Most important things first
Adjust your diet to your new regimen. Make sure you diet is ideal if you are about to gain muscle or reach a better definition. Since diet plays a pivotal role, neglecting it will slow down your building process and make steroids less effective. We have written about Diet For Muscle Building – Most Common Misconceptions, check it to make sure you are not repeating some of them.
Train hard and regularly. Steroids enhance your body's abilities to build muscle, but they do not do the whole job by their self. In order to bulk, cut or get stronger you still need to work hard in the gym for at least 3 times a week in 45 minutes sessions. These tips on How to Increase Workout Effectiveness give you advice on different techniques that proved their effectiveness throughout the time.
Gynecomastia and water retention. Since these are some of the most common effects of most of the anabolics, keeping a close eye on them will help you spot the issues and prevent them before it's getting too late. Nolvadex or Tamoxifen should be used in a dosage of 20mg per day until gyno symptoms disappear, and continue with 10mg until the end of the cycle.
Clomid and HCG are recommended for use at the end of the cycle to prevent muscle loss, restore natural testosterone production and keep under control the above-mentioned side-effects. You will find lots of ways to take Clomid, however, we can recommend this schedule: 100mg daily for the first week, then lower the dosage to 50mg daily for the next 2 weeks. As for HCG, its usage is recommended during the last cycling week in a 3x2500iu dosage weekly.
Best steroid stacks for 2016
#1 Muscle Building Beginner Stack: Deca + Test
Deca Durabolin (200-400mg) + Testosterone Ethanate (500mg) - 8 weeks
3 times a week: 100mg of Deca +250mg of Test mixed into same syringe + 200mg of Deca
This is the most common steroid stack recommended for those who are their first experience with steroid cycling. Safe, but still very effective, Deca and Testosterone use help to bulk, but also burn fat very efficiently. Going with lower dosage can work great for first time users while sticking to a 400mg of Deca per week is the golden ground to follow.
Some aromatization is possible, that’s why keep Nolvadex on hand. Give Clomid a shot for 7-10 days after cycling is done.
#2 Muscle Building Beginner Stack II : Deca + Test + Dianabol
Deca Durabolin (200-400mg) + Testosterone Ethanate (500mg) + Dianabol (30mg) - 8 weeks
3 times a week: 250mg of test + 100mg of Deca mixed into the same syringe, and another 30mg of Dianabol
A perfect for muscle building stack, Dianabol addition serves as a kickstarter, providing amazing results until Deca and test start to respond. Being an oral, Dianabol use is limited to the 6 weeks with one day off per week. The best is to split daily dosage of Dianabol into 3 intakes, because of its short life. In order to increase its effectiveness, take it before or after a protein rich meal.
Take 10mg of Nolvadex or Tamoxifen daily to reduce water retention effect caused by Dianabol and Test. Also, during PCT take Clomid starting with the 10th day off the cycle for the next 2 weeks.
