Many bodybuilders and athletes who want to speed up and enhance their results consider the use of anabolic steroids during a bulking or cutting cycle.  Such considerations must take into account the possible side effects, as well as the price and scientifically proven benefits.  Anavar is one of the most popular choices for both bulking and cutting.

Anavar is an oral anabolic steroid often considered to be one of the perfect types because of its side effects to benefits ratio and safety probability. It is also one of the few types of steroid considered fine as medication for children and females.

Anavar is actually the brand name for the generic Oxandralone anabolic steroid and is extremely popular with athletes and bodybuilders as well as the medical community. In terms of bodybuilding, Anavar cycles online are popular for use in bulking cycles as it is particularly potent for strength and mass gaining. Conversely, it can also be used as a cutting agent and assists in physique definition and fat loss.

Anavar is popular and favoured by athletes and bodybuilders wishing to increase muscle gain, strength gain and athletic performance while minimizing undesired additional water weight gain. Bodybuilders use it during a calorific deficit to assist in shedding body fat while maintaining as much muscle as possible.

Like most steroids, Anavar does have some side effects — in this case strain and toxicity to the liver area. Hence it is only used for the first 6-8 weeks of a bulk cycle. Cycles are shorter when it comes to fat loss and cutting. It may also affect those who are sensitive to androgenic side effects such as acne, oily skin, increased facial and body hair growth as well as benign prostatic hyperplasia and male pattern baldness.

On the plus side, Anavar doesn’t cause estrogenic side effects such as fat retention/gain, water retention, bloating and the onset of gynecomastia.

To improve performance, Anavar is mixed and matched with other steroids in a process called stacking.  The constitution of Anavar stacks will depend on the individual’s gender but are usually quite similar for both bulking and cutting cycles. A male Anavar stack will usually include an exogenous testosterone as anabolic steroids suppress natural testosterone production. However, other anabolics such as Trenbolone, Equipiose, Winstrol, Meastron and Primobolan can also be used. For females, an Anavar stack may include Primobolan, Winstrol, Clenbuterol and Cytomel.

Anavar is 3-6 times the anabolic strength of testosterone, despite often being wrongly seen as a mild steroid.  Male bodybuilders and athletes usually begin with dosages of 25-50mg per day, rising to 50-80mg per day. This is sufficient to be highly effective in both fat trimming up and bulking cycles. Females usually take a dosage of 5-10mg per day, rising to 20mg.

All of the above benefits and low side effects mean that Anavar is a very popular choice of anabolic steroid. However, they are also one of the most expensive to purchase. 60 pharmaceutical grade 10mg tablets can cost anything from $70-$150.

Overall, an Anavar stack for men should last about 6-8 weeks and around 6 weeks for women. Of course, it can be used for longer but it is usually wise to take a break. What is certain is that Anavar cycles and stacks are a very efficient choice if you don’t mind the relatively high cost per dosage.
