    Powerlifter Chick (Female) Var Cycle

    Alright, I'm going to post this as a placeholder for when I actually get started, which will be either in one week or two--I think one week, but depending on a situation I'll describe in a minute here it might be two.

    Stats:

    Female, 28 years old, 5'2", powerlifter for 2 1/2 years and have been lifting weights since 2010 (although the beginning was pretty shaky and had false starts and stops). I have competed in a variety of weight classes and held a top-ten national ranking at a low weight class when I competed there. I have since decided to move up a few weight classes because I'm too tall for the lower ones (that's right, 5'2" is tall if you're a female PLer).

    Weight: right now, 130.1. I don't really care about my weight so much as...

    BF%: 19. Ugh. I bulked all of last year and got up to 143 and brought it down to my now-130 and it used to be higher than 19%, but that's still pretty terrible. My hopes with doing Var will be in part to help bring my stupid body comp into line. Yes, I understand that that is all about diet. And yes, I think I've done a pretty good job with that so far--I've lost over ten pounds but have increased strength on two of my three lifts, which is a pretty solid feat for a strength athlete who is on a caloric deficit.

    I plan on starting at 10 mg/day and going from there--top dose TBD. I'll be supping with NAC, Taurine, fish oil, and a multi--I also do some preworkout and biotin, but other than that I am not much of a supplement person. I eat a solid diet of lean meat and produce and oats and nuts and other good fats and some dairy. I take fairly regular cheat meals--once or twice per two-week period, but I may adjust that depending on what I want to do with the Var and how I respond to it. I've been on a pretty hard caloric deficit for a while--1630 cal/day--and am still losing weight. I actually don't want my weight to drop a whole lot more (if at all) but I do want the body comp to change.

    So I thought I'd through another girl log on here just to get more happening. Cheers to everyone!

    So right now the thing that's kind of throwing me starting up with this is that I'm doing a meet very soon. I will be picking up my Var on Friday of this coming week. I will be having a deload week starting after next weekend where I'll be doing less lifting and more resting and I'm not sure if I should start with my low dose during that week or not. Like honestly have no idea. Maybe it would be a good idea, or maybe it would NOT be a good idea. Part of me thinks it might be beneficial for meet day, and part of me thinks that it would be stupid to start the cycle when I'm not doing as much lifting (that week I'll probably be doing some moderate benching and squatting to keep up my motor patterns and a bunch of little bodybuilding lifts on some days). I'd appreciate anyone's thoughts on this and I can be more specific as to the timeline if needed.

    Good 2 c another female cycle up in here

    I'd start whenever you think it's a good time. My recommendation is start slow, 5mg & go from there depending on side(if any).


    But, it's up 2 u really - sounds like you have a fairly good idea of what you're doin'

    I think I'm doing pretty well with the self-education on this one. I have also turned to four different voices in my sport--three female, one make--who have really been helping. Whenever I actually start--between 2 and 5 weeks from now, I think--I feel equipped with knowledge to do this right.

    Dude, yeah, honestly, I feel kind of lucky. I think the tradeoff is the social stigma that women face when they take stuff though. Like MAN is it not ok if you're a woman to be doing this stuff even at a very low-moderate level. Physically it's more complicated for you guys and socially it's more complicated for us because people freak out if a woman does anything that might remotely threaten (American)westernized concepts of femininity. The irony is that a lot of women who do var or whatever at low doses end up having far more ideal physiques than those who are natty--the general public just has no idea.

    Yeah, I have been at this for a while now & it's a fact - a lot of females are on sauce. Guys are too, then some


    As far as being more accepted - I dunno

    If you're a guy & juiced, it's not accepted by society damn near whatsoever. People have no clue on what juice does or how.


    But, for sure - Just about all of the women and men that you see with extreme physiques are sauced. Most will lie through their teeth to their own mom, just because of society's outlook.


    Me, personally - No one knows what I do unless they are very close to me. But, I am getting to unnatural size & it's getting to a point where people will just say shit like "I'd be that big too if I was on what you're on" < hate that crap



    After a few years of doing this, I can care less if my woman or any other female gets on gear. Just do it safely - If it starts to effect their femininity, that's a side effect they have to fight & live with. Shit, not all much worse than a gyno outbreak for a guy.
