In many ways, Oxandrolone is one of the most exciting anabolic steroids we can discuss. On its surface, it may not seem like much; after all, this is a relatively mild anabolic steroid and one that doesn't provide a lot of power compared to others. Even so, at the same time this is exactly what makes the Oxandrolone hormone so exciting, for its mild nature allows so many to supplement with it safely. Both men and women can supplement with Oxandrolone; in-fact, of all the anabolic steroids in-which women can use (there aren't many) Oxandrolone is without question the best one to choose. Of course, you may be asking what is this hormone; you may be unfamiliar with Oxandrolone and don't have a clue as to what we're talking about. Rest assured, you are very familiar with Oxandrolone; you know it best by its most popular trade name Anavar.
When it comes to taboo conversation, very few things are as controversial as anabolic steroids and female use. Anabolic steroids are notorious for plaguing women with masculine effects, and in many cases utterly destroying a woman's femininity. Such effects are known as virilization, and are what cause the deepening of the vocal chords, body-hair growth and a host of other unwanted effects. While virilization is a very real concern, women can supplement with anabolic steroids and safely so, putting virilization out of their mind. To supplement safely, one precaution to take is always supplementing with reasonable and responsible doses; if you take your doses too high nasty things will occur, but there is one more factor you absolutely must consider; the actual steroids you're supplementing with.
Of all the anabolic steroids on earth, and there are quite a few, there is not one that is more female friendly than Oxandrolone; in-fact, in many circles it is often referred to as "The Girl Steroid." Make no mistake, men can supplement with this steroid and with considerable success; it's simply far more beneficial to women. The virilization rate of this steroid is extremely low, and women who supplement responsibly will almost never run into problems. If for any reason a woman does run into problems, by simply discontinuing use immediately the problems will fade away; it's when they're ignored a permanent, damaging effect is risked.
As the safest anabolic steroid for female use, Oxandrolone can be used by female athletes in bulking and cutting cycles; although cutting cycles will be the most beneficial. This is a hormone that isn't well-suited for mass when used by men, it's simply too weak, but women are far more sensitive and a little will go a long way. Even so, it is the dieting phase where all athletes will find this steroid to be the most beneficial, as it will preserve lean tissue often lost when calories are restricted, enhance the physique, provide a dryer, tighter and harder look and simply a more pleasing total package.
For most women, a dosing of 10mg per day is all that is needed and will provide all she could be looking for. Some women will choose to go as high as 20mg per day, and it's a crapshoot regarding the toleration of such a dose, but we guarantee doses above this amount will produce virilization. In any case, if you've never supplemented before you'll want to stick with 10mg every day, and if you want more the next time perhaps you can try 15mg. In any case, we can tell you with assurance almost no woman will ever actually need more than 10mg per day for more than 6-8 weeks. Further, you should wait at least 4 weeks before supplementing with Oxandrolone again after a 6-8 week course, with a minimal 6 week break being far more optimal.
With literally hundreds of anabolic steroids to choose from, of all the forms, when it comes to male supplementation Anavar is in many cases a form we view as a supplement to male supplemental anabolic steroid use. Simply put, this is not a foundational steroid to build a cycle around. For the female athlete, she may very well supplement with Oxandrolone and Oxandrolone alone, but for the male athlete, this is often not efficient. In most cases, the majority of men add this steroid in on top of an already well-founded plan in-order to enhance such a plan.
A poor steroid for mass; in-fact, we can tell you with confidence Oxandrolone will do little to nothing regarding off-season bulking gains and male use. As a steroid that does not aromatize, any weight gained due to use would be pure lean tissue, but it will take an enormous amount to achieve a significant, true gain. Further, as this is a rather expensive steroid, the cost to benefit ratio is not in your favor for off-season use. Where Oxandrolone truly shines regarding male performance enhancement is during the cutting phase; especially when coupled with other hardening steroids.
In any case, most men will find they need at a minimum 50mg of Oxandrolone per day, with many men going up to 80mg per day. 100mg per day can be used, but you're talking about a lot of money and results that won't produce much more than 80mg per day. Some athletes who are supplementing for a slight boost in athletic performance may only supplement with 30mg per day; yes, Oxandrolone can be used successfully for this purpose. At any rate, again, this is an expensive steroid, not so much for women as they need remarkably little, but a man is going to pay. Generally 10mg tablets cost $1 per tablet from some UG labs to $2 a tablet, and as high as $3-$4 from a Human Grade label.
