Abdominals - Lower Ab Workouts
Tumblr media
A well-toned and defined lower ab reflects lean fit body. It is the result of hard graft in the gym as well as cardio training and proper nutrition. Together, they all produce strong abdominals and low body-fat levels.
Well-defined abdominals are mainly the product of low body-fat levels, which explains why even untrained people can possess washboard abs. If you are after a rippling six-pack, you need to reduce your abdominal fat layer for the muscles to show through. Increasing their size alone through exercise will not be enough. For these muscles to become visible, men need below 10-12% body fat and women need below 15-18% body fat - ranges that are below those considered healthy among the general population but which, are compatible with improved sports performance.
Strong abdominals help you perform virtually every strength-training exercise and sports movement, improving core stability. Abdominal training is also important for the prevention of lower-back injuries, since these muscles help stabilize the pelvis which, in turn, helps maintain proper spine alignment. You should add a lower-back exercise such as back extensions to your abdominal routine to help balance abdominal strength.
Gadgets and machines are unnecessary ­ you can develop great abdominals from the basic exercises that require nothing more than the floor and perhaps a bench or bar. The secret to effective abdominal exercising is mental focus and technique. You should concentrate on each part of the movement, keeping it slow and controlled. That is most important. The most common error people do is to perform the movements too fast, aiming for a high number of repetitions. High repetitions will only build endurance. They will not work the important FT muscle fibres that give your abdominals visible shape, nor will they increase definition or melt away fat.
The abdominals are the same as any other muscle and should be trained in the same fashion: no more than every other day and no more than 12-15 repetitions per set. So slow down, visualize your abdominals working and focus on feeling the contraction through the full range of motion. When it starts to hurt (not to be confused with actual pain), take a short rest; then complete the exercise or move on to the next.
The drawback with many exercise programmes is that they isolate muscles, training them in ways that are not related to sports or everyday activities. For example, abdominal training is typically performed lying face-up on the floor with the knees bent. But no sport or activity requires you to be in this position. Similarly, using an arm curl machine in the gym trains your biceps independently of all the other muscles you would use to stabilize, and control your arm in everyday life. But the power needed, say, when sprinting for the ball in a football match is actually generated in the core of the body and transferred out to the pumping arms.
Back strain?
Weak abdominals are often associated with back problems. This is because slack abdominal muscles can become overstretched which, when combined with tight hip flexors (connecting the thigh bone to the lower vertebrae), cause the pelvis tilt forwards (lordosis) creating an excessive arch in lower back and potential back pain. Strong abdominals support and stabilize the pelvis and lower back. Strengthening these muscles (and stretching the hip flexors) will eliminate excessive arching in the lower back, give good posture and minimize potential back problems.
Core Stability
'Core stability' describes the ability to control and link the upper- and lower-body movements and postures. It involves exercises that' mimic your sport or activity and training movements. Pilates is one of the best-known stability programmes and tends not to use much equipment. Others involve exercising from an unstable base such as a wobble board or Swiss ball, which place a higher demand on the deep muscles in the core - or trunk - as well as on your motor control system because you constantly have to stabilize yourself as the ball or board rolls around. It also changes, the way your neuromuscular system coordinates movement as you're using your legs to hold you up and your abdominals and back to keep your whole body stable. Doing, abdominal exercises on a ball therefore works the muscles more effectively and more emphasis is placed on the obliques and transverse abdominis.
Repetitions
Training for muscle growth involves performing 8-12 reps.
What Are Good Abdominal Exercises?
The upper abdominal exercises and lower abdominal muscles are not really separate muscles and as such cannot truly be isolated by a single abdominal exercise, exercises stress the whole abdominal region. However, some exercises will tend towards developing upper abdominal muscles and some towards developing lower abdominal muscles. Good Abdominal exercises are those exercises which give the results fast (i.e. give shape to your abdominals fast) and are easy to do. Some of these good abdominal exercises are listed below.
What's the best way to build Abdominal Muscles?
This is the most frequently asked question.
Abdominal muscles are the most wanted muscles by any male or female.
Usually, abdominal questions are followed by a comment such as, "I do 100 sit-ups a day and I'm not seeing any results." This article will outline the information you will need to improve your abdominal muscles.
The abdominal region musculature is made up of many different muscles and groups. To target the entire abdominal region we must concentrate on each of these muscle and groups and prescribe exercises for each of them, which correspond to improving not only shape of the body but also their working.
Exercises are extremely important. They are not only important for keeping the abdominals in good shape but are otherwise also important to keep the body fit and fine. Everyone has abdominal muscles, however, most of the population never sees them due to their fat stomachs. The solution for viewing their abdominal muscles is simply a good abdominal region conditioning program coupled with a fat loss tips and nutritional tips. If you want to see your abdominal region the fat has to be decreased.
By making a couple of adjustments to your current diet and cutting calories you can have those abdominal muscles which you wanted from years back. In addition to this you have to follow a well planned exercise program. You will be getting all these just in couple of weeks or months if you follow the program sincerely.
Now these are some of the abdominal exercises which will enhance your exercise program of building up abdominal muscles.
Exercises for your Abdominal Workouts
Crunch.
Swiss Ball Crunch.
Reverse Crunch.
Oblique Crunch.
Side Crunch.
Hanging Leg Raise.

Advanced Steroid Cycles (Cycle №2: Cutting)
Tumblr media
Advanced Cycle #1-1 Advanced cycles are very different from intermediate and beginners cycles. This is because by the time a bodybuilder or athlete has reached the level where they could be rightly called advanced. They´ve probably reached a point in their career where they are very able to identify the compounds which work best fort them, as well as the dosages they respond best to. In fact, that´s almost what I would consider the defining characteristic of an advanced steroid user. Advanced users have typically done a decent amount of steroids, and know what dosages they´ll need to use in order to achieve their goals. I think in order to be considered an advanced steroid user, you must meet certain criteria:eulogy
You´ve done over 5 cycles You´ve stacked 2 steroids and one other drug (an anti-estrogen, Clen, etc...) in one cycle You´ve done cycles for at least 2 different reasons (i.e. cutting, bulking, strength gain, etc& ) You´ve done Post Cycle Therapy and kept more than 50% of your gains
Most of my recommendations for considering yourself an advanced steroid user are self-explanatory. The only one that I think merits additional comment is the last one. Basically, my worry here is that no matter how many cycles you´ve done, if you´re losing half of your gains from each cycle, then you have a lot of work to do to figure out what you´re doing wrong after your cycles end. There´s really no way around that fact & if you´re not keeping half of your gains, then something is going wrong when you end your cycles. Before you jump into an advanced cycle, with multiple compounds and drugs, you need to get your post cycle in order. If you´re losing more than half your gains from every cycle... then something isn´t in check. You aren´t an advanced steroid user you´ve just used a lot of them. But, if you keep most of your gains from each cycle, and meet the other 3 criteria for being advanced, then this cycle is for you! Here´s a sample of an advanced bulking cycle:
Tumblr media
I´ll be honest and say that this cycle isn´t going to really "need" a couple of things that are typically seen with cutting cycles. First of all, if you take a close look at this cycle, you´ll see that the doses are low to moderate. Why is that? Well, if you´re taking in less than maintenance level calories, then you actually need less androgens, as your body will actually be far more sensitive to them.
Also, if you really examined the cycle above, you´ll probably have already noticed that only one of the compounds being used (the testosterone) will be able to convert (aromatize) into estrogen. So, in this case, the Arimidex is being included just to help get rid of a little estrogen, and make you look a little dryer on the cycle. If you should choose to include more testosterone (hey, it´s your cycle!), then you´ll still be fine. If you´re trying to get as ripped and dry as possible, then your diet is going to have to be as clean as possible, and you may consider substituting the Arimidex out for some Letrozole for the last 6 weeks. Any longer than that, while on a reduced calorie diet, and you may be running the risk of immune problems or joint pains. Letrozole can be nasty on your cholesterol too, so as I said, only include it if you must.
Now, taking a closer look at the Testosterone component of this cycle, we know that it is both anabolic as well as highly androgenic, and tends to be used in almost everyone´s off-season mass cycle. As I´m sure you already know, water retention related to testosterone with this ester is typically very low, which is why it´s included in this cycle. In a cutting cycle, testosterone is always a great base, not only for it´s anabolic properties, but because it´s a very strong androgen, and in a calorie deprived state will help keep your mood elevated.
The next drug in this cycle is Trenbolone Acetate - a very anabolic and very androgenic form of 19-nortestosterone. This stuff is rated as being both 5x as anabolic and 5x as androgenic as testosterone. Although it´s a bit deceiving to say it´s 5x as anabolic - because realistically, it won´t put 5x as much muscle on you as an equivalent dose of testosterone- it is a very potent drug. The really great thing about Trenbolone on a diet is that you see results almost daily with it. Sadly, it affects many people´s ability to comfortably do Cardio, but that´s the way it goes. Fortunately, since it´s such a potent androgen, you´ll remain aggressive and strong in the gym. That, of course, is a huge benefit on a cutting cycle. Since it´s also a progestin, it can cause sexual dysfunction which is another great reason to be using testosterone in this cycle. Tren binds very strongly to the Anabolic Receptor- which may possibly aid in fat loss with it.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate also has a reasonable bind to the AR, but also has appreciable benefits for your joints- so it may be substituted for Tren if that´s an issue, but probably not used alongside it with any appreciable synergy. And of course, using either of those without Testosterone would kill your sex life.
The final anabolic steroid that makes up this cycle is Masteron, which is a highly androgenic injectable steroid that is derived from DHT (Dihydrotestosterone). Masteron does not aromatize (convert) to estrogen and in fact will help combat estrogenic sides. Of course this will aid in getting rid of some water, and since it´s DHT derived, many people find it also helps their mood on cutting cycles.
To cap off my reasoning for including Masteron, it has a receptor binding ability well above that of testosterone and Tren, due to it's being DHT-derived, which should give you a nice fat-burning effect and also give it a nice strength building component. You´ll also notice I´ve included a kickstart to this cycle, before the switch over to Masteron. For a kickstart to a cutting cycle, I think Anavar at 50mgs/day is optimum. I like the use of an oral at the beginning to see immediate results and then you can switch over to Masteron - actually I´ve included a slight overlap- after the initial results from the Anavar begin to plateau. The beauty of an "advanced" cycle is that it´s flexible. You know what your body can handle better than me, so please, modify this cycle as you need to. I like including Remember, this is your cycle, although I´d like you to follow my blueprint as closely as possible. If you need to, however, Winstrol may be a good substitution for the Anavar, dosed the same. In fact, since Winstrol binds very poorly to the androgen receptor, it may even provide some additional synergy with the Tren, which binds very strongly.
Lets be honest here& this cycle will suppresses your natural hormonal function quickly and severely. So I´m going to suggest that while the advanced user will be able to lose a ton of fat on this cycle (with a proper diet), as well as maintain most of their muscle mass, if not add some more. And of course, I´m hoping you use the PCT that I´ve written about both online as well as in my book. But remember, I´ve included as one requirement of being considered advanced, that you know how to keep at least half your gains from a given cycle. So hopefully that PCT, along with this cycle will leave you with a nice and permanent gain in leanness.

