Clenbuterol – a drug that was originally created as a cure for asthma. By the way, for this purpose it is used to this day, however, as it sometimes happens, the drug has become much more widespread due to its other property. Clenbuterol in bodybuilding received the greatest application.
The principle of the action of Clenbuterol
In the muscle and adipose tissue of a person there are alpha and beta-adrenergic receptors. Excitation of the first leads to active accumulation of fat, the excitation of the second, on the contrary, leads to the fact that the body much more willingly uses fat as an energy source, in addition, the rate of movement of fat cells to the site of splitting increases significantly. Clenbuterol, being a beta 2-agonist, excites beta-adrenoreceptors, which triggers a chain of biochemical reactions leading ultimately to increased lipolysis.
In addition, Clenbuterol accelerates the metabolism on average by 20-30% of the initial level, which gives an additional bonus on the “drying”. It also increases the activity of lipoprotein lipase, which makes it impossible to accumulate fat in the body.
And finally, the reception of clenbuterol stimulates the secretion of thyroid hormones, which are natural fat burners. As a result, a drug is obtained, which by all its effects in synergism provides a significant acceleration of lipolysis.
Summarizing all of the above, we can say with confidence that tablets of clenbuterol can provide invaluable help on drying, due to a significant acceleration of metabolism, more active use of fat as energy, and increased secretion of thyroid hormones. Together, all these and other effects will provide the fastest possible disposal of fat deposits against the backdrop of a diet with a caloric deficit.
Myths about Clenbuterol
However, around clenbuterol there are many myths. Perhaps the most common of these is the anabolic (anti-catabolic) effect of the drug. This misconception came from experiments on animals (more precisely, over horses), which were given a daily drug in a huge dosage (over 1 mg). I must say that even in this case, anabolic (anti-catabolic effect) was not manifested in every individual and in a very small degree.
Tests of the drug on horses do not in any way demonstrate the effect of the drug on a person. First, the dosage of 1 mg (1000 μg) is simply fatal to humans, so even if clenbuterol in such a dosage has any anabolic effect, the athlete who took this dose of the drug will not appreciate it. Therefore, the reception of clenbuterol in bodybuilding in order to obtain an anabolic effect, is inappropriate.
Ultimately, clenbuterol should be regarded solely as a fat burner (well, as a cure for asthma, of course), you should not ascribe to it any other properties, because even if they exist, they are so weak that you will not notice their influence in any way on myself. The drug excellently shows itself as a fat burner, however, this is by no means a panacea. It manifests its effect solely against the background of a competently built diet and training. The essence of its effectiveness is reduced to accelerating the metabolism and more active use of fat by the body as an energy source. Do not forget about the factor of individuality. Some athletes who have very competently built a diet, regimen and training, clenbuterol, will not help much in the matter of fat burning. Therefore, try, look after the result, most importantly, do not forget about caution.
The fat burner clenbuterol is sold in pharmacies, in the form of tablets or syrup. Syrup contains sugar, so it is preferable to drink clenbuterol in the form of tablets.
Effects of Clenbuterol
- Fat burning and muscle drying
- Increased Strength and Stamina
- Temperature increase
- Decreased appetite
- Mental activation
- Anticatabolic action
- Anabolic effect
Low frequency of side effects (practice shows that irreversible side effects are almost completely absent) and a wide range of positive effects make clenbuterol one of the best fat burners in bodybuilding.
Some authors argue that in large doses clenbuterol may have catabolic effects, but this is not true, due to the lack of any physiological or empirical evidence.
The side effects of Clenbuterol
But what about without a fly in the ointment? Do not worry, the side effects of taking clenbuterol are not so terrible, of course, if not exceed recommended dosages. So, what does the full range of possible side effects from the use of clenbuterol in bodybuilding look like:
- Trembling, convulsions (occur in 20% of cases)
- Sweating (occurs in 10% of cases)
- Insomnia, anxiety (occur in 7% of cases)
- Accelerated heartbeat, increased blood pressure (occur in 6% of cases)
- Diarrhea (occurs in 5% of cases)
- Nausea (occurs in 3% of cases)
As you can see, the risk of side effects is, moreover, a shiver, a quickening of the pulse, convulsions, most likely, necessarily show themselves. However, it is not necessary to be frightened, the side effects of clenbuterol have one feature – they arise at the very beginning of the drug intake and within a week go to “no.” In addition, these minor side effects at the initial stage, we can say, necessarily – all this is a consequence of the acceleration of metabolism.
As can be seen, many of the side effects of clenbuterol can be prevented with ketotifen and bisoprolol (metoprolol). Also, it should be noted that most side effects are especially pronounced only at the initial stages of the course, and after a few days they subsided or completely disappear.
If you take adequate doses (up to 120 mcg / day), start taking the fat burner gradually, and take concomitant medications (about them later), you will be able to get around all the troubles and take out the use of clenbuterol exclusively.
How to Take Clenbuterol for Weight Loss
The course of Clen should not last longer than 6 weeks. When constructing the course of the drug, it should be borne in mind that after 2 weeks of admission, downregulation of receptors occurs, and it will no longer exert its former effect. To prevent this problem on the course, it is mandatory to use “Ketotifen” in a dosage of 1-2 mg. Among other things, ketotifen will allow you to cope with most side effects at the very beginning of the course. Take clenbuterol should be “ladder”, every day raising the dosage by 20 mcg, until the optimal dosage (40-120 mcg) is achieved.
The scheme for the reception of Clenbuterol on the course of drying
- 1 day: 20 μg
- Day 2: 40 μg
- 3 day: 60 μg
- Day 4: 80 μg, 1 mg of ketotifen
- 5 day: 100 μg, 1 mg of ketotifen
- Day 6: 120 μg, 1-2 mg of ketotifen (according to sensations)
You can stop and at 80 mcg, proceed from personal feelings.
Reviews about Clenbuterol
Athletes who took Clenbuterol on the “drying” note a significant acceleration of the fat burning process. In addition, the concentration on training, vivacity, is noticeably increased, which is very useful for a carbohydrate or carbohydrate diet.
Reviews of Clenbuterol and its use for weight loss also talk about the side effects of the drug. Athletes assert that tremor, trembling, convulsions in the first days of reception appear almost always, even if this course is not the first. If the diet is maintained after the course of clenbuterol, the return of the original weight is not observed.
