If you want to know what clenbuterol is, how it works, how effective it is, and if it’s dangerous, then you want to listen to this episode.

Hang around in the gym long enough and you’re going to hear about clenbuterol.

Like steroids, “clen” is extremely popular in the world of bodybuilding and is the “go-to” cutting drug for many of the people that step on stage.

Thus, it’s not surprising that it’s also a hot commodity among the general fitness crowd.

If you want to shred fat as quickly as possible without losing muscle, the pitch goes, then you want to hop on the clenbuterol train.

Or do you?

Poke around on the Internet and you’ll find people that think otherwise.

Clenbuterol, they say, isn’t actually all that powerful of a fat burner and is bad for your health to boot, and for your heart in particular, even when used in moderate doses.

Who’s right?

How much can this drug really boost your fat loss? Should you take warnings about side effects seriously, or are they exaggerated? Is there anything else you should know before deciding for or against clen?

Well, you’re going to get answers to all of those questions and more in this episode.

By the end, you’re going to know exactly how clenbuterol works, how effective it really is, how likely it is to harm your body, and more.

Let’s get to it.
