This one is so hard for me to do. I’m being serious, to only pick 10 steroids and class them as the top 10 steroids? Well to start with, I am NOT going to include peptides or hormones like Human growth hormone, Insulin growth factor 1 or GHRP-2 etc. These are not steroids, so despite how powerful and effective they are, I’ll leave them out of this article for this reason. Instead, we’ll focus on anabolic steroids and I’ll do my best to name the Top 10 steroids.
Why do I list Anadrol at number 10? Due to it’s harsh side effects, if it’s side effects were lower I’d be sure to put this drug in my top 3 for how effective it is! Unfortunately it is not for everyone and only the advanced bodybuilder can really appreciate and treat this drug with the respect it deserves.
Anadrol can give you gains of up to 2lbs PER DAY, yes, you heard me right, 2lbs of weight gains per day! Some of this is water of course, but a lot of it is muscle. It is an incredible drug that is suitable only for the more advanced bodybuilder.
T-bol also known as turanabol is a great steroid for either bulking or cutting. While it will not give the dramatic muscle gains Dianabol will. It will give GREAT lean muscle gains, ideal for a figure model or an athlete who competes in weight classes but needs to generate as much strength as possible in a quick time. Excellent to be stacked with testosterone and other anabolic steroids! Another bonus is it can actually INCREASE the effectiveness of other anabolic steroids! Not bad!
Equipoise is a great steroid. I’ve noticed that it doesn’t get the attention it deserves. It is a GREAT mass builder, despite the fact it is not known as a “bulking steroid” it’s ability to add lean muscle mass is quite frankly outstanding and if you talk to any bodybuilder who has used this drug for a cutting cycle they’ll mention the great increases in muscle mass seen from it.
In fact I know some guys who used this over deca in a BULKING cycle after seeing such great results from it.
It stacks perfect with testosterone, of course!
Athletes taking Equipoise often report a slow and constant buildup of quality muscle, and certainly this has been my experience with the drug. I would speculate that this slow buildup of muscle is due to the very long ester attached to the Boldenone; Undeclynate is a longer ester than the decanoate ester by one carbon. Thus, we could expect the accumulation of muscle from Equipoise to actually occur at a slightly slower rate than that found with Deca (nandrolone decanoate). This leads me to advise that if you are considering the use of Equipoise, you should consider using it for no less than 12 weeks. Equipoise, like Deca, is also detectable in your system for a long time (although it is substantially less than Deca’s detection time).
Yes, dianabol. A lot would rank it higher, I however, do not. I’ll explain why, while I’m a HUGE fan of Dianabol, it can not be used in CUTTING cycles. Well scrap that, some argue it can and obviously it can, but there are FAR more effective anabolic steroids out there for this role.
How does it hold up on a bulking cycle? On a lean bulking cycle not too good as you’ll hold some water. On a mega mass bulk it’s fantastic, it’ll give you tons of strength and muscle will increase weekly.
MG for MG it’s actually the most powerful steroid out there for building mass.
Overall I rate this highly but there’s still more “essential steroids out there” so for this reason it comes in at number 7
Masteron is a steroid that is commonly over looked usually for the more popular steroid winstrol. However Masteron has been shown to do almost everything winstrol does + more and has nowhere near the side effects. For example while winstrol can make your bones weaker and cause a dryness in the bones leading to joint issues and pain, Masteron does NOT do this.
I suppose the fear of masteron comes from its one big side effect: it can make you go bald.
Yes, it is from DHT, which if you know anything about anything you will know can have some pretty harsh side effects including Baldness.
Sustanon, my least favourite of all the testosterone compounds out there. While some love this drug, I find it lacks compared to the quality of a good solid testosterone product basically it is a mixture of the following anabolics
Testosterone Acetate, 30 mg of Testosterone Propionate, 60 mg of Testosterone Phenyl propionate, 60mg of Testosterone Isocaproate, and 100mg Testosterone Decanoate.
Each of these esters has a different time release pattern in the blood, therefore helping maintain very consistent blood levels of the hormone with frequent injections. Bodybuilders choosing to use GP Sust 270 will generally prefer a dosage pattern of three times a week (example: Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday).
Again I find doing a simple testosterone enthanate cycle to be MUCH more effective than this. It leads to me having to inject less and giving me extremely high quality gains, which I prefer.
Obviously it is up to you and having sustanon over no testosterone is much better. I just personally prefer the others over it.
Primobolan one of the greatest steroids currently available on the market today. Unfortunately it’s price makes it a hard one to justify. It was a favourite of good old Arnold who used to use this drug every day. In fact it was said he used it for a full THREE YEARS none stop before! Many attribute Arnold’s use of this drug to his ability to keep such a small waist and aesthetic looking physique. It’s ability to burn fat and increase the rate at which other anabolic steroids perform. I.e. it slows down the release or even blunts any conversion to estrogen while still allowing all the anabolic side effects that you WANT to happen.
Deca, one of my personal favorites! Yes, it can cause the dreaded deca dick if you don’t have testosterone included in your cycle. But if you do, well I can guarantee you will find it hard to find anything that can build muscle at a more rapid and fast pace than deca can.
Its healing ability and its ability to be used as a pain killer also make this drug a very worthwhile one.
Another positive aspect of this anabolic steroid is the way it doesn’t convert to estrogen leading to a big build-up of muscle mass.
Why have I ranked anavar this highly? Because not only can it be used as a bulking or a cutting steroid, it mixes perfect with almost any other steroid.
It has great arthritic healing abilities; I’ve seen individuals use it for numerous health benefits.
It rapidly improves strength and it actually has the ability to use fat cells for energy and burn fat.
Overall it is one of the most diverse and best anabolic steroids you can find on the market
And I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Finally for number 1!
Number 1 Testosterone
Which Testosterone I hear you asking? Honestly it doesn’t really make much difference. Why is this number 1? Because if you are a first time user what steroid am I going to recommend to you 99 times out of 100? Testosterone. If you are a long term user what steroid will always be in your cycle 99 times out of 100? Testosterone!
Testosterone is the staple of any steroid cycle and you can understand why. I can’t praise this anabolic steroid enough. No one wants low T levels now do they?
