Primobolan is very limited in its use, with its primary restrictions being that of its use in cutting cycles and phases of fat loss. This is due to Primobolan’s weak anabolic strength rating, and it is because of this poor anabolic strength that Primobolan doses must be run in the higher range in comparison to the majority of anabolic steroids. This leads to one of the reasons as to why Primobolan would not be utilized for bulking or lean mass addition, as the Primobolan doses required for such an anabolic effect would be astronomical. This is why Primobolan is often stacked with other more powerful compounds. Even when utilized in a cutting cycle, which is a period in which anabolic steroids are run at lower than normal doses, Primobolan must still be utilized at a fairly high dose range. The use of anabolic steroids at lower doses during cutting or fat loss phases is due to the fact that during periods of fat loss in which the user is in a caloric deficit, the primary concern with such a goal is the preservation of muscle mass rather than the addition of new mass. As a result, anabolic steroids during cutting cycles do not require mass-building or bulking doses what so ever. Primobolan doses are somewhat of an exception here, where it must be used at a higher dose in order to overcome its unfortunately poor anabolic strength rating.
Medical Primobolan Dosage
Medical prescription guidelines for Primobolan doses can be broken apart into two categories: 1. Oral Primobolan doses, and, 2. Injectable Primobolan doses.
1. Injectable Primobolan (Methenolone Enanthate): Medical prescription guidelines for the injectable variant of Primobolan called for an initial dose of 200mg, followed by 100mg weekly for the duration of therapy. Depending on the medical condition being treated, Primobolan doses can land anywhere in the range of 100mg every 1 – 2 weeks or 200mg every 2 – 3 weeks. There exist no separate medical dosing guidelines for female patients.
2. Oral Primobolan (Methenolone Acetate): Medical prescription guidelines for the oral variant of Primobolan were that of 100 – 150mg per day for no longer than a 6 – 8 week period. Just as with the injectable Primobolan prescription guidelines, there are no separate instructions for female Primobolan doses.
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced Primobolan Dosages
For the purpose of performance and physique enhancement, Primobolan doses, as previously mentioned must be run at what would be considered a very high dose in comparison to the majority of other anabolic steroids .
1. Injectable Primobolan (Methenolone Enanthate): Beginner Primobolan users will normally find 400mg per weeky Primobolan doses to be sufficient enough to assist the user in achieving their goals. There is seldom ever any need for beginners to venture above 400mg weekly due to the initial use and allowing the individual to gather a feel for the drug’s effectiveness. Intermediate Primobolan doses will land in the range of 400 – 700mg weekly, often being run closer to the higher end of 700mg weekly. Intermediate users will find Primobolan’s anabolic strength quite weak in comparison to other anabolic steroids, and must be utilized at higher doses in order to see any physique/performance changes exclusive to Primo. Advanced users will often end up utilizing Primobolan doses in the range of 800 – 1,000mg per week or greater. For the purpose of preservation of lean mass during a cutting cycle, Primobolan doses do not need to be run this high but on average, these are the doses required to elicit noticeable lean mass increases from a weak anabolic steroid such as Primobolan. However, when run at the appropriate dose range for such effects, Primobolan can put up a display as one of the most impressive anabolic steroids where lean mass addition is concerned.
Female users will find physique and performance enhancing Primobolan dosages in the range of 50 – 100mg weekly without issues of virilization side effects and symptoms. The injectable format of Primobolan, however, has a lower rate of use among females in comparison to the oral variant due to problems over the control of blood plasma levels of the hormone, and the timing and scheduling of injection administrations to achieve this.
2. Oral Primobolan (Methenolone Acetate ): Beginner Primobolan users will normally find the 50 – 100mg daily range to be an effective dose with oral Primobolan. Intermediate users are known for running oral Primobolan in the range of 100 – 150mg daily with great results, and advanced users will find the range of 150 – 200mg daily to be quite effective. The oral variant of Primobolan is one of two oral anabolic steroids (the other being Andriol which is orally administered Testosterone Undecanoate) that do not present any measure of hepatotoxicity. Therefore, higher doses of oral Primobolan can indeed be utilized but it must be noted that oral Primobolan does still possess a measure of resistance to metabolism and breakdown in the liver, and therefore the risk of hepatotoxicity from Primo must not be completely ignored, especially as Primobolan doses of the oral format are increased to higher and higher amounts.
Female users looking to elicit performance and physique enhancement from oral Primobolan will find comfort and benefit in the 50 – 75mg daily range with very little risk of virilization .
Proper Administration and Timing of Primobolan Dosages
The oral Primobolan variant can be administered once daily and there is no requirement to split doses up into several throughout the day, as the half-life of oral Primobolan is that of approximately 2 – 3 days. Therefore, single daily dosing is acceptable and recommended in order to maintain proper stable steady peak blood plasma levels of the hormone.
The injectable Primobolan preparation holds a half-life of 10 days due to the Enanthate ester attached to Methenolone, and it therefore must be administered twice weekly, with each injection spaced evenly apart from one another. For example, a total weekly dose of 400mg per week would be split into a 200mg injection on Monday, followed by another 200mg injection on Thursday. Although individuals can still ‘get by’ with a single weekly injection. twice weekly injections are ideal and reccomended in order to maintain stable and steady peak blood plasma levels.
