Anavar is the name used to market the world known anabolic agent made from Oxandrolone.
During the first few years on the market, Anavar was prescribed to treat various disorders of infertility, anemia, and other types of illness, such as Turner Syndrome.
It is currently one of the most popular steroids in the world of bodybuilding.
It is very consumed by athletes and bodybuilders and also by women, for being little toxic to the body.
In this article, we have prepared for you all the information about this anabolic, which is very popular in the gym and maybe you have already heard.
Precisely by burning fats quickly and providing greater burst strength for weight training, it is preferred by both men and women.
What is Oxandrolone / Anavar?
Oxandrolone, or Anavar is an anabolic steroid, created in 1964 and used until today by those who want to hatch the muscles quickly.
For you to know, its chemical formula is: [17b-hydroxy-17a-methyl-2-oxa-5a-androstane-3-one].
It is currently presented in chewable capsules or tablets and varied doses as 10, 20 or 30 mg.
Anavar is metabolized by the liver in the first and second passages.
Its effects are almost immediate after ingestion, and remain with lasting action in the body, unlike other anabolic agents
Oxandrolone is the anabolic of choice for those who want to show well defined muscles with little or no subcutaneous fat.
Provides energy for high impact anaerobic exercise and rapid increase in muscle density in response to weight activities.
What is Oxandrolone for?
Anavar or oxandrolone stands out when it comes to improving muscle performance and increasing athletic endurance.
This, because they increase muscle mass, through the elevation of muscle protein synthesis.
Another factor is to inhibit the loss or degradation of muscle fibers, and also accumulate phosphocreatine required for the production of ATP or energy for muscle contraction.
It has action on the metabolism of stored fats, mainly in the fat of the abdomen, subcutaneous tissue and fat around the viscera.
Producing that aspect of cropped muscles, or body sequinho.
It acts on the central nervous system, increasing the motivation and reduction of the subjective sensation of fatigue.
It is mainly used to improve the power of strength, favoring the lifting of weights in the more drawn phases of the physical conditioning.
It mainly acts on the abdominal straight and vast lateral muscles, defining that belly of tanquinho so dreamed.
Oxandrolone also acts on the musculature of the legs, femoral quadriceps, buttocks, and calf, which is the dream of every beginner “chicken”.
Precisely by reducing the subcutaneous fat, causes a effect of appearance younger, and therefore the Anavar is very wanted by the women also.
Its major action is due to the immediate release of muscle phosphocreatine and ATP, a few minutes after its ingestion, recommending that it be used just before the training
What are the benefits of using Oxandrolone?
The biggest benefit of Anavar is to expand almost immediately the supply of energy for strength training.
But other advantages are also perceived, among them:
- Adjusting the dosage is easy;
- Ingestion is oral, which removes the need for needles;
- Fast supply of energy, in the form of phosphocreatine and ATP, for weight training and bodybuilding;
- Visible fat reduction and abdominal circumference, by the rapid degradation of abdominal, visceral and subcutaneous fat with a “Fat-burner” effect;
- Increased motivation;
- Increased anaerobic resistance and potency;
- Reduced risk of aromatization when testosterone, the base of most steroids, converts to estrogen;
- Low water retention: Also unlike many other steroids, water retention caused by Anavar is much lower, with a lower risk of causing hypertension;
- Immediate force increase;
- Increased strength and endurance, not just the appearance of muscle mass. The developed muscle mass is more functional
What is Oxandrolone’s Role?
The anabolic in question works by increasing the supply of phosphocreatine and ATP to the muscles that work both strength and weight.
This makes the workout more productive with increased tolerance for more strength and more repetitions.
The effects on muscle energy are almost immediate and long-lasting, so you burn fat even in the intervals of training.
The shape changes offered by Anavar can be noticed as early as the first few weeks of use.
And, they remain enduring between cycles if a balanced feed is maintained.
Oxandrolone is absorbed rapidly in the digestive tract and excreted mainly by urine as metabolites and as unchanged drug.
What causes excess Oxandrolone?
Minimum doses of 50mg and maximals of 100mg per day for 4 to 6 weeks, and early in the training cycle are usual.
However, its use should never exceed these doses, and never for periods longer than 10 weeks, due to the high hepatotoxicity that oxandrolone possesses.
In addition, higher than recommended doses may not produce greater results over the ten-week period and may increase the risks amplify the side effects.
What are the side effects of Oxandrolone?
Anavar, being an anabolic steroid hormone, and which is derived from testosterone, can cause some unwanted effects, like several others we have already mentioned:
- Aromatization and Gynecomastia in men, although to a lesser degree than the other steroids;
- Loss of libido and alteration in ejaculation and infertility due to the decrease of viable spermatozoa;
- Hepatic dysfunction;
- Nausea, vomiting and lack of appetite;
- Acne, due to increased secretion of fats in the sebaceous glands;
- Alopecia, ie, accelerated hair loss;
- Inhibition of good cholesterol (HDL);
- Inhibition of natural testosterone, leading to erectile dysfunction, mood swings;
- Damage to the liver and kidneys due to the type of metabolism and excretion;
- In women it can cause increase in the volume of hair, thicker voice, dysfunction in the clitoris;
- Cardiac hypertrophy;
- Hyperhidrosis (increased sweating);
- Early consolidation of the bony epiphyses, and therefore not suitable for young people in the growth phase.
How to take Oxandrolone?
Anavar, as we always recommend, should be used under the guidance of a professional, due to the risks of its use.
But when it is recommended there are some tips for better use, with lower risks
It is recommended that it be used in conjunction with other anabolic agents and supplements, so that their effects will be lasting even after discontinuation of use.
Use just before the training period, for optimization of strength and endurance.
Alcohol should be avoided during its use so as not to potentiate its toxic effect.
Avoid using other oral or injectable drugs that are in some way metabolised by the liver (such as stanozolol).
For muscle mass definition and shape optimization, it is used in cycles
Because it is a long half-life drug (12 to 18 hours), it can be used up to ten weeks of the cycle, to do a detoxification period.
It is worth remembering that taking a blood test after 8 weeks of interruption is a good indicator if everything is ok.
Although it is an anabolic of the least toxic, oxandrolone should never be combined with other alpha-alkylated oral drugs.
Types of Oxandrolone cycles
A cycle of a hormonal medication means that you will take one or more specific substances over a certain interval of training.
- For men it is recommended 30 to 50 mg daily for a maximum of 10 weeks
- After this period, you should take a rest and you can use other non-steroidal supplements
- “Offsession”: that is, at the beginning of the training cycles, because your gains are very fast. In short periods, not exceeding 10 weeks;
- Short and Fast: The Oxandrolone cycle is usually a short and quick cycle, to cause fewer side effects.
TPC or Post Cycle Therapy, is treatment interval for cleansing the body.
The use of Anavar for more than 10 weeks facilitates the occurrence of serious changes in health, including psychiatric problems such as paranoia and depression. (We saw this on a reality show …)
Therefore, we must adhere to the recommended Oxandrolone cycle times!
Adapt them to you, along with a professional. Most recommended dosages if you are doing intercalated cycle, (one yes, other not):
- Men: 20-100mgs / day (or .125mg / kg);
- Women: 2.5-40mg / day;
- Half-Life: 8-12 hours
It is recommended to merge two or more drugs into the same cycle.
We remind you that our intention is to add to your knowledge, warning that your decision to consume anabolics should only be based on something solid and that can bring health benefits.
