Again, an oral steroid is completely optional. Oral steroids can add some complexity to cycles if we start throwing in more compounds. You'll find AI dosing starts to become more complicated, as not only do you need to find your dosing for whilst on Dianabol and Testosterone, but then you also need to readjust once you come off the Dianabol. But regardless, it's a timeless classic and has been used for first cycles for a long long time. Other options include Anadrol or Superdrol, both of which do not aromatize, but have been known to cause Gyno by some other mechanism. If you choose to use Anadrol or Superdrol, it is recommended to have Raloxifene on hand in case of a Gyno Flair-Up .
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.
