Letros 2.5 or Letrozole is one of the most effective non-steroid preparations of aromatase inhibitors. Popular in 65 countries. This drug has blocking properties for aromatase enzymes. Very difficult to understand, right? Let’s see how letrozole is used in bodybuilding.
Letrozole found use among bodybuilders and other athletes. In sports, the drug is used as an additional element on a cycle of steroids to reduce estrogen levels and a small increase in testosterone. Letrozole is considered one of the best drugs in its sphere of influence, therefore, is well known among bodybuilders.
Studies have shown that the drug can reduce the concentration of estrogen to 97%, which proves its high efficiency. But if you take the recommended dose, the concentration decreases only to 76-79%, which is also not bad. Low levels of estrogen affect the reduction of side effects on the cycle, which is very important for athletes. It was also noted that the use of letrozole in bodybuilding increases the production of certain hormones (luteinizing, follicle-stimulating hormones, globulin), and they, in turn, increase the production of testosterone.
Effects of letrozole
- Prevention of estrogen-related negative side effects (flooding, acne, body fat, gynecomastia).
- Elimination of gynecomastia at the initial stages of the cycle.
- It allows you to save muscle tissue after a cycle of catabolic processes (in the world of bodybuilding, the concept of “catabolic”
- breakdown after taking steroid drugs is very well known).
Reception of letrozole will be very expedient if anabolic steroids and androgens are listed in the cycle of the drugs taken.
Possible side effects
The drug may cause:
- soreness in the joints;
- increase in body temperature;
- strong feeling of weakness;
- bouts of dizziness;
- high pressure.
Such negative phenomena occur only when the athlete exceeds the recommended dosage of the drug. If you follow the instructions, there will be no side effects.
How to take letrozole
Bodybuilders are recommended to take about 1-3 milligrams per day absolutely at any time. Daily use of even 100 micrograms significantly slows down the effect of the aromatase enzyme. Do not exceed the recommended dosage. Otherwise, there is a sharp increase in the chance of developing negative consequences, in particular, a decrease in sexual desire.
The daily dose for each bodybuilder is always selected individually. It all depends on the experience, the age of the athlete, the duration of the use of a nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitor, but should not exceed the optimal 1-3 milligrams. Calculate the exact amount of the drug will help a specialist. It is recommended to consult a doctor before using any pharmaceuticals. Long-term use of the drug allows you to slightly adjust the intake of this substance and use the tool not every day, but every other day.
Letrozole on PCT (post cycle therapy)
The cycle of Letrozole offers the use of the drug in variable dosages. They can change quite a bit. On post-cycle therapy, the rate remains unchanged. For a week or 10 days, it is recommended to take standard 2.5 milligrams per day, and then reduce the dosage to 0.5 milligrams in the next two or three weeks.
