Running Anavar for 12 weeks could be a risk you don’t wanna try.
I’m telling you this from my years of anabolic steroid experience. DO NOT!
Keep reading to see what I mean. And why you shouldn’t.
You know, when it comes to taking oral Steroids there is always a great concern about safety – particularly about how long you can take orals before you need to stop. You would need to stop because orals are notoriously worse for you than regular injectable Steroids.
There are no rules or guidelines about oral use, however, 12 weeks of Anavar is far too long. Not only will your kidneys take a nasty hit but you will also start seeing issues with your estrogen levels as well.
Generally speaking, orals are used to break through plateaus. When your weight or strength gain has stopped you would throw in a few weeks of an oral to break through a hard time. Simple, right?
Well, times have changed and people are keener than ever to use the gear. This is why we see so many folks running ‘oral only’ cycles, which don’t really make sense. Most orals (barring Dianabol) all have an inherent issue when considering it as your only anabolic.
So, should you take Anavar for 12 weeks? No, definitely not. There are a couple of reasons why:
- Anavar is the only oral that is kidney toxic. Straining the kidneys for that long is asking for trouble
- (if you plan to use it alone) You will also run into issues of low Estrogen. Your testosterone will drop due to the steroid, and since Anavar cannot convert into Estrogen you will develop low estrogen levels. Low estrogen equals fewer gains and erectile dysfunction
When it comes to the duration of Anavar usage, there is no definitive or universally accepted time frame, as it can vary depending on various factors, including the individual’s health status, age, dosage, and purpose of use. However, there are guidelines that some people follow, such as the one mentioned in your question, which was created by Broderick Chavez.
According to Broderick Chavez’s guideline, the maximum number of weeks that one can use Anavar orally is calculated by dividing their weight in kilograms by 10.
For example, if someone weighs 86 kilograms, they would follow the guideline of 86/10 = 8 weeks of oral Anavar use.
It’s important to note that this guideline is not based on clinical evidence or established medical recommendations, but rather a rule of thumb that some individuals may choose to follow.
The optimal duration of Anavar usage should be determined by a qualified healthcare professional, taking into consideration the individual’s specific health needs, potential risks and benefits, and other relevant factors.
Like all steroids, Anavar can have potential side effects, including liver toxicity, hormonal imbalances, cardiovascular issues, and mood changes. Prolonged or excessive use of Anavar, or any other steroid, can increase the risk of these side effects. Therefore, it’s essential to use Anavar or any other medication only as prescribed by a qualified healthcare professional and to follow appropriate dosages, duration, and monitoring protocols.
It’s also important to note that the use of Anavar or any other steroid for performance-enhancing purposes, without a valid medical prescription, is considered illegal and unethical in many sports and competitions.
Whenever you are talking about using an anabolic steroid there are no real rules set in place because, well, the drugs were never designed to be used in that manner. Thus, it is a bit hard to have a definitive answer, so, we generally follow a guideline created by Broderick Chavez that reads as follows:
Max number of weeks you can use an oral = (Weight [in kg]) / 10
Example: 86kg / 10 = 8 Weeks of oral use
The longest Anavar cycle is the one you run until you die from kidney failure. Jokes aside, you can probably use Anavar for a good 6 – 8 weeks before you run into serious issues.
Every single cycle, however, you would need to do a ton of blood work to ensure you are healthy before making a choice about your next cycle.
