    Take a look at your diet and training before using clen. I'm not against it, but clen is pretty rough on the heart rate. Use it with caution. Good luck! Here's a FAQ to answer any questions.

    Clen FAQ


    Clenbuterol FAQ: Everything you need to know about Clen
    I wrote this because of all the confusion that surrounds this drug. Enjoy.

    What is Clenbuterol?

    Clenbuterol is a beta-2 agonist and is used in many countries as a broncodilator for the treatment of asthma. Because of it's long half life, clenbuterol is not FDA approved for medical use. It is a central nervous system stimulant and acts like adrenaline. It shares many of the same side effects as other CNS stimulants like ephedrine. Contrary to popular belief, Clenbuterol has a half life of 35 hours and not 48 hours.

    Dosing and Cycling

    Clenbuterol comes in 20mcg tablets, although it is also available in syrup, pump and injectable form. Doses are very dependent on how well the user responds to the side effects, but somewhere in the range of 5-8 tablets per day for men and 1-4 tablets a day for women is most common. Clenbuterol loses its thermogenic effects after 6-8 weeks when body temperature drops back to normal. It's anabolic/anti-catabolic properties fade away at around the 18 day mark. Taking the long half life into consideration, the most effective way of cycling clen is 2 weeks on/ 2 weeks off for no more than 12 weeks. Ephedrine can be used in the off weeks.

    Clenbuterol vs Ephedrine vs DNP

    Ephedrine will raise metabolic levels by about 2-3 percent and 200mg of DNP raises metabolic levels by about 30 percent. Clenbuterol raises metabolic levels about 10 percent and it can raise body temperature several degrees.

    DNP is by far the most effective fat burner but many people will never use it because of the risks associated with it. It also offers no anti-catabolic benefit. Although it does have anti-catabolic effect, ephedrine short half life prevents it from being all that effective.

    As far as side effects, Clenbuterol's are certainly milder than DNP's, and some would even say milder than an ECA stack. There is no ECA-style crash on Clenbuterol and many users find it easier on the prostate and sex drive. This may in part be due to the fact that Clen is generally used for only 2 weeks at a time.

    Side effects

    NAUSEA
    NERVOUSNESS
    DIZZINESS
    DROWSINESS
    DRY MOUTH
    FACIAL FLUSHING
    HEADACHE
    HEARTBURN
    INCREASED BLOOD PRESSURE
    INCREASED SWEATING
    INSOMNIA
    LIGHTHEADEDNESS
    MUSCLE CRAMPS
    TREMORS
    VOMITING
    CHEST PAIN

    The most significant side effects are muscle cramps, nervousness, headaches, and increased blood pressure.

    Muscle cramps can be avoided by drinking 1.5-2 gallons of water and consuming bananas and oranges or supplementing with GNC potassium tablets at 200-400mg a day taken before bed on an empty stomach.

    Headaches can easily be avoided with Tylenol Extra Strength taken at the first signs of a headache. You may need to take double the recommended dose.

    Common Uses

    Post-Cycle Therapy: Clen is used post cycle to aid in recovery. It allows the user to continue eating large amounts of food, without worrying about adding body fat. It also helps the user maintain more of his strength as well as his intensity in the gym. Diet: Roughly the same as on cycle.

    Fat loss: The most popular use for Clen, it also increases muscle hardness, vascularity, strength and size on a caloric deficit. For the most significant fat loss, Clen can be stacked with T3. Diet: A high protein(1.5g per lb of bodyweight), moderate carb(0.5g to 1g per lb of bodyweight), low fat diet(0.25g per lb of bodyweight) seems to work best with Clen.

    Alternative to Steroids: Clenbuterol has mild steroid-like properties and can be used by non AS using bodybuilder to increase LBM as well as strength and muscle hardness. Diet: A moderate carb, high protein, moderate fat diet work well.

    Stimulant/Performance Enhancement: It can be used as a stimulant, but an ECA stack may be a better choice because of it's much shorter half-life. Diet: To take full advantage of the stimulatory effects of Clen, Carbs must be included in the diet. Keto diet do not work well in this case.

