    First time Clen user


    I'm about to start my first cycle of Clen i've read a great number of articles on cycles. I would like to know if using Albuterol is comparable? And if anyone who's done a cycle has personal pointers I'd greatly appreciate your time in helping me

    Albuterol isn't even similar. Best recommendation is to make sure you have your choice of high electrolyte drink handy whether its gatorade, powerade, poseidon, etc. Next best is to start as slowly as you can, and raise your dose only as your sides disappear, generally that means starting at 20mcg and going up another 20mcg every 2 days the first time you use it. Some people feel that sides are somewhat lower if you split the dose, its difficult to say for sure. Do a 2 week cycle the first time, take 2 weeks off, then you can do it again. 2nd time you can start at 40 if the 20 didn't bother you, and also go up a little faster. But at any point where you get noticeable jitteryness and bad cramping, just stay at that dose until it disappears (or go down some first)

    How important would you say that keeping track of my temp bi-daily is? I've heard it's necessary and others say not to mess with all that your first time

    i'd just check it waking really, and not go over 120mcg your first time. Odds are you won't be able to anyhow, first time sides are much worse than later it seems.

    I'm sitting at about 16% and trying to drop into low single digits. Any suggestions of a stack with clen or cardio routine that could help??

    low carb, as much cardio as you can stand, probably moderate intensity till you get the feel for how clen affects you crampwise

    You will find the taurine beneficial when you are laying in bed at night and you get a clen cramp in your foot and little toe. You will never again question its worth..lol

    LOL its one of those inevitable things with clen. You get cramps at the worst times and there is nothing you can do but suffer through it. Anything that lessens those is good in my book!

    Albuterol is comparable. Basically the same properties. We implement it at our clinic.

    The dosage in inhalers is nothing compared to oral administration.

    Ive run both and have converted to alb only. The clen sides are too much for the difference which is small IME.

    Id take the taurine anytime you are on clen though, dont wait for the cramps.

    I've used Albuterol religiously with a good diet+training program, other than allowing for better hits and breathing, it did nothing for fat loss except the first couple of days, ran it for 35? days.

    The EC stack is well studied and very effective, I'm on it now, rapid fat loss and great energy.

    Clen, I would not use, while the studies about heart cell death are not conclusive, I'm not gonna use something unless I'm 100% comfortable with it.

    You will NEED Taurine 3-5gs/day as Clen depletes it, increase your minerals too, Calcium, Zinc, Magnesium, Potassium and sodium is never hard to get.

    ZMA at night, lite salt and bone meal powder or a calcium tablet2 will work fine, NOW foods make 1g Taurine (double strength) caps for a low price.

    Run benadryl for 7 days, every 3rd week (average) when temperature drops, start using it, that's why it's important to log this stuff for reference, you can use Clen for 12 weeks if you need to by following that protocol.

    Clen is effective with the right diet. But it depends on how much and what kind of cardio you do. For someone that only does HIIT cardio or needs to do quite a bit of cardio, then ephedra is better or you. Cln can raise the heartrate to the point that it hinders training if you dose it close.

    how did you dose the albuterol? I found it still not as effective as clen dosed at 24mg/day split at 3 8mg doses. and its moderately expensive to run at that dose

    I agree its not 100% as effective, but as i mentioned the sides just arent worth it IMHO.

    I usually go for 16mg a day in 4x4mg doses. I will often also just take 4mg pre WO when im not "on" albuterol just for a little kickstart. I also regularly take yohimbine as well.

    My diet/training has come a long way since i used clen, so it very well may be much more effective but i know that i dont have random cramps and i do have more peace of mind about it.

    I can definitely see that, 4 or even 8mg of albuterol preworkout gives a nice bump, but it doesn't seem to last long enough to be as effective. I dont get particularly bad sides from clen, so long as I ramp up responsibly

    Yea well im also impatient and its nice to be able to just jump into the alb.

    Additionally although im new here and have no idea what your physical condition is like, its close to 100% likely that i have more bodyfat than you, which may create a different perception of the effectiveness.

    Ya dude definitely get some taurine!! I had chronic cramping in both of my calves while on clen even drinking 3-4 powerades a day to not fix. Taurine is too cheap to skimp out of for sure!! IMO I would say get your body fat down a little bit more before using clen.

    I'm planning on starting my first clen cycle during PCT in a week or two and your quote concerns me. I generally do very fast pace workouts with only 60-120 seconds in b/t sets. If I hit two bodyparts (i.e. shoulders and bi's) I will superset and have even less rest in b/t sets. Then I usually do 20 minutes of cardio after my weight training.

    I train with one scoop of noxplode or superpump and my heart rate gets going pretty well. Will clen conflict with my method of training? I hate to discontinue the superpump.

    Yeah, I've read conflicting opinions on running it during pct. One source said that you could run it at lower dose during pct for the anabolic properties of the compound (not full cutting doseage).

    ugh, I wouldnt. The anticatabolic properties were only ever shown as existing in burn victim rats.... Or in heart patients at 720mcg/day

    yes 720... they reached that dose after months, slowly titrating up I think it was by 20mcg a week

    Yeah, it gives me great mental focus though.....not to mention the arginine and creatine pumps.

    I wonder if anybody makes a "stimulant-free" superpump or noxplode.

    I read something similar as well.....that clen doesn't have anti-catabolic properties, but does posess anabolic/muscle preserving properties. I should probably play it safe and use it another time though.

    I'd kind of like to use it during my next cycle to completely rip out, but am afraid that would be too much stress on the heart. (since the AS increase BP and Cholesterol, and Clen raises BP too.) Sounds like trouble to me.

    that like many other things is personal rather than universal I can say that i have been at 200mcg of clen having ramped up over 10 days or so, and still had a 130/68 blood pressure, and a resting heart rate in the 60s, while on cycle...

    part of it comes from me having been a total lardass between 20-39. my heart was used to pumping blood thru 40-50 more pounds of fat, so its pretty relaxed now
