Solo drugs for the mass gain
Here will be discussed the cycles with anabolic steroids for the mass gain. Let’s begin from the drugs which are used individually. The bulking cycle with the one anabolic drug.
Bulking cycle. Methane
Of course, the first and the most popular steroid is Methane (Methandienone, Methandrostenolone). The first that needs to be said is the drug is oral and it has the impact on the liver. But this impact is not so significant. The dosage of 1-2 tablets per day does not give the significant impact on the liver. But all the drugs relate to the 17α-alkylated AAS and because of this, they are toxic to the liver unlike the most of the drugs which are administered intramuscularly.
There are a lot of rumors, opinions, and stereotypes about this medication. People think that Methane is very powerful and harmful steroid that need to be used the last. In fact, the Methane is not so bad drug.
The main side effects are the same as have all testosterone drugs. It decreases the production of the own testosterone. Another side effect is the water retention in the body and then the blood pressure increases. This effect is common for the all bulking steroid drugs. You don’t have to worry about it.
In any case, during the mass gain, the blood pressure will be not stable. If your cycle is drawn up with the Methane, then one more side effect is acne. It is common for all testosterone esters but not only for the given drug. And it is unknown if everyone faces with this effect. Someone will not have this problem but another will have such unpleasant effect.
Daily norm should be not higher than 20-40 mg. There are different types of the admission. The first type of usage is a pyramid; it is an old scheme. 1 tablet during the first week, the second week is 2 tabs, then 3-4 tablets and in the same way your dosage should be decreased.
Nowadays is very developed the simple scheme of the steroid use. That means you take a certain dosage 2-4 tablets and use it during the whole bulking cycle. The cycle lasts 4-6 weeks. One of the minuses is that the increase of muscle mass happens because of the water retention in the body. The water leaves after the end of the cycle and as result, the increased mass will be not so impressive.
Now, will discuss the testosterone esters. We have chosen 3 of them. Testosterone Propionate, Testosterone Enanthate, and Sustanon.
Testosterone Enanthate is one of the longest esters of testosterone and the injections should be taken once a week or maximum twice. If your cycle is drawn up with the Enanthate and it is for the mass gain and your first cycle, you can begin with the dosage 250 mg. If you have no increase in weight and strength, then you should add one more ampoule. It will be 500 mg weekly and athlete can always progress with the given dosage.
Like was said before, Enanthate begins to work for a long period of time and has the long action in the body. Sustanon begins to work very quickly because it has some testosterone esters and works in the same way like long esters.
Propionate is something average between short and long ester. It works in the body about 1 week. The injections of Sustanon and Enanthate can be done once a week. In the other way, the injection of Propionate should be done minimum twice a week because its period of half-life is 3-4 days.
The last drug which is used in solo is Nandrolone Decanoate. This steroid drug is very specific and very popular among the experienced athletes. Firstly, it gives a significant strength and therefore the muscle mass.
One side effect which has Nandrolone is the bad erection. But such effect has the athletes who like the experiments with the big dosages. If you use 200-300 mg you will feel nothing. It will be good to not use this anabolic steroid if your basic goal is to gain the maximal weight.
Do not use the given drug if you are preparing for the competitions because the duration of the half-life period of this anabolic steroid is about 2 years. Better will be to include one more drug and to combine with Nandrolone Decanoate.
One more minus of Nandrolone for men who are over 35 years of age. It has the negative impact on the erection when the level of the own testosterone decreases. And a lot of athletes after such age try to not use this drug and to find the replacement for it.
Advice and recommendation
It is not recommended to use the high dosages. The admission more than 600 mg can provoke gynecomastia. This happens because the given drug has the progestin activity.
Let’s make the conclusion of the use of solo drugs for the muscle gain. If it is your first cycle, then the best drug will be Methane. Of course, you should remember that this drug gives a lot of water.
When you choose the testosterone esters, give the priority to long-life esters, for example, Enanthate. It will stay longer in the organism and will give more effect. The cycle for mass is better to not begin with the use of the Nandrolone like the solo drug.
