ANAVAR CYCLE GUIDE FOR BEST RESULTS
In this post we will show you how to properly do an Anavar cycle. As Anavar can be used both for bulking and cutting, we shall talk about both.
Anavar (Oxandrolone) is one of the most popular oral steroids today, mainly because of being well tolerated by men and women. Its extraordinary effects have been proven countless times, being used by professional bodybuilders and athletes who compete in various sports disciplines.
The characteristics of Anavar are:
- Excellent for fat loss
- Prevents catabolism and preserves muscle
- Adds lean muscle mass
- Increases strength
- No estrogenic activity
- Very low androgenic activity
- No water retention
- Safe for women
Anavar comes in various dosed tablets, ranging between 5mg-50mg. Half-life of Anavar is around 6-9 hours, so the plan is to take about two to four evenly spaced doses throughout the day. This will ensure a stable concentration of Anavar in your body. Anavar cycles last for 4-8 weeks, for both men and women, where some men even do a 12 week cycle, usually professional bodybuilding competitors.
Anavar cycle for bulking
Anavar oxandrolone isn’t your standard muscle gaining steroid, because it’s not its main trait. Nonetheless it helps in creating lean muscle mass, and Anavar gains are easier to hold onto. Most male users won’t be satisfied with off season bulking results if doing a solo Anavar Cycle. But on the other hand female users will benefit the effects of Anavar, especially because most women aren’t looking for massive gains. Aside from its weaker muscle gaining effects, it’s known that Anavar can give amazing strength gains, which is especially needed when dieting, due to the loss of strength when being on a caloric deficit.
Here is an example of high dosage Anavar only cycle for men:
And here is for women:
Another two weeks can be added, but the longer the cycle, the higher the risk of side effects.
Anavar cycle for cutting
Without question Anavar is one of the best cutting steroids. It’s been proven countless times that Anavar promotes and accelerates fat loss, especially doing a good job when it comes to that stubborn belly and thigh fat. Most of anabolic steroids used for fat loss will enhance the metabolic rate of the body, which will promote fat loss, but Anavar directly promotes lipolysis. Aside to its magnificent fat burning effects, Anavar also promotes preservations of lean muscle tissue and strength which is often lost on diets. When it comes to cutting cycles, doses are a bit lower than bulking:
For men, and for women:
Anavar cycles for men usually last for 8 weeks, where women will generally cycle Anavar for 6-8 weeks. After a cycle is finished, a break is needed from all types of C17-aa steroids, until liver enzyme values are normalized.
When it comes to dosage men usually take from 10mg-100mg, and women range from 2.5mg-20mg. There have been reports of even higher dosages for both men and women, but this would drastically increase the risk of side effects, especially for women.
The best way to use Anavar is to start with lower dosages, and to increase over the course of 8 weeks, where men should be starting with 20mg per day, and women from 2.5mg per day.
How To Stack Anavar
Anavar is best used in a stack, due to its minimal androgenic and estrogenic side effects. For men Anavar is best used for cutting, and in most cases is mostly stacked with Testosterone, as Testosterone is the base of most cycles for men, being the most versatile and efficient hormone. Some other steroids that go well with Anavar:
Here is a classic stack of Anavar and Testosterone Enanthate:
|Week 1-8 Anavar||30-50 mg/day|
|Week 1-10 Testosterone Enanthate||300-500mg/day|
In this cycle Anavar dose is a bit lower than usual, because of the addition of Testosterone. Also its very important to understand because Testosterone is run at higher dose, the chances for water retention are through Estrogen conversion are much higher, which may result in a puffy looking physique. This should be a cycle best suited for adding lean mass and/or bulking. So before doing a stack with some other steroids, first think about what you want to achieve, and then use the right kind of steroid alongside Anavar for best results.
While for women stacking Anavar can be very benefitial at any time, for any cycle, bulking or cutting. Generally women who are using Anavar for the first time should not do a stack cycle, ensuring it will be well tolerated by the body. For advanced female users these steroids go well with Anavar:
Here you can see a typical cutting stack cycle, using Anavar and Clenbuterol:
|Week 1||Anavar 10mg/day + Clenbuterol 20mcg/day|
|Week 2-3||Anavar 10mg/day + Clenbuterol 40mcg/day|
|Week 4-6||Anavar 10mg/day + Clenbuterol 60mcg/day|
|Week 7-8||Anavar 10mg/day + Clenbuterol 80mcg/day|
Despite being one of the safest anabolic steroids today, Anavar can still cause some problems in your body, mainly because Anavar is a hormone. Only time when you don’t need a PCT after an Anavar cycle is when cycles last less than 4 weeks and with low doses.
Regardless of the anabolic steroid you use, PCT should be a necessity. And when it comes to Anavar it all depends if you are doing an Anavar only cycle, or are you stacking with some other steroids.
Generally the two most used PCT products for Anavar cycles are Clomid and Nolvadex. They are to be used for 4 weeks and with lower doses than usual.
When it comes to women and steroids, PCT isn’t used so often as with men. That is mainly because women have really low testosterone levels. When Anavar is used by women it all depends on the doses and their own hormone levels before and during a cycle. Most women don’t experience side effects while using Anavar, but some women experience some side effects mainly because they stopped using steroids after a long cycle (8-12 weeks). This is because Anavar is a hormone, and any kind of hormone fluctuation in a females body can cause unwanted problems.
There is a way to avoid most of the side effects with a tapering dose at the end of the cycle. This basically means to lower the doses for the last 2-3 weeks. This is especially good and successful when it comes to long cycles, and high doses of steroids.
Being used solo or in a stack, Anavar will definitely give you the desired results. All steroids come with pros and cons, but when it comes to Anavar, you can easily say that there are no cons. Its popularity and wide range of usage speak for itself.
