These are the Steroids Female Bodybuilders Use.
Female bodybuilders and fitness models have been using steroids to develop their physiques, both at the amateur and professional levels for a very long time. A lot of women tend to use steroids for cutting because they help them lose body fat while maintaining lean muscle.
Those who want to improve the look of their body or enter a competition have to lower their body fat to extreme levels while maintaining lean muscle – this is known as cutting.
Cutting can be a very difficult process because it can negatively impact the person in many different ways.
When someone undergoes a cutting cycle, they will most likely suffer from low energy, lack of motivation, delayed recovery, muscle loss, etc. For this reason, fitness models will typically use a combination of several cutting steroids to reach their goals in a faster and more effective manner.
Although some women combine cutting steroids with ones created for gaining muscle (bulking), that’s an entirely different subject called “stacking”.
Many of these steroids are often considered female-friendly but this is not true, anabolic steroids are derivatives of the male hormone testosterone, this means that they may cause symptoms of virilization.
What is virilization?
This is a process that happens from women who take anabolic steroids, symptoms of virilization are when women begin to experience man like traits.
Some of the symptoms include:
- Deepening of the voice
- Excess body hair
- Male pattern baldness
- Enlarge clitoris
- Oily skin
Some of the symptoms may only be temporary but things like a deeper voice and clitoral enlargement in some women may not be reversible.
In this article, I’m going to talk about the most popular cutting steroids used by women to burn body fat and achieve a lean and muscular body.
Winstrol –also known as Stanozolol 1 is a synthetic steroid drug often used by athletes and is known as one of the most popular cutting steroids, ever. It’s available in both oral and injectable forms.
Derived from dihydrotestosterone, Winstrol is popularly used to achieve a dry, shredded, and solid look. It also has a distinct ability to increase protein synthesis and nitrogen retention.
It’s worth noting that Winstrol won’t help the athlete burn fat or enhance their performance; meaning that it should only be used to put the finishing touches on a physique.
Winstrol is highly toxic to the liver, can raise the body’s cholesterol, and can cause baldness. Other side effects include acne, deepening of the voice (in women), and clitoral enlargement.
Anavar –scientifically known as Oxandrolone is one of the milder anabolic steroid used for cutting. Even though Anavar doesn’t actually burn body fat, it contains strong muscle-preserving properties that can be highly beneficial while cutting.
Female bodybuilders and strength athletes also use it to enhance their performance and increase their overall strength and explosiveness. Anavar doesn’t aromatize or convert to DHT; this means that hair loss and virilizing side effects will be rare. In men, it can potentially lower testosterone.
Primobolan –also known as Methenolone- is a relatively mild steroid that can be administered orally or in injectable form. Primobolan won’t build significant amounts of muscle which is why some women like to use it, plus it’s quite effective at burning fat- this because it can bind itself to the androgen receptors in the body.
This means that Primobolan is a perfect anabolic compound for cutting.
Primobolan does not convert to estrogen, it’s not very toxic to the organs, and it does not promote virilization; as long as it’s not used in high doses.
I would first like to point out that Clenbuterol is not a steroid, it is often confused as one because it is used by women to burn body fat, in fact, it has been used by famous celebrities to lose weight fast.
Clenbuterol is a bronchodilator used to treat asthma patients but it has found its way into the bodybuilding community, unfortunately, it can have side effects that can be pretty harsh, some of them include rapid heartbeat, palpitations, and cold sweats.
Women who can tolerate Clenbuterol can burn body fat quickly due to its effect on speeding up your body's metabolism.
I dont condone steroid use at all, I used them briefly and did not like the side effects they caused, I find that it's better to focus more on diet and training than it is to take steroids, however, I do believe women should be aware of what's available.
When my friends ask me what I take I always recommend taking a legal steroid, they offer similar benefits without the side effects. This is something that should be considered because like it or not anabolic steroids have more pronounced side effects on women than they do with men.
In short, these are the best steroids for cutting that fitness model and female bodybuilders commonly use to reach impressive levels of conditioning. As powerful as these anabolic compounds are, they are illegal and extremely dangerous.
It’s worth noting that as potent as these cutting steroids are, they will not work unless the athlete undergoes a strict training and diet plan. Ultimately, steroids are not worth the risk; especially considering that similar results can always be achieved naturally.
