I see this all the time, and don’t get me wrong it makes sense why people say it. But truth be told… steroids are steroids. Dbol is no exception. It increases performance, nitrogen retention, strength and muscle mass. People think it’s somehow counter productive for cutting think so because of the water weight.
Well to start off, I think a lot of people use way too much DBol. People running 50 mg/wk the first time they take it, along side another aromatizing compound like test and they get puffy. Water retention is your enemy if you are competing in a BB show, but it’s good for strength, joints, and overall performance… I find through my experiences and people I know that 50 mg doesn’t give you that much more benefit than 25 mg a day, yet more sides. The diminishing returns for benefits are quick, but the water retention and other sides seem to be linear or even exponential.
TL;DR it’s a strong ass drug that’s gonna make you keep strength and muscle and even build it during a cut. 25mg / day still provides a shit ton of gains if you have properly dosed stuff — but keeps water retention at a minimum for MOST people, and regardless an AI can be used to keep that under control.
It’s just as good on a cut as in a bulk. Anyone that disagrees is thinking with their emotions rather than logically and objectively… which is how humans think so I don’t blame them.
I’d love to here other opinions and hopefully not gonna get bashed for this one.
