Testosterone cypionate is one of the longest esters of testosterone available today. Its half-life in the body is approximately 15 to 16. The drug is available as an oily solution.
Like all injectable forms of testosterone, cypionate causes a significant increase in muscle mass and strength during the cycle. Because testosterone is easily converted into estrogens, approximately 30% of the mass will be taken up by a fluid that is quickly lost after the course is over.
For the same reason, testosterone cypionate is not suitable for a cycle. Excess estrogen levels caused by this drug can lead to a fairly rapid development of gynecomastia, which manifests as tenderness, swelling, or tightness in the nipple region. To prevent this, auxiliary drugs (Nolvadex or Clomid) are used. Antiestrogens minimize the effect of estrogens, and reduce the effect of anabolic steroids in a directional way. It is best to use aromatase blockers.
Since testosterone is the main male androgen, one can also expect the development of pronounced androgenic side effects. In many ways, their severity is associated with the rate at which testosterone in the body is converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This substance is a metabolite of testosterone, which is responsible for the development of known androgenic effects, which are associated with the use of testosterone cypionate. These include: increased secretion of sebum, acne, growth of hair on the body and face, as well as male pattern baldness.
Course – Testabol Depot
The duration of the course can be 4-12 weeks, depending on the goals. If it is prolonged for longer than 4 weeks, gonadotropin should be taken. Injections are done once a week, sometimes less often. To gain a sufficient amount of muscle mass, you need to use 250-500 ml of the drug per week. The optimal dosage is determined on the basis of the individual indices and experience of the athlete. A steroid is not recommended for women.
Very often, Testabol Depot is combined with nandrolone. The program should also be taking anti-estrogens. This can be proviron or tamoxifen. After the end of admission, post-course therapy is necessary.
