Are you planning on getting big and jacked?
Perhaps you’re looking to get shredded and super-ripped instead?
Whatever your goals and objectives may be, there’s a strong chance that you’ve seriously considered crossing over to the ‘dark side’ and running a course of steroids.
PEDs, or performance-enhancing drugs, are a staple ingredient in many a bodybuilder’s contest prep.
In fact, as a well-known and now-disgraced cyclist will tell you, PEDs are commonly used in a number of other sports as well.
For today’s article, however, we’re going to be focussing on running a Superdrol cycle.
Superdrol may sound like a supplement used by a superhero, but in actual fact, it is a very popular AAS (Androgenic Anabolic Steroid).
In the world of steroids, Superdrol is considered by many to be a designer steroid.
It offers countless benefits, though it is not without its risks.
But what does a typical cycle look like, how is it used, what does it do, what are the side effects, and is PCT required.

Androgenic anabolic steroids are very dangerous.
They have claimed many lives and have caused irreversible side effects in far too many people for us to even begin to imagine.
While they do have their benefits, the risks generally do outweigh the pros.
That’s why, with a good conscience, we could never condone the use of anabolic steroids, nor would we recommend it.
You may think that is slightly hypocritical as we’re about to talk about how to run a steroid cycle but there’s a reason for that.
People will always use steroids despite knowing the risks, and we’d rather they do so safely.
That’s why we’re compiling this cycling guide today.
No, it’s not Superman’s secrete to his ripped and chiseled abs, it’s something even better than that.
Superdrol is a designer steroid that is reportedly very popular amongst the wealthy, and possibly the famous too.
It is known as a prohormone but in reality, that’s wrong.
It’s not a prohormone or SARMs at all, it is, in fact, asteroid.
It’s scientifically known as Methyldrostanolone and methasteron and it is arguably the most effective and potent oral anabolic steroid to be utilized over the last decade, or perhaps longer still.
If you’ve heard of Masteron, it is basically this steroid, though it is lacking an ester chain.
The name, by the way, came about as a result of combining the words ‘super’ and ‘Anadrol’ so you can imagine what this steroid is based upon.
It's an awesome steroid for bulking, though some bodybuilders also use it as part of their cut as it yields very dry and hard gains with no bloating or water retention.
It was created back in the 50s by doctors who were looking to create a drug to destroy tumors.
Sadly, this wasn’t achievable, but they did find that the oral steroid promoted huge increases in lean muscle mass and strength.
Superdrol however, was not officially released until 2005, so it’s very much one of the new kids on the block.
Now we’re going to list some of the main benefits associated with it.
Remember, always do your research before using any form of anabolic steroid, and never abuse them.
A few key benefits of using Superdrol include:
When you hear ‘steroids’ you instantly think of increased muscle mass and Superdrol does not disappoint.
Those that happen to be utilizing Superdrol will see very impressive increases in their lean muscle mass.
This is because Superdrol has been found to promote a positive Nitrogen balance within the cells in our muscles.
The more Nitrogen our muscles hold, the greater the rates of protein synthesis.
This means that Superdrol promotes increased rates of protein synthesis.
This, in turn, encourages the recovery and repair of damaged muscle tissue, along with the creation of new, bigger, and stronger muscle protein tissues.
To cut the scientific jargon, using Superdrol will allow your body to build more muscle.
In order to build muscle, you need to be pushing yourself in the gym and working hard.
This is beneficial, but it can be taxing on your body and on your muscles.
After a tough workout, your muscle tissues will be damaged and broken down.
Protein synthesis allows the body to repair these tissues and to rebuild them even bigger and stronger than they were previously.
Recovery is a vital component of any training routine because if you aren’t recovering your muscles aren’t growing, they’re actually being destroyed.
When this occurs, your body will be catabolic so you’ll be losing muscle, and when you train in the gym they won’t be able to function to the best of their abilities.
Using Superdrol will increase your rates of recovery so you’ll be bigger and stronger, and you will also recover after a workout much quicker, so the next day in the gym you’ll be equally as productive.
For a lot of steroid users or potential steroid users, this is perhaps one of the most appealing benefits associated with running a cycle.
You see, Superdrol is an oral steroid, so you literally just swallow a tablet and it’s as simple as that.
It’s no different than swallowing a multivitamin supplement in the morning with your breakfast.
With injectable steroids, there’s the stigma associated with injecting yourself, sourcing your needles, disposing of them, and maybe even hiding them for your loved ones.
Not only that, but injecting yourself is very painful, plus it is difficult to do alone so you may need to ask for help.

