Clenbuterol as assumed by everyone is not a steroid; it is a central nervous system stimulant that was developed for treating asthma and other respiratory diseases. Primarily developed as a smooth muscle relaxer this muscle was popular for treating chronic obstructive disorders. While using this drug for the treatment of these diseases its other benefits came to light I.e. fat burning and a performance enhancing. Clen belongs to Beta 2 Sympathomimetic drug class. This is marketed under various trade names such as Dilaterol, Ventipulmin or Spiropent.
Additional to the several benefits, Clen also preserves the lean muscle mass which was developed. For men, this is famous in the cutting cycle and for women it is used both in the bulking and cutting cycles. As Clen has fewer androgenic effects on the female body when it is used in the bulking cycle along with a proper diet and exercise routine, shows great results in women. This improves the cardiovascular performance by increasing oxygen transportation within the body; this allows the user to train more and results in a lean, sculpted body.
When Clen molecules bind with the adrenoreceptors of the adipose (fat) tissue, they stimulate and initiate lipolysis. This is the reason this has gained popularity among celebrities and weight loss industry. At the same time when these molecules bind with the muscular tissue they have anabolic effect for women athletes or bodybuilders. There are very few drugs which have different effect on different muscles and Clen is one among them. But the user should make sure that they follow a healthy diet and exercise for weight loss.
Clenbuterol cycles for weight loss
Clen for better fitness and weight loss has become very famous because of its fast results. For beginners it’s recommended to start with a small dose of 20mcg per day and increase depending on how the body is taking the drug. For males the maximum amount that is generally tolerated in 120-160mcg and in females it is just 80-120mcg per day. But the difference is that in females, as little as 40mcg shows good results. The cycling of the drug is very important as the body might get used to the drug and will not give the desired results when the dosage is same for a prolonged period. Once the user gets to know the personal tolerance level then a cycle of 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off is followed to maximize gains. But at any time it is not recommended to take Clen for more 12 weeks at a stretch.