    Precautions: Is Clen for you?

    The same precautions that apply to Ephedrine must be applied to Clen, although some people find ECA stacks harsher than Clen. It should not be stacked with other CNS stimulants such as Ephedrine and Yohimbine. These combinations are unnecessary and potentially dangerous. Caffeine can be used in moderation before a workout for an extra kick, although its diuretic effects may shift electrolyte balance. Drink more water if you use Caffeine.

    What else do I need to know?

    Most users that report bad side effects and discontinue use are those who use high doses right at the start of the cycle. The worst side effects occur within the first 3-4 days of use.

    A first time user should not exceed 40mcg the first day.

    Example of a first cycle:

    Day1: 20mcg
    Day2: 40mcg
    Day3: 60mcg
    Day4: 80mcg
    Day5: 80mcg(Note: Increase the dose only when the side effects are tolerable)
    Day6-Day12: 100mcg
    Day13: 80mcg (Tapering is not necessary, but it helps some users get back to normal gradually)
    Day14: 60mcg
    Day15: off
    Day16: off
    Day 17: ECA/ NYC stack

    Example of a second cycle:

    Day1: 60mcg
    Day2: 80mcg
    Day3: 80mcg
    Day4: 100mcg
    Day5: 100mcg
    Day6-Day12: 120mcg
    Day13: 100mcg
    Day14: 80mcg
    Day15: off
    Day16: off
    Day 17: ECA/ NYC stack

    Do not take Clen Past 4pm and drink plenty of water: 1.5-2 gallons a day.

    All brands are not equal when it comes to Clen, different brands will yield different results.

    That about covers everything.

    I think I know a slight bit
    You dont have to take the ECA, but be leery of your ability to handle clen. Using too much will come in the form of a ridiculous heartbeat and sweats. Nausea may follow. Be very careful with this compound.
    How's your macro structure look? Do you track your calories? FitDay - Free Weight Loss and Diet Journal or All Things Food and Diet - FatSecret are great ways. Also, give me an idea of what your fat percentage is, as well as your bodyweight. I would also like your goals and any type of sport specific training work you. Are you participating in a sport?

    My clen is coming this week. I was going to do 2 weeks on. The first week being a tolerance assessment. 2nd week I'm gonna up the dosages to what I need. NEVER over 100mcgs. Weeks 3-4 I was gonna use an OTC thermo. fck it. And take benadryl before bed. (anti histamine/ beta 2 receptors) For the 2 off weeks. Then pick up Week 5 like right where I left off. Also is he using an AAS while hes on?

    Not a good idea in my opinion.
    Follow the clen schedule as much as possible. In all my clients who've chosen to use clen, I go by how badly the sides effect them. If they can tolerate a higher dose, so be it. However once the sweats and elevated heartbeat kick in, that's the cutoff.
    Hot Rox is a waste. Tell him to save his money, or use an ECA stack. If he's a natty competitor, I have a fat burner that passes IOC rules and can be used well. Details to come. If you're interested, look us up Facebook and become a fan.

    Benadryl is so-so. Better with keto.

    Actually, now that you mention it, I have. It was usually followed by heated sweats.

    Another interesting thing is that with the ECA stack, I was on it for quite a while and felt better tolerance all while the results in fat loss stayed the same as with the clen usage and no sides.

    B/c you are a female, you do not want to exceed 100mcg/day. I would actually recommend tapering up to only 80mcg to see how it effects you at that dose. You may not need to go any higher. Clen effects everyone differently, some people struggle with cardio while on it, others like me actually have more endurance while on it. You'll have to gauge your training appropriately. Run it 2 weeks on/2 weeks off. I don't do ECA stacks because I hate the way Ephedrine makes me feel. I use Jacked3D or another preworkout supp on my two weeks off. There is no need to take benedryl unless you are planning on running the clen for longer than 2 weeks with no time off. Two weeks off will clear your receptors...

    Also, take some time to read the side effects of clen. You want to be well informed of how this drug can effect your body. Some of them are not pretty. And if you have any history of heart problems stay away from this drug.
