What is Clenbuterol
Clenbuterol is a steroid-like chemical compound which was initially developed to treat asthma in horses. In its oral form, it works by stimulating both the heart and the central nervous system, and has a similar stimulating effect on the body as epinephrine and amphetamines, though it works in a rather different way in the body.
Clenbuterol is known in the sports circles, and especially in the bodybuilding one, as one of the best available agents in order to shed body fat; it can be used as a weight loss aid because it is able to increase the metabolism. As well as reducing body fat and weight, it also allows the user to retain both muscle mass and physical strength without any particular effort other than a proper eating schedule and a correct training program.
It is namely a beta agonist receptor, which consequently works by elevating the metabolic rate and lipolysis. It does indeed represent one of the most ideal solutions when the aim is to lose that stubborn body fat and to do so in a relatively fast manner.
Results You Can Expect from Using Clenbuterol
The benefits of Clenbuterol are in general not so different from those of the vast majority of the other types of anabolic steroids, but they are nonetheless ‘brutally’ effective and highly sought after by those individuals who aim to reduce and even to almost completely destroy the fat deposits in their bodies. Some will aim to attain a body fat ratio of only 5-6%, which is not unheard of, but very difficult (though not impossible) to reach.
Clenbuterol however helps quite well in defining one’s muscles and contributes quite substantially in losing body weight. Its usage is very popular both among men and women, being a choice that can help effectively to reach the afore-mentioned goals.
We did not yet mention that it’s very popular among women, and so for a very precise reason. Female athletes love it because it does not cause the side effects carried along by many other androgenic anabolic steroids, such as the general development of masculine sexual features, together with the deepening of the voice and the growth of body hair.
All the above listed side effects do not otherwise occur by using supplements containing Clenbuterol, that by the way are easily found nowadays on the internet. In fact, it is not quite a secret that many bodybuilders do benefit hugely from the typical characteristics of Clen. That is, to be able to lose body weight (fat) while retaining most (if not all) of their hard gained muscle mass.
Indeed, one of the main advantages which come from supplementing Clenbuterol by means of oral supplements is the fact that it’s possible in such a way to reduce in a definite manner both abdominal and also visceral fat. Add this to Clen’s ability to help athletes in keeping their strength and to train more intensely and you will see by yourself why Clenbuterol is always welcome among users.
Clenbuterol has also the additional advantage, though on a potential basis, to promote significant and continuous improvements in the levels of transportation of bloodstream all throughout the human body. This is coupled with a definite improvement in aerobic capabilities.
Additionally, it can also stimulate the central nervous system and the beta-2 receptors, which means that muscular growth itself can be increased and, in turn, there is a higher chance of improving the storage of protein into the muscles.
How To Maximize Your Clenbuterol Results
However, despite being one of the best products for those who are aiming to lose body weight and to develop the best muscle mass possible, it should never be forgotten how hugely important it is to follow an appropriate and healthy diet plan. When seeking to lose body weight, especially through the elimination of fat deposits, both your diet choices and your training program(s) need to be at the forefront of your decisions.
So, thanks to the use of those supplements based on Clenbuterol, you will have a great ally in your quest to lose body weight and burn fat. But it almost goes without saying that proper administration of this otherwise great item – both in terms of dosages and cycles – will definitely be your winning key.
Any irresponsible use of Clenbuterol may cause problems, like cardiac hypertrophy. Thoughtfulness here is a guide we cannot leave unheard, so it is of paramount importance to seek qualified counseling by talking first to your MD and then also to a professional adviser. They will both lead you to safely administering your body the correct amounts of Clenbuterol at the right times.
Using Clenbuterol to Improve Athletic Performance and Results
According to some studies that have repeatedly shown the same results, Clenbuterol increments our muscular masses according to processes which are not however yet totally understood in all their various aspects. What has been found is that Clen seems to be able to block the activity of certain enzymes which otherwise would break down proteins that are already in the muscles. This goes to show that, should this finding be confirmed by additional studies, Clenbuterol would be definitely an anti-catabolic product and would be able to atrophy massively the muscular tissues, hence why it would determine such great muscular growth.
However, generally speaking, the benefits which oral Clenbuterol allows the user when cycled and dosed appropriately (for dosages and cycles in a more in-depth analysis, please refer to our specifications later in this same article), include the following, though not being limited to these alone:
- A better breathing capacity.
- A hugely improved metabolic rate, which in turn determines a potentially higher ability to eliminate fat deposits from the body.
- An improved utilization of oxygen, which in turn improves the resistance levels of your whole body.
- Much improved levels of physical energy.
- A potentially improved capacity of assimilating the nutritive principles contained in the foods you eat.
Once we consider all the above benefits together, it is safe to say that almost all athletes and individuals who are trying to improve their aesthetics can definitely benefit from the addition of this particular item in their daily regimes. It is also correct to state that Clenbuterol pills will be very effective when included in a recomp cycle or when integrated in order to improve one’s athletic resistance rather than in fact play a truly major role in a phase where the goal is to improve muscular mass.
It is also true to say again that you should implement this item in a very responsible manner if you want to avoid all negative effects. Here are some which you should be aware of if you want to implement Clenbuterol effectively and safely.
Side Effects of Clenbuterol
This product belongs to the general category of bronchodilators. These work by expanding the upper respiratory tract, thus determining an ‘easier’ breathing capacity as the consequence of the more blood being carried and/or of an accelerated metabolism.
Although the above may appear to be an advantageous feature, it also means that it may be easy to ‘over-excite’ your organism, thus determining a vast series of potential issues while supplementing it.
The main Side effects of Clenbuterol include, although not being limited to:
- Accelerated heartbeat
- Nervousness and irritability
- Severe dehydration
While the above side effects are not to be under-estimated, they are of a relatively mild nature and can be counteracted in an easy manner. However, please keep in mind that significant overdoses may determine much more severe issues – as cardiac arrests, to say one very severe issue we already mentioned before in this article. You need thus to make sure that you will administer this item according to the following general guidelines regarding Clenbuterol’s dosages, given that by doing so you will definitely get yourself the best help in reducing the possibility that negative effects may occur.
Clenbuterol Dosages and Cycles
The proper supplementation of Clenbuterol requires some good strategy. There are in fact three general dosages of Clenbuterol which shall be adhered to, given that none of them are plainly right or wrong in principle, but only relies on terms of choice regarding sheer individual preferences.
The first method is the so-called continuous method. It requires an initial daily usage of anything between 20mcg and 40mcg per day of Clen for a period of time spanning from two to three weeks. After this initial period of time, the dosage may be incremented by yet another 20mcg to 40mcg per day, and so on for another two to three weeks, keeping the dosage at this level until the user has reached their goal.
The second method is called the rotation method. This method requires an initial administration of 20mcg per day, which is then increased after a few days up to the dosage of maximum 200mcg in two weeks. After which the user stops using the product for two weeks, and then resumes the usage method as before stated.
The third and last method is the method called intermediate. It requires using Clenbuterol initially by implementing a dosage of 40mcg, increasing then the weekly dosage up to a maximum of 200mcg in a period of time of eight to ten weeks in total.
Any one of the above methods will be very effective for whatever type of users, from beginner to advanced. It may be however useful to note that beginners should – as always with this category of products – start by administering the lowest dosage and then increase this dosage little by little in a progressive fashion.
