Development of the drug Clen-40 (Clenbuterol) was conducted solely with the aim of obtaining a medicine against asthma. This drug was successfully tested, began to be used for its intended purpose, but soon enough showed properties and qualities, thanks to which it became much more widespread. Along with asthma therapy, Clenbuterol is often taken by bodybuilders.
The effects of Clenbuterol are very attractive for any athlete who wants to defeat the hated fat and soon show his muscles around him. If you check all of them, we get the following list:
- Fat burning and muscle drying (for the sake of what everyone usually starts receiving);
- decreased appetite (pleasant side effect);
- temperature rise;
- anti-catabolic action;
- mental activation;
- anabolic effect (weakly expressed).
This set of effects allows you to call clenbuterol one of the best fat burners, which have a multifaceted effect on the body.
Possible side effects of taking Clenbuterol
As with any medication, the use of Clenbuterol can have some negative manifestations. They are not so significant if the athlete strictly observes the daily rate.
Side effects from taking the drug for the bodybuilder are in the following manifestations:
- nausea that occurs in 3% of athletes;
- indigestion observed in 5%;
- increase in blood pressure and heart rate, manifested in 6% of cases;
- causeless anxiety and insomnia, which is observed in 7% of athletes;
- increased sweating, manifested in 10%, and shivering with convulsions, observed in 20% of cases.
The cycle of taking Clenbuterol tablets should be no more than 1.5 months (6 weeks). After 14 days, receptor downregulation occurs. This means that the effectiveness of the drug is significantly reduced. This can be avoided by the concomitant use of ketotifen. Its daily dosage ranges from 1 to 2 micrograms. This drug not only prevents the decrease in the effectiveness of Clenbuterol, but also makes it easy to postpone the first days of the cycle when side effects appear.
Clenbuterol begins to be taken with small doses, increasing the daily rate by 20 micrograms, reaching the optimum. The increase in dosage is carried out in the first six days of the cycle:
- 20 mcg on the first day;
- 40 mcg on the second day;
- 60 mcg on the third day;
- 80 mcg on the fourth day;
- 100 mcg on the fifth day;
- 120 mcg on the sixth day.
Reach maximum dosage is optional. You can stay at 80 micrograms. Need to focus on your personal feelings.
