Clenbuterol or Clen is a beta-2 agonist and shows its effects on the central nervous system on the lines of amphetamine or ephedrine. Clen is available in the market in different forms, like capsules, tablets, and injections. In medicines, Clenbuterol is recognized as a highly effective bronchodilator. It has a proven benefit for the asthma patients, and can ease the airways within minutes providing great relief to the patients. It has multiple other benefits for the bodybuilders and athletes. Sport persons in many other disciplines may also find it immensely beneficial in different ways.
Common medical benefits of Clenbuterol
Clenbuterol has the capacity to increase flexibility of any kinds of muscles. However, it is found to open up, partially closed airway to the lungs. In the asthma patients, the airway gets stiffened prohibiting the free-flow of air to and from the lungs. People diagnosed with recurrent airway obstruction (RAO), and any kinds of inflammatory airway disease (IAD) are often prescribed Clenbuterol. It is also prescribed in bronchopneumonia in some situations. The doses are fixed depending on the severity of the disease or asthma attack.
Clenbuterol for athletes
Over the decades, Clenbuterol has been recognized as one of the most effective and performance enhancing drugs. It is a true sports medicine in every aspect:
- It can increase lean mass of the body
- It increases flexibility of the muscles
- It can increase the volume of oxygen in the blood, which is also a beneficial matter for the sports persons
- It reduces body fat without affecting the lean mass of the body
- Athletes diagnosed with EIPH (Exercise Induced Pulmonary Hemorrhage) are often prescribed Clenbuterol
According to this article, athletes are more concerned about lean mass, and muscular endurance, than pumped up muscles. Thus, Clen is a perfect steroid for the sports persons. Bodybuilders on the other hand, stack Clen with other androgenic steroids for having maximum effects on the body. As the other steroids take care of muscle building, Clen helps the body builders to increase muscle endurance, and burn bodyfats.
Clenbuterol also has an immense capacity of increasing, and sustaining the levels of oxygen transportation in the circulatory system and strengthen the aerobic capacity of the lungs. It can also stimulate the CNS (Central Nervous System), and specifically target beta-2 receptors that help in the stimulation of muscle growth, and increase nitrogen retention in the muscles. As the level of nitrogen in the muscles increase, the muscle mass increases simultaneously.
Doses and cycles of Clenbuterol
Clenbuterol is an excellent choice for cutting cycles. It can also be used during a post cycle therapy. Athletes prefer to use it throughout the year in moderate doses. Depending on the target, doses vary remarkably. If Clen only cycle is maintained, the doses may vary from 60mcg-140mcg for males, and 40mcg-120mcd for females. Clenbuterol is mostly used in “2-day on and 2-day off” or “3-day on and 3-day off” cycle. Experts ask to follow a healthy diet with plenty of fruits, and potassium tablets, while an athlete in on Clen only cycle.
