One of the most popular oral steroids available, Dianabol (also referred to commonly as “Dbol”, or “Diana”) has stood the test of times and remained by far one of the most popular and effective anabolic steroids used by bodybuilders on every level of the experience spectrum. Dianabol is the name given by the Ciba brand for the substance Methandrostenolone. Dianabol is no longer produced by pharmaceutical companies but is widely available by many underground labs, producing 5mg, 10mg and 50mg tablets typically. Why is Dianabol so popular? This is mainly down to a few important factors; it is an oral steroid so it is very appealing to inexperienced steroids users who do not want to use injectable compounds, it is widely available, it is very cheap compared to other anabolic steroids, and most importantly – it is very effective at causing rapid gains in muscle and strength gains. Due to its massive popularity we thought it would be great to have an article that will aid anybody that wishes to embark on a Dianabol cycle.
Dosages of a Dianabol cycle
The common dose for Dianabol is 30-50mg each day, with a cycle that would usually last between 4 and 6 weeks. 30-40mg would be an effective dose for a person that is new to Dianabol, resulting in great gains in muscle mass and strength, whilst restricting possible side effects. More experience users may wish to take a slightly higher dosage, although like most other compounds, there is a dosage level where the muscle and strength gains plateau off and the side effects heighten, resulting in a point in which it is not worth increasing the dosage. Most experienced users will rarely take a dosage over 70-80mg per day.
Experienced users may wish to stack Dianabol with other steroids that are typically used for mass cycles. Testosterone Enanthate and Deca-Durabolin, for example, with a diet high in calories and much needed nutrients for growth. Many novices start off with Dianabol as a stand alone for their first anabolic steroid cycle, however. Dianabol, a steroid that can bring about great gains in muscle mass, whilst being a widely available oral steroid, is much welcomed by the inexperienced and needle shy user.
What supplements to take with Dianabol
Milk Thistle, Liv-52 and ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid) are often taken with oral 17-aa steroids to aid with liver protection. There are other “off-the-shelf” products available that offer a range of substances that can aid with liver protection whilst on cycle, so searching online supplement suppliers may provide some fruitful results.
