Franco Columbu Steroid Cycle

Franco Columbu was an Italian bodybuilder who started his career as a boxer, later going into powerlifting and bodybuilding. He was friends with Arnold Schwarzenegger and even had a small role in the Terminator movie - as well as Pumping Iron. Franco Columbu had amazing stats for his height, he was 5 ft 4 inches, almost 200lbs (194lbs to be exact). Of course, for the monsters of today’s bodybuilding, he wasn't huge, but, when you look at his picture, you can see the man was in amazing shape.

I would call Franco Columbu a leader in his time and a revolutionary bodybuilder. He was (and still is) one of the strongest bodybuilders in the world, having lifted more than any bodybuilder (for his size) on the planet. What makes him even more amazing is that he's a resilient guy with a tough spirit. In 1977, while participating in the World's Strongest Man contest, Mr. Columbu fell and dislocated his leg. All the muscles had to be removed from his leg and the leg put back together. Doctors said he would never walk again. However, only a few years later he came back with a vengeance to win the 1981 Mr. Olympia contest.

One of the biggest debates (part of his legacy) about Franco Columbu is his steroid use. Since he was in the Pumping Iron movie with Arnold, it was clear he was using some kind of steroids. Though, there is no clear understanding what steroids Franco Columbu used during his time at the top. There are rumors Franco Columbu was using these steroids: dianabol, deca durabolin, but they aren't fully confirmed. Therefore, we'll recreate the Franco Columbu steroid cycle with both modern steroids and old-school steroids.

PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) – should be the Perfect PCT

Franco Columbu bodybuilder

Let's discuss why different steroids and products were used during this cycle and what's modern and what's old-school.

Old School Steroids used:

Dianabol – used as a bulker to really get those strong gains in the start of the cycle and keep them going.

Deca Durabolin – used as a bulking agent synergetically with dianabol and anadrol to produce strength and size.

Anadrol – used in conjunction with dianabol as a bulking combination. A lot of water gains but also a lot of strength and size gains like deca.

Modern products used:

Cardarine (GW-501516) – would be used to boost endurance and speed while decreasing bodyfat.

S-4 (Andarine) – used for strength gains to work in synergy with Deca/Dbol combination.

Aromasin – used as an anti-estrogen to reduce side effects from estrogen.

N2Guard – used to protect the body: liver, kidneys, organs for the side effects of steroid use.

Suggested additions to the cycle:

  • HCGenerate is a must on this cycle
  • You can use Arimidex instead of Aromasin
  • N2Slin would be a great addition to aid in fat loss
