So, you have an interest in using anabolic steroids. Maybe you are brand new to the game, maybe you’ve done a cycle, maybe you’re very experienced, or maybe you’ve only used one method or type of steroid in the past. Whatever your reasons, here is the lowdown on the most common steroids in the oral and injectable categories.
Dianabol (commonly known as Dbol) was the first ever oral androgenic anabolic steroid (AAS). Other names you can find it under are, Methandienone, or methandrostenolone, or sometimes simply “methan”. Dbol has been a crazy popular steroid in the bodybuilding world for the past 40 years. Dbol is mostly used in bulking cycles, as it helps users gain significant muscle size and strength. 

On this blog I posted some articles about Dianabol en methyl-testosterone and other early oral anabolic androgenic steroids. In those days Arnold dubbed Dianabol the “breakfast of the champions” and that was true. Bodybuilders in those days educated each other and measured their dosing by handful not by milligrams.

They kept their usage a secret to the people outside their friends, even though it was not forbidden to use them in those days.

Let’s take a look at the most famous of the early bodybuilders, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Unauthorized publications mention how Arnold took a handful of Dianabol before his work-out, leading to a lot of intensity in the gym. He stacked it with Primobolan at around 600 milligrams a week. We also know that Arnold also liked Winstrol a lot and we know that Winstrol leads to a massive increase in strength, that why it is also favored by power-lifters and strongmen.

Scare mongering

If someone on a forum mentions the fact that he plans to use oral steroids, most members will post warnings and tell him that orals are very bad for the liver. It’s almost as if oral steroids are spiked with a sharp object that will hurt your liver. But is that true or is it just bro-science? Once bodybuilders and athletes found out that many pharmaceutical compounds where beneficial for their purposes, the authorities, medical community and pharmaceutical companies started to discourage usage and even official scientist denied that supra physiological doses of testosterone would cause extra muscle mass. Remember Will Brinks article  “walking the walk or talking the talk”? Still makes me laugh today!! It didn’t help. Bodybuilders and athletes are using anabolic steroids to increase the muscle mass and athletic performance. But why does everybody still believe the myth that you will ruin your liver with oral steroids and that its alkylation will destroy your liver forever?

Since many members are interested in analysis of anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) we post the analytical data of dehydrochlormethyltestosterone ((17β)-4-chloro-17-hydroxy-17-methylandrosta-1,4-dien-3-one) on the most discussion-boards known as Oral Turinabol – Oral T or abbrivated as OT.

You’ll find in this blog-post also the graphics from the different analytical methods of identification (GC, GC/MS, FTIR, HPLC, 1H- and 13C- NMR).

An analysis of a few bottles, each labelled  “Turanabol,” “Chlordehydromethyltestosterone,” and “Golden Triangle Pharmaceuticals” (see Photo 1). Despite identical appearances (same bottle type, labeling, lot number, and number of tablets (100)), some of the bottles contained nondescript orange capsules while other bottles contained nondescript yellow capsules (see Photo 2). Subsequent analyses confirmed that the orange capsules contained dehydrochlormethyltestosterone as the only active ingredient, while the yellow capsules contained primarily dehydrochlormethyltestosterone with minor amounts of stanozolol and methandrostenolone (see structures, below).

Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone is a Schedule III controlled substance in the United States and is also listed in the 2006 Prohibited List/World Anti-Doping Code. It gained notoriety as a result of the East German Olympic doping scandals that were fully exposed after the fall of the Berlin wall (2 ). Data from East German medical personnel involved in the doping indicated that dehydrochlormethyltestosterone produced dramatic increases in speed and strength, but with detrimental side effects such as deepening of the voice, increased acne, and body hair growth. Other, long term side-effects ranged from liver damage to severe gynaecological disorders (2). This steroid is no longer legitimately produced, and appears to be available only as an illicitly-prepared product on the black market.

Almost every supplement or pro-hormone that really worked was banned, what we see now, more and more, is that FDA finds spiked supplements.

The  war on drugs is about to include supplements and is just going to bring down more FDA control of supplements, Matt Cahill a designer supplements manufacturer sold DMAA – SuperDrol and DNP. Now it seems Craze was spiked also.

Bodybuilders use PWO’s (pre work outs), mostly things like cialis to get a better pump. From the day I started to work with weights, I know that a few cups of strong black coffee would help during my work-out, many even use a lotta sugar in it but I don’t like sugar at all.

 If you google on spiked supplements you realize it is a known problem, not only in bodybuilding supplements and pwo’s but also in dietary supplements  -vitamins- sexual-enhancement supplements and especially in weight loss supplements. Part of the appeal of supplements is their apparent naturalness, so they often have a veneer of being safer than prescription drugs.
