In this article, based on the analysis of the latest data, comparisons of all possible substances of anabolic steroids were selected for our clients, the main factors for which the ranking of the best steroids is made include effectiveness and safety!

As you know, almost all AAS, were developed during the XIX-XX centuries. Recently, new substances of anabolic steroids have not been synthesized, with the exception of the single discharge SARMs (selective andro-receptor modulators) whose properties are still under study. It is important to understand that the active substances themselves belonging to the class AAS are not very many. Another thing is that each manufacturer gives its derivative an individual name, that is, a trademark. For example, the famous “Methane” (methandrostenolone), has about 50 different trade names.

As we already know, mainly anabolic steroids are divided into two types: for gaining muscle mass and for relief. Depending on the goals, the user can combine both types of drugs.

The best steroids for gaining muscle mass

Testosterone Enanthate and Cypionate:


testosterone enanthate

Testosterone enanthate

Testosterone, the basis of all anabolic steroids. Virtually every course on the masses has this strongest steroid in its arsenal, is able to show good results both in the solo course and in combination with other AAS. Depending on the ester bond, it can be used both during the mass set and during drying. For a set of a large number of muscles, esters of enanthate and cypionate are excellent.

The hormone Testosterone, is prone to aromatization and does not belong to safe steroids, as it can significantly manifest side effects of a different nature. Because of this, with the intake of testosterone must be present.

Methandrostenolone (Danabol):


danabol ds 10

Methandienone oral (Dianabol)

The most famous anabolic in the world is as popular as Methandienone. This steroid is famous for its effectiveness, affordability and price. Used as an effective tool for both beginners and the most experienced athletes. It is the basic component of the course on the mass. Despite the repeated negative statements in the direction of Dianabol, the drug remains the most effective steroid to this day. “Methane” is able to increase muscle mass and strength of an athlete in the shortest possible time, but due to physiological factors of action, it has a pronounced recoil phenomenon resulting from the properties of a steroid, can be converted into estrogen and has hepatotoxicity.




Turinabol (4-Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone)

Oral steroid, chemical structure similar to “methane”, but with some changes. These changes, put an end to aromatization, but because most of the side effects such as gynecomastia and water retention, disappear. Turinabol is capable of gaining a cleaner mass, often used in strength courses, as it greatly increases strength and endurance. Due to the high cost of the drug, there are many fakes.

Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca-Durabolin):


deca 300

Nandrolone decanoate (Deca)

In the world of bodybuilding is widely known as “Deca”. One of the leaders among the AAS. On a row with Methandrostenolone, it is considered the best steroid for gaining muscle mass. It is distinguished by rather high efficacy, relative safety, low androgenic activity, minimal recoil, no conversion to estrogen, and low toxicity, but it can increase progestin activity and significantly reduce the production of natural dough. It is very important to use along with testosterone stimulants.

Oxymetholone (Anadrol):



Oxymetholone (Anadrol)

The most powerful oral steroid for weight gain, but along with high efficiency, is also the most dangerous. Do not neglect the rules of admission, any deviation from the instructions, you can leave a negative mark on your health. With Anadrol you can gain 15 kg in 3 weeks, while the rollback phenomenon of the drug is most pronounced relative to other anabolic steroids.

Sustanon (Omnadren):


testosterone mix

Sustanon 250 (Testosterone mix)

It has the same effects as testosterone, the difference is its versatility in terms of the period of action and absorption into the blood. So, Sustanon is activated within a couple of hours after the injection and is valid for several weeks. Due to its composition, mix 4 different testosterone esters, it acts weaker than the same testosterone enanthate, but is more practical to use.



long 300

Trenbolone Enanthate

One of the safest steroids. Not able to aromatize into estrogens and dihydrotestosterone. However, it has strong androgenic activity. Tren is about 4 times more powerful than Nandrolone. Able to effectively gain muscle mass and strength, while the mass is relatively clean and relief. Trenbolone is able to increase the level of IGF, which also contributes to anabolic activity.

Boldenone (Equipoise):



Boldenone undecylenate (Equipose)

Strong steroid with powerful anabolic properties and weak androgenic. By the action it is compared with Nandrolone, it enhances the process of protein synthesis and assimilation. Contributes to a noticeable increase in muscle mass, increases the number of red blood cells. Equipoise significantly increases appetite. The phenomenon of rollback is minimal, the mass is dry.

Top Steroids for Relief

Drostanolone (Masteron):


masteron 200

Drostanolone propionate (Masteron)

Professional drug. It has diuretic properties, has a strong androgenic effect but is not able to aromatize. Improves the relief, density and other competitive qualities of the muscles. Used in frequency before the competition. It can well burn body fat and increase the power and strength of the athlete. It is considered a good anti-catabolic.

Oxandrolone (Anavar):


anavar 10

Oxandrolone (Anavar)

It is considered the safest anabolic steroid. It has a mild anabolic effect. Able to build strength and small amounts of mass, gives the muscles dryness and relief. Does not require the use of PCT.

Stanazolol (Winstrol):


stanozolol 50

Stanozolol oral (Winstrol)

The most popular anabolic, used exclusively in the period of drying. Stanazolol is not able to increase muscle mass, although it accelerates protein synthesis. The drug is used to improve the quality of the muscles, with the intake of the drug, there is a manifestation of venosity, fat burning, increased relief, increased strength and endurance. Toxic to the liver.

Trenbolone Acetate:


trenbolone 100

Trenbolone acetate

Well gaining dry weight, in the shortest possible time, promotes the burning of fat and water, increases the volume and strength.

Testosterone Propionate:


propionat 100

Testosterone propionate

This testosterone ester is good in the drying period. The main disadvantage is that frequent injections are required, which are painful.

So, we alternately described the best steroids – this is the rating, according to experts, each of them deserves its place in the list.
