Dianabol (Methandienone) also spelled metandienone and talked about as simply ‘Dbol’ is the most used oral anabolic steroid in history. It is a classic steroid still very popular especially with the older generations who did not care so much about aesthetics and being skinny or lean. Dbol is considered a ‘dummy proof’ steroid because anybody can use it and have easy results within a few weeks. It is also one of the cheapest steroids, with a full cycle costing less than $100.
Dianabol (Methandienone) was developed by pharma company CIBA in 1955 for androgen replacement therapy. American Olympic doctor John Ziegler is credited with introducing the steroid to athletes to try and get a leg up on their Russian rivals. He liked that it could be orally taken, taking away the injecting aspect. It was also used in the 1960s by college and pro football players.
CIBA would later stop producing it in 1983 due to government pressure, and the FDA in 1985 revoked it entirely, which was followed by a complete ban on non-medical use in 1990 in the United States. Today, it is produced in other countries for some medical reasons and used by bodybuilders and weight lifters in the USA.
Dianabol (Methandienone) is almost exclusively an oral tablet, but some underground labs have tried selling it as an injectable with little success. On paper, it is 50% more anabolic and half as androgenic as Testosterone.
Developers took Testosterone and added in the below 2 so it could not be destroyed by the liver. :
A 17th carbon position methyl group
A double bond to carbon positions 1-2
Quite simply, Dianabol (Methandienone) is testosterone in oral form with some minor changes ((Chapter 15, Medical Toxicology of Drug Abuse: Synthesized Chemicals and Psychoactive Plants by Donald G. Barceloux)).
Bulking and strength
Dianabol (Methandienone) is great for bulking and strength trainers. It does this well because it is a wet compound, quickly filling the muscles with lots of water like filling up a water balloon. Remember the muscles are made up of mostly water.
Athletes can enjoy a boost in protein synthesis and a fast rise in nitrogen because the steroid works so fast. I can confirm that within a week on it, my weight had jumped many pounds even without increasing my food intake. It also prevents muscle eating hormones like cortisol to rise, making it much easier to gain lots of mass.
Powerlifters report a fast rise in all their lifts and I personally can remember my bench going up 15 pounds within days on it after I was stuck at a plateau for months.
During the golden era, guys would use handfuls of Dianabol (Methandienone) daily to help them with strength and size.
Dianabol (Methandienone) is very versatile and can be used for different types of goals in many different situations. You can use it by itself, stack it, use as a kickstart, and much more. Generally, the dosages range from 10mg a day up to 50mg a day. Here are the main ways bodybuilders use it to their benefit:
Mass builder: Guys have been depending on it for decades to build lots of muscle mass quickly.
Powerlifting: Using it solo or as part of a stack with Testosterone or Trenbolone will rapidly increase strength.
Bodybuilding: Stacking it in with a mild steroid such as Primobolan can add a nice androgenic kick to your cycle.
Use as a kickstart: This is the most classic and old school way to use it. You simply run it at the start of a longer injectable cycle to give you results while the longer ester is building up in the body.
