For several years in the mid-1980s, NBC broadcast coverage of the Ms. Olympia contest on their Sportsworld program. The taped footage was telecast months after the contest, and was usually used as secondary material to fill out programs featuring events such as boxing. Typically, the broadcasts included only the top several women. Nevertheless, Rachel McLish and some of her leading competitors were receiving national TV coverage. McLish authored two New York Times best-selling books - "Flex Appeal" (1984) and "Perfect Parts" (1987) – and was also starring in action films. The popularity was growing and women were being empowered and inspired to train. In 1983, the top prize money for the women bodybuilding was $50,000, equal to that of male bodybuilding.
The reason many opt for the 2 week on/2 week off Clenbuterol cycle is simple; the body adapts to the medication and by taking a break from use you are able to maintain a positive metabolic output each and every time use begins. However, this method has a problem, for when use is discontinued the metabolism slows down due to the absence of the fat-burner that heats up your body temperature; without its presence the body temperature drops due to the mitochondria now producing less heat and the metabolism slows down. Through the incremental Clenbuterol cycle this is not a problem because the medication remains in the system through the duration of the dieting phase; but what about your bodys adaptation? By slowly and steadily incrementing the dose upwards every 2-3 weeks you do not allow your body to become accustomed; it is true, the jittery feeling often associated with this bronchodilator may be less but jittery or not has nothing to do with the medication working.
