, we don’t recommend it, and neither does the FDA. That’s because testosterone can cause masculinizing side effects in women, like deepening of the voice and facial hair growth.

Can Women Use Anavar?

Yes, women can use Anavar. Tons of amateur female athletes and fitness models use Anavar. That’s because it’s a very effective drug for helping them lose fat and get toned without building too much muscle mass.

Androgenic side effects of Anavar are nonexistent in women, so they don’t have to worry about masculinizing side effects like deepening the voice and facial hair growth.

How to Use Test With Steroids

When using testosterone with steroids, starting with a low dose and increasing it gradually is essential. That way, you can see how your body reacts and make sure you’re not overdoing it.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when using testosterone with steroids:

  • Establish How Much Test You Need: How much test can your body handle? Some people can’t use more than a few hundred mg per week, while others can handle a thousand or even more.
  • Determine Which One You Need: To be used properly, the test must be suspended in a carrier oil. So it will react differently to the body because of the ester nature of the hormone. Experiment a little, and be prepared for a few weeks of trial and error.
  • Be Prepared to Deal With Side Effects: Before you even start noticing results, you might experience some side effects. If the side effects weaken, you might need to adjust your dose or stop using the drugs altogether.
