    Anavar, Furaguno, and T-3 Cycle

    I just started an Anavar , Furaguno, and T-3 cycle posted below yesterday. I started my diet posted below 1 week before the cycle to ease into it. I'm mid 40's 5'8" and 138 Lbs: I lost 2 Lbs last week on this diet: I intend to vary some food choices to keep it interesting, while trying to stick to my target macros. I'm an endurance athlete and lift during my off season. My goal is to gain strength without getting bulky. I'll let you know how it works out. I lift 3 days per week and do cardio 2-5 times per week. Workouts focus on legs, core strength, and minimal upper body. My current body fat is about 13% according to the active.com calculator. I'm waiting until week two to start the T-3 to see how my resting body temperature reacts to the cycle: pre cycle it was averaging about 96.5 degrees, which is kind of low.

    Cycle:
    Weeks 1-8 Anvar 10 mg 4-5/day
    Weeks 1-8 Furaguno 33 mg 2-3/day
    Weeks 1-8 Creatine 10 mg/day split in 4 doses with Grape Juice
    Weeks 1-8 Taurine 500 mg 2/day
    Weeks 1-13 Flax Seed Oil 1,000 mg 6/day
    Weeks 1-13 Perfect Cycle Liver Support 2/day
    Weeks 1-13 Glutamine 1 tsp 2-3/day AM, PWO, PM
    Weeks 2-6 T-3 25 mg 1-2/day
    Weeks 7-8 T-100X 2/day (Thyroid PCT)
    Weeks 3-8 Proviron 25 mg 1/day (optional anti e and libido)

    PCT:
    Week Nolvadex Clomid Vitamin E
    1 20mgs/day 50mg/day 1000iu/day
    2 20mgs/day 50mg/day 1000iu/day
    3 20mgs/day 50mg/day 1000iu/day

    Update Day 5

    My first 6 days were uneventful. I started out at 30mg/day anavar with 66 mg/day furaguno, on the third day I upped the anavar to 40mg, and on the sixth day to 50mg. Those were split into AM and PM doses. I lifted Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday; I did cardio Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. My weight has held steady at 138 lbs all week, my resting temperature has been 97.1 everyday, and my blood pressure hasn't gone up compared to precycle levels. I have gotten the anavar head ache a couple times, but aspirin has knocked that out. I do get an aching feeling in my chest near my heart, which I assume is AAS induced inflamation. I hope that subsides after a while. I have felt sluggish sometimes 1-2 hours after taking the AAS and have been sleeping an extra 1/2 to 1 hour/night.

    Monday's Workout:

    Squats 1 set 135 lbs for 12 reps followed by 2 sets 155 lbs for 12 reps.
    Straight arm pullover 1 set 40lbs 12 reps followed by 2 sets 50lbs 12 reps.
    Trunk curl machine 3 sets 85 lbs for 12 reps.
    Calf raises 1 set 80 lbs 12 reps followed by 2 sets 90 lbs 12 reps.
    Dips 3 sets of 12.
    Pull ups 3 sets of 8.
    Back extensions 3 sets of 12 with 25 lbs.

    Tuesday:

    1 hour low intensity cardio.

    Wednesday's workout:

    Dumb bell press 1 set 25 lbs 12 reps then 2 sets 27.5 lbs 12 reps.
    Hanging leg raises 3 sets of 12.
    Good Mornings 1 set 95 lbs 12 reps then 2 sets 115 lbs 12 reps.
    Leg press 3 sets 180 lbs 12 reps.
    Trunk curl 3 sets 90 lbs 12 reps.
    Bent over rowing 3 sets 95 lbs 12 reps.

    Thursday's workout:

    Squats 1 set 135 lbs 12 reps then 2 sets 155 lbs 12 reps.
    Bent arm pullovers 3 sets 50 lbs 12 reps.
    Trunk curl 3 sets 90 lbs 12 reps.
    Stiff legged deadlift 3 sets 135 lbs 12 reps.
    Pull ups 3 sets 8 reps.
    Calf Raises 3 sets 90 lbs 12 reps.
    Dips 3 sets 12 reps.

