Drugs such as Nolvedex bind to the oestrogen receptors , therefore reducing the effects of the heightened oestrogen in the body. Such drugs do nothing to reduce the amount of oestrogen in the body; they merely reduce its effects via competition for the receptors . If the user wishes to reduce the amount of oestrogen they should look to drugs such as proviron and anastrozole , which are known as anti-aromatases - . they lower the conversion of the steroid to oestrogen and therefore reduces the overall amount of oestrogen present.
As a stand alone, I would recommend 30 days of Anadrol, 100 mg per day. Yes, you will retain some water which you will lose afterwards, but if you train well and, most important, do a good aftercycle, you should be able to keep most of the strenght gains AND at between 5 and 10 pounds of muscle mass. As I said, the aftercycle is here more important than the cycle. I recommend starting the intake of clenbuterol immediately after the Anadrol cycle, starting with 40 mcg gradually climbing up to 100 mcg per day after one week. Do this for another 30 days, and then judge for yourself what your lasting gains are. Due to the anabolic effect of clen during the first 2 weeks of intake, you should be able to keep most of your strenght gains while losing a little weight (water and fat). And as you know, strenght leads to muscle mass...
Don't forget to take yohimbine (25 mg a day) simultaneously with the clen, otherwise your beta-receptors will be saturated too quickly.
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.
