Masteron is well-known for being one of the only anabolic steroids with strong anti-estrogenic properties. Not only does this steroid carry no estrogenic activity, but it can actually act as an anti-estrogen in the body. This is why it has been effective in the treatment of breast cancer. In fact, the combination of Masteron and Nolvadex (Tamoxifen Citrate) has been shown to be far more effective than chemotherapy in the treatment of inoperable breast cancer in postmenopausal women. This also makes it a popular steroid among bodybuilders as it could actually prohibit the need for an anti-estrogen when used in the right cycle. This will also prove advantageous during the cutting phase due to the hardening effects it can provide.

Masteron carries relatively low anabolic and androgenic ratings; however, these ratings are somewhat misleading. It’s important to remember DHT, the basis of Masteron, is five times more androgenic than testosterone with a much stronger binding affinity to the androgen receptor. This again promotes a harder look and can also enhance fat loss. Most all anabolic steroids are well-noted for enhancing the metabolic rate, but strong androgens have a tendency to directly promote lipolysis.

As an anabolic, Masteron isn’t well-known for promoting gains in lean muscle mass. It has never been used for muscle wasting in a therapeutic sense and will almost always be found in cutting plans among performance athletes. It can, however, promote significant boosts in strength, which could prove beneficial to an athlete who may not necessarily be looking for raw mass.

Without question, the effects of Masteron will be displayed in the most efficient way during a cutting cycle. However, for the effects to be truly appreciated the individual will need to be extremely lean. This is why the hormone will most commonly be found at the end of bodybuilding contest prep cycles as the individual should already be fairly lean at this stage. The added Masteron will help him lose that last bit of fat that often hangs on for dear life at the end of a cycle. It will also ensure his physique appears as hard as can be. Of course, the anti-estrogenic effect will simply enhance this overall look. For those that are not competitive bodybuilder lean, it is possible that the effects of Masteron may not be all that noticeable. The individual who is under 10% body fat should be able to notice some results and produce a harder, dryer look, but much over 10% and the effects may not be all that pronounced.

As a potent androgen, Masteron can benefit the athlete looking for a boost in strength. This can be a very beneficial steroid for an athlete who is following a calorie restricted diet in an effort to maintain a specific bodyweight necessary for his pursuit. The individual could easily enjoy moderate increases in strength and a slight improvement in recovery and muscular endurance without unwanted body weight gain.

As a bulking agent, the effects of Masteron will prove to be rather week. It is possible the hormone could provide gains in mass similar to Primobolan, which won’t be that strong either, if the total dose was high enough. However, the relative gain in size will be very moderate with many anabolic steroids being far more suited for this period of steroidal supplementation. There are those who may wish to include Masteron in a bulking plan for its anti-estrogenic and fat loss effects. The latter would ensure they kept their body fat gain minimized during off-season bulking phases, but this isn’t reason enough to use it in this phase. Body fat should be controllable without it. As for the anti-estrogenic effects, off-season cycles are normally comprised of large amounts of aromatase activity due to high doses of testosterone. Progesterone activity is also commonly high with the addition of Nandrolone compounds and possible Trenbolone. Consider additional Anadrol or Dianabol and this estrogenic activity can become very pronounced. Unfortunately, while possessing anti-estrogenic effects, Masteron will not be strong enough to combat this level of estrogenic activity.

Boldenone Cypionate

CAS No: 106505-90-2
Molecular formula: C26H38O3
Molecular weight: 398.58
Appearance: White powder.
Assay: 99%

Boldenone Cypionate is an anabolic steroid developed for veterinary use; it will increase nitrogen retention, protein synthesis, increases appetito and stimulates the release of erythropoietin in the kidneys.
Boldenone Cypionate was synthetisized in an attempt to create a long-time inject able methandienone (dianabol), in reality boldenone acts nothing like methandrostenolone. It has a very long half-life, and can show up on a steroid test for up to 1.5 years, due to the long undecylenate ester attached to the parent steroid. Trace amounts of the drug can easily be detected for months after discontinued use.

Boldenone cypionate is an ester of boldenone and is recommended as an aid for the treatment of debilitated horses when an improvement in weight, hair coat or general physical condition is desired. Debilitation often follows disease or may occur following overwork and overexertion.

