presents you another cutting cycle for summer which will make you look hard and solid. As a base we will use testosterone enanthate however you may replace it with testosterone propionate as in some individuals enanthate will make visible water retention but I dont think this is a problem as you dont prepare for the contest, right? 🙂 On the other hand switching to propionate will bring you another headache as you will have to inject it EOD plus you will inject Primobolan ( Methenolone Enanthate) 2-3 times per week so having to inject primo and test propionate will keep you really busy and will not give your injection sites enough time to rest.
I have found SD to be a far superior alternative to Anadrol, as it is not only at least equally effective for increasing muscle fullness (more so in many instances), but it does not carry with it the same risk of sub-q water retention. Pure, properly compounded SD (20-30 mg/day) results in a hard, dense, and dry appearance, which works synergistically with the other orals mentioned above to ensure you come in as full and conditioned as possible. However, as with all steroids, I suggest experimenting with it prior to the competition in order to gauge its effects on your own body, as a small percentage of individuals do not respond as well to this drug. Another option is Dimethazine. This oral is closely related to SD (it is 2 SD molecules attached by an azine bond) and provides visually identical effects at a slightly higher dosage (45 mg/day).
This subject would not be complete if we did not touch on the ability of AAS to incite fat loss. There is much speculation in this arena, as many of the drugs BB’rs utilize during prep were never clinically studied in human beings, leaving us with the sometimes job of discerning which drugs work best. While anecdotal evidence has served us well over the years, the presence of a clinical study offers further confirmation that we have been on the right rack (or not). Fortunately, two of our most commonly used pre-contest drugs have been proven capable of increasing the rate of fat loss. These are testosterone and trenbolone. Trenbolone in particular has consistently demonstrated impressive results, which is why I almost always recommend its inclusion as a core injectable. Some individuals choose shy away from tren due to its high side effect profile, but for those who can tolerate the drug, few, if any drugs will offer an equal number of benefits during contest prep.
There has also been talk of terminating the use of all injectables at 2 weeks out. Advocates of this method claim that it is necessary for achieving optimal condition. The logic used to sustain this assertion is that injectables, by way of intramuscular delivery, result in a minor degree of water retention via increased inflammation. It is true that even slightly invasive procedures, such as an injection, will produce an inflammatory effect, but the level of inflammation necessary to result in a visible response is unlikely to occur when using non-irritating, sterile steroid preparations, especially when delivered with a 25 g. syringe or smaller. If anyone is worried about this, one can simply discontinue all injections at 3-4 days out. By the time the comp rolls around, the inflammation will no longer be present.
There are also some who complain of joint pain when using Winstrol. As a steroid that does not aromatize there will be no water retention but the “dry feeling” may not be what many think it is. Most who use the steroid will be physique athletes or gym rats during a cutting phase. They will also typically add it into a plan late in the diet once they’re already lean. Typically, when you become very lean, bodybuilding lean, this makes the joints a little uncomfortable. With or without Winstrol this discomfort could potentially exist. As for pro athletes who have nearly every last steroid at their disposal, remember, if Winstrol weren’t effective in competitive sports so many athletes wouldn’t make it a primary and favorite choice. In fact, the combo of Winstrol with low doses of Nandrolone is a very common stack among many athletes, and this stack will greatly eliminate any potential joint discomfort should it exist.
