Insulin Usage For Gaining Muscle Mass in Bodybuilding

Building muscle is a hard. With all the resources at disposal, we still struggle to find a product that can help us reach this goal. Insulin became a popular agent due to its powerful anabolic features.

Properly taken, insulin can turn you into a massive gay or big fat gay if dosage exceeded. To make insulin your ally for building a crazy body read our post and highlight details to know about safe use.

Let’s talk about how insulin can be use to gain lean muscle mass and what manipulations are needed to be known to make this process smooth and free of any risks.

Insulin promotes the diffusion of glucose into the cells via the insulin receptor.  Very high concentrations of insulin result in protein synthesis by the strongly stimulated muscle.

Insulin is a protein secreted by the pancreas which acts on the liver to stimulate the formation of glycogen from glucose and to inhibit the conversion of non-carbohydrates into glucose.

Insulin also promotes the diffusion of glucose into the cells via the insulin receptor.  Very high concentrations of insulin result in protein synthesis by the strongly stimulated muscle.  It does so mainly by improving the initiation of the peptide chain.

These results make it incredibly useful to bodybuilders and athletes.  And those factors combine to make ingested protein more efficient by promoting the transport of amino acids into muscle cells.

We can clearly say that insulin is undoubtedly essential for anabolic muscle tissue.  It also increases bone density. Another mechanism increasing the anabolic effect of insulin is that insulin increases the levels of IGF (Insulin in your body. No need to remind you that IGF-1 is a highly anabolic hormone.

Another unexpected aspect of insulin is its ability to increase LH levels (Leutenizing hormone) and FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone). This means that insulin stimulates gonadotropin secretion, it has an anabolic effect by increasing your  HPTA (hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular-Axis) ability resulting in the increase of your testosterone production.

Insulin also increases the binding capacity of anabolic steroids with the androgen receptors, which strongly suggests the possibility of a synergistic effect of insulin when combined with steroids. Most bodybuilders confirm that insulin has an anabolic synergy when combined with the growth hormone.

The relationship between insulin, IGF and HGH is very synergistic and interdependent from each other actions. Using all three together, plus anabolic steroids and a fat burner will give you the most powerful and solid muscle possible.

Of course, when something seems too good to be true, there is always a but !!!!

Unfortunately, the bad news is that insulin can easily stimulate the storage of body fat.

Generally, most bodybuilders take insulin with a fat burner or thyroid hormones such as t3-Cytomel, as well as anabolic steroids and sometimes even HGH and IGF, for reasons explained previously. All this decreases the probability of fat storage, and greatly increases the amount of muscle that will be gained.

 

Insulin dosage

Insulin is indeed one of the most powerful agent, but taken improperly may cause serious health problems. High caution when it used have to be followed.

The best time to take insulin is right after the training. The rationality behind this is that insulin counteract catabolic reactions and bring body into an anabolic stage. The recovery time is also shortened when post training spike of insulin is made.

Recommended dosage is 1 IU   per 10-20 pounds of lean body weight. Begin with small doses like 2 IU, and gradually increase the dosage with 1-4 IU for every training session.

 

Warning signs when injecting insulin

Insulin administration has to disrupt when one of the following situations is observed:

-dosing reach the 20 IU level;

-high hypoglycemia (excess insulin) despite low insulin level was taken.

The use of a higher dose is not justified, as it is associated with a range of risks that can be fatal for you. A dosage of 35-45 IU can be lethal, while there were cases when even 22-25 induced a hypoglycemic coma. If it is administered during or immediately after a workout, the best is to keep it at 15-16 IU.

 

What a steroid user have to know about hypoglycemia

Hypoglycemia appears when blood glucose level reached a high level. Main symptoms of a high glucose level in body are: sudden sweating, acute hunger, difficulties with coordination and orientation in space, blurred vision (circles before the eyes), speech disorders, trembling limbs, and heart begins to beat faster, increased feelings of insecurity, panic, mood changes, change of behavior.

The main problem is that once the allowed dosages of insulin was exceeded, the symptoms occurs very quickly, and people often do not have time to even realize that these are namely side effects.

The result is a complete disorientation, loss of consciousness or involuntary sleep, and i worst cases death. That’s why it’s highly advisable that during the next four hour after injection of insulin to be supervised by a person  who will not let you sleep, will feed you with sweets, and will call a doctor if it would be the case.

How to keep hypoglycemia level low

Right after administration eats a lot of carbohydrates do not let hypoglycemia occur. Don’t miss a meal as this can also trigger an insulin increase in the body.

What else you can do? Keep insulin intake dose low and make sure you inject it properly. Never inject insulin into the muscles or intravenously because of fast absorption. Such way of administration can be lethal and is performed only in hospital.

Best site for insulin injection are under the skin on the arm, thigh, buttocks or abdomen.

 

Anabolic action of insulin

The anabolic properties of insulin occur due to the fact that the hormone begins to interact with the receptors of insulin-like growth factor, which doesn’t happen in normal doses. Insulin increases the permeability of the membranes of muscle fibers not only for glucose, but also for amino acids. Thus, the building blocks cell gets larger.

