Sustanon 250 is a popular testosterone blend (mixture) and is without question the most popular and well known blend ever made. The compound carries a mixture of small and large esters in a precise dose. It is the precise dose of each of the four testosterone esters that make it. You could take four other testosterones and combine them in the same dosing strength but this would not make it Sustanon 250. This is important because there are underground labs that try to pass off other mixtures as Sustanon 250. The precise makeup of Organon’s product is as follows:
- 30mg Testosterone Propionate
- 60mg Testosterone Phenylpropionate
- 60mg Testosterone Isocaproate
- 100mg Testosterone Decanoate
Effects of Sustanon 250:
If you suffer from low testosterone and supplement with Sustanon 250 you will suffer no more; problem solved. Then we have performance enhancement, and we want to break down the effects of Sustanon 250 in a way that gives them a real life understanding.
During an off-season bulking cycle this is one of the best times to use Sustanon 250. High testosterone levels create the perfect atmosphere for muscle growth. Granted, the calories have to be there. If you’re not eating enough all the testosterone in the world wont’ help you grow. However, the combination of a well-planned diet and high testosterone levels will see tremendous advancements in lean tissue growth. Of equal importance, high testosterone levels will enhance your metabolic rate. Those who have higher testosterone levels will gain less body fat during their off-season than those who do not have higher testosterone levels. Make no mistake, you can still gain a lot of unwanted body fat if you’re not careful with your off-season nutrition, but high testosterone levels will give you the ability to make better use of this period in training.
While many understand high testosterone levels are beneficial when growing, many fail to understand how beneficial they can be when cutting. A cutting cycle is a perfect time to supplement with Sustanon 250. Due to its tremendously powerful anabolic nature this hormone will protect lean muscle tissue better than just about anything else. When we diet we must burn more calories than we consume and this puts our lean muscle tissue at risk. The body will take what it needs to meet its energy demands from wherever it can get it, and this is often out muscle tissue. The idea is to force the body to burn fat, not muscle and a well-planned diet can help but it can only go so far. At some point the body will go into survival mode and protect the stored body fat and tap into muscle stores for its energy needs unless there is an anabolic protectant such as what high testosterone levels can provide.
Protecting lean tissue is the primary benefit of high testosterone levels when cutting, but it’s not the only one. The use of Sustanon 250 will enable the individual to burn body fat at a more efficient rate due to the metabolic enhancement high levels will provide. It is, however, important to note that many will need to use less Sustanon 250 during their cutting phase compared to off-season phase due to estrogen sensitivity. This will make more sense once we dive into the side effects section. However, some often make the mistake of taking their testosterone levels too low during the cutting phase. Remember, it took high testosterone levels to build the mass you have and it will take similarly high levels to maintain it. You can cut the total dosing down during the cutting phase but you need to be smart about it and consider the inclusion of other anabolic steroids.
The effects of Sustanon 250 do not end with what we’ve discussed so far. High testosterone levels will greatly enhance muscular endurance. You will not tire out as fast when your testosterone levels are high. The use of Sustanon 250 will also dramatically improve your overall rate of recovery and this is invaluable. Recovery is where progress is made. Progress isn’t actually made in the gym when we train. When we train we are actually tearing down muscle tissue. It is the repair process that brings about progress. High testosterone levels will see this progress enhanced and undertaken in a more efficient and thorough manner. This makes high testosterone levels very beneficial to athletes as recovery and endurance are key components to athletic performance. As a bonus, Sustanon 250 will increase the individual’s strength, again a key component to athletic success.
