certain bf in order for var to be effective?
i have heard that you have to be at a relatively low body fat for var to be really effective? how low is that because i dont wanna waste a boatload of cash on something that would be less effective at my current bf. thanks!

around the 10% range give or take...... it will help with some fat loss but not enough if your bf is high.

body fat shouldnt effect the strength gains from var....Right just the abdominal fat loss properties that is touted

my body fat is in the 15-17% range. i was planning on adding it at the tail end of my test/eq cycle to get ripped up. could it work and help a little?

It will increase your strength significantly, but I would not count on losing much fat from it without diet/cardio.

this guy is correct - dont be afraid to do MORE cardio and eat LESS than conventional wisdom recommends.

About to start a clen cycle and just got off a ten week cycle of var...of course I've been doing hella dieting and cardio...but I can honestly say that I've never seen such a short term dramatic change in my stomach and waistline...went from 172 22% bfbodyfat to 158 18%bf...and I have to admit I didn't get my diet kicking til the tail end of the cycle...strength gains were great...of course no vascularization cause still a little too much insulation...may try another var cycle after the clen..but it is much cheaper for me considering smaller general dosage...sometimes question whether I should have started with the clen first but am very happy with the results I came out with...can almost bounce a quarter off my behind...almost...xxxSass

u get to 11%, watch out!

Doing a lot of cardio will just burb fat - thats all. If you burn fat then you will *see* results from var such as hardness and vascularity.
Even if you pig out and get fat using var - you will still get strength gains

It is always effective --> You just might be talking about actually
"seeing changes" and then I recommend you do not have a BF% higher then 25%, if so then you are always going to see some differences! (Low Bodyfat logically makes you see "drastic changes").

I don't believe you about the quarter. Either post a video clip or let me try.
