If cutting was easy, then losing weight would’ve been a cakewalk.
The fact though, is that cutting sucks and people usually do everything wrong when they try to cut and lose weight.
They restrict themselves. Naturally, they rebound after a short while and regain the meager amount of water weight that they had lost in the first place.
They cut out a specific food group and within a short time, it starts to get unbearable and the diet fails.
Then come crash diets, which are never sustainable in the long run.
If you have to cut and lose weight, you have to exercise and you need something as potent as Clenbuterol.
Clenbuterol is probably the only fat burner in the world that works.
There’s DNP too. But that shit is so toxic that you shouldn’t even touch it with a barge pole.
Clen is a million times safer and almost as effective as DNP is.
If you have wondered how to cut with Clenbuterol, then this brief guide will help you get your basics right. (Learn more about another cutting agent: Winstrol).
What is Clenbuterol?
Clenbuterol Hydrochloride is a sympathomimetic stimulant.
That’s not a tongue twister. It’s a group of drugs that are used to stimulate the sympathomimetic nervous system, to produce a desired result.
In this case, the result is to reverse any obstruction in the airway that may be preventing the person from breathing normally. (Asthma Attack)
However, some smart researchers found out that stimulating the sympathomimetic nervous system also produces an undesired result at a mitochondrial level.
It signals our cells to produce heat and release it. This in turn increases our body temperature ever so slightly.
This slight increase is more than sufficient though to start burning stored fat reserves.
So Clenbuterol helps us burn fat by increasing our body temperature, an effect commonly known as Thermogenic.
There’s also some controversial claims that say that Clenbuterol may help you prevent muscle loss and also promote better healing. There are animal-model clinical studies that have proven this.
The general consensus in bodybuilding circles though, is that this effect is limited to animals and that it does not translate to humans.
What does Clenbuterol do?
Clenbuterol has a very simple mode of action. It stimulates Beta-2 receptors in the sympathomimetic nervous system, which in turn, increases the body temperature.
Your metabolism gets boosted by around 10% and you start to burn fat.
There’s a catch though.
If you are at an extremely high body fat percentage, like say, 30% or more, then Clenbuterol will probably do nothing for you.
You’ll have to hit the gym, lower that body fat to within 20 and then do a Clenbuterol cycle to notice the fat burning effects.
We have seen a bunch of posts on messaging boards that say that they got bunk Clen or that Clen doesn’t work.
Neither are true. Clen works. And it is rarely faked.
It’s mostly because the person who used it was too fat for it to work effectively.
How to use Clenbuterol?
A Clenbuterol cycle is usually started at a very low dose, which is then increased gradually until a peak dose, or tolerable dose is achieved.
Let’s say that you start at 20mcg, which is probably the lowest dose that most people start with.
You will bump it up in 20mcg increments every week or so until you reach a dose where the side effects become intolerable. Then you taper it down a tad and hold it at that dose to keep the fat burning effect working.
The dosage needs to be increased because your body builds a tolerance to Clenbuterol pretty soon. So after two weeks at 20mcg, it will no longer be sufficient to induce fat burn.
So you bump it up slightly and keep the fat burn going.
There are three ways that are commonly used in the bodybuilding community.
1. Continuous use until you reach your goal:
This is the easiest way as it is least likely to produce some of the nasty side effects of Clen. You start with a low dose of 20mcg and you continue at that dose for two to three weeks. Then you increase the dose slightly and use at that dose for another two to three weeks. You can either stop or continue doing this until you achieve your goal.
2. The Two by Two protocol:
You use Clenbuterol for two weeks and discontinue it for two weeks. This helps break the resistance that the body builds up.
3. The 6-week protocol:
You use Clen in an increasing dosage pattern for 4-6 weeks. By the time you end the 6-week cycle, you should be at the maximum tolerable dose for you. At this point, the side effects are not worth the results. Stop and take 6-weeks off before restarting the cycle.
Diet during Clenbuterol
You’ll need to diet even when you are using Clenbuterol.
So if you thought that it’s a magic bullet that can burn fat while you gorge on cheeseburgers, you were mistaken.
You don’t need to do anything drastic though.
Just eat in a slight calorie deficit and let Clen do the magic.
Exercise during Clenbuterol
The stimulation of the Beta-2 receptors will open up your airways allowing you to breathe better.
This has a positive effect on your exercise as you will be able to work out for longer.
However, the increased body temperature will make it near impossible to do hardcore cardio.
Your heart rate will shoot up to unsafe levels.
So it is recommended that you stick to heavy weights and club it with low intensity cardio only.
What are the side effects of Clenbuterol?
We bet that all that talk about stimulating the sympathomimetic nervous system sounded so cool.
Sadly, it’s also one of the most uncomfortable effects that you can ever experience.
As your body temperature shoots up, you will feel warm all day. Your heart rate will constantly be above normal. In some people, it is severe enough to cause palpitations.
You will also experience severe jitters or tremors, especially as you increase the dosage.
Insomnia is another side effect along with painful muscle cramps.
Most of these side effects are manageable at low doses. Stay hydrated and supplement with Taurine to minimize the cramp.
Take your last Clen dose at least 6-hours before you hit the sack to prevent insomnia.
Last but not the least, avoid using a higher dose just because you want faster results. Stick to a normal dosage schedule and you should be fine.
