Oxymetholone is considered one of the most powerful synthetic anabolic steroids. This drug is often preferred by athletes seeking a rapid increase in muscle mass. In bodybuilding, beginners are not recommended to take it, as the steroid has a number of side effects and requires extremely skillful and careful use.
The effectiveness of using Oxymetholone
While taking Oxymetholone, athletes may notice the following positive reactions:
- increasing power potential;
- significant increase in muscle volume – on average, athletes can gain up to 15 kg of muscle mass per stroke;
- elimination of joint pain and reduced risk of injury, increased mobility through stimulation of synovial fluid production;
- pronounced synergistic effect when Anadrol enhances the effect of other steroids in a combined course for better results;
- Subcutaneous Fat Burning – Oxymetholone is often used by athletes who want to lose belly fat because the most pronounced effect of fat burning is seen in the abdomen.
The main effect of oxymetolone on the athlete’s body is the accumulation of large muscle volumes. You can gain up to 15 kg of muscle mass for a course of steroids. At the same time, this drug contributes to the accumulation of fluid in the tissues. This not only reduces the likelihood of injury during exercise, but also leads to a significant reversal phenomenon after the end of the course – up to 30% of the gained muscle volume can “melt”, since a third of the increased muscle mass is in the water.
In addition, oxymetholone significantly increases the appetite of athletes, allowing them to follow a special weight loss diet, which often requires large portions.
The average duration of the course of this steroid is about 1.5 months, which is enough to achieve the desired positive effect without the appearance of side effects. Extending the duration of steroid use does not significantly increase muscle mass further, but it can significantly increase the load on the body. The dosage is calculated individually. In any case, this course may only be followed by athletes who have reached the age of 21. Anapolon should also not be used by beginners in the first course in sports pharmacy.
Speaking of the effect of anadrol, one cannot fail to note its high effectiveness, but at the same time it would not be unreasonable to mention its negative aspects. When you follow a course of steroids, the chance of various side effects is high:
Hepatotoxic effect – when it passes through the liver, the steroid is not broken down, which means that its main component adversely affects the organ. However, if it is reasonable to approach the choice of drug dose, the toxic effect on the liver will be minimal.
High blood pressure – as the amount of fluid in the body increases, blood pressure rises. This is one of the most common side effects of Anadrol. The solution to the problem is the use of antihypertensive drugs (only after consulting a specialist).
Migraines are a common response to anadrol.
High cholesterol – we are talking exclusively about “bad” cholesterol.
Diarrhea is an unpleasant and rare side effect (usually there is discomfort in the intestines when large doses of the drug are used). The solution to the problem is loperamide, smecta, etc.
Anadrol for women and older athletes
“Anadrol” – is not suitable for older athletes, as they are more prone to various side effects. In addition, they are at particularly high risk of liver damage and prostate cancer. When combined with a regular high-calorie and, unfortunately, often high-fat, muscle-building diet, it can cause an increase in blood cholesterol levels, an increase in the LDL ratio, and a decrease in the HDL ratio. The production of its own testosterone is significantly reduced, due to “Anadrol” which has an inhibitory effect on the hypothalamus in the brain, which reduces or completely stops the release of the gonadotropic hormone. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to take testosterone stimulating drugs like HCG and Dineric to maintain the level of hormone production in the testes. When starting Anadrol, some athletes notice a marked increase in sexual interest, which disappears after a few weeks.
It is not recommended that women take Anadrol as it causes strong and partially irreversible masculinization phenomena: acne, clitoral hypertrophy, decreased voice, increased hair growth on the legs, face, increased libido, loss of hair on the head and associative behavior. Anadrol is simply too strong for the female body. However, some participants in national and international competitions take this drug and have great success. Women who do not want to give up Anadrol, which gives amazing results, but at the same time want to minimize the various side effects due to its androgenic nature, can start using it gently with 25 mg per day. Use “Anadrol” according to the 2-4 days off, 2-4 days off schedule, and combine it with some sort of “light” injectable steroid, primarily anabolic, with Primobolan, Durabolin, Anadur or “Silobolin” .
