    Default How to Cycle the Most Common Types of Steroids. Oral and Injectable Anabolics LIST

    Types of Steroids

    There are numerous types of steroids; in-fact, there are hundreds of variations found in nature, but of course, for our purposes we’re only concerned with anabolic androgenic steroids. Within this group, again we have numerous types of steroids; numerous forms, variations and derivatives, and there are so many it can at times seem a little overwhelming. There are anabolic steroids that are strictly used for performance purposes, those used primarily in a therapeutic sense, and of course, those that crossover into both fields; the latter represents the majority. Then we can break down the types of steroids by specific hormone classification or even its form(s) of administration; as you can see, this can create a plethora of options to choose from. Of course, there are certain types of steroids almost no one will ever use; they have long since been pulled off the market, all markets, or they’re simply so rare they can only be found in very specific locations around the world. With all of this in mind, we want to look at the types of steroids you might actually use, ones that are actually a possibility for the majority. In doing so, we have broken down the various forms into several categories; we’ll start with all the actual possibilities, and from there we’ll separate them by common purposes of use as well as plenty of extra bonus information along the way. Without question, this will give you a good idea on how many types of anabolic androgenic steroids we truly have at our disposalMost Common Types of Steroids

    All-in-all, there are 32 common types of steroids; these 32 represent the anabolic androgenic steroids that can be used by anyone who supplements with such hormones for any reason; while others can be found, they are extremely rare. In some cases, within this 32 you’ll find the same steroidal hormone in play; however, you will find it is unique based on the ester(s) it has attached or in its particular form of administration. The ester(s) or form of administration does not change the hormones specific nature; for example, the testosterone hormone is found in numerous forms, more so than any other, but it’s still testosterone in any case, and its direct mode of action does not change on this basis. We’ll delve into a examples of this concept later on, but for now you simply need to be aware. In any case, we have listed the 32 most common types of steroids below; each one is listed by compound name, its popular trade name where applies, and of course, its mode of administration.

    Purpose of Use

    Within the 32 common types of steroids, we will find numerous purposes of use; in-fact, with these 32, while it’s unlikely anyone will ever use all of them, every last trait associated with anabolic steroidal supplementation can be obtained with even just a few. At any rate, most of the common steroids will carry a primary purpose; traits that specifically meet one primary purpose; however, they’ll often carry secondary characteristics that can serve another purpose quite well. Then we have the truly versatile steroids, and these are the types of steroids that can meet almost any purpose of steroidal supplementation; if not everyone, it will be pretty close. While this is true, we’ll find the mode of administration can affect the compounds versatility; in-fact, this will be more than apparent when looking at the numerous testosterone compounds. In any case, to gain a specific understand of a certain hormones total activity, you are encouraged to look at the steroid profiles here on steroid.com. In the meantime, in-order to provide you a generalized understanding we’ll briefly look at the common 32 regarding their purpose of use. Once again, we have listed the 32 most common types of steroids; this time we have listed them only by their most commonly associated name. Further, we have listed its purpose of use in a therapeutic and performance sense where such applies; this should give you a good idea where to start your educational process depending on the goals and desires you have in mind.

    Choosing the Right Types of Steroids

    As you can see, there are steroids available for every purpose of use, and as such, making a choice can become quite difficult; after all, sometimes we want it all but this isn’t a realistic approach. Anabolic androgenic steroids are not magical; the rules of nutrition do not go flying out the window just because we choose to supplement; however, the rules of nutrition do reach a level of enhancement. In any case, the types of steroids you will receive for therapeutic purposes will solely be based on your condition; you will have very little say in this matter if any at all. Then we have performance enhancement, the most common reason for steroidal supplementation, and this is where things take on a different tone. With the common types of steroids we have available, the possibilities are truly endless when it comes to the varying combinations we can put together, and of course, the goals that can be obtained. Regardless of this fact, you will find you are best served if you focus on one of three goals at a time; bulking, cutting or enhancing athletic performance. If you try to do two or more at a time, especially if you try to add mass while trying to cut, a virtual impossibility at any significant level, you’re going to find it an extremely frustrating process. Even so, there’s good news; regardless of your goal, if it’s bulking you’ll be able to add more lean mass with less fat accumulation, and if you’re trying to cut you’ll be able to lose more body-fat with less muscle tissue loss that often accompanies hard dieting. As bulking and cutting represent the two primary reasons most people supplement, you will find choosing steroids that promote these ends to be your best bet, but you must ensure you are eating correctly to promote this end. If you can do this, and there’s no reason you can’t you’ll find the numerous types of steroids listed above can serve you in ways that are unimaginable.

    quality post, Presser, u the man!!! this is like a cheat sheet lol, great info.
    There is an idea of who I am: some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me; only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel my flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable, I simply am not there.