Boldenone improves the general state of debilitated horses, thus aiding in correcting weight losses and improving appetite. It is not a substitute for a well-balanced diet. Optimal results can be expected only when good management and feeding practices are utilized.

Boldenone should be considered only as adjunctive therapy to other specific and supportive therapy for diseases, surgical cases and traumatic injuries.

Boldenone 200 USP injection provides boldenone cypionate is a long acting anabolic steroid used in veterinary medicine for the treatment of horses. Boldenone possess marked anabolic properties and a minimal amount of androgenic activity. Boldenone has a rapid onset of action; this is advantageous and is preferred over frequent oral dosing or even repeated injections. The esterification of the 17-beta-hydroxyl group increases the duration of the action of boldenone. Boldenone esters in oil injected intramuscularly are absorbed slowly from the lipid phase, thus Boldenone 200 can be administered at intervals of every 2-3 weeks.

Boldenone 200 contains boldenone cypionate in a 10ml solution for injection (200mg boldenone cypionate / ml).

Boldenone 200 is a dark yellowish oily solution for intramuscular injection.

Nandrolone Phenylpropionate

On the basis of the hormone’s function, Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is identical to Nandrolone Decanoate. Both forms are comprised of the same active hormone. In the case of NPP we have a shorter ester version that gives a larger burst of Nandrolone after injection, but also carries a much shorter half-life. This means Nandrolone Phenylpropionate has to be injected more frequently than its larger ester counterpart if blood levels are to remain stable.

Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is slightly more anabolic than testosterone with a rating of 125 compared to testosterone’s rating of 100. It is also significantly less androgenic with a rating of 37 compared to testosterone’s rating of 100. The reduced androgenicity is due to the Nandrolone hormone reducing to dihydronandrolone (DHN) instead of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This is one of the reasons Nandrolone Phenylpropionate can be well tolerated at higher doses in some men than higher doses of testosterone.

Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is also significantly less estrogenic than testosterone. Both Nandrolone and testosterone aromatize, but Nandrolone only does so at approximately 20% the rate of testosterone.

Important Note: Nandrolone Phenylpropionate carries a progestin nature, and this will play into the side effects of this hormone.

Nandrolone Phenylpropionate carries many positive traits that are similar to many anabolic steroids. However, this compound also carries functional traits that will far outweigh what some steroidal hormones can do. The positive functional traits of Nandrolone Phenylpropionate include:

Increased IGF-1 Production: Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) is a potent anabolic hormone that is also essential to our body’s ability to recovery. This is a hormone that affects nearly all cells within the human body.

Inhibition of Glucocorticoids: Known as stress hormones (cortisol) these hormones are essential to our health and wellbeing. However, glucocorticoids can also promote muscle loss and fat gain when they become dominant. Vigorous activity can lead to increases in stress hormones. Hormones like Nandrolone can reduce the production of stress hormones.

Increased Nitrogen Retention: All muscle tissue is comprised of 16% nitrogen. If retention falls we fall into a catabolic state. The more we retain the more anabolic we remain.

Increased Protein Synthesis: This refers to the rate in which cells build proteins, the building blocks of muscle tissue.

Increased Red Blood Cell Count: Red blood cells carry oxygen to and through the blood. Greater efficiency results in enhanced muscular endurance and recovery.

Increased Collagen Synthesis & Bone Mineral Content: This refers to the strength of bones and cartilage and the ability to strengthen and provide healing relief. This will hold true in joints more so than anywhere else.
Important Note: It’s often said Nandrolone forces water into the joints, thereby providing relief. This is not physically possible. It is not water, it is the enhancement of collagen synthesis and bone mineral content that provides relief.

Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is also well-suited for medical treatment in a host of areas. Although Nandrolone Decanoate is more commonly used, the Phenylpropionate version is still used with some regularity. The use of Nandrolone Phenylpropionate has been proven useful in the treatment of the following:

Muscle Wasting Diseases: Cancer, HIV, etc.
Improving Geriatric Weakness & Fatigue
Anemia
Breast Cancer
The Treatment of Burn Victims
Ulcers
Pituitary Dwarfism
Development Retardation in Children
Osteoporosis

Drostanolone Enanthate

Masteron Enanthate (Drostanolone Enanthate) is a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) based anabolic steroid. Drostanolone is simply the DHT hormone structurally altered. The alteration exists through the addition of a methyl group at carbon position 2. This ensures the hormone doesn’t suffer metabolic breakdown brought on by the 3-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase enzyme found in the skeletal muscle. This simple structural change also makes the hormone far more anabolic, and that gives us Drostanolone. Once the hormone has been created, altered from DHT, an ester is then attached, and in this case the ester attached is Enanthate. Enanthate is not a steroid or a drug but nothing more than a timing tool used for a drug.

As with Masteron Propionate, Masteron Enanthate is well known for being one of the only anabolic steroids that carries strong anti-estrogenic properties. This anabolic steroid cannot increase estrogen levels; in fact, it can actually decrease estrogen levels in the body. It is for this reason Drostanolone was successful in breast cancer treatment with the combination of Drostanolone and Tamoxifen being very commonplace for many years. Bodybuilders welcome this trait due to estrogen often being difficult to control with many steroids and lower estrogen levels often leading to a harder and more defined look during the cutting phase.

Masteron Enanthate possesses some of the most misleading anabolic and androgenic ratings of any anabolic steroid, although not nearly as misleading as Halotestin and Anavar. Drostanolone has a binding affinity to the androgen receptor that is five times greater than testosterone, which not only produces a harder look it can also have a positive impact on fat loss. All anabolic steroids can help improve the metabolic rate, but those with a strong androgen binding affinity can have an impact on direct lipolysis.

Effects of Masteron Enanthate

For the full positive effects of Masteron Enanthate to be seen a lean physique will show them best. This means the prime time for this steroid will be during a cutting cycle, and the leaner the individual is the more pronounced the effects will be. For the competitive bodybuilder undergoing a 12-16 week prep, you will find Masteron most commonly shows up in the latter half of prep once a significant amount of fat has been removed. The addition of the Drostanolone hormone may help him lose a little bit of the fat that’s still hanging on but more importantly it will ensure his physique possess the hard look that’s desired.

For the recreational bodybuilder or steroid user, one that’s not going to be as lean as a competitive bodybuilder, Masteron Enanthate is still a good choice for a cutting cycle. You may not end up as hard as the competitive bodybuilder due to not being quite as lean but hardness will appear nonetheless. However, if there is a significant layer of fat coving the body it may be very hard to find any noticeable benefit in terms of hardness and definition. This truly is a steroid that works best when already lean in regards to hardness.

While lean use is the best use for hardening it is not the only use for this anabolic steroid. Masteron Enanthate is a good choice for the athlete looking for a boost in strength and more so than often given credit for. Most steroid users only use Masteron when cutting, when calories are low and strength is necessarily diminished. But for an athlete looking for a boost in strength with little to no weight gain, this can be a solid choice. The athlete should also find improvements in recovery and muscular endurance, and regardless of the end goal recovery and endurance are both invaluable.

We’re then left with bulking use and while any anabolic steroid can be used for bulking Masteron Enanthate is perhaps one of the worst choices. The Drostanolone hormone doesn’t pack the punch needed for significant growth. Some growth may occur especially with a very high dose but there are far better options. There are those that will include low to moderate amounts of Masteron Enanthate in their cycle for the anti-estrogen benefits during the bulking phase, but when we’re talking about a bulking cycle that often includes high doses of testosterone this will not be enough to combat the aromatase induced estrogenic activity.

Methenolne Enanthate

  • 17beta-Hydroxy-1-methyl-5alpha-androst-1-en-3-one

  • Effective Dose: (Men) 350-600mgs/week; (Women) 100mgs/week

  • Anabolic/Androgenic Ratio (Range): 88:44-57

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.

Equipoise (Boldenone Undecylenate) is a structurally altered form of testosterone. It is a very slight change in an added double bond at the carbon one and two position. This double bond greatly reduces the hormone’s androgenicity, as well as estrogenic nature. It is then attached to the very large or long Undecylenate ester, which is responsible for controlling the release of the hormone once administered into the body. The Undecylenate ester allows for a peak release in Boldenone approximately 3-4 days after injection, with a slow continuous release of the hormone to follow for approximately 21 days.

