Boldenone is not among the strongest steroids ever created. In fact, we may be far from anabolic steroids like trenbolone or dianabol. It has relatively low anabolic activity compared to other anabolics or even testosterone.
With very similar effects to testosterone, boldenone increases protein synthesis, dramatically increases nitrogen retention in muscles (makes the environment more anabolic), inhibits glucocorticoid hormones that break down muscle mass (like cortisol) and dramatically increases IGF-1 levels in the body.
Moreover, boldenone has a characteristic that increases the number of red blood cells in the body. An excessive increase in red blood cells is not beneficial, but this is only seen with high doses of boldenone and very long term use. For most users, a small increase in these cells is beneficial for performance enhancement, as red blood cells are responsible for increasing oxygen levels in body tissues.
It has an excellent ability to increase appetite, which will allow you to eat better. Despite this remarkable effect, some people SHOW NO change in their hunger, which leads us to believe that it may be a very individual effect.
Boldenone is used for bulking (increasing muscle mass) and should be used in combination with other more anabolic steroids like Deca-Durabolin.
It provides stronger gains and much less water retention (mainly because it has less flavor). The increase achieved with boldenone does not appear overnight, especially since it is a long ester steroid, i.e. it must be used longer to obtain satisfactory results.
Another important benefit of boldenone is increased strength, which can be beneficial for both mass gains (muscle gain) and lean body mass (muscle definition), as you will have lower levels of strength due to of calorie restriction. Precisely because it promotes a good increase in strength, it lies in the fact that it can be used by athletes of different modalities.
When cutting, it is only used as a way to help prevent muscle loss because the low calorie diet can do that.
However, the increased appetite in some people may make it an “uncomfortable” steroid during this time.
It is also used during this period to reduce fluid retention. At this stage, it is usually combined with other steroids such as Primobolan or Masteron, as well as testosterone of course.
Standard Equipoise doses are usually between 200 and 400 mg per week. Most men will find 400mg to be very well tolerated and generally the minimum amount of EQ they will want to use. Many will also find that 600mg per week is very well tolerated and side effects are very manageable. However, such doses increase estrogenic potential. Due to the long term potency of the steroid, most men can easily get by with one injection per week, but splitting the weekly dose into 2-3 smaller injections will reduce the total injection volume. Additionally, some have reported that side effects are still easier to control with fewer and more frequent injections, despite the extremely long half-life.
Regardless of the total dose, Equipoise should be used for at least 8 weeks. This is a very common runtime in cutting cycles. Many cutting plans start with 8 weeks of trim with an additional 4-8 weeks without hormones or non-flavoring agents. In the off-season, 8 weeks will again be the minimum, but most will find 12 weeks much more effective. Whether bulking or cutting, you will find Equipoise to be an extremely versatile anabolic steroid that pairs well with all anabolic steroids.
For women, the standard dose is 50 mg of Equipoise per week. Virilization can be avoided at this dose, but will largely depend on sensitivity. Some women can tolerate 75-100mg per week, but should not attempt this dosage until they have learned to take 50mg per week. Most women will also find that 6-week Equipoise cycles last as long as they want, with occasional 8-week runs for those who tolerate the hormone well.
Post Cycle PCT Therapy
PCT (post cycle therapy) is recovery after a steroid cycle. After the end of the course, it is necessary to minimize the loss of muscle mass and restore your natural level of testosterone.
The main objective of PCT is the elimination of possible side effects due to the intake of stimulants and corrective medications. In addition, Post Cycle Therapy allows you to achieve:
- restore natural hormone secretion to normal levels;
- stabilization of the hormonal background;
- avoid gynecomastia;
- prevents catabolic processes and saves the result: relief, mass of muscle tissue and its density;
- neutralize the harmful effects on the sex glands, prevent their atrophy and prevent the development of oligospermia.
Like most AAS, Balance has a very strong inhibitory effect on natural testosterone production. Therefore, due to the fact that balance courses are very long (14-16 weeks), a responsible approach to planning the course of administration and post-course therapy is necessary. HCGenerate ES and Clomid will help maintain stable hormonal balance and prevent sexual problems.
Post cycle therapy requires careful and skillful riding. Therefore, in order to avoid health problems, despite the abundance of information on the Internet, you need to constantly interact with an andrologist and other specialists. Only strict compliance with its recommendations will allow you to maintain health, good humor and daily activity.
With a well-executed PCT under the supervision of a specialist, you will receive:
- Maximum preservation of the result (strength and muscle mass), with a minimal recoil phenomenon;
- Restoration of natural (natural) hormone levels;
- Prevention of gynecomastia (aromatization of testosterone to estradiol);
- Stimulation of the production of your own testosterone;
- Exclusion (reduction) of the development of other side effects associated with the use of anabolic steroids.
