BlueCollar, I'm on week 9 of my test/EQ. I have definitely noticed increased endurance, especially after week 5. I was taking anavar at 30mg for the first 5 as well. I bumped it to 40mg but found the pumps to be too debilitating for my activities. Strength has been going up, not drastically, albeit steady. I was hoping for more joint relief from the EQ but I'm thinking the dose might be too low (not taking any AI). I have not been affected by any hunger pangs or anxiety associated with the EQ so that's a plus. Recovery has been fantastic and I have been experiencing a euphoric feeling unlike any of my previous cycles. I have really been enjoying the cycle so far.
During an off-season period of growth the goal is simple; to gain more lean tissue plain and simple. During the off-season, due to the mild nature of this steroid most men will find very little use for it with other anabolic androgenic steroids being far more efficient. Sure, gains can be made but it will in most cases take a massive amount and this can be very costly to your pocket book. However, Anavar for women during this period is a very different story; while the Oxandrolone hormone is mild in nature females are far more sensitive to the hormone and will yield a higher return in-terms of growth on a per milligram basis.