Cutting-Shredding Body-Fat
Tumblr media
One of the best ways to get lean is to increase your muscle mass. The more mass on your body, the easier it will be to burn calories and create a deficit which will force your body to pull from its fat stores. An interesting note about body-fat or what scientists like to call, “adipocytes”, is that adipocytes like aromatase. They house it and help produce it. Does that mean the fatter you are, the more estrogen your body will convert from the anabolic steroids you use? Probably.
In any case, body-fat and estrogen are good buddies. We want to disrupt their relationship as much as possible so that we can get both of them to move out of our space. Our rental space where we keep our shredded muscle and veins. After all, muscle just doesn’t look as good when it has layers of fat and water over it. No veins, no sharp division between muscle groups, no abs, no girls and no head turns.
Fat-loss is something I know a tremendous deal about, from both background knowledge from school and applied knowledge on myself, hundreds of clients, and many friends. Fat loss with the aid of juice is something I know even more about.
Alright friends, how do we use juice to help us get shredded. Well, continuing with our point from above about estrogen and body-fat, we want to create an environment and metabolism that has very little of both. Enter non-aromatizing anabolic steroids. 
Here are your primary choices:
Trenbolone
Primobolan
Winstrol
Masteron
Secondary choices
(these drugs sometimes aromatize slightly depending on your genes, but usually not enough to make them inefficient dieting drugs)
Halotestin
Equipoise
Deca Durabolin
The possible drug combinations for a legitimate cutting cycle are numerous. One of the best ways to go about a good cutting cycle is to plan out the weeks ahead. If you are a competitive physique athlete, you know how to do this, if you aren’t this might be a little new.
You can keep some drugs in the program that do aromatize. At least, in the beginning. Lets say you plan on dieting for ten weeks. For the first four, you can still use aromatizing anabolics. You won’t know for sure until you’ve attempted to get lean with drugs a few times over. The less prone you are to estrogenic side affects and water bloat, the longer you can use aromatizing drugs in your cutting arsenal.
If you are very susceptible to these effects, you will have to use non-aromatizing androgens for the entire course along with anti-estrogens in order to maximize the rate and extent of your fat-loss. Nobody wants slow fat loss. Especially when dieting strictly and correctly. We are battling hormones as well as general calories.
In many cases where people have difficulty with estrogen, they have difficulty with fat loss. Whether you are susceptible or not, here is the quickest way to lose body-fat with the assistance of anabolic steroids.
First, you need to find your ant-estrogens. I would use at least two, one from each main category, even if you do not typically struggle with water and estrogen while juicing.
My recommendations are Proviron, and Arimidex if you are not susceptible, and if you are, Proviron and Nolvadex.  The difference is that both Proviron and Arimidex will wipe out the aromatase enzyme where nolvadex occupies the receptor site and blocks the estrogen molecules from hooking up with the receptor. If you are susceptible, you always have a decent amount of estrogen floating around and you will need a drug that immediately blocks estrogen from wreaking havoc on your physique-Nolvadex.
If you are not susceptible, you just want to make sure that whatever little estrogen you have in your system stays low to non-existent. You do this by taking anti-estrogens that kill the maker of estrogen, the aromatase enzyme. Arimidex is excellent for binding up this enzyme.
Okay, we have our anti-estrogens in place, back to juice. Trenbolone is great. As potent as Test and no estrogen or water. Great retention of your hard eared strength and muscle mass as well. Just over 200mg a week of any form should do it. Over 400mg would be unnecessary. Tren usually comes in 75mg strength, give or take a few milligrams. So you will need a minimum of three cc’s a week and upwards of five.
Equipoise is great at around 400mg a week if you are not susceptible to estrogenic effects. With the previous mentioned anti-estrogens, you will probably not have to worry. The Equipoise adds a nice vascularity enhancing component to your cycle. Your veins should come out more and more as you get lean and will be accentuated by the Equipoise. The nitrogen retaining affect will also help protect your muscle tissue as you add more cardio and decrease your calories.
Anavar works great to aid in strength retention. The more strength you retain while dieting, the less muscle you lose. Anavar has also been shown in studies to specifically aid fat-loss from the intra-abdominal region. It is also associated with an increase in cholesterol profile, raising your HDLs (good cholesterol) and lowering your LDLs (bad cholesterol). Don’t forget the creatine phosphate storage effect of the anavar. This will help keep your muscle bellies a little more full so that you don’t have that flat muscle look as you decrease your carbs. Anavar is a little tough to find sometimes but it is worth it. A decently high dose is needed to get this affect when dieting. At least 15mg and preferably between 20-30mg per day while dieting.
Oral Winstrol is great when dieting if you can afford to take enough. Around 30-50mg per day will greatly enhance your body’s ability to retain muscle at the expense of burning body-fat. Realize, I did not say Winstrol will burn body-fat. It will help shift your metabolism in favor of fat-loss. If you diet well and do your cardio, the Winstrol will aid your body in allowing the deficit of calories to only be pulled from fat, and not muscle.
Realize that there are two orals in this dieting regimen. This is just an example. You can pick any number of combos. Just be sure to give it thought by way of drug mechanism of action, and interaction (synergy) as we’ve said before. The above example is a great cutting regimen for general purposes. Two orals ran together at a sane dosage for ten weeks once or twice a year should be fine on your liver, as long as you are respecting your liver the rest of the year. I am not talking about those who go out drinking three nights a week while trying to get lean. If you are going to do this at all, reserve your liver for filtering drugs that have a purpose. Remember that this is hypothetical and for information purposes only.

Three Best Oral Steroids
Tumblr media
The Three Best Oral Steroids Are:
The King of the orals is clearly Anadrol
Knight in Shining Armor is Anavar
The Court Jester is Winstrol
These are 3 of the most popular oral steroids. They work for losing fat or building muscle. Of course to do that you have to be eating to grow or eating to cut, but ignorant people refuse to accept this. The common misconception is if you take these you will just get bigger. Truth is if you were already lifting and eating a stable, not necessarily good, just stable diet. where every day is the same amount of calories at the same times of day with the same foods then with these drugs you would lose fat and perhaps build some muscle.
Oral Cutters
As a class these cutters work in a very similar way. As a Modified DHT molecule all will inhibit the aromatase enzyme as they cannot be enzymatically converted to estrogen. This will stop the enzyme from converting other aromatizable steroids to estrogen and ultimately result in a dryer look. DHT will cause water and amino acids to draw into the cell causing fuller muscles and when combined with dryer skin an even greater dry look. And again DHT will bind to the SHBG molecule bumping off free test and estrogen. when this estrogen is destroyed there is not very little estrogen left in the body and you get a dryer look!
Nope not done! DHT binds to fat cells directly and cause fat to be burned. And you get a dryer look. In some people DHT causes hair loss. It either does, or it doesn’t. And if it does you were going to lose all your hair anyway.
DHT And The Central Nervous System
DHT binds to nervous cells and causes excitation. This causes an increase of intensity of emotions. So if your a violent you might “roid rage”. If your a lover not a fighter then you might get in trouble in a different sense. It increases strength because of how it excites the nervous system’s activation of muscle contraction. It increases sexual performance in men and definitely in women.
DHT does not increase muscle mass directly like testosterone does but since these oral steroids are chemically modified versions of DHT they do survive inside the cell, and in theory, could cause DNA transcription. These modified versions of DHT do not have a high binding affinity to the androgen receptor so likely their muscle building effects are through their anti catabolic function not a direct anabolic function. In other words it’s the blocking of the cortisol receptor not the binding of the androgen receptor that matters. And nowI present the cortisol inhibiting differences of:
Anadrol vs. Anavar vs. Winstrol
Although these 3 steroids are all very popular modifications on a DHT molecule and are well known for their “anti-cortisol “ properties all three function in different ways and have different properties attributed to them.
Anadrol or Oxymetholone: The King
Anadrol has the reputation for some serious side effects. It, like the others, is a modified DHT molecule which won’t break down in the muscle cell. It has direct androgen receptor activation effects despite a low binding affinity. What makes It so interesting is people think it’s a bulking drug despite it being a cutter. The reason is that a metabolite of Anadrol causes indirect estrogenic effects which would look like fat gain and water retention but only on a crappy diet.
Anadrol does do more liver damage than any other oral steroid. It causes water retention but most of that is in the muscle to get the biggest fascia stretching effect. This is why Anadrol is the go to oral to get the best workout pump. Anadrol has a reputation for the best increase in strength but so do the other two drugs covered here. Anadrol knocks cortisol off the muscle and blocks the receptor so you can’t lose muscle from training to hard.
Anavar or Oxandrolone: The Knight
This is probably the safest and best one of all. It is so safe on the liver that it is used to treat liver damage, and does the standard things that DHT does but also has some other great properties. For one it antagonizes the cortisol receptor on muscle. This means instead of cortisol binding to muscle mid workout or on a low carb diet anavar binds and protects the muscle from cortisol. This puts more cortisol into circulation to improve joint pain. It upregulates T3 uptake by 20% increasing your metabolism directly. It also increases ketogenesis so its a great agent for carb back loading and for keto diets.
Winstrol or Stanozolol: The Jester
Winstrol Is known for causing dry and painful joints. More so than the other orals mentioned. It’s used for cutting since it is believed to produce a dry look. It’s anti-cortisol mechanism seems to be based on not only bumping cortisol off its receptor and into circulation but also stopping production of cortisol at the adrenal gland. This is clearly different from the other drugs mentioned. This lack of cortisol is likely the cause of the painful joints athletes report. Clearly some cortisol is needed for the anti-inflammatory applies on joints to actually continue lifting.

