Albuterol Sulfate (Salbutamol)

This stuff is clenbuterols shorter acting brother. Essentially, it has all of the effects of clenbuterol, but actually may be better for athletes. See, where Clen has a very long lasting effect in the body, Albuterol actually has a comparatively short active and half-life. Since we know that we can expect all of the fun fat-burning effects Clen has, when using Albuterol, lets take a look at some of the more interesting effects its had on strength.

In one study, subjects performed 9 wk of isokinetic knee extensions twice weekly. Albuterol was given to one group, and placebo to the other, for 6 wks; groups received 16 mg.d-1 of either treatment, they were strength trained, and the results recorded. Anyway, making a long story short, the Albuterol group at both midtesting and post-testing had higher scores than the non-Albuterol group. These results give clear indications that even theraptic doses of Albuterol administered with resistance exercise may augment strength gains above and beyond those experienced without Albuterol (2).

Anecdotally, clenbuterol and ephedrine have both shown themselves capable of temporarily increasing strength, and I would bet most beta-agonists have this effect, but I dont think has been shown as conclusively as it has been with Albuterol.

Albuterol, perhaps due to its short half-life, may not have this deleterious effect (1) and therefore may actually be a more effective choice for athletes, though not bodybuilders, who can benefit from Clens long-lasting lipolytic effect.
