Testosterone is the
main mail sex hormone. It is also a steroid from the androgen
This hormone is secreted in the main way in the testes of males
and the ovaries of females, but it is also elaborated/worked out
by the adrenal glands, where from it takes its name.
Testosterone occupies a primary role in health, well –
being, and of course, in sexual function in the men and women
bodies. The functions such as:
- increased energy,
- production of red blood cells,
- enhaced libido, and
- even protection against osteoporosis.
As a rule the testosterones which is produced by an adult human
male body is on average on 40 to 60 times more than a female body.
But the women are more sensitive to the hormone through their
behavior ( if we will be looking from biological or anatomical
Testosterone is an important human male hormone and one of the
most known androgenic steroids. It is well known as the best possible
muscle mass builder in the world.
There are different esters of Testosterone, for example: cypionate,
enanthate, propionate, etc. Also there are a lot of blends that
are used for growing the strength and size of muscle mass. Although
these types are close in those terms, the comparison is possible,
and each of them has the good and bad effects.
On the one hand, Testosterone can provide a big risk of different
side-effects because of that it may easily change to a more androgenic
form in tissues and can forms easily estrogen. Estrogen has its
good side of enhancing growth hormone capacity, glucose utilization,
and help to improve the immunity system.
On the other hand, the other testosterone combinations have a
high risk of activating the major size and strength of body mass.
Testosterone enanthate, for example, is a single - ester and
long - acting form at the base of testosterone. It is not so important,
but structurally Testosterone enanthate has 7 carbans not 8 in
length and this fact mean that in users who weekly injected it
the less of the body weight are Testosterone and its esters.
In general, the weight grows up more and more the ester is used
These saying we can conclude, that is safe to say that 500 mg
of testosterone enanthate contains more testosterone in comparison
with the same quantity of cypionate or propionate. It is not a
big difference, but it exists, and when you think “what
to use?” it is your choice, but I can say that to choose
a ester of testosterone is better than Sustanon 250 or Omnadren,
which are blends of esters of the Testosterone.
So when you want to start use steroid? You should think and choose
the most fitting for you not only from the money side, but also
from the most important side: What are the main aims you want
Stacking and Use:
Testosterone is the most powerful compound there is, so obviously
its perfectly fine to use it by itself. With a long-acting ester
like Enanthate doses of 500-1000 mg per week are used with very
clear results over a 10 week period. If you?ve ever seen a man
swell up with sheer size, then testosterone was the cause of it.
But testosterone is nonetheless often stacked. Due to the high
occurrence of side-effects, people will usually split up a stack
in testosterone and a milder component in order to obtain a less
risky cycle, but without having to give up as much of the gains.
Primobolan, Equipoise and Deca-Durabolin are the weapons of choice
in this matter.
Deca seems to be the most popular, probably because of its extremely
mild androgenic nature. But Deca being one of the highest risks
for just about every other side-effects, I probably wouldn?t advise
it. If Deca is used, generally a dose of 200-400 mg is added to
500-750 mg of testosterone per week. Primobolan is sometimes opted
for, and can be handy since it doesn?t aromatize, which will make
the total level of water retention and fat gain a lot less than
with more test or with Deca for example. Unfortunately, its mild
nature combined with a lack of estrogen make Primobolan a very
poor mass builder. Again, doses of 300-400 mg are used. I would
actually suggest a higher dose, but with the current prices for
Primo I don?t think it would be very popular. My personal preference
goes out to Equipoise. androgenically its not that much stronger
than Deca because it has next to no affinity for the 5-alpha-reductase
enzyme and is only half as androgenic as testosterone. Its twice
as strong as Deca, mg for mg, and has a lower occurrence of side-effects.
It has some estrogen, but not a whole lot so it actually tends
to lean a person out rather than bloat him up as Deca will. It
also increases appetite, which promotes gains, and improves aerobic
performance, which may be wishful as testosterone normally has
an opposite effect.
of course testosterone Enanthate can be stacked with any number
of compounds apart from these, but these make the best match.
When stacking with testosterone, one needs to look at what the
other compound can bring. Either it has a characteristic that
testosterone doesn?t have, or its nominally safer. The testosterone
will bring all the mass, so adding another steroid to enhance
mass alone, is futile. More testosterone is the best remedy for
One needs to be familiar with a host of other compounds when
using long-acting testosterone esters however. First of all, anti-estrogens.
The rate of aromatization of testosterone is quite great, so water
retention and fat gain are a fact and gyno is never far off. If
problems occur one is best to start on 20 mg of Nolvadex per day
and stay on that until problems subside. I wouldn?t stay on it
for a whole cycle, as it may reduce the gains. In terms of an
aromatase blocker, testosterone is one of the few compounds where
Proviron may actually be preferred over arimidex. The proviron
will not only reduce estrogen and can be used for extended time
on a testosterone cycle, it will also bind with great affinity
to sex-hormone binding proteins in the blood and will allow for
a higher level of free testosterone in the body, thus improving
gains. Usually 50-100 mg will suffice, the lower end is preferred
for maximal results since estrogen plays a key role in gains,
but those more worried about estrogen should opt for a higher
For those worried about androgenic side-effects (hair loss, prostate
hypertrophy, deepening of voice), one can utilize the hair loss
treatment finasteride. This blocks the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme
and stops the conversion of testosterone to the more androgenic
compound DHT. I?m not a big fan of this, because DHT reduces estrogenic
bloat, increases free levels of testosterone and is a very potent
androgen that is 3-4 times stronger than testosterone. Those worried
about hair loss however, may want to opt for arimidex as their
anti-aromatase, since Proviron is a form of DHT after all.
After a cycle, mainly due to the high aromatization and increased
levels of estradiol in the blood after discontinuing, natural
testosterone levels will be severely suppressed. This means steps
need to be taken to assure the quick return of natural testosterone,
or we stand to lose a lot of the gains we made while using testosterone.
Since it?s a non-toxic, potent mass-builder its mostly used in
long 10-12 week cycles. So some testicular shrinkage will have
occurred too. Its very important that people see that HCG and
Nolvadex/clomid are essential as a post-cycle therapy, and that
both are equally important in achieving our goal. HCG injections
should be started the last week of the cycle and continued for
3-4 weeks, using 1500-3000 IU every 5-6 days. HCG will act as
an alternative to LH and start the endogenous testosterone cycle,
thereby increasing testicle size once again. Then about 2 weeks
after the last shot of testosterone is given, Nolvadex/Clomid
cycle should be started. 40 mg of Nolva or 150 mg of Clomid per
day for two weeks, followed by two more weeks with either 20 mg
of Nolva or 100 mg of Clomid per day should be adequate. Always
remember that HCG is suppressive of natural testosterone itself
and should be discontinued at least 2 weeks prior to finishing
