Another positive effect of deca-durabolin was reported by many bodybuilders who prior using this drug experienced pains in joints but once using it they started to enjoy training with no pain and that is attributed to deca’s ability to store more water in connective tissues.
However there are some moments which must be known by you before you start using nandrolone decanoate , it has a very strong effect on decreasing your sexual drive and it can cause gyno in some individuals. So have Nolvadex (tamoxifen citrate) on hand in case you feel gyno symptoms.
As we discussed above, Dianabol carries a strong aromatizing nature, and is a C17-aa anabolic steroid; as such, its side-effects will revolve around these factors. As an aromatizing steroid, this means there can be a testosterone to estrogen conversion, and if estrogen levels go to high it can lead to some complications. When estrogen levels increase, the hormone can attach to the receptors and cause gynecomastia (male-breast enlargement) and it can also promote excess water retention and high blood pressure; Dbol is notorious for promoting high blood pressure. Needless to say, if you already suffer from high blood pressure you should not touch this steroid, but if it's healthy you'll need to ensure it stays this way. For this reason, in-order to combat and avoid these estrogenic side-effects of Dbol, the use of an Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) is often advised. It shouldn't be too hard to see how this can help; after all, an AI inhibits aromatase, but it goes a step further by reducing the body's total estrogen levels. Of course, and this cannot be overstressed, you must keep your doses at a responsible level; most will need at least 20mg per day for any anabolic promotion, with a maximum dosing of 50mg per day. It should be noted; if you've never used this steroid before, you should not start with a high end dose; start low and see how you respond.
For most, a Dbol cycle will only represent a small portion of a larger total cycle. For example, the most common point of use is to kick off a new off-season phase of growth. In this case, you would supplement with Dianabol for approximately six weeks along with your chosen steroids mentioned from the base section above. Once this six week period is over, your total cycle would continue without Dbol, but the base items would continue. This is the most common and popular Dbol cycle of all, but it's not the only one that's beneficial. Often forgotten, Dianabol is one of the best mid-cycle steroids we have; we're talking about mid-cycle use that aids us in breaking through a plateau; specifically, plateau busting. When you reach a sticking point, and you will, you'll need to provide some type of change to your diet, training or supplementation plan, maybe all three, and Dbol can be the change you need. It should be noted; if you used this steroid as a kick starter, you will need at minimum six weeks before you implement it again, and this means plateau busting is normally only going to be undertaken by hardcore advanced steroid users who are running extremely long and extensive cycles.