Due to its structural change, Equipoise only aromatizes at approximately 50% the rate of testosterone. Estrogenic side effects are possible, but the odds are highly in the individual’s favor compared to testosterone. It is not as powerful of a mass builder as testosterone, not even close, but the reduced estrogenic activity should allow the individual to make cleaner gains through supplementation.

Equipoise shares many similarities regarding direct enhancement properties with testosterone. Common shared properties include its ability to enhance protein synthesis, nitrogen retention in the muscles, inhibit glucocorticoid hormones and increase IGF-1 output. Equipoise is also well known for increasing red blood cell count, a trait shared by most all anabolic steroids. However, issues of concern have been noted regarding how much Equipoise can increase red blood cell count. But available data tends to support this only being a concern with extremely high dose use for extremely long periods of time. In many ways, the increase in red blood cells provided by Equipoise can be fast and rapid, but may not present a significant advantage or disadvantage compared to most anabolic steroids when used responsibly. Without question, a moderate increase in cell production would be very advantageous for most any athlete.

Effects of Equipoise:
The effects of Equipoise are fairly straightforward. This is a generally well-tolerated anabolic steroid that presents notable anabolic activity in most users in a clean and even fashion. Outside of performance enhancement use, Boldenone did enjoy some success as a human grade steroid for a time. The steroid had some success in treating muscle wasting diseases and osteoporosis, but would ultimately give way to other steroidal options. As a veterinarian steroid, Equipoise is well-known for its use in horses, hence the name “Equipoise” and its similarity to the word “Equestrian.” EQ is often given to horses in an effort to increase lean body weight, which is in part due to the steroid’s ability to increase appetite. An increased appetite is well noted among many performance enhancing athletes that use Equipoise, however, it doesn’t appear to affect everyone the same. Many who use the anabolic steroid report no increase in appetite, it tends to be highly individualistic, but it could be useful for those struggling to consume needed calories.
As an off-season bulking steroid, Equipoise can add quality lean mass gains, but they will not come overnight, and will fall short of many anabolic steroids. Steroids like Deca Durabolin will produce far greater mass results, as will steroids like Anadrol and Dianabol; however, the latter two are often accompanied by large amounts of water retention. Some athletes have, however, reported stronger off-season gains when Equipoise is added to a total off-season stack rather than used as a base steroid. If appetite suppression is an issue, this steroid may very well help you consume the excess calories needed for off-season growth. Of course, while it may not be a tremendous mass building steroid, for some it may produce all the mass they want. Not everyone who uses anabolic steroids is looking for immense gains in size.

Equipoise is also well-noted for promoting increases in strength. An increase in strength can be very beneficial to an off-season mass plan, but perhaps more beneficial to the enhancement of athletic performance. Unfortunately, the extremely long detection time will prohibit many athletes from using EQ. Total detection time can stretch to five months. However, the steroid definitely provides numerous advantages to the athlete, not only in an increase in strength but a notable increase in muscular endurance. Recovery should also be enhanced. Regardless of the desired purpose of use, all who supplement with Equipoise will enjoy these related benefits.

Equipoise can also be used as a cutting steroid; in fact, this may be the most beneficial point of use. This anabolic steroid is an excellent protectant of lean muscle mass. In order to lose body fat, you must burn more calories than you consume, you must be in a caloric deficit, and this will hold true with or without anabolic steroid use. Unfortunately, a calorie deficit puts our lean muscle tissue at risk as the body will often take what it needs in order to meet its energy demands from our lean tissue. Proper dieting can greatly protect our lean muscle mass, but it can only go so far. Without the introduction of an anabolic steroid, some muscle mass will eventually and inevitably be lost. EQ will greatly protect you from this loss in lean tissue, and it has also been shown to have some very nice conditioning effects on the physique. Such effects will be greatly enhanced when combined with a non-aromatizing steroid like Masteron (Drostanolone) or Trenbolone. However, during most cutting plans of a competitive bodybuilding nature, while EQ is commonly used it is normally only used at the frontend of the cutting cycle. It will normally be discontinued during the later half of the plan due to possible estrogenic activity. While total estrogenic activity should be low, during this phase of supplementation any and all estrogenic activity is normally avoided or at least minimized to the lowest point possible.

