because test works.
it's cheap and it fucking works.
your ONLY GOAL when 'cutting' is to MAINTAIN MUSCLE MASS.
the whole "trend" with the low test/high anabolic nonsense is making suppliers richer, but ain't doing much for your physique... unless you wanna look like an underwear model.
worried about water? use Aromasin.
The only other drug worthy of spending cash on is Tren.
...But even then, test makes you feel great, just control for estrogen, and you'll perform like superman in all aspects of life.
Tren can cause so many sides and makes you incredibly negative and aggressive too. In my book, it's not really worth it.
I also have to stress that aas takes time to work. They are hormones that signal dna transcription, which takes time to take effect in a quantifiable measure.
Anything you may feel from AAS within a few hours or days is directly related to estrogen, water, mineral, and glycogen retention.