    Friday:

    1.25 hours low intensity cardio.

    Saturday's workout:

    Squats 3 sets 155lbs 12 reps.
    Straight arm pullovers 1 set 50 lbs 12 reps then 2 sets 55 lbs 12 reps.
    Trunk curl 3 sets 90 lbs 12 reps.
    Calf raises 3 sets 90 lbs.
    Dips 3 sets 12 reps.
    Back extensions 3 sets 25 lbs 12 reps.
    Pull ups 3 sets 8 reps.

    1 hour break then 1.5 hour low intensity cardio.

    So far no problems with anavar induced pumps interfering with my workouts, but I do 1 set of 30 push ups in the AM most days and my arms do seem a little pumped towards the end the the set. I'm going to stick with 50 mg/day ananvar and 66 mg/day furaguno for the next week and see how it works. I'm working at building my foundation over the next 4 weeks so that I can move onto strength building with more sets and less reps.

    Update Day 9

    I started T-3 25 mg/day (split into 2 dosed/day) on Sunday (day 7) and that has brought my resting temperature up to 97.3. I'm going to increase the dose to 37.5 mg/day split into 3 equal dosed during the day starting tomorrow. I'm also taking my anavar with 6-8 oz of grapefruit juice to see if that boosts the effectiveness. My weight crept back up to 140 Lbs over the last 3 days. My diet has been in check and my total calorie intake has be around 2,300 per day. I increased my workout schedule from 3 times/wk to 3 days on, 1 day off, 3 days on, 1 day off, and so on. It went well for the first two 3 in a row work outs. My lifts are increasing faster than in past years when I've run the same exercise program. I have good strength, muscle hardness, but haven't seen any significant increase in vascularity yet. Here are my workouts:

    Sunday's Workout:

    Dumbell Press 30 lbs 4 sets of 12 reps
    Hanging Leg Raises 4 sets of 12 reps
    Good Mornings 1 set 115 lbs for 12 reps then 3 sets 135 lbs for 12 reps
    Leg Press 4 sets 230 lbs 12 reps
    Trunk Curl 4 sets 95 lbs 12 reps
    Bent over rows 4 sets 95 lbs 12 reps

    Monday's Workout:

    Squats 4 sets 155 lbs 12 reps
    Bent arm pullovers 4 sets 55 lbs 12 reps
    Trunk Curl 4 sets 95 lbs 12 reps
    Stiff legged deadlift 4 sets 135 lbs 12 reps
    Pull ups 2 set 10 reps then 2 sets 8 reps
    Calf Raises 4 sets 115 lbs 12 reps

    Tuesday is a day off the I'll workout Wednesday through Friday.

    Update Day 11

    Going well so far. I have good strength during my workouts, good muscle hardness & definition, and no issues with pumps interfearing with my workouts (yet). I did push a little to far to fast with the good mornings on last sunday (day 8) and irritated a back injury that happened last June. Not painfull at all, but it feels like I tweaked my lower back (maybe minor cartilage damage to a disc). I'm backing off on the exercises that irritate that to help it settle down. I upped the T-3 dose to 37.5 mg in 3 even doses through the day yesterday. My resting temperature was up to 97.3 yesterday, but returned to 97.1 today. My weight went back down to 138, probably since I ran on a track for cardio for the first time in 2 weeks.

    Wednesday's Workout:

    Squats 1 set 155 lbs 12 reps, 3 sets 165 lbs for 12 reps.
    Straight arm pullover 1 set 50lbs 12 reps followed by 3 sets 60lbs 12 reps.
    Trunk curl machine 4 sets 95 lbs for 12 reps.
    Calf raises 4 sets 115 lbs 12 reps.
    Dips 4 sets of 12.
    Pull ups 2 sets of 10 and 2 sets of 8.
    Back extensions 4 sets of 12 with 35 lbs.

