Danabol DS 10 is the trade name of methandienone, the most popular oral steroid. Today, this drug takes its place in the preparations of weightlifters, powerlifters and bodybuilders. Its advantages are low price and significant anabolic effect.
- Danabol DS binds to androgen receptor cells. But, unlike selective androgen receptor modulators, it has both androgenic and anabolic effects. This is one of the most androgenic oral steroids, and this is due to the rapid onset of the effect of gaining muscle mass.
- For one cycle of the drug, you can gain up to 10-15 kg of muscles, and significantly add to the power. The authors of the reviews say that the drug helped them to overcome the plateau in the 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.
- “Methane” can cause fluid retention, and contribute to greater muscle fullness. However, not everyone likes this effect, because many block it, taking antiestrogens (Proviron, anastrozole).
- An increase in muscle mass is achieved not only due to “filling with water”, as it is often written in different sources. The drug accelerates protein synthesis. Therefore, for a high-quality set of muscle mass with methane, special nutrition is required. In 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 are difficult to recruit. All the rest will be enough of the first digits. Many eat up to 3-4 g of protein, but there is no reason to overdo it. Danabol DS is not the drug that will force you to absorb such large arrays of protein foods. In any case, it is better not to hurry, and to approach your diet carefully enough, not overdoing with proteins. Liver and kidneys, and so overloaded, it is worth observing moderation.
Side effects and disadvantages of the drug
Due to the high androgenic factor, the drug can produce marked acne on both the face and body. Acne usually disappears after the course, but their symptomatic therapy is recommended with anti-inflammatory ointments, and specialized anti-bacterial agents. The drug significantly affects the arc “pituitary-hypothalamus-testicles”, so the level of testosterone levels decreases after the cycle. If you do not take anti-estrogens, manifestations of gynecomastia are possible, and an increase in body fat mass.
Danabol DS is toxic to the liver, therefore 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 fulfill the training plan for you, and follow a diet to gain weight. If a person has a problem with the regime, everything that he gets on the cycle of danabol DS will be immediately “merged” on the basis of its completion. After the cycle, it is necessary to reduce the training volume (fewer exercises and approaches), but to keep the intensity (working weights) at the same level. It should rest more between workouts, but concentrate on keeping the working weights. This will help not to “drain” the mass immediately.
Dosages and regimens
Often they write that methane must be taken as a “slide”. There is a well-known regimen in which the drug is taken for 5 days, and then, on day 6, a complete rest is given to the body. However, for beginners there is little sense in this. You need to take from 5 to 20 mg per day, while, if the dosage is more than 10 mg, it is necessary to arrange 2 doses. The period of absorption of the drug is 4-5 hours, it is necessary to maintain a relatively stable hormones. The cycle recommends taking holosas to facilitate the flow of bile.
The duration of the first cycle should be about 6 weeks. PCT after Danabol DS is necessary, although many argue to the contrary. An antiestrogen and hepatoprotectors are taken on PCT.