When you train and bulk up, you want to look big and muscular.
Some bulking steroids cause you to become swollen and bloated and can result in you looking washed out. This is not a good look.
Superdrol however, is a bulking steroid that promotes hard dry gains.
This means that it allows you to build solid muscle with no bloating or water retention whatsoever.
This means that you can see your definition and vascularity, so you look muscular and jacked, rather than bloated and swollen.
Another often-overlooked benefit of using Superdrol is the fact that it has been found to promote an increase in athletic performance.
Whether you play sports or are looking to step up your energy, endurance, and intensity in the gym, Superdrol can help you out.
The reason for this is that it promotes an increase in the production of red blood cells.
If you think of red blood cells as large vehicles responsible for carrying oxygen and nutrients to your other cells, you’re on the right track.
Our cells need oxygen for energy, and so the more oxygen they have, the more energy they have.
By increasing red blood cell production, you can increase the amounts of oxygen and nutrients being carried via your bloodstream to your awaiting cells.
This means they have more fuel, you will have more energy, and the muscles will become more efficient.
This is why some athletes train at high altitudes because it has the same effect in that it increases red blood cell productions.
Now we’re going to look at few-cycle ideas to help ensure you know what you’re doing when/if you decide to use this potent oral steroid:

Now we’re going to take a look at some of the negative side effects associated with Superdrol.
Remember, even though it’s less potent than some steroids out there, it still has a number of negative side effects that must be addressed.
One common side effect associated with Superdrol is the fact that it could potentially create a spike in a person’s blood pressure, resulting in hypertension.
Hypertension is known as the silent killer because it is so difficult to detect.
In fact, primarily the only way to detect hypertension is to have your blood pressure checked.
Hypertension can lead to heart disease, stroke, heart attack, renal failure, and much more besides.
Superdrol has been found to cause a spike in the user’s blood pressure, so if you are using this drug just bear that in mind.
Perhaps the most harmful side effect of Superdrol is that it does present a number of dangers to the liver.
Liver toxicity is a very common problem when it comes to oral steroids, and Superdrol is no different.
You see, the steroid contains a modification of C-17aa which allows it to pass through the liver, and to survive.
This, in turn, causes damage to the liver.
If you have liver issues, oral steroids should be off-limits. If not, be very careful, always run PCT, and use a Milk Thistle supplement for the duration of your cycle, and indeed afterward too.
Even though this steroid does not aromatize, some users have experienced mild gyno and sensitive nipples.
This is because the steroid takes up more SHBG activity and so it allows an increased rate of free testosterone in the body to be converted into Estrogen instead.
LDL cholesterol is the dangerous cholesterol in the body which is responsible for blocked arteries, hypertension, stroke, heart disease, heart attack, and so on.
Basically, LDL cholesterol is bad news.
Unfortunately, Superdrol use has been found to increase the amounts of LDL cholesterol within the body, so you must be extremely careful when it comes to your cardiovascular health and well-being.
Superdrol has also been found to suppress the natural production of testosterone in the body, and in extreme cases, shut it down completely.
After finishing a cycle, many users often report low natural levels of testosterone, with some needing to undergo testosterone replacement therapy.
Again, this is another reason why PCT is considered to be so crucial after a cycle.
We’ve provided you with a couple of simple cycle ideas previously in this article, but we’ll now go back and refresh your memory to make sure that you are in no doubt as to how much of this steroid you need to be using.
Dosages typically start at 20mg and can go up to 40mg when running Superdrol alone.
If you choose to combine this steroid with something else, you may benefit more from lowering the dosage to just 10mg.
Again, this all depends on what your stack looks like.
Generally, however, between 10mg and 40mg per day, you should be good to go.
First off, when it comes to steroids of any kind, you should always, always run post cycle therapy after finishing your cycle.
This is to help reset your hormones and bodily functions and processes, and to help ensure that you avoid experiencing any lasting side effects which could even potentially become fatal.
Like most other forms of PCT, you should utilize a combination of Nolva and Clomid upon completing your Superdrol cycle.
