hi,i have 100 10mg dbol tabs and was wondering if its worth taking them,i just started training again ,i get in shape pretty quick,im currently taking only protein creatine and acetyl l carnitine.i know iv heard that its pointless if not stacking with an oil but iv heard tht you can get good gains and keep them ,iv also heard you can take dbol in a low dose as a supplement 5days on 2 of.at 10mg a day.all the old school bodybuilders only had dbol aparently ,arny mainly used dbol.thanx in dvance for the advice
all the old school bodybuilders had low dose dianabols, but they stacked it with a shot of test a week...
don't do it...you'll get puffy and watery and depressed when you lose most of your gains coming off...get some test and make better use of the dbol
you aren't going to keep much of the gains from dbol...most of the gains from dbol is water and you will lose all of that once you stop taking it...all of the "old school" bodybuilders took ridiculous amounts of dbol, not low dose, in addition to deca and primo and many of them never came off of steroids and most of them that I know from that era will tell you that it was stupid given today's knowledge....test was not used in bodybuilding until the mid-80's unless they were cross-overs from powerlifting, which is where test was first used and was rampant in the 70's

dbol also has a short half life so going 5 on 2 off would be kind of stupid as when your blood levels would not stay stable and the sides would be way worse
watch all 4 parts of this video on steroids in the 70s and 80s---go to youtube.com and type in Ric Drasin Steroids Part 1

I'll watch the other 2 later when I get a chance.
Below is Arnold Schwarzenegger's supposed cycle that he used throughout his bodybuilding career. I've asked several guys that I know that competed against him and/or were bodybuilding during that era and they all have said that was the common stack that all bodybuilders used during that time. We'll obviously never know if this was Arnold's cycle or not, but I'm willing to bet that it was based off of information I've gathered from guys of that era.

honestly they didnt really "cycle" back then in an organized and structured way..I've heard they would take 1 dbol a day and a shot of test a week...the dbols were only 5mgs!!!
this was taken from an article in md a year ago
I don't really put much credence into articles or videos about stuff back then (or now really for that matter) and go by the anecdotal evidence from actual people of that era that I talk to often. Clinical studies don't show the whole truth when it comes to bodybuilding type dosages because no clinical studies cover that really. Those studies can give somewhat of a good research start, but you have to take anecdotal evidence into consideration when you start messing with these types of dosages.

another thing that got added in in the late 70's was tbol after the '76 German Women's Olympic team had such great success
Check out 'Bigger, Stronger, Faster' if you haven't seen it. It's a great pretty recent documentary on AAS and the supplement industry in the US.
