Over the years Anavar or oxandrolone as is also commonly known has been associated with athletes (both male and female) who are looking to have a lean body and maintain body mass during a cutting season.
Anavar is considered a mild steroid and it is this reason why it is favoured with most female body builders. A number of outstanding advantages have been realised over the years in a period spurning up to 30 years since it was first put to use to help patients gain weight after surgery, chronic infection, and prolonged corticosteroid use.
It is a known fact that female bodybuilders have more fat than their male counterparts. This is because the hormone Estrogen is more dominant in women than in men. Estrogen creates fat deposits around organs and just beneath the skin. This is why women are considered “softer” than men. Anavar for a woman is therefore used to improve muscle mass while melting away body fat.
Most women would consider dieting as opposed to the use of steroids, even though this would result in weight loss it will also affect her muscle mass. But Anavar has proved to preserve and even build it – all at the same time. for competitive female bodybuilders Anavar helps the current user retain good muscle performance while facilitating fat loss.
The main purpose of Anavar, when used by professional bodybuilders and weightlifters is trimming unwanted belly fat from the abdomen in the weeks preceding a tournament or competition.
It does not aromatize which means that there is no water retention that is associated with use. Even though Anavar has a tendency to cause hair loss the probability of this is rather low, and if it does occur in women, it usually happens towards the front of the scalp.
Anavar when used well, and responsibly will produce solid gains in muscle mass, definition, and tone that will be able to hold on to with continued training.
Anavar in women is known to have low side effects compared to other steroids if the correct dosages are applied. It is recommended that women should use doses of 5mg to 20 mg per day. Doses higher than this can cause virilization which is the most common effect in women.
Virilization can be defined as the development of male physical characteristics. Such characteristics include; developing a deep voice, body hair and the swelling of external sexual organs such as the clitoris.
As a precaution, Anavar should not be used with body builders who are considering to get pregnant or breast feeding.
It should also be noted that Anavar tablets are considered to be expensive but this will serve as an advantage to regulate the use of recommended dosage.
However, not all athletes can use Anavar. People who suffer from hypertension, heart problems or high cholesterol should avoid the use of Anavar. The myth and notion that Anavar can be used to lose weight without exercising should also be discouraged.
The best thing about Anavar is the effect that it has on women’s physique during a cutting cycle.
