there seems to be much controversy regarding clen use in general. most hate the side effects. some say it works great and some say it doesnt work at all. i have read some threads and it is only a thermogenic and others say it has some anabolic effects.
so what does it do? what is it good for? is it only a thermogenic or does it have anabolic properties?
i have run clen cycles twice now (three times but the first one was when i was fat and had no idea what i was doing and didnt take it for very long). the first cycle was for 2 weeks. i started at around 20mcg and made my way up to 140mcg. the shakes sucked and the cramps werent great but i do feel like i had some good thermogenesis from it and fat loss.
my second cycle started on april 30th. some of you may remember my thread discussing dosing and some of the thoughts that i had in there about clenbuterols use in horses. i started at about 80mcg and then dropped to around 40mcg for a week or so and then back up to 80mcg. i have stayed there for almost 3 weeks now. i will end my cycle this saturday.
i wanted to take it like we administer in horses. i wanted to see what effects it would have at a low consistent dose. so what have i found out.....
well, i dont think at the lower dose that it has as much thermogenic capacity. i dont feel like i have lost much in the way of body fat although i cant say for sure as i havent measured it but based on the way the clothes fit and the way the pics look, i would say that it hasnt done much there.
side effects arent bad at all. i have taken 1000mg of taurine once daily, along with 500mg of K+ and Mg+. i took one shot of B12 5000mg IM about half way through. other than headaches when i havent drank enough water, everything else is minimal. mild shaking and mild cramps but nothing really bad.
the biggest effect i have seen, great strength improvement. i have been struggling with my chest workouts for 8 months. instead of increasing they have been decreasing and it was very frustrating. last week i got the 55# db for 10 reps and that hasnt happened for about 10 months. then today for bench i did 115# for 12, 135# for 8, 145# for 4 and 155# for 3. the 135# for 8, no spotter, is the most reps i have ever done at 135 before and i could have done two more had i had a spotter.
so i think maybe some should take another look at clen. yes, it does have some potential serious sides but if one can get some good anabolic effects at a fairly low dose, wouldnt that be a good thing?
has anybody else run it at low doses for an extended period of time?