GP Nolva (Nolvadex) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals
Tumblr media
GP Nolva is an post cycle steroid and is made by Geneza Pharmaceuticals. The active substance is Tamoxifen Citrate.
GP Nolva (Nolvadex) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is probably the most popular ancillary drug for male steroid users who wish to avoid the estrogen like effects caused by the use of anabolic steroids. Tamoxifen Citrate binds to estrogen receptors thus blocking the hormones action on target tissues and achieving an anti-estrogenic effect.
Also worth noting is the fact that GP Nolva (Nolvadex) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is an estrogen agonist in the liver and is capable of mimicking estrogen in this organ. At first glance you may wonder why this could be considered a good thing, however, when you realize that estrogen positively effects HDL (good) cholesterol values in the liver its value in this instance becomes obvious. As you know, steroid use tends to suppress HDL levels and raise LDL levels significantly leading to increased cholesterol levels and cardiac risk. Adding GP Nolva (Nolvadex) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals may therefore form a protective function in this case, although it certainly does not save the liver from all the other hazards involved with the use of c-17 alpha alkylated orals.
Tamoxifen Citrate is a selective estrogen receptor modulator. Selective estrogen receptor modulators can act as estrogen receptor agonists or antagonists. This activity of Tamoxifen Citrate is tissue selective, effecting those estrogen receptors located in the liver, breast, and bone. When the Tamoxifen molecule binds to this receptor, the estrogen is blocked and can not have any influence, thereby remaining inactive in that tissue. By doing so, an "anti-estrogenic" effect is achieved. The drug was developed and still used to treat breast cancer. It is often used as a first option due to its mild nature in comparison to aromatase inhibitors. Of course one would want to use the mildest compound possible when dealing with estrogen levels in women, but one could afford to be more aggressive in dealing with male strength athletes or bodybuilders.
In terms of its use in steroid users, GP Nolva (Nolvadex) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals can help in two ways. Firstly due to the binding affinity of the compound it is able to help in the prevention of gynocomastia. GP Nolva (Nolvadex) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals will compete with estrogen for the estrogen receptors in certain tissues, including the breast, and if it can bind to the receptor estrogen will not have an opportunity to interact with receptor and therefore gynocomastia should not be able to develop. When using anabolic steroids that can convert to estradiol (estrogen) this protection against gynocomastia can be invaluable. However it should be noted that Tamoxifen Citrate will not eliminate the estrogen or disallow the conversion to occur. Instead it attempts to counteract the effects of circulating estrogen in the body in those tissues that the drug effects.
Therefore there is no evidence that GP Nolva (Nolvadex) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals has any effects counteracting etrogenic side effects that are unrelated to the tissues that are not in the breast, liver or bone. Namely there is no real causal connection to any reduction in water retention and acne in users that begin taking tamoxifen citrate as it relates to estrogen.
The second, and possibly more beneficial, aspect of GP Nolva (Nolvadex) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals for steroid users is its ability to increase the production of luteinizing hormone and follicle stimulating hormone, and therefore increasing testosterone. This ability is why it is often used by steroid users during their post-cycle therapy. There are numerous studies that indicate that Tamoxifen Citrate can increase the levels of these hormones quite dramatically. GP Nolva (Nolvadex) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals does this by blocking the negative feedback inhibition caused by estrogen at the hypothalamus and pituitary, and this in turn will help to increase the production of these hormones. Unlike clomiphine citrate, tamoxifen citrate has also been shown to increase luteinizing hormone responsiveness to gonadotropin releasing hormone. Clomiphine Citrate can lower this responsiveness over time.
In terms of dosing for combating gynocomastia that has begun to form, there is very little research. The limited research that does exist does point to the fact that doses of 20-40 mgs per day are effective in treating the existing condition. However, anecdotally users have reported sometimes using doses of 60-80 mgs per day. These doses may have more to do with users impatience rather than the need for higher doses, as no research indicates that such doses are needed. It should be noted as well however that GP Nolva (Nolvadex) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals may have no effect on existing gynocomastia in some individuals. Many users have indicated that the compound will only help alleviate symptoms if the gynocomstia has not been apparent for a long period of time. Of course, this is all subjective and the effectiveness of the drug can only be determined on a trial and error basis.
For use during post-cycle therapy users have anecdotally indicated that doses ranging between 20 and 40 mgs per day are average. These doses have been shown to significantly raise levels of testosterone, luteinizing hormone and follicle stimulating hormone. Most users have reported when using GP Nolva (Nolvadex) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals for their post-cycle therapy they will administer the drug for a minimum of three weeks. A maximum length has not necessarily been established due to the few side effects associated with the compound. In this case, this compound can be run for as long as wanted with little to no concern being needed to be paid to potential side effects. See the below section for more details.
Some users have used GP Nolva (Nolvadex) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals for the purpose of helping raise their HDL (good) cholesterol values. In theory it is thought that since the compound is an estrogen agonist in the liver and therefore is capable of activating the estrogen receptor and mimicking the actions of the hormone in the organ that it may help improve cholesterol levels as estrogen does. However this effect is rather slight and won’t significantly improve a user’s HDL levels very noticeably at all. This is especially true when one factors in the dramatic effect that most anabolic steroids have on these levels. For this reason, GP Nolva (Nolvadex) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals should not be relied upon for this purpose.
One of the possible side effects associated with use of GP Nolva (Nolvadex) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is the possible reduction of insulin-like growth factor levels. If these levels are reduced this could suppress the gains an individual can make slightly. However this reduction, if it actually exists, would not be overly significant with gains in muscle mass only being marginally reduced for the most part.
Another effect of use of GP Nolva (Nolvadex) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals may be vision problems. Recently, there has been some information from researchers that indicates corneal, retinal and optic nerve abnormalities seen in patients using the drug could be related to its use. Anecdotally a small number of steroid users have reported that they have suffered from visual problems while using this drug as well. After discontinuation of the drug these symptoms seemingly dissipate. However there is simply not enough research on the subject to know whether permanent damage could occur. More research needs to be conducted.
Other than these concerns, there is little in the way that long-term use of GP Nolva (Nolvadex) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals could cause damage to in the human body. It is seemingly safe in terms of possible effects to the body’s hormonal production, other than the one relating to insulin-like growth factor, and endocrine system. For the vast majority of users the compound is relatively side effect free and well tolerated.

GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals
Tumblr media
GP Prima 100 is an injectable steroid made by Geneza Pharmaceuticals, this steroid is aslo known as Primobolan.
GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is the injectable version of the steroid methenolone and, although it produces a weaker effect than Deca Durabolin it is a very good basic steroid whose effects are predominantly anabolic. The fact that an enanthate ester is added to this steroid enables a slow and gradual release from the injection site. This addition allows for a longer half-life of approx 14 days (similar to Testosterone Enanthate) although most athletes prefer to administer it on a weekly basis.
GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals popularity stems from the fact that it is the only steroid that seems to work well on a low calorie diet (making it a pre-contest drug of choice) and side effects are rarely a problem since it is relatively non toxic, low in androgens and it does not convert to estrogen (aromatize) therefore estrogen related side effects are not an issue. In addition to this it seems to have a positive effect on the immune system (thus its popular use in Aids patients) and the fact that it adds primarily lean mass leads to a strengthening of the whole body system.
GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is commonly used by those who wish to keep oestrogen and androgenic related side effects to a minimum. GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is also a popular choice for cutting cycles due its mild anabolic properties which may be best suited for sustaining muscle tissue under strict pre-content dieting. Excessive subcutaneous fluids will also not be a concern due to GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals being a non-aromatising steroid. The compound could also be added to bulking cycles to heighten the anabolic nature of the cycle whilst minimising adding to the overall oestrogen and androgenic side effects.
Androgenic related side effects are usually only confined to the sensitive individuals, or those who opt to take the larger dosages of the product. GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is often regarded as a safe steroid in comparison to other products, and it is a very sought after product which reflects in its cost. A dose of 400 mg a week has been shown to provide decent gains, but higher doses are common, with many claiming 600 - 800 mg a week will provide a much better yield in muscle size whilst not causing too much in terms of side effects. As we rise the dose we can expect the androgenic side effects to become more pronounced, so its down to the user to see what dose provides fruitful when weighing up the side effects to net positive gains.
GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is often stacked with other steroids to provide more pleasing results to the user. During a cutting cycle the product could be stacked with a non-aromatising androgen to aid muscle hardness whilst keeping a very defined look with little water retention. Others may find primobolan a nice compound to add to their usual Testosterone course to add to the anabolic nature of the cycle, whilst not adding too much to side effects. This may be useful for those who have found their tolerance dosage with Testosterone but wish to add another compound to their stack to aid gains.
GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals displays many favorable characteristics, most which stem from the fact that methenolone does not convert to estrogen. Estrogen linked side effects should therefore not be seen at all when administering this steroid. Sensitive individuals need not worry about developing gynecomastia, nor should they be noticing any water retention with this drug. The increase seen with GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals will be only quality muscle mass, and not the smooth bloat which accompanies most steroids open to aromatization. During a cycle the user should additionally not have much trouble with blood pressure values, as this effect is also related (generally) to estrogen and water retention. At a moderate dosage of 100 - 200 mg weekly, GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals should also not interfere with endogenous testosterone levels as much as when taking an injectable nandrolone or testosterone. This is very welcome, as the athlete should not have to be as concerned with ancillary drugs when the steroid is discontinued (a less extreme hormonal crash). At higher doses strong testosterone suppression may be noticed however, as all steroids can act to suppress testosterone production at a given dosage. Here of course an ancillary drug regimen may be indicated.
It is most popular for male bodybuilders to stack GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals with other steroids in order to obtain a faster and more enhanced effect. During a dieting or cutting phase, a non-aromatizing androgen like Halotestin or Trenbolone can be added. The strong androgenic component should help to bring about an added density and hardness to the muscles. On the other hand we could add Winstrol, another mild anabolic steroid. The result of this combination should again be a notable increase of muscle mass and hardness, but in this case the gain should not be accompanied by greatly increased side effects. As mentioned earlier, GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is also used effectively during bulking phases of training. The addition of testosterone, Dianabol or Anadrol 50 would prove quite effective for adding new muscle mass. Of course we would have to deal with estrogenic side effects, but in such cases GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals should allow the user to take a much lower dosage of the more "toxic" drug and still receive acceptable results.
Side effects in general are usually not much of a problem with GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals. There is a chance to notice a few residual androgenic effects such as oily skin, acne, increased facial/body hair growth or an aggravation of male pattern baldness condition. This steroid is still very mild however, and such problems are typically dose related. Women will in fact find this preparation mild enough to use in most cases, observing it to be a very comfortable and effective anabolic. GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals is actually considered to be one of the safest anabolic steroids available. Steroid novices, older athletes or those sensitive to side effects would undoubtedly find it a very favorable drug to use. The typical "safe" dosage of GP Prima 100 (Primobolan) by Geneza Pharmaceuticals for men is 100 - 200 mg per week, a level that should produce at least some noticeable muscle growth.

