Many users will agree to the fact that Dianabol or Dbol (also available as DANABOL DS) overtakes Testosterone in popularity as an anabolic steroid. By the way, we are not talking about TRT users. But, if you have administered steroids for professional uses or recreationally, you will have all the words to appreciate Dbol. It is a popular steroid. And why not? Dianabol is a ‘feel-good’ Steroid, the ‘easiest steroid’ that will turn you massive in a matter of days. When you use it correctly, it can be a real asset in the stack of any steroid user.
Well, this is only the beginning. Dive deeper into the following passages to explore more about Danabol.
Dbol the ‘Hercules steroid’!!
Users call Danabol with that name since it makes the users feel in that way. In general, the users struggle to hit more than 6reps on the bench with 100 lbs dumbbells. However, on Dianabol, the users can cruise to 9reps with 125 lbs dumbbell. And still, you can have more fuel left in your tank! Thus, it promotes an incredible gain.
However, with the progressing time, the users might realize that their body is not tolerating the compound as smoothly as it used to before. Maybe that is why it’s been a while since we have taken a break from using old D. However, have you always been curious about including Dianabol in your stack? Or, are you confused by those half-baked facts you read on the internet?
Relax. Here’s a brief introduction to Dianabol, one of the best anabolic steroids in the bodybuilding community.
Dianabol in a nutshell
Dianabol is a derivative anabolic steroid of Testosterone. It is 17CAA methylated suitable for oral consumption. It is one of those limited anabolic compounds in the industry that got developed only for enhancing performance. When it is about the bodybuilding industry, Danabol DS has always been a chief option for many competitive bodybuilders. They prefer using it in their stacks in one way or another.
There are many advantages to administering Dbol/Danabol. But if you are willing to know the most notable one, it is the speed and intensity it kicks in. It will leave you jaw-dropped when you know that Danabol kicks in within 3 to 4 days. Most other oil-based injectable steroids wouldn’t until it is two or three weeks of a steroid cycle. That means, by the third week, you will gain nearly 5-10 lbs. of weight. Thus, you are going to get stronger than ever.
Chemical structure of Dbol
Dianabol/Danabol is the brand name for Methandrostenolone. It is an anabolic steroid derived from Testosterone. There is a double bond at the Carbon 1 and 2 positions.
And you will find a methyl group in the 17th position. It crucially tones down the androgenic character of the drug. Also, it enhances the anabolic nature along with allowing it to stay active in the liver for a long time.
Common Names of Danabol
Methandrostenolone hit the market under the brand name Dianabol by Ciba until 1983. Then they finally stopped the supply of the compound because of the mounting pressure from the FDA. However, that name was synonymous with the drug. Some other nicknames of this compound are Anabol, Danabol, Vetanabol, and the D-Bomb.
This steroidal compound is potential as an anabolic steroid. Maybe that is why it has inspired many users to run standalone Dianabol cycles. In these cycles, people use it as a base compound. It might sound unbelievable. But, the users may gain up to 10—15 lbs. of weight and incredible strength while undergoing the cycle.
However, the point here to note is that Dbol will shut down the natural testosterone production in your body. And if your system doesn’t have the required test supply in your body, it will be impossible for you to sustain the gains you made during the cycle.
It is crucial to pair Dianabol with a Testosterone base
It is even more beneficial to use it as a jump starter to a steroid cycle. Follow Dbol at 25mg/day for 8-weeks pairing it with Testosterone (any ester) at 350mg/week. By the fourth week, when Testosterone will kick-in, you will get stronger and huger. Some users also prefer running Dianabol at 50mg/day for 4-weeks only. It helps in making the most of the cycle at the maximum bearable dose.
Well, it is subjective. And it depends on how much of this compound you can tolerate. According to the experts, you should run it at lower doses for a prolonged time. Anyways, do not follow a Dbol cycle for more than 8-weeks.
Gains of Dbol
Dianabol always had a loop of mystery around it. There was a time when fitness enthusiasts considered it the aid for all sorts of gains. Strength, ripped body, fat loss, muscle gain – it doesn’t matter what your fitness goal is. They believed that Dianabol could get them a one-stop solution. These days, people are more aware of the results that one can achieve with Dianabol. If you don’t know, check out the list below. Here are the prime benefits of administering Dbol.
- More strength
When it comes to getting stronger, Dianabol is a brilliant aid. With it, you will experience dramatic strength gains by the fourth or fifth day of the cycle. Your regular workout weights will transform into warmup weights if you look back to your previous best results. It happened that the first-timers ended up with damaging ligament or tendon. It is because their bodies weren’t capable enough to cope with the weight they were lifting all of a sudden.
- Mass gain
The users will experience dramatic muscle gain within the three weeks of Dbol cycle. It is hard to decide the exact number. But many first time users gain up to 15 lbs. in the first few days of running a Dianabol cycle. And they might gain up to 20 Lbs or more by the end of the routine. Relax. There is nothing fancy about it. It’s a steroid that is easy to understand and use.
Risks of administering Danabol DS
Although it is one of the simplest health compounds, people make many mistakes with their Dianabol cycles. It mainly happens when they are unaware of the risks. Administering the high dose of this compound for a prolonged time can leave negative impacts on your health. Here are some of the side effects of taking Dbol.
High blood pressure:
Excess use of Dianabol can cause lots of water retention in some people. It will lead to high blood pressure. Yes, a healthy diet and lifestyle can help in preventing this to some extent. But, controlling blood pressure and bloat without using medication will be quite impossible. It is one of the main challenges one can face while using Danabol.
Dianabol aromatizes and can promote Gynecomastia. Therefore, you should have a SERM such as Nolvadex even before you start a cycle. Contrasting the slow-acting injectable steroids, Gynecomastia can come up overnight with Dbol. Therefore, do not consider running a Dbol-cycle without including a SERM or an AI.
Maintaining Cholesterol is one of the most crucial aspects of Dianabol usage. It can leave a negative impact on your HDL levels and overall cholesterol levels in your body. Repeated use of Dbol propels the risk of heart disease. If you don’t have a healthy cholesterol rate, avoid using Dianabol.
Using Danabol for a long time affects the natural testosterone production ability in your system. Well, this is a common side-effect that comes with any anabolic steroid.
Is it possible to retain the gains that you make during a Dbol cycle?
Well, it is a no, if you are using a solo Dianabol cycle. It will make you look like a deflated balloon when you come off it. However, if you use it with testosterone or other steroids, you will lose 50% of the glycogen and water that you are likely to gain during the Dbol cycle. However, you can retain the muscle mass that you gain by following Dbol-cycle. It will be possible since the injectable steroids will kick-in by that time.
Stacks and dosages
Don’t forget that Methandrostenolone (Danabol) is a potent drug. Therefore, you won’t probably need a high dose to get pleasing results:
The right dosage for men:
Male users should follow 15mg/day divided into two/three doses for eight to twelve weeks. Well, that might seem to be a low dose. But it can get you pleasing results. If you want to undergo multiple cycles of Dianabol, you can go up to 25-35mg or 50mg per day. But, that is the upper limit for us. We should never go above 50mg. Also, you can add Dianabol as a jump starter to your testosterone cycle in the first four weeks.
The right dose for women:
The safe and suitable dosage for women users is 5mg/day for 8-12 weeks. Even the dose of 10mg/day can promote a severe risk of virilization. You can avoid that if you follow low doses and take PCT.
Hopefully, the info presented above will help you make a better start with a Danabol cycle.
