Clenbuterol – All you need to know

The female anatomy and physiology is very different when compared to males. This difference is evident in the way each of these bodies react to various elements in our day to day life. The way a female body reacts to exercise and how a male body reacts is entirely different. It’s the same with steroids or any other drugs.

Clenbuterol is a body fat reducing drug. It has the unique property of making a person loose body fat by increasing the metabolic rate but also prevents the loss of lean muscle. Clen as it is commonly known among bodybuilders is used during the cutting cycle. This drug was prepared initially to help asthma patients but seeing the wonderful effects it has on fat, it became popular in the bodybuilding and weight lose world. The shelf life of this drug is longer than many other steroids and fat loss supplements. This is not a steroid exactly but is commonly called as one due to its results.

Clenbuterol cycles

Clen is commonly started with a dose of 20mcg tablet a day. It can be increased based on the body’s tolerance level and how the body reacts to it. Even though the body does not show any side effects or adverse reactions, the maximum limit is 120mcg per day. The duration of the cycle varies from person to person but the most common is a two week on and two week off cycle. Women can use T3 and Clen easily.

There is also a burst cycle in which the user takes maximum amount of Clen in a period of two days and then there is break of two days. This cycle continues for a period of time and is then stopped. This cycle works for the user as the body is taken off guard and the metabolic rate isincreased.
