Anavar (Oxandrolone) is the hottest steroid on the market right now, so naturally I get a lot of questions about it.
Oxandrolone was first introduced for medical use in 1964 but was not that popular in bodybuilding due to its low availability and high cost, but more recently it's become readily available and has dropped in price a good bit. Anavar used to sell for $1 – $2 for a 5 mg tab, but now you can find it for about half that cost, and often times they're available in 10 mg, 20 mg, and even 50 mg tabs.
What does Anavar do?
Anavar promotes muscle growth and with good discipline and legit Anavar, one can do an awful lot of changing in a couple short months.
I've always found any oral to work better in smaller dosages throughout the day rather than just 1 large dosage once per day.
Some of the larger mg tabs such as the 50 mg tabs are actually a pain in the ass to me, because I need to cut them up. I've tried “pulse cycling” before (only running orals on training days in larger amounts), taking 1 large dose an hour before I train, and I never get as strong doing it that way.
A small and steady dosage throughout the day is what gives me the better results, and that is with any oral compound!
What is the difference between Anavar and Oxandrolone?
Anavar is a branded name while Oxandrolone is the generic name. While not quite the same, perhaps think “Kleenex” rather than “facial tissue”. Kleenex is a branded facial tissue but not all facial tissues are Kleenex but in the US common vernacular people often use the brand interchangeably just like they might say Q-tip instead of cotton swab. This is the same deal. Oxandrolone was introduced in the US market as Anavar as has thus become commonly referred to as such despite the Anavar brand being discontinued and replaced by “Oxandrin” and multiple other branded versions of Oxandrolone being sold in other world markets.
Can females use Anavar?
Females love Anavar, I saw a girl transform her body off 10 mg/day of Anavar for 6 weeks. This girl lost about 20 lbs, was tight, and just looked amazing from 10 mg/day of Anavar. No side effects, no enlarged clit, no voice issues, nothing! Just a nice look and tight muscles.
Anavar dosage for females
For females 10 mg/day is all that is needed.
Anavar side effects for females
As with many anabolic steroids there is the risk of developing masculine characteristics such as deeper voice, clitoral enlargement, etc. However due to Anavar's low androgenic effects and low dosages required for results in women a properly monitored regimen is low in risk and heavy in rewards making it a favorite amongst women.
Women who like Anavar be sure to check out Ostarine which is a lot like Anavar in terms of results. See Ostarine for Women? YES!
Is Anavar safe to use for guys?
It is generally regarded as safe to use for males. As with any Schedule III controlled substance in the US it would be prescribed by a doctor who would presumably be aware of any medical conditions or other medications being taken that would increase risks of side effects.
Anavar dosage for males
For males I'd say 30 mg/day is the starting point, but the real results start happening around 60 mg/day. It's really no different than any other steroid in terms of mg's to results. Think about it, 60 mg/day x 7 days/week is 420 mg/week total. It's no different than 200 mg/week of Test vs 600 mg/wk, the more total mg's yields more results (to a point).
Anavar side effects for males
Side effects may include acne, increased hair growth, voice changes, and increased sexual desire.
Anavar cycle and stack
Anavar stacks well with almost anything, but I've found it to be better with dieting. The beauty of it besides giving me a hard and defined look, is it helps me stay stronger on a caloric restriction.
It's also one of the few steroids that I'd say would be OK to run solo. If a guy is looking to cut up a little more, but nothing dramatic, then Anavar is a solid choice! 6-8 weeks before spring break or a cruise would be a good time to start a low calorie diet along with some Anavar.
