Bodybuilders and power lifters, in particular, like xandrol for three reasons. First, Xandrol causes a strong strength gain by stimulating the phosphocreatine synthesis in the muscle cell without depositing liquid (water) in the joints and the muscles. The second reason why Xandrol (oxandrolone) is so popular is that this compound does not aromatize in any dosage. The third reason which speaks well for an intake of Xandrol (Oxandrolone) is that even in a very high dosage this compound does not influence the bodies own testosterone production.
An Oxandrolone/Dianabol stack for example provides a lean mass gain with low water retention, ideal for bodybuilding while weightlifters will prefer an Oxandrolone/Androlic (strong androgens) stack to gain strength and muscle density.
