Anavar is one of those steroids that both beginners and experienced bodybuilders are looking for. With a high price, real myths have been created around it – about its effectiveness and its lack of side effects. Although it is a very good steroid, it is not the supreme steroid, as it is sometimes presented. Moreover, it is a steroid that has its results falsified very often.
Anavar is a steroid derived from dihydrotestosterone. It was designed to have a clear separation between anabolic and androgenic effects and without estrogenic effects. Anavar is known for promoting quality muscle mass gains, and strength, with no notable side effects. Milligram per milligram it is 6 times more anabolic than testosterone itself, without the androgenic effects associated with the latter. But muscle mass gains are not impressive at all, compared to testosterone. It is the preferred steroid for those who will strike, its anabolic effects being useful during weight loss treatments. It has been found that oxandrolone at reasonable doses has no major side effect. This is also due to the fact that it was initially designed for women and children.
Many bodybuilders and athletes are disappointed by Anavar, saying they do not have big anabolic effects, but these users probably have too many expectations. Not all steroids are as strong and Anavar may be beneficial from other points of view.
The administration is preferable to be done on an empty stomach; doses are between 15-30 mg per day, especially for improving sports performance, but much better results are obtained at doses of 50-60mg / day, especially if it is desired to define or slightly increase muscle mass. Some athletes use 80 mg/day or more, but they also increase significantly the risk of side effects and toxic liver load. It can also be combined with 200-400 mg of testosterone when muscle mass builds up. For definition, it can be combined with 150 mg per week of trenbolone or 300-400 mg per week of Primobolan.
In sports, doses range from 5-10 mg/day, in cycles of 6-8 weeks. And this would be the most recommended schedule for taking Anavar.
Anavar was invented in the 1960s. It is currently marketed by the Savient Pharmaceutical Company, but there are several other companies producing generic oxandrolone, such as Watson Laboratories Inc. As a matter of fact, no pharmaceutical company in the world any longer carries oxandrolone under the name of Anavar. All products named Anavar are produced by underground companies.
