Benefits of Anavar Cycle

Anavar is ideally a derivative of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Its chemical name is 17b-hydroxy-17a-methyl-2-oxa-5a-androstane-3-one and has anabolic/androgenic ration of 322-630:24. Its molecular weight is 306.443 g/ml at the base and is written under the molecular formula C19H30O3 . Being a 17-alpha alkylated steroid and a DHT derivative, it does not aromatize into DHT when ingested in the body.

Anavar is attributed to having low anabolic as well as androgenic properties because of which its tendency to cause side effects in its users greatly diminishes. It not only helps cut extra fat from the body along with muscle development but also helps add strength to the muscles without causing any fluid deposition in the joints. The biggest advantage of Anavar is that it does not disturb the natural testosterone level of the body upon administration. In fact it is known to keep the release of other hormones in the body also restored. They primarily include FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone), IGF-1 (Insulin like Growth Factor 1), GH (Growth Hormone), GnRH (Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone) and LHRH (Luteinizing Hormone Releasing Hormone).

The high amount of energy released after the intake of Anavar is primarily due to stimulation of phosphocreatine synthesis in the mitochondria of the muscles. It also helps burn abdominal and visceral fat in the body at a comparatively faster rate.

Another reason that makes Anavar such a preferred drug is because it is very less toxic on the liver

Cycle 1: Dianabol and Anavar Cycle

Dianabol can either be taken alone or ingested with other anabolic steroids to produce better and improved results. Here we shall be talking about Dianabol and Anavar Cycle today. It primarily has two parts – The beginner’s cycle and the advanced cycle.

Beginners Cycle

The required quantity for this cycle is 10 mg of 100 tablets of Anavar,5 mg of 200 tablets of Dianabol and 50 g of 24 tablets of Clomid.

For the advanced cycle, the dosage should be 150 tablets of 10 mg of Anavar, 300 tablets of 5 mg of Dianabol and 36 tablets of 50 mg of Clomid.

Ideally, side effects of Dianabol are caused only if the steroid is taken in abused quantities for a very long period. Some common symptoms include high blood pressure and liver toxicity. Dianabol can be easily bought online in the form of tablets, injections and syrups with as well as without a prescription.

Cycle 2

The simplest way of taking Anavar is limiting to 50mg of Anavar a day for 8 weeks. Anavar intake should never exceed 10 weeks as the body might get immune to its effect. Some individuals, who need an extra push, can increase it up to 80 mg per day but going over that is not advised.

For best results, it works best to combine Anavar dosage with 500mg of an anabolic steroid like Equipoise for 10 weeks. To add more, one can add testosterone at the base of the cycle to get improved results. The likely dosage of the testosterone compound should not exceed 150 mg a day. This is an ideal Anavar dosage for men. In women, Anavar intake should be restricted to not more than 10 mg a day.

Unlike other strong anabolic steroids, Anavar does not cause any water retention in the joints in the cutting phases which make it comparatively less painful. It does not aromatize into estrogen when administered in the body which makes it the most preferred drug during the pre-competition purposes. Along with gain in muscle strength, Anavar is highly employed by bodybuilders the world over for quality increase in muscle tissue. It is primarily used to keep the muscle hard and tightened.

The benefits of combination - Equipoise and Testosterone

This greatly anabolic and moderately androgenic steroid has an anabolic/androgenic ratio of 100:50. It has the molecular weight of 286.4132 g/mol at base and can be detected over a interval of four to five months and has an active life of nearly 14-16 days. the chemical formula of equipoise is C19H26O and its chemical name is 1,4-androstadiene-3-one,1 7b-ol). Cheaper than Deca Durabolin, Equipoise is admired for promoting muscle mass, aggression, and corpse strength. This execution enhancing medication does not result in excess water retention and aromatization. Equipoise is also useful for improving appetite and is rated very highly as a superior bulking cycle steroid. Equipoise is as anabolic and half androgenic as Testosterone and gets converted to Dihydronandrolone (DHN), a very peaceful androgen in comparison to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
This anabolic androgenic steroid stimulates the release of erythropoietin in the kidneys and promotes the count of red blood cells and the percentage of red blood cells (hemoglobin and Hematocrit) that translates into greater “pumps” during intense workouts.

If that was not all, muscle mass and corpse strength gains made with Equipoise (Boldenone Undeclynate) are more pronounced than with any other steroid or performance enhancing medication. Use of this steroid, for a period of six to ten weeks, is usually associated with promotion of solid, meaty muscle fiber when complemented with intense workouts, balanced and nutritious diet, and healthy lifestyle. This steroid is second to none for providing slow but steady strength gains and trait muscle mass. Muscles gained with Equipoise (Boldenone Undeclynate) are very refined and solid.

