Testosterone Phenylpropionate is one of the esterified forms of testosterone. It is something between propionate and cypionate (enanthate). Very often preparations based on phenylpropionate are preferred by athletes who wish to reduce the frequency of injections or get rid of the effects of frequent injections.
Testosterone is the main male sex hormone produced by Leydig cells and the adrenal cortex (in women – by the ovaries). In itself, the substance is inactive,and practically does not interact with androgen receptors until the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme is converted to dihydrotestosterone. The steroid is active for 4-5 days . In terms of its effect on the body, phenylpropionate is no different from any other form of testosterone. Most often it is used in courses “drying”, the effect can be compared with the action of propionate.
Course of testosterone phenylpropionate
For beginners, a steroid may well remain the only one on the course. You can start with a minimum dosage. The first course of testosterone phenylpropionate may well be limited to 100 milligrams of active substance every 3 days for 4-6 weeks . Small dosages give the opportunity to feel the reaction of the body and avoid side effects. Experienced athletes often increase dosage. But at the same time, to prevent the development of estrogenic effects, you should take anti-estrogens (for example, Proviron) or aromatase inhibitors. As a post-treatment therapy, Tamoxifen is excellent. At the end of the course, it is advisable to start taking cortisol blockers : this will save muscle mass, avoiding the phenomenon of recoil. Correctly selected sports nutrition will strengthen the effect.
NDICATIONS FOR USE OF THE DRUG TESTOSTERONE DECANOATE
Indications for the use of the drug testosterone decanoate are:
Testosterone Decanoate is indicated for the treatment of men who require hormone replacement therapy. In particular, the agent is indicated for the treatment of symptoms of male menopause, impotence, male infertility, which manifests itself as a consequence of disorders of spermatogenesis. Also used when there is a shortage of androgens in the body.
The drug is often used by athletes in combination with other steroids in order to increase muscle mass and endurance.
Women are undesirable to use this remedy, since there is a risk of developing virilization.
CONTRAINDICATIONS TO THE USE OF TESTOSTERONE DECANOATE
Contraindications to the use of the drug testosterone decanoate are:
Testosterone Decanoate should not be used in cases of severe liver and kidney disease, nephrosis, diabetes, oncological diseases of the breast or prostate, prostatic hypertrophy, atherosclerosis and other serious diseases.
TESTOSTERONE DECANOATE – INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
When prescribing a drug, it is taken into account that it is a means of prolonged action. Therefore, it is often not necessary to inject it. As a rule, the administration of the solution is carried out once every 7-10 days. Dosage, depending on the disease, appoints a specialist.
Athletes take Testosterone Decanoate in a dose of 200-600 mg, it is also possible to combine it with other anabolic steroids.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate (NPP)
Nandrolone phenylpropionate , also known under the brand name Durabolin , has an active substance – nandrolone. Nandrolone phenylpropionate has a shorter half-life (2-4 days) than nandrolone decanoate or Deca (7-10 days). That is why nandrolone phenylpropionate acts shorter than “Deca”.
Dosage and Administration
As already noted above, nandrolone phenylpropionate has a fairly short half-life, therefore it becomes necessary to administer the drug more often – at least twice a week. Usually injections are performed every 3-4 days. The average dosage is 25-100 mg per injection. The total weekly dosage of nandrolone usually does not exceed 300-400 mg per week. Nandrolone phenylpropionate is almost always combined with other steroids to create a synergistic effect, with the dosage of nandrolone decreasing.
Courses: Nandrolone phenylpropionate is often combined with turinabol, methandrostenolone, vinstrol, testosterone propionate, masterone. Often, 3 drugs are combined simultaneously, for example: turinabol + nandrolone phenylpropionate + vinstrol (it is better not to use several oral medications at the same time and at test periods of more than 4-5 weeks ALWAYS use testosterone, at least in small dosages), with the total dosage of steroids decreasing.
Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca Durabolin)
COURSE DECA-DURABOLIN (MEN)
To achieve a general anabolic effect, initial dosing recommendations of 50-100 mg were recommended every 3-4 weeks for 12 weeks. For the treatment of renal anemia, the recommended dose was 100-200 mg per week. The usual dose for sports purposes lies in the range of 200-600 mg per week, with cycles of 8 to 12 weeks. This level is sufficient for measurable success in the collection of muscle mass and strength in most users. It is often claimed that Nandrolone decanoate has the maximum effect (best benefit / side effects ratio) at doses of 2 mg per kilogram of weight weekly, although this dosage is most likely to be affected by individual differences in users. Deca is not a very fast “builder” of muscles.
The effect of muscle building with this drug is quite noticeable, but not very fast. In general, the drug is about twice as effective as testosterone.
To enhance the effect, Nandrolone decanoate is often combined with other steroids. With the combination of Nandrolone decanoate in a dose of 200-400 mg per week and Winstrol at a dose of 10-20 mg daily, there is a significant improvement in the appearance of the musculature and an increase in the relief when dieting / drying.
Strong non- aromatizing androgens, such as Halotestin® or Trenbolone, can also be used , which will provide an increased level of hardness and muscle density.
Being a moderately strong muscle builder, Nandrolone can also be included in weight gain cycles. The classic combination of Deca and D-bol (usually 200-400 mg of Nandrolone decanoate per week and 15-25 mg of Dianabolper day) has been the main bodybuilding for decades, and provides a noticeable muscle gain. More powerful androgens, such as Anadrol 50® or testosterone, can also be used, but with their use, a large water retention will occur.
