Sports of great achievements does not exist without doping. But in the present times even performances among amateurs in regional and national championships are not without pharmacological support. Bad or good – let’s leave people for discussion far from sports. It is simply important to determine the purpose, the means and follow the rules. The purpose of this article will be a narrative about the legendary anabolic steroid-methandienone.
What is methandienone?
Methandienone is a pharmacological drug belonging to the class of androgens and anabolic steroids. In other words – AAS. The main effect of any steroid in the body is to simulate the manifestation of the male sex hormone testosterone. In consequence of which the anabolic processes are activated, the mass grows, the physical parameters are increased. In this way, the methandienne, which is firmly entrenched in the favorites among the representatives of the iron sport, also works.
Each of us, for sure, at least once in my life heard about methandienone, which in the people is called simply methane. Legendary it is called, due to the rapid inclusion in the work, high efficiency and unuttered relevance after more than 50 years, since the discovery of the drug. Presented to the world of methandienone (then still called dianabol) American John Ziegler. 1956 was the starting point for the rapid development of sports results, because a long period of the drug did not fall into the section of banned doping.
And athletes benefited from all the positive effects, developing the potential and striving to conquer new heights, winning medals, high places in the world arena. Methane enjoyed particularly great success among weightlifters of the USSR. What to say – the basis of pharmacology for leading athletes of the time.
With mild irony, it can be noted that the USSR has not existed for a long time, and anabolic steroid is extremely relevant and will remain in demand among athletes for a long time.
Ambiguous moment. Methane significantly increases strength and mass. But athletes, for whom stamina and fine techniques of movements are important, should pay careful attention to this steroid, as indeed there is a consummation of muscles and some deterioration of oxygen transport to the muscles. In other words, for long distance runners or boxers, there are other drugs that will do more good.
Effects of methandienone
- Increase in muscle mass. One of the most obvious and tangible effects of the anabolic methandienone steroid on the athlete’s body. Weight gain, as a rule, is of interest to bodybuilders in the corresponding period of recruitment. But methane shows itself most effectively when combined with other drugs, when the goal is to create a powerful anabolic combination.
- Increase in physical indicators. Methane is a favorite steroid among weightlifters and powerlifters. This is due to a pronounced increase in strength in a fairly short period. The use of methandienone helps athletes develop power capacity and ensure progress, which directly affects achievements.
- Stimulation of protein synthesis. The cell begins to produce more protein when methandienone and globulin begin to act on specific receptors.
- Elimination of pain from old injuries. There is a fluid retention in the articular bags, due to what pains in the joints are eliminated.
- Recovery of glycogen. Glycogen is the main source of energy that accumulates in the liver and muscles. In the period of intense and difficult training, the body quickly exhausts the reserves of glycogen. Methandienone, in turn, provides the shortest recovery of glycogen, which leads to progress and productivity.
- Increased appetite. Methandienone activates anabolic processes. Naturally, the body begins to ask for building material in the form of food, or rather it is interested in nutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, fats) – it does not matter in what form.
- Reduction of the stress hormone cortisol. Anabolic steroid already a priori suppresses cortisol and works like an anti-catabolic. In the case of methandienone use, protection from the destruction of muscle structures during periods of severe, stressful situations, such as training, is noted.
- Anticatabolic action. Preservation of muscle mass in moments of tension.
- Light fat burning effect. The effect of methane on the burning of subcutaneous fat has been documented. This effect is the result of the development of an additional amount of dopamine. However, methandienone is rarely used for weight loss, as some water retention does not allow to monitor the fat reduction process.
- Strengthening of the bone apparatus. Due to this effect, methandienone is successfully used in medicine.
The result from the use of methandienone is felt almost immediately, during the first week. Increasing physical strength and weight, improving health and vitality, there is a drive for training, pumping and, miraculously, a pleasant muscle fullness. Anabolic steroid methandienone not only positively affects the training process, but also gives self-confidence, which significantly improves the quality of life.
How to take methandienone?
Anabolic steroid in the form of tablets is extremely convenient in use. Methane is easily dosed and optimized for any mass-gathering course. There is a proven practice of using with proven effectiveness. You should divide the daily dosage of methane by 5-6 equal parts and drink evenly throughout the day.
Dosages of methandienone
The minimum effective dosage starts with 10 mg (very light effect) and reaches 30 mg. Dosage of 25-30 mg is effective and does not lead to side effects. With good tolerability, it is possible to raise up to 50 mg and even higher, provided that methandienone is the only drug on the course. At the same time, many performing and professional athletes exceed the dosage of 100 mg, pursuing their intended goals. This should not apply to amateur athletes and those who do without the supervision of specialists.
With what to bind methandienone?
For bodybuilders, methandienone is an effective steroid for weight gain, taking into account its combination with other drugs. This is due to the fact that most of the recruited mass from methane falls on the liquid. The combination with other steroids makes it possible to minimize undesirable effects as a set of non-functional weight and to increase the efficiency of the mass-selective cycle.
In view of the fact that methandienone poorly stabilizes the androgen receptor, it is worth combining with the following steroids: testosterone enanthate, propionate, trenbolone (simulator), nandrolone, primobol, primoverom, oxandrolone. It looks good anabolic pair – methandienone and boldenone (boldever).
Methandienone is included in the courses for weight gain and is combined with appropriate medications. The most powerful combinations are:
- Methandienone, Test C and Deca Durabolin.
- Methandienone, Sustanon and Retabolil.
An easy-to-understand mix of methandienone and testosterone enanthate brings tangible results in a set of mass and strength. Indeed, these are favorite drugs for siloviki and bodybuilders.
You can try to make a course of oral steroids, without bothering with injections, without losing efficiency. You can experiment and combine methandienone together with oxaver and stanozolol (stavrom).
Methandienone has the property of converting to estradiol, which can lead to such undesirable effects as the accumulation of excess fluid in the body, the risk of gynecomastia. Avoid these data, you can. It is enough to adhere to the following recommendations.
- Do not exceed recommended dosages (25-30 mg per day, with good tolerability of 50 mg).
- Do the rest between courses, that is, periodically refuse to use AAS.
- Take anti-estrogens (the same tamoxifen) and conduct PCT.
Methandienone and its effect on the liver. Oral steroids can really affect the function of the liver somewhat. But do not harm the body, but increase its activity. The harm of methane for the liver is much exaggerated. After the course, the liver is able to recover itself and at adequate dosages no negative phenomena will be seen.
