Question: I have read
your 13 part series of Steroid Q&A through newsletters I receive by
e-mail. Very informative and interesting. I have enjoyed and learned from
them wanted to say thank you.
However I do have a few questions for you, concerning
steroids, if you don’t mind.
I am a 40-year-old woman; I have 5 children and have been
married for going on 25 years. I am very petite weighing 115 pounds. I
am very active and have been all my life. I wear a size "0" in jeans. I
would like to try and compete in female bodybuilding. Need advice on the
cycle I was on.
I was taking 40mg of D-Bol per day for 8 weeks; I took
Deca at 100 mg every other week for 8 weeks. I also took Winny at 20 mg
per day for 8 weeks. I seen a very huge improvement in my gains especially
my strength. Once I started this cycle my leg press went from a mere 240
pounds to 540 pounds at 8 reps. I was truly impressed. Guess I need to
know if I can start this same cycle over again or if I should try another
cycle and if so what would be good for a woman of my age and goals???
Thank you for your time and consideration. Keep up the
good work and fantastic articles.
Answer: 40 years old,
married 25 years, 5 children and wanting to compete in female bodybuilding?
To top it off you wear a size "0" in jeans? You, madam, have what it takes
to go the distance in any endeavor you opt to undertake!
The female athlete is, as I have said many times prior,
a whole different species (and fascinating) when it comes to chemistry.
The questions of short and long term goals, contraceptives used and personal
sensitivity to androgens has to be taken into consideration before any
thoughts of structuring a AAS protocol can begin.
Well Hung Women?
First I must warn that as a rule that AAS like testosterone,
trenbolone, methoxymetholone (AD-50) methandrostenolone (D-Bol) and other
high androgenics have a significant risk for triggering masculinizing side-effects
in women. This would include facial and body hair growth, deepening of
voice and clitoral enlargement (the last has some benefits upon libido…if
within reason). If this is not a concern, then even still the steps to
planned progressive cycling are paramount to eventual results.
Beginning with a very high anabolic/low androgenic protocol
provides a good structure to gain enough information to allow for more
specific and individualistic construction. Something as simple as 28 days
employing only Oxandrolone (Anavar) at a dosage of 5-10mg 3xd (Oxandrolone
has a half-life of about 8 hours and the goal is to maintain constant circulatory
levels in most AAS protocols). This is a high anabolic but very low androgenic
AAS and the chances or masculinizing side effects are quite low.
Keep The Diet Simple
With a high protein intake (about 1.5g per pound of bodyweight
daily) and a diet that provides 18-20 calories per pound of bodyweight
daily, this protocol should result in an addition of 4-8 pounds of new
mostly lean mass.
If the need to buy mustache wax failed to arise the next
protocol would be a bit more aggressive and mass orientated.

A Quick Summary
Stanozolol (Winstrol) is a derivative of DHT though it
has some progestin receptor stimulating qualities. For the ladies the result
is a hardening effect with few masculinizing side effects in all but very
Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca) is a very high anabolic/low-moderate
androgenic AAS that reduces the androgenic effects of the more mild DHT
(dehydrotestosterone) derivatives by acting as a weak DHT receptor blocker
to some degree. This is due to the fact that nandrolone is reduced by the
5-Alpha-reductase enzyme to nor-DHT instead of the much more powerful DHT.
The result is similar to the actions of Nolvadex in that it fits into the
target receptor but does little to activate it while blocking more powerful
derivatives from merging.
If this protocol failed to cause a woman to pee standing
up the next logical AAS addition would be the same protocol structure with
the inclusion of Oxandrolone (5-10mg 3xd) or Boldenone (50mg 2 times weekly).
Female HPTA Regeneration?
Naturally the need for post-cycle HPTA regeneration is
not needed in women since they do not have testes. (Hey, no joke, I actually
had a woman who complained that I had written nothing on the subject of
Female HPTA regeneration). Though there is the consideration of adrenal
androgen production natural to the ladies. As a rule 2 weeks of DHEA 50mg/d
normalizes this after this type of protocol structure.
The goal is to make steps in progress with a specific
intent in mind not guessing and hoping not to run into irreversible negative
