Gains produced from the use of Dbol do not vary a great deal between users. Most users will on average experience the same types of mass building gains from this compound. As previously mentioned, it is for the most part an anabolic steroid best utilized for the purpose of mass, strength and bulking applications. The average user should expect significant amounts of weight gain in very short periods of time, most usually two weeks following the first administration. At doses of 20mg per day, gains of 10-15 lbs. in a matter of a few weeks are not uncommon especially for beginners. But as one should expect from a compound like this, not all of this mass is usually lean muscle. Dianabol is known for its Estrogenic effects in promoting water gain and possible fat retention, which can compose a solid portion of any given amount of mass gain. If its run alongside an Aromatase Inhibitor , water retention caused by Estrogen can be effectively eliminated. This is when the more desirable and realistic lean mass gains can be experienced, where more realistically lean mass gains expected can be in the range of 5-10 lbs. within the first few weeks.
