Oxandrolone is a steroid which is mild in anabolic nature, and was actually used as a treatment to promote growth in children. Being a derivative of dihydrotestosterone we have a steroid that is already 5-alpha reduced, and therefore possesses reduced androgenic activity.
As the steroid does not aromatised we have a product that is popular amongst those who are prone to oestrogen related side effects. There is no need for an anti-oestrogen such as nolvadex whilst running oxandrolone on its own.
Oxandrolone is a popular choice for cutting cycles, being a non-aromatising steroid we have no worry of the build up of subcutaneous fluids that may cause a less defined look. Its mild anabolic nature makes anavar a decent choice for slow yet solid gains in muscle, or for the preservation of muscle mass whilst on a calorie restricted diet. When stacked with other non-aromatising steroids, such as winstrol or primobolan, we can end up with more noticeable results, whilst not retaining any subcutaneous fluids. Adding a non-aromatising androgen will promote a harder and defined look, such as with trenbolone. Oxandrolone may be added to a bulking cycle to add its anabolic nature to the overall stack, with no added oestrogen side effects. However, its anabolic nature is mild, and oxandrolone can often suppress the appetite which is obviously not what we want whilst trying add muscle mass.
