Anabolic steroids differ in their characteristics, which means there are steroids that are only suitable for specific uses. For instance, Trenbolone is not recommended for bulking but it is an outstanding fat burner. This makes it perfect for a lean mass cycle or a cutting cycle. Always take the side effects of a particular compound into consideration whenever you plan a stack. Do not combine anabolic steroids that show similar side effects. For example, never combine Anapolon and Dianabol because they are already quite toxic and if you combine them, the toxicity will increase exponentially and cause serious damage to your body.
I disagree. I feel great despite looking puffy with estrogenic compounds if I have a good test base. And I feel great on androgenic compounds as long as I have some estrogen going around. Nothing wrecks my body worse than an oral steroid. I get insane hypertension that is difficult to control, terrible heartburn, and wound up with a fatty liver. Then, for some reason my body goes crazy with the cortisone following an oral cycle too. Next on my list are progesterone and prolactin side effects though it seems these are treatable at least. The androgenic sides are tolerable and can be mitigated. I know we all respond in different ways but to me, androgens are fine unless you are a woman and it is a deal breaker for you.
