The Truth About Anavar – Everything You Need To Know From A Real User

Anavar Review
Between you and me: I’ve always found bulking easy. Eat what you want and lift weights. What’s hard about that? But when it comes to burning fat it can feel like trying to seperate a pitbull from a tennis ball. Once it latches on it doesn’t want to let go. So it’s no surprise that more and more people are turning to things like Anavar to burn fat and get in shape. Anavar will help you gain strength and muscle without gaining a lot of mass and you’ll burn fat and get shredded too. I’ve used it a bunch of times and it used to be one of my favorites.
Update: I no longer use Anavar. I’ve found a better way to burn fat, gain strength and get in shape without the side effects and without the need for a PCT. I wrote the system down in a short PDF which you can [su_highlight]read here[/su_highlight]. (no email required)
In the rest of this post I’m going to tell you everything you need to know about Anavar:

What Is Anavar? In A Nutshell..

First a little history lesson: It may surprise you to learn that Anavar was a brand name for an *AAS that came out in 1962 by a company called G.D Searle and co. (*AAS means Anabolic Androgenic Steroid by the way.) They created it for people who had been in an accident or were-bed bound to prevent muscle loss. Sitting around in a hospital bed for a year can cause a lot of muscle loss ya know. It wasn’t long before bodybuilders began using it to preserve muscle during a cut. And because it increases anabolism it also helped them get stronger. As well as boosted physical performance. (We’ll get to the benefits in a minute.) In the 1980’s the FDA cracked down on steroids and G.D Searle and Co took Anavar off the market in 1989. So ‘Anavar’ doesn’t actually exist anymore. When people talk about Anavar they actually mean Oxandrolone. Oxandrolone is it’s chemical name. 6 years later: In 1995 a company called Biotechnology General Corp popped up. They released their own Oxandrolone product called Oxandrin. Because BGC were now the only makers of Oxandrolone the price went skyhigh as they held the monopoly. Now there are several other companies that make legitimate Oxandrolone including Actavis. But still the prices remain high and Oxandrolone is one of the most expensive steroids you can buy. This is why many choose to buy their Anavar from UGLs (underground labs). Legality: In most countries Anavar or Oxandrolone is illegal to buy or sell without a prescription.

Is Anavar Safe? I’m Too Young To Die!

Anabolic Rating Androgenic Rating
320-630 24
You’ll read on forums that Anavar is safe and it doesn’t cause side effects like baldness or acne. Which is true. It only has an ‘Androgenic Rating’ of 24 which means there’s less chance of acne, baldness or gyno. Anavar is considered one of the safer steroids. And on the plus side you don’t need to inject yourself. But on the negative side it can be very taxing on your liver. So although it seems safer because there’s less chance of physical side effects.. ..It’s still a powerful drug and something you need to be careful with. I’ll explain more about the side effects of Anavar in a minute..

Does Anavar Help You Build Muscle?

Yes and no. Let me explain: Believe it or not Anavar is 3-6 times more powerful than testosterone So you would think that it would help you build a lot of muscle right? Well, although it can help you build muscle it’s known to be quite slow in that regard. Anavar is better used for cutting cycles to burn fat and keep your hard earned muscle. Here’s a good video about Anavar. Worth a watch..

What Does Anavar Actually Do? The Benefits..

[su_highlight]Anavar is a performance enhancer and is detectable in your blood for up to 3 weeks.[/su_highlight] Here’s what Anavar can do for you: [su_highlight]Improve Your Performance:[/su_highlight] Anavar helps carry more oxygen to your muscles. It does this by increasing your red blood cell count. This means you can workout for longer and with more intensity. [su_highlight]Recover Faster:[/su_highlight] Anavar increase anabolism which speeds up protein synthesis. This means that your muscles will repair faster and you won’t have to wait as long to work out again. [su_highlight]Gain Strength Without Mass:[/su_highlight] Anavar is different to other anabolic steroids because it helps you build strength without mass. It does this by forcing your muscles to contract more while you’re working out. This helps strengthen the smaller muscle fibers that don’t usually get worked on. This helps you to get stronger than ever without looking like you’re on the juice. Imagine being a runner and strengthening your legs without them getting bigger. You’ll be able to outrun the competition without them knowing why. [su_highlight]Burn Fat Faster:[/su_highlight] Anavar also speeds up your metabolism. So you burn calories and fat faster. Because it also preserves muscle you’ll get lean and shredded twice as fast with no muscle loss.

Anavar For Women?

Anavar is one of the most popular steroids among female bodybuilders. Why is that? Because it has a low androgenic rating and it isn’t aromatizing. The higher the androgenic rating the higher the chance of virilization. Virilization is when females begin to take on male characteristics. I.e: A deeper voice, stronger jaw bone and even chest hair growth. The chances of this happening with Anavar is low but it is still possible. Most females will use 5-10mg of Oxandrolone per day for 4-5 weeks. Some women do fine on 20mg per day but this increases the risk of side effects.

What Will Anavar Do For Women?

If you’re a women then it’ll do pretty much the same for you as it would a man. You’ll get stronger and more toned without packing on a lot of muscle. If you use it on a cut then you’ll get shredded too.

