NOTE: I have personally tested this product, and it works great for strenght.
Anavar (oxandrolone, oxanabol)
This is everyone’s favorite oral cutting anabolic steroid. It produces clean, high quality gains in strength, and a very distinct hardening effect on the physique of the user. Really, I have to say, I love this stuff, although I’ve only used it twice. The only downside is that it’s a very expensive chemical to produce and it doesn’t produce many side effects at all. its fairly mild on the natural hormonal system (for a steroid, that is). You’re going to gain some bodyweight from Anavar, not alot but what you do gain will be very nice looking muscle, great strenght, and little if any body weight gain in the way of water.
Unfortunately, it needs to be dosed rather highly if it’s being used alone. Even daily doses of up to 100mgs/ day won’t cause many side effects. (1) This makes it very popular, and I suspect we would barely see a cycle without it, if it were less expensive. For precontest bodybuilding preparation and athletes looking to remain in a particular weight class while still moving up in strength, Anavar is typically drug of choice. Despite the need for relatively high doses, it would seem that gains from Anavar hang around for awhile.
It’s used clinically for AIDS related wasting(1) and even in recovery routines for burn victims. thats right its that powerful! It’s often the only drug used precontest for female figure and fitness competitors due to little to no side effects, virilization is not much of a concern with it, as it is only very mildly androgenic, and highly anabolic. Men almost never report side
effects from it, and in women, the most commonly reported side effect is a temporarily enlarged clitoris.
that however goes away 6 months after you stop taking it.
Since it is an orally modified version of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), it has been modified in such a way to allow it to survive first pass metabolism through the liver. Despite this fact, it is very rare that liver toxic side effects are ever seen and/or reported. Also, since it is a derivative of DHT, it is
incapable of converting to estrogen, so users who may be sensitive to gynocomastia or water retention will not really have to worry about these problems.
With regards to its use in a pre contest phase or a cutting cycle, it has powerful effects on both abdominal and visceral fat reduction. This certainly makes it very useful for anyone interested in competing in bodybuilding,
staying in a specific weight class, or even just looking good for beach season. It’s certainly got a well deserved reputation for helping people achieve all of those goals.
It binds reasonably well to the AR, but pretty high doses are still needed and I would never suggest doing less than 20mgs/day.
It makes sense, when you think about it; people make a lot of weight gains on the highly water-retentive steroids (Dbol, A50, long estered testosteones … ), but lose the greatest percentage of their gains afterwards.
The same seems to be opposite for the steroids which cause less (or no) water retention (Anavar, Primo, Winstrol, & a few more).
Thus, Anavar may even be ideal for use in bridges between cycles, (at very low doses under 10mgs perhaps),or as previously mentioned, for cutting/strength cycles at 50-100mgs. Anavar doesnt aromatize (convert to estrogen). You can therefore go on a cycle for more than 12 weeks IF you have HCG to prevent excessive ball shrinkage so that you can recover good Test levels fast (with post cycle therapy alongside Clomid or nolva or another estrogen blocking agent; or even an aromataze inhibitor.
Without HCG ,do restrict the cycle to 12 weeks max.
