Anadrol (Oxymetholone), is a DHT-derived oral anabolic steroid.In bodybuilding, Anadrol is considered the most powerful oral steroid on the market.
Anadrol, also known as A-bombs or Oxy’s, is predominantly used by bodybuilders in the off-season (when bulking); significantly increasing muscular size and strength.

In the bodybuilding world, athletes started using the steroid during the golden age and its popularity stayed constant into the 90’s and 2000’s as mass and size became more popular. Today it is still used by those who want something to build a lot of mass and strength in a short period of time.
Anadrol (Oxymetholone) benefit & effect
- Rapid weight gain
- Enhances strength
- Oral form
- Joint support
- Fat loss
- Rapid Weight Gain
Anadrol is quite possibly the best steroid in terms of weight gain, and blowing up a user’s muscles fast. This makes it a compound particularly coveted by skinny males who want huge gains.
The weight gained on Anadrol is typically comprised of muscle and water retention.
It is not uncommon for users to gain as much as 10lbs in the first week on Anadrol. By the 6th week, weight gain can increase to 30lbs. Roughly half of this is likely to be water.
Because Anadrol shifts a lot of water inside the muscle cells, muscle pumps in the gym can be described as ‘skin tearing. Pumps can become so huge where they are actually problematic, with some users describing lower back pumps as painful.
Anadrol will take a bodybuilder’s muscle size to a whole new level, with it being over 3x more anabolic than testosterone.
Some of this size will be temporary intracellular fluid retention, giving the muscles a constant pumped look.
However, the lean muscle gains on Anadrol are still significant, due to the steroid skyrocketing testosterone levels, protein synthesis and increasing nitrogen retention.
Scientists regard Anadrol as “one of the most potent steroids ever developed for building muscle“, with participants gaining 14.5lbs of muscle per 100lb of bodyweight in studies (2).
However, these results are based on high doses for excessive periods of time, thus results for a bodybuilder will be slightly less, assuming a shorter cycle and a more cautious dose.
18lbs of lean muscle is common for a first-time 6 week cycle of Anadrol. This will be roughly 60% of the overall weight gained.
Anadrol is arguably the greatest steroid in powerlifting and strongman circles. This is due to the sheer weight gain and the huge surge in testosterone.
It is common for users to add 30lbs to their bench press in the first 10 days on Anadrol.
By the end of a cycle, Anadrol has the ability to add approximately 60lbs to a user’s squat, deadlift and bench press.
Usually, the strength gained during these compound lifts will be double the bodyweight gained on Anadrol.
Strength levels can decrease by 40% post-cycle, which correlates with the same degree of weight loss.
Anadrol 50 essentially is a 50mg tablet. Thus, no injections are needed to reap the rewards from this steroid.
Injections can be very dangerous if the person doesn’t know what they are doing. One of the most common injection sites is the buttocks, which if done incorrectly can injure the sciatic nerve and cause paralysis .
Injections even when done safely, can be uncomfortable, which isn’t ideal when administering steroids with short half-lives (such as Anadrol), which require frequent injections.
Injecting into the buttocks may also mean users have to rely on friends or family to inject them.
Despite orals being more convenient and easier to take, there are drawbacks to taking pills, which will be detailed in the side effects section.
Anadrol is somewhat healthy for the joints, due to its water-retaining properties.
It lubricates the joints, increasing elasticity and decreasing inflammation or/and joint pain.
Thus, if a bodybuilder does have joint problems, taking a steroid such as Anadrol or Deca Durabolin may be more preferable to Winstrol for example; with the latter expelling water and creating more wear on the joints.
Some people believe Anadrol causes fat gain; however, this isn’t accurate.
All anabolic steroids, including Anadrol, are different types of exogenous testosterone.
Testosterone will build muscle and burn fat. Thus, different steroids will build muscle and burn fat to different degrees.
Two studies have concluded that Anadrol burns significant amounts of subcutaneous fat when dosed at 100mg per day (4, 5).
The reason why Anadrol may appear to cause fat gain is due to water retention. The puffiness and bloating from the excess fluid can give the appearance of a higher body fat percentage.
As it’s a bulking steroid, users are likely to combine Anadrol with a high-calorie diet, resulting in fat gain and additional water retention. This however is linked to the person’s diet and not directly related to Anadrol itself.
Therefore, if a maintenance calorie diet is adopted, the person will not gain subcutaneous fat.
However, Anadrol and other steroids can cause increases in visceral fat (6). This is not the fat you can pinch around your stomach, but instead located internally and wraps around your organs.
Anadrol (Oxymetholone) side-effects
Anadrol Oxymetholone has numerous side effects which are hard to combat when they get out of control. The issues become complicated because it has 4 distinct features that give you side effects from a bunch of places you wouldn’t see from other steroids.
Although it is a DHT derivative, it still effects the estrogen receptors so you can still get problems with gynocomestia, bloat, high blood pressure, tiredness, and insomnia.
Aggression, mood swings, impatience, heart strain, fatigue and insomnia are all common issues.
Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) side effects can manifest itself by harming your prostate and by shedding head hair.
