Clenbuterols are sympathomimetic amine; this class of drugs are designed to mimic the effects of the sympathetic nervous system and generally used to treat cardiovascular conditions as well as a few other issues but not as typical. However, as many users of performance enhancers know Clenbuterol serves a very important purpose for them and it is that of fat-loss
Structurally Clenbuterol is very similar to Epinephrine but it is the thermogenic qualities it possesses that we are interested in here. Clenbuterol is a very powerful thermogenic meaning it greatly increases the rate in-which the body metabolizes fat. It performs this process in short by stimulating the beta-2 receptors in the body.
When we use Clenbuterol one of the first things you may notice is an increase in body temperature; this is not uncommon for any thermogenic. Further and quite common is a very jittery feeling or "the shakes." Clenbuterol can act as a stimulant and the effects on the initial end can be very dramatic; it is not uncommon for your hands to be very shaky when you start Clenbuterol use. However, this will pass but it passes as the body becomes accustomed to the drug. Like many drugs our bodies will become use to it and the effects will dwindle.
Keeping Clenbuterol Working
As stated, your body becomes very accustomed to the drug fairly quickly and there are several schools of thought on how best to combat this problem. Obviously, if you're using Clenbuterol to aid in burning fat you don't want the benefits to cease but how do you get around the fact that the benefits will in-fact cease? One method most common among many athletes is a two (2) week on two (2) week off approach. The idea is simple, use Clenbuterol for two weeks, as your body becomes accustomed discontinue use and then pick up again after the body has gotten use to the drug not being there; pretty simply really. However, during the two week off period we are without the benefit of fat-loss Clenbuterol can bring and this is a problem for many. Another method becoming more popular is using Clenbuterol throughout the entire diet but regulating the dose in a manner that gradually increases as the diet progresses. By administering the drug in this fashion we do not allow our bodies to become accustomed to the dose.
As with all performance enhancing drugs you are advised to consult with your doctor before beginning use to ensure you are healthy enough for use. Clenbuterol can be a little harsh on the heart and if you have a heart condition you are strongly urged to stay away from this powerful drug.
