For most, a Dbol cycle will only represent a small portion of a larger total cycle. For example, the most common point of use is to kick off a new off-season phase of growth. In this case, you would supplement with Dianabol for approximately six weeks along with your chosen steroids mentioned from the base section above. Once this six week period is over, your total cycle would continue without Dbol, but the base items would continue. This is the most common and popular Dbol cycle of all, but it's not the only one that's beneficial. Often forgotten, Dianabol is one of the best mid-cycle steroids we have; we're talking about mid-cycle use that aids us in breaking through a plateau; specifically, plateau busting. When you reach a sticking point, and you will, you'll need to provide some type of change to your diet, training or supplementation plan, maybe all three, and Dbol can be the change you need. It should be noted; if you used this steroid as a kick starter, you will need at minimum six weeks before you implement it again, and this means plateau busting is normally only going to be undertaken by hardcore advanced steroid users who are running extremely long and extensive cycles.
Regardless of your Dbol dosage, four to six weeks of use is about all anyone will ever need; some may extend to eight weeks total, but this should be rare and is normally not recommended. The reason for such short-term use once again revolves around this steroid's strong hepatotoxic nature, and if you ignore the recommended time frames you will put your liver at risk. Of course, as seen from the Dbol only cycle link, your total cycle should extend past this point of use or you will risk losing all your gains. A solid plan is an injectable or two with your Dianabol for six weeks, and then continuing the two injectable steroids for another twelve weeks.
