Steroid cycle: mass gain, volume cure or dryness?


Choosing your goal

First and foremost, the question the athlete needs to ask himself is what direction he wishes to give his cure.

This choice will depend on :

  • The bodybuilder's morphology (ectomorph, mesomorph, endomorph)
  • The training cycle (mass gain, dry period...)
  • Diet

Choice of products

Once the decision has been made, it's time to focus on product selection.

These are divided into three categories:

Stéroïdes anabolisants

Mass cures are likely to be of particular interest to ectomorphs, for whom muscle and fat are difficult to gain.

Choosing a volume cure will be aimed at bodybuilders in the post-mass period, or who already have a muscular base. It should also be noted that the difference between mass and volume will be a less imposing, more defined musculature. It is not a priority choice for beginners.

Finally, dry cures are reserved for athletes wishing to shape the musculature and make the muscle more prominent. The aim is to lose adipose mass, which prevents the muscular definition and ridged appearance that many of us are looking for.

It should be pointed out that a cure generally consists of two products. This is to benefit from a synergistic effect between the two molecules.

In this way, it is possible to give the cure a specific direction, for example :

- mass / volume

- volume / dry

Stacks of products can be stacked. For example, DANABOL and ORAL T BOL together form a mass/volume cure

Determining cure time

Depending on its nature, a cure can be spread over a number of weeks.

A mass cure should be carried out over 8-10 weeks. The longer the user's adipose mass (fat), the more difficult it will be to dry out.

Volume cure is more variable. Cycles of between 8 and 12 weeks are the most common.

Since volume is harder to achieve than mass, it makes sense to go for a 10-week period.

Dry and fat-burning cycles are the longest. Between 10 and 12 weeks. The diet should be adapted, with meals divided up to prevent the body from storing calories. Care must be taken to limit carbohydrate and fat intake. Particularly saturated fats.
