The Darkside Bulkers

(Note: There will be ZERO discussion about sources!)

This article is about what sort of chemical intervention you can use to get huge. At the same time, I would like to stress that it will be solely your responsibility if you overdo it and end up seeking chemical abuse treatment later on. But before I get into the really exciting stuff, I have to make sure you have your non-drug bases covered.


  • You should be consuming at least 18 calories/pound of bodyweight.
  • You should be getting at least 1.5 grams of protein/pound of bodyweight.
  • You should consume as many calories as possible around workouts.

Most of these dietary guidelines are not that much different from what you would be expected to do naturally. I feel like it must be stated before people start blaming the drugs for not getting them huge. If you are not doing these things, you are not gaining weight. If you are not gaining weight, you are undermining yourself. Stop it.


In general, just lift. Do something sensible. Check other parts of the site for different lifting programs. When you’re on shit, you’re gonna grow doing just about anything, so take your pick.

And now, onto…


Testosterone: You should have read my previous article and know all about testosterone and ancillary drugs. A base to a bulking cycle can be 500+mg a week of enanthate or cypionate. This should be included in any cycle.

Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca): This drug is mild in almost all respects. It is less androgenic, anabolic, and estrogenic than testosterone. One thing it does do nicely is increase collagen synthesis. This will keep your joints in shape while you’re blowing up. Injuries on juice are common because your tendons cannot accommodate the increases in muscle size and weight handled as quickly as your muscles can. It should be noted that Oxandrolone (anavar, mentioned in cutters) Growth Hormone, and Boldenone share this quality with nandrolone.

I personally am not a huge deca fan, as it may hang around for a long time after initial injection, possibly suppressing the HPTA long after the cycle. However, nandrolone in the form of phenylpropionate will probably make a nice addition.

Dose: 400-600 mg/week. I would stop the nandrolone at least two weeks before the testosterone to help minimize prolonged HPTA suppression.

Boldenone Undecylenate (Equipoise): Boldenone is an odd drug. It’s odd in that users either swear by it or swear it’s a waste of money. Boldenone is especially good at increasing RBC (red blood cells), a quality important to endurance athletes. You might say, what good is this to me? Answer: sick pumps. Crazy painful pumps, which some really like.

But the real reason boldenone is in the bulking category is a special effect. This is generally what users tend to rave about. In some, it makes you hungry. Actually, more like ravenous. If you’re able to obtain it, it might be worth a shot.

Dose: 600mg/week seems to be the sweet spot for all the effects.

Trenbolone: Tren is a steroid on steroids. Any possible positive or negative thing you can think about steroids should be multiplied by 5 to figure what tren produces. If dosed appropriately, tren can be managed, but it is not a drug to fuck around with. Several users have testified to the fact that tren changes your physique. It has no estrogenic effects, so it is actually quite tight and dry, in a lean bulking cycle it makes all the sense in the world.

Now that you’re salivating and trying to figure out where you can score some tren, let me inform you of the nature of the beast. Your blood pressure, cholesterol, acne, MPB, BPH will all be exacerbated by tren use. Tren will fuck you up if you’re not careful. It has been known to cause sleeplessness and agitation and just generally get in your head.

I would not recommend this drug until you have a few cycles under your belt, and are not worried about the afforementioned side effects.

Dose: 50-150mg/day for acetate ester.

400-1000mg/week for longer acting esters.

Methandrostenolone (D-bol, dianabol)

This drug is actually just boldenone with a methyl group attached at the 17a position. This modification makes the drug significantly more potent than its parent. Dianabol is an oral that can be added for the first four to six weeks of a bulking cycle to facilitate rapid gains in muscular and water weight. For reasons I’ve already mentioned in previous articles, I strongly recommend not using this by itself. Yes, you will blow up, but you will also shrink quickly.

Dianabol is mildly estrogenic, so have your Aromatase inhibitors and/or SERMs on hand.

Dose: 20 mg +. I’ve heard reports of people taking up to 100 mg a day, but that does not make it smart to do. The point of diminishing returns applies here. I wouldn’t go above 40 mg a day.

Dianabol aquired a reputation in the underground because of the massive and rapid gains it produced. But then came:

Oxymetholone (Anadrol): Holy shit, Batman, it’s the Pillsbury Doughboy. For just getting freaky big with one oral, it’s gotta be anadrol. This drug is kind of like tren in that it goes big. For one, it’s extremely liver-toxic, especially in the anabolic range (100 mg+/day). Water retention is going to cause your blood pressure to increase, and you can expect a lot of it.  Interestingly, anadrol does not convert to estrogen, but is itself estrogenic, so a serm will have to be used with this, as aromatase inhibitors won’t help.

30 pounds in six weeks can be achieved. Will it be a tight, dry 30 pounds? No, of course not. There is not a drug on the face of this planet that will make anyone put on a tight, dry, 30 pounds in six weeks. Your body just simply doesn’t work at that level.

So, just like tren, this drug does it’s job exceedingly well, but comes with increased risk.

Non Steroidal Bulkers:

(Taking supplements can increase your size and improve performance. But make sure you are always being safe. Abuse of and addiction to steroidal supplements can be so severe that it requires drug rehab.)

The following drugs can potentially be of great use on cycle, but are not steroids. They obviously wont build muscle like juice does, but they will help with the hardest part of gaining weight for most people–eating enough.

Marijuana: Yes, that’s right, I’m condoning it. For packing in extra food, it’s hard to beat a good smoke. Use sparingly and preferably at night because you’re not going to do anything productive after you smoke.

GHRP-6: This interesting little peptide is a research chemical that mimics ghrelin at the receptor. Ghrelin is one of the main hormones in the brain that acts to tell you that you’re hungry. As a plus, the receptor ghrelin causes a large release of GH, which should, at least theoretically, further help your cause.

GHRP-6 must be injected subcutaneously because the protein would hydrolyze in your stomach if ingested orally. Before you pin this, please have your food prepared. The effects of the drug are a lot like the effects of being severely hypoglycemic. You start to sweat and generally feel uncomfortable, and then you become ravenous. Sometimes the effects kick-in in as little as five minutes, so you don’t want to shoot and then start cooking.

Sample Bulking Cycle

Drug Dose Time (wks)
Testosterone Enanthate 500 mg/week 1-12
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate 500 mg/week 1-12
Dianabol 25 mg/day 1-6
GHRP-6 300 mcg after workouts 1-12

Something as simple as this could realistically put 20-25 pounds on in the three months it’s run.

Be smart. Get huge.

    Great article! This wouldve been a great find back in the day instead of having to sort through all the bullshit and or figuring it out on your own. Kinda like giving a heads up with certain substances (even though all users are unique there are certain universal sides) I look forward to reading your next one.

    Pip pip
