Recently, the use of solo esters has become increasingly popular. And now we are talking about bodybuilding lovers. With professionals, the situation is completely different and we will not touch on this topic. Testosterone was the first steroid created by the scientist. It is quite obvious that it has been studied better than other drugs.
In addition, these drugs are quite high safety and at the same time universal. You can use testosterone esters, both during the period of mass gain, and for drying. Add to all the above, low cost, availability. No other modern AAS can be such an effective basis for an anabolic cycle.
Positive qualities of testosterone
- Effectively stabilizes androgen type receptors. The complex resulting from the interaction of dough molecules with receptors is highly stable.
- Improves the work of the joint-ligamentous apparatus. During steroid use, the production of synovial fluid is accelerated.
- The total amount of blood in the body increases due to the acceleration of red blood cell synthesis processes. This leads to a strong pumping effect and an improvement in venous muscle tracing.
- Aromatization. This process, when controlled, helps to improve athletic performance.
- Strong anti-catabolic activity. Testosterone molecules can block the cortisol receptor.
- The number of adrenergic receptors in the cellular structures of muscle tissue is increasing. This process is observed with prolonged use of the steroid.
- Glycogen stores are replenished faster.
- The concentration of insulin-like factor and growth hormone increases.
- Great for athletes of all skill levels.
- Accelerates the processes of muscle tissue hypertrophy and increases strength parameters.
- Positive effect on the psycho-emotional state of the athlete.
You simply cannot find a more effective steroid. This is especially obvious if you evaluate all drugs in terms of risk-effectiveness ratio.
Side effects of Testosterone and ways to deal with them
Let’s start with the most significant side effect – suppressing the production of endogenous male hormone. As a result, atrophy of testicles, a decrease in the quality of seminal fluid is possible. Although this side effect does not necessarily appear on the cycle, it is worth remembering about it.
This side effect is much more common and can cause the development of gynecomastia. We recommend that you test for estrogen levels every four days. However, many athletes determine a significant increase in the concentration of the female hormone by itching in the nipple and the appearance of edema on the body. To combat this side effect, aromatase inhibitors are required – exemestane, letrozole or anastrozole. we recommend starting to use any of these antiestrogens from the beginning of the cycle in the amount of 0.5 tablets twice a week. This is a preventative dosage.
Increased dihydrotestosterone concentration
This side effect appears only in those athletes whose body naturally has a high concentration of 5-alpha reductase. As a result of increased levels of dihydrotestosterone, androgenic side effects may occur. To eliminate them, use finasteride in accordance with the instructions.
How to choose testosterone ester?
- Athletes with a high sensitivity to estrogen should opt for a dough mix – Sustanon or Omnadren.
- If the aromatase level in the body is not naturally high, you can use long testosterone esters and an aqueous suspension of the hormone.
- With a high concentration of 5-alpha reductase, it is worth stopping the choice of testosterone suspension or propionate.
- If the genetic characteristics of the body described above are not there, then you can safely experiment with any ether of the male hormone. We recommend starting with enanthate or propionate.
Propic is a short ester and to a lesser extent promotes an increase in estrogen or dihydrotestosterone levels. The suspension has a rather high aromatization, but weakly interacts with 5-alpha reductase. The mixes of the dough are well balanced and have a moderate ability to flavor. But they are more likely to convert to dihydrotestosterone, as they contain prolonged esters.
Recommended Dosages of Testosterone
- The weekly dosage of prolonged preparations and mixes can be from 0.25 to 1 gram.
- Testosterone propionate can be administered every day or every other day in an amount of 0.1 grams.
- The daily dose of the suspension is from 50 milligrams to 0.1 grams.
If you do not know the features of your hormonal system, then start using the dough with the lowest doses. Although steroids are one of the most affordable in the modern market of sports pharmacology, not every bodybuilder can afford to experiment with various AAS. It is in this situation that it is worthwhile to dwell on solo testosterone cycles. The saved financial resources can be used to improve the quality of food, the acquisition of sports food, etc.
