G’day fellow users of this site and of possibly more.
The question with a bit of background as to why I ask and did what I did.
The application of Clen in a cycle is to reduce body fat, it’s uses as an actual bronchodilator in bodybuilders is… questionable. Do other bronchodilators have the same effect as Clen?
A year off a decade ago at the age of knowing everything (in this case 14) I was training as an athlete at a sports academy. Working out for 2.5 hrs a day boxing, kick boxing and swimming. The end goal at the year was to work at a beach with 3.5 metre waves.
I had a cold that formed into bronchitis (I am prone to it due to having lung disease as a baby) I was put on a bronchodilator to help clear my system of the swamp that was in my lungs. Also didn’t help that I was a smoker of the herb and tobacco variety… I was a stupid kid okay!
I was taking it in puffer form and I noticed that when I had it before swimming I would gain all this energy (increased oxygen intake) and at my school we had lap day, swimming a certain number of laps. Each time if you went more than 2 laps bellow your PB you were punished (boxing the teacher, wall sits, 100 burpees whatever) and 2 laps above meant that you had to preform at that or above.
So it was a no brainer for my yolo mind, I took this stuff. I preformed better than ever, got shredded at 4% by calipers so maybe 6-8%? I wasn’t big muscle wise but I was already 6ft 2, dem lanky gains.
I feel in a large part it was due to the bronchodilator that I got shredded or maybe just due to the performance increase…
So my question, can you use any bronchodilator as replacement for clen, and if in puffer form how would you dose it?