Nandrolone

Nandrolone is one of the most popular anabolic steroids to ever be created and has been a staple among performance enhancing athletes of all types since its inception. It is also one of the few anabolic steroids that has remained prominent in medical circles and is highly valued in many therapeutic fields.

The Nandrolone hormone can be attached to any ester but is most commonly found attached to the Decanoate and Phenylpropionate ester, and in some cases the Cypionate ester. Nandrolone is well known for being one of the best off-season bulking agents for steroid users. It is also a favorite among athletes for its healing and recovery benefits. Because of its tremendous therapeutic benefits Nandrolone is used in many areas of medicine. However, due to anabolic steroid controversy its use has waned somewhat in the U.S. but still remains high in the rest of the world.

Nandrolone (all forms) is a 19-nortestosterone (19-nor) anabolic androgenic steroid. The 19-nor distinction notes a structural change to the testosterone hormone, specifically the testosterone hormone lacking the carbon atom at the 19th position. It is this slight alteration that gives us Nandrolone; Testosterone, remove the 19th carbon and a new steroid is born.

Nandrolone is carries an anabolic rating that is slightly greater than testosterone, but possess a much lower androgenic rating. Its androgenic rating is a mere 37 with testosterone’s rating being 100. The decreased androgenic rating is due to Nandrolone’s ability to reduce to dihydronandrolone (DHN) rather than dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This makes Nandrolone one of the most well tolerated anabolic steroids for adult men. Nandrolone possess very little estrogenic activity with an aromatase rate of only 20% that of Testosterone. It is classified as an active progestin and this will play into potential side effects, but they are controllable in most cases.

Nandrolone is an effective and powerful anabolic steroid for numerous reasons with several direct functional benefits. The primary functions of the Nandrolone hormone include but are not limited to the following:

  • Enhance Protein Synthesis
  • Inhibit Glucocorticoid Hormones
  • Promote Enhanced IGF-1 Production
  • Increase Nitrogen Retention
  • Increased Red Blood Cell Count
  • Increase Collagen Synthesis
  • Enhance Bone Mineral Content

Effects of Nandrolone

Simply by understanding the functions and traits of Nandrolone it’s easy to see the positive effects of this 19-nor compound, especially the positive medical benefits. For the performance enhancing individual, the bodybuilder or athlete, although a long standing favorite it’s also one of the most misunderstood. The common idea is that Nandrolone is a great bulking steroid and the truth is it is a fantastic bulking steroid. But for many steroid users that’s where it ends, and the truth is it doesn’t have to and often shouldn’t. A key point any steroid user must understand is that a steroid’s quality is not merely based on how much mass it can help you obtain. There are numerous positive effects a steroid can bring, and if mass promotion is the only one you ever shoot for you may very well shortchange yourself.

For the off-season athlete Nandrolone is often a staple and one of the best choices he can make. Increases in mass will not occur at a rapid rate, and that will remain true even if using a short ester version. You’re not going to gain 20-30lbs of mass in 4 weeks as you might with Oxymetholone, but you will gain quality mass and quite a bit over time, not the sloppy mass often seen in rapid acting mass builders. Strength should also increase to a degree, although this steroid isn’t well known for being a strong strength promoter. For the off-season athlete he will also enjoy the recovery and therapeutic benefits that are provided. This is important as off-season training is normally the time when the heaviest weights are used. The user will also find that he should be able to gain more size with less body fat than he would without Nandrolone use due to the positive impact the steroid will have on the metabolism.

We then find ourselves with the athlete, he’s not looking to bulk or cut but needs enhanced performance nonetheless. Nandrolone is one of the best choices if not the absolute best choice when it comes to a steroid to meet this end. Very low doses of Nandrolone will provide the relief and recovery they need, and a slightly higher dose will provide this along with increased levels of muscular endurance. Equally important, especially as it pertains to relief, this isn’t false relief or a masking effect – we’re not talking about painkillers but true relief.