Dianabol cycle - the guide
Tumblr media
One of the most popular oral steroids available, Dianabol has stood the test of times and remained by far one of the most popular and effective anabolic steroids used by bodybuilders on every level of the experience spectrum. Why is Dianabol so popular? This is mainly down to a few important factors; Dianabol is an oral steroid so it is very appealing to inexperienced steroids users who do not want to use injectable compounds, Dianabol is widely available, Dianabol is very cheap compared to other anabolic steroids, and most importantly - Dianabol is very effective at causing rapid gains in muscle and strength gains. Due to its massive popularity we thought it would be great to have an article that will aid anybody that wishes to embark on a Dianabol cycle.
How to take Dianabol?
Although Dianabol is available in an injectable format, it is most commonly used as an oral steroid in the form of a small tablet. Dianabol has a relatively short half life which means for a user to retain a stable blood concentration level they are best taking the daily dosage split over the course of the day. Splitting the dose of Dianabol is usually easy due to the dosage of tablets available, and it would appear beneficial to consume the dose around the time you have a meal to minimise any possible stomach upsets.
There is another school of thought which you may hear in other articles about Dianabol and on bodybuilding forums, which is to consume the full daily of dose pre workout. This method is said to have the benefit of greater drug uptake, and greater performance in the gym due to the peak in blood concentration achieved during the workout. This method sounds appealing, but we must also remember that this administration regime will cause a greater strain on the liver. This method is still used by many experienced Dianabol users however, mainly using the drug as a pre workout anabolic. For most users it would be wiser to split the dosage, however.
Dosages of a Dianabol cycle
The common dose for Dianabol is 30-50mg each day, with a cycle that would usually last between 4 and 6 weeks. 30-40mg would be an effective dose for a person that is new to Dianabol, resulting in great gains in muscle mass and strength, whilst restricting possible side effects. More experience users may wish to take a slightly higher dosage, although like most other compounds, there is a dosage level where the muscle and strength gains plateau off and the side effects heighten, resulting in a point in which it is not worth increasing the dosage. Most experienced users will rarely take a dosage over 70-80mg per day.
Experienced users may wish to stack Dianabol with other steroids that are typically used for mass cycles. Testosterone Enanthate and Deca-Durabolin, for example, with a diet high in calories and much needed nutrients for growth. Many novices start off with Dianabol as a stand alone for their first anabolic steroid cycle, however. Dianabol, a steroid that can bring about great gains in muscle mass, whilst being a widely available oral steroid, is much welcomed by the inexperienced and needle shy user.
Side effects from Dianabol
Dianabol is hepatotoxic, which means potentially harmful to the liver. Being 17 alpha-alkylated results in a much greater bioactive substance, but we must limit the dose and duration of the use of Dianabol to not cause any long term damage to the liver. This must also be kept in mind when consuming or administering any other substance that can also result on liver strain, such as Alcohol or other hepatotoxic substances.
Androgenic side effects are very possible when undertaking a Dianabol cycle, so acne and oily skin, aggressiveness and possible male pattern baldness (MPB). Androgenic side effects often depend on the user, and how prone they are to each of the side effects. If you are particularly prone to acne it would be unwise to not expect Dianabol to have the potential to cause an outbreak, for example.
Oestrogen related side effects are also possible on Dianabol, so having an anti-aromatase and anti-oestrogen would be wise incase Gynecomastia becomes apparent during the cycle. Gynecomastia is the formation of breast tissue, and is often first observed as itchy and sore nipples in its early stages.
The retention of water is a much observed characteristic of Dianabol use, with much weight gain in the initial weeks down to the water retention. This can cause a very bloated look, with users appearing puffy, especially around the neck and face resulting in a "moon face". The water retention can aid strength gains whilst on cycle by lubricating the joints somewhat, but users can expect to loose any of this water weight once the Dianabol is ceased.

Testosterone Base by Accordo RX
Tumblr media
Testosterone Base is an injectable steroid that contains testosterone with no ester attatched to it. It is pure testosterone and has no ester attached, and thus no ester calculated in the weight. Where 100 mg of a testosterone ester equals 100 mg minus the weight of the ester, 100 mg of Testosterone Base contains an actual 100 mg of the steroid. Very potent and very powerful. Although it is a rather crude compound, it is without a doubt very, very effective. Testosterone Base is the most common anabolic hormone that there is and is also considered the most basic. Due to this, bodybuilders often consider it the base steroid to most all cycles. Testosterone Base is both anabolic and androgenic in nature. Users of this steroid will notice a dramatic gain in muscle size and strength, as well as an overall sense of well being and increases libido and sex drive. Testosterone Base aromatizes very easily and therefore estrogen buildup and side effects can become an issue for users sensitive to these problems or those choosing to use a high dose of this compound. Therefore, when using Testosterone Base, bodybuilders often choose in incorporate an anti-estrogen such as Anastrozole, Proviron, Tamoxifen to help keep estrogen related side effects to a minimum. Extremely sensitive users, or users using very high doses (800-1200mgs) might find that stronger anti-estrogens such as Letrozole or Exemestane are more suitable. Androgenic side effects such as oily skin are also possible while taking Testosterone Base. Bodybuilders looking to bulk up, often stack Testosterone Base  with other steroids such as  Deca 250 and/or Boldenone 200. The male bodybuilder's dosage of this steroid would typically be in 400-1200mg per week range and cycle duration would be from 8-20 weeks, depending of course on the goals of the athlete. Women typically see desirable results from doses of 50-100mgs per week.

Sustanon 250 - perfomance enhancing drug of repute
Tumblr media
The selection of a steroid is as important as using it as per recommended guidelines so that benefits of steroids can be reaped in the best possible way, this is where Sustanon 250 comes into the picture.
Sustanon 250 is one of the most powerful of all anabolic steroids that are sold online. This safe and easy to use steroid is a blend of four compounds of the male sex hormone, testosterone (testosterone propionate, 30 mg; testosterone phenylpropionate, 60 mg; testosterone isocaproate, 60mg; and testosterone decanoate, 100 mg). Available in oral and injectable forms, Sustanon 250 is one of the most recommended and used steroid in today’s world of professional sports and fitness.
Primarily considered to be a bulking drug, Sustanon 250 provides pronounced androgenic activity, high estrogenic activity, and low progestational activity. The steroid is exemplary in facilitating muscle mass, body strength, and performance gains in as short as 4-6 weeks. Sustanon 250 aromatizes less than testosterone enanthate and testosterone cypionate, popular derivatives of testosterone.
The use of Sustanon 250 can be made by any individual, preferably after medical advice as this steroid is well tolerated by the liver and does not lead to side effects unless abused or of a low quality. In the world of medications, it is used for treating severe health complications such as eunuchoidism and hypopituitarism, and androgen deficiency induced by osteoporosis as part of the testosterone therapy.
When used in doses of 250 mg every three weeks by men, Sustanon 250 demonstrates its true potential. In order to attain best results, it can be stacked with Anadrol, Trenbolone, and Winstrol.

