Oxandrolone was often refereed to as an all purpose oral Anabolic-Androgenic Steroid. This drug was once marketed under the product name (still commonly used trade name) of Anavar. It has the unique quality of significantly stimulating (more than other Anabolic-Androgenic Steroid) the synthesis of phosphocreatine in muscle cells which in turn provides faster regeneration of, and a distinct elevation in, Adenosine triphosphate. Of course all Anabolic-Androgenic Steroid have this effect to some extent.
Rapid build- up in strength was frequently reported and an obvious distinct hardness in muscle was obtained with little weight gain and no aromatization.
Though it is a common belief that Oxandrolone is not very anabolic, a clinical study showed a 44% increase in muscle cell protein synthesis after only 5 days of administration. Since Oxandrolone does not aromatize to estrogen, water retention is reported as quite low and gyno was of no concern. Also, for the same reason, during dieting phases fat deposits were said to be “burned away” more quickly. (Especially when the drug was co-administered with Clenbuterol).
Oxandrolone was reported to stack well with so -called mass steroids such as testosterone or with high anabolic / moderate androgenic steroids such as Equipoise or Nandrolones. Persons over 40 have reported excellent results by stacking 15-25 mg of Oxandrolone daily with 200-400 mg of Deca.
