In the bodybuilding world, ‘oxymetholone’ is the chemical profile belonging to many of the big brand anabolic steroids currently on the market, including Anadrol. Available in oral and injection form
Oxymetholone is believed to encourage increased testosterone levels, muscle mass and protein synthesis, as well as improved muscle recovery, strength and stamina. By raising red blood cell production in your body, this can ensure the successful delivery of oxygen to your muscles (preventing fatigue and energy losses).
But what is Oxymetholone steroid exactly? How is it used in bodybuilding (and beyond)? and what precautions should I take when starting Oxymetholone?
What is Oxymetholone?
Oxymetholone is a synthetic male hormone (similar to testosterone) that is used within anabolic steroids to treat low red blood cell counts (anemia).
By increasing the amount of erythropoietin produced and excreted within your body, this can boost red blood cell production, and improve the transportation of oxygen around your body. This is particularly helpful for those suffering from different types of anemia e.g. anemia caused by chemotherapy.
Yet, this is not all it can do…
Alongside assisting blood transfusions, folic acid and antibacterial therapy in the treatment of red blood cell deficiency; Oxymetholone has also earned itself a strong reputation within the bodybuilding community.
Why? Because of its ability to oxygenate your muscles. You see, when your muscles don’t receive enough oxygen, this can lead to tiredness and power drops (not good if you want to benefit from an intense workout).
That is why, if you really want to strengthen your workouts – and achieve the muscle gains you crave – your muscles NEED to obtain more oxygen to fuel their muscle recovery, development and growth.
And the only way to do that, is to ensure that you’ve got plenty of red blood cells in the first place to transport all this oxygen.