Melanotan and Melanotan II
Tumblr media
Melanotan (MT) and Melanotan II (MT-II) are both analogs of the alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH) which is produced within the pituitary gland. Along with other melanocortins, they are responsible for various internal human functions including skin and hair pigmentation, appetite, libido and physical sexual arousal. Whilst these effects have been observed in both sexes, it is worth noting that increases in libido and sexual function are exclusive to MT-II. This article will primarily look at the tanning and pigmentation properties of the hormone, though it would be foolish to ignore the other effects which are discussed further in the Side Effects section.
Prompted by ultraviolet (UV) exposure, α-MSH release consequently stimulates production of melanin from the melanocytes within the skin. Melanin, as I'm sure you are aware, is a brown pigment and responsible for the tanning of the skin. Simply put, more α-MSH means more melanin, resulting in greater skin pigmentation. Since bodybuilding is such an aesthetic pursuit, and with darker skin that accentuates muscularity, it's little wonder that these drugs are in such high demand.
Currently, analogs based upon MT and MT-II are undergoing clinical trials, with a view to bringing medicinal products to market. These synthetic variants of α-MSH were developed at the University of Arizona during the 1980s. Australian based Clinuvel Pharmaceuticals Limited have marketing rights to MT (CUV1647), with their primary market being individuals with adverse reaction to UV exposure. This includes those with Polymorphous Light eruption (PLE/PMLE) and Actinic Keratosis (AKs or solar keratosis) where skin is intolerant to UV and characterised by severe sores, lumps, itching or burning sensations, or dry skin lesions/growths. You might think that this peptide would be an ideal treatment for pure albinos. However, these individuals are generally not deficient in α-MSH, but instead are have zero melanocyte receptor binding. Therefore, merely increasing circulatory levels of α-MSH or its analogs is futile. Palatin Technologies Inc. based in the United States, has instead focused on an analog of MT-II. Licensed as Bremelanotide (formerly PT-141), this is aimed squarely at the sexual dysfunction market, more specifically, erectile dysfunction (ED) in men. However, early (phase I & II) clinical trials have also been performed using female subjects with results being described by the company as 'encouraging'.
Both Melanotan and Melanotan II have been shown in the clinical setting to increase pigmentation without exposure to UV, a feature that is also confirmed anecdotally by users that report tanning in areas of the body that would seldom see the light of day! However, the process of tanning is greatly expedited by UV exposure. It is worth noting that tanning effects may not be uniform throughout the skin. This is in part due to the half life and distribution of the drug itself, but primarily in response to the concentration of melanocytes within certain areas of the skin. Most will notice the greatest tanning effect on the face, arms, abdominal region. Interestingly, the genitals have one of the highest concentrations of melanocytes enabling these particular areas to respond very well to the peptide in conjunction with UV exposure.
Suggested Cycles/Uses
If you look hard enough out there, you will find some weird and wonderful dosaging schedules whereby the user calculates their daily dosage by multiplying their bodyweight by a cofactor. Perhaps this approach has been adopted since this has been the method employed in the ongoing clinical studies. Typically, this type of formula would suggest a dose of 1mg of MT-II per day for someone weighing in at a mere 110lb (50kg). The cynical among us might be forgiven for thinking that these formulae are constructed by those with a personal interest in the sale of the product as I believe this to be more than necessary to achieve a great result. Indeed, there are many instances whereby users feel they have become too dark. While I have no problem with a bodyweight dosage scale in principle, I can't help thinking that it's not only unnecessary (particularly for the mathematically challenged), but also avoids the ability to gradually increase dosages from a relatively low level; something which I would advocate to assess individual tolerance levels to side effects, especially in the case of MT-II.
Clinical trials to determine efficacy of the drugs have typically used dosages up to 0.21mg/kg daily for Melanotan (16mg for a 75kg (165lb) individual), and up to 0.03mg/kg daily for Melanotan II (2.25mg for a 75kg (165lb) individual). More typically however, trials have used the dosages of 0.16mg/kg (12mg) and 0.025mg/kg (1.875mg) respectively. At this level of dosage, one such study involving Melanotan indicated the following incidences of side effects from subjects:
Nausea 85%
Facial Flushing 75%
Fatigue 44%
Vomiting 26%
Injection site reactions 13%
Zero incidence of erections
No change in vital signs or haematological parameters, blood biochemistry (liver and renal function)
As is the case with any drug use, the user is ideally looking to minimise unwanted side effects, whilst still achieving an acceptable outcome. With this in mind, I would suggest that a tapering up of dosages is used in order to assess the individual's personal tolerance to the side effects.
Both MT and MT II can be used for extended periods, whereby there is an initial daily administration of perhaps 2-3 weeks or until desired level of pigmentation has been achieved, followed by a maintenance phase of two injections per week.
Melanotan: Start with a dose of 1mg daily for the first two or three days and, if level of side effects permit, look to increase dosage by 0.25mg every day over the next several days until you reach a daily dosage of 2-3mg. This level should be adequate for most users, though some may wish to increase yet further, perhaps as high as 5mg daily in order to achieve a very deep tan. A maintenance phase as described above is then used.
Melanotan II: Start with a dose of 0.25mg. If side effects (primarily nausea) are not proving troublesome, attempt to increase daily dosage by 0.25mg where possible, until you reach 1-1.5mg daily. Most have found that this level will yield a very pleasing result and I can't see much point in increasing too much further unless a very deep tan was desired. As with Melanotan, once the desired level of tanning is reached, a maintenance phase is used.
Administration
Both MT and MT II are currently supplied as white lyophilised powder contained in a sealed multi-use vial. The peptide is susceptible to temperature degradation and should be shipped preferably with an ice pack though contrary to popular belief, the rate of degradation is very slow (weeks) in its powder form, so there's no need to be alarmed if yours wasn't shipped in this manner or you are unable to collect your package from a depot for a day or two. Once delivered, the powder is best stored in a freezer, or refrigerated if this is not possible.
To prepare for injection, it must be reconstituted with bacteriostatic water. You may use anything between 1ml and 5ml of water for your vial. Dependant upon the amount of water used will determine the concentration of your solution. For example, a 10mg vial of Melanotan II mixed with 1ml of water will provide a solution of 10mg per 1ml (10mg/ml). This means that a 1mg dose will require a shot of 0.1ml. Bearing in mind that the recommended starting dose is 0.25mg, using the example above, the actual volume of the shot would be 0.025ml (¼ of 1 tenth of a ml). This is a very small volume and very difficult to accurately dose even with a 0.5ml insulin syringe. Therefore, at least until your dosages have increased, it is suggested that you use more water for your vial.
An example of a good solution would be to mix 10mg of Melanotan II powder with 4ml of bacteriostatic water. This now provides:
10mg/4ml or 1mg/0.4ml or 0.25mg/0.1ml
0.1ml can be accurately measured using a 0.5ml or 1ml syringe.
Obviously, as your dosages become higher, you may dilute subsequent vials with lower amounts of water to reduce the volume of each shot. I would recommend that when you are using a dosage of 1mg, you reconstitute the vial with 1ml or 2ml of water so that each shot will be 0.1ml or 0.2ml respectively.
If you are using insulin syringes which have short needles, you will need to enter the skin at 90°. to the skin, otherwise you can inject as shown in the illustration above with a 29 or 30 gauge, 0.5" needle.
I would suggest that you use standard 1ml syringes to which you can interchange needles as required. By doing so, you are able to attach any gauge/length you want to reconstitute and draw the solution (I use a 25guage 1" needle). Once done, simply attach your suitable needle for the injection. Following the injection, ensure that you pull back the plunger a little to 'reclaim' the solution that is contained within the needle itself. The syringe/needle is then placed in the refridgerator for storage until your next injection is due whereby you will attach a brand new injection needle. This process is repeated until you have administered all of the solution in that particular syringe.
Alternatively, you may pre-load insulin syringes and refrigerate until needed. However, because they have non-detachable needles, this can be quite cumbersome as they require loading from the rear.
Instability of the peptide is a much greater issue once reconstituted so you don't want it sitting in the fridge for months on end. Ideally one 10mg vial of MT-II could be shared by two people (each having their own syringe/needles) so even during the maintenance phase of two injections per week of 1mg each; the longest it will be reconstituted for is 2.5 weeks.
Example of How to Dose Melanotan II
Draw 2ml of bacteriostatic water into the vial On an insulin needle, start at 0.06ml (up to 6 little notches on the needle only – see diagram) If this is ok then increase to 0.1ml on the needle Do not use more than 0.15ml Start every 2-3 days, then reduce as you get darker Stored in the fridge and discard after 3 weeks
Major Differences
Melanotan for the obvious reason that it facilitates tanning with limited side effects. It is for this reason that this analogue is being trialled with a view to bringing it to market by Clinuvel. They would be faced with an almost impossible mission had they chosen instead MT-II to develop and place before the regulatory authorities for approval. This is due to the host of extra side effects commonly encountered by users of this analogue, perhaps also coupled with the fact that the side effects that are shared with Melanotan appear more pronounced. However, in terms of monetary cost, and perhaps also a desire to experience and utilise the other side effects, most prospective users will choose Melanotan II.
Melanotan's peptide structure is very closely matched to that of our endogenously produced alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH). It is a specific agonist of the melanocortin-1 receptor (MC-1R) which is primarily responsible for skin colour and is found on melanocyte cells.
Melanotan II on the other hand has a much shorter sequence of amino acids and because of this quite pronounced change in length and structure, is an agonist of the range of melanocortin receptors. Perhaps more importantly, binding at receptors other than MC-1R is far greater than that of Melanotan. This 'shotgun effect' agonism of the full spectrum of different melanocortin receptors results in some effects that are only witnessed from MT-II. Most notably, increases in sexual arousal are due to MT-II's activation of MC-3R and MC-4R.
Because the amino acid sequence is much shorter in the case of MT-II, there is therefore a much greater density of peptide chains than is present using MT within a given set weight. Although the receptor binding affinity of MT-II may not be quite as effective, there will be much more peptide chains than for MT on a mg for mg basis so effectively you require much less in terms of milligram weight of Melanotan II to achieve similar results. This accounts for the wide difference in suggested dosages for each peptide and of course, makes MT-II a much cheaper proposition.
Effects / Side Effects
Melanotan
Skin pigmentation
Nausea
Appetite suppression
Flushing (esp. facial)
Headache
Lethargy
Itching
Dizziness
New mole appearance or darkening
Hyperpigmentation
White patches
Melanotan II
Skin pigmentation
Nausea
Appetite suppression
Flushing (esp. facial)
Headache
Lethargy
Itching
Dizziness
New mole appearance or darkening
Hyperpigmentation
White patches
Increased libido
Physical sexual arousal
Anaphylactic shock?
Of the above listed effects/side effects, it is worth bearing in mind that the prevalence and severity are witnessed to a greater degree from Melanotan II. Indeed, most will find Melanotan very comfortable to use, typically only experiencing minor nausea, appetite suppression and flushing.
Although side effects do become less troublesome with each administration of MT or MT-II, most users will experience at least some of the side effect to varying degrees, most commonly nausea, appetite suppression, facial flushing and dull headaches. These will typically become apparent within a few minutes of administration but can last for many hours. In the case of MT-II, increases in libido are often seen in conjunction with outwardly physical signs of sexual arousal whereby the male user experiences prolonged periods of increased blood flow to the penis. This particular side effect does not diminish in severity over time and instances of occurrence are to be expected throughout the period of MT-II use. As I'm sure you can appreciate, this aspect may prove embarrassing and perhaps quite uncomfortable, so I must stress again the importance of building dosage up gradually to assess personal tolerance and susceptibility.
Some users will notice the new appearance of freckles as these particular areas of skin have increased melanin. The good news is that as the tan is developed, the visual appearance of them will diminish, probably completely. Moles commonly become darker too as these are actually highly concentrated clusters of melanocytes. Both of these occurrences will reverse some time after discontinuation of the peptide and suntanning is ceased.
In addition to freckles and mole changes, there are fairly rare reports of a phenomenon called hyperpigmentation. This is typified by blotches of darkened skin, normally much larger than regular moles. Not all incidences of hyperpigmentation are attributable to increased melanocyte activity even though their appearance may only become apparent during melanocortin receptor agonism by Melanotan I or II. This condition is specifically referred to as diffuse hyperpigmentation, with many possible underlying causes or disorders including Addison's disease, haemochromatosis, hyperthyroidism and certain medications which may induce phototoxic reactions.
Previously unseen white spots or white patches of skin may also become apparent as the tan deepens. Again, this is not thought to occur as a direct result of using Melanotan, rather it merely uncovers the underlying condition. There are a range of actual causes. White spots (typically 2-5mm in size) may be the result of Idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis where there are reductions in the number of melanocytes and melanin in those particular areas. Larger white areas of skin may be due to Tinea versicolor which is a fungal infection caused by the yeast Malassezia furfur which is found on the skin and is not normally troublesome. Treatment would normally include an oral or topical anti-fungal though it may take many weeks for the skin tone to become consistent with surrounding areas.
It has been suggested that due to the greater difference of MT-II to our own α-MSH, there is a greater chance of the body to view the peptide as a 'foreign body' and produce an allergic response. This could potentially trigger anaphylaxis, a potentially life threatening situation whereby large amounts of histamine are produced by the body which can lead to a host of effects including severe bronchoconstriction and rapid drops in blood pressure.

