A complete guide to Arimidex (Anastrozole)

After Franco Colombo died last month (RIP), I revisited some archive photos and videos of the golden age of bodybuilding.

During the course, we came across a video of the infamous 1981 Mr. Olympia, where Franco is the worst form of his bodybuilding career.

How he defeated Tom Platts, who remains so good, remains one of the unsolved mysteries of the Big Stage.http://ozucity.com/%e3%82%a2%e3%83%aa%e3%83%9f%e3%83%87%e3%83%83%e3%82%af%e3%82%b9%ef%bc%88%e3%82%a2%e3%83%8a%e3%82%b9%e3%83%88%e3%83%ad%e3%82%be%e3%83%bc%e3%83%ab%ef%bc%89/

Do n’t get it wrong. We have great respect for champions. He has been and continues to be an inspiration.

But in all respect, his form and conditioning on that stage were poor. He had a huge gynecology. It is also a must-see for newcomers.

How did a professional bodybuilder get caught up in the visible gynecomastia on the largest stage in the world?

Well, they did 'have an aromatase inhibitor back then.

These amazing drugs were introduced much later in the mid-1990s and have helped thousands of professional bodybuilders avoid such counterfeits since then.

If you are using anabolic steroids or are considering fixation, aromatase inhibitors will be an important part of the next few weeks. And you are most likely to recommend Arimidex from your coach or one of the personal trainers you work with.

Arimidex is one of the most commonly used aromatase inhibitors used by steroid users. The other is Aromasin.

What is Arimidex?

 Arimidex is the trade name for Anastrozole, an anti-estrogen drug introduced by Zenaca Pharmaceuticals in the mid-1990s to treat breast cancer in postmenopausal women.


Unlike Nolvadex, which was the most common method of treating breast cancer at the time, Arimidex completely blocks the aromatase enzyme, thereby reducing estrogen levels by up to 80%.

This meant that there were no estrogens circulating in the body for cancer cells to piggyback on.

Today, Arimidex is still considered the first line of defense against hormone receptor-positive breast cancer. Nolvadex may be introduced when the cancer is in remission.

In the cycle of anabolic steroids, it's usage is almost the same. It inhibits the aromatase enzyme, thereby preventing the conversion of testosterone to estrogen.


This helps prevent the concentration of side effects associated with high levels of estrogen. The most notable of these is gynecomastia.

How to use Arimidex

 The use of Arimidex or other AI during the cycle depends on the compound used.

The most commonly used basic anabolic steroid cycle is to use Test-E at 500 mg / week for 12 weeks.

In these situations, users typically deploy Arimidex in the second week of the cycle and continue to use it throughout the cycle.
