For most men an Anavar cycle will be best served for the cutting process or dieting phase; the phase in-which an individual is looking for a ripped physique. This is not a steroid that will serve this purpose to as strong a degree as Trenbolone or even Equipoise nor will it have the same efficiency as Winstrol and many other DHT steroids such as Masteron but it can have a positive effect that is present in a mild form. An Anavar cycle during a cutting diet phase can greatly aid in preserving lean tissue while on a calorie restricted diet as well as increase total metabolic activity; further, when lean enough it can give a physique a bit of a harder appearance. Most men who supplement with Oxandrolone for this purpose will find 50mg per day to generally be a good starting point with 80mg per day being generally safe. Yes, you can take more but much past the 100mg per day range is not going to do a lot more for you; further, as this steroid can cost at least $2 per 10mg tab and often higher an Anavar cycle for a man can get very expensive.
The average dose for Anavar in women is anywhere from 5mg to 20mg per day, depending on whether a woman is cutting or bulking. Bear in mind that not all women will benefit from 5mg, even during a cutting cycle, and many women will never need to take 20mg to pack on lean muscle. The best way to mitigate the signs of virilization is to use a responsible dose of Anavar for a short cycle length of no longer than six weeks. Women who experience any of the aforementioned Anavar side effects should immediately lower their doses or stop using the steroid altogether.
