Ask any experienced performance enhancer and most will tell you a good Dianabol cycle is hard to beat. One of the first anabolic steroids ever created and one of the few created for the purpose of performance enhancement, for well over half a century athletes of all types have implemented a Dianabol cycle into their routine. Without question much of this steroids popularity resides in the ranks of competitive bodybuilding and power lifting; after all, it was for Olympic strength athletes first created and wildly popular all through the Golden Age of bodybuilding. One of the absolute best anabolic steroids for pilling on mass and increasing strength, the Methandrostenolone hormone not only possesses these traits but it provides them at a rapid rate. How good is this small oral steroid, how powerful? You may be familiar with the popular steroid Anadrol and in many circles it is considered the premier oral steroid for size and strength. While Anadrol is a quality steroid, on a milligram for milligram basis Dianabol blows it out of the water in-terms of strength and power; it is far more potent on a per milligram basis. So how do we use it in order to maximize the benefits held within? Let’s take a look at how to plan a Dianabol cycle.
Without question most who supplement with the Methandrostenolone hormone will do so when they are in their off-season mode; simply meaning, they are trying to grow larger and become stronger. First and foremost, yes, this steroid can be used all alone and no, it shouldn’t be. Dbol, as it is commonly known will suppress your natural testosterone production and exogenous testosterone is advised to be administered. For the off-season Dianabol cycle we generally have two choices and sometimes in more hardcore elite circles a combination of both is used; the two options include kick starting and plateau busting.
There are some who will kick start and use this steroid as a plateau buster but this is not something we generally recommend. Absolutely, it will work but a Dianabol cycle can be quite toxic to the liver and it is recommended use be kept short and brief as to maintain optimal liver health.
It is a common myth that plagues many message boards and it is nothing more than a myth; the myth states Dianabol makes you gain fat. It is true, the Methandrostenolone hormone does aromatize and by this effect can cause a lot of water retention and when bulking most rarely concern themselves with a little water. Lets examine; water retention or bloat is not fat, its water retention plain and simple. Further, many who bloat badly when implementing a Dianabol cycle automatically blame the new found bloat solely on the Dbol when more times than not a large culprit is them overeating, especially regarding carbohydrates. Finally, if water retention is truly a bad issue for you and it will be more pronounced in some than others, a good aromatase inhibitor will eliminate concern. In short, if youre eating properly, not stuffing your face like a fat cow and supplementing responsibly, massive water retention will not be a problem and any that does occur is certainly not body-fat; but can it be used while cutting?
Without question increasing size and strength is this steroids primary nature but like many steroids it can serve secondary purposes apt for other goals. When the individual is dieting a good Dianabol cycle can aid in maintaining strength levels as they commonly drop when in a calorie deficit; further, like most anabolic hormones Dbol will preserve lean tissue. For the competitive bodybuilder this steroid can absolutely be used during a diet but we wouldnt recommend it at the tail-end due to the high aromatase factor. It is true, the Methandrostenolone hormone is perhaps not the best anabolic steroid for dieting purposes but if it is what you have available it will more than get the job done and the good news for you is this steroid is generally cheap and widely available.
