Alphabol is the trade name of Methandienone, the most popular oral steroid. Production is engaged in Alpha Pharma. The drug is available in India, where the steroid is legal and allowed in the free market. Today, this drug takes its place in the training of weightlifters, powerlifters and bodybuilders. Its advantages — a small price, and a significant anabolic effect.
How does Alphabol work?
Alphabol bind to androgen receptors in cells. But, unlike selective androgen receptor modulators, it has both androgenic and anabolic effects. This is one of the most androgenic oral steroids, which is due to the rapid onset of the effect of muscle mass.
In one cycle of the drug can gain up to 10-15 kg of muscle, and significantly add to the power. The authors of the reviews say that the drug helped them to overcome the plateau in basic exercises, and allowed them to reach a new level in the results. It is one of the most common steroids in weightlifting and powerlifting.
The increase in muscle mass is achieved not only by “pouring water”, as is often written in different sources. The drug speeds up the protein synthesis. Because for a quality set of muscle mass with Methandienone requires special nutrition. The diet should be 1, 5-2 g of protein per kilogram of mass, and 4-5 g of carbohydrates. Raise their number to 6 g can only ectomorphs, which is difficult to dial. All the rest will be enough first digits. Many people eat up to 3-4 g of protein, but there is no need to overdo it. Alphabol is not the drug that will make you absorb such large amounts of protein foods. In any case, it is better not to rush, and to approach your diet carefully enough, not too much with proteins. The liver and kidneys are already overloaded, it is necessary to observe moderation.
Alphabol and Women
Alphabol is not an optimal choice for a woman, as it has a high androgenic factor, and the risk of masculinization (acne, facial and body hair, clitoral enlargement, coarsening of the voice) from its reception is also high. However, in professional weightlifting and powerlifting this steroid is used. Apply dosage of 5-10 mg daily, and short cycles, no more than 6 weeks. Fans and also wishing to speak in a bikini and body fitness this product is not recommended.
It is often written that Methandienone should be taken “slide”. The scheme of reception in which the preparation is accepted 5 days is widely known, and then, on the 6th day full rest to an organism is given. However, for beginners, this makes little sense. It is necessary to take from 5 to 20 mg per day, while if the dosage is more than 10 mg, it is necessary to arrange 2 admission. The period of assimilation of the drug is 4-5 hours, it is necessary to maintain a relatively stable hormonal background. On cycle recommended to take help to facilitate the flow of bile.
The duration of the first cycle should be about 6 weeks. PCT after Alphabol Is necessary, though many argue the opposite. The PCT accept-estrogens, and medications.
Side Effects of Alphabol
Due to the high androgenic factor, the drug can give severe acne on the face and on the body. Pimples usually pass after a cycle, but their symptomatic therapy with anti-inflammatory ointments, and specialized agents against bacteria is recommended. The drug significantly affects the arc of “pituitary-hypothalamus-testicles”, so the level of testosterone after the cycle falls. If you do not take antiestrogens, there may be manifestations of gynecomastia, and an increase in body fat mass.
Alphabol is toxic to the liver, so its use is not recommended for people with liver diseases, as well as those who have had hepatitis. It is better to choose other drugs. It should be understood that the drug will not be for you to perform a training plan, and follow a diet for weight gain. If a person has problems with the mode, everything he gets on the cycle of Alphabol, will be immediately “merged” at the end of it. After the cycle, it is necessary to reduce the training volume (less exercises and approaches), but leave the intensity (working weights) at the same level. It is necessary to have more rest between trainings, but to concentrate on preservation of working scales. This will help not to “drain” the mass immediately.
It should be understood that to minimize the side effects should be a competent selection of dosages and drugs. It should be tested for sex hormones, liver enzymes, and thyroid hormones to exclude contraindications. After the loop it is also necessary tests and proper Post Cycle Therapy. Usually steroids are not recommended if there is no money for all this, or there is no desire to do it.
