"No Test, No Cycle"
I see a lot of threads were someone is running a cycle without test and invariably a response like "no test, no cycle" will pop up. Everyone seems to think test needs to be run in every cycle. Why is this? From what I know about test it causes weight gain and water retention. So what if someone was cutting, is test good for that? What if they are an athlete who competes in a weight class and can't afford to gain much weight, is test good for that? Or waht if all they are looking for is a boost in strength with minimal weight gain and water retention, is test good for that?
So why should test be run in every cycle? What is it about test that seems to make it ideal no matter what the goal of the cycles are? Or do most people just assume everyone on here is trying to get huge from their cycles?

Most gear will shut you down(natural testosterone levels ). Some harder than others. That's why you want to add test to your cycle. You can use Test Prop if your concerned with water retention.
What kind of cycle do you plan on using? What are your stats?

Test is what makes the body grow. when steroids are taken, natural test production
will get shut down. with no test in the body you will suffer from side effects like lethargy LIMP DICK, lack of agression and just general well being.
if you run test in your cycles you will not encounter these problems. Infact you will feel great.
yes test can retain water but there is ways around that. Use of anti-e's will keep the bloat down. or you can use test prop. is is a fast acting ester that does not make you hold as much water as test-e or cyp

I'm an athlete and I can't afford to gain much more weight. It's not that I compete in a weight class or anything, but for my sport I am at a good weight. If anything, I may be a little heavy. Anyways, I am currently running just var at 40mg/ed for 5 weeks (I am on week 3). I have seen some very nice results with this in terms of muscle hardness, vascularity and strength. I also have Clomid for PCT.
I was thinking of running a test/var cycle next time, but I am concerned about water retention and weight gain. I thought about running prop but I am concerned about the pains. I can't afford to miss training because my quad is to sore or whatever. I would rather not use then miss training, my off-season is too short to be wasting it. Any thoughts?
Oh ya, for my stats I am very lean and muscular. I am 5' 10", 175lbs., ~8% bf. I have been lifting weights for 10 years off and on. In the last three years I have been lifting pretty seriously to improve in athletics.

prop and var would be great for lean hard gains. prop will keep the bloat down.
prop does not need to be painfull. buy from a good ugl and you should have no problem. or brew your own. mine does not hurt a bit. if it is a little sore, you can cut it with b-12 or sterial oil.

Should I still run Nolva during the cycle to help with water retention? Or will the var take care of that?

Im very skeptical of the claims that test helps with things other than muscle gain...
Remember, this is synthetic test, not real test. Its as foreign to your body as eq or tren would be. I believe test giving a sense of well being and helping with libido is completely placebo effect and not true at all. This is a foreign substance not at all like your own natural test.
I have NO libido on test, nor do I have much energy, and its probably because I know better than to believe that stuff and fall victim to the placebo effect.
(For safety reasons Ill point out this is strictly opinion, but it makes complete sense)

I have, and will never do it again. I felt like a bag of shit.
I dont understand how you can have no libido on test. most bros are a walking boner. you are the first person I have ever heard that does not feel better on test. yes it is synthetic, but with out useing it, with out a doubt you wont be as well off.

I amno where close to a experienced guy but my frist cycle i ran no test just tren this is a bad example cause tren shuts you down hardcore but take it from me you need test you don't wanna deal with the side effects of it. you will still have gains but just throw in some test. test prop you will not put on water weight. Unless you wanna disappoint the ladies you need test.
