When paired with the right diet and exercise program, overweight individuals can shed as much as 15 pounds during their first two-week alternating Clenbuterol cycles. However, it is worth mentioning that Clen is not a “miracle drug” and it will only work if the user gives a solid effort to change his or her lifestyle. It can be viewed not as a weight loss drug, but as a weight loss amplifier. Everything you do – including changes you make to your diet and the exercise you put in every day – will produce better, more noticeable results.
When it comes to implementing a short-burst cycle, there’s one huge question: will it work? For many athletes, they certainly do – especially when paired with diet and exercise meant to help facilitate their goals. Think about it like this: bodybuilding beginners can typically add mass and burn fat without issue as long as they work hard, and it takes quite some time – up to a year, for some – before they hit their first plateau. At this point, they are no longer beginners, and they may need to start mixing things up if they want to see results. The body is smart, and it gets used to whatever you’re doing to pack on the mass. The idea is to keep your body guessing if you want to keep it growing.
Transdermal patches (adhesive patches placed on the skin) may also be used to deliver a steady dose through the skin and into the bloodstream. Testosterone-containing creams and gels that are applied daily to the skin are also available, but absorption is inefficient (roughly 10%, varying between individuals) and these treatments tend to be more expensive. Individuals who are especially physically active and/or bathe often may not be good candidates, since the medication can be washed off and may take up to six hours to be fully absorbed. There is also the risk that an intimate partner or child may come in contact with the application site and inadvertently dose himself or herself; children and women are highly sensitive to testosterone and can suffer unintended masculinization and health effects, even from small doses. Injection is the most common method used by individuals administering AAS for non-medical purposes.
