Clenbuterol is an agonist of Beta 2 - adrenergic receptors, with an action similar to ephedrine, with the difference that clenbuterol has a stronger and longer stimulating and thermogenic effect.
Clenbuterol in the world of bodybuilding is not considered a steroid, but rather a strong medicine, but most people will call it a fat burner anyway.
It is used primarily by bodybuilders when shaping the figure.
Bodybuilders reach for this preparation and combine it with other measures when they want to reduce body fat, especially before competitions.
They combine it with the thyroid hormones t3 or the cytomel. The effects of such combinations are extremely good.
In the intervals between cycles, Clenbuterol helps maintain muscle mass.
Athletes reach for this measure when they want to get rid of excess body fat and to reduce the accumulation of fatty tissues in their body.
Clenbuterol visibly increases protein synthesis and blocks the negative effect of cortisol on muscles.
Thanks to these features, it is anti-catabolic, also when used on a low-calorie diet.
Clenbuterol greatly accelerates the liposis process and metabolism. In combination with steroids, it strengthens their action.
Athletes choose it in cycles of the so-called cutting. Its regular use is enough to achieve great results.
Due to the satisfactory results, amateurs also use this type of measure.
Clenbuterol is an agent belonging to the group of drugs that stimulate the sympathetic nervous system.
Before it was withdrawn from the pharmaceutical market in Europe and the US, it was a popular treatment for bronchial asthma.
After 30 minutes from the delivery of the Clenbuterol dose, 80 to 90% of the active substance begins to affect the body.
Peak is noted after 2-4 hours, half-life is approximately 35 to a maximum of 48 hours.
In the world of sports, the name Clenbuterol also appeared in doping mishaps,
On Clenbuterol were, Alberto Contadora (winner of the 2010 Tour de France) and baseball player Guillermo Mota.
The popularity in bodybuilding is recorded only in the 1980s, early 1990s.
Clenbuterol is taken not only by athletes and bodybuilders, but also ordinary people who want to increase their strength and muscle hardness.
Its action is not anabolic but stimulating, in this case the diet will be an important element, which should be high protein with moderate fats and carbohydrates.
There are cases in the world of bodybuilding where Clenbuterol was used as a stimulant, but its effect is short-lived.
It increases the activity of adrenaline, noradrenaline and dopamine. When they are released into the bloodstream, they begin to act on adrenergic receptors.
This results in elevated blood pressure, a faster heartbeat, and elevated blood glucose levels.
The diet that should be followed, if we want to use Clebuterol as a stimulant, should be high in carbohydrates.
Clenbuterol is also very popular among women who strive for their dream figure, they also like to reach for it.
As for the cycle itself, the maximum daily dose of Clebuterol for a man is 140 mg and for a woman the maximum is 100 mg
although from conversations with friends girls 40 mg is sometimes enough.
Of course, I do not need to write that taking Clenbuterol without a diet, i.e. not being on a caloric deficit, is pointless.
Clenbuterol should not be taken after 4 p.m. and remember to drink plenty of water: 4-6 liters a day!
The Clenbuterol cycle should last 14 days and after such a cycle it should be discontinued for another 14 days before the next 14-day cycle begins again,
below we present an example of the dosage for the first two 14-day cycles with the use of Clenbuterol.
For the first time, you should not use more than 40mcg on the first day.
Example of the first cycle:
Day 1: 20mcg
Day 2: 40mcg
Day 3: 60mcg
Day 4: 80mcg
Day 5: 80mcg (increase dose when side effects are tolerable)
Day 6-12: 100mcg
Day 13: 80mcg
Day 14: 60mcg
Example of the second cycle:
Day 1: 60mcg
Day 2: 80mcg
Day 3: 80mcg
Day 4: 100mcg
Day 5: 100mcg
Day 6-Day 12: 120mcg
Day 13: 100mcg
Day 14: 80mcg
(doses given are for men)
Clenbuterol should not be used for too long, because the body will get used to its ingredients and further effects will no longer be noticeable.
When taking Clenbuterol, you should constantly monitor your body temperature.
Due to its action, the preparation will increase the body temperature by 1 degree.
If the body temperature has not changed, it means that the preparation has ceased to work and there is no need to take it any longer.
Contraindications to taking this remedy are certainly cardiovascular diseases, diseases of the nervous system and pregnancy.
Side effects of taking Clenbuterol include, for example, high blood pressure, headaches, tremors in the body, hands, and muscle cramps.
If we want to avoid a symptom such as muscle cramps, it is enough to drink 4 to 6 liters of water every day,
eat bananas and oranges. You can also take a potassium supplement of 200-400 mg / day.
Clenbuterol vs Ephedrine vs DNP
Ephedrine increases the metabolic level by an average of 2-3%, a dose of 200mg DNP increases the metabolic level by about 30%.
Clenbuterol increases the metabolic rate by about 10%, which is why the body temperature is raised by a few degrees.
That is why DNP is the most effective tk. fat, but many people will never use it because of the consequences it causes.
It also has no anti-catabolic benefits. Ephedrine has anti-catabolic properties,
but they are ineffective due to their short half-life.
The side effects of Clenbuterol are much milder than DNP, I would say they are even milder than ECA stacks.
On Clenbuterol, people do not complain of sexual / prostate problems, as is the case with ECAs.
It probably results from the fact that Clen is usually only used for a period of 2 weeks.
