Using a randomized "double-blind" "placebo-controlled" design, 16 experienced male bodybuilders (age: 19-44 yr) either received ND (200 (-1), intramuscularly) or placebo for 8 wk. Body composition was assessed using the four-component model, combining results from underwater weighing, dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA), and deuterium dilution. Total bone mineral content and density were measured using DXA. Water compartments (extracellular water [ECW] and intracellular water [ICW]) were determined using deuterium dilution and bromide dilution.
Many users have gained desirable results after use of Anadrol. Some have noticed considerable gain as soon as they started taking the steroid. Some others felt that there was lot of fat loss in the body while they gained lean and toned muscle mass. This made them look well sculpted rather than flabby as they looked before. Many body builders and weight lifters observed that they could lift much more weight than before taking the drug. There was a visible boost in their stamina, endurance and the time period for which they could continue lifting the weight.