    Then ran 2 miles at a steady pace.

    Thursday's workout:

    Dumb bell press 4 sets 35 lbs 12 reps.
    Hanging leg raises 4 sets of 12.
    Good Mornings 4 sets 115 lbs 12 reps.
    Leg press 4 sets 250 lbs 12 reps.
    Trunk curl 4 sets 90 lbs 12 reps.
    Bent over rowing 1 set 115 lbs 12 reps, 3 sets 125 lbs 12 reps.

    Day 13 Update

    I went to my chiropractor on Friday, had him work on my back, and skipped lifting on his advice. I did an E-stim workout on my quads instead. Today I was back in the gym. My lower back was still a little tender, so I took it easy. My vascularity is noticably increased, especially while working out. Strenght seems to be steadily ramping up. I changed my T-3 dosing to 37.5 mg all at once before breakfast per the "T-3 when and how" thread recently posted. Got in some waxy maize and started using it with my post workout shake. Two scoops waxy maize (60 g carbs), then wait 15 minutes, then 1.5 scoops whey protein isolate (37.5 g protein).

    Saturday's Workout:
    Squats 1 set 135 lbs 12 reps and 3 sets 145 lbs 12 reps
    Bent arm pullovers 4 sets 60 lbs 12 reps
    Trunk Curl 4 sets 90 lbs 12 reps
    Stiff legged deadlift 4 sets 135 lbs 12 reps
    Pull ups 2 sets 8 reps then 2 sets 6 reps
    Calf Raises 4 sets 115 lbs 12 reps
    Leg Ab-ductor 4 sets 12 reps 90 Lbs
    Ran 2 miles on indoor track in about 15 minutes

    Day 21 Update

    My back is feeling better now that I went down to 3 days in the gym per week. I'm watching my diet and doing cardio on the days off from the gym. Since I started taking 25 mg Proviron ED my resting temperature in the AM has been bouncing around. Almost enough to consider stopping T-3. I'm going to keep a close eye on that for the next few days.

    Friday's Workout

    Squats 1 set 145 lbs 12 reps and 3 sets 155 lbs 12 reps
    Bent arm pullovers 4 sets 65 lbs 12 reps
    Trunk Curl 4 sets 95 lbs 12 reps
    Stiff legged deadlift 4 sets 145 lbs 12 reps
    Pull ups 2 sets 10 reps then 2 sets 8 reps
    Calf Raises 1 set 125 lbs 12 reps and 3 sets 135 lbs 10 reps
    Dips 4 sets with 10 lbs

    Saturday: off day

    Sunday: 1 hour moderate cardio

    Cool Day 27 Update

    Thanksgiving took it's toll! I was up to 140 lbs on Friday AM, but am back down to 139 lbs this AM (Saturday). Resting temperature is 96.8-97.1: it seems to drop the day after I'm in the gym. Dupa I'll post some pictures. I presume I have a much smaller build than most people on this board so I've been reticent to post pictures. Since I'm primarily an endurance athlete bulking up would be counterproductive for me. I do have less bf and muscle mass than you. Var and proviron combo have lived up to their reputations giving me better definition and muscle hardness: I don't know how much the Furaguno has influenced my results since I don't have any past cycles to compare too. My abs are looking trim since I shed much of the small amount of fat I started with. Strength is coming along more quickly than in past winters when I trained w/o AAS.

    Friday's Workout:

    Squats 1 set 155 lbs 12 reps, 1 set 185lbs 10 reps, and 2 sets 195lbs 10 reps
    Bent arm pullovers 1 set 65 lbs 12 reps, 2 sets 70lbs 10 reps, 4th 8 reps
    Trunk Curl 4 sets 105 lbs 10 reps
    Stiff legged deadlift 4 sets 145 lbs 12 reps
    Pull ups 2 sets 10 reps then 2 sets 8 reps
    Calf Raises 4 sets 135 lbs 10 reps
    Dips 4 sets with 10 lbs

    ran 2 miles moderate pace

    Skinny on Purpose!

