Steroid Cycles: When someone uses Steroids this is known as a Steroid Cycle. Steroid cycles can be split up into a few different categories.
Bulking cycles: These cycles are usually around 10 weeks long and involve the use of dianabol, deca-durabolin and Testosterone. The purpose of a bulking cycle is to add as much muscle mass and strength as possible.

Cutting Cycles: A cutting cycle involves drugs such as Winstrol, Anavar, Trenbolone and other steroids which do not cause much water retention. The point of a cutting cycle is to add lean muscle mass while burning as much fat as possible.
