Alphabolin (Methenolone Enanthate) by Alpha Pharma is one of the few anabolic steroids that are available in both oral and injectable forms. While Alphabolin is no longer the hugely popular anabolic steroid it once was, it still has a big following amongst bodybuilding enthusiasts across the globe, including famous bodybuilders such as Arnold Schwarzenegger (who was known to use it as one of his main steroids early in his bodybuilding career).
This steroid is, nonetheless, one of the safest steroids available today. It has literally no side effects. But when it comes to steroids for reducing water retention and increasing lean muscle mass, Masteron is usually the most preferred choice. This is simply because it’s easier to find and is less prone to counterfeiting compared to Alphabolin.
Alphabolin and Masteron perform almost the same functions, but they do have a number of characteristics which distinguish them from one another. First, Alphabolin is counterfeited more frequently, especially in the form of oral tablets. Because Alphabolin is extremely mild, it works great for cutting steroids cycles as well as for female users. Alphabolin also has little or no side effects, and is very easy to control when used responsibly.
Alphabolin Cycle Dosage
Alphabolin dose of 400mg a week has been shown to provide decent gains, but higher doses are common, with many claiming 600-800mg a week will provide a much better yield in muscle size whilst not causing too much in terms of side effects. As we rise the dose we can expect the androgenic side effects to become more pronounced, so its down to the user to see what dose provides fruitful when weighing up the side effects to net positive gains.
Alphabolin is often stacked with other steroids to provide more pleasing results to the user. During a cutting cycle the product could be stacked with a non-aromatising androgen to aid muscle hardness whilst keeping a very defined look with little water retention. Others may find primobolan a nice compound to add to their usual Testosterone course to add to the anabolic nature of the cycle, whilst not adding too much to side effects. This may be useful for those who have found their tolerance dosage with Testosterone but wish to add another compound to their stack to aid gains.
