Transdermal patches (adhesive patches placed on the skin) may also be used to deliver a steady dose through the skin and into the bloodstream. Testosterone-containing creams and gels that are applied daily to the skin are also available, but absorption is inefficient (roughly 10%, varying between individuals) and these treatments tend to be more expensive. Individuals who are especially physically active and/or bathe often may not be good candidates, since the medication can be washed off and may take up to six hours to be fully absorbed. There is also the risk that an intimate partner or child may come in contact with the application site and inadvertently dose himself or herself; children and women are highly sensitive to testosterone and can suffer unintended masculinization and health effects, even from small doses. Injection is the most common method used by individuals administering AAS for non-medical purposes. 
Even though primarily a bulking steroid Anadrol cycles can be useful to the dieting competitive bodybuilder. Unlike our bulking use this period of use will take place at the end of the cycle, shortly before the competition is to take place. How it works is simple; the presence of this steroid allows the individual to fill out to a greater degree giving the muscles just that, a rounder and fuller look once on stage. It is very important to note, the individual should have some experience with Anadrol cycles before ever trying this as to know with certainty how they respond to the steroid. Anadrol can cause a fair amount of water retention and for a competitor that is the last thing you want. However, if you understand how to control the steroid, if you are in shape and are supplementing with a good aromatase inhibitor you will enjoy this benefit.
