Anabolic Steroids: Decide for yourself?
One of the articles I recently posted was on natural (everyday substances) testosterone masking agents. Wine, green tea and white tea, were found to have some masking abilities when tested. As mentioned, the breaking news of Lance Armstrong using steroids and being stripped of his 7 titles has headlined sports news and the effects are even more damaging.
The topic on Steroids has been brought up often in the past 10 years. It seems each year a new sports figure is found using them. Commercials, informing the public, of the dangers of using steroids have become more popular but share only the worst case scenario. Before I continue, keep in mind, I believe in getting results naturally, without the use of steroids or any other performance enhancing drug(s). However, I also believe a person should have accurate information and then have free choice on how to act. If you have a strong diet, challenge yourself every time you train and live a healthy life style, results will come to you. There is no greater feeling than not only reaching your maximum potential but then sustaining it! However, Let’s better define the process and affects.
Anabolic steroids are the synthetic (man-made) derivatives of the male sex hormone, testosterone. Anabolic steroids are used to increase muscle size, body mass, strength, and speed of recovery. Corticosteroids are mistaken for anabolic steroids when they are actually used to buffer overactive immune responses and reduce swelling. Both men and women naturally produce testosterone. If testosterone is taken or injected in its natural state, rapid degradation occurs making them mostly ineffective. For this reason, anabolic steroids must be chemically modified for the most effective anabolic and androgenic response.
First dramatic reports of anabolic steroid use came during the 1954 world lifting championship. By 1960 use of anabolic steroids spread to other Olympic sports. Presently, hype and drama of steroid use is pervasive in professional sports. However, steroids are also used by many who are outside of organized sports. A national survey was conducted among high school seniors. The survey showed that 7% of respondents were using or had used steroids. One-third of the admitted users were not involved in school sponsored sports and more than one-fourth were using to improve appearance as opposed to athletic performance.
Most people who use anabolic steroids do so in a cyclic pattern of several weeks or months alternated with periods of discontinued use. The dosage is usually increased throughout the cycle. On average, a typical cycle lasts about 5-10weeks. Often, other anabolic drugs are introduced concurrently. This process is referred to as a “stacking” regimen. “Stacking” is believed to increase the potency of the anabolic agents. The most effective delivery method is intramuscularly injection (usually through the gluteus). There are some versions of the drug that can be delivered orally but these are less effective. Depending on the type of injectable steroid being used, it may stay in circulation approximately one day (Testosterone propionate) to a few months (Testosterone Buciclate) after a single injection.
Adverse effects further explained: There are many negative effects but the majority of them are temporary if all protocols are followed. One or two cycles should not cause many of the listed side effects. However, those with an addictive personality, skewed personal body image, lacking proper guidance on the matter, or do not realize the presence of the aforementioned conditions can end up getting into trouble. In most cases, the really damaging effects occur when people do not properly cycle or begin to rely on the anabolic agent too heavily. Many don’t realize that the majority of people will never be happy with their body. Each person believes they can look a little better. What starts off with one cycle, many times becomes several more cycles thus leading to serious adverse effects. Benefits further explained: The short term use of steroids, may have a few more benefits since the adverse effects are not as prevalent. However, in short term use, the concern is more on will the person be able to only complete 1 cycle? When hormones are out of balance, mental stability can be more vulnerable. The draw backs of Long term steroid use can be in some cases so debilitating that they should never be used. However, in the competitive world of sports the potential benefits of steroid use can be difficult to forego. Athletes have to train and compete day in and day out. Reducing the amount of time the body is in a catabolic state (breaking down) by decreasing cortisol levels allows for a maximum anabolic state (building of) by increasing testosterone levels. In short, the body is able to train at a higher intensity for a longer duration of time as well as recover in a shorter amount of time. Of course, in the end this leads to increased muscle size, performance and strength.

I am looking for a cycle that is going to give me good strength gains, but not make me balloon and full of water. Putting on a lot of weight is not really that important to me. I want to become ripped and have awesome muscle definition. Is this a good cycle to do that with? Also how major are the side effects of this cycle and how much of the gains will i loose after the cycle ? Any other ideas for a good cycle for what I want?
I am really afraid of getting gynecomastia and I had read some posts that say to take anti-estrogens (such as Nolvadex) during the cycle and some say you only need it at the end. What is recommend?
I was originally considering Deca-Durabolin – nandrolone decanoate – -Durabolin and Sustanon, but after reading a lot I felt like it would get make me massive and loose muscle definition.
I am 6’2″ 180 lbs. Bench 205. Squat 285.
Please help I have spent many hours reading, but feel like I don’t know enough to be able to do a cycle as safely as possible. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

To begin with I would say that at 6’2″ and 180 lbs you should look at packing on some more muscle mass. I’m also 6’2″ and I am 250 lbs with 14% bodyfat (and dropping).
I like your idea of staying away from the heavily aromatising anabolic steroids. IMO they give a false impression of your true growth while on. I think Equipoise – boldenone undecylenate – is good idea (I am currently using it @ 600mg/pw), but run it for 16 weeks instead of 10. The muscle gain is slow, but it is of good quality. Instead of Test testosterone propionate, I use Test Enanthate. I am currently using 500mg/pw. If you want use testosterone propionate then up your dosage to 600mg/pw, 200mg EOD. To keep the bloat away I use the anabolic steroids Mastabol (Masteron in some countries). It is a very good drug for displacing estrogen and hardening the physique. I use it at a dose of 600mg/pw. 200mg EOD. You can combine the testosterone propionate and Mastabol in the same syringe. I have not found it necessary to use an aromatase inhibitor’s at this stage.
I also use 80mcgs of IGF-1 ED post workout. It is also a VERY good product for lean gains.
I hope that helps.
Re: Equipoise/Testosterone Propionate Cycle – Looking for awesome muscle definition
Thats what I ran and to tell you the truth, its all bread and butter when your on cycle. but when you come off is a different story. Like, idk man, these aren’t the compounds that you cut with especially at that high of a dose. at least not for me. Equipoise – boldenone undecylenate – is good, testosterone propionate is test and test makes you bring in water period. Run something else like trenbolone or Winstrol – stanozolol if you want a shreded look..