We’re then left with the cutting phase, the time when many steroid users shy away from Nandrolone, but for decades many competitive bodybuilders especially the elite have recognized this steroid’s importance and benefits to a cutting plan. It’s not uncommon for low doses to be used for the therapeutic benefits. There is no time that the body will hurt and ache like it will during a cutting phase and Nandrolone is a great remedy. But others will use it as a direct steroid protectant, something to help protect lean tissue that would otherwise be lost due to the necessary caloric restrictions. It’s not uncommon to see a bodybuilder use Nandrolone during the first half of his contest prep and then drop it the second half for steroids that are better suited to hardening, although he may leave in a small amount all the way to the end for therapeutic benefit.

Deca Durabolin is one of the most commonly used anabolic steroids among performance enhancing athletes. It is well known for being a tremendously beneficial off-season mass steroid, but it’s also a favorite in many athletic circles for its therapeutic benefits. Due to its tremendous therapeutic benefits, the Nandrolone hormone is one of the most beneficial anabolic steroids in medical practice. However, due to years of anabolic steroid controversy such use has been quite limited in the U.S. for many years. Outside the U.S. Deca Durabolin remains a bit more popular in therapeutic treatment plans that can cover a host of areas.

Effects of Deca Durabolin:

While the therapeutic benefits of Deca Durabolin are easy to see simply by understanding its basic nature, what most are concerned with is off-label use. Deca Durabolin is a long standing favorite among performance enhancing athletes, and while it is tremendously beneficial it is often grossly misunderstood. The misunderstanding is that this is only a bulking steroid, and while that is a fantastic point of use it is far from the only one. In fact, some competitive bodybuilders will use Deca Durabolin during their cutting phase, and during such a phase there’s no bulking going on. However, in order to understand the effects of Deca Durabolin and the varying beneficial points of use, you must remove a flawed way of thinking held by many anabolic steroid users. This type of thinking assumes all steroid progress is based on the enhancement of lean muscle tissue; specifically building more lean muscle tissue. Undoubtedly, this is the primary purpose of anabolic steroid use, but it is not the only one. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the varying positive effects of Deca Durabolin.

As an off-season bulking steroid, Deca Durabolin will provide significant gains in lean mass, but the increase in muscle mass will come slowly. This is a large ester based steroid, and it will not be fast acting. However, the mass built with this steroid will often be higher quality mass than compared to many anabolic steroids. Water retention is possible, but it should be fairly easy to control. Most should also find their strength increases to a degree, but Deca Durabolin is not what we’d call one of the stronger strength increasing steroids. During this off-season phase, the individual will also enjoy the therapeutic relief this steroid provides, which will be more than welcomed when off-season periods of growth are normally accompanied by the heaviest periods of weight training. This individual should also be able to acquire this new growth with less body fat accumulation that would normally otherwise occur. The use of anabolic steroids is well noted for enhancing the metabolic rate. This is nothing unique to Deca Durabolin, and while it will not directly burn body fat it will aid in the maintenance of a proper level. As off-season mass gains require excess calories, consider the metabolic enhancement an added bonus.

Many athletes, ball players, fighters, and any athlete who could benefit from the therapeutic relief often supplement with Deca Durabolin. Such individuals commonly have no desire to build any new lean muscle mass, but the relief alone is invaluable. Further, such relief can be obtained by a very low dose. A slightly higher dose will provide relief, greatly enhance overall recovery, and enhance muscular endurance. When it comes to performance enhancement, most athletes will find this steroid is hard to beat. More importantly, the relief effects of Deca Durabolin are not masking or false; this anabolic steroid shares nothing in common with over the counter painkillers or prescription painkillers like opiates. Such painkillers only mask the pain, whereas Deca Durabolin can actually heal the body.

Then we’re left with the cutting phase, and some athletes and bodybuilders will use Deca Durabolin during this phase of steroid use. Such use will be similar to direct athletic enhancement. The individual will supplement with a rather low dose for the relief and muscular endurance it can provide. This can be very welcomed during hard diets, as a true hardcore bodybuilding cutting diet is brutal on the human body. As an added bonus, Deca Durabolin will greatly preserve the individual’s lean muscle mass that would otherwise be lost during a necessary caloric deficit. While this steroid will not provide hardening or conditioning effects like many steroids, it can serve a purpose is some cutting plans.

