EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding ForumsBy atdaviesJune 3, in Steroid and Testosterone information. I am a crossfitter Dont want a discussion on this and im looking to get stronger in general without getting too big so no water retention crosefit led me to anavar. If you anavar only cycle crossfit crossfit I assume you do daily rigorous cardio - your bp and cardio will go to sh1t on anavar but yes strength will go up. It's more for the strength side of crossfit I'm interested anavar only cycle crossfit it for. Pumps can be crippling on anavar. Some people don't suffer from these but i get them off all orals, if you're the same what is the best pct for winstrol me you won't even be able to walk at a decent pace without being crippled. Taurine can help some people with pump crodsfit but does fvck all for me, which is a shame as i like var as a compound, can't say i noticed particularly good strength gains on it, i prefer winny for that.
CrossFit and Anavar
Know an athlete or personality? Talk to them, message the Mods , and we'll arrange an AMA! This subreddit is not affiliated with CrossFit Inc. Steroids and Crossfit self. This is a throwaway acct. I know drugs are bad, m'kay. I'm not looking for a morality check. But I am hoping to have an honest discussion. I'm 39M and have been doing Crossfit for 2 years.
I can dead lift , squat , do 10 unbroken strict pull ups, 35 unbroken dubs but can't do a muscle up to save my life. I've done a sprint triathlon or two and run k events. I've done some local throw-downs but I'm never going to make the games nor has that ever been a goal of mine. I've become interested in Steroids. I was interested in trying one cycle of something like Anavar, which have been called "steroids-lite". My questions are simple.
What is your quality of life on them and how did they improve your Crossfit performance? Was there any unexpected drawbacks? The reasons are mostly superficial. My training has plateaued. I'm also at a point in my life where I wouldn't mind taking one more leap in performance before hitting my 40's. So I'm hoping those of you that have or currently are on a PED can enlighten me on the real world benefits and pitfalls of being on a cycle.
I've done tons of research into steroids and given what you've described this is what you want. Even though you're 39 you can probably benefit more by going on a strength-specific program, or hiring a good strength coach, or both. Need more upvotes on this one. I'm 35 and I switched to a more strength-biased program a year ago, and cut my training to mostly 3 days per week.
I am sure that if I switched to a decent power lifting program and let go of the metcon fitness for a while I would have made even larger gains. And at 40, your insurance will pay for it. Anavar is for chicks. Also if you want size or strength gains you have to train for them. That means eating above maintenance calories and protein. Try a 3 day a week WOD to maximize your recovery. Don't forget any gains you make on drugs will go away when you remove the drugs from the equation.
Don't take oral steroids. Do not jump on unless you have done a lot of research. Must people tend to suggest a test only cycle for the first time. Don't start until you already have you pct on hand. At your age, you will lose most of it as soon as you stop. If you are going to do this, you need to turn to the people who live and die by it. You would probably be getting something else and just not known what. Many of these also cause anxiety and shortness of breath.
That ain't going to fly in Metcon. Never heard of a "full squat snatch" until Crossfit came around; before that it was just a snatch. It's legal and at least you'll have a doctor and not end up ruining your future testosterone levels. FYI you wouldn't be able to do any big weightlifting competitions or Crossfit comps, but it seems like you aren't planning to anyway.
Why do you want to "take one more leap in your performance"? Just to prove it to yourself or are you planning to compete? No interest in competing. I simply haven't seen the gains that I should be I understand this comes with age, but its still a bitch to deal with. I'd like to make one last push to hit big numbers before I get to the point when I say "Yeah, I used to be able squat lbs when I was younger Gotta agree with this. More than 1 or 2 metcons a week especially at your age - sorry, it's just the truth is going to be sapping your ability to recover at a rate that truly helps your strength gains.
Given your numbers, maybe try sheiko. Morality bullshit aside, I think PEDs are a calculated risk, and while you're hoping for one more leap before your 40s, you also don't want a big slip before your 40s either. Regardless of the potential benefits, the risks just don't seem worth it when there are other viable alternatives you may not yet have explored. From the looks of it you have never been to a legit box.
Although I do agree crossfit is not designed for major strength gains, however when programmed properly it is anything but "random exercises" with "no consistency in the programming". That being said Wendler's, stronglifts, smolov or smolov jr even squats and milk is going to help get over that plateau.
The most important thing is to stop hitting metcons 5x a week. And do yourself a favor increase your caloric intake. There is truth to your statement. However, crossfit is in fact designed for you to progress in strength.
We don't just do "get you tired" workouts. It does in fact depend on the programming. Agree to some extent.
OP shouldn't simply resort to steroids cause he's plateauing. Change up your diet, cutback on MetCons, and focus on technique mobility and recovery, and your strength numbers will probably go up. I can assure you that my diet is solid. My routine is 5x per week with added swim bike run triathlon work on the side. I've also recently completed the Stronglift 5x5. All with moderate success. Its not that I am not putting in the work, or that my diet isn't in check. I've simply hit the age where gains aren't as apparent as they once were.
I'm a long way from an expert, but isn't doing a heap of triathlon training going to take away from strength work? This always bugs me. Programming has to be intelligent and geared towards what your goals are. You want to get really strong? You want to kick ass in triathlons? Run, swim and bike. You want to do a muscle-up? Work on a muscle up progression program. Talk with your coaches and figure out how best to achieve your goals, whatever they may be.
Remember even Games level competitors aren't going to be "elite" in any non weightlifting event. Sure they train running and swimming and biking to the extent that they can handle them in a WOD, but unless they were already an elite level athlete in one of those events before starting CrossFit the best most of them can hope for is to be "average" at least compared to a field of people that train for specificity.
You guys are putting too much emphasis on Tri training. My main training focus is crossfit I've added supplemental lifting via Stronglift 5x5 and our gym's "Barbell Club". But as far as Triathlon training goes, its nothing more than going out for an occasional run or biking a few miles or possibly going for a swim.
It may get more focused as events come closer, but its never been a cornerstone of my training. The only point I'm trying to make is if you don't follow some sort of logical programming that fits your goals you won't reach them efficiently. Regardless of what supplements you choose to use. Lot's of people mix and match programs and wonder why they don't make improvements.
That goes for arbitrarily adding a strength program to your gym's programming. Especially if they have a strength component to the workouts. If you're adding two different programming cycles together then neither one will have as much as an effect as running one by itself. My training focus is Crossfit. Triathlon training is more or less a bike ride, a jog or a light swim. Granted, it may get a bit more focused as events get closer I wholeheartedly agree with this.