    Thanks for your concern guys. I normally do eat more calories than I have lately. I'm trying to gain strength without bulk for a reason and to focus that strength in my legs. I'm an endurance athlete and I have to carry around all my weight with the power I can generate, and go fast doing it. Look at top level nordic skiers, runners, swimmers, triathletes, and cyclists: they all have builds similar to mine. I'm consuming around 2,400 calories a day 40% protein, 40 % carbs, and 20% fat right now. When I ramp up the cardio training after getting past the strength building phase in the weight room, then I'll be cranking up the carb content of my diet with my daily calorie count exceeding 3,500 (at a minimum). Besides, since I'm taking anavar , I probably wouldn't bulk up much even if I tried a bulking diet.

    Farmer's Tan

    I can't avoid the white look because I wear shorts and a jersey when doing my cardio outdoors in the spring, summer, and fall. I'll be in Hawaii for a while this winter, so I'll work on toning up the white areas then. As far as the design of my weight training program goes, it comes from an internationally recognized coach. The program starts with a transition phase, then strength building, then power, then speed strength, and finally maintenance into the season. The reps are high with light weights at the beginning and end of my weight training, and in the middle the sets go up, reps go down, and weight goes up. The only possible issue I've noticed with this weight training program is it's failure to separate areas of the body trained into separate workouts as done in body building. I think that's because of the focus on core and leg strength.

    Partial Squats: 1 set 6 reps 135 lbs, 1 set 6 reps 205 lbs, 3 sets 6 reps 215 lbs, 2 set 6 reps 205 lbs.

    Thursday: skiing.

    Friday:

    Power Clean: 1 set 6 reps 95 lbs, 1 set 6 reps 105 lbs, 3 sets 6 reps 115 lbs, 2 sets 6 reps 105 lbs.

    Day 37 Update

    Tuesday

    Bench Press: 1 set 6 reps 95 lbs, 1 set 6 reps 115 lbs, 5 sets 6 reps 125 lbs (my new PR!).
    High Pulls: 7 sets 6 reps 95 lbs
    Barbell Twist: 1 set 6 reps 115 lbs, 2 sets 6 reps 125 lbs, 4 sets 6 reps 135 lbs.
    Partial Squats: 7 sets 6 reps 225 lbs (tied my PR-1st time in 4 years!)

    Great workout but my diet went to hell when I got home. I cooked a whole turkey and ate 1,000 calories more than I should've. I guess that's a cheater day!

    Day 43 Update

    I took few days off from the gym to go skiing last week.

    Wednesday off

    Thursday skiing
    Friday skiing
    Saturday skiing

    Sunday skiing and weights:

    Power Clean 1 set 95 lbs 6 reps, 1 set 105 lbs 6 reps, 5 sets 110 lbs 6 reps
    Speed Squats 1 set 135 lbs 6 reps, 6 sets 185 lbs 6 reps
    Incline Press 1 set 95 lbs 6 reps, 1 set 105 lbs 6 reps, 4 sets 110 lbs 6 reps, 1 set 110 lbs 5 reps
    Rowing 3 sets 100 lbs 6 reps, 4 sets 115 lbs 6 reps

    Monday:

    Push Press 1 set 95 lbs 6 reps, 1 set 105 lbs 6 reps, 1 set 110 lbs 6 reps, 4 sets 115 lbs 6 reps
    Power Clean 1 set 95 lbs 6 reps, 1 set 105 lbs 6 reps, 1 set 110 lbs 6 reps, 4 sets 115 lbs 6 reps
    Squats 1 set 205 lbs 6 reps, 1 set 215 lbs 6 reps, 4 sets 225 lbs 6 reps, 1 set 205 lbs 6 reps
    Calf Raises 1 set 135 lbs 6 reps, 6 sets 145 lbs 6 reps
    Trunk Curl 1 set 110 lbs 6 reps, 6 sets 120 lbs 6 reps

    I've met or exceeded my personal maximum lifts on all exercises in the last week. I feel strong during my workouts. My muscle definition and hardness are great. I've come to a point in many of my exercises that adding more weight is aggravating old wrist, knee, shoulder, and back injuries. So I'm proceeding carefully and keeping the emphasis on good form and favoring high repetitions over going for heavier lifts.

