The beta-2 agonist Clenbuterol is used for treating asthma, since it’s a bronchodilator, in many countries. It is more commonly used to burn fat and increase energy in a bodybuilding cutting cycle and there are many different ways to run a Clenbuterol cycle, depending on your particular needs.
Clenbuterol is available in 20 mcg tablets, 40 mcg, 50 mcg, 60 mcg, 100 mcg and 200 mcg pills as well as injectable, Ventipulmin (Clen Pump), inhalers, spray pens and liquid syrup forms, and in some areas, it can be obtained as a bulk powder. Doses vary, with the main variable being how those taking the drug deal with the side effects, but most men take 4 to 8 tablets a day, and women tend to take 2 to 4 tablets a day. Some brands may have Clen stacked with other ingredients – such as Ketotifen and Yohimbine – that can be important for measuring doses. When you consider the half-life of Clenbuterol, it makes the most sense for a Clenbuterol cycle to involve two weeks on followed by two weeks off and last for 12 weeks or less. Uses may make use of Yohimbine or Ephedrine during off weeks.
Reasons to Use a Clen Cycle
Post-Cycle Recovery – Clenbuterol is often used to help with Post-Cycle Recovery after a steroid cycle. It lets the user keep consuming the large portions of food needed without the worry of gaining fat. When used in this manner it should be with a diet that is generally on par with that of on-cycle.
- Fat Burning and Weight Loss – Clen is most commonly used to reduce fat, though it can also increase size, strength, vascularity and muscle hardness while maintaining a deficit of calories.
- Steroid Alternative – Clen has properties similar to a mild steroid and is used by bodybuilders who don’t use anabolic steroids to improve lean body mass, muscle hardness, and strength.
- Performance Enhancer and Stimulant – Clen may work as a stimulant, but since it has a reduced half-life, ECA is probably a better option for this usage.
What are the precautions when using Clenbuterol
Clen cycle use must involve the same precautions necessary when using Ephedrine, though many users think that Clen is less harsh than ECA stacking. Clenbuterol stacking must not be done with additional central nervous system stimulants like Yohimbine and Ephedrine since this kind of combination isn’t necessary and may be dangerous. Users can also consume a moderate amount of caffeine to provide an additional energy burst.
Beginner’s Clenbuterol Cycle Schedule – Two Weeks
You should start your Clenbuterol cycle a few weeks after you finish any bulking cycles you are on, or whenever you are ready to start cutting fat. It may be better to wait a few weeks after bulking up and strength training when to take your cycle. For beginners, the typical Clenbuterol cycle length is two weeks, though some may use a one week, three weeks, four weeks or a ten-day cycle instead.
