    What time of day to take Clenbuterol

    I will be starting my cycle soon and was wondering when the best time of day is to take it?

    I do 45 mins of cardio in the morning, fasted(5:30 AM) and I work out at 11:00 AM. Should I take it before cardio or after, if i take it after, how long should I wait to eat my first meal? Also, when i get to larger doses, should i break it up to twice a day?

    My cardio will be light, 45 mins of Bike, elliptical, or brisk walking at 135 BPM.

    Once you have worked up to 120mcg's, take it twice a day @60mcg's. Also take it way before your bed time as it may keep you up.

    Cool, so for now should i take it immediately following morning cardio?

    and when i do 2 doses, one following morning cardio and one before or after my afternoon workout?

    I used to take mine first thing when i woke up. Then a few hours later. You can break it up how you prefer really, however 120mcg's is alot all at once. Just remember to intake alot of water. Also take tourine and patasium pills.

    I used to take 120mcg with my coffee at 430am then another 80mcg when I got to work at 630am, also drink a red bull 16oz on the way to work....then I would be ready to get the day started.

    Clenbuterol has a half life of 36 hours. There is no reason to split dosages. Take it all in the morning.

    Regular old potassium at any supplement shop. Its not always needed, but some people cramp up on clen . Ive never cramped up, but increasing potassium is better just in case.




    Also dont take more then 120mcg's unless you have built up a tolerance to clen. Just my opinion tho.

    Would rather not modify macros to include sugary fruits to get potassium. Im just wondering if Potassium Citrate will do the same job as plain old Potassium

    "Potassium citrate is an alkalizing agent. It is used when your urine is too acidic. Your doctor may prescribe potassium citrate if you have a mild urinary tract infection, such as cystitis. Potassium chloride is a form of potassium for people who have low levels of potassium, also known as hypokalemia."

    I have an idea, why don't you see how it goes before taking this and that......if you don't need it, don't take it just to take it?

    Agreed no point to split up dose and if you do you might not sleep as well.
    take in the AM.

    because multiple people have reported it, and to be honest i don't feel like finding out mid-squat or mid-deadlift about a cramp, could be bad :P

    just like everyone said, take it at the beginning of your day to avoid trouble sleeping. most ppl go two wks on/two wks off. start off at 20mg/day to see how u react, and work ur way up to about 80-100mg/day. but, ultimately its what works for u.