Male athletes usually administer Equipoise in weekly dosages of 200-600mg for about 8-12 weeks while female athletes may use this steroid in weekly dosages of 50-125mg for 6-10 weeks. Post cycle remedy with Clomid and Nolvadex is highly recommended towards the close of or at the end of an anabolic steroid cycle involving Equipoise (Boldenone Undeclynate) as one of the steroids or the only steroid. Anti-aromatase inhibitors such as Cytadren or Arimidex may even be used for making Equipoise cycles more tolerable. The addition of HCG is also recommended for avoiding a “crash”, particularly when Equipoise is administered during large cycles.

The combination of Equipoise and Testosterone is considered ideal for experiencing sustaining improvements in terms of lean corpse mass. Equipoise is usually stacked with Winstrol (Stanozolol), Oxandrolone, Testosterone enanthate, Testosterone Cypionate and Testosterone Propionate.

Equipoise is best injected at least once per week for maintaining steady blood levels. Men may use Equipoise in weekly doses of 400-600mg while female athletes may use it in weekly doses of 50-150mg.When overdosed or abused, Equipoise can effect in condition complications such as deepening of voice, irregular menstrual cycles, unnatural hair growth, and unusual hair loss. Equipoise (Boldenone Undeclynate) abuse may also cause acne, increased frequency of erections, unnatural hair growth, oily epidermis, enlarging clitoris or penis. Use of this potent steroid should be stopped and medical assistance should be sought if side effects like red-colored spots on body or inside the mouth or nose, sore throat and/or fever, vomiting of blood, bone pain, nausea, sore tongue, swelling of feet or lower legs, uncommon bleeding, unusual weight gain, black/tarry/light-colored stools, dark-colored urine are experienced after using Boldenone Undeclynate. Abuse of Equipoise may even lead to negatively-artificial lipid profile, virilizing effects in women, high degree of water/salt retention, gynecomastia, increased hair growth, acne, aggravation of male pattern baldness, and sexual side effects. Athletes should always emphasize on rotating injection sites on a regular basis and must follow healthy administration practices to avoid irritation, infection, and abscess formation.

How to use Cytomel and HGH in bodybuilding

Cytomel is a thyroid hormone supplement that contains liothyronine. Liothyronine is a synthetic form of the hormone T3, which is naturally produced by the thyroid gland. This medication is given when the body does not produce enough of the hormone T3 on its own, a condition known as hypothyroidism.
Human growth hormone is naturally produced by the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland. There are HGH medications available by prescription for those with kidney failure, Turner's syndrome or other diseases. HGH medications, such as somatropin, humatrope, norditropin, are only not available in pill form, they come as injections. The DEA also states, " HGH is only bio available in the injectable form. The HGH molecule is too large for absorption across the lining of the oral mucosa and the hormone is digested by the stomach before absorption can occur."

Both Cytomel and HGH are hormones that are used for medical reasons to regulate growth in individuals whose bodies do not produce enough of these hormones naturally. When a person needs the medication Cytomel, she most likely has an underactive thyroid and she will gain weight, according to the Mayo Clinic. When a person needs an HGH medication, his body is not growing enough. Cytomel is liothyronine, a man-made medication designed to mimic the action of the T3 that is naturally produced by the thyroid gland. Somatropin is an injectable form of the HGH produced by the pituitary gland.

Cytomel up-regulates the beta-2 adrenergic receptors in fat tissues. In lipolysis, or the breakdown of fat in fat tissues, the enzyme HSL (hormone sensitive lipase) plays a significant part. HSL controls the rate of lipolysis. For HSL to be activated, epinephrine and nonepinephrine (catecholomines) are necessary. These catecholomines bind to the beta-2 receptors, and thus when Cytomel up-regulates the beta-receptors, there is a corresponding increase in the ability of catecholomines to activate HSL, resulting to increased lipolysis.

This drug is likewise known to increase the UCP-3 or uncoupling protein-3. This process significantly increases lipolysis. Further, Cytomel also stimulates growth hormone (GH) production, as substantiated by several studies. And since GH is a thermogenic, it contributes to this drug’s fat-burning action. This is why when athletes are using Cytomel they find no need to use HGH. With AAS use, the suppression occurs even after the therapy is stopped, sometimes in periods of weeks or months (especially in cases of long-term use). The same thing is observed during insulin intake, whereby the pancreas (the organ responsible for insulin production) ceases its production of insulin. Such is not the case with exogenous T3 hormone therapy. Several studies have concluded that thyroid therapy does not cause prolonged suppression of thyroid normal production. Thyroid function is normalized just days after medication is discontinued. In other words, there is no thyroid shutdown due to T3 supplementation; there is only a down-regulation of thyroid output during therapy.

