I am busy watching a 2019 video, by Dr. Thomas O’Connor and MD Online Editor Ron Harris, about Anavar

In the video, they state:

Anavar is 6 x more Anabolic than Test
It is Non-androgenic
It does not aromatize
It does not metabolize in the liver
No water retention

Goes through the kidneys. It is ok for the kidneys, if you have no family history of kidney disease.


I am not planning to use it. This is more just adding articles to my own research.


What are you guys thoughts on this ? ... or maybe, anything you would like to add ?

There appears to be some evidence of oxandrolone inducing lipolysis and stimulating fatty acid oxidation.

Studies I have access to are limited and some in older overweight population. However, it is rather interesting how combination of oxandrolone or other DHT-derivatives can seriously tweak outcomes in both muscle gain/fat loss compared to control study population of just T.

Thank you.


You reply also lead me to this:

A true fat burning steroid

Anavar is also well known for its role in promoting an increase in the number of red blood cell which enhances muscle endurance. Studies have shown that this steroid can promote and enhance cardiovascular endurance. Lastly, Anavar remains as the only true fat burning steroids. Whereas other anabolic steroids only enhance the metabolic rate which promotes fat loss, experiment has shown that anvar directly promotes lipolysis.


Effects of Anavar

Muscle Growth
Cutting or fat loss
Athletic Enhancement:
Enhanced Performance
Anvar administration



But I see the Dose is very important. 1 Dose leads to cutting, while another dose can lead to bulking:

"The recommendation presents 30 mg for athletic purposes, up to 80 mg for cutting and 100 mg during bulking."


Another article suggests that, used on its own, leads to cutting, while adding T, can lead to bulking.

The Doc in the video also says, that is is popular in power lifting, because of its strength gains.


Its anabolic rating is 322-630.

I see Anavar is Greg's number 1 Cutting steroid.

Doucette is a massive tool.
Even the anabolic doc has questionable information and dramaticizes many concepts while accepting some rather shitty ones.

OP consider watching most of these guys for entertainment only.

They both have, better, and worse, videos.

The Anabolic Doc, I understand what you mean by dramatize. He does that. Anyone that does that, always raises a red flag for me.


Greg also has some embarrasing videos, I am tempted to say "pms videos" :lol: :lol:

Sometimes he just totally freaks out. Could be the mood the gear puts him in that specific day.


I take from them the good, and throw away the bad. I am learning, so I also compare articles and videos.


Sorry for the "crap" :lol: I will try to be more selective.

I also quite like Dr. Rand's videos. He is very level headed, and always tries to understand the questions given to him, in the right perspective.

This Greg oke is usually painful to listen to but he has coached some guys to their IFBB pro cards like Iain Valliere who got second at the Tampo Pro the other day.

I think thats the what got me is how he expressed himself. I can't say his advice was off from that video blog, just painful as you said.

Yes, sorry for sharing. I said somewhere, can't remember where, that his videos, or the way he speaks, change.
Some days is he calm, and some days he sounds like a nagging lady. I can only guess, that his gear sometimes makes him more agro, I don't know. Just my personal opinion.


I take the good, and throw away the bad.

I listen to all the bodybuilders, and from that, extract the common (what they agree on) advice.

And I follow the doctors also. The anabolic doc can sometimes be the same, also sounds like he is nagging. And then other days, he is calmer.


Makes me smile. Something I learnt from my job/work. When getting an e-mail that upsets you, first wait a bit, and calm down, before answering or responding. Don't answer in the heat of the emotions.
