Clenbuterol has a significant fat-burning effect. It burns fat without dieting with a slight rise in body temperature which causes the body to use fat as fuel for such heating.
Among professionals clenbuterol is very popular during the preparation period for competitions. Especially intense fat burning occurs when it is combined with the preparation of the thyroid hormone T3. When taking AAS at the same time clenbuterol increases the effect of these steroids due to the increase in body temperature caused by it since it accelerates protein metabolism in the body.
The dosage depends on the body weight. Athletes usually take 2-3 tablets of 40 mcg, i.e. 80-120 mcg per day. Women most often use a dose of 80 mcg per day. Start taking clenbuterol with 20 mcg per day and over the steroid cycle of a week gradually (adding half a tablet per day) raise the dose to 120 mcg. There is also a scheme for taking the drug, in which, to avoid addiction, clenbuterol is taken two days in a row, followed by a two-day pause. The duration of taking the drug in any case is about 6 weeks. At the end of the steroid cycle the amount of the drug used is reduced to 40 mcg and at the end of the reception take a 14-day break.
Clenbuterol acts on the nervous system in such a way that the body begins to actively secrete norepinephrine and adrenaline. Their powerful fat-burning effect is appreciated by athletes. Moreover the drug is able to enhance the level of metabolism in the body by 20% and sometimes even 30%.
Clenbuterol has an effect on the thyroid gland, accelerating the secretion of hormones, which, in turn, are natural fat burners in the body. Also, the drug does not allow lipoprotein lipase to act actively, and as a result, the accumulation of fat deposits becomes impossible.
Since clenbuterol is not a hormonal drug and does not have the typical side effects of anabolic steroids women are willing to use it. Possible side effects of Clenbuterol are a feeling of anxiety, palpitations, slight trembling of the fingers, headaches, increased sweating, drowsiness, sometimes muscle spasms, high blood pressure and nausea. It is interesting that all these phenomena are temporary and most often disappear by themselves after 8-10 days, despite continuing to take the drug.
Clenbuterol protects the muscles from destruction, which is very important for cutting.
Clenbuterol makes breathing easier and has fewer side effects on the cardiovascular system, compared to ephedrine.
Clenbuterol is very popular in bodybuilding. Here are just some of the effects it has on the athlete’s body:
Getting rid of excess fat
The increase in body temperature
Mobilization of emotional resources of the body
The main feature of clenbuterol for bodybuilders is that the drug combines the ability to burn fat and promote muscle building. Naturally the increase will not be as significant as when taking some other medications and will remain within reason.
Clenbuterol can be compared in action to steroids. Like the combination of injectable Winstrol and Oxandrolone, it promotes high-quality muscle growth, which is supplemented by some strength gain. First of all, clenbuterol has a strong anti-catabolic effect, i.e. it reduces the percentage of protein destroyed in muscle cells and promotes hypertrophy of muscle cells. Therefore, many athletes use clenbuterol at the end of the steroid cycle to slow down the emerging catabolic phase and maintain their strength and muscle mass.