What Is Halotestin?
Tumblr media
A derivative of Testosterone, Halotestin appears to be an excellent substrate for the 5-alpha reductase enzyme that means Halotestin gets converted to a much more active steroid in androgen responsive target tissues like the skin, scalp, and prostate. Water retention, bloating, and gynecomastia are rare side effects associated with use of this drug. Female athletes should seek medical advice before using Halotestin as it is a strong androgen and can result in intense masculinizing side effects. This potent steroid is also useful for improving muscle function, size, and mass besides facilitating a new meaning to stamina, ability to handle intense workouts, and aggression. Halotestin use is also associated with improved levels of nitrogen retention and protein synthesis. Halotestin is almost exclusively taken by bodybuilders during preparation for a competition. Use of this steroid gives distinctive muscle hardness and sharpness to bodybuilders and this potent steroid is an excellent choice for athletes and bodybuilders who are more interested in buildup of strength than muscle gain. The best thing is that use of Halotestin does not lead to water and salt retention. Moreover, this steroid also has the potential of helping athletes get easily through intense and strenuous workouts and training regimens while increasing their aggression to a dramatic extent.
One of the best things about Halotestin is that it is easily and affordably available in different forms like capsules, injections, and pills from reputed online steroid pharmacies. Secondly, legal Halotestin can be purchased with or without a medical prescription though athletes keen to use this drug should always emphasize on getting it the right and legal way. Halotestin is one of the very few drugs that have the potential to maintain normal secondary sex characteristics. This legitimate steroid is also beneficial for treating young men with delayed puberty, for stimulating normal growth and development of the male sex organ, and women suffering with advanced breast cancer. Use of this steroid is also useful for the growth and development of the genitals, muscles, and bones in the male population. This steroid is also beneficial for promoting normal sexual development (puberty) in boys. Oral Halotestin is medically prescribed for treating many health complications, such as Myotonia Congenita, undescended testicle, absence of testicles, hormone receptor positive breast cancer, deficiency of luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone, primary testicular failure because of torsion of both testis, primary testicular failure because of inflammation of testis, unusually late sexual maturity, Rare X Chromosome Abnormality – Klinefelter Syndrome, anemia, and deficient activity of the testis.
Halotestin is ideally used by male athletes in daily dosages of 25-50mg, usually 1 to 4 times a day, as directed by the doctor. This anabolic steroid is generally stacked with Testosterone cypionate, Testosterone enanthate, or Testosterone suspension or with Winstrol, Anavar, and Anadrol. Considered to be a better alternative than Dianabol, Halotestin is also stacked with Anadur, Deca Durabolin, Equipoise, and Primobolan Depot. A stack of Halotestin 20-30mg and Testosterone enanthate 400-800mg is considered by gym instructors and sport coaches as the best stack to gain muscle mass and body strength. The recommended dose of Halotestin for Hypogonadal males is 5-20mg every day and women with advanced breast cancer may use this drug in daily doses of 10-40mg.
For post cycle therapy, athletes should preferably use HCG and Clomid/Nolvadex for restoring the production of natural hormones and enhancing the bioavailability of other steroids used in the steroid cycle.
Halotestin Abuse-How To Prevent Halotestin Side Effects
Halotestin is not recommended for children and girls and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or may get pregnant while using Halotestin. It is also not recommended to those already making use of carbamazepine, corticosteroids, macrolide immunosuppressants, anticoagulants, or oxyphenbutazone. Before using Halotestin, athletes and others should fully disclose the use of prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement to the medical practitioner before seeking advice. This steroid should not be used by individuals who are allergic to any ingredient of this drug or suffering from severe health complications such as prostate, breast, or testicular cancer. It is also not recommended to those with a medical history of high blood pressure, stroke, and elevated liver values.
Halotestin abuse or overdosing can result in health complications such as gynecomastia, water retention, menstrual irregularities, reduced libido, nausea, increased aggression, facial hair growth in women, or allergic reactions.

Arimidex Introduction
Tumblr media
Arimidex belongs to a category and class of drugs known as aromatase inhibitors (AIs). Aromatase inhibitors belong to an even broader class of drugs known as anti-estrogens. The other subcategory of drug under the anti-estrogens category is known as selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs), such as Nolvadex and Clomid. AIs and SERMs make up anti-estrogens. Aromatase inhibitors differ greatly from SERMs in their action and how they deal with the issues of estrogen control. The misunderstanding that SERMs, such as Nolvadex and Clomid, serve to lower estrogen levels must first be addressed. This is a persistent rumor among the anabolic steroid using community that has begun to erode as of late, but the rumor still persists. SERMs serve to block the action of Estrogen at the receptor sites in breast tissue by occupying the receptor sites in place of Estrogen so that Estrogen itself cannot exert its effects there through receptor site binding. Conversely, SERMs will also act as Estrogens at receptor sites at other cells in other areas of the body (the liver, for example in Nolvadex’s case). SERMs do not lower circulating levels of Estrogen in blood plasma. Aromatase inhibitors serve to do this by eliminating the production of Estrogen through binding to and disabling the aromatase enzyme, which is the enzyme responsible for the conversion (or aromatization) of androgens into Estrogen.
Arimidex is an aromatase inhibitor developed by Zeneca Pharmaceuticals that was originally synthesized and designed for the treatment of female patients suffering from advanced breast cancer. It was approved for use by the FDA and released onto the American prescription drug market in 1995. Arimidex is regarded as one of the newer aromatase inhibitors, known as a third generation aromatase inhibitor. The reason as to why both aromatase inhibitors and SERMs act to block Estrogen’s effects in different manners is because it has been found that the vast majority of breast cancers are stimulated and accelerated by Estrogen.
Arimidex is used among breast cancer treatments as what is known as an adjunct treatment. This usually refers to an additional treatment when other standard treatments have failed to meet proper expectations. Prior to the development and release of Arimidex as a breast cancer treatment medication, the primary medication utilized for treatment for decades prior was Nolvadex (Tamoxifen). Nolvadex is considered to be utilized as the first and standard treatment for breast cancer patients. When Nolvadex treatment,for one reason or another, fails to meet expectations during breast cancer treatment, second-line adjunct drugs such as Arimidex are utilized.
One such study on Arimidex on over 9,000 post-surgery female breast cancer patients observed its efficiency in comparison to Nolvadex (both alone as well as both utilized simultaneously), resulting in far more favorable outcomes for Arimidex over Nolvadex. The study, which was performed in 2002, concluded that Arimidex was far more effective at cancer regression, as well as increasing the survival rate of the breast cancer patients following treatment. It was then this study (as well as others) that then of course prompted individuals among the anabolic steroid using community to take notice of it and begin investigating the benefits of its effects on strong Estrogen levels suppression. A study conducted later on demonstrated that the risk of recurrence of breast cancer was eliminated by 40% with Arimidex use, but the patients experienced an increase in bone fractures. This is because Estrogen plays a central role in the proper maintenance of bone and its mineral retention, and this will become significantly reduced following the vast reduction of Estrogen levels resultant of Arimidex administration.
Because Arimidex was the very first aromatase inhibitor for many bodybuilders to have taken notice of, it is the most popular aromatase inhibitor used among anabolic steroid users for the purpose of Estrogen control. The use among anabolic steroid using athletes is for the control of almost all Estrogen-related side effects: the manifestation of gynecomastia, water retention and bloating, rising blood pressure (as a result of water retention increases from Estrogen). This is in contrast with SERMs such as Nolvadex, which only serve to block gynecomastia. Studies have in fact demonstrated that Arimidex use in males has been effective enough to reduce circulating blood plasma levels of Estrogen by 50% at only a dose of 0.5 – 1mg daily. This is a very considerable decrease in men, but can be seen as quite different from the 80% reduction in female breast cancer patients, but it must be remembered that Estrogen and how it relates to the female physiology is different from males.
Aside from the use in bodybuilders, Arimidex has also been medically used in males as well. Some males exhibit abnormally high Estrogen levels of many different reasons and Arimidex has been utilized in order to combat these ailments. In particular, Arimidex has been used to treat male adolescents that exhibit excessive Estrogen levels during purberty, resulting in unwanted pubertal gynecomastia. In addition, excessive Estrogen levels in adolescent males during puberty can often result in stunted growth due to the fact that Estrogen plays a key role in fusing the growth plates of the bones shut, preventing any further linear growth, and Arimidex has also been used to treat these conditions as well.
Chemical Characteristics of Arimidex
Arimidex is a non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor. This is to say that it does not possess the characteristic four ring cycloalkane ring carbon structure common of all types of steroids.
Properties of Arimidex
Arimidex’s effects on serum Estrogen level control can be quite drastic even at a dose of 1mg daily. The amount of Estrogen suppression resulting from this dose has been demonstrated to be over 80% in patients. Arimidex can be so effective at inhibiting the aromatase enzyme and thereby reducing Estrogen levels that this compound is typically only administered to post-menopausal females, and/or utilized when other first-line treatments for breast cancer has failed.
Arimidex and Letrozole are both classified as non-steroidal and non-suicidal aromatase inhibitors that compete with the substrate for binding to the enzyme active site. This is very different from Aromasin (Exemestane), which is a steroidal and suicidal aromatase inhibitor that acts as a mechanism-based steroidal inhibitor that mimics the substrate, is converted by the enzyme to a reactive intermediate, and results in the inactivation of the aromatase enzyme . For ease of understanding, what this means to the layman is that Aromasin’s chemical structure resembles the traditional ‘targets’ that aromatase binds to (Testosterone, for example) and that it essentially ‘fools’ the aromatase enzyme into binding with it, only to become inhibited/deactivated. Because the binding strength is so great, this inhibition becomes permanent for the aromatase enzyme that Aromasin has become bound to. Arimidex and Letrozole, being non-suicidal aromatase inhibitors, both compete with the enzyme’s traditional ‘targets’ rather than being assured a permanent spot (which is the advantage that Aromasin has over the other two).
Bodybuilders and athletes utilizing anabolic steroids will usually favor aromatase inhibitors such as Arimidex for its ability to eliminate rising Estrogen levels at its root cause: aromatase. By disabling the aromatase enzyme, supraphysiological levels of aromatizable androgens (such as Testosterone, Dianabol, Boldenone, etc.) cannot convert into Estrogen, thereby eliminating any possible risk of Estrogen-related side effects.

