Dianabol cycle before and after
Dianabol is the most popular name for this steroid by bodybuilders.
Dianabol is credited with being the second anabolic steroid ever created, with the first being testosterone. Dianabol is the most popular oral that there is.
It is popular with those new to anabolic substances due to how quickly it provides a gain in mass and strength.
Due to its fast effects on the body, Methandienone makes a great “jump start” to any cycle.
Here, bodybuilders, will take Dianabol at the beginning of a cycle to start seeing results immediately while waiting for the slower esters of the injectable anabolics to start taking affect.
Users of Dianabol often report significant gains in strength and muscle mass. D-bol is also famous for the intense “pump” that it gives the muscles during workouts.
This is mostly due to the fact that it dramatically increases protein synthesis and nitrogen retention within the muscle cells.
Mg for Mg, Methandienone is considered one of the strongest anabolic orals available to bodybuilders.
It is important to note that some do suffer from estrogen related problems with the usage of Dianabol, including bloat and sometimes “gyno” (the development of female tissue under the nipples in males resulting in unattractive and often painful lumps in this area).
Because of this, bodybuilders may prefer to use an estrogen inhibitor such as Anastrozole or Tamoxifen while on this steroid.
Like many other orals, Methandienone is a C17-alpha alkylated compound, and therefore can be potentially toxic to the liver.
It is recommended that bodybuilders using Dianabol also incorporate a liver protectant into their daily supplement regime, and that they keep their dosages of this powerful drug in reasonable range and try to limit cycle duration to 10 weeks or less.
Dianabol can make a great addition to any cycle and is commonly stacked with all injectable steroids.
As mentioned earlier, Dianabol makes a great start to any cycle, but it is also important to note that bodybuilders frequently use it as a “bridge” between cycles and as a means to recovery from a cycle.
Here, Dianabol can be taken in a low dose (10 mg a day) during PCT or in between cycles to keep androgen levels high and to maintain strength and mass, while allowing the body’s natural testosterone levels to be regained.
Dianabol is not a very popular steroid among women bodybuilders due to the fact that it is very prone to causing harsh masculizing side effects.
Males typically use Dianabol in a dosage range of 25-100 mg a day for a period of 4-10wks, and 10 mg a day for bridging or PCT purposes for as long as needed.
Despite being one of the simplest of compounds, we have seen people make all sorts of mistakes with their Dianabol cycles.
That’s mainly because they were unaware of the risks.
Here are some of the side effects of Dbol.
Dianabol causes a lot of water retention in some people which can ultimately cause high blood pressure. A healthy diet and lifestyle can help curb this to an extent. But controlling bloat and blood pressure without using medication is one of the biggest challenges while using Dbol.
Dianabol will aromatize and can cause gynecomastia. So, you need to have a SERM like Nolvadex handy even before you begin a cycle.
Unlike slow acting injectable steroids, Gyno can manifest overnight with Dbol. So do not even consider a cycle if you don’t have a SERM or an AI with you.
Cholesterol maintenance is one of the most important aspects of Dianabol usage. It can negatively impact your HDL levels and overall cholesterol levels.
Using it repeatedly amplifies the risk of heart disease. It goes without saying that if you have poor cholesterol health, you should not use Dianabol in the first place.
We have not mentioned the common side effects like Testosterone shut down over here as that is something that comes with any anabolic steroid.
