Personal Trainers, Women and Steroids
With the increased popularity and acceptance of Anabolic
Steroids in the United States and elsewhere, as personal
trainers it is incumbent upon us to become more educated
with respect to their proper usage in bodybuilding and
My observation as a personal trainer is that they have
become so widespread that to ignore continuing education in
this area is the equivalent to having one's head in the sand
as a professional trainer. Anabolic Steroids are here to
Indeed, my conservative estimate is that at any given time
probably 30% of my clients admit to being on a cycle or
between cycles, and upon questioning I have found that many
did not cycle on or off properly.
Although I will not provide AS to my clients (this is still
a felony in the US), I will provide what I have learned in
the way of recent information about beneficial usage of AS
through reading and through personal trial and error.
More and more of my clients are women and it is exciting to
see the field of bodybuilding becoming so diversified with
gender. I see more and more women doing intermediate and
advanced training routines in the gym.
Along with these increased numbers, there has been an
increase in the number of women who want to bridge their
genetic gap with proper use of AS. Unfortunately, compared
to the amount of trials and studies on men, literature and
published cycles for women is sparse.
In the last 3 years I have been lucky to have been able to
train several women who came to me with expressed interest
in using AS.
In several cases they came to me with a supply of stack that
would grow hair on a man let alone on a woman. They were
trying to base their decisions on limited information that
they derived from gym-talk and a little bit of literature,
and I was able to dissuade them by showing them better
One lady had high blood pressure as a pre-existing medical
condition, but possessed and wanted to begin using Dianabol
at 20mg/day as well as 100mg of enathate/week. As a matter
of course, I do a pre-screening medical interview with all
my clients to keep a log of medical issues, last doctor's
I remembered that she had been on blood pressure medication
and explained to her the side effects of androgenic AS, as
opposed to the milder or non-existent side-effects of the
The look on her face said it all as I could see that she
knew that the androgenic could have been a death sentence
for her with her medical issues. Being approachable and
knowledgeable as a trainer is the best service that I can
provide for my clients.
Having said all that, I will now describe for the lady
readers a very successful cycle which a good friend of mine
She asked me to personal train her and to provide her with
any and all information that I had about a fat-cutting,
mildly anabolic cycle.
She is very feminine and wanted to retain that while
simultaneously adding some quality gains of muscle with good
definition.She has a medium build and had been bodybuilding
for about 5 years.
Also, she is 33 years old. I did a routine medical screening
with her and she was able to provide the results of her most
recent physical which included blood levels of cholesterol
and hepatic enzymes.
Everything was within the normal range, and there was no
history of blood pressure, kidney, or liver problems. I gave
her a rundown on the various problems that can possibly be
associated with AS use for women and in general, and told
her to contemplate what it was that she wanted to do.
She called me two days later and we set up our first
First, we did a body fat analysis which rendered results of
21%. Her bodyweight was 127lbs at 5'4" Her chief complaint
was the lingering fat deposits around her buttocks, thighs,
and tricep area which seemed to defy cardio and a clean
I could tell that her gains in muscle had been respectable
during her 5 years of bodybuilding, so that was not going to
be a major concern. She was not a hard-gainer. First we
looked at her diet to see just how clean it was. She had
done her research and was eating a good balance of proteins,
carbs, and fats.
She was a little heavy on the carbs and admitted to
indulging in the late night carbs about three nights/week,
so we agreed to begin with disciplining that area first. I
also increased her protein to compensate for the lost carbs.
Next, we looked at her training routine and changed it from
the 10-12 rep routines that she was doing.
Instead, I adjusted it to sets of higher reps and lower
weight where she now began doing sets of three for each
exercise with the sets consisting of 15reps/12reps/10reps.
Also, she was doing 20mins of cardio three days week. I
adjusted this to 45mins four days/week.
She would also strength-train 4 days/week. Two of the cardio
and resistance-training days would overlap giving her 6 days
in the gym.
She was allowed one cheat day per week but not with
We decided on a 8 week training program and she did the
following in the way of supplementation.
- Week One
- Week Two
- Week Three
- Week Four
- Week Five
- Week Six
- Week Seven
- Week Eight
The rationale for the above AS cycle is as follows:
1) 100mg Deca Durabolin for eight weeks was intended to be
a steady and solid mass builder, but dosed for subtle and
2) 25mg of Proviron per day for the first four weeks was
intended to provide a mild androgenic; to potentiate the
activity of the other steroidal compounds being added in by
displacing them into the bloodstream; and, to promote a
change in the ratio of androgen vs estrogen in the female
composition allowing for greater solid gains, and to promote
the fat-burning process.
Beyond four weeks of usage is not advised for women due to
the strong androgenic buildup which could occur, and which
could trigger virilization. Also, 25mg is the maximum
recommended dose per day for a feminine cycle for the same
3) 10mg of Nolvadex per day in conjunction with the
Proviron is a powerful tool in continuing to rev up the fat-
burning and to begin to tackle the trouble areas such as the
hips, thighs, etc.
4) Winstrol was added in the fourth week as she prepared to
remove the Proviron from the lineup. She did not want too
much androgenic/anabolic activity at once for fear of side
effects. Winny tabs were used due to the difficulty of
administering small enough feminine doses via injection.
5) Clenbuterol was added in the sixth week as she prepared
to remove the Winstrol from her cycle. As there is differing
opinions as to the anabolic effects of Clenbuterol, this
supplement was added primarily as a fat-burner and the daily
dose of 100mcg was split into morning and afternoon.
Most studies show that Clen loses much of its effect after
21days, hence, this was added in for basically the last 3
weeks of her anabolics.
In the case of my client, her results were very noticeable,
yet not dramatic, nor masculine.
Her bodyweight went to 116lbs of very lean and sculpted
look. Her quads become very pronounced, as did her shoulders
and rhomboids. Her body fat was at 12% at finish which was a
drop of 9% body fat.
Doing the math, one can see that she lost about 10.5 pounds
of fat and gained 2.5 pounds of muscle. Very respectable
results for an 8 week feminine cycle. No virilization
occurred and two weeks after the above cycle she had lost an
additional one pound.
Her continued cardio and clean eating warded off any rebound
from stopping the clenbuterol.
Also, as the Deca is known to remain very anabolic in the
system for about 17 days, she was able to continue to
appreciate some notable changes in physique one month later.
In sharing this experience, it is my hope that other female
bodybuilders who are up and coming in the realm of AS will
see the importance of doing extensive homework, buying
quality gear, and seeking the guidance of a personal trainer
for more efficient training.
The only way to have symmetry in your body is to have it in
the way of knowledge, training, and supplementation.