Side effects of this class of drug include tachycardia and atrial arrhythmia, bone resorption, and loss of lean muscle tissue. Secondary side effects include insomnia, diarrhea, and nausea. These adverse reactions are highly possible if the user takes high dosages. Notice that some of its major side effects relate to the cardiovascular system. This is because thyroid hormones have significant effects on cardiac structures (including cardiac muscles) and systems that alter cardiovascular hemodynamics. Hyperthyroidism increases virtually all cardiac functions including heart rate and contractility, diastolic relaxation, and rate of ventricular pressure development. This results to an increased cardiac output by as much as 250 percent. These physiological changes are (most likely) the consequences of an increase in the expression of ATP and a decrease in the expression of ATP’s inhibitor, phospholamban.

Another drawback of Cytomel is its catabolic ability. When Cytomel exerts this ability on stored fats, this is an asset. However, this becomes a liability when it exerts this on bones and muscles. The negative result is bone resorption and muscle wasting (mentioned above). Moreover, this drug also diminishes GH’s nitrogen retention ability (although it stimulates GH’s production, as mentioned earlier). There is consensus among Cytomel users that the dosage protocol with this drug is to ramp it up, which means you start at the lowest dosage then gradually move upward. However, there are divergent opinions on how long the ‘gradually’ part should be. There are those who say it should be every three days, and then some pharmacological studies endorse it from 1 to 2 weeks. However, the user’s tolerance level ultimately determines the time frame; that is, if the user reacts really well with Cytomel, then the dosage can gradually increase every three days. Users are advised not to ramp up and down the dosage during therapy as this causes fluctuations in hormone levels, which further results to hormonal imbalance. The more prudent practice is to taper off the dosage. The minimum daily dosage of T3 is 5mcg and the maximum is 100mcg.

Cytomel intake is not dependent on body weight or gender, but rather on the individual’s blood level. This means that females can take the same dosage volume and schedule as males.

Trenbolone - powerful anabolic steroid

Trenbolone is a very powerful steroid that has never been FDA approved for use in humans. However over time bodybuilders have realized its unique properties and powerful benefits and it has become a favourite anabolic steroid for many, despite having more harsh side effects than most other steroids. Many people would convert the pellets into an injectable form, in a rather crude and dangerous manner that would neither be safe nor sterile, and poses many risks.

Trenbolone is a highly androgenic steroid, with binding to the Androgen Receptor (AR) in the region of three times as high as testosterone. It does not aromatise and so is not subject to estrogenic side effects. In addition to high androgenicity, it is also extremely anabolic too, thus is very good at building muscle mass, and retaining muscle mass in a calorie deficient mode. It is also thought that Trenbolone inhibits cortisol production directly through the glucocorticoid receptors. Trenbolone is often found to be a body transforming drug, and also can aid a little in fat loss. This may be due to the very strong binding of trenbolone to the AR, which has been postulated to be one mechanism that results in the activation of fat loss pathways, possible through direct binding to fat cells' ARs. This makes Trenbolone a favourite among bodybuilders for cutting, and in addition to these benefits, Trenbolone usually results in large increases in strength due to its high androgenic effects.

Trenbolone although not converted to estrogen, does have progesterone effects, which will be discussed further in the side effects section of this article.

Suggested Cycles / Uses
Typically today underground labs produce Trenbolone acetate (GP Tren Acetate) as 75g/ml or 100mg/ml. It is often recommended first-time users of Trenbolone to use the faster acting acetate in case the side effects become too much for the user, they can then come off of the steroid very quickly and it is out of the system much quicker than, for example, the enanthate ester. For the novice user, 75mg or 100mg every other day is advised, however due to the acetate ester being even shorter than a propionate ester and the half life 1 day or less, to both reduce sides and aid gains, it is advisable that the user (if they can bear every day injections) injects Trenbolone acetate (GP Tren Acetate) every day (ed), at 37.5-50mg ed.

