funny how Arthur Jones said no steroids were used in the colorado experiment and forgot to mention Casey wqas sick before starting. but anyway Arthur gave BillPeral Nilevar from Searle in 1958 or 1959 i believe and sure it was only 30mg but he did it for 12 weeks as everyone ran orals longer then but did lower doses. also some guys 100% back then were doing 100mg of CIBA orginal dbol and in an interview you sjhould be able to find Sergio said he got sick of needles so did 7 dbol 3 times a day and Rick Wayne said in his book Arnold had 8 for breakfast. imagine how much that would equal in modern dbol? Freddy ortiz and Pete Grymkowski took the whole 500mg bottle daily for a post show rebound pete admits it and has been seen by many and Jerry Brainum saw Freddy do that himself and on top of that drank whiskey and smoked. but they weaned off of everything, we dont do that today.
As alluded to above, one very important thing to acknowledge when using AAS (whether taking one hormone, stacking or cycling) is the risk of harmful side effects. Within a steroid cycle, the users will often stack other non-anabolic hormones into their program to maximize specific cycle objectives for example: the addition of drugs like Clenbuterol and/or Cytomel /T3 augment cutting/definition cycles; others called aromatase inhibitors (estrogen reducing drugs) like Letrozole . Letro and Anastrozole Arimidex are often included to inhibit the conversion of excess testosterone to negatively cycle impacting estrogen and; incorporating post-cycle therapy (PCT) drugs such as the synthetic estrogens Tamoxifen . Nolvadex , or Clomiphene Citrate . Clomid (which act as anti-estrogens in the male body), can be used alone, together, or in conjunction with those like Mesterolone . Proviron and Human Chorionic Gonadotropin ( HCG ) during PCT to bridge the gap between the end of a steroid cycle (synthetic testosterone usage) and the restoration of the bodys natural testosterone production. These drugs too must be researched, and controlled in similar fashion to AAS. Thus, steroid cycles can be as simple or complex as the users individualized goals, cycle histories and levels of understanding. Below are three samples of AAS stacked cycles of varying complexity along with a beginning PCT sample, and an explanation of goal intention & rationale for the selected compounds, dosages & durations. These illustrations and commentaries will provide a better understanding of what stacking and cycling are along with the many nuances they require.
