    How muscle sparing is clenbuterol?

    Seen mixed reviews on this.

    Assuming one is running AAS and slowly ups the clen dose from 40-60-80-120-160 in a period of the cycle. Does clen chance at burning muscle or is muscle safe since the use of AAS?

    No, Clen doesn't work like that, it's a CNS and is absorbed at the beta-receptor level. Think of it as a more precise variation of Ephedra, neither of these has T3 catabolism properties. T3 should always be run on cycle for that reason.

    Can you perhaps word that differently?

    Well, magic obviously has a stronger grasp of the scientific aspects of both clen and t3 than I do. But if there is any concern about the two, you should be more concerned about t3 eating away muscle far before clen. The reason t3 should always be used on a cycle is because it will make you lose weight, both muscle and fat. T3 does not discriminate and will cause you to lose both. Hopefully magic will come back and respond in more detail. Good luck!

    So it's not catabolic which is good but is it muscle sparing by itself or is it because you wouldn't need to run as big of a calorie deficit to lose the fat, helping to preserve muscle?

    You wont burn muscle from taking clen . It does not eat muscle tissue.
