In the modern era of fitness (and the 21st century is what they call the age of fitness and beauty) and wellness, when appearance is at the forefront, many, many people are striving to fit themselves to new standards. Of course, a sporty figure, a sculpted and inflated body adorns both men and women. Girls, by the way, no longer lag behind men, storming gyms and doing non-female sports at first glance.
This also applies to sports nutrition and pharmacology. This is due to the fact that women have completely taken root in the world of iron sports and actively take part in bodybuilding and fitness competitions. And in order to effectively enter the stage and adequately withstand competition among rivals, you need to bring your body to the ideal parameters that dictate the rules of the competition. That is why many girls turn to additional drugs for help, which allow them to achieve much better results than if they were preparing without them.
What should be pharmacological preparations for women
As you know, many sports pharmacological drugs (otherwise – steroids), in addition to their main effects, also have side effects. And the task of the girls is to choose the drug that will have a minimum of negative consequences, and preferably without them at all.
Steroids for women should:
- Do not have an androgenic effect (excessive hair growth, coarsening of the voice, muscle hypertrophy);
- Take into account the peculiarities of the metabolism of the female body;
- Do not lower natural estrogen levels.
Especially for women, preparations have been developed that take these requirements into account as much as possible. Such a popular remedy as Oxandrolone also belongs to them.
What is Oxandrolone
Also known under slang names (Oksana, oks, Oksan), the drug has different trade names: Anavar, Oksandrin, etc. This is a steroid that was first released under the name Anavar in 1964 in America. It is a highly effective heterocyclic steroid agent with a reduced androgenic effect, while at the same time not losing its anabolic level (i.e., the ability to qualitatively influence anabolism).
Known as an excellent immunomodulator, successfully used for the maintenance treatment of HIV-infected patients, as well as people with other diseases: tuberculosis, anemia, diabetes.
Produced in the form of tablets containing 10 mg of the active substance (oxandrolone) and other excipients. The standard package usually comes with 60 tablets.
Due to the low androgenic effect, Anavar is often used in training courses for women.
This drug affects the lady in this way:
- Increased relief and hardness of muscles;
- Fat burning;
- Increase in the level of somatotropin;
- Strength increase.
Since the main purpose and effect of the drug is to increase the relief, it makes no sense to use it in order to build muscle. Anavar is usually prescribed to women who already have enough muscle and a normal amount of subcutaneous fat to bring the body into the desired shape (by relief, dryness, amount of water, etc.) during the course of taking it.
Impact on fat burning
The great news is the conclusion of experts that fat cells destroyed under the influence of Oxandrolone do not return when the drug is discontinued. The study involved a group of men and women who were under the supervision of scientists for three months.
The results showed:
- Reducing the amount of adipose tissue by an average of 25% in men and 20% in women;
- An increase in the amount of muscle mass (but, unfortunately, this effect did not persist with the abolition of the steroid);
- The main areas of the body that have lost excess fat are the abdomen, hips and legs in general;
The most striking results were recorded during the first month of admission, from which it was concluded that the drug should be taken for a short time (6-8 weeks).
How to use
Since the drug has proven itself as a female steroid (which, moreover, even children can take), the correct dosages of Anavar have been compiled, leading to greater effectiveness.
Anavar course for girls:
- The drug is usually taken alone.
- Depending on the initial state of the body, the dosage for ladies is from 10 to 20 mg.
- The dosage of the drug should be divided into two doses, that is, taken in the morning and in the evening.
- In the absence of side effects, the duration of the course is 6-8 weeks.
- The action of the drug is 8-12 hours.
- Complete elimination of the substance from the body occurs at least 45 days after the end of the course.
- In any case, before taking Oxandrolone, you should consult with a sports doctor or endocrinologist.
- For greater effectiveness, the steroid is combined with sports nutrition intended for drying (carnitine, protein, BCAAs), and they also follow a diet.
That is, if you are prescribed to take Oxandrolone 10 mg, this means that you should drink one tablet during the day. If this is done in two stages, then the tablet must be divided in half.
Like any synthetic (and even natural) remedy, Anavar has its own, albeit few, but still side effects.
But what is worth noting is the absence of Oksana’s negative effect on the liver. Although Oxandrolone comes in the form of tablets, which are usually “filtered” through the liver, it does not have a serious toxic effect on this organ.
As for the rest, the negative consequences of taking Anavar by women are as follows:
- Decreased appetite;
- Disorder of the digestive tract;
- The appearance of pain in the abdomen;
But since the steroid is considered one of the safest, its side effects are extremely rare and in special cases (when taken incorrectly, overdose).
Very rarely, if a girl takes at least 5-6 tablets per day, there will be manifestations of a cumulative androgenic effect:
- coarsening of the voice;
- Hair loss;
- Violation of the menstrual cycle;
- Hypertension of the clitoris.
But these are rather special cases, since it is not so difficult to find the necessary information on how to correctly use this steroid.
If you have been involved in iron sports for a long time, then sooner or later the question of taking steroids will become. This is especially true for girls whose goal is the stage. Of course, every lady wants to shine at competitions and delight the eyes with her athletic figure. Subject to the necessary training experience and the supervision of a competent trainer and doctor, Oxandrolone will become …
