So, what are the best steroids to get lean?
Aka cut…sliced to the bone…or ripped to shreds.
Okay, not everyone will want to get so lean they can see every muscle striation from head to toe, but many do want to reduce their body fat % to the point where they can increase their muscle tone or see their six pack abs (come beach season).
There's a certain group of steroids which are hugely effective at reducing body fat, which are known as cutting steroids.
The key to looking lean AND muscular/athletic is to burn fat and build muscle.
- If you burn fat and lose muscle – you'll just look skinny.
- And if you build muscle but fail to lose fat – you'll just look bigger at the same body fat percentage.
Cutting steroids can help you burn fat and build muscle at the same time (depending on which ones you take).
Here's a list of the best cutting steroids, used by many to get lean:
Winstrol is one of the best cutting steroids for building muscle. You'll see a noticeable increase in muscle size when taking this compound, but it's not anabolic enough to take when bulking.
Winny's fat burning effects are pretty strong, enabling you to burn fat at a quick rate (when your diet is on point). Winstrol will also help you look dry and peeled, due to it flushing water out of the body.
This dry look is similar to how bodybuilders look on stage, after spending the previous week trying to flush out as much water as possible – trying to increase muscle definition.
Testosterone is generally used during bulking cycles, because it's capable of producing massive strength and size gains. However, it is an effective cutting steroid too because it does burn fat.
So, generally people will take test if they want to preserve their muscle when cutting, or even add some size. However, don't expect the same muscle gains on test when on lower calories, compared to if you were to eat more food and combine it with other powerful bulking steroids.
Trenbolone is a similar steroid to test, because it can also be used for bulking or cutting; due to it's muscle-building and fat-burning properties.
Anavar is one of the best steroids for burning fat and getting lean.
You probably won't build any muscle on anavar, but your strength is likely to increase. So if you usually experience a loss in strength when cutting; anavar can prevent this.
Also people who are prone to looking depleted on a cut will benefit from anavar because it will make a person look very full. This is because it takes water outside of the muscle cell and sends it inside the muscle, giving you a more round/pumped look.
Anavar (like winstrol) is a diuretic compound, making you look extra ripped during your cut.
Clenbuterol has 1 simple design – to burn fat.
Those who are lean and take clen will get RIPPED.
It has powerful stimulative properties, kickstarting your metabolism and helping you burn more calories at rest. Clen almost guarantees fat loss, unless you eat like a pig on it.
Taking clen is like adding 30 minutes of cardio into your daily routine. It encourages fat loss through extra calorie expenditure.
Some bodybuilders implement clenbuterol 4-8 weeks before a competition to help them come in more shredded than rival competitors. Hollywood actors like Hugh Jackman (Wolverine) have also been linked with taking clen.
The 4 best steroids to get lean/cut are:
Taking all 4 of these cutting steroids at the same time will help burn MORE fat and build MORE muscle when dieting. Stacking these compounds together is recommended for those who have a significant amount of fat to lose.
If you can already start to see your abdominals coming through, you may only need to take winstrol or anavar to help you look awesome.
All of the fat loss you'll experience on these steroids will mostly be permanent. The only temporary effect is the water loss you'll experience when taking winstrol and anavar. Once your cycle finishes you'll gain this water back.
Other steroids that can accelerate fat burning that aren't included in this list are:
- Human Growth Hormone
Tren just misses out because it's incredible at building muscle, which will be blunted to a degree if you use it for cutting purposes.
And if you can afford it, HGH would be a good addition to the 4 steroids already mentioned, because it's a proven fat burner (just not as potent as the ones mentioned).
HGH's results might not be as good as anavar's for melting fat, but your body fat percentage will decrease.
