Oral and injectable steroids both have their benefits. Primarily, oral steroids offer huge gains in short periods, and injectable steroids offer smaller, higher quality gains over longer periods of time. Most of the bodybuilders and athletes who utilize anabolic steroids will actually use both during a cycle. They will start out with one of the oral steroids as a “kick-start” for their gains, then switch over to an injectable before the side effects become too much to handle. This way, they can enjoy quick gains from the start, then turn them into lean muscle without much water retention throughout the rest of the cycle.
For the female athlete we can make an exception as this can be a fairly decent bulking agent; as you recall women are more sensitive to the hormone. No, it will more than likely not put on piles of lean tissue but it can with enough calories present in the diet bring about a nice lean tissue gain. Further, as water weight is of no concern with this steroid every last pound of tissue gained will be that of 100% pure lean muscle mass. As was with cutting Anavar dosages 10mg per day will be the place to start; if the woman really wants to put on some size 20mg may prove to be fine here but she needs to have a good understanding of how her body reacts first before attempting such a dose. Further, as Anavar dosages are so low for most women, while the hormone isnt cheap, because they need so little it proves to be much more efficient on a price to benefit ratio.
HGH, on the other hand, is different. While testosterone can be found in both the male and female body, women have significantly less testosterone than men. Conversely, both men and women alike have about the same blood concentration of HGH through infancy, childhood, puberty, and adolescence. In adulthood, men do seem to have slightly more HGH, and for this reason, the dose for women is slightly different – between and 4IU per day, depending on goals. For most women, a dose of 1IU daily is perfect for cutting, while to 2IU per day is ideal for bulking.
