Dianabol, however, is one anabolic steroid that tends to combine very well (almost flawlessly) with other anabolic steroids that cater to the same goals. The most popular stack ever conceived in all history is the Testosterone/Dianabol/Deca-Durabolin stack , where all three anabolic steroids in that Dianabol cycle cater very well to bulking and strength gaining. Of course, the purpose of Dianabol in such a stack is to act as a kickstarting compound during the first few weeks until the primary injectable compounds (Testosterone and Nandrolone) kick in. Most usually, the ‘kick in’ period for such compounds (especially long estered anabolic steroids like the two mentioned here) occur just as Dianabol is discontinued.
As an example, should you choose to run a cycle that includes both Dianabol and Anavar, you will need to be extremely careful when it comes to overlapping them. The two are both hepatotoxic, which means they will cause liver damage. You will need to consider this carefully when it comes to choosing cycle lengths. If you take Dianabol for four weeks at the beginning of your cycle, then make the switch to Anavar, you should limit your Anavar use to four weeks, as well. This reduces your entire cycle time to eight weeks, which helps to alleviate some of the risk of liver damage.
As a beginner, you may ask yourself what in fact is a steroid cycle. In short, it refers to a period of time in which an individual use anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) for improving physical appearance, whether this is building up muscle mass, increasing strength or burning fat. Each cycle lasts between 4 weeks (in the case of oral steroid cycles) and up to 14 weeks (injectable steroid plus an oral). But there are other factors that influence a cycle length too, such as user experience - beginner, intermediate or advanced user - and goals that are wanted to be reached.