    I started tapering off of T-3 today. I've been at 50 mg/day for several weeks. I'm tapering 2 days at 37.5, two days at 25, two days at 12.5, and then starting T-100X twice daily for thyroid pct. My AAS cycle will last 3 more weeks tapering to zero on 12/29. Then I'll be starting my pct of nolvadex and clomid. I have to travel to visit family for Christmas during the last 10 days of my cycle and start pct while on that visit. I hope it goes ok.

    Day 46 Update

    I'm continuing to taper off of T-3 and I'm down to 25 mg today: I'll do 12.5 the next two days and then I'm done. My weight is right at 137 lbs.

    Tuesday: off day.

    Wednesday: skiing.

    Thursday: xc skiing 1.5 hours and then...

    Bench Press: 1 set 6 reps 115 lbs, 2 sets 6 reps 125 lbs, 1 set 5 reps 125 lbs, 1 set 4 reps 125 lbs, 2 sets 6 reps 115 lbs
    High Pulls: 7 sets 6 reps 95 lbs
    Barbell Twist: 1 set 6 reps 115 lbs, 1 set 6 reps 125 lbs, 5 sets 6 reps 135 lbs.
    Partial Squats: 1 set 6 reps 205 lbs, 1 set 6 reps 215 lbs, 5 sets 6 reps 225 lbs.

    Working out was hard today since I was worn out from xc skiing. Never the less I matched my weights from the same workout the previous week.

    Ok why are you on T3, is it to lose fat? If your and endurance athlete you dont want to be super lean. You need fat stores to burn as energy. I am sure if your a high level endurance athlete you know how to control you heart rate relative to your lactate threshold and know when your anaerobic, so why the hell would you want to strip fat at all.

    Day 48 Update

    Thanks for the input guys. I think I'll have plenty of fat reserves. Typically I'm consuming carbohydrates for fuel while exercising. I only work out in the fat burning heart rate zone while building a fitness base and on recovery days. I'm sure my bodyfat will go up a little after my cycle is over. The last 2 weeks of my cycle I'll be visiting family for Christmas. That can throw a wrench in the old diet! Today was my last day tapering off of T-3. I took 12.5 mg this am. Tomorrow I start T-100X for thyroid pct. I still have 2 weeks left on Anavar & Furaguno, but the last week I'll be gradually tapering down to zero. I weighed 136.5 lbs today, which is 1.5 lbs short of my goal of 135 lbs.

    Friday:

    Power Clean 1 set 95 lbs 6 reps, 1 set 105 lbs 6 reps, 5 sets 115 lbs 6 reps
    Speed Squats 7 sets 185 lbs 6 reps
    Incline Press 1 set 95 lbs 6 reps, 6 sets 105 lbs 6 reps
    Rowing 2 sets 100 lbs 6 reps, 5 sets 115 lbs 6 reps

    Felt a little tired today so I didn't try to push the weights too hard.

    Saturday: off day. Slept in and took a long walk.

    I'll try to post some new pictures in a couple of days.

    Day 56 Update

    I've been traveling to visit family for Xmas this week. Managed to work out Monday, Friday, and Sunday. Traveling last Tuesday and hanging out with the family have shot my diet to hell, but at least I came into it lean! I weighed in on Friday AM at 140 lbs and haven't had access to a scale since then: I always gain weight visiting home for Xmas. I tapered my anavar dose to 40 mg ed this week to stretch my cycle out until the end of the month. The pumps seem more pronounced now that I'm at sea level and in a warmer climate. I'll be tapering 30mg to 20 mg to 10 mg during the last couple days of the month and then off at the end of the month. Then onto cardio 10-15 hours per week along with several weight workouts per week for the next 3 months. Then into the competitive season.

