What is Clen and how does it work?
Clenbuterol is a sympathomimetic stimulant that’s used to widen the airways in asthma patients.
However, the process by which it works is so effective that it is abused as a fat burner by recreational and professional bodybuilders.
Clenbuterol stimulates the beta2-adrenergic receptors that are present in many sites in the body. The result is a slight increase in your body’s temperature and an increase of up to 10% in your body’s basal metabolic rate.
This results in fat loss. Plain and simple in theory. Not so simple in its working though.
Here are 7 tips for a smoother fat loss cycle with Clenbuterol.
#1 – Be prepared for the sides
One of the problems with recreational users who use Clenbuterol is that they aren’t prepared for the side effects that are guaranteed with the drug.
So, when Clen starts to work and their heart rate spikes or when they start to experience jitters, they get petrified.
Always remember one thing. You are using a drug that belongs to the same family as methamphetamine. It is an incredibly powerful stimulant that will make you jittery as hell.
Some users experience tremors all day at their maximum tolerable dose.
So when you hop on to Clen, be prepared for the side effects. At least, it will make your experience a lot better.
Talking about side effects, here are the most common ones.
- Wired feeling
- Panic attacks
- High BP
- Cardiac hypertrophy
We must say that the last five side effects in this list are extremely rare and usually occur when people abuse Clenbuterol at extremely high doses for prolonged time frames.
So, as long as you use the drug responsibly, you should be able to get away with normal side effects.
#2 – Drop your body fat to under 15 before using it
We would ideally recommend that you drop it to 10%. But even if you can drop it below 15, you’d get much better results with Clenbuterol.
Most people who end up disappointed with the drug start to use it when their body fat percentage is well above 25.
Quite naturally, they don’t even feel the effects of the drug, even at high doses. But they do invite the severe side effects that come at those doses.
To sum it up, only use Clen if you are below 15% body fat. Else, focus on your diet.
#3 – Understand how to use Clenbuterol
There’s a way to use Clenbuterol while maximizing its effects and minimizing sides. That’s to start with an extremely low dose of say 20mcg/day and increasing it every two to three days.
Some people increase their dose once a week only.
It is important to start low to understand how your body reacts to the drug. At the same time, it is a stimulant and your body will quickly adapt to the dose making it important to increase it intermittently.
This prevents your body from adapting too soon and will provide the stimulant effects of the drug for as long as you use it.
#4 – If the side effects are too strong, try the two-week on, two-week off protocol
If you increase the dose every two days, you should be dosing at 120-140mcg/day by the end of week two.
This is the maximum recommended dosage mind you and you will definitely be experiencing the side effects at this dose.
If you find that the side effects are too bothersome, drop it for a couple of weeks before restarting again from a low dose.
A lot of users use this protocol as they find that it makes the drug easier to manage. This is purely based on anecdotal reviews though.
#5 – Use adjuncts to manage the sides
A lot of users who are new to Clenbuterol do not treat it with respect like they would treat any other performance enhancing drug.
Like using proper supplementation or on-cycle support.
One of the commonest side effects that users experience on Clen is muscle cramps, which can be managed with Taurine supplementation.
If you experience headaches, try Tylenol at low doses.
If you are getting Insomnia, use Clenbuterol a few hours before you hit the sack. These are simple ways in which you can manage the commonest side effects.
We also recommend that you add an on-cycle support supplement like N2Guard as it reduces the severity of side effects and minimizes the damage that it can cause to your system.
#6 – Ensure that you buy legit Clenbuterol
When you buy Clenbuterol off the black market, ensure that you are at least getting it from a trusted supplier.
If your Clen is laced with something more potent like DNP, then there’s every possibility that you might kill yourself overdosing on it.
On the other hand, if your Clen is under dosed or is not Clen at all, then you wont even feel the effects at 200mgc/day.
#7 – Do not use Clenbuterol for more than 6-weeks
That’s the maximum recommended time frame for using Clenbuterol, even if you intend to use it continually as opposed to rotating it.
Not only does the dosage become less and less effective as the time progresses, you will also find that the incidence of severe side effects increases the longer you use the drug.
So, we wouldn’t recommend using Clenbuterol for more than 6-weeks at a time.
Also, you will be burning fat for almost five weeks after your last dose. So as long as you are dieting and exercising, you will continue to burn fat.
