Dianabol is a synthetic anabolic androgenic steroid that is available in the oral form. It is a quick acting steroid that is powerful, giving visible results in a short while. It is more anabolic than androgenic.
It is preferred by bodybuilders and other performers because of its availability as an oral product with great results. It is however important for new beginners to research on Dianabol cycles online before taking up its use. This is to make sure one is provided with the right knowledge on how to stack, cycle, prevent side effects and what results to expect rather than taking it blindly.
Dianabol is so powerful that the cycles are limited to people who have used steroids for some time. During the first few weeks of the cycle, there is an increase in weight. This is partly due to water retention and mostly due to increased protein synthesis which has led to muscular hypertrophy. Because of the potent water retaining ability, Dianabol is usually combined with an Aromatase inhibitor.
Advanced steroid users use Dianabol cycles for bulking. This steroid is available in 10mg and 25 milligram tablets. It is recommended to start with the lower quantity and build up depending on the tolerance and occurrence of side effects. Since the half life of Dianabol is short, around 5 to 6 hours depending on individual pharmacodynamics, the daily dose is usually split into two divided doses to maintain a steady blood concentration.
Dianabol is also hepatotoxic and care should be taken not to use high doses for too long. A post cycle therapy is also important as it suppresses endogenous testosterone production. Most Dianabol cycles do not extend beyond 12 weeks due to the side effect profile.
Like with other steroids, the best results are acquired when cycles are combined with exercise and diet.
