Is Dianabol really the best bulking oral steroid available? Arnie certainly loved it and those from that era dubbed it ‘The Breakfast of Champions’, but is the number one (oral) choice for those looking to add mass? I’m going to go out on a limb and say yes, it is, and I’ll explain why below. I know this will cause some fierce debate as some people hate Dianabol and some just don’t rate it, but I believe it is the best for several reasons.
Firstly, it does what it says on the tin. Dianabol will put mass on you and quickly. Granted, a lot will be water weight, but the scales will shoot up and that’s the aim of a bulk, right? The strength increases it will induce will will be off the scale and we all know what more strength equals, don’t we? More muscle. Period. But I know what you’re thinking – ‘there are other orals out there that do these two things even better than Dianabol, so why not choose one of those?’. To an extent this a valid point – orals such as Anadrol, Superdrol and Methyl-1-Testosterone probably will add more mass, muscle and strength that Dianabol BUT they are all much harsher on the body than Dianabol is. All three will be harder on the liver (particularly Superdrol and M1T – these two are scarily potent) and will no doubt cause other negative side effects to a great extent (increased blood pressure for example). Of course, it will depend on the individual, and there will be some who can’t tolerate Dianabol well at all, but all things even Dianabol is less harsh on the body and provides nearly as good gains as the other three steroids mentioned, so it’s a no-brainer, right?
I will admit it is hard to compare oral steroids as most people believe that oral-only cycles are worthless and should never be done, but I am of the opposite opinion. Oral only cycles can yield great gains so long as diet, training and rest are on point. Even though I’m not a fan of Superdrol nor M1T, a three week cycle of either one of those dosed at 20mg and 15mg respectively would result in huge gains, as would four weeks of Anadrol at 100mg per day. This is where Dianabol shows it’s greatness again as four weeks is the limit for those three anabolics, whereas Dianabol could be taken for up to six weeks without any issues.