Anavar For Athletes

Anavar is the most popular AAS among athletes. It helps to increase endurance, performance and strength without building mass. It’s also only detectable in the blood for up to 3 weeks. That’s pretty short when you consider that some steroids are detectable for up to 18 months.

How To Use Anavar For Best Results

A normal cycle will last 6 weeks. Anavar is bad for your liver so using it for longer than this isn’t recommended. Some users will go up to 8 weeks if they tolerate it well. [/fusion_text][fusion_table]
Goal Anavar Dose
Athletic Performance 10mg-30mg/day
Cutting 20mg-80mg/day
Bulking 40mg-100mg/day
[/fusion_table][fusion_text] You should never exeed 100mg. And most users don’t use Anavar on a bulk. Price: Anavar is one of the most expensive anabolic steroids on the market. 60 tablets of 10mg can cost up to $150. If you’re taking 60mg per day that $150 will only last 10 days so just a 4 week cycle can cost more than $450. Half Life: Anavar has a half life of just 9 hours so you need to take it a least twice per day to keep your blood levels stable. Counterfeit Warning: Because of its high price and profitability Anavar/Oxandrolone is one of the most faked steroids online.

Anavar Only Cycles

One of the biggest dividers when it comes to Anavar is: Should you use it on it’s own or with testosterone. I have only ever used Anavar on it’s own. I have never stacked it when I’ve been on it. If you’re bulking using Anavar then you may want to add in some test. But if your goal is to burn fat, improve performance and look better then Anavar on it’s own is fine. Whether you use it on it’s own or stack it with testosterone you will probably need a PCT (post cycle therapy).

Anavar Post Cycle Therapy

Unfortunately as with all anabolic steroids your natural testosterone production will go down if you use Anavar. Some studies show that Var will reduce natural test production by 40%! With such a huge drop in test production you can expect to;
  • Lose muscle mass.
  • Gain fat
  • Gyno
  • Fatigue
And all the other negative side effects that come with low testosterone. So a PCT is necessary because it’ll help get your testosterone levels back to normal. If you use Anavar and skip the PCT it can take years for your testosterone levels to return to normal. Most guys use a PCT stack containing Clomid and Nolvadex. Here is a PCT for you to follow: [fusion_table]
Day Clomid Nolvadex
1 150mg 60mg
2-10 100mg 40mg
11-21 50mg 20mg
22-28 none 20mg

The Side Effects Of Anavar

Although Anavar is one of the more milder and safer steroids..’s still a powerful drug. So if you dod decide to use it and you start to notice the side effects below then back off! Click the tabs below to expand.. [/fusion_text][fusion_tabs design=”classic” layout=”vertical” justified=”yes” backgroundcolor=”” inactivecolor=”” bordercolor=”” icon=”fa-check” icon_position=”left” icon_size=”” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=””][fusion_tab title=”Hepatoxicity” icon=””] If you have liver issues then you must not take Anavar. There are conflicting reports about this steroid when it comes to the damage it may cause on your liver. At the doses doctors prescribe it’s probably safe but you have to remember that it’s also a C-17aa which means that it’s difficult for your liver to breakdown. This means that your liver has to go into overdrive to release enough enzymes to be able to break it down. When you remember that you need to take Anavar at least twice per day it’s easy to see how damaging this can be for your liver. [/fusion_tab][fusion_tab title=”Testosterone Suppression” icon=””] As with all anabolic steroids Anavar can suppress your natural testosterone production by as much as 40%. This can lead to lethargy, fatigue, muscle loss, fat gain and all kinds of other issues. A lot of people combine Anavar with exogenous testosterone. Although many use Anavar on it’s own. Because of this shutdown in testosterone a PCT (post cycle therapy) is essential. [/fusion_tab][fusion_tab title=”Cholesterol Problems” icon=””] This is serious.. Anavar suppresses good cholesterol and raises bad cholesterol levels. Before using it you should get your cholesterol levels checked to make sure that you don’t already have high levels of bad cholesterol. High levels of bad cholesterol can lead to strokes and even heart attacks. [/fusion_tab][fusion_tab title=”Hair Loss and Acne” icon=””] The risk of this happening is very low. [/fusion_tabs][fusion_text] To learn more about the possible side effects of Anavar take a read of this.

Should You Use Anavar?

Anavar does work but I don’t recommend it. You’re going to need a PCT which means you’re going to need to get your hands on Clomid and Nolvadex too. And you’re also going to have to risk the side effects. In my opinion using Var should be a last resort kind of thing. So before you go using Anavar give this system a try first. It won’t cost you a lot of money. And there won’t be any negative side effects. It’ll only take a minute to [su_highlight background=”#d4fc84″]read this free pdf[/su_highlight] and you’ll discover how you can burn fat and get in shape so fast you’ll have people trying to pay you to learn your secrets.

    1. How Come? All articles say it does but even my friend who is a microbiologist said it doesn’t require PCT. Milk Thistle is fine.

      1. Hey Chris. Good question. I’ve seen a few people use Anavar and not use a PCT. 1 of them was completely fine. 1 of them had to go on TRT because their testosterone levels tanked and the other one’s body and health went to sh*t. I think he’s ok now though as that was a few years ago.

        It’s risky using Anavar anyway but if you are going to use it then I would say it’s better to be safe than sorry and just use the PCT. let us know how it goes.