Expectations and Results From Primobolan Dosages
Primobolan is a very weak anabolic steroid and therefore impressive lean muscle and mass gains with Primobolan should not be expected. Even higher and higher doses of Primo will not elicit the same types of lean mass gain that a miniscule dose of a very powerful anabolic steroid like Trenbolone would provide, for example.
Therefore, Primobolan is often stacked alongside other anabolic steroids, and many experienced anabolic steroid users would never utilize Primobolan solitarily on its own as it is well known as being a very poor anabolic steroid to be run on its own. With all of this being established, Primobolan’s gains in and of itself is known to be quality lean muscle gains without the added water retention or possible fat gain/retention.
Primo 200 is the injectable version of the steroid methenolone and, although it produces a weaker effect than Deca Durabolin it is a very good basic steroid whose effects are predominantly anabolic. The fact that an enanthate ester is added to this steroid enables a slow and gradual release from the injection site. This addition allows for a longer half-life of approx 14 days (similar to Testosterone Enanthate) although most athletes prefer to administer it on a weekly basis. Primo 200 popularity stems from the fact that it is the only steroid that seems to work well on a low calorie diet (making it a pre-contest drug of choice) and side effects are rarely a problem since it is relatively non toxic, low in androgens and it does not convert to estrogen (aromatize) therefore estrogen related side effects are not an issue. In addition to this it seems to have a positive effect on the immune system (thus its popular use in Aids patients) and the fact that it adds primarily lean mass leads to a strengthening of the whole body system.
HOW DOES IT WORKS?
Primo 200 is commonly used by those who wish to keep oestrogen and androgenic related side effects to a minimum. Primo 200 is also a popular choice for cutting cycles due its mild anabolic properties which may be best suited for sustaining muscle tissue under strict pre-content dieting. Excessive subcutaneous fluids will also not be a concern due to Primo 200 being a non-aromatising steroid. The compound could also be added to bulking cycles to heighten the anabolic nature of the cycle whilst minimising adding to the overall oestrogen and androgenic side effects. Androgenic related side effects are usually only confined to the sensitive individuals, or those who opt to take the larger dosages of the product. Primo 200 is often regarded as a safe steroid in comparison to other products, and it is a very sought after product which reflects in its cost. A dose of 400 mg a week has been shown to provide decent gains, but higher doses are common, with many claiming 600 – 800 mg a week will provide a much better yield in muscle size whilst not causing too much in terms of side effects. As we rise the dose we can expect the androgenic side effects to become more pronounced, so its down to the user to see what dose provides fruitful when weighing up the side effects to net positive gains. Primo 200 is often stacked with other steroids to provide more pleasing results to the user. During a cutting cycle the product could be stacked with a non-aromatising androgen to aid muscle hardness whilst keeping a very defined look with little water retention. Others may find primobolan a nice compound to add to their usual Testosterone course to add to the anabolic nature of the cycle, whilst not adding too much to side effects. This may be useful for those who have found their tolerance dosage with Testosterone but wish to add another compound to their stack to aid gains. Primo 200 displays many favorable characteristics, most which stem from the fact that methenolone does not convert to estrogen. Estrogen linked side effects should therefore not be seen at all when administering this steroid. Sensitive individuals need not worry about developing gynecomastia, nor should they be noticing any water retention with this drug. The increase seen with Primo 200 will be only quality muscle mass, and not the smooth bloat which accompanies most steroids open to aromatization. During a cycle the user should additionally not have much trouble with blood pressure values, as this effect is also related (generally) to estrogen and water retention. At a moderate dosage of 100 – 200 mg weekly, Primo 200 should also not interfere with endogenous testosterone levels as much as when taking an injectable nandrolone or testosterone. This is very welcome, as the athlete should not have to be as concerned with ancillary drugs when the steroid is discontinued (a less extreme hormonal crash). At higher doses strong testosterone suppression may be noticed however, as all steroids can act to suppress testosterone production at a given dosage. Here of course an ancillary drug regimen may be indicated. It is most popular for male bodybuilders to stack Primo 200 with other steroids in order to obtain a faster and more enhanced effect. During a dieting or cutting phase, a non-aromatizing androgen like Halotestin or Trenbolone can be added. The strong androgenic component should help to bring about an added density and hardness to the muscles. On the other hand we could add Winstrol, another mild anabolic steroid. The result of this combination should again be a notable increase of muscle mass and hardness, but in this case the gain should not be accompanied by greatly increased side effects. As mentioned earlier, Primo 200 is also used effectively during bulking phases of training. The addition of testosterone, Dianabol or Anadrol 50 would prove quite effective for adding new muscle mass. Of course we would have to deal with estrogenic side effects, but in such cases Primo 200 should allow the user to take a much lower dosage of the more “toxic” drug and still receive acceptable results.
Side effects in general are usually not much of a problem with Primo 200. There is a chance to notice a few residual androgenic effects such as oily skin, acne, increased facial/body hair growth or an aggravation of male pattern baldness condition. This steroid is still very mild however, and such problems are typically dose related. Women will in fact find this preparation mild enough to use in most cases, observing it to be a very comfortable and effective anabolic. Primo 200 is actually considered to be one of the safest anabolic steroids available. Steroid novices, older athletes or those sensitive to side effects would undoubtedly find it a very favorable drug to use. The typical “safe” dosage for men is 100 – 200 mg per week, a level that should produce at least some noticeable muscle growth.