How To Cycle and Stack Clenbuterol and T3 Cytomel Dosages.
Tumblr media
Interested in learning how to use a Clenbuterol T3 Cytomel Stack?
If you want to begin using Cytomel and Clenbuterol for the first time to help you with weight loss, you must first determine the right dosage for you, if you are a woman, or man. It is best to start with taking Clenbuterol on its own before you add your Cytomel or T3 pills. You can do this by starting with 20 mcg on day one, increasing this to 40 mcg on day two and three, and then 60 mcg on day four and five and up to 80 mcg on day six. Increasing the dosage gradually will help you avoid shocking your system. It is best to gradually decrease the dosage you are taking at the end of your 3 week clenbuterol cycle. Don’t take this fat burner for longer than 3 weeks without a 3 week rest period, unless you are pairing Ketotifen with it.
Clenbuterol Stack Dosages
How do you know if 80 mcg is the correct dose for you? A good method is to increase you dose until it is too high, then go back down to the dosage you were taking before that. You can tell if the dosage is too high for you because your hands will start to shake slightly. If this shaking doesn’t go away after a day, drop your dosage. For most women, 80 mcg of Clenbuterol is enough, and the most you should take is 120 mcg daily. This applies to men as well, though the top dosage for men is 160 mcg daily. Though you may know the right dose for you after your first cycle, you must still work your way up to it during future cycles, then step yourself down. Take your proper dosage in a single setting each day.
It is best to take clenbuterol in the morning, ½ to 1 hour before you exercise (be it strength, cardio or weight training). You don’t need to spread out the dosage during the day because Clenbuterol stays in your body for over 24 hours, and if you take it at night you may experience insomnia. Keep in mind that this supplement doesn’t work miracles alone. It will only work when taken in combination with a healthy diet an intense fitness program. If you exercise intensely throughout your Clenbuterol cycle, you will experience excellent results.
Adding Cytomel to your Stack
Cytomel or T3 is like Clenbuterol in many ways. It needs to be taken in 3 week on, 3 week off cycles, and dosages must be upped gradually in the beginning and stepped down at the end of every cycle. This is much more important with T3 since it can change thyroid function if it isn’t taken carefully, causing you to become dependent on the drug. The best way to take it is to spread dosages out over the day, however, T3 must not be taken less than 6 hours before sleep.
Incrementally increase the dosage to 75-100 mcg. Cytomel tablets normally come in a dosage of 100 mcg, so you will need to take three fourths of a pill each day. This does require a pill splitter, then allowing you to break up your dosage during each day. Some people mix T3 (Cytomel) up with T4 (Synthroid), a thyroid medication. T3 contains Liothyronine Sodium and T4 contains Levothyroxine Sodium. T4 also has a longer life and becomes T3 as the body breaks it down. Global Anabolics markets an even better option named Cytomix that is made up of ¾ T3 and ¼ T4, an even more effective combination. This formula doesn’t require spreading doses out throughout the day, enabling users to swallow ½ before exercising in the morning and the other ½ at lunch time.
I am not a medical professional, but I have studied dieting and weight loss extensively for many years, allowing me to separate the good information from the bad.
My research showed that the people taking these doses were large men who were probably also taking steroids and eating large amounts of protein and carbs to build muscle mass. These professional bodybuilders or weight lifters are probably taking the additional T3 to help burn off the excess fats, proteins and carbs they are consuming. These users are also probably two times the weight and size of most women, telling me that one pill daily is enough for almost all women.
Dosage is dependent on weight, so you may not even need a whole pill. It is important to look into hereditary conditions such as thyroid problems or diabetes prior to beginning T3. If you have either of these problems you need to avoid taking T3.
Stacking Clenbuterol with T3 Ctyomel
Once you are comfortable with the effects of both of these drugs on their own, you might decide it is time to take Clenbuterol together with Cytomel. Combining T3 with your Clenbuterol Dosage can lead to synergistic effects so you get faster results, but it could also cause side effects. The way you take medicines makes a difference in how effective they are. For example, when taking medications for the thyroid, iron or calcium supplements should be avoided since they will react with the thyroid hormones and render them ineffective. You should also avoid milk and dairy products before and after taking thyroid medications. Some medicines have an effect on T3 levels, including propranolol, aspirin and danazol, which increase T3 levels, and rifampicin, furosemide, colestipol, methadone and lithium which decrease T3 levels. Is it ok to take T3 and Clenbuterol at the same time? Yes many people do use this combination in a stack, but safety must be your first consideration. You may take them together in a three week on/off cycle, or alternate between the two.

Nandro (Nandrolone Propionate) by Alpha-Pharma Healthcare
Tumblr media
Nandro (Nandrolone Propionate) is indicated for treatment of anemia's, breast carcinoma, hereditary angioedema, antithrombin III deficiency, fibrinogen excess, growth failure and Turner's syndrome and prophylaxis of hereditary angioedema.
Nandro (Nandrolone Propionate) is one of the most popular injectable steroids. It's popularity is likely due to the fact that Nandro Nandrolone Propionate exhibits significant anabolic effects with minimal androgenic side effects.
Considered by many the best overall steroid for a man to use (side effects vs. results) Nandro (Nandrolone Propionate) is most commonly injected four to five times per week. With this amount, estrogen conversion is slight so gyno is no problem. Also uncommon are problems with liver enzymes, blood pressure or cholesterol levels. At higher dosages, side effects may become increasingly more frequent, but this is still a very well tolerated drug. It should also be noted that in HIV studies, nandrolone has been shown not only to be effective at safely bringing up the lean bodyweight of patient but also to be beneficial to the immune system.
For bodybuilding, Nandro (Nandrolone Propionate) can effectively be incorporated in both mass and cutting cycles. One major drawback to Nandrolone phenylpropionate is that it can be detected in a drug screen for as long as a year after use. Unfortunately for many competitive athletes, this makes Nandrolone phenylpropionate products off limits.
It is easy on the liver and promotes good size and strength gains while reducing body fat. Nandrolone can be used by almost all athletes, with positive results and very few side effects, nandrolone has gained a reputation as being somewhat of an alleviator of sore joints and tendons. Athletes report that sore shoulders, knees and/or elbows are somehow without pain on the Nandrolone cycle.

Anavar Cycle
Tumblr media
Anavar happens to be an anabolic steroid that possesses more versatility in its use and Anavar cycles than would occur at first to most individuals. It also has the ability for more versatility than most, if not all, other oral anabolic steroids. Anavar is known to be less hepatotoxic than most other oral anabolic steroids, as demonstrated by various studies. For one thing, original recommendations by the manufacturer have stated that Anavar is in fact not metabolized by the liver to as great of an extent as that of other oral anabolic steroids, leading experts to believe that this is one of the primary factors contributing to its lower impact on hepatotoxicity. Studies conducted have also demonstrated that in comparison to the following oral anabolic steroids Methyltestosterone, Norethandrolone, Fluoxymesterone, and Methandriol, Anavar has displayed the lowest markers of sulphobromophthalein (BSP), which is a marker of hepatic strain/toxicity. This ‘mild’ nature of Anavar where hepatotoxicity is concerned, allows Anavar to be used as more than just a kickstarting compound to a cycle where it can actually be run for periods much longer than, for example, Anadrol-50. Anavar cycles (specifically the use of Anavar itself) can safely be extended to 8 – 10 weeks, though users should always be aware of the risks associated with liver toxicity and to always supplement with proper liver support products proven to work.
Anavar’s versatility also extends to its use not just as an effective cutting agent for use in fat loss cycles, but also as an effective compound for the purpose of mass addition or bulking (as evidenced by its anabolic strength of at least 3 times that of Testosterone). In Anavar cycles, it tends to be commonly stacked with other anabolic steroids that tend to hold similar properties (zero/low water retention, no Estrogen conversion, etc.) such as Masteron or Trenbolone. Whatever the case may be, an Anavar cycle should always include some form of Testosterone in it so as to at the very least maintain normal physiological function in the absence of adequate levels of endogenous natural Testosterone. Anavar is commonly touted as an anabolic steroid with mild suppression to the Hypothalamic Pituitary Testicular Axis (HPTA), but this is in fact only the case with the lowest of common medical prescription doses (i.e. 5mg daily given to children). Bodybuilding doses (such as the doses recommended previously for the use of Anavar) in fact demonstrate high amounts of endogenous natural Testosterone suppression. One study conducted on the use of Anavar in 6 young male test subjects had demonstrated that after only 5 days of Anavar administration at just 15mg daily, the Testosterone levels of the test subjects were significantly reduced by day 5 from 449ng/dl to 282ng/dl – a 37% reduction of Testosterone in 5 days. With such significant suppression after 5 days at only 15mg daily, one can only fathom the amount of suppression that results from the use of bodybuilding doses (30mg minimum or more per day). This is highly indicative that Anavar is in fact a very suppressive compound on the HPTA, necessitating the use of Testosterone in any Anavar cycle.
Beginner Anavar Cycle
Beginner Anavar Cycle Example (12 weeks total cycle time) Weeks 1-12: - Testosterone Enanthate at 300 – 500mg/week Weeks 1-8: - Anavar at 30 – 40mg/day
This beginner Anavar cycle introduces Anavar at a beginner dose in the range of 30 – 40mg daily (for a total of 210 – 280mg weekly). Note here that Anavar’s total length of use is that of 8 weeks, which exceeds the typical run time of most other oral anabolic steroids. This is due to its milder effects on hepatotoxicity, allowing Anavar to be run for 8 – 10 weeks rather than the typical 4 – 6 week window with most other oral anabolic steroids. Testosterone in the form of a long ester is used, due to the fact that long estered anabolic steroids are commonly used by beginners for ease of dose administration and timing. The total cycle length is slightly longer (12 weeks) as a result. Testosterone is still a major part of the cycle, run at a dose in the range of 300 – 500mg weekly, and serves as a main anabolic alongside Anavar. It is important for one to understand that because Testosterone is run at a higher bodybuilding dose, the chances of water retention through Estrogen conversion to occur are much higher, and thus may result in a soft/puffy looking physique alongside the experienced gains. Regardless, this should be a cycle best suited for lean mass addition and/or bulking.
Intermediate Anavar Cycle
Intermediate Anavar Cycle Example (12 weeks total cycle time) Weeks 1-12: - Testosterone Enanthate at 100mg/week Weeks 1-8: - Anavar at 70mg/day
This intermediate Anavar cycle introduces Testosterone run at a TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy) dose of 100mg weekly, simply to maintain normal physiological function. Testosterone in this case is run as a supportive compound rather than as a primary muscle building agent of the cycle. In such a case, Anavar’s dose is increased in order to pick up the job of acting as the primary anabolic agent in the cycle. The dose here is 70mg daily, coming out to 490mg weekly which is a hefty dose considering Anavar’s strength of at least 3 times that of Testosterone. An Anavar cycle such as this one is not only suitable for lean mass addition, but also suits fat loss and shredding due to the low TRT dose of Testosterone which limits the amount of Estrogen conversion.
Advanced Anavar Cycle
Advanced Anavar Cycle Example (8 weeks total cycle time) Weeks 1-8: - Testosterone Propionate at 25mg every other day (100mg/week) - Trenbolone Acetate at 100mg every other day (400mg/week) - Anavar at 100mg/day
Advanced Anavar cycles such as this one introduce the short-estered anabolic steroids such as Testosterone Propionate and Trenbolone Acetate, where their purpose is to achieve peak blood plasma levels of the hormones far sooner than longer estered anabolic steroids. The result is a cycle that is powerful, fast-acting, and hard-hitting. Once again, Testosterone is relegated to its support role of a TRT dose while Trenbolone and Anavar act as the primary muscle building anabolic steroids. Both Trenbolone and Anavar are compounds that do not hold any Estrogenic activity or any activity with the aromatase enzyme, and therefore one can experience purely lean gains from this cycle with no water retention or fat gain/retention. This cycle is well suited for any goal: bulking, lean mass or fat loss/shredding. The strength of this Anavar cycle and the strong compounds stacked within it allow for the manipulation towards any goal (provided that the individual’s diet is adjusted so as to make progress in such a direction).

