Similarities and differences between Anavar and Winstrol

Anavar (Oxandrolone) is used as cutting cycle aiming to reduce weight and increase muscle mass in the body. It helps to keep muscles full and big during a cut instead of looking flat and dry during dieting time. There is no water retention because it flushes water out from the body and gives ‘dry’ look to muscles. It is also used in treating diseases like osteoporosis, infections and body trauma. Men usually take 20 mg-100 mg daily of Anavar. It is called as ‘girl steroid’ because of no virilization effect on women. Women usually take 2.5 mg-10 mg daily of Anavar. You could also combine them with other steroids for better results. It is usually stacked with Winstrol, Primobolan, HGH, Halotestin and Balance. After the cycle is over, Post Cycle Therapy is done with Arimidex, Clomid, Nolvadex, N2Guard and Ostarine.

Winstrol (Stanozolol) is also used as a cutting cycle to increase strength and reduce body fat. It helps in improving nitrogen retention and protein synthesis, increases testosterone levels in the body, improved athletic performance, does not convert to estrogen and hardens muscles in the body. It has minimal androgenic side effects and there is no virilization, making it ideal for women to use. Men usually take 25 mg-100 mg of Winstrol daily and women take 5 mg-10 mg daily. You also could combine them with Anavar, Testosterone, Dianobol, Trenbolone, Clenbuterol, Deca Durabolin and Masteron. After the cycle is over, Post Cycle Therapy is done with Clomid, Nolvadex.
