Whenever I hear someone say that Winnie cut them up or got them shredded, I think it is hilarious. Anabolic steroids do not directly burn body-fat. What they do is alter your metabolism in favor of burning fat, if your diet is correct. Now, there are a few very seasoned juice bags out there that will stay lean no matter what, and are convinced that the drugs, or their own metabolisms are responsible. They are partially correct on both.
If you are heavily muscled and have put on a good deal of lean mass beyond your natural genetic (drug free) potential, then, anabolic steroids have a way of keeping you leaner…all else being equal. The reason is that heavy juiced up lifting constantly stimulates the metabolism. A five foot eight lifter/bodybuilder using anabolic steroids that weigh 220lbs+ and works out five or six days a week with weights has a metabolism like a lion.
When I said that anabolic steroids aid fat-loss indirectly, I meant that they elevate the rate of protein synthesis of muscle (rebuilding) and if you are constantly tearing muscle down by training hard, your body is rebuilding at a accelerated rate under the influence of the anabolic steroids. If you continue to lift hard, eat tons of protein, and cut your calories a reasonable amount (not too drastically), anabolic steroids can greatly protect your muscle tissue while dieting and make the dieting easier.
Anabolic steroids elevate protein synthesis and also speed the rate of protein synthesis in the body. Basic physiology of muscle dictates that you must consume excess calories in order to build new tissue, be it muscle or fat. What we do as juicers by taking anabolics is aid the rate and extent to which our muscles are healed from the training stimulus (the damage). If the calories are cut, but the workout intensity remains, the stimulus for muscle remodeling(growth) is still there, minus the surplus material we need for building bulk(because of cut calories when dieting). The anabolics have no surplus nutrients to build extra tissue with and increase in muscle bulk is not possible. Slight growth or change in physique, yes, massive bulk, no.
So, in the absence of extra calories, the body still tries to repair the muscle tissue (from intense training) to the best of its ability. With the anabolic steroids, it can still do this. This is how your muscles will be protected from wasting when you are consuming a hypocaloric diet (diet below your maintenance level of calories). Body-fat, is, after all a storage form of energy. It can only be burned when you are burning more than you are consuming…bla bla, bla (I have an ebook on fat-loss, I will present it soon). Okay, back to anabolics…
So, this is what we have: first and foremost, a hypocaloric diet. Secondly, high protein. Thirdly, intense resistance training (and for gains sake, do not cut out the basic lifts for the ‘isolation’ bs when dieting-you will lose a ton of muscle no matter how many drugs you take). Fourth, do your cardio, four times a week at least, 30-50minutes max, only once per day. Seven days if you feel you need it-we will talk more about these variables later. Seeing that you are doing all of the above, now, and only now will the right choice on anabolics really make a difference. Here goes.
In one way or another, the drugs most important for dieting will first stimulate a high increase in nitrogen retention (your body’s status of protein building or ‘retaining’ vs ‘wasting’). The most potent anabolics are the best, but secondly you want drugs that… Do not hold water. This is one reason people often assume that winstrol is so great. The fact is, injectable winstrol is a very weak drug. But…it holds zero water. Juicers often switch from heavy androgens to lighter “anabolics” when dieting. Try taking a gram of test a week, then switch over to some winstrol and anavar. All the water will fall off your body. This is common sense yet I still here juice bags talking about it like it is some new secret of chemically getting cut. Do not waste your time on this point.
Drugs that don’t hold water give the illusion of fat-loss because the skin is thinner (less subcutaneous water beneath it hiding muscle definition), and drugs that don’t hold water also do not aromatize and hold estrogen either. Guess what low estrogen and low water look like on a physique that had previously had a good deal of both——-cut!!!
Bad news is, you are not cut. Same fatness, no water, low estrogen. At this point, the body is primed to lose fat but is not actually leaner yet. Actually, water accounts for lean mass calculation in the total sum when computing body-fat. So, actually, at this point you would be fatter if measured in a hydrostatic water tank (the gold standard of body-fat laboratory measurement). Add in your cardio and proper diet for 6-10 weeks and you will be very happy with what you see in the mirror. You may have to fool with some clen, ephedrine, and a little T3, but you’ll get there-ooooops. Didn’t want to talk about all that yet. We’ll get to all that as well.
Alright, so I know you are curious about the best drugs to foster a proper metabolism for quick fat-loss via anabolic steroids. Remember, they prime the metabolism for fat-loss and affect fat-loss indirectly. Specific anabolics don’t burn it themselves. Okay, sorry, I just never stop hearing all that from individuals, and they confuse too many hard working juicers. Remember, you want a high nitrogen retention ability, and little to no water. Here are your best choices based on this criteria:
You need to be careful with EQ and DEC because both may possibly hold a slight bit of water and/or aromatize slightly depending on your genetics. If you have not yet tried either, don’t use them for your first show or an important modeling shoot. Stick with the first four. There are some others but these are the most well known in our community and the most accessible. Tren, primo, anavar, and winstrol do not aromatize at all and hold no water. Of all these drugs, tren is the best for dieting-you will stay strong which will directly affect your ability to hold your hard earned mass. This is because tren is a heavy androgen (though non-aromatizing) as we’ve said before. It will continue to keep your aggression levels high in the gym to be able to do the work that you need to, in order to get shredded. Anavar, primo, and Winnie are good dieting drugs too but are typically harder to find and very expensive. They are also weak drugs. We will discuss options for combining these drugs in future pages as well as dosages and my favorite; how to use testosterone while getting shredded. Please come back soon, I’m trying to find as much time as I can to write.
