By its chemical structure, Max-One is similar to 17-alpha-methyltestosterone (see Methyltestosterone), as a result of which Max-One has a strong anabolic and androgenic effect, which is manifested in a significant increase in strength and muscle mass. Max-One acts quickly and reliably: an increase of one to two kilograms per week for the first six weeks is the norm when taking Max-One. Gained body weight is the sum of the actual increase in muscle tissue (hypertrophy of muscle fibers) and, mainly, due to noticeable fluid retention in the body.
The range of dosages of Max-One is the most diverse, especially among bodybuilders, weightlifters and powerlifters. This range extends from 2 to 20 tablets or more daily intake. Those athletes who believe that they should take a double-digit number of pills every day would do well to listen to Ciba-geigy’s own statement about Max-One, its own: “The most obvious criterion for Max-One’s action is weight gain. There is no direct proportionality between the increase in body weight and the dosage value. ” It goes without saying that it is not meant that from now on every athlete should take only one 5-milligram tablet per day. A daily dose that really works well for an athlete is about 15-49 mg. The dosage must always correspond to the individual characteristics of the athlete. Beginners in the use of steroids should never take more than 15-20 mg per day, because already with this dose in 8-10 weeks they can achieve significant results. If the effect of the drug on this group of athletes after about eight weeks is reduced, and the athlete still would like to continue the “course”, he should not increase the dosage of the drug. It is better, in addition to it, to take some kind of injectable steroid like Durabolin, 200 mg per week or Primobolan, 200 mg per week, or completely switch to one of the above mentioned drugs. The use of testosterone in this stage is not recommended. For very impatient middle-level athletes, a combination of Max-One 20-30 mg per day and Deca-Durabolin 200-400 mg per week will work wonders. Dan Ducain himself in his book “Handbook of steroids-2” writes on p.33: “If you do not increase the mass on the deck with Max-One, then do not increase at all on anything, no matter how good the drug is.” Those who are primarily interested in strength, and then muscle mass, can combine Dianabol with Oxandrolone or Winstrol (tablets). The addition of any injectable steroid brings the best results in terms of “mass”.
Professionals, athletes of the “advanced” level and those weighing over 100 kg need a dose not exceeding 40 mg per day, and in very rare cases 50 mg. It does not make sense at all to increase the number of Max-One tablets to a disparate scale, because 15 tablets do not work 2 times better than 7 or 8. A daily dose of 50 mg comes from pure ignorance. The simultaneous use of Dianabol and Anapolon 50 is an even worse idea, since these two drugs are too similar in their effects, resulting in a situation similar to that when an athlete takes 10 or more Max-One tablets. Max-One is unsuitable for preparation for competitions, because for many athletes it causes a strong water retention, and also because of its high convertibility to estrogens, it is difficult for an athlete to lose fat. Those who do not suffer from this problem, as well as those who have filled their hands with Nolvadex and Proviron, can take Max-One with “competitive” steroids – Parabolan, Winstrol Depot, Masteron, Oxandrolone, etc.
Women with doses of Max-One 10-20 mg per day achieve significant results. Bodybuilders who are not sensitive to an additional influx of androgens, and those who are completely unafraid of the masculinization side effects, use 2-4 tablets per day for a maximum of 4-6 weeks. Higher dosages and a longer time of taking the drug bring great results, but they make visible the presence of androgens in the female body. More than 10-20 mg of Max-One per day and 50-100 mg of Deca-Durabolin per week for more than 4-6 weeks should not be taken by a woman who values her femininity.
