Steroid cycles

Steroid “cycles”
At the moment, anabolic-androgenic steroids (ACC) is most commonly used to increase the strength of the results and a set of muscle mass class of drugs. In order to get the maximum effect from the ACC, should adhere to certain rules, in particular – “cycled” their reception.

According B.Fillipsu, a steroid “cycle” shall mean the reception of a single drug or combination of drugs in technie 6-12 weeks followed by abstinence from steroids for at least 10-12 weeks. Many, and in Russia perhaps most, people are resorting to such a model of reception, but it has some significant drawbacks.

The most important – during such a long pause, a big part of the power achieved results and gain muscle mass disappear, and the next “cycle” athlete fits almost in the same state he was before, and the previous …

Note that this model of reception would make sense when using relatively low close to therapeutic doses of steroids, which, combined with some manipulation of the intensity and volume of training does not lead to a significant “roll back” during the pause. This approach might have been best for amateurs who want to “build a little muscle” and not knowing how competitive ambitions. But those standards that are now accepted in the competitive bodybuilding and powerlifting, at therapeutic doses, unfortunately, unattainable. Therefore, athletes aspiring to high results and resorting to high dosages of ACC used steroids or permanently, or with very small gaps between cycles.

In the world of bodybuilding practice non-stop use of ACC ambitious athletes has become a matter of habit, and the results of it, you can see in the image in any of the bodybuilding magazines.

The logs for some reason does not say that the majority of these athletes do not have children, and the breasts have long since removed surgically. So at the moment a meaningful cyclical use of anabolic-androgenic steroids understand the following one after another regimen of drugs, taking into account the peculiarities of each individual receiving the steroid. Cycles decided to start with low doses and increase them slowly and steadily to Remember a positive nitrogen balance in the cell.

In practice, it turned out that a combination of 2-3 steroids in moderate doses is not only much more efficient, but also guarantees a longer exposure period than if taken one steroid in high dosages. Through a properly chosen combination achieved a synergistic effect, if the athlete is able to choose steroids, which have different effects on strength, increasing muscle mass and recovery of the body. Stimulation of different receptor types for a limited period of time will give better results than using one type of steroids for a long time.

Synthesizing action formulations can be stored over several months if the steroid combination is reversed for the period of no more than 8 weeks, and if the athlete stronger combines mainly androgen “cycles”, with weaker predominantly anabolic and dosage vary while constantly. The slow and gradual reduction of dosages in the end “the cycle” helps re-normalize body functions and to prepare it for a pause in the reception of the ACC, which is usually overcome with the help of other groups of drugs – Clenbuterol, insulin, etc.

The following examples are taken from the receiving ACC books P.Gryundiga and M.Bahmana “Anabolic steroids,” as the most complete illustration of the variety of options using this drug class foreign athletes. I want to emphasize that these cycles are used mainly by amateur athletes – from professionals dosages many times higher.

This program contains two extremely popular steroid combinations. Combining Dianabol, Deca-Durabolin is intended for the rapid buildup of strength and the “masses”. To avoid high levels of estrogen and the strong water retention in the body, it makes sense to receive additional administration of antiestrogens (Nolvadex and Proviron).

Subsequent combination Primobolan, Winstrol consolidate the newly built mass and help get rid of excess water, which had been delayed during the first phase. If the cycle is ended on Dianabol and Deck, “rollback” would be more noticeable.
