When it comes to the best steroids for fat loss – look no further than clenbuterol.
Clen will NOT help you gain 30lbs of muscle, but it can help you get ripped to shreds.
…That’s if you’re relatively lean to begin with.
If you’re morbidly obese, don’t expect to look like a Mens Physique model after an 8 week cycle.
Taking clenbuterol is a way to accelerate fat burning beyond your bodies natural means. Not to magically turn your midsection from looking like Donald Trump to Frank Zane.
Clen is usually taken by people who have hit a fat loss plateau and want to keep progressing/getting leaner.
Clenbuterol’s results differ from person to person, however the most common benefits of taking clen include:
- Elevated metabolism
- Increased energy
- Increased strength
The reason why clenbuterol is so effective at burning fat is because of it’s ability to spike a users metabolism. Clen does this through the process of thermogenesis. This is where your bodies overall temperature increases due to extra adrenaline production. Then because your body wants to keep a level of homeostasis, it works hard to cool it back down again.
This constant regulating of your body temperature is the reason why you’ll burn a lot more calories on clen. Consequently, you’re more likely to under-eat and burn fat.
Just imagine a 40 year old man reversing the clock and having the same metabolism of what he had in his teenage years. This is essentially what clenbuterol does, enabling you to get away with eating more food and still lose weight.
How Much Weight Will You Lose on Clen?
As a general rule, you should be looking to burn 1% of body fat each week you’re on clenbuterol.
If you take it for 8 weeks you should have burned at least 6% body fat.
6% may not sound like a lot, but this may translate to a good 16lbs of weight loss.
Losing this much weight will make a huge difference in the mirror . Your muscle tone will increase significantly and your 6 pack abs will become more visible.
Clenbuterol Results: Before and After Pictures
One of the highest-profile celebrities who (I believe) has taken clenbuterol is Wolverine, aka Hugh Jackman.
Hugh was lean in the very first X-Men movie, then got SHREDDED in X-Men origins: Wolverine…then continued showing off his ripped physique in the rest of his Marvel films.
The reason why I believe Hugh was taking clen is because it’s known for giving users a red-look to their skin. This is a sign of an elevated temperature, caused by the thermogenic effect of clen.
In Days of Future Past, Wolvie is seen with this flushed look to his skin…
How to Maximize Results on Clen
How much fat you’ll burn on clenbuterol will heavily depend on:
- How hard you workout
- How strict your diet is
If you take clenbuterol, but your workouts are lousy – don’t expect miracles. Guys who take clenbuterol can get insanely shredded, but the key is to combine this cutting agent with intense workouts and a fierce work ethic.
For maximum fat loss when cutting, I recommend you do regular cardio to increase your calorie expenditure. I personally love doing HIIT (high intensity interval training), because of it’s effectiveness at removing stubborn belly fat.
I hop on the seated bike and do 30 second sprints (as fast as you can!), followed by 30 seconds of rest. You should repeat this for 20-30 minutes, based on how well you’re coping.
…probably not too well if it’s your first time!
This high intensity will help spike human growth hormone levels, allowing you to burn even more fat.
When I say be strict with your diet, I don’t mean by eating clean/boring foods all the time.
I mean you’ve got to constantly eat in a calorie deficit.
You can eat whatever junk foods you like and still get ripped, as long as you’re consuming less calories than your body burns.
What to Stack Clenbuterol With for Better Results?
You can expect to melt fat even faster if you use other cutting steroids in the same stack as clen.
Here’s some of the best cutting agents:
Anavar is another incredibly effective fat burner. Winstrol is a great fat burner, but equally good at building muscle. And testosterone is awesome for those looking to build muscle and burn fat at the same time.
