Oxymetholone is considered by many to be the most powerful oral steroid commercially available. A steroid novice experimenting with this agent is likely to gain 20 to 30 pounds of massive bulk, and it can often be accomplished within 6 weeks of use. This steroid produces a lot of water retention, so a good portion of this gain is going to be water weight. Although the smooth look that results from water retention is often not attractive, it can aid quite a bit to the level of size and strength gained.The muscle is fuller, will contract better, and is provided a level of protection in the form of extra water held into and around connective tissues.
Anadrol is most commonly manufactured in 50mg tablets, bodybuilding and athletic purposes call for 25 – 50mg per day for a beginner. Intermediate users are known for using a range of 50 – 100mg per day, and although approaching risky limits, advanced users as high as 150mg per day. Generally, however, most users whether beginner, intermediate, or advanced, should seldom require more than 50mg per day due to the sheer potency and strength of Anadrol as an anabolic steroid.