More advanced users may find that taking the Trenbolone to amounts over 500mg per week has very desirable effects on strength and body composition, however note that the side effects will also increase with the increase in dose. Due to the negative effect that Trenbolone has on libido, it is not generally recommended to take trenbolone without testosterone. However, one can take trenbolone for short periods without testosterone and introduce an aid such as Proviron (Metsterolone) to help with the libido issues, along with proper extensive post cycle therapy (PCT) for recovery. A typical test-free cycle with trenbolone may include something like 600mg Primobolan per week, 400mg trenbolone enanthate per week, for 10 weeks, PCT starting 2 weeks after last injections. The enanthate ester and other similar esters of Trenbolone can be injected twice per week. Below are some example cycles using Trenbolone:

Testosterone propionate 100-150mg eod, 6-8weeks
Trenbolone acetate (GP Tren Acetate) 75-100mg eod, 6-8 weeks, PCT 4 days after last prop injection.

Testosterone enanthate 750mg per week, weeks 1-12
Trenbolone enanthate 400mg per week, weeks 1-12
Winstrol 50mg ed weeks, 8-14

Primobolan 600mg per week, weeks 1-10
Testosterone propionate 200mg eod weeks 1-12
Trenbolone enanthate 400mg per week, weeks 1-10

Primobolan 600mg per week, weeks 1-10
Trenbolone enanthate 400mg per week, weeks 1-10
Testosterone enanthate 1000mg per week, weeks 1-12
Trenbolone enanthate 500-700mg per week, weeks 1-12
Anavar 80-100mg ed, weeks 1-14

Very advanced/pre-contest:
Testosterone propionate 100-200mg ed
Trenbolone acetate 75-100mg ed
Masteron 400-600mg per week
Winstrol 50mg ed
Primobolan 600mg per week
Halotestin 10-20mg ed

Trenbolone (GP Tren Acetate) is the one that should be used with extreme caution and only after plenty of research into its side effects and common cycles have been carried out. Trenbolone side effects can be very bad to many users, so much so that they will not use it despite its very positive effects on the body and strength. Firstly, as Trenbolone is so androgenic, all side effects that are seen with strong androgen's can be expected (if prone) with Trenbolone. If one is prone to male pattern baldness (MPB) than Trenbolone will likely speed this up. Some users find acne on Trenbolone worse than when on any other steroid. Certainly Trenbolone is not recommended for female users due to its strong androgenic properties and the common side effects that manifest themselves in females who use strong androgens.

Despite the fact that Trenbolone cannot aromatise, due to the progesterone route it can cause things like gynecomastia, but this will only really happen in the presence of estrogen. This does happen though in many users, as Trenbolone is usually stacked with a testosterone, which obviously can and will convert to estrogen. Gynecomastia from Trenbolone can be quite bad many will find, however if you do not suffer from this than other estrogen side effects should not be of worry, as Trenbolone does not cause any water retention or similar, but in fact often gives a hardened look and feel to the muscles.

Trenbolone also seems to give many users poor sleep patterns and insomnia. In addition, it can cause severe sweating in many, both during the night time and also just from doing the smallest of activities such as walking up stairs, etc. It also can impair to a certain degree, cardiovascular function, which means that it is not ideal for use in those who regular partake in such sports or activity that require a decent level of cardiovascular fitness.

Trenbolone also increases blood pressure in many users, some to such a degree that they have to cease using it. Thus it is recommended that one who wishes to use trenbolone, invests in a blood pressure monitor so they can regularly measure their blood pressure and keep an eye on it throughout the cycle.

Many people claim that Trenbolone has a negative effect on the kidneys. There are many of these claims certainly across the Internet since its use has become more widespread. However, there is no real evidence for these claims, and certainly many long-term users of Trenbolone have kidney function tests that are well within the normal range. Perhaps the reason for this theory is the fact that when using Trenbolone, many find that their urine can become a much darker more orange-brown colour. However, this is due to the fact that Trenbolone undergoes very little modification or breakdown and is excreted as a rust-colored oxidised form in the urine. In addition to this, any damage to kidney may not even be directly due to the Trenbolone, but more to do with the increased sweating and water loss from excessive body heat whilst on Trenbolone, without the sufficient addition of water intake. Thus it is recommended if running Trenbolone to keep the water intake high.

As Trenbolone is such a strong steroid, it is very harsh on the HTPA axis and will shut down the body's natural testosterone production very easily and, for many, very harshly. It is comparable that people can experience with Deca, and longer cycles may need to include the use of HCG to restore one's own natural production of testosterone. Recovery from cycles containing Trenbolone is not easy, and requires a very well thought out and stringent PCT routine and diet.

It has also been suggested through research that Trenbolone actually (although aiding slightly in fat loss) reduces endogenous T3 levels. Thus some advocate the use of 25mcg T3 throughout a Trenbolone cycle.
