If you are pre-competition, you may be looking for the best steroids for cutting. Well, luckily for you, we have that article right here. Of course, there are so many types of steroids available to you, and things can become overwhelming, especially if you are new to them.
Bodybuilding is in an era and has been for some time, that judges are looking for people who are hard, shredded, and dry along with top conditioning. That can be an extremely difficult thing to achieve. The better your conditioning, the more likely you are to score big on your judge scores. Before we go into some of the “safe” single steroids, we will have a look at what a pre-competition cycle may look like in an experienced bodybuilder:
Best Steroids For Cutting
Before we get into the cycle, I would like to point out that you should always have your diet and fitness regime down to a T before you even consider steroids. Furthermore, you should never jump straight into a cutting cycle of steroids if you have no experience with them beforehand.
Believe it or not, your body and mind can go through a lot of stress when you are “hard dieting” for a competition. Therefore, a lot of top-end athletes will include some sleep aids and muscle relaxants to help with stress. Here is a typical cutting cycle that you will find a lot of pre-comp bodybuilders use:
- Trenbolone Acetate – 100 mg every day
- Testosterone Propionate – 100 mg every day
- Drostanolone Propionate – 100 mg every day
- Winstrol or Anavar – 50 mg/day for six weeks
- Growth Hormone – 4 IU, first thing in the morning, 45 minutes before food
- T3 – 20 mcg, gradually increased according to individual needs
- Clenbuterol – 20 mcg, increased according to individual needs
- Nolvadex – 20 mg every day
- HCG – 250 IU, twice per week
We will go through each of the steroids on the list in a little more detail. However, always do your due diligence and research enough to be sure of the product before using them.
Although Trenbolone Acetate has never had approval for human use, there are a lot of bodybuilders who use it as a physique and performance-enhancing drug. Although there has never been human testing done on the drug, it is claimed to have around five times more potency and effectiveness than testosterone. However, the other reason that people use Tren for cutting is that it does not cause water retention, as testosterone does.
Testosterone Propionate was the first testosterone ester on the market. However, it is relatively short-acting testosterone when compared to other, newer esters such as cypionate, enanthate, and undecanoate. So, why do some athletes choose Propionate over any other form of an ester? The answer is simple: it has a pretty short half-life, at only three and a half days. Furthermore, it is only detectable for two weeks, unlike three months like the others.
Drostanolone Propionate has no estrogenic activity. Therefore, it will not cause gynecomastia or fluid retention. That is why it is one of the more common steroids for the cutting cycles.
Winstrol and Anavar are both very similar. Therefore, they are almost indistinguishable from each other. They both belong to the Dihydrotestosterone group of steroids. Both of the two options you have here are suitable steroids for cutting, as neither of them has estrogenic side-effects. As with a couple of the products above, that means that there will be little to no water retention while using them.
The only way to decide on which product is better for you is to try them out. Neither of them is significantly better than the other, as they both have the same effectiveness and ability.
The words Growth Hormone (GH), or Human Growth Hormone (HGH), is a peptide hormone for stimulating growth and cell reproduction and regeneration. The first recorded instance of the use of this hormone was in Dan Duchaine’s “Underground Steroid Handbook” in California in 1982. The steroid is very popular for increasing muscle, therefore reducing fat. Its use is also very common because it is endogenous in humans, and therefore, very difficult to detect.
Best Steroids For Cutting – T3
I have seen some debates about T3 Vs. T4 when looking into thyroid hormones. However, I feel that the answer to which is best is easy. The ration of production between T3 and T4 is usually 14:1 in the average person. T3 is the chemical that regulates your body temperature, metabolism, and heart rate. Therefore, an increased T3 level will increase all of those, creating an ideal bodily environment for fat burning.
When you diet, your metabolism will slow down, making you feel sluggish and lethargic. When you increase your body’s T3 levels, you will increase your metabolism, therefore using more of the calories that you ingest.
Clenbuterol is one of the most popular steroids for cutting. The reason for that is simple; it stimulates the heart and central nervous system. Those effects are very similar to those of epinephrine and amphetamines. Therefore, you will see an increase in rapid fat burning, excitability, increased energy, and greater determination. One of the best things about Clenbuterol is that it will allow the retention of any muscle mass that you have, or gain while using it.
