Shoot let me tell you about Halo. So first is just the feeling of knowing you have a gun at a knife fight. In other words its doesnt have you tearing thru racks but it does give the confidence or feeling to do so if you wanted or needed to. In my experience and im sure others is different, it also works really well during prep in two ways
1. The whole confidence thing also goes into the fact it adds a certain energy or feeling to get you thru some long or otherwise boring workouts (most find it useful towards the tail end of prep when the grind takes its toll)
2. Im sure this is debatable, but like Anavar I believe that Halo works best when the body is at a low body fat percent. There are just some things you wont see until the fat comes down. I would compare the look or appearance of the muscle to that of Winstrol. It can really help with that hardened grainy look.
Ive had the chance to run them a few days now and today specifically (leg day) it just felt great. I wish I could say there were some sort of substantial gains but again its more about the feeling.
On the other hand, Anavar is equally great and ive said this from long ago and its been debated but for me and I believe most men, Anavar as a stand alone compound seems to work best in a low body fat percent but moreover attacks body fat specifically in the stomach and lower back. Again its been debated but for me it has always helped with the really last bit of fat you can drop. Its crazy because its much easier to drop from say 20% to 15% or even 10% but when you get to say 8% and are going to need to be in the 4-5% range those ranges become much more of task to target directly without risking overdoing it and losing muscle. (again I learned that one first hand) so to have something that can target those pockets of fat is a huge help. This season and although I am fairly lean, those 30lbs gained have proven to be more difficult to cut down as I am still carrying a little extra lower back fat at the moment. But im also at a target weight so its a juggling act.
