What is Anavar?

Anavar or ‘var’, is another fantastic oral steroid which has been on the market since the mid to late ’60s. It has long been the oral of choice for pre-competition bodybuilders and in more recent years is a favourite summer drug for regular gym-goers. 

Var, in terms of gains, has always been highly respected for its ability to aid in lean muscle growth and visceral fat loss, it has, however, often been referred to as a weak or mild PED. Mainly because people have not used it at the correct time, or in the right body composition.

Over the years var has continually been a staple for pre-competition bodybuilders and athletes where speed and lean muscle gains are a priority. Its ability to build lean muscle with minimal sides is largely down to its high anabolic rating and low androgenicity.

Anavar has been and will always be a favourite amongst competing bodybuilders and athletes, but it has also gathered a huge reputation amongst people looking to tighten their abs and build some muscle before the summer holidays.

Of course, taking a c17 alpha alkylated tablet does have its downsides. Side effects can be more widespread and common when taken without precaution or run for longer and high dose cycles.

Androgenic Rating: 20

Anabolic Rating: 300 +

Oxandrolone, var, is widely available by many, if not all, UGLs and is most commonly found in 10mg tabs. You can also find 2.5mg, 5mg and 50mg tabs on the market.

What Does an Anavar Cycle Look Like?

Var cycles can be run in a couple of ways. It entirely depends on what the user hopes to achieve. It can be run solo in cycles of 4 – 6 weeks, it can be run as a kickstart alongside other compounds e.g. Testosterone and Tren or Boldenone with var being run for the first 4 weeks to ‘kick start’ the cycle.

When run alone cycles will typically be 4 – 6 weeks in length in doses ranging from 30mg daily to 50mg on the higher end. Depending on how you react some people have taken doses up to 100mg daily, although it isn’t recommended due to the wear and tear on the liver.

One of the most effective ways of taking var is as a kickstart to a longer cycle. In the first few weeks of a cycle, people are eager to see and feel gains. Using Anavar for the first 4-6 weeks allows for greater gains from day one and maximum synergistic effect.

As with anything to do with performance-enhancing drugs, not everything works for everyone. It is important to listen to your body and see what works for you.

    What Are The Side Effects of Anavar

    Any drug can have side effects and steroids are no different. Side effects of var can come in various ways, however, it is important to note when taking oral steroids they can affect the liver much more than injectable steroids.

    Side effects from steroids can affect the cardiovascular system, estrogenic and androgenic.

    When using anabolic/androgenic steroids, it is essential to understand the risks associated with the use and also how to minimise the chances of them occurring. 

    It is important to note that not everyone will experience side effects from steroids. It is essential to know and understand the risk associated with them, though. 

    Anavar is also a favourite amongst female athletes and there are some more concerning side effects which can occur for women who chose to use var.

    We can break down the side effects of Anavar into the following subjects;


    • Estrogenic side effects
    • Androgenic side effects
    • Cardiovascular side effects
    • Hepatotoxicity
    • Natural testosterone shutdown

    Androgenic Side Effects Of var

    Anavar, much like Dianabol is actually a very powerful anabolic steroid, yet it does have the power to produce androgenic side effects. More users than not still suffer from oily skin, breakouts on the back and shoulders as well as deepening of the voice and an increase in body hair growth.

    If you suffer from male pattern baldness it is possible Anavar will increase the rate at which you are losing hair.

    Anavar is also very popular amongst female athletes and it should be noted side effects for women can be more pronounced.

    Menstrual irregularities or issues, facial hair growth, deepening of the voice and enlargement of the clitoris are all possible side effects of var. 

    Estrogenic Side Effects

    One of the appealing things about var is that it isn’t aromatized by the body. Users should not have to worry about estrogenic side effects including, water retention, gynecomastia or an increase in fatty deposits.

    Users sensitive to estrogenic sides are usually fine while running Anavar.

    Cardiovascular Side Effects

    Anavar can affect cholesterol levels by reducing HDL or ‘good cholesterol and increasing LDL ‘bad cholesterol. This shift, over time, can result in the hardening of the artery walls and higher levels of fat in the bloodstream leading to strokes, or heart attacks if left unchecked and untreated.

    Anavar has been known to be particularly aggressive when it comes to the shift of cholesterol from good to bad. 

    It can also affect your blood ‘thickness’, by increasing your red blood cell count. 

    It is highly recommended for anyone thinking about running a cycle, or who has already run one to get blood tests done at least every three months. This not only allows you to know what is going on in regard to your health but also make any necessary adjustments before starting.

    Does var affect the liver?

    Anavar is a c17 alpha-alkylated drug. This means a larger portion of the compound survives being broken down by the liver and enters the bloodstream. This passing causes extra strain as the liver has to work much harder to process it.

    Damage to the liver can happen in doses from as little as 15mg per day and above. Running longer cycles exposes the liver to more damage over a prolonged period of time. 

    It is recommended to take a liver support product while running var, however, they are not always effective in repairing damaged cells.

    Natural Testosterone Shutdown 

    Using any form of steroid will lead to the suppression of your natural test production. This often returns after the cycle has stopped. In rare cases or when users have been on a cycle for prolonged periods, people can be shut down permanently or suffer from low testosterone levels for many years.

    PCT ancillaries such as HCG can help keep the testes stimulated and produce natural testosterone. It is usually taken as a part of a PCT (post-cycle therapy).

    Benefits of using Anavar

    • Oral tablet, convenient and easy to take
    • Great for building lean mass
    • It helps with visceral fat
    • Great synergistically when ran alongside other PEDs
    • Great for lean cycles


    Anavar has earned its place amongst the best PEDs on the market and for a good reason. It not only appeals and is used by bodybuilders but swimmers, speed athletes and even boxers have been known to use var in between competitions and to boost their skills to the next level.

    When running Anavar the pumps can be intense as the blood flow increases to the muscles. It is important to keep extra hydrated and it has been reported increasing potassium can help. It is always best to stick to a lower dose and use it alongside another compound for the best gains.

    If you’re looking to maximise your lean gains or already have a relatively low body fat level then supplementing with Anavar will be much more noticeable and you will likely see far better gains than people with higher bf.