Trenbolone Acetate is an extremely powerful anabolic steroid and is considered the single greatest anabolic steroid by many performance enhancing athletes. This is one of the most versatile anabolic steroids on the market and can provide benefits quite unlike any other steroid. Trenbolone Acetate is also subject to numerous myths in the anabolic steroid world, but hopefully we’ll be able to dispel these myths and gain a firm understanding of the compound.

Effects of Trenbolone Acetate:

The effects of Trenbolone Acetate are nothing short of remarkable. However, we want to look at the effects of Trenbolone Acetate in a more practical way so that you’ll have a good idea as to what to expect from the steroid’s use. You will find this hormone is extremely valuable in both cutting and bulking plans, but if an edge were going to be given to one phase of use, it would have to be cutting.

During the cutting phase there is no anabolic steroid on earth as beneficial or as valuable as Trenbolone Acetate. This is one of the most powerful anabolic steroids available when it comes to the cutting phase and preserving lean tissue. During a diet, preserving lean tissue is one of the primary goals. The overall primary goal is losing body fat, but if lean muscle mass is not preserved, the diet cannot be deemed successful. However, in order to lose body fat you must burn more calories than you consume, and this can put your muscle tissue at risk. As you continue to diet and become leaner, muscle mass loss will occur. This is due to the body burning lean tissue to meet its energy demands. A successful diet will ensure the body burns stored body fat to meet this demand, but, due to the survival instinct of the body, it will often burn muscle mass instead. By supplementing with Trenbolone Acetate, we ensure this doesn’t occur, ensure muscle mass is protected, and burn body fat at a higher and more efficient rate. The enhanced fat burning is due to the steroid’s ability to promote a more powerful metabolism and even promote direct fat loss due to the strong binding affinity to the androgen receptor.

The lean tissue protection and fat burning of Trenbolone Acetate is not the only benefit during the cutting phase. This steroid will have stronger conditioning effects than any anabolic steroid on the market. Specifically, we’re referring to visual conditioning effects like hardness, definition, and vascularity. Not only are there no anabolic steroids that can promote these traits like Tren, there are not two other steroids you could stack together that would equal Trenbolone in this regard.

While tremendously beneficial to the cutting phase and often considered essential to competitive bodybuilders during contest prep, Trenbolone Acetate is also a phenomenal off-season bulking steroid. When we refer to this hormonal compound as versatile, that is truly an accurate statement. There are very few anabolic steroids that can promote mass like Trenbolone Acetate. More importantly, the effects of Trenbolone Acetate in this regard are not only strong but are far cleaner than most traditional bulking steroids. This hormone will not and cannot promote water retention, meaning each and every pound of weight gained due to use will be lean muscle mass. Of equal importance will be this steroid’s ability to help the individual control fat gain during a period of growth. To achieve true growth, this will require total caloric intake to be slightly above maintenance levels. How far above will vary from one man to the next, and while many often take it too far, this phase will still require a slight surplus. Unfortunately, this necessary surplus will promote body fat gains but due to the metabolic factors that surround Trenbolone Acetate they will be minimized. This is not a license to eat like there’s no end in sight, you can still gain a lot of fat if you continually gorge but you should be able to make better use of your total caloric intake. Those who supplement with Trenbolone Acetate during off-season periods of growth should gain less body fat than they would have without it.

Regardless of the purpose of use, all who supplement with Trenbolone Acetate will discover their muscular endurance is tremendously enhanced. This is a very common effect with numerous anabolic steroids, but perhaps a little stronger with Tren. Your muscles will not tire out as fast. However, some have reported that the use of the Trenbolone hormone tends to negatively affect their cardiovascular endurance, but this also appears to be a very individualistic type of thing. Some may find cardiovascular endurance hindered, while others will not. Regardless of this effect, muscular endurance will be enhanced as will the overall rate of recovery. This is important because recovery is where progress is made. Although it’s hard for many to wrap their head around it, progress is not actually made in the gym. Training actually tears and breaks down muscle tissue, but recovery is where the benefits are held. By enhancing recovery, we recover faster and more efficiently.