    Monday's Workout:

    Push Press 1 set 95 lbs 6 reps, 6 sets 105 lbs 6 reps
    Power Clean 1 set 95 lbs 6 reps, 1 set 105 lbs 6 reps, 5 sets 115 lbs 6 reps
    Squats 1 set 205 lbs 6 reps, 6 sets 225 lbs 6 reps
    Calf Raises 1 set 135 lbs 6 reps, 6 sets 145 lbs 6 reps
    Trunk Curl 1 set 110 lbs 6 reps, 6 sets 120 lbs 6 reps

    Friday's Workout:

    Bench Press: 1 set 6 reps 115 lbs, 2 sets 6 reps 125 lbs, 1 set 5 reps 125 lbs, 1 set 4 reps 125 lbs, 2 sets 6 reps 115 lbs
    High Pulls: 7 sets 6 reps 95 lbs
    Barbell Twist: 1 set 6 reps 115 lbs, 6 sets 6 reps 135 lbs.
    Partial Squats: 1 set 6 reps 205 lbs, 6 sets 6 reps 225 lbs.

    Sunday's Workout:

    Power Clean 1 set 95 lbs 6 reps, 6 sets 115 lbs 6 reps
    Speed Squats 7 sets 205 lbs 6 reps
    Incline Press 1 set 95 lbs 6 reps, 2 sets 105 lbs 6 reps, 1 set 105 lbs 6 reps, 1 set 105 lbs 4 reps, 2 sets 95 lbs 6 reps
    Rowing 1 set 110 lbs 6 reps, 6 sets 120 lbs 6 reps

    Day 57 Update

    Monday's Workout:

    Push Press 1 set 95 lbs 6 reps, 1 set 105 lbs 6 reps, 1 set 115 lbs 6 reps, 4 sets 125 lbs 6 reps
    Power Clean 1 set 95 lbs 6 reps, 6 sets 105 lbs 6 reps
    Squats 1 set 205 lbs 6 reps, 1 set 215 lbs 6 reps, 5 sets 225 lbs 6 reps
    Calf Raises 1 set 135 lbs 6 reps, 6 sets 145 lbs 6 reps
    Trunk Curl 1 set 25 lbs 6 reps, 6 sets 35 lbs 6 reps: my winter training gym doesn't have an ab crunch machine so I'm doing these on an incline sit up bench with a plate on my chest. Whatever it takes!

    I also did cardio for 2 hours today which will be a typical daily amount here on out going into my competitive season. Maybe I should do more considering that I weighed in at 143 lbs today. That's my highest weight since before my cycle began. It's ok as long as it's muscle!

    Tuesday will be some cardio and no weights. Back in the gym this Wednesday.

    Merry Christmas!

    Day 63 Update

    Unfortunately the holiday season did my diet in. I'm up to 147 Lbs today: I was 137 12 days ago. I was maybe even too low body fat while on T-3, so the weight doesn't look bad on me. Today was my last workout day of my cycle as I taper off. Next Monday I start Clomid and Nolvadex for PCT.

    Wednesday's Workout:

    Bench Press: 1 set 6 reps 115 lbs, 3 sets 6 reps 125 lbs, 1 set 5 reps 125 lbs, 2 sets 6 reps 115 lbs
    High Pulls: 1 set 6 reps 95 lbs, 6 sets 6 reps 105 lbs
    Barbell Twist: 7 sets 6 reps 135 lbs.
    Partial Squats: 2 sets 6 reps 225 lbs, 5 sets 6 reps 245 lbs.

    Friday's Workout:

    Power Clean 1 set 95 lbs 6 reps, 6 sets 105 lbs 6 reps
    Speed Squats 7 sets 205 lbs 6 reps
    Incline Press 1 set 95 lbs 6 reps, 4 sets 105 lbs 6 reps, 2 sets 95 lbs 6 reps
    Rowing 7 sets 120 lbs 6 reps
