Description Dianabol (Methandienone)
One can say that Dianabol is a legendary oral steroid with strong anabolic and androgenic properties. It significantly increases strength and protein synthesis in muscles. Besides it greatly improves general well-being, mood and appetite. In other words Dianabol is fast and powerful steroid for gaining mass.
Usually bodybuilders take Dianabol to increase gains in the beginning of a cycle or to avoid the loss of gains between cycles. At the beginning of its usage bodybuilder can gain 2-4 pounds a week. This effect keeps up during the first 6 weeks of a cycle. Yet, this gain is not a dry mass, as it appears due to hypertrophy of existing muscle cells and water retention.
Initially only weight lifters took Dianabol due to its ability to quickly promote strength and muscle mass. But later it became popular among other sportsmen. However it is not perfect drug for performance athletes as it reduces speed and durability. Nevertheless Dianabol keeps position of a drug number among professional bodybuilders and amateurs.
Now Dianabol is not as widely used as it was. This is due to doping control in sports. However, there are still some versions of bodybuilding and power-lifting where anti-doping rules are not that strict.
Dosage and usage
The usual Dianabol dosage is 15 to 40 mg a day. Most professional bodybuilders use 40 mg/day, meanwhile for novices 20 mg is enough. For second cycle you can increase the dose up to 30-40 mg.
If your cycle is long, you can improve gains (after 8 weeks) by adding 200-400 mg of Deca-Durabolin or 200-600 mg of Primobolan instead of increasing Dianabol dosage. You can add testosterone only in the case when Dianabol standalone or its combination with deca doesn’t provide sufficient gains.
Though it greatly stimulates protein synthesis, the mechanism of this process is unclear. Researches think that the substance interacts with unknown receptor on the cell surface, which boosts protein synthesis. Besides, Dianabol increases recovery of glycogen and decreases activity of cortisol. Thus it reduces destruction of muscle fibers after workout.
Dianabol is hard to aromatize and in its structure it resembles boldenone. However, during aromatization it transforms to a more powerful than estradiol substance – 17-methyl-estradiol. So, if you exceed the dosage 25-30 mg/day, large part of your gains will be due to water retention. And the water in its turn will leave the body when the cycle is over.
Also one should mention that Dianabol produces fat-burning effect by increasing the level of dopamine in the body. So, one can use it in fat burning cycles by stacking it with non-aromatizing substances like Boldenone, Trenbolone or Oxandrolone.
You should use Dianabol standalone if the dosage is 50 – 100 mg / day. Yet you can get much better results if you combine it with other substances even at the dosage 25-50 mg / day. The half-life of Dianabol is 3.5-4.5 hours, so you should divide the daily dosage into 5-6 parts (at least 2-3). Take it at regular intervals preferably during the meal.
Stacking and cycles
You can combine it with substances which stabilize androgen receptor: testosterone, trenbolone, nandrolone, methenolone, oxandrolone. You can also stack it with boldenone. Do not combine it with methandienone, oxymetholone or fluoxymesterone. Though, they could provide quick muscle gains (through water retention), we do not recommend using these combinations due to high load on the liver.
Usually one should combine fast acting substances like Dianabol (or anadrol) with long acting ones – deca, boldenone or testosterone esters. For example, Dianabol (danabol, naposim, methandienone) 40-50 mg/day + deca (deca durabolin, nandrolone decanoate) 400 mg/week. The duration of this cycle should be 8 weeks.
We recommend using anti-estrogen (tamoxifen or clomid 1 tab/ED) from the third week of a cycle and one more week after the cycle. Also take LIV-52 for liver protection. It is very important to use anti-estrogen, as it restores natural testosterone production. Liv-52 is optional, but it can make this cycle absolutely safe.
The 8 week cycle requires : Deca: 3200mg, Dianabol ~ 2240-2800 mg, Tamoxifen/Clomid: 50 tabs, Liv-52: 1 bottle. At the beginning of a cycle use Dianabol standalone for the first 3-6 weeks at the dosage 20 – 100 mg/ED. Usually bodybuilders take 40-50 mg for 4 weeks then switch to long-acting injectables.
For advanced users
Advanced users can do Dianabol 40 mg/Ed + Anavar (oxandrolone) 30-40 mg/ED or Winstrol 50 mg/ ED. For volume and strength cycle use Dianabol 40 mg/ED + testosterone (enanthate, sustanon) 250 mg/ week + optional Deca (nandrolone decanoate) – 200-400 mg/week.
Though Dianabol (methandienone) is a bulking substance, it is not for pre-competition period. This is due to aromatization and substantial water retention. If you are going to take part in a contest, then you have to take anti-estrogen (proviron or tamoxifen / clomiphen). Besides, you need to combine Dianabol with cutting or non-bulking substances like Winstrol (better injectable), Parabolan, Oxandrolone (anavar) or Masteron
You can also use Dianabol as a bridging agent between cycles at the dose 10mg/ED with intensive usage of the drugs recovering testosterone production – tamoxifen, clomiphen and HCG (pregnyl) – immediately after the cycle. At this dosage it will not suppress your testosterone production, but will keep it up until your glands recover after the cycle
It can make positive reaction in doping tests for up to 2 months.
Side effects and PCT (Post Cycle Therapy)
If you take Dianabol at the dosage up to 20 mg/ED, the side-effects are rare. If you exceed 40 mg/ED (sometimes even less) you can expect negative changes in liver values. They quickly disappear after you stop using it. It would be better if you take liver-protectors (Liv-52 or Essentiale Forte) during the cycle.
The duration of a cycle should be 6-8 weeks and then a rest for the same period is recommended. Nevertheless, even after 14 week cycle any serious problems were not found.
Despite the fact that Dianabol transforms into 17-methyl-estradiol it represses natural testosterone production to a lesser extent, than nandrolone. A single intake of Dianabol 100 mg between 7 am and 12 pm represses endogenous testosterone production by 30-40 %. Meanwhile prolonged usage of the drug causes complete suppression of testosterone production.
Among other side effects one should mention acne (due to dihydrotestosterone), high water retention and gynecomastia. However, these side-effects become notable only at the doses exceeding 40 mg / day for 6-8 weeks. You can treat acne by Airol, and gynecomastia by tamoxifen/clomiphen.
There also can be high blood pressure and increased heartbeat, which can be treated by antihypertensives. Theoretically Dianabol can promote hair loss, but there are no scientific data proving it. But if it happens you can cure it with finasteride (finpecia, proscar).
Usually during the cycle athletes take 20 mg tamoxifen or 50 mg clomiphene daily. If your dosage of Dianabol is too high additional proviron could be a good solution. When the cycle is over, take the triple dosage of tamoxifen/ clomiphen at the first day and double dosage for the following 2 weeks. If your dosage was not too high, take the usual dose of tamoxifen/ clomiphen on the 2nd week after the cycle.
Injectable Dianabol (methandienone)
For the recent years injectable form of methandienone became available on the market. This molecule is quite stable due to methylation of 17-α position which prevents it from activation. Thus most injectable Dianabol stays inactive. If we remove methyl group and replace it with other ether we will get Boldenone. So, its better to use oral Dianabol or injectable boldenone than to play with premature substances.
