Benefits of Oral Steroids
Oral Steroids have many great benefits to them. They are easily available, easy to use, effective and affordable. Some of them have short half-life which allows the user to take them only once a day.
They are mostly preferred steroids because they allow the user to experience fast muscle growth that is achieved rapidly due to their quick metabolic features. The side effects can be reduced by using them in moderation and following the right steps at the same time.
Oral Steroids vs Injectables
Oral anabolic steroids are considered by many to be better than injectable ones for a number of reasons. They have relatively low liver toxicity compared to their injectable counterparts, they offer the convenience of being taken orally and they provide a more convenient way for athletes to supplement with multiple steroids at once.
Oral steroids also enter the body much faster than their injectable counterparts and they produce a more pronounced effect. This is especially true for those steroids that are C17-aa (androgens with a 17alpha-alkyl group).
This is because these types of steroids undergo substantial first pass metabolism when taken orally as the liver breaks down a significant part of them before they reach the systemic circulation.
This advantage makes it possible to implement shorter dosing schedules with lower doses, which reduces stress on the liver and guarantees protection against estrogenic side effects (such as gynecomastia and excess water retention).
For this reason, C17-aa steroids such as nandrolone (Deca-Durabolin), oxandrolone (Anavar) and stanozolol (Winstrol) are almost always administered parenterally so that their hepatotoxicity is minimally problematic.
Many steroid users are often confused by the many conflicting claims regarding oral vs injectable steroids benefits, especially considering that both methods produce highly desirable results. This is why certain myths have developed about various steroids or steroidal compounds, with some being true and others being false.
Oral Steroids Recommendations
Bodybuilding is a sport that has been built on tradition and protocol. Years ago, you didn’t have the Internet to help guide your training and nutrition decisions.
With limited education on how to train or eat properly, bodybuilders had to rely on what the veterans of the day told them. In truth, few people know better than those who have been in the trenches since the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. Sure, there are many supplement companies vying for your dollar telling you that they have a magic pill or powder to build muscle or burn fat. In many cases they do have some good products but nothing works better than hard work, consistency in training and dieting, and using your brain.
Many people reading this article may be newer to the sport, but there are also many seasoned vets out there who will benefit from the information here as well. The following recommendations were designed to help you make educated decisions when it comes to steroids. You can use them not only for oral steroids but also injectable choices that are based on these principles.
What are the Best Oral Steroids for Bodybuilding?
The following oral steroids deserve consideration by bodybuilders looking to put on quality muscle mass: Dianabol (methandrostenolone) Anavar (oxandrolone) Winstrol (stanozolol) Trenbolone Halotestin (fluoxymesterone) C-22 (chlorodehydromethyltestosterone)
The following oral steroids are worth considering if you want to gain quality muscle mass, but they are not the ideal choices due to side effects or their tendency to make your gains look “soft.” They can be valuable additions to your plan if your testosterone level is low or you are using some other compound that does not convert readily to estrogen. These steroids include: Anadrol (oxymetholone) Dianabol/Dbol (methandrostenolone) Equipoise (boldenone) Masteron (drostanolone propionate) Winstrol (stanozolol)
The following oral steroids can be used by advanced athletes and should not be used by beginners: Durabolin (nandrolone phenylpropionate) Halotestin (fluoxymesterone) Primobolan (methenolone) Deca-Durabolin/Nandrolone Decanoate (nandrolone decanoate).
To help you understand the best way to utilize these compounds for building muscle, here are some general guidelines that can serve as your instinct to guide your decisions. These recommendations are not all black and white, so use this information as “guidelines.” You may need to experiment yourself to fine-tune your plan, but these principles will help you make better choices for your muscle building cycle.
- Keep your total steroid use per week under 80-100mg of testosterone equivalent or less if possible.
- Your total oral dose should be 25–35 mg daily.
- Utilize bulking compounds for 6–12 weeks, cutting compounds are best used only for 4–8 weeks.
- If you are stacking oral steroids, there should be a maximum of 10mg difference per day between each steroid. Therefore, if you use 40mg Dianabol per day , your total daily dose should look more like 30mg Equipoise/Deca-Durabolin per day.
- When stacking two oral steroids, the bulking steroid should be used in most cases for 6-8 weeks and the cutting agent for 4–6 weeks.
- If you are stacking more than two steroids , keep your total amount of steroid use under 100mg testosterone equivalent per week . It is best to utilize injectable compounds and/or testosterone for your stacking patterns.
- For long cycles (16 weeks or longer), it is best to utilize injectable compounds such as Deca-Durabolin , Equipoise , Primobolan Depot , Masteron , Testosterone cypionate , Testosterone enanthate, Trenbolone acetate, and pharma grade HGH.
- For short cycles (8 weeks or less), it is also beneficial to use injectable compounds such as Winstrol Depot and Testosterone propionate .
- Do not increase your doses by more than 20mg per day every 2–3 weeks. It is best to start with a low dose and stay with it for at least 4–6 weeks. * Use post-cycle therapy between cycles to help you get your testosterone levels up if needed or keep your estrogen under control while staying within reasonable limits. Post-cycle therapy will help keep the gains you made during your cycle while helping to minimize any side effects that are adverse due to steroid use.
- If you are a beginner, it is best to keep your cycle length at 4 weeks or less and use only one steroid. * If you do not have any side effects from an oral steroid during your trial run, consider adding another steroid to your plan such as Deca-Durabolin , Primobolan Depot , or Equipoise .
If you have side effects, there is no reason to continue using that steroid. You can reduce the dosage or stop using it all together depending on what side effects occur.
