What Is Stacking and Is It Right for You?

Are you in a cutting or bulking phase and looking for a way to increase your lean muscle mass growth?

Or do you want to find out an excellent way to gain strength and muscle hardness?

You probably know a few things about anabolic steroids, but you may want to consider steroid stacking, which is a complete performance-enhancing plan.

What is it, and how do you know if it’s right for you? Let’s find out below.

So, What Exactlystacking is Steroid Stacking?

As the name suggests, steroid stacking is the act of taking different kinds of steroids at the same time to maximize gains and performance level.

If you guessed that you couldn’t just mix a bunch of steroids in a stack just like you’d mix salads, you guessed right.

Reckless steroid stacking can be extremely dangerous. To find the proper way of stacking for you, you need to answer these questions:

  • Are you an adult male? Of course, a female can take anabolic steroids but must do it in a very careful way. Also, the choice of steroids for women is pretty limited.
  • Do you have an illness related to your heart, kidneys, and liver? The majority of anabolic steroids are hepatotoxic by nature, so if you have a condition, especially with your liver, don’t even consider stacking steroids. Your health must be your top priority.
  • What are your primary and secondary goals? Bulking? Strength? Performance level? Knowing them is important in picking the right steroids for your stack.
  • Have you ever taken anabolic steroids before? If you haven’t, you should start with small doses in your stacking. You should also put your fitness level as a factor in the equation.

Alright, now that you have answered these questions, let’s get on with our stacking 101.

Which Steroids to Stack?

There are 22 commonly used anabolic steroids for stacking. Note that it doesn’t mean you will use the 22 at the same time; it just means that they are the most commonly stacked.

We list them below along with their functions and scores so you can make informed decisions with your stacking.

The Most Important: Testosterone

The base of your steroid stacking must be testosterone.

Testosterone is the hormone responsible for building male reproductive tissues as well as for muscle building in your body.

The way steroids work is by reproducing testosterone in your body or pushing it to make more than the maximum level. Paradoxically, taking anabolic steroids will suppress the natural production of testosterone.

This is why you must make testosterone as your stacking foundation.

cutting stack by crazy bulkHow to Stack Them?

There are unlimited variations of steroid stacking.

As we’ve already seen, you should start with a testosterone and stack from there.

For a beginner, it would be wise to start with a variation of 2 – 3 steroids. Advanced people can take more (between 4 to 6), but everything depends on your goals.

Pick ones that will produce the most desired effects for you, based on their functions and scores.

Oral Stacking?

Orally administered steroids are highly popular right now among avid body builders and contest preppers.

Undeniably, it’s much easier to swallow than to inject. However, when you’re steroid stacking, you must limit to only one oral steroid during a cycle.

Also, keep in mind that you should not drink alcohol and take any other oral medication during the period of taking an oral steroid.

Is It for You?

The short answer is yes.

Whatever your goal is, or if you have worked hard and dieted strictly but cannot get out of a plateau, steroid stacking can provide a lot of benefits for you.

For your safety, you should make sure that your overall health is in excellent condition. Any suspicion about your organ health should be cleared out with a medical examination before you proceed.

You should start with small doses if you’re a beginner (in fitness and steroid taking) as you can always adjust if you see little to no result.

Take Away Lesson

Always practice steroid stacking with precaution.

Of course, doses will vary from one person to another since we don’t have the same fitness goals, and our bodies don’t work exactly the same way.

Try a stack and observe the effects in a few weeks. If you don’t find the results to be satisfactory, you can tweak your dose or change an ingredient.

Also, check the law in your state before adding steroids to your stack. You want to make sure what you’re using are legal.
