Methandrostenolone is the most popular anabolic steroid of bodybuilders and athletes today. I tis favored by athletes who are interested in mass and strength above all else. Methandrostenolones anabolic rating is 210 compared to Testosterone’s anabolic rating of 100 (slightly over double the anabolic strength than Testosterone). It possesses an androgenic rating of 40-60, and when compared to Testosterone’s androgenic rating of 100. However, the occurence of androgenic side effects can still be prominent especially in individuals sensitive to androgenic side effects, which can include increased risk for male pattern baldness, oily skin and acne, increased facial and body hair growth.
Dianabol is commonly known for its Estrogenic side effects of water retention, risk of gynecomastia, elevated blood pressure and possible fat gain due to its conversion to Estrogen. Methandrostenolone is methylated at carbon 17-alpha on its structure, which is the reason for increased hepatotoxicity (increased liver toxicity).
Methandrostenolone is normally used during bulking periods where often serve as a kickstarting compound. It is normally cycled with some variant of Testosterone. It is not advised to use Methandrostenolone longer than 4 – 6 weeks due to its negative effects on the liver and cholesterol levels. Beginner dosages range between 0,5ml (25mg) per day. Intermediate and advanced dosages are in the area of 1ml (50mg) per day, and it is generally advised to go no higher than this. That being said, few studies have shown no serious complications in health in dose of 100mg per day for 6 weeks. Dianabol possesses a half-life of 4.5 – 6 hours, thats why the dose should be split thorough the day.
