Anavar, on the same list of best steroids for muscle growth and strength. Probably the best steroid after Winstrol. Utilized by a lot of bodybuilders and professional powerlifters. Legal Anavar alternative, safe without any of the bad side effects of Anavar. Also, 100% legal and contains no banned substances.
Oxanivar- Legal Anavar Alternative
History of Oxandrolone-Anavar
Unlike most oral steroids, which are Class II steroids giving most of their anabolic effect by means other than the androgen receptor (AR), it seems that oxandrolone probably does have good binding to the AR, and therefore a Class I steroid, while having little other effect. By itself, considered a weak anabolic.
Partly due to its apparent lack of non-AR-mediated activity. Corrected of course by stacking with a Class II steroid such as Dianabol, Anadrol®, 4-AD, or nor-4-AD: the latter two steroids require high blood levels which are not obtained by oral use of the powders.
The other part of the reason, that bodybuilders make unfortunate and unreasonable comparisons when judging anabolic steroids. If say 8 tablets per day does little, then the drug pronounced useless or weak by the user. Only 20 mg/day, or 140 mg/week. Does 140 mg/week testosterone give much results? No. Few anabolic steroids give dramatic results at that dose. Per milligram the potency, reasonable, but each individual tablet, weak at a small dose.
High Price for Gains
Because of its high price, very few bodybuilders have taken large doses of oxandrolone. Single case in the medical literature (Forbes et al.) where reported that a competitive athlete self-administered 150 mg oxandrolone per day with remarkable gains. Uncertain credibility because unless urinalysis was done to verify that no other steroids were taken, no way to check if athlete did not actually take more drugs than he reported. In any case, at current prices, only the quite wealthy could afford such a dose. I personally have tried 150 mg/day and considered it somewhat effective, but not dramatically so, and not a preferred regimen.
Oxandrolone does not aromatize or convert to DHT, and has a longer half life than Dianabol – 8 hours vs. 4 hours. Thus, a moderate dose taken in the morning is largely out of the system by night, yet supplies reasonable levels of androgen during the day and early evening.
