Anadrol cycles are some of the most common cycles in performance enhancing but as with any anabolic steroid or supplement of any form you need to know how to take it if youre going to truly reap a reward. By and large the strong majority of Anadrol cycles will be for the purpose of bulking during off-season periods of use, as this is the steroids primary purpose; to increase size and strength. However, there are those who will include Anadrol cycles into their cutting phase and almost always this is among competitive bodybuilders as they are generally the only ones who will find this useful. Some hardcore gym rats who are not competitors of any kind may do this as well but the effect is so short lived its generally not a worthwhile practice for them.
For the strong majority Anadrol cycles will be during the off-season and for the strong majority the period of use will be at the front end of the total cycle as part of a kick start to a total stack. As this steroid is very fast acting it will bring results to the cycle very quickly and as it provides synergy among the other anabolic steroids present it gives them a greater ability early on in order to get the ball rolling.
For most all 50mg per day Anadrol cycles is the starting point and often all the Anadrol anyone will ever need; however, some more experienced individuals may opt for doses of as much as 100mg per day but you are urged to find out how you respond to a lower dose first before ever experimenting with 100mg. Make no mistake, in either case massive gains can come; if enough food is being taken in 50mg of this steroid per day can easily yield a 20lb gain in a month, perhaps even more.
How long should Anadrol cycles last? Generally speaking 4-6 weeks and thats it. Those who extend use past the 6 week mark will more than likely find it to be a waste of a good steroid as this steroids effectiveness is only short lived and breaks must be taken. Once the 4-6 week mark has passed it is time to rely on the other anabolic steroids present to do the work. You will also find this falloff effect to be greatly revolving around dose as well; individuals who break the 100mg per day mark will not find gains to be much more significant and it has been shown that such doses can seriously kill ones appetite making bulking very difficult.
Even though primarily a bulking steroid Anadrol cycles can be useful to the dieting competitive bodybuilder. Unlike our bulking use this period of use will take place at the end of the cycle, shortly before the competition is to take place. How it works is simple; the presence of this steroid allows the individual to fill out to a greater degree giving the muscles just that, a rounder and fuller look once on stage. It is very important to note, the individual should have some experience with Anadrol cycles before ever trying this as to know with certainty how they respond to the steroid. Anadrol can cause a fair amount of water retention and for a competitor that is the last thing you want. However, if you understand how to control the steroid, if you are in shape and are supplementing with a good aromatase inhibitor you will enjoy this benefit.
For most 50mg per day for 4 weeks will suffice. This should be for the 4 weeks leading up to the show and it cannot be stressed enough, you need to be in shape. If you are behind in your diet this is a method you are going to need to forgo as the results can be horrible and effectively ruin your chances at placing well.
