A testosterone derivative, Dianabol (Dbol) displays strong properties, both anabolic and moderately androgenic, that render it easy for use, with high effectiveness. The principal property of Dbol is normally in the area of body mass bulk phasing in training to bring about exceptional benefits in amassing bulk and strength, compared to the structurally alike Equipoise compound which is considered an equally effective cutting or lean-mass build up steroid tool.
In the normal course, because of its androgenic factors, though moderate, Dianabol is meant only for masculine use, as it may lead to women experiencing undesirably strong virilization characteristics. If notwithstanding, certain women consciously choose to use it, the dosage must be carefully confined to a low dosage of 5mg, when it can still be extremely effective in encouraging new muscle development.
It may be noted that while the recommended daily dosage is (20-25mg) spread over 4-5 tablets, increasing this intake would not have any considerable extra benefit in building the desired mass, but will at most times lead to noticeable adverse side effects.
Dianabol carries a brief half-life of just 3 to 5 hours. Consequently, the two ways in which the daily dosage may be administered are as follows:
- A single daily dose results in a fluctuating blood level, varying throughout the day, blood concentration peaking after about 1.5 to 3 hours of administration. With a single dose in the morning before a scheduled program of strenuous training, peak blood concentration is well matched with the gym program, and assists in building mass and gaining strength.
- The 2nd option is of splitting the dosage over the day which enables maintaining a constant blood concentration throughout the day, although at a lower peak blood level, but for a longer time. It is advisable that usage cycles should be normally kept under 8 weeks to avoid any adverse side effects.
Dianabol may be well combined with many other steroids, and excellently, with a not-so-active anabolic Deca Durabolin. A conjunction of Dianabol and Deca Durabolin can produce exceptional muscular and power benefits, with incidental side effects being not more bothersome than if Dianabol is used in isolation.
For increase of mass, a long-acting testosterone ester such as Testosterone Enanthate may be combined as gains out of such a combination would be greater, but with protective ancillary drugs to counter any side effects.
