Winstrol vs Anavar
Table of Contents
Often people ask us what our opinion’s and experiences are when it comes down to Winstrol Vs Anavar. We have decided to provide you with this in-depth review to help you understand which compound we prefer and why.
Winstrol and Anavar are both very popular oral steroids. They are considered great cutting and hardening steroids because they are known for taking conditioning to the next level. Let’s take an individual look at both Winstrol vs Anavar before we start comparing them.
What is Winstrol?
You might know Winstrol as Stanozolol or Winny. Stanozolol is a strong 17alpha-alkylated anabolic androgenic steroid (AAS) derived from DHT (dihydrotestosterone). It was developed back in 1962 by Winthrop Laboratories.
Winstrol was prescribed to help treat muscle wasting diseases and other conditions such as stunted growth in children. It has been discontinued for the most part but it is still available in some countries.
To give you an idea of how strong Winstrol is, it has an androgenic: anabolic ratio of 30:320, making it 3 times more anabolic than Testosterone. The main issue with Winstrol is that it is hepatoxic meaning it can cause damage to the liver cells. You don’t want to be running Winstrol for longer than 6 weeks, you should also have a cycle support product on hand at all times.
Winstrol has great bioavailability and comes in either tablet form or as an injectable suspension, it is mainly said that the winstrol suspension is a lot stronger than the oral tablets.
Stanozolol is often used as a performance-enhancing drug, not only in the world of bodybuilding but also for other sports such as sprinting and boxing.
People are often under the impression that Winstrol is only good for building muscle, that is not the case. To give you an example, Sprinter Ben Johnson was tested positive for Winstrol during the ’98 Summer Olympia, which resulted in him losing his gold medal.
Anavar (Oxandrolone) is often considered as a mild androgenic anabolic steroid. It is also derived from DHT and does not convert to estrogen. Just like Winstrol, Anavar was also introduced back in the ‘60s. Even though it is considered weak by many, it has definitely has its benefits.
This compound’s primary function was to help promote weight gain in different conditions. People with HIV get prescribed Oxandrolone when they start to experience muscle wasting symptoms.
Oxandrolone is a very mild compound that does not carry a lot of side effects. This compound is also a 17alpha-alkylated anabolic steroid, which means it has the potential to be hepatoxic.
However, it is said that Anavar is nowhere near as liver toxic as other compounds such as Dianabol and Anadrol. Most people see Anavar as a ‘’clean’’ steroid just because they have no side effects at all whilst running it.
The androgenic: anabolic ratio of Anavar is 320-360:24. Due to Anavar having weak androgenic properties, it is often used by females. Anavar is a very popular compound among female physique competitors.
Even though Anavar gets blown away by other oral steroids, with Anavar you won’t have to worry as much about side effects.
Let’s start off by saying both of these compounds have their own set of qualities when it comes down to performance enhancing. But what most of you are probably interested in is which steroid is the stronger and more effective one?
When we take a look at Winstrol Vs Anavar milligram per milligram, Winstrol is definitely stronger and more effective. If you compare 75mg of Winstrol to 75mg of Anavar, Winstrol is going to beat it every time.
People who have used both will know what I am talking about, it just gives you that instant hard look and muscle separation.
When using steroids, you’re looking to get results – with Anavar you will see some slight changes but probably not the changes you are after. You also have to run Anavar at high dosages to get the effects, 25-50mg won’t do much.
Knowing Winstrol is the better choice, should you go for the oral or the injectable version? That’s a good question. Injectable Winstrol beats the oral version mainly because it is even more potent than the oral. There is nothing else that will pull out more water than injectable Stanozolol.
If you do decide to run Winstrol, make sure to run a moderate dosage. Winstrol is very hepatoxic and your lipids are going to take a hit when running it. I would also advise running a cycle support product when using any type of oral.
That does not mean Anavar is completely useless – It has so little side effects compared to Winstrol.
And as you might already know Winstrol completely dries you out and can cause horrible joint pains which can negatively impact your workouts. With Anavar you won’t be having this problem but as mentioned it is much less effective.
To each their own, Winstrol will carry more side effects but has a lot more to offer than Anavar. Whilst Anavar is considered to be a weak steroid in terms of results, it does not carry side effects as Winstrol does.
So when would you use Anavar? Mainly for endurance because Winstrol can dry you out which can also hurt you.
