Methandrostenolone is a very strong anabolic steroid that is also known under a number of other brand names, some of the popular names that it is referred to as are Dianabol or Dbol.
It is typically used amongst bodybuilders or athletes as it gives them the ability to enhance their performance in areas that they would not have been able to do so quickly before, for example, an athlete may be taking Methandrostenolone due to the fact that it helps them improve their stamina.
A bodybuilder on the other hand may take Methandrostenolone as it can help them improve vastly in areas such as their ability to be able to gain large amounts of muscle mass as well as make huge leaps in terms of their strength gains all within a very short amount of time.
Therefore this anabolic steroid tends to be used the most by bodybuilders specifically in the offseason as this is the time where they are trying to increase their muscle mass and make improvements in their strength gains, so Methandrostenolone would support them well during this time period. The results gained during the bulking phase are also far better than what you can expect to see when you are cutting for a competition, however, this does not necessarily mean that you cannot expect to see any real benefits from using this anabolic steroid during the contest prep period.
In fact, there are some users that use Methandrostenolone especially just during the time where they are getting ready for a show, when they have restricted their calories and are on a strict training and diet regime as it helps them to be able to maintain all of the muscle mass and strength progress that they had made during the bulking period. So bodybuilders can gain a lot from using Methandrostenolone when cutting because when you are getting ready for a show, you put yourself in a caloric deficit so your intake of food is a lot lower, therefore you are no longer in a position to be able to build muscle and strength, all you can really do is try to maintain it whilst, at the same time, trying to lose body fat. So of course the Methandrostenolone can be very effective here but for the majority of people who use this anabolic steroid, they prefer to use it during their bulking phase as they feel as though the benefits that they can gain from it during this time are more worth it.
Many bodybuilders use Methandrostenolone as a way of kick starting their cycle, you may be wondering what this is and why people decide to use this anabolic steroid in this way. Well it is essentially a way of making sure that you are able to see consistent gains throughout the whole of your cycle, not just towards the end or at the beginning. In order to see the best kinds of results, you need to combine an oral steroid that gets to work quickly, such as Methandrostenolone, with a more long term acting agent, so things you inject, such as testosterone.
This basically ensures that you see results all the way to the very end of your cycle not just at the beginning, whereas the oral Methandrostenolone will give you almost immediate results, most people notice a change within a week, so combining the fast acting steroid and the long term one, you can be certain to see consistent results over the entire course of your cycle to get the most out of it. Most people will take between 25-50mg of Methandrostenolone every day for around the first four weeks of a cycle as that is the average time your body needs for an effective way to start your cycle off with the best results.
Methandrostenolone Side Effects
However, there are a number of side effects that are associate with the strong anabolic steroid methandrostenolone and one of the most common side effects of Methandrostenolone is gynaecomastia, also known as “gyno”. It is where the breast becomes enlarged especially around the nipple area because estrogen is increased, some people will unfortunately be much more sensitive to this side effect than others which forces some bodybuilders to have their pec glands removed. But for the majority of people, “gyno” is a side effect that can easily be avoided.
Another one of the main side effects that users have reported that they have suffered from includes high blood pressure and it is very important that you take caution here because if you are someone who already has high blood pressure, you must avoid methandrostenolone at all costs and research about other steroids to aid you as the risks and effects are just too high and will most likely not be worth the reward. If your blood pressure is at a normal level however, then as long as you do not go over the recommended dosage, you should not have problems as far as high blood pressure is concerned. To put in in perspective, some people can be on 50mg per day and not have any issues with blood pressure.
So Methandrostenolone has huge amount of benefits for athletes and bodybuilders and it was even used for medical reasons back in the 1950s for a short amount of time when it was first developed, but I must say that I do not condone the use of anabolic steroids due to the fact that in most areas, they are illegal to buy. Also, they can be very harmful to you and can cause a lot of problems if you do not know how to use them properly, so if you do decide to use them, make sure that you have done a whole lot of research about it before getting on to a cycle.
