For most, a Dbol cycle will only represent a small portion of a larger total cycle. For example, the most common point of use is to kick off a new off-season phase of growth. In this case, you would supplement with Dianabol for approximately six weeks along with your chosen steroids mentioned from the base section above. Once this six week period is over, your total cycle would continue without Dbol, but the base items would continue. This is the most common and popular Dbol cycle of all, but it's not the only one that's beneficial. Often forgotten, Dianabol is one of the best mid-cycle steroids we have; we're talking about mid-cycle use that aids us in breaking through a plateau; specifically, plateau busting. When you reach a sticking point, and you will, you'll need to provide some type of change to your diet, training or supplementation plan, maybe all three, and Dbol can be the change you need. It should be noted; if you used this steroid as a kick starter, you will need at minimum six weeks before you implement it again, and this means plateau busting is normally only going to be undertaken by hardcore advanced steroid users who are running extremely long and extensive cycles.
For most men an Anavar cycle will be best served for the cutting process or dieting phase; the phase in-which an individual is looking for a ripped physique. This is not a steroid that will serve this purpose to as strong a degree as Trenbolone or even Equipoise nor will it have the same efficiency as Winstrol and many other DHT steroids such as Masteron but it can have a positive effect that is present in a mild form. An Anavar cycle during a cutting diet phase can greatly aid in preserving lean tissue while on a calorie restricted diet as well as increase total metabolic activity; further, when lean enough it can give a physique a bit of a harder appearance. Most men who supplement with Oxandrolone for this purpose will find 50mg per day to generally be a good starting point with 80mg per day being generally safe. Yes, you can take more but much past the 100mg per day range is not going to do a lot more for you; further, as this steroid can cost at least $2 per 10mg tab and often higher an Anavar cycle for a man can get very expensive.
