Steroid stacking is one of the most important things involved in an athlete getting the most out of their performance enhancing plan. If you have an ounce of common sense, then you know not just to grab a bunch of steroids and take them like they were candy. Well, you could do that, but it would be a pretty big mistake. What you can do however is stack steroids. An effective steroid stack will give you the best possible results.
There’s a lot of thought that goes into creating that ideal stack, though. There are many different anabolic steroids out there. With all of this choice comes an almost countless number of stacks. If you want to make a great steroid stack, then you need to understand how the different anabolic hormones can be mixed to get the best results.
You also need to know how to take the steroid properly to get the most out of it. Don’t worry; you’ll understand all of this as you read on.
Understanding the Steroid Stack
There are a few questions you need to ask yourself before you can come up with a great steroid stacking plan. These questions will help you gain an understanding in how to reach your goal. If you don’t know the answer to these questions, then you simply won’t be able to come up with the right plan for you.
Start by asking yourself what goals you want to use your stack to reach. Do you want to bulk up? Or are you cutting? You can only stack for one at a time after all. Or is your goal to just perform better and increase your strength?
Do you have experience supplementing with steroids? If you haven’t, then you need to keep it simple. Different people respond to anabolic steroids in different ways, and you shouldn’t stack until you understand your personal response. It’s also always just a good idea to keep things simple and avoid complicating things. When you first start out, you need to be extra cautious, though.
How healthy would you say you are overall? If you’ve got problems with your kidneys, heart or liver then you shouldn’t take anabolic steroids. The same applies if you’ve got high blood pressure or high cholesterol. There isn’t a steroid stack in the world for that.
Are you a healthy adult male? While women can supplement with anabolic steroids, it’s much riskier for them. There are many steroids on the market that are unsuitable for use by women. If you aren’t even an adult then, regardless of gender, there is no reason at all for you to be on anabolic steroids. Your body simply can’t cope with all the damage that anabolic steroids can do; some of which is irreversible. We will mostly focus on healthy adult males when discussing steroids and steroid stacks.
When you’ve gotten your answers to this question and you know you’re in good health it’s time to get started with creating the steroid stacking plan. Testosterone is almost always the main part of a stack. You don’t need to include high doses of testosterone, but it should be part of every well-designed steroid stack.
Supplementing with anabolic steroids causes a drop in the natural production of testosterone. No matter who you are or what you think about yourself this is true. Testosterone production is suppressed beyond normal levels for every anabolic steroid user. How much testosterone production is suppressed with depend on the steroid and the user, but it will definitely happen you need to supplement with testosterone.
You also need to ensure that you are giving your body enough testosterone. It usually doesn’t matter what form of testosterone you use. The important thing is that your body has enough of it to work properly. Not supplementing with enough testosterone can leave you with low levels of testosterone which is a very unhealthy state to be in.
Testosterone should be the center of every good stacking plan. Not just for health reasons either. It’s also the most powerful anabolic steroids there is. Testosterone is easily the most versatile anabolic steroid there is, and you can get some great results no matter which cycle you take anabolic steroids for or why you take them.
Testosterone is an anabolic steroid that can help you reach any and all goals that you might have. It’s also remarkably well tolerated in healthy adult men as testosterone is a natural substance in the male body. Your tolerance of a performance enhancer is a major factor in whether you should take it or not. A successful stack that leaves behind a sea of negative side effects is not a successful stack.
Now that you know, the foundation of your steroid stacking plan is testosterone you need to decide what to stack it with. There are plenty of options out there. Many people find that stacking testosterone with a potent anabolic steroid works great.
No doubt you already know that anabolic androgenic steroids all come with an anabolic and androgenic nature. Testosterone is equal parts androgenic and anabolic. So in order to stack with it properly, you need to include a steroid that has a strong anabolic nature. You need a steroid that is more anabolic than androgenic.
The only exception this rule is the super powerful Trenbolone hormone. Trenbolone has strong anabolic and androgenic traits but remains the second most powerful and versatile steroid after testosterone.
Which Steroids to Choose
There are a lot of anabolic androgenic steroids that make up the bulk of most steroid stacking plans. Don’t worry though you don’t need to take them all! These are just the common steroids that are stacked and mixed. They’re also some of the most readily available steroids on the market.
Each steroid should serve a primary role. The role can be building muscle or cutting fat or any other primary role. While each steroid will have a primary role, most of them also have a secondary trait that will also serve a purpose. These steroids are the ones most commonly found in steroid stacking plans.
There are also some real miracle workers of the steroid world. These anabolic steroids are so versatile that their primary role is, well, every role. Two steroids have this particular nature; testosterone and trenbolone. Human Growth Hormone, while not a steroidal hormone, also serves this purpose.
The reason that we include the non-steroidal hormone HGH is because a lot of steroid stacking plans also include items that are not actually anabolic steroids. They are included to help enhance the effectiveness of the cycle, such as HGH. Then there are others that are included to protect against steroid-related side effects. This includes things like Arimidex or Letrozole, which protect against estrogen and aromatisation.
Most steroid stacking plans also include fat burners, thyroid hormones, other peptide hormones like IGF-1, Insulin, HCG and many other things. For the sake of this article though we’re only looking at anabolic steroids specifically.
To help you get started, you can find a list of some of the more popular and effective steroid stacking plans and information about how to effectively mix the different anabolic steroids. They are just examples, and you don’t need to follow these ones specifically. They are intended to give you a better understanding.
Before we give you all of that, though, the following is a list of all the most common anabolic steroids. To make it easier to find them, they have been listed by their actual compound name and their trade name where applicable. The primary and secondary trait of each steroid is also included, along with a score based on how it performs as a cutting and bulking agent. Use this information to create the best stack for you.
