What is Testosterone Cypionate?
Athletes claim that this drug produces dramatic size and strength increases. It can be stacked with a number of different steroids and yield even greater results, Cypionate is the most popular testosterone used by athletes. Effective dosages for men are in the range of 1-3 ccs per week.It comes in 250mg/2ml; vial injectable form of testosterone.
Testosterone Cypionate is a single-ester, long-acting form of testosterone. Due to the length of its ester (8 carbons), it is stored mostly in the adipose tissue upon intra-muscular injection, and then slowly but very steadily released over a certain period of time. A peak is noted after 24-48 hours of injection and then a slow decline, reaching a steady point after 12 days and staying there over 3 weeks time. A long-acting testosterone ester may be the best for all your mass-building needs, but it’s not an easy product to use. Nolvadex and Proviron will come in very handy in such cases and post-cycle. HCG and Clomid or Nolvadex will be required as well to help restore natural testosterone. Frequency of side effects is probably highest with this type of product.
Testosterone cypionate the rate of aromatization of this kind of testosterone is quite great, so water retention and fat gain are a fact and gyno can be a problem. 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. 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. The typical side effects can include nausea, acne, excitation or increased aggressiveness, chills , hypertension , increase in libido.
Testosterone Cypionate Side Effects:
Since testosterone is the primary male androgen, we should also expect to see pronounced androgenic side effects with this drug. Much intensity is related to the rate in which the body converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This, as you know, is the devious metabolite responsible for the high prominence of androgenic side effects associated with testosterone use. This includes the development of oily skin, acne, body/facial hair growth and male pattern balding. Those worried that they may have a genetic predisposition toward male pattern baldness may wish to avoid testosterone altogether. Others opt to add the ancillary drug Propecia, which is a relatively new compound that prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (see: Proscar). This can greatly reduce the chance for running into a hair loss problem, and will probably lower the intensity of other androgenic side effects. Although active in the body for much longer time, cypionate is injected on a weekly basis. This should keep blood levels relatively constant, although picky individuals may even prefer to inject this drug twice weekly. At a dosage of 250mg to 800mg per week we should certainly see dramatic results. It is interesting to note that while a large number of other steroidal compounds have been made available since testosterone injectables, they are still considered to be the dominant bulking agents among bodybuilders. There is little argument that these are among the most powerful mass drugs. While large doses are generally unnecessary, some bodybuilders have professed to using excessively high dosages of this drug. This was much more common before the 1990’s, when cypionate vials were usually very cheap and easy to find in the states. A “more is better” attitude is easy to justify when paying only $20 for a l0cc vial (today the typical price for a single injection). When taking dosages above 800-1000mg per week there is little doubt that water retention will come to be the primary gain, far outweighing the new mass accumulation. The practice of “megadosing” is therefore inefficient, especially when we take into account the typical high cost of steroids today.
It is also important to remember that the use of an injectable testosterone will quickly suppress endogenous testosterone production. It is therefore good advice to use a testosterone stimulating drug like HCG and/or Clomid/Nolvadex at the conclusion of a cycle. This should help the user avoid a strong “crash” due to hormonal imbalance, which can strip away much of the new muscle mass and strength. This is no doubt the reason why many athletes claim to be very disappointed with the final result of steroid use, as there is often only a slight permanent gain if anabolics are discontinued incorrectly. Of course, we cannot expect to retain every pound of new bodyweight after a cycle. This is especially true whenever we are withdrawing a strong (aromatizing) androgen like testosterone, as a considerable drop in weight (and strength) is to be expected as retained water is excreted. This should not be of much concern; instead, the user should focus on ancillary drug therapy so as to preserve the solid mass underneath. Another way athletes have found to lessen the “crash”, is to first replace the testosterone with a milder anabolic like Deca-Durabolin. This steroid is administered alone, at a typical dosage (200-400mg per week), for the following month or two. In this “stepping down” procedure the user is attempting to turn the watery bulk of a strong testosterone into the more solid muscularity we see with nandrolone preparations. In many instances, this practice proves to be very effective. Of course, we must remember to still administer ancillary drugs at the conclusion, as endogenous testosterone production will not be rebounding during the Deca therapy.
