How effective would a Clomid/Arimidex/finasteride stack be in comparison to an injectable anabolic steroid cycle?
As Ronnie Coleman would say, “That’s like comparing apples and oranges.” Clomid is a synthetic estrogen that increases testosterone levels by increasing the output of pituitary luteinizing hormone (LH). Arimidex is an aromatase inhibitor that blocks the conversion of testosterone into estrogen and in doing so prevents pituitary suppression of LH. Finasteride is a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor that blocks the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT) thus, maintaining higher blood levels of testosterone. Together, these three drugs synergistically raise testosterone levels into the highest physiological ranges possible (probably around 1,200-1,400). Injecting exogenous testosterone at a dosage of 500 milligrams per week or higher will lead to a significant pharmacological effect on the body- increased muscle mass. These pharmacological gains observed with high testosterone supplementation differ greatly from the physiological boost noted by slightly elevating natural testo