Nolvadex is the tradename of Tamoxifen citrate. Its primary use is as an estrogen blocker to treat breast cancer. However, in the case of steroids for cutting, as you have seen, blocking estrogen is a necessity. Blocking estrogen will stop you from gaining water weight, and keep that ripped look that you want.
hCG or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is often called the “pregnancy hormone.” However, hCG injections are an alternative to testosterone replacement for men who have a deficiency of the hormone. Increasing testosterone will aid in muscle building, and therefore fat loss. However, it is worth noting that this is one of the only steroids on this list that will cause gynecomastia or fluid retention. Therefore, use it with caution.
Best Steroids for Cutting – Beginners
There are many anabolic steroids on the market that are safe and effective for use. Not only are they safe for you to build your muscles, but they are also often considered one of the best ways to improve and repair your muscles for hard training.
Steroids can be hazardous in the wrong hands. And even with reasonable use, anabolic steroids can lead to unpleasant side effects. However, certain anabolic steroids are safer than others. If you are careful about which steroids you cycle in, you will be able to reduce the adverse side effects significantly.
In this section, I’m going to reveal the top 3 safest steroids – perfect for a beginner who has thought about anabolic steroids but is careful about putting their health at risk.
Note: You should only take the following steroids in oral form (this is if you are a beginner). You should not start injecting until you have gone through several cycles and have experimented with many different anabolic steroids.
We have already been through this steroid above. However, Stanozolol is one of the mildest steroids, with many beginners often losing their raw “steroid virginity” with a test cycle.
As a rule, steroids that help you pack a ton of strength and size also lead to some violent side effects; Stanozolol is the exception. That is not to say that you will not notice any side effects on the test, but it is undoubtedly one of the safest steroids to take and probably the most harmless substance on the planet.
Some people stack Stanozolol with Dianabol in their first steroid cycle, which is also an option. You can experience a few more sides that combine the two, but you will have more significant muscle gains and fat loss.
Again, we have been through this steroid above, and it is very similar to Winstrol. However, Oxandrolone is such a mild/safe steroid that even women use it. Oxandrolone is a cutting steroid that has excellent fat burning qualities, perfect for someone trying to lose weight. Although your strength on Oxandrolone is likely to increase, you won’t pack much (if any) size; that makes it very useful for cutting, but pretty pointless for bulking.
Oxandrolone is one of the best steroids to take if you want six-pack abs. Burning stubborn fat, especially around the lower abdomen, is another impressive property of Oxandrolone. You can stack Oxandrolone with testosterone and/or Clenbuterol in an eight-week cutting cycle.
Methandienone would certainly not be on this list because it is much harder on the human body. In tablet form, however, methandienone is not an uncomfortable steroid, and users experience BIG gains in muscle mass. In terms of bulking, methandienone is a better version of testosterone. However, the victim of these additional gains is that you will experience more side effects than testosterone.
The main side effect associated with oral methandienone is that your liver is taxed quite a bit. But of all the organs in the body – the liver should be the least of your worries as it is super resilient and is likely to recover after the cycle.
Your liver can take years to be broken and still be fine if the substance that caused the damage is taken away. Just look at alcoholics and the number of decades they have sabotaged their liver without ever rejuvenating because they drink a lot every day. That is the reason why you only cycle steroids for 8-12 weeks at a time so that your hormones and organs can normalize again so that you stay in good health.
Harsh Cutting Steroids
We will go into a smaller amount of detail on these harsher cutting steroids in this article, as they need looking at separately. However, we will still show you what some of them are. Here is a list of steroids that you should only take if you are an experienced steroid user:
- STANOZOLOL LA PHARMA
- OXANABOL BRITISH DRAGON
- DIANABOL DS BODY RESEARCH
DIANABOL DS often leads to high water retention. When the body retains water, it is more difficult for blood to flow, so hypertension is inevitable.
OXANABOL can cause an increase in blood pressure, but your skin and mind can also cramp. Negative thoughts and freaky dreams can result from taking Anavar.
STANOZOLOL side effects are almost the same as DANABOL DS … but less nasty.
The above side effects are just a few of the symptoms that people experience when they don’t respond well to these compounds. That is not to say that you have the same negative experiences, but you should not take them until you have taken safer steroids.
There are so many steroids available at the moment, and that number is likely to increase. Knowing which are the best steroids for cutting can be a difficult task, especially if you are a beginner. However, with the use of this article, we hope that you have a better understanding of which steroids are the best for you. Always remember to do adequate research before you get into any of them.
One word of warning, though. If you are starting your experimenting with the best steroids for cutting, you will need to be very careful. The list at the top of this article is only ever used for athletes that have extensive knowledge of steroids and their bodies ‘ abilities to withstand them.
