Yes, you’re on the trailing edge of the bell-curve; it’s uncommon but certainly not unheard of or terribly unusual. In fact, it’s pretty understandable. This is often a transitionary period for people, trying to balance education with work and a social life – made all the harder if you’re one of the 60% of college students staring down the barrel of paying off those college loans. Some of you may have spent more time focusing on your studies or work. Others may still be in the middle of shaking off old identities and trying to work out social anxieties and inexperience.
In the world of bodybuilding where DNP is most commonly found a dosing of 600mg per day is not uncommon and such a dose can be taken safely; however, while we cannot recommend you ever use DNP to begin with, if you do we would prefer a lower dose of approximately 400mg per day . Remember, it does not take a lot to see any fat burning, no, it doesn’t take much at all and if you get greedy and try to speed the fat loss up you won’t; all you’ll do is severely damage your body. Most will also find 2-3 weeks of use to be the maximal time frame of use; that may not sound like much but when you think about what that short time frame can do it’s mind-blowing. As DNP can burn a full pound of body-fat per day one could easily drop 20lbs of pure fat in that time frame, not 20lbs of bodyweight but 20lbs of pure fat and that is absolutely amazing. For the first time user 300-400mg per day for a 2 week course is the only reasonable course of action and if another 2 week course is needed it is recommended at least 4-5 weeks of no DNP be put in place in-between the two 2 week runs.
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.