Is the use of insulin without androgen meaningless? The answer is not, and there are two main reasons for this. Firstly, insulin promotes the rapid recovery of liver glycogen and muscle cells, which means faster recovery after training loads. Secondly, insulin is a powerful anti-catabolic. That is, it may shift the balance between anabolic and catabolic processes in the body, by lowering the rate of the last one. As you see the use of insulin alone is quite justified.

Insulin resistance and the main factors causing it

Insulin resistance leads to increased insulin secretion, hyperinsulinemia, in turn, reduces the number of receptors on the surface of target cells, leading to a further increase of insulin resistance. Process becomes an avalanche. It is a constant elevated level of insulin in the blood and causes a permanent excess intake of fats and carbohydrates.

Additional injection of insulin for a long period of time can, as excessive consumption of carbohydrates and fats, cause permanent reduction in the number of insulin receptors on the cell surface, so - and sustainable reduction ability of cells utilize glucose, ie to type 2 diabetes.

Theoretically, everything seems to be so. In the real world, is unlikely to find at least one person who is injected insulin without interruption for years. A period of less than three years is unlikely to lead to any changes in the way of diseases. There is, however, risk group, people who have inherited a tendency to develop diabetes. These people should not experiment with insulin at all.

As you see the use of insulin for increasing muscle mass is only possible if there is no resistance to the hormone. It is not advisable the use of insulin by young people, older athletes, and athletes with impaired liver function, and thyroid gland.

Lose fat before beginning to use insulin for muscle building purpose. This is because the use of the drug will go mainly to the path of fat accumulation.

 

The individual insulin needs are usually between 0.3 and 1.0 IU / kg / day. Make sure your insulin is limited between 15 and 45 IU. But this will depend greatly on your daily carbohydrate intake. During a diet or cutting period, the dosage should be reduced more. Most bodybuilders use up to three insulin injections daily.

 

  • The first dose of the product just after waking up.
  • The second dose of the product somewhere near noon.
  • The third and final consumption is done right after you finish your workout for the day.

 

  • Normally, insulin is produced by the pancreas and is then discharged into the blood. It acts in seconds, and its production, so-called secretion varies every moment depending on the needs of the body. This so-called fast insulin or regular insulin Actrapid HM Penfill, is produced in the lab, which is identical to the insulin produced naturally by the human body.
  • But although we know how to perfectly make this insulin in the laboratory, we do not know (yet) how to control the discharge into the blood by varying the rate at all times as required. This is the great problem of its administration route, to know how it will be able to get into the bloodstream.
  • As it is destroyed when it passes through the stomach, the insulin can not be taken as a tablet or a drinkable ampoule. The only way that is used is the famous bite of insulin, which is made by an injection under the skin (subcutaneously). But once the insulin is under the skin, it has to travel to the blood vessels and this takes time. This is why the rapid called insulin finally comes rather slowly. Its action begins 15-30 minutes after the injection and lasts about 6 hours.
  • To counter the problem of fast acting insulin acting too slowly compared to the rapid influx of carbohydrate meal, we have sought to develop insulin that acts even faster.
  • The researchers were able to slightly change the structure of insulin and have successfully developed a modified insulin that works faster, stronger and in less time: it is the “fast insulin analogs” like insulin HUMALOG.
  • Following subcutaneous administration, Humalog has a rapid effect and a shorter action duration (2-5 hours)  than regular insulin. This quick action enables the administration of an injection of Humalog (or in the case of a subcutaneous continuous, a Humalog bolus) shortly before or after the meal. The evolution of action time of any insulin may vary significantly from one subject to another or at different times in the same subject.  The onset of action, faster compared to rapid human insulin, is maintained regardless of injection site. As with all insulin preparations, the action of Humalog duration depends on the dose, site of injection, blood supply, temperature and physical activity.

    I have done six or 8 shots post workout, Three tines a week. I have not noticed any size gain or weight gain. Usung 10 IU’s and following carb protocol and slamming BCAA’s and creatine post workout.

    Did u use it before or it’s ur first time? 3 times per week people are using on pct to not loose their gains. If u r using it as a cycle, you should do it everyday 10-15iu. The best way would be to divide 10 or 15iu into 2 shots per day. One in the morning and second after ur workout. U should take food straight away after ur injection. Min amount of carbs will start from 100g + and 50g + of proteins. After 1-2 hours try to take again proteins.

    Hypoglycemiais when the blood sugar levels are LOW not high. Double check your information. Before you kill someone. Hyperglycemia is when the levels are high. Insulin lowers blood sugar levels. That’s why you’d experience those side effects and it’s good to keep candy or something high in sugar around. NOT because of high blood sugar.

    F. Kyle. Thanks. So you are saying use it twice a day. I can do that. I am educated on what to eat after injections. So how long can I cycle insulin? 4 weeks ? 6 weeks? 10 weeks? I don’t ant to become a diabetic. I have been on anabolics for about 4 years. I blast and cruise. I am 50 years old though. Still in killer shape. I want to cut back on my test injections this winter and try to gain size on insulin.