All who supplement with Trenbolone Acetate will also find this is one of the best anabolic steroids on earth for increasing strength. Those who supplement during a period of off-season growth will find tremendous increases in strength. However, even with maintenance level calories strength should still increase. During a caloric deficit, it is possible for a moderate strength increase to occur if the hormone is used early on in a diet. As the individual becomes very lean, such as competition lean, it’s unlikely he should expect a strength boost. Again, this steroid is very common in competitive bodybuilder contest prep plans, and it is most commonly used at the back half or back end of a plan. This allows for the benefits to show through with the most strength. The hardness and definition won’t be as pronounced if there’s still a significant layer of body fat on the physique. However, during this phase of use, strength probably won’t go up, but the individual should find he is able to maintain a lot more strength that would otherwise be lost.

Trenbolone Enanthate

  • (Trenbolone Base + Enanthate Ester)
  • [17beta-Hydroxyestra-4,9,11-trien-3-one]
  • Formula (base): C18 H22 O2
  • Formula (ester): C7 H12 O
  • Molecular Weight (base): 270.3706
  • Molecular Weight (ester): 130.1864
  • Melting Point (base): 183-186C
  • Effective Dose (Men): 200-600mgs/wk
  • Effective Dose (Women): Not recommended
  • Active life: 8 days
  • Detection Time: 5 months
  • Anabolic/Androgenic ratio: 500/500

The Trenbolone hormone is well known for being the greatest anabolic steroid for cutting purposes, and that’s a hard point to argue against. However, compounds like Trenbolone Enanthate are also tremendously beneficial during periods of off-season growth. This anabolic steroid has the ability to promote true lean tissue growth at a rate far above and beyond most anabolic steroids. More importantly, it will do so in a cleaner way than most steroids. Many steroids associated with off-season bulking often promote large amounts of water retention, but this is impossible with Tren. Each and every pound of weight gained due to the use of this hormone will be pure lean muscle mass. Of equal importance, the individual will find he gains less body fat during his off-season phase due to this steroid’s tremendous metabolic enhancement and fat burning properties.

When considering off-season use of Trenbolone Enanthate, there is something we must keep in mind. Use will help the individual control his body fat, but this does not mean body fat is impossible to gain. You must consume a level of calories above maintenance to truly grow. Thankfully, with Tren you will make better use of each calorie and the metabolic factors will also provide fat gain protection. However, there will still be a cutoff point. The use of Tren in the off-season is not a license to eat like there’s no end in site. You can still gain plenty of body fat if you don’t exercise self-control.

Then we have the cutting phase, and we can say with confidence there is no anabolic steroid on earth more valuable to this phase than Trenbolone. Trenbolone Enanthate, as should be obvious will help you burn fat at a more powerful and far more efficient rate. That alone is a benefit but it is far from the primary one. There is no anabolic steroid that will preserve lean mass like Tren and that is one of the two key goals during a diet. In order to lose body fat, we must burn more calories than we consume. This can put our lean tissue at risk and the body will begin to feed on it in order to meet its energy demands. It will often feed on it before body fat as part of its survival instinct, especially once our body fat levels become low. If we’re losing weight, but also losing muscle tissue this is not successful dieting. The goal is to lose body fat while maintaining as much muscle tissue as we can. Trenbolone Enanthate will provide this protection and ensure we burn only body fat and not our hard earned muscle tissue. The hormone will also promote strong conditioning effects. Hardness, increased vascularity and overall greater definition are all common with Tren. In fact, you can take any two steroids on earth and combine them and not receive the conditioning effects provided at the rate of power of Tren.

All who supplement with Trenbolone Enanthate will find their muscular endurance is greatly enhanced. Bulking or cutting this will occur, as will a dramatic improvement in recovery. This all leads to greater progress and a more efficient body in a physical functioning capacity. However, some have reported issues of decreased cardiovascular endurance when using Tren, and this will keep some athletes from using it. However, it is not a guaranteed effect by any means. Many will be able to use the hormone without any negative effect on cardiovascular endurance. It appears to be very individually based. All who use Trenbolone Enanthate, especially in the off-season should also find their strength greatly increases. Even at maintenance calorie levels strength increases should be significant. During a calorie deficit, especially when the individual becomes very lean, an increase in strength should not be expected. However, the use of Tren should ensure you maintain far more strength than you would otherwise.
