OXA-MAX (Oxandrolone by Maxtreme Pharma) is an oral steroid which contains 10mg of the hormone Oxandrolone per pill. This steroid is commonly called Anavar, or “Var” for short. Anavar is considered one of the mildest steroids that there is. It is mildly anabolic and mildly androgenic. Even though it is a C-17 oral, it still has minimal effect on liver values even at higher doses. Var also isn’t known by bodybuilders as the steroid for big mass gains. Rather, the mass that is gained by Oxandrolone will be quality gains, and gains that likely to be kept after the steroid is no longer being used. Users of Anavar often note a very good increase in strength. Some bodybuilders declare that the strength increases without the extra side effects!
Oxandrolone will not aromatize, and therefore the anabolic effect of this compound can actually promote linear growth. Women usually tolerate this drug well at low doses, and at one time it was prescribed for the treatment of osteoporosis. It also has a reduced androgenic activity. This product is known as a good agent for the promotion of strength and quality physique improvement, although the mild nature of this compound makes it less than ideal for adding a significant amount of body weight. Studies using moderate dosages of this compound note minimal interferences with natural testosterone production. Likewise when it is used alone, even in larger amounts, there is typically no need for auxiliary drugs like Clomiphene Citrate/Tamoxifen Citrate or HCG, as it will not aromatize at any dosage. It is particularly suitable for users over forty years old.
The standard dosage for men is in the range of 20-30mg (2-3 tablets) per day, a level that should produce noticeable results. It can be further combined with anabolics like Stanozolol to elicit a harder, more defined look without added water retention. Such combinations are very popular and can dramatically enhance the physique. Women would be quite comfortable with Oxandrolone at a daily dosage of 5mg. Oxandrolone has a half-life of 8 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. Alternatively, the tablets can be taken two to three times daily after meals thus assuring an optimal absorption of the substance.
OXA-MAX also combines very well with Testosterone Undecanoate (Andriol), since it does not aromatize easily and has only a slight influence on the hormone production. The daily intake of 240 mg Testosterone Undecanoate and 15 mg OXA-MAX results in a good improvement in physique quality without excessive water retention and without significant influence on testosterone production.
Because of this, and the fact that users won’t gain a lot of weight because of the drug, Anavar is a very popular drug for powerlifters and sports related athletes. Due to its extremely mild nature, Oxandrolone is also one of the most popular steroids amongst women bodybuilders. Anavar has also been shown in studies to actually decrease bodyfat during use, making it a great choice for bodybuilders who are in the cutting phase of their training. Oxandrolone is also very mild when it comes to shutting down the body`s ability to produce testosterone, making it a great choice for those looking to “bridge” between cycles while allowing the body to recover. Those looking to stack Anavar with something may chose a low dose of a testosterone to do with it. Also, the classic Anavar / Primo cycle is one of the most popular cutting cycles ever. This cycle provides one with quality muscle gain and minimal side effects and risk.
Clearly OXA-MAX is a great all around steroid. Male bodybuilders will typically use Anavar in doses of 50-100mg a day for 6-12wks. Var has a relatively short half life of about 8 hours. So one may chose to split dosages throughout the day in order to keep blood levels as stable as possible. Women bodybuilders typically find a dosage of 2.5-10mgs to be effective for promoting muscle gains and strength without the great risk of side effects.