- Liver toxic:
To top things off it is liver toxic. You should run N2guard to help with this issue.
How To Use The Anadrol (Oxymetholone) ?
Anadrol Oxymetholone does not need to be stacked nor does it need to be ran at high dosages. I have personally enjoyed using just 25mg a day for 4-6 weeks and got outstanding results. Some guys will push the dosage up to 50mgs a day, which is considered the standard bodybuilding dosage, to see how they do then drop the dose down if needed. There is no reason to run it higher than that unless you want to risk problems.
No oral out there is capable of putting on mass faster and moving the weight scale up in such a short time. You can add 10, 15, or even 20 pounds in just 4-6 weeks.
It is amazing for strength especially for people stuck at plateau’s. I have used it to break a 6 month strength plateau.
You can choose to use it for contest prep but you must already have experience to know how your body reacts and you must stop using it as you get near competition day.
Use as a kickstart:
If you choose to use it in a stack you will want to kickstart it along with a mild dosage of Testosterone, Primo, Equipoise, or another low side effect steroid. I do not recommend using it with another harsh steroid or you will risk major problems.
We do not recommend females go near Anadrol Oxymetholone due to its unpredictable and numerous side effects.
Storage Of The Anadrol (Oxymetholone)
Store at controlled room temperature 15° to 30° C (59° to 86° F)
Anadrol Effects on Body
I think, in order to gain a complete understanding of the Anadrol 50 effects on body, we need to take a look at its advantages contrasted with its disadvantages. Anadrol is a DHT-derived compound, and is 17-Alpha-Alkylated steroid, meaning that it has been altered at the 17th carbon position to survive oral ingestion. Most oral steroids are 17aa, and this helps them make it through your liver in a useful form. Sounds great, right? Lets 17alpha-alkylate everything! Well as you can imagine, there’s a down side.
What is an Anadrol Cycle? How much should you use? Well, this is actually one of the most interesting facts about Anadrol 50. You see, most steroids produce what we call a “dose respondent curve” which is a fancy way of saying “the more you use, the more you gain.”
Anadrol is one of the few steroids where the dose respondent curve flattens out very quickly. When you take 50mgs of Anadrol, you’ll make some very good gains. When you take 100mgs of Anadrol, you’ll make even more gains. However, it has been found that 100mgs/day is as effective for weight gain as 150mgs/day but produces less side effects and was less toxic (4). I feel that the jump from 50mgs to 100mgs constitutes an acceptable rise in benefit vs. cost, but this is not the case as dosages get over 100mgs. Now, lets see how 50mgs and 100mgs of Oxymetholone actually effect strength, when compared with each other:
Relative (%) changes in strength are shown for the groups receiving placebo (filled bars), 50 mg/day oxymetholone (open bars), and 100 mg/day oxymetholone (gray bars). Nos. above bars represent relative change (%) from baseline to week 12 for the 1-repetition maximum tests of strength. Error bars represent 1 SE from the mean. * Significant difference from placebo, P < 0.05; significant difference from placebo by Wilcoxon test, P < 0.02. See text for additional statistical analyses.
As you can see, in this study, doubling the dose of Anadrol 50 nearly doubled the strength gains of the test subjects. Now, when we look at changes in body composition from Oxymetholone (chart below) we can see that although the guys taking the 100mgs (vs. the 50mgs group) had more fat lost and more Lean Body Mass gained, it wasn’t as dramatic as the differences in strength gains between the two groups:
Changes in body composition are shown for the groups receiving placebo (filled bars), 50 mg of oxymetholone per day (open bars), and 100 mg per day (gray bars). Numbers above the bars represent the mean absolute changes and the error bars are 1 SE. For total lean body mass (LBM) and total fat, differences among the 3 groups were significant (P < 0.0001, one-way ANOVA). * Significant differences from placebo, P 0.001.
Although I am usually not inclined to posit speculations on why a particular drug does or doesn’t do something, in this case I will. Im guessing that the higher doses of Anadrol cause enough appetite suppression (at least anecdotally) to make eating rather difficult. It can also increase insulin resistance and glucose intolerance (5). This has the effect of making macronutrient absorption more inefficient, and could also be a factor in reducing gains when the dosage goes over 100mgs/day. Unfortunately, Anadrol also has a reasonably profound effect on your body’s natural hormonal system, on par with most other oral steroids, but not as bad as most injectables, and its certainly not as harsh on your lipid profile as many anabolics are
Anadrol Body Building
(2). As an interesting side note, some of the medical literature on this compound suggests a dose of 1-5mgs per kg of bodyweight. Ill pause a second here for you to figure out how absurdly high of a dose that would translate to for the average bodybuilder!
To Buy Anadrol Liquiad Anadrol and others
This steroid is very available on the black market in the form of capsules, tablets (some are even 75mgs!), liquid, and even paper. Prices will vary, and be indicative of many different factors including the form you buy this compound in (paper will usually be the most expensive, and liquid the least), and where you live. In any case, you shouldnt be paying more than $2.50-3.00 per 50mgs.
