Dianabol is an anabolic steroid that also has androgenic properties and these two traits allow it to work well for adding both strength and size. Danabol noticeably enhances both protein synthesis and glycogenolysis more rapidly than other anabolic steroids available on the market. This steroid is effective for augmenting the body’s lean mass. This is why it is so popular among bodybuilders and has been for decades. When users ingest this drug they improve their intake of carbohydrates and this alone is why users use this steroid for their bulking or gaining phases.
Starting at 20 mg per day for men, Danabol is really potent and can significantly increase muscle mass. You can of course increase the dose to 30 mg or even 50 mg if you’re an experienced athlete and user. Doses above 50 mg can be highly toxic for the liver. As with all oral steroids, a good liver protector is recommended.
How to use:
The final note on Dianabol administration is when to take it during a cycle. The most common point of use is as a kick-start to a new off-season mass gaining cycle. This will give the individual fast and notable gains early on while the slower injectable steroids are building in their system. This type of use will also result in the most dramatic gains in weight. Another option of use is mid-cycle during a period often referred to as plateau busting. During any cycle you will hit a wall and the gains will slow or come to a screeching halt. Introducing Dianabol during this phase will see you break through the plateau or sticking point, and your progress will continue. Due to the hepatotoxicity of Dbol, and due to the fact that most cycles will fall in the 8-12 week range, most will only use Dianabol for one of those purposes during a single cycle.
