A Guide to Beginner Steroid Cycles For Men

Steroid Cycles For Men

There are a lot of myths surrounding steroid use in general. It can be hard for beginner athletes or fitness enthusiasts that are new to this world of bodybuilding gear because there is so much information out there that it’s hard not get lost in the options.

If you’re looking for clear cut advice on how to get started with your first steroid cycle then I’ve got you covered!

What Are Anabolic Steroids?

Besides the obvious benefits they give you, such as improved muscle growth and strength, anabolic steroids are also great for helping you lose weight. You see, when you take them, your body will start producing more protein than fat, which makes you burn more calories.

Anabolic steroids are the same as the male hormones. They are used to treat a variety of conditions including depression, baldness, and high cholesterol. In addition, they can help you build muscle and lose weight. As with any drug, there is the possibility of side effects such as:

  • Headaches
  • Liver damage
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Irregular heart beat
  • Muscle cramps
  • Osteoporosis

What is a Beginners Steroid Cycle?

Beginners Steroid Cycle

A beginners’ cycle is a term used to describe the first course of performance-enhancing drugs taken by new athletes.

A beginners steroid cycle is not recommended for use by all athletes because of the risk of negative side effects. They will contain fewer steroids than an intermediate or advanced cycle. This lesser number is designed to help prevent some of the negative side effects that are associated with more advanced cycles.

A beginner’s steroid cycle will typically consist of what would generally be considered the weakest forms of anabolic steroids, or the relatively strong ones, but in much lower doses.

The addition of other drugs is sometimes recommended depending on the athlete’s goal and desired outcome. Most beginners’ cycles last about 8 weeks but can be as low as 4.


In the world of bodybuilding, there are many different steroids that people can use. Some people think the best beginner anabolic steroid cycle is a low dose which can help someone to get used to how it feels to take a steroid.

While others believe that taking a high dose might be the best way for a beginner because they end up getting a lot more growth from their cycle, this approach isn’t generally recommended. 

A newbie will have a better chance of sticking with a steroid cycle if they start with a lower dose because they’ll be able to control how much of the steroid they’re taking. If they have to stop a cycle early, they won’t experience any side effects from the steroid because they haven’t built up a tolerance to it yet.

If you’re new to steroids, you’ll probably want to start with a lower dose and work your way up to higher doses as you get more comfortable and familiar with taking steroids.

What You Need to Know Before Starting Your First Steroid Cycle?

Before starting any steroid cycle, there are some things that you need to know about how it works and how it can affect you: You should know that steroids can be a dangerous drug if taken incorrectly or in excess. You should always follow the instructions of the product that you’re using and the manufacturer’s recommendations.

In order to get the best results from your cycle, you will need to use the correct dosages for your goals and body type. It is important that you only take a dose when you feel ready.

It is important that you choose the right beginner steroid cycle for yourself because the wrong one could lead to serious health risks or even permanent damage to your body. The following steroid cycles are designed for beginners who are looking to build muscle but not have too many side effects.

3 Beginner Cycles You Can Try

3 Beginner Cycles

1. Winstrol Cycle

This is considered the best beginner cycle because it allows people to experience what a steroid cycle is like without putting themselves at risk. This means it’s safe to use in the beginning stages of a steroid cycle. It also doesn’t have any harmful side effects and has a very low risk of causing any problems with the user’s liver.

Although we don’t recommend Winstrol as a first steroid cycle, If you’re just starting a steroid cycle, the following protocol is designed for newbies. It uses lower doses and is not very aggressive.

2. Anavar Cycle

Anavar (Oxandrolone) is a synthetic anabolic steroid and is used primarily by bodybuilders and athletes to increase muscle mass and improve performance. It is one of the most popular anabolic steroids available. Anavar has a number of positive anabolic effects on the body. It promotes protein synthesis (the body’s primary source of mass), increases nitrogen retention in the body and stimulates the liver to make more red blood cells. These properties make anavar an extremely effective drug for increasing muscle mass in both men and women.

Therefore, if you’re looking to build a ton of muscle from your first cycle, Anavar won’t be the best choice. But, if you want to start a cycle to speed up the process, Anavar will be a great choice because of its safety profile. For beginners, it’s a great option because it’s a well-tolerated anabolic steroid.

3. Dianabol Cycle

What is Dianabol? It is a synthetic anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS). It was not until the 1990s that it gained widespread use by bodybuilders and athletes as a performance-enhancing drug. It is now banned by the Olympics and the major sports organizations such as the NFL and MLB. However, it is still used by many non-elite athletes and bodybuilders to enhance their performance. In fact, some professional athletes have been known to take it just before or after a game to help them recover from the rigors of the sport. It has also gained popularity among women who want to build strong, muscular muscles. However, it is still considered a “steroid” by the mainstream medical community because it promotes growth in muscle mass while suppressing (not eliminating) fat storage.

Post Cycle Therapy

Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) is the process of recovering from the side effects of a steroid cycle. It can be a very difficult process because the body is trying to eliminate the foreign substances from the system. To help the body get back to its pre-cycle state, you will need to follow a PCT protocol.

Most of the PCT protocols available on the market are designed for people who have been using anabolic steroids for more than a year. This means that they are very aggressive and may cause serious side effects.

When you stop taking steroids your body will go into a state of shutdown. During this time your own body needs to produce testosterone to replace the hormones your body is no longer receiving from the PEDs. This is why it’s so important to do a proper PCT. It will prevent any adverse side effects, and kick-start the testosterone production in your body.

What To Use For Your PCT

What To Use For PCT

Clomid (Clomiphene)

The “clomid pill” is a selective estrogen receptor modulator, and it works by helping regulate the level of estrogen in your body. By keeping your estrogen levels in check, it also has a positive effect on your testosterone levels. It’s incredibly potent, and by far the strongest post cycle therapy compound you can use. And since it’s so powerful, it should only be used for a duration of about 2-4 weeks. However, this depends on how badly suppressed your natural hormone levels are.


Another common post cycle compound is Nolvadex. It’s a SERM, which means it has the ability to help lower estrogen levels in the body. After you complete a cycle, you will notice a significant increase in estrogen, which will cause a decrease in testosterone. Nolvadex is there to prevent this from happening and to keep your testosterone levels high. It’s slightly less effective than Clomid, but it’s still a great option if you are looking for a quick way to restore your hormones.


Steroids are a powerful tool in the bodybuilding arsenal. They can help you build muscle mass, increase your strength, and improve your overall health. But, before you start using them, make sure you know what you’re doing. 

Remember, the best steroid for you is the one that makes you feel the best. Make sure you are comfortable with your decision and that you are 100% committed to following the cycle properly.

To conclude, here are a few points to keep in mind:

Anabolic steroids are not for everyone. If you have any history of heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, diabetes or liver problems, you should probably not use steroids. In fact, if you have any of these conditions, you should probably not exercise at all. (But hey, that’s another topic…)

If you decide to use steroids, you need to be very careful about how much you use. Too much of a good thing can indeed be bad. You need to find the right “Goldilocks” level for you. Too little and you won’t get the results you’re looking for. Too much and you may experience unwanted side effects.

You need to know your limits. Don’t use more than you can handle. This is especially true when you start a cycle. Remember, your body has never had to deal with this type of stress before. So, you may experience unpleasant side effects such as acne, water retention, insomnia, anxiety, aggression and more.
