Hey guys I have used Anapolin (Anadrol) heaps in the past. There was not a cycle that I did without it. I used 50mg a day for the entire cycle length in the off season. I also used it pre-comp as well. During pre-comp I would start at 1 tab a day for the first 2 weeks then to 2 a day for the next 2 weeks, then 3 a day for 3 weeks and start to taper off over the following 3 weeks. During both on and off season use my diet was always clean anyway so hardly and water weight. I used Syntax brand down here. I didn't suffer any gyno problems or any sides to that fact. Obviously strength was through the roof for absolutely everything. I use to love the Abombs but due to the hardness on the body that I am now aware of I wouldn't take them. All my Anapolin use age was in the early to late 90's.
No steroid is without its drawbacks and that includes oral steroids, which are stressful on your liver, especially with c-17 alpha alkylation ’s which is used to improve absorption of oral steroids. If these chemicals weren’t used the anabolic steroids are often not able to get past the first pass metabolism in the lifer, and therefore the anabolic effects would not be enjoyed. The liver plays a vital role in the body clearing out waste products, and storing important nutrients. On top of the side effects, oral steroids shut down your body’s hormone production. This is why most users will include a steroid, such as, testosterone with the oral steroid, so the body’s testosterone levels are backup.
Oral and injectable steroids both have their benefits. Primarily, oral steroids offer huge gains in short periods, and injectable steroids offer smaller, higher quality gains over longer periods of time. Most of the bodybuilders and athletes who utilize anabolic steroids will actually use both during a cycle. They will start out with one of the oral steroids as a “kick-start” for their gains, then switch over to an injectable before the side effects become too much to handle. This way, they can enjoy quick gains from the start, then turn them into lean muscle without much water retention throughout the rest of the cycle.
