As bulking is a primary purpose of use, many rarely think of Durabolin as part of a cutting cycle, but it can serve a purpose. This steroid will greatly protect lean muscle mass during a necessary caloric restriction. Remember, to lose body fat you must burn more calories than you consume, and this can lead to lean tissue loss. Durabolin supplementation will prevent this. During the dieting phase, many also choose to use Nandrolone for the recovery, endurance and relief it can provide. Undeniably hard dieting can take a toll on the body, making low dose supplementation during this phase extremely beneficial.
