For athletes who prefer to build muscle mass using steroids, it is important to know what specific effects they have. Oxymetolone is considered one of the most serious steroid drugs injected. This anabolic steroid accumulates in fluid in the body, which in turn makes muscle large and bloated in appearance. It is also important to note that the fluid collected has a positive effect on the functioning of the joints, so the weight gain process and the increase in efficiency and duration of training by an athlete do not negatively affect the bones and ligaments.
Oxymetolone acts very quickly. In the first two weeks alone, an average athlete gains 2-7 kg of muscle mass. For this reason, representatives of power sports prefer to use this particular component. The steroid is active, but it gives a fast result. In addition, on the eve of the competition, during the drying process, many bodybuilders prefer to use oximetallone in order to look more attractive, because after it is used, venousity appears, which is almost impossible to achieve if the body is dehydrated. Among the most common effects of oximetolone is considered:
- increase in muscle volume;
- an increase in strength data;
- elimination of fat under the skin;
- an increase in appetite;
- increased red blood cell count;
- the appearance of venousity.
Oxymetolone is used to eliminate low levels of hemoglobin. The preparation aims to increase the number of red blood cells by increasing erythropoietin hormone levels. By using this drug, an athlete feels the good effect of increasing muscle levels. In addition, the athlete gains weight because oxymetolone helps to increase appetite.
Course of oxymetallone
Oxymetolone is available in the form of injections and tablets with dosages of 50 mg each. A dose of 50 to 200 mg per day is often used, and the product must be divided into two to three doses. Strangely enough, the medicinal dose of the drug is much higher than the sports dose. It is 1-5 mg per kg of weight per day. Using this recommendation, an athlete weighing 100 kg should use around 500 mg of the medicine. It is important to remember that this much is never used, even by professional athletes. There is evidence that when 300 mg or more is used, less water is collected per day, so the drug shows the quality of a fairly strong fat burner. However, such a dose should be treated with caution. In addition, there are more efficient and safer components for drying.
Oxymetolone side effects
The main side effect of using oximetallone is considered to be a strong accumulation of water, which results in an increase in pressure. In addition, the following negative effects are noted:
- reduced appetite;
- suppression of testosterone production in the body;
- reduces the sensitivity of cells to insulin;
- has a toxic effect on the liver;
These negative effects may not appear in the body, but every athlete who decides to use oxymetolone must be aware of them. In general, if you compare the product with other drugs used in bodybuilding, you can see that it is one of the weakest components and its effectiveness is due to its exceptionally high doses.
For example, 150 mg of oxymetolone per day is equivalent to 50 mg of methane in relation to its anabolic effect and toxicity to the liver. It can be concluded that oximetolone is 3 times weaker than methane.