Why use Anadrol in a bulking cycle
Tumblr media
Anadrol, a potent anabolic androgenic steroid, is an ideal performance enhancing drug if you are looking for a drug that can improve the production and urinary release of erythropoietin without leading to common side effects of steroids. This steroid (also known as Oxymetholone) is rated as one of the best steroids for promoting the count of red blood cells and protecting joints under heavy loads or during intense workouts.
This 17α-Alkylated steroid is medically prescribed for the treatment of health conditions such as anemia and osteoporosis. Anadrol may also be recommended to stimulate muscle growth in underdeveloped or malnourished patients. This Schedule III drug has the chemical name of 17ß-hydroxy-2-(hydroxymethylene)-17-methyl-5a-androstan-3-one and has the molecular formula of C21H32O3. This steroid can be detected over a period of six to eight weeks and has the melting point of 178° to 180°C. It has an active life of nearly 14-16 hours and its anabolic/androgenic ratio is 320:45. The list of ingredients in Anadrol tablets includes lactose, povideone, magnesium stearate, and starch and its active ingredient is Oxymetholone.
A strong anabolic androgenic steroid, Anadrol is a performance enhancing drug that is trusted by thousands of amateur and professional athletes. This potent steroid has the ability to significantly improve the levels of protein synthesis and nitrogen retention. Ideal for bulking cycles, Anadrol is a steroid that one can associate with nearly permanent improvements in levels of body strength, aggression, and muscle mass. This steroid is also admired by those who are prone to fatigue or nagging injuries during intense workouts and strength training.
A very potent oral androgen, Anadrol has a direct effect on the count of red blood cells without resulting in the side effects of a strong androgen. A derivative of Dihydrotestosterone, Anadrol does not directly convert to estrogen in the body. Considered to one of most powerful steroids available, Oxymetholone offers a level of protection to athletes in the form of “lubrication” to the joints to facilitate improved elasticity and thereby reducing the chance for an injury when lifting heavy. In other words, Anadrol is an amazing pre-workout drug as it protects muscles of the body and prevents tearing of pectoral and biceps tissue that usually happens during heavy lifting while massing up on strong androgens.
Anadrol is a steroid that is more common among men as compared to women. There is however no denying the fact that Anadrol is a big hit with female elite athletes and bodybuilders as it promotes dramatic improvements in the levels of muscle mass, protein synthesis, nitrogen retention, aggression, and body strength. Medical practitioners may recommend Anadrol to women who have already been harmonized.
Anadrol is ideally used by male athletes in daily doses of 1-5mg per kilogram of body weight. Some female athletes prefer using Anadrol in daily dosages of 1-2mg per kilogram of body weight.
Anadrol is generally stacked with Boldenone, Nandrolone, and Testosterone by those into body building and strength athletics. It is important to note that antiestrogens such as Nolvadex should be used immediately after the end or towards the end of a steroid cycle involving Anadrol as one or the only steroid. Nolvadex is beneficial for preventing estrogenic side effects like oily skin and bloating, and restoring the production of naturally-occurring testosterone while enhancing the bioavailability of anabolic steroids used in the steroid cycle. The use of HCG is also recommended to avoid a “cycle crash.”
Tumblr media Tumblr media
Anadrol Abuse, Side Effects, And Tips To Use
Anadrol is not recommended to children and girls and women, who are pregnant or breastfeeding or may get pregnant while using this drug. This anabolic androgenic steroid is not advised to people who have been diagnosed with health conditions like breast, prostate, and testicular cancer or having hypersensitivity to Anadrol or any of its ingredients.
Anadrol is best stored at a controlled room temperature of 20° to 25°C (68° to 77°F) with excursions permitted to 15° to 30°C (59° to 86°F). Use of Anadrol should always be made for medicinal purposes and under strict accordance with the medical recommendations. Anadrol should always be purchased with a valid medical prescription from an eminent steroid pharmacy. Dosages of this steroid should not be increased or decreased without prior medical approval. When overdosed or abused, Anadrol can lead to side effects like hepatitis and cirrhosis or hoarseness, growth of facial hair, acne, and changes in menstrual cycle. Anadrol abuse may even be a reason behind health complications like persistent or frequent erections, bladder irritability, and decrease in seminal volume, or aggravation of acne.

Juice: Not for breakfast anymore
Tumblr media
Just because something looks like a steroid (structurally) doesn’t mean its effects are similar. Heck, androstenedione is structurally very similar to testosterone. But the effect of ‘andros’ in normal men would be like feeding a lion a McDonald’s hamburger and calling it a meal. And whether it’s legal?
What gets lost in stories such as this is the fact that anabolic steroids provide benefits when used in the right dosage for the right duration. The scientific literature is nothing less than amazing when it comes to the potentially positive effects of anabolic steroids.
Hot Women, More Testosterone
Did you know that men release testosterone and cortisol in response to brief social interactions with young women? So men get turned on and they seem stressed out at the same time. What about the reverse?
One study examined whether women show a similar endocrine response to physically and behaviorally attractive men. One-hundred-and-twenty women were shown one of four 20-minute video montages extracted from popular films, depicting the following scenarios:
an attractive man courting a young woman (experimental stimulus)
a nature documentary (video clip control)
an unattractive older man courting a woman (male control), and 
an attractive woman with no men present (female control).
Saliva samples were taken before and after presentation of the stimulus, and were later analyzed for testosterone and cortisol content via enzyme immunoassay. And voilà! Women experienced a significant increase in testosterone and cortisol in response to the experimental stimulus, but not to the control stimuli. According to these researchers, women may release adrenal steroid hormones to facilitate courtship interactions with ‘high mate-value’ men. Put another way, it may be good to train with a good-looking guy or girl (whatever your preference) to get a nice little boost of testosterone.
Endurance Exercise Boosts Testosterone
I guess a little is good, but too much may be bad. We know that elite endurance athletes have testosterone levels akin to a 10-year-old boy. But what happens if you take novices and subject them to endurance training?
Fifteen young, healthy men performed endurance training of five-week duration on a cycle ergometer. Before and after the exercise program, all participants completed a ‘max’ exercise test. The training program resulted in 3.7 % improvement in maximal oxygen uptake and 8.2 % improvement in power output reached at max VO2. Testosterone also increased from 18.8 to 22.0 nmol/L. That’s a 17 % increase! Not too shabby. Moreover, the training caused a significant decrease in sex hormone-binding globulin concentration, but there was no significant change found in cortisol concentration. So at least in novices, it looks like mild exercise can boost Testosterone levels.
Anabolic Steroids and Heart Health
Scientists studied the effect of oral administration of Testosterone undecanoate for three months on serum lipid levels, and on the occurrence of anginal attacks and daily ischemic episodes in patients with coronary heart disease (CAD). Yes, you read that right. CAD. If this stuff is so bad for your heart, why on earth would doctors give it to folks with heart disease? As you well know, the scientific truth often differs from the mainstream press’ idiotic assertions.
Eighty-seven diabetic male subjects with CAD were randomized to a 12-week treatment with either Testosterone undecanoate (40 mg administered three times daily) or placebo in a double-blind protocol. Weekly episodes of angina attacks, number of ischemic episodes daily and total ischemic burden on ambulatory ECG Holter were evaluated at baseline and at the end of the study. Serum total cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations were also measured at the same time points. So what did they discover?
Compared to Testosterone undecanoate, it significantly reduced the number of anginal attacks per week by 34 percent; the silent ischemic episodes by 26 %, and the total ischemic burden of 21 % on ambulatory ECG monitoring. If you don’t have your medical dictionary handy, that means taking the anabolic steroid Testosterone undecanoate actually improved heart performance by allowing more oxygen to be delivered to the heart muscle. Also, after 12 weeks, total cholesterol and plasma triglycerides were significantly reduced in the Testosterone undecanoate group, compared to the placebo group.
So is the data actually suggesting that folks with CAD take an anabolic steroid? If you answered ‘yes,’ then go to the head of the class. There is a plethora of data supporting the beneficial effects of Testosterone undecanoate. For instance, in older men, lower total testosterone levels predict increased incidence of stroke. So why do folks still believe this hormone is so deadly? I don’t know. Heck, some folks actually believe astrology.
Green Tea Bad for Testosterone
This study investigated the acute effects of green tea extract and its polyphenol constituents, (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) and (-)-epicatechin (EC) on basal and stimulated testosterone production by rat Leydig cells in vitro. Now before you get your panties all up in a bunch, keep in mind that this was an in vitro study. I’m not suggesting you give up your green tea, but you have to admit, the data is rather intriguing.
Leydig cells (from the testes) were incubated for 3 hours with green tea extract, EGCG or EC and the testosterone-precursor androstenedione, in the presence or absence of either protein kinase A (PKA) or protein kinase C (PKC) activators.Green tea extract and EGCG, but not EC, inhibited both basal and kinase-stimulated testosterone production. Whether this occurs in vivo (i.e., a living mammal) is yet to be seen. And I’d imagine the dose required might be a bit higher in us humans than a bunch of testicular cells in a dish.
