Clenbuterol is a drug for the treatment of bronchial asthma, which is widely used in fitness and bodybuilding. With the correct regimen, clenbuterol significantly speeds up fat burning. However, it has a number of side effects, for which he was blacklisted as a potent drug.
Its closest counterpart is ephedrine. Unlike ephedrine, clenbuterol is considered less dangerous for the body, but in practice, the side effects of their use are almost the same.
According to the structure, clenbuterol is a beta-2 agonist, a compound that activates receptors in adipose tissue, and thereby accelerates the breakdown of fat. In addition, Clenbuterol increases the synthesis of adrenaline and norepinephrine, which also has a positive effect on weight loss.
Previously, it could be bought at the pharmacy. The recipe for its purchase is conditional, which made clenbuterol one of the most popular fat burners. At the moment, it is extremely difficult to find clenbuterol in pharmacies, even in private ones.
Clenbuterol remained available as a syrup, but its use is unreasonable and ineffective for weight loss, so we will not consider this form of the drug.
How does clenbuterol work? Action on the body.
A person loses weight on clenbuterol due to the complex effect of the drug:
- Body temperature rises, which increases calorie consumption
- A huge surge of adrenaline increases the rate of fat breakdown
- Severe arousal of the nervous system suppresses appetite and increases stamina.
- The process of fat deposition is temporarily blocked.
- Reduced muscle breakdown, because the body extracts energy primarily from fat, not muscle
Receiving clenbuterol in action resembles a strong pre-training complex. You want to move more, you can not sit still. Exercises are easier because of the excited nervous system. In addition, appetite fades away. You eat less, move more, and are more productive, which totally simplifies losing weight.
What does a person feel when taking Clenbuterol?
The effect of the drug begins gradually. Here are the main steps:
- Decreased appetite, which is especially easy to notice in the morning when taking the drug on an empty stomach
- Increased pulse, heart beat becomes more pronounced and distinguishable even when touching the chest area
- Excitation of the nervous system, as if you drank 3 cups of strong coffee
- The desire to move, jump and do something, you get bored sitting, monotonous work becomes unbearable
- Cold sweat, as if you had a strong fright, as if you had forgotten a handbag with documents and money in the subway
- Strong trembling of hands, it is difficult to hold a small object, for example, to write something with a ballpoint pen. Typing on the keyboard of the computer does not deteriorate, which can not be said about using a smartphone. Your touches will be past the keys of the touchscreen phone.
- Slow extinction of all the above effects (within 3-5 hours, depending on the dosage, the duration of Clenbuterol and the fullness of the stomach)
Where to buy Clenbuterol tablets?
Pharmacies have not sold tableted clenbuterol for several years. Bodybuilders and fitness professionals use sites that sell illegal steroids.
Almost all manufacturers of doping, distributing it through their own channels, produce their own clenbuterol. This may be Pharmacom, Balkan, Vermodje, Lyka, Olimp, Alpha-Pharma, etc. There are no differences. The standard dosage of maple for these manufacturers is 40 mcg, for the pharmacy variant of the tablet 20 mcg each.
For a newbie who does not have connections in professional sports, buying clenbuterol tablets is quite problematic. There is no guarantee that you will not become a victim of fraudsters. Non-pharmaceutical versions of clenbuterol may be banal fake.
At best, a non-professional will slip a pacifier, and at worst – secondary chemical raw materials, which will worsen health and disrupt hormones.
How to take clenbuterol for fat loss and weight loss
In professional fitness circles, the intake of clenbuterol tablets is popular, based on a gradual increase in dosage.
If you somehow were able to purchase tableted clenbuterol, you should apply a regimen well-known in fitness circles, based on a gradual increase in dosage.
Clenbuterol is initially a cure for asthma, as a result of which the drug has a pronounced biological activity. The body tries to quickly minimize the negative effects of its reception, and accelerates the adaptation, getting used to the chosen dosage of clenbuterol in literally 2-3 days. After addiction, the drug does not have the same effect, including not helping to lose weight.
• Day One – 20 mcg (half a pill of classic Clenbuterol)
• Day 2 – 20 mcg
• Day 3 – 40 mcg
• Day 4 – 40 mcg
• Day 5 – 60 mcg
• Day 6 – 60 mcg
• Day 7 – 80 mcg, etc. d.
• Day 16 – 160 mcg
The dose increment step is 20 mcg (half a pill), that is, every 2 days it is taken 20 mcg more. Having reached 4 full tablets (160 mkg) bodybuilders finish a course of reception of a clenbuterol.
The duration of the drug is strictly limited – 14-16 days. You can not infinitely increase the dosage, because the more man takes clenbuterol, the stronger the effect of the drug, including the negative.
As a rule, at dosages above 120 mcg per day, the trembling of the hands becomes noticeable even to those around.
ATTENTION: these dosages are suitable for experienced athletes, and those who are already familiar with strength training and interval cardio. Beginners women should stop at a dosage of 120 micrograms (3 tablets). That is, increasing the dose to 3 tablets, they continue to drink 3 tablets per day until the end of the course of administration.
WARNING: be sure to eat at least 1200 kcal per day. If taking Clenbuterol takes place against the backdrop of a starvation diet, then after the drug is discontinued, the body will increase the appetite by 400-500%, with the result that the receiver will pounce on food like a hungry wolf.
The body will feel the fear of starvation. A person will easily eat 1000 kcal and even 1500 kcal at a time. Therefore, on clenbuterol one cannot go on complete hunger strikes in order to lose weight faster.
