    Clen only cycle for fat loss


    I'm 30 yrs, 185 lbs and abt 14 % bf.. I was planning on running a clen only cycle to lose the excess fat... I was hoping someone would advice me on cycle.. The tablets I have are 40mg ones...

    I run a clean diet... And follow intermittent Fasting method....

    Sure, use clen. Clen is anti-catabolic so no real need to worry about burning muscle for fuel. Dose as you see fit, you'll start low, say 20 or 40mcg to start, then build up to your tolerance level within the first week. Run 2 weeks, then stop for 2 weeks; repeat. You can buy ketotifen which would allow you to run clen non-stop. 1ml ketotifen daily.

    So if I was to run it two week on two week off do I still need to get ketotifen??? Also when I build upto my tolerance do I maintain at that level till the end of the two week period????

    No, i said you can buy ketotifen and run non-stop or you can run 2 weeks on 2 weeks off. Yes you maintain your max dosage until you stop. Most likely the second 2 weeks you run you will start higher and reach your max dosage much quicker. My recommendation is that you split your doses during the day. I don't care for the tabs as it's harder to micro dose, some people start out at 20mcg daily, split dose. The is basically not possible with a 40mcg tab. Take half a tab day 1 to assess tolerance. Next day maybe take 1 tab split dose.

    I've never had a cramp off Clen, and i've run 200mcg a day consistantly. If you're having dehydration issues then yes, taurine and potassium and electrolytes and minerals are your friend.

    Clen will not shield your muscles from catabolism if you are calorie restricted and doing cardio -- there is a definite risk in that regard. Cutting BF Naturally is very difficult if you do not have elite genetics and also maintained a low BF% to begin with.

    Hormonal assistance would help, but if you do not go that route just be warned.

    Perhaps something like EndoAMP Max could help fight off cortisol via - phosphatidyl serine content. Something to consider.

    He never said he was going hypocaloric. Clen is anti catabolic for normal purposes.

    Weird, both that you and your friends get cramps from clen, and such a low dose of Taurine would work. Taurine, to have a noticeable effect on water circulation, needs to be dosed upwards of 6g. That's roughly the studied dose.

    You should be drinking a lot of water regardless, drinking 1/2 to 1 gallon of water a day is good for you. You'll probably sweat while on clen, so keeping hydrated is even more important than normal. You don't necessarily have to use Taurine, just keep hydrated. If you do get cramping, pick up some taurine and use 6g or so a day.

    My main goal is to get bigger. But I may look into Clen also to get leaner and stay lean. I like the idea and I think it would help cut the last bit of fat I am trying to get rid of.

    So is mine... Getting big is of course the ultimate target.... But my first plan is to strip that fat away... Once I get that target done then I'll start the getting bigger plan...

    Just food for thought: It's harder to maintain being lean while bulking than it is to simply bulk then cut.

    Isn't it easier to do a cut if the bulk didn't really add too much fat... I mean keep the body at around 12-14%... Plus I think you get a better idea of what areas to really concentrate on when u lean out first before u do a bulk... I mite be wrong... Still kind of a newbie...

    Well, think of it this way. If you're 20% bf, it's easy to cut. If you're 10% it's harder to get sub 10. The lower the bodyfat, the harder it is to lose bodyfat much less maintain low fat. It's the reason competitors don't typically stay low bf in the offseason. It's the reason i don't go sub 10% until right before a physique show. It's simply easier to gain the weight you need to, and then spend some time cutting. Even at 14 or so percent you'll be able to see which bodyparts are lagging.

    Use the search function, tons of threads on clen. What you get out of it is what you put in to it. If you eat 1k above maintenance and take clen, you'll think it's worthless. If you combine with diet and exercise, fat loss will be magnified.

    I See your point... I guess it all starts with each ones priority... I am currently on abt 14% but wanna get down to around 10% before I go on a bulk...

    Sure, if that's what you want to do then do it. My 2 cents are simply that you're doing it the harder way, but that's how you learn.

    I would love to do a bulk at 14%... But I just seem to be putting on excess fat in all the wrong places... And I eat clean... And weight and count everything... Slow bulking is the only thing that works for me...
