Oxandrolone is often refered to as an all purpose oral AAS, a drug once marketed under the
product name of Anavar. It has the unique capacity of significantly stimulating (more than other
AAS) the synthesis of phosphocreatine in muscle cells which in turn provides faster regeneration
of, and a distinct elevation in, ATP. To some extent all AAS have this effect.
Oxandrolone is simply unequaled in this aspect. Due to this quality, a rapid build-up in strength
was frequently reported and an obvious distinct hardness in muscle was obtained with little
weight gain and no aromatization.
Although it is a common belief that Oxandrolone is not very anabolic, a medical study showed a
44% increase in muscle cell protein synthesis after only 5 days of administration. Due to the fact
that Oxandrolone does not aromatize to estrogen, reports of water retention are practically
inexistent and gyno was of no concern. For the same reason during dieting phases fat deposits
are “burned away” more quickly, especially when the drug is co-administered with Clenbuterol.
Oxandrolone is reported to stack well with mass steroids such as testosterone or with high
anabolic/moderate androgenic steroids such as Equipoise or Nandrolones. Individuals over 40
have reported excellent results by stacking 15-25 mg of Oxandrolone daily with 200-400 mg of

meaning that the drug by itself will not significantly suppress natural testosterone production. . the low androgenic quality prevents almost all virilization for women in dosages of 15-mg daily or less. Oxandrolone does not suppress any part of the hypothalamus-pituitary-testes axis (HPTA).Males have achieved a very hard pre-contest appearance when stacked with Oxandrolone and Halotestin if a estrogen/progesterone receptor antagonist had been utilized as well. For that reason it was not uncommon for some athletes to report post-cycle HPTA regeneration protocols that included this drug. The drug was originally manufactured to be used by women to prevent osteoporosis and for children as a cure for stunted growth.
