Today it has become extremely fashionable to use various versions of testosterone as the only anabolic on the course. Moreover, it is among fans of bodybuilding. Pros, this is a separate kitchen and they have everything quite differently. Let us consider the competent approach to the use of testosterone solo and deal with the various nuances relating to this topic.
I fully support this approach. Testosterone is the oldest, most studied, reliable and predictable drug from the entire class of hormone doping. Moreover, as time and experience show, it is also the safest, if we proceed from the position: efficiency is risk. And yet it is universal, with regards to the main goals of bodybuilding. Equally effective both on weight and on drying.
Add to this the almost complete absence of toxic effects on the liver and other internal organs, availability (if desired, you can get a certified product at the pharmacy), the presence of the declared active substance in the ampoules of the black market (there is nothing to forge), cheapness – and it becomes clear why the dough enjoys crazy popularity. No anabolic steroid will ever be able to compete with testosterone in terms of the basis of the hormonal course. No steroid has such a set of individual and comprehensive qualities.
Positive qualities of testosterone
Excellent stabilization of androgen receptor. The complex testosterone molecule + androgen receptor is extremely stable and reliable.
Lubrication of the joints. The amount of synovial fluid on the course of the dough increases significantly.
The increase in the amount of blood due to red blood cells, as a result, increased pumping during exercise (pumping) and more pronounced venousness and muscle density.
Tendency to aromatization. A slightly higher level of estradiol, compared with the physiological level, against the background at times overestimated level of testosterone is in favor of muscle growth.
Pronounced anti-catabolic effect. The dough perfectly absorbs the receptors for cortisol in the muscle tissue.
Increasing the number of androgen receptors in the muscles. Occurs with prolonged use of testosterone.
Intensive and more significant, in comparison with usual, restoration and accumulation of glycogen in the liver and muscles.
Increased endogenous secretion of IGF – 1 and somatotropin by the body.
Equally strong impact, both on beginners and on veterans of the steroid front.
Favorable effect on the psyche and mood, increase in power indicators and strength endurance. Increased efficiency, accelerated recovery. All this happens due to the conversion of a certain amount of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone.
Give me another drug from the class of androgens and anabolic steroids, which has a similar set of useful qualities. Do not bother, for there is simply no such.
Choosing Testosterone Options
- Testosterone propionate and Sustanon – 250 / Omnadren – 250 are suitable for people with hypersensitivity to estradiol. Modern original Omnadren, is a complete analogue of Sustanon, if someone does not know.
- For people with a low content of aromatase in the body (sometimes it happens), testosterone enanthate, cypionate and testosterone suspension are ideal.
- With a high content of the enzyme 5 – alpha reductase – testosterone propionate and testosterone suspension.
- Anyone who does not have distortions in one direction or another, you can experiment with all the ethers, choosing the most suitable option for yourself. I advise you to start with enanthate and propionate. They are the most simple and convenient to practice.
Testosterone propionate (the fastest ether) is aromatized and converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), to a much lesser extent than enanthate or cypionate. Suspension is also little susceptible to transformation into DHT, but in its case aromatization is much higher than in the case of long or composite esters. Sustanon and Omnadren perfectly balanced and aromatized very moderately. But due to the presence of long esters in their composition, they easily turn into DHT. Enanthate and cypionate enter the bloodstream and leave the body slowly and gradually. Accordingly, they are actively turning into both estradiol and dihydrotestosterone.
- In general, the optimal weekly dose for long and composite esters can be considered in the range from 500 to 1000 milligrams.
- Testosterone propionate, from 100 mg every other day, to 100 mg daily.
- Suspension of testosterone from 50 mg per day, up to 100 mg.
Naturally, people with a high content of aromatase and 5-alpha reductase enzymes should approach the increase in doses more carefully. Starting from the minimum. At the same time, those who have a weak aromatization, will suit higher amounts of dough than everyone else.
Unfortunately, not everyone has the opportunity to constantly spend a decent amount of money on experiments with various hormonal drugs. Including steroids, because some of them are not so cheap. It is for the these athletes are perfect use of testosterone as the only anabolic. And the results are excellent, and easy to control changes in the body. And the money saved can be spent on high-quality food, sports nutrition and a decent gym. Health to all.
