We take a look at Anavar (Oxandrolone) doses and discuss that safest route, whilst maximizing gains and limited negative side effects.
Anavar has received a bad reputation in the past as being regarded as an anabolic steroid that is “weak” or “only good for cutting cycles” that “requires high doses to see gains”. This is simply not true. With an anabolic rating of 322 – 630, Anavar can be quite an impressive anabolic steroid, even for building mass. The origins of these previous claims about Anavar’s weak strength probably comes from a great misunderstanding of Anavar itself, as well as the fact that Anavar does not put on as much total mass as other anabolic steroids that are deemed more as “bulking steroids”. Anavar is incapable of converting into Estrogen, and therefore the heavy weight gains that result from other “bulking steroids” will not be experienced from Anavar, which might lead individuals to think that they are not gaining as much mass from Anavar compared to something like Dianabol, when in fact they are probably gaining just as much lean mass without any water weight or potential fat gain/retention. All of this having been said, the Anavar dosages in general that is required to make gains is not supposed to be as high as many have been lead to believe. This might be one of the reasons as to why people might express more interest in trying to buy Anavar now more than ever.
The Anavar dosage can vary, depending on the needs, goals, and experience of the individual. Beginners seldom need a very high Anavar dosage. Intermediate users probably need to raise their Anavar dose a bit more than beginners, and advanced users’ Anavar doses can vary greatly depending on many factors. Those who buy Anavar often combine Anavar with other compounds (also known as stacking). These cases often require different Anavar doses compared to other methods of use. More details on stacking Anavar will follow under the Anavar cycle subtopic. In any case, a cycle that emphasizes the use of Anavar as a primary compound during a cutting phase might not require as high of an Anavar dosage as a cycle that stacks Anavar with other compounds in an attempt to gain lean mass (or bulk). Furthermore, the medical Anavar dosage initially set forth was that of 2.5 – 20mg per day, and patients would normally be instructed to use an Anavar dosage in the range of 10 – 15mg daily. In the 1990s when AIDS and HIV patients took interest in utilizing Anavar to promote and maintain a healthy weight, studies determined that an effective dose for those individuals was upwards of 20 – 80mg daily. As you can see, the Anavar dosage required can depend greatly on the reasons for use, the circumstances, and many other factors.
In the realm of athletics and bodybuilding, the typical Anavar dose can rise a bit higher than in the medical setting. Beginners will normally start off in and around an Anavar dosage of 30 – 50mg per day, depending on goals as well, of course. Var doses of 30 – 50mg daily can provide satisfactory gains and results for a beginner, and such a dose is also more than enough for those who buy Anavar for cutting and merely require it to stave off catabolism and preserve muscle during a caloric deficit. Intermediate users might increase their Anavar dosage into the brackets of 50 – 80mg per day, which is a dose normally required for more significant lean mass and strength gains. One can easily cut and lose fat on such an Anavar dose, but it might be considered overkill in the sense that the Anavar dose would be too high for the purpose of mere muscle mass preservation during a cut. Advanced Oxandrolone dosages can vary greatly, but some will be seen using 80 – 100mg per day. This is the type of Anavar dosage that will produce very significant strength and lean mass gains, especially when stacked and combined with other anabolic steroids.
For people who are trying to pack on large amounts of weight and mass at once, Var is probably not the product for them. However, those looking for lean mass gains without the intention of putting on water weight, they would likely be the ones to buy Var as a suitable choice. The Oxandrolone dosage required to put on the same amount of total weight as compared to something like Dianabol would, of course, be higher. However, considering the fact that Anavar eliminates the often undesirable water weight that bloats the individual, the weight gained from Anavar is almost exclusively 100% lean muscle mass. This is why Anavar in the past was perhaps perceived as being ‘mild’ or ‘weak’ in comparison to other compounds, because the amount of total weight that can be put on, milligram for milligram, required a much higher Anavar dosage than other compounds. With a greater understanding today of anabolic steroids (and especially Anavar), we know now that the quality of gains from any given Anavar dosage is what we are looking for.
