Anavar Questions and Answers
Myth (1) – Anavar will not cause HPTA inhibition.
False. Anavar used in even low doses will cause some sort of inhibition to the HPTA and endogenous Testosterone production. The amount of testosterone suppression will depend on various factors, such as age, gender, dose, duration and previous steroid experience.
Myth (2) – Anavar is a weak anabolic steroid and needs to be combined with others and not used alone.
This is incorrect. Even in low doses of 40mg/ED, Anavar will add LBM to the frame. Increased vascularity, hardness and strength gains should be evident if your Oxandrolone is legit after around 7-10 days and came from a trusted supplier.
If used alone, gains of 10-12lbs are attainable when combined with a diet rich in protein and consistent weight training program and cardio regime. Gains will be kept taking into account Post Cycle Therapy, nutrition and genetics mainly.
Myth (3) – Anavar will not require PCT.
This could not be further from the truth and is nonsense. We have already established that Anavar can inhibit the bodies own testosterone production, so that warrants the use of PCT and PCT compounds being used, mainly Nolvadex and Clomid. That said, PCT is not extensive and high dosed as in most cases Anavar will not cause prolonged shutdown in the user, but still should be used.
Although Anavar is a DHT derived anabolic steroid, where, in most cases, this will cause an increase in libido, when used alone this may not be the case. Oxandrolone will supress endogenous testosterone production, so it may impact the users sex drive negatively. If this occurs, what are the options?
- #1 – Tribulus at 1-3g/ED. However, using effective dosages is going to end up being as or more expensive than options 2/3, but its your choice.
- #2 – Long Jack or Lj100 – 200-400mg/ED. This herb is one of the few to actually enhance total testosterone in large doses in animals. It will no doubt improve libido in humans when taken at this dosage consistently.
- #3 – Proviron – This has the ability to increase sex drive and has even been trailed and given to hormone replacement patients in place of testosterone shots/creams/gels/pads. 25-50mg/ED will suffice, but again, this option is expensive.
- #4 – Testosterone – This can be a short or long acting preparation. Injectable or oral Andriol. As long as a larger or replacement dosage of testosterone is administered to counteract the inhibitive effects of Anavar.
- #1 – Vascularity
Oxandrolone will cause vasodilation when seditory and training. Expect web like forearms and bulging biceps with Anavar. This will take effect at around 7-10 days, but may be sooner in some
- #2 – Strength
Anavar will aid in burning unwanted fat by increasing lipolysis and increasing fat oxidation. Expect an enhanced rate of fat loss when using Oxandrolone and even better when combined with a deficit of calories and cardio training regime.
- #3 – Pumps
You will notice this when training in the gym during your first couple of weeks. This is arguably the first effect you will feel from taking Anavar. Expect to cut sets short due to pumps and sometimes painful forearms and lower back cramps. Taurine will aid in reducing this.
- #4 – Fat Loss
Anavar will help reduce fat mass whilst providing an anabolic effect increasing lean body mass (LBM). Not many steroids can burn fat the same power Anavar can so its an excellent addition to a cutting cycle. It will help reduce both subcutaneous and visceral fat in the abdomen and thigh area making it a perfect cutting agent.
Anavar should be started on at a dose of around 40mg/ED. Once the user has a feel for how their body has responded to Anavar, they can increase the dose and alter it comparing gains/sides. It should be run no longer than 8-10 weeks without a break or blood tests conducted to see how their body has responded to this drug.
Anavar is a 17-alpha-alkylated anabolic steroid. This means it will exert some sort of toxic effect on the liver where it is metabolised for use by the body. Although Anavar is loess toxic than other steroids, namely Dianabol and Winstrol, its use should be limited because of it. Anavar was actually given to recovering alcoholics to gain lean body mass and its fairly obvious these group of individuals are more sensitive to the toxic effects of drugs on their livers.
Compounds that will aid in liver regeneration are, Milk Thistle, NAC, Vitamin C/E, Liv 52, whilst drinking a lot of water throughout the day.
Anavar is notoriously bas on the lipid profile of users, more so than other anabolic steroids in fact. LDL can increase and HDL can lower, which is both the opposite ways you want each to go. Optimally, you want a balance of both with a good ratio, but this is fairly hard to obtain. Supplements and drugs that will help you are:
- Omega 3 caps
- Red Yeast Rice
- Coconut Oil
- Fish (wild caught salmon)
- Coconut milk
