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.
As an example, should you choose to run a cycle that includes both Dianabol and Anavar, you will need to be extremely careful when it comes to overlapping them. The two are both hepatotoxic, which means they will cause liver damage. You will need to consider this carefully when it comes to choosing cycle lengths. If you take Dianabol for four weeks at the beginning of your cycle, then make the switch to Anavar, you should limit your Anavar use to four weeks, as well. This reduces your entire cycle time to eight weeks, which helps to alleviate some of the risk of liver damage.
