We understand a Dbol only cycle is a bad idea on the premise of maintaining any gains; on this basis it's simply not an efficient type of cycle. With that in mind, there's only one question; what is the solution? As your body needs time to adapt, you must allow for this time to occur, but since you cannot supplement with Dianabol indefinitely you need another option. For this reason, your total cycle must extend past Dbol use; in-fact, the initial Dbol use should be conjoined with another anabolic steroid. For example, your cycle will start with Dianabol and an injectable steroid; you will complete six weeks of both and then continue the injectable steroid for another six weeks or so. For this purpose, you will find nothing better than a simple testosterone compound; you will gain the size and strength you desire and with a cycle that carries an extreme high level of toleration for the healthy adult male who supplements responsibly.
Dianabol is not an extremely androgenic steroid, its androgenicity has been structurally reduced, but androgenic side effects are still possible. Such side effects of Dianabol use include acne, accelerated hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness and body hair growth. Most men should not have a problem with such effects, response will be the final dictator, but most will remain clear. Although the odds are in your favor, such effects are brought on by Methandrostenolone being metabolized by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme. This is the same enzyme responsible for the reduction of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone, but the overall conversion here will result in very low amounts of dihydromethandrostenolone. This tells us 5-alpha reductase inhibitors like Finasteride that are often used to combat androgenic side effects will have very little if any affect on Dianabol.
Despite its reduced androgenicity, Dianabol can promote virilization symptoms in women. Such symptoms include body hair growth, a deepening of the vocal chords and clitoral enlargement. It is possible for some women to use this steroid without virilization symptoms with extremely low doses, but the odds are not favorable. Most all women should choose anabolic steroids with less translating androgenic activity to meet their needs.
Bridging is an advanced technique that is really not an off-cycle period at all; it's simply the use of low doses of anabolic steroids in-between full blown cycles. Most commonly, low doses of testosterone are used for this purpose, but there is another option. Such an option can be useful if say a 4-5 week break from cycling is needed, and it will protect a lot of your gains, and even give you a slight natural testosterone boost. For this purpose, you will simply supplement with Nolvadex and Dbol every day at 10mg per day each; the Nolvadex will provide a testosterone boost and Dbol total androgen replacement while you're in-between or on your break.