Drink clenbuterol in the morning, immediately after waking up, on an empty stomach, washing it down with a large glass of water. During the day it is important to drink plenty of pure water without gas.
The combination of clenbuterol with other fat-burning agents and carnitine
On the Internet you can find recommendations about the combination of Clenbuterol with other drugs. Consider each option:
- With sports fat burners, thermogenics or complex – perhaps, but only with frequent workouts 4-5 times a week. In a small dosage and short time. After completing the course clenbuterol need to stop drinking any additives, including fat burners. There is a risk of falling into overtraining.
- With light fat loss – you can use it boldly, especially with supplements without stimulants, be it caffeine, guarana or yohimbine. The best option: carnitine
- With yohimbin – not recommended. Oppression of the nervous system and fatigue against convulsions even during training.
- With ephedrine – does not make sense and is dangerous. The drugs are very similar in structure and effects. Their mixing will not accelerate weight loss, but the risk of side effects will increase significantly.
- Thyroid hormones (t3-t4, thyroxin and other synonyms) – it is not recommended to use thyroxin and its analogues, since interference with the thyroid gland may end in disrepair, especially for women.
Side Effects of Clenbuterol
Overloading of the cardiovascular system, overloading the central nervous system, stress, work to failure, overtraining, the phenomenon of increased hunger 5-6 hours after taking the pills and much more – this is only the tip of the iceberg.
Clenbuterol is a safe medicine, but this is only true when taking it in therapeutic doses according to instructions for treating asthma. In fitness, huge doses are used that do not pass without leaving a trace for the body. If you want to lose weight without harm or health risks, then forget about clenbuterol.
Ketotifen, an antiallergenic drug that, due to its synergistic effect, can reduce the stresses of taking clenbuterol, may temporarily save you from many side effects.
It needs to start taking in the second week of “maple”. At 1 mg at night, before bedtime. Shaking hands and sweating will leave almost immediately. Ketotifen care is only relevant for 7-10 days. The long term of its reception will also cause adaptation.
The most noticeable side effect is muscle cramps. With each increase in dosage, you will suffer from such attacks, both at night and during the day.
Did you decide to raise your arms and stretch up slightly as a warm-up? – cramp. Strongly yawned before the bed? – cramp. Sharply bent in search of fallen keys? – cramp.
Such episodes abound, and for some reason, silent about articles about clenbuterol. Negative effect caused by the features of the drug. The benefit of cramps are not manifested during training, but only at rest.
Experienced bodybuilders, through cramps, determine whether they really use Clenbuterol. Any cramps? – it means the drug is not fake.
Will clenbuterol help you lose weight?
If you lose weight in the current diet and workouts, then you have created a calorie deficit sufficient for weight loss. By adding Clenbuterol to this, you can accelerate weight loss, but in return you will damage your health. Many people think that they will take Clenbuterol only once, and the harm from taking it will be minimal, but such a scheme does not make sense, since it will not give a long-term effect.
Receiving Clenbuterol is justified in preparing for a fitness or bodybuilding competition, when an athlete needs to reduce the percentage of fat, but at the same time keep the muscles for a short period of time – go on stage and show the result.
Immediately before the competition, the athlete uses clenbuterol and goes to the peak of his form, and after 2-3 days returns the same percentage of fat.
For fitness lovers, for those who are building a beautiful body in the long term, clenbuterol will not be a panacea. Its effect is observed only during the reception. Use it for a long time will not work, therefore, the result will be short-lived.
What does day with clenbuterol look like?
In the morning after waking up, the selected dosage is drunk. Suppose this is the 5th day of the course – 1.5 tablets, which are washed down with water. Stimulation helps wake up and eliminate night hunger. Further, according to the plan, an easy run of low intensity (slow running) is from 30 to 50 minutes. Thanks to clenbuterol, even after a workout you will not suffer from hunger.
An example of a diet with 1500 kcal clenbuterol:Breakfast – skip – 0 kcal
Lunch: 604 kcal
– Borsch with meat -1.5 servings (280 kcal)
– Black bread – 3 large slices (270 kcal)
– A glass of fresh orange (75 kcal) or a cup of coffee with sugar and cream (100 kcal)
Dinner: 843 kcal
– Portion of ravioli – 200g (572 kcal)
– Greek salad – 120g (192 kcal)
– Tea with sugar (2-4 teaspoons) (80 kcal)
For many, at first it is difficult to refuse breakfast, but taking clenbuterol simplifies the process of addiction. I note: 2 large meals of 600+ kcal psychologically facilitate the diet. It seems to man that he eats a lot, and at the same time loses weight. Small portions of 300 kcal, even 4-5 times a day – will not give a similar effect, and the person will suffer from eternal hunger.
Should I Take Clenbuterol? – for the beach season or for yourself, definitely not. In this case, the game is not worth the candle. Harm to health is not worth such an amateur goal. If you are performing in a fitness bikini or similar sports disciplines, then clenbuterol intake is the place to be.
You should not look in the direction of clenbuterol in case of unwillingness to follow a diet or in the absence of motivation to train. This is not a magic wand that will lose weight and sit on the couch. This is just an “accelerator” of fat loss, the intake of which is closely related to your own health.
I, as a practicing trainer, consider Clenbuterol use unjustified. Convulsions, tremors, drops of excitement, sweating, hunger drops, and much more – does not paint the drug, and does not make it useful
