Primobolan is a relatively mild anabolic steroid carrying an anabolic rating of 88 and an androgenic rating of 44-57. In order for these ratings to hold some teeth consider the rating system. All ratings are derived using the testosterone hormone as the baseline. Testosterone holds a rating of 100 in both categories. As you can see, Methenolone is a little weaker and while its anabolic rating isn’t that far off it is a little deceiving. Primobolan will not provide as much lean tissue growth properties as its rating implies.
In its direct functioning capacity, Primobolan offers several traits commonly found in anabolic steroids. The hormone has the ability to enhance protein synthesis and increase red blood cell count, as well as inhibit glucocorticoid hormones in the body. These traits do not manifest in Primobolan as strongly as they do with many steroids, but they are in part what make this a valuable anabolic steroid. Where this steroid truly shines is in its ability to promote nitrogen retention in the muscles, as well as it possessing a strong binding affinity for the androgen receptor. The enhanced nitrogen retention is important due to the fact that all muscle tissue is comprised of approximately 16% nitrogen. Low nitrogen levels will lead to a catabolic state, where as the more we retain the more anabolic we remain. Then we have the androgen receptor binding, this is important as such a trait has been linked to lipolysis. Almost all anabolic steroids promote a stronger and more powerful metabolism, but the strong binding affinity for the androgen receptor actually promotes direct fat loss. Coupled with the enhanced nitrogen retention, this makes Primobolan an excellent cutting steroid.
The Methenolone hormone has also been shown to have a positive affect on the immune system. In cases of muscle wasting and immune issues such as with AIDS, Primobolan has proven very useful. It may very well not be the only steroid used in such cases. As it won’t promote strong mass characteristics it probably won’t be the only one prescribed. However, the moderate anabolic nature along with immune enhancement makes it a top choice in these cases.
The ability of Primobolan to enhance the immune system can also be very beneficial to every day steroid users. If your immune system is stronger, you’ll be healthier and have an easier time reaching your goals. But in the case of a cutting cycle it can be extremely valuable as immune systems often become a little weaker during a hard diet. This can hold very true among competitive bodybuilders who often go through diets for several months most people could not endure for a week.
Effects of Primobolan
As a bulking steroid in an off-season plan, Primobolan is generally not the best choice. The steroid simply isn’t well-suited for a significant promotion in lean tissue mass. However, this is a steroid that cannot promote water retention as it lacks any estrogenic activity. Due to this fact any weight gained due to use will be 100% pure lean muscle mass, it simply may not be all that much.
When it comes to off-season use, we can, however, make an exception for females. Women are far more sensitive to the hormonal compound, and it may very well provide the anabolic boost they need for off-season growth. We’d actually call Primobolan one of the best anabolic steroids for female off-season use. For those who are worried about a lot of excess mass, most women aren’t looking to gain 30lbs, remember total mass will largely be dependent on the individual’s diet and total steroidal dosing. Keeping the dose moderate and controlling your diet will enable you with the ability to easily control the amount of mass you want to gain. As a bonus, due to the metabolic enhancement and fat burning properties of this steroid, you will be able to gain off-season muscle mass with less body fat accumulation that would otherwise occur.
From off-season bulking the next point of discussion will be the cutting phase. Without question, man or woman this will be the best time to use Primobolan. This is a fantastic steroid for protecting hard earned muscle tissue. In order to lose body fat, we must burn more calories than we consume. You can follow the healthiest diet on earth and exercise yourself into the ground, but if you do not burn more than you consume you will not lose body fat. Through this necessary caloric reduction, this can put our lean muscle mass at risk. The deficit will cause the body to pull what it needs for its energy demands from wherever it can. The idea is to ensure it’s pulling from fat, but the body will be tempted to pull from muscle tissue in an effort to save body fat. This is part of the human bodies survival instinct. By supplementing with Primobolan, we ensure our muscle mass is protected and fat is lost. We also ensure body fat is burned at a far more efficient rate. Those who use Primobolan in this phase will also notice they are much harder and defined once body fat is low.
Primobolan can also be a good steroid for athletic enhancement. It has the ability to promote increases in strength and will have a positive affect on muscular endurance and recovery. Equally important, as it’s not a powerful mass builder this can make it a great choice for many athletes. Many athletes don’t want to gain a lot of mass if any at all. In some cases, added mass may hinder performance. More importantly, staying away from rapid increases in muscle mass will protect the athlete from prying and suspicious eyes.
