If you are new to the subject, this blog will discuss some of the terminology used in the world of anabolic steroids. It will also include some guidelines on an effective, yet safe steroid cycle and it will advise you on ways to reduce the chances of possible side effects.
What is a Beginner Steroid Cycle?
A beginner steroid cycle is the intake of one or two steroid compounds over a limited period of time. This cycle is applied by those who have had no prior experience of steroid use, although they will usually understand the risks involved.
Injectable or Oral Steroids
Steroids can be taken orally or via injections. For beginners who are just starting a steroid cycle, it is advisable to stick to oral steroids only. Injectable steroids can be unnerving for beginners.
For the first cycle, beginners can choose from Dianabol, Anavar or Winstrol. If you choose an oral based steroid cycle, the intake and dosage of steroid compounds should be limited to protect your liver.
Beginners can also try injectable steroids if they feel they are up to it. Injectable compounds allow the use of a wider range of anabolic steroids such as testosterone, Nandrolene, Trenbolene and Sustanon 250.
What Kind of Steroid Should you Use?
Steroids are safe as long as you know the compounds and correct dosages. Before proceeding to the beginner steroid cycle, it is important to understand which compound is best for you and its associated possible side effects.
This steroid compound is an injectable steroid that is exceedingly effective for rapid strength gain and muscle build-up. While taking testosterone, expect androgenic related side effects like aggressiveness, oily skin and acne.
As the advised steroid compound for the beginner steroid cycle, it is a very effective oral steroid that will help to develop muscle mass. This steroid should only be taken for a limited period in order to avoid liver problems.
This oral steroid provides steadier gains in muscle mass compared with Dianabol. Unlike other oral steroids, Winstrol does not have any oestrogen side effects. Due to the absence of water retention from the drug muscles will have a more defined look.
Also known as Nandrolene Decanoate, this compound is similar to testosterone but with fewer androgenic side effects. It is not advisable for steroid users to take this kind of compound when competing in drug tested sports, as the trace of DECA can stay in the body for many months.
After the beginner steroid cycle has ended, you would be advised to follow up with post cycle therapy (PCT). This will help to restore the natural hormone balance of the body. To give you more understanding of this therapy, we will discuss it further in our next blog.
