If you’re goal is to add bulk there are a number of steroid only cycles and stacks that you can use add on some serious size and gains. But you have to bear in mind that what works for one guy in most cases will not produce the same results.
There are many factors that can effect the end result such as age, diet, lifestyle, fitness levels, health to name just a few.
However, there are specific anabolic steroids that are made solely to bulk you up and we’ve listed them below for you.
These steroids can be used on their own or stacked with other steroids.
The Beginner Bulking Cycle
This cycle stacks testosterone and deca durabolin together and is a good choice for those who are trying out anabolics for the first time.
The test/ deca stack is very popular and well proven stack that can guarantee impressive gains with minimum side effects.
However, the side effects that you need to be aware of are high blood pressure, water retention and gyno, increase in cholesterol levels (male breasts).
For these reasons running a cycle support is very important. I minimize these side effects we suggest a daily dose of 20 mg of Nolvadex.
Give yourself a period of at least 2 to 3 weeks to clean out your system before starting a new cycle.
During this off-cycle period take Nolvadex to help your body recover its natural testosterone levels. We suggest 40 mgs of Nolvadex for the first two weeks and lower it to 20 mgs during the third week.
The Kickstarter Cycle for Beginners
This cycle combines the bulking powers of Test/Deca/Dbol.
This is another great bulking cycle for newbies. Its basically the test/deca cycle with dbol added to it.
The addition of Dianabol is to give you fast results in terms of size and strength at the beginning of the cycle. That’s why its often referred to as a front loading cycle.
Using a three steroid cycle means there is the potential for more and harsher side effects. Any oral anabolic steroid pill will be harsh on the liver so its important to keep this vital organ as healthy as possible on cycle.
For example, avoid all alcohol and take a liver support supplement such as milk thistle or taurine. Due to its harsh effects on the liver an oral DBols cycle or any oral steroid for that matter should only be used for a maximum of 6 weeks only.
With this cycle you will definitely need to take a PCT that should begin once the cycle ends. The PCT should include a SERM like Clomid or Nolvadex to combat the effects of increased estrogen levels and re-balance the bodies natural testosterone levels.
Take a SERM for 3 weeks from the end of the test/dbol/deca cycle. For the first two weeks take 40 milligrams of Nolvadex then 20 milligrams for the remaining week.
Advanced Stack for Lean Bulking
As the name suggests advanced stacks are not for beginners they are for experts who have considerable experience of using a variety of cycles, running PCTs and whose bodies have built up a certain tolerance to anabolic and androgenic steroid hormones.
Before running an advanced cycle you should have already have progressed through the beginner and intermediate cycle stages and have at least four to five years of experience of bodybuilding.
Furthermore, advanced cycles are only suitable if you have already reached your bodies physical limits and have attained a high level of lean muscle mass and strength.
You should also have considerable experience of the potential side effects of steroid use and post cycle therapies to mitigate the risks.
Advanced Bulking Steroid Cycle
The following advanced cycle stacks 4 steroids which are testosterone prop, masteron,trenbolone acetate and anavar. The aim of this cycle is to produce hard lean muscle mass.
There are some points you need to be aware of. For example, trenbolone will produce very hard lean muscle with plenty vascularity. This is due to the steroids low water retention. However, tren can drop your libido like a stone. For this reason, testosterone has been icluded.
Now testosterone is unique in that its both highly anabolic and androgenic. You’re not going to experience any real water retention unlike oral steroids.
Masteron is an injectable androgenic steroid that does not aromatize or convert to estrogen. This means its perfect for getting that lean cut muscular look.
The cycle should be run as follows:
100 mg of Testosterone Propionate daily.
200 mg of Trenbolone Acetate daily
75 mgs of Masteron daily
50 mgs of Anavar (Oxandrolone) daily
0.5 mg of Arimidex daily
For some guys these dosage amounts would be considered moderate, however you are free to increase them if so wish and at your own risk.
Of course, pay close attention to your diet and ensure that you are feeding your body with healthy nutrients.
I need to point out that make sure you are ready for steroids. Really you should be over 25 years of age and have reached your physical capacity through many years of consistent training. If you have not reached that stage, then use legal steroid alternatives instead to give you that extra edge.