Test testosterone propionate, for me as well as may others, does not make me hold water like testosterone enanthate or testosterone cypionate does. Most bloat can be combated with an aromatase inhibitor too.

I will be doing something very similar and can offer some comments.
I want to add a solid 10 pounds of muscle with little water and sides. My mix over 10 weeks will be: – Test p 50 mg eod. with – Equipoise – boldenone undecylenate – 100 mg eod. with – T-bol 20 mg ED – HGH 1.25 iu eod – a-dex 0.5 MWF
I think your cycle will give you some muscle, but at your heigth and body weight you’ll be disappointed. testosterone enanthate and Deca-Durabolin – nandrolone decanoate – might be better to get some results a bit more massive.
In any case, PCT – post cycle therapy – will prevent some loss, but not all.
And I’d use a-dex to prevent any gynecomastia.

Testosterone Propionate 100 is an injectable steroid made by Dragon Pharma Europe, its active substance is Testosterone Propionate. Testosterone Propionate is similar to enanthate, cypionate, and sustanon. However, compared to enanthate or cypionate, propionate is a much shorter ester and will release more quickly into the bloodstream. As a result of its short action, more frequent (daily) injections are required to prevent steroid blood levels from tapering down and becoming ineffective. An injection schedule of every third day is about the longest you would want to perform using propionate to achieve good results. For best results – daily injections are more suitable given the nature of this agent. Peak propionate levels take place after 24-36 hours and taper down from there. As a result of the frequency of injections required of propionate, it is not a very attractive steroid for those who are doing their first cycle or those who do not like intra-muscular injections to begin with. For a first cycle, a longer acting, single ester testosterone such as enanthate or cypionate or preferred because in both cases few injections can be made while maintaining stable blood levels and thereby optimizing results. Respectively, enanthate should be injected twice weekly and cypionate once weekly. Since both yield similar results, the first time user would more likely enjoy either of those two compounds over propionate. The benefits of Testosterone Propionate 100 may not be worth the additional energy required for the injections. Testosterone Propionate 100 is also a relatively painful steroid to inject with uses complaining that the same spots become aggravated with additional injections which require injecting in several different places for prevention of this pain. The injection site may become irritated and users have complained of long lasting pain caused by the injections. For these reasons, Testosterone Propionate 100 is not such a good idea for the first time steroid user, however, enanthate and cypionate are not without their share of complications and all factors should be assessed before beginning with any steroid cycle. If Testosterone Propionate 100 is the steroid of choice, ancillary drugs such as Nolvadex, Proviron and Arimidex are advised to have on hand during the cycle in case symptoms of gyno arise (or if you wish, you can run these drugs during the cycle for prevention). All testosterones will aromatize, although some have a lesser chance of it. Testosterone Propionate 100 may be one of those drugs, but proper precautions should be taken, nevertheless. Testosterone Propionate 100 has a short active life of 2-3 days. It has a short half life and is active in the system only a day after injection. Testosterone Propionate 100 is one of the componenets of the four testosterone ester blend Sustanon, and, along with Phenylpropionate, is the reason why more frequent injections are required with Sustanon (to take full advantage of all esters in the blend). Testosterone Propionate 100 has the same benefits of every other testosterone along with the advantage of being fast acting. Another advantage of Testosterone Propionate 100 when compared to other steroids is that the level of water retention and water based gains on cycle are lower when compared to counterparts such as Testosterone Enanthate or Testosterone Cypionate. The benefits of testosterone, such as improved muscle pumps can be seen very soon after propionate is administered due to its short half life and related length of activation.
As a short-lived oil based injectable, most will want to opt for doses of 50 – 100 mg every day to every other day. Those of a lighter stature seeking to use it for cutting purposes may want to make that every 2nd or 3rd day, or add Proviron as a precaution instead, 50 – 100 mg/day sufficing in most cases. The site of injection is best rotated each time, or problem can occur. The compound is irritative and the damage to the skin and underlying tissue can cause some cosmetic problems if it becomes repetitive. Subcutaneously. balls of fat or tissue can build up. In most cases these need to surgically removed. So rotating is wise. For bulking purposes one is best to stack testosterone with a base compound such as Deca Durabolin or Equipoise, and can addition Dianabol or Anadrol for 5 – 6 weeks, at the beginning, to kickstart the gains a bit. Most will choose for a more user-friendly, longer-acting testosterone for bulking purposes however. For cutting, the best and primary addition is that of Proviron, which will reduce if not stop estrogen build-up, increase muscle hardness and strength and allow for a higher free testosterone level. But naturally other compounds lend themselves quite well too. Base compounds such as Equipoise or Primobolan making a good match for longer stacks, and towards contest time steroids such as Anavar, Trenbolone or Winstrol make the best matches, as they too will help increase muscle hardness and decrease body-fat, while maintaining lean muscle mass. With testosterone, most any combination is possible. Because testosterone is always the stronger compound in a stack. In terms of ancillaries, the use of anti-estrogens is advised. For cutting puposes one will want to run Proviron alongside the testosterone for the length of the stack, which will rarely make the use of other anti-estrogens a necessity. If no Proviron or Arimidex is used, you may want to keep some Nolvadex handy. Should problems arise starting on 20 – 40 mg of Nolvadex until a while after problems subside should be sufficient for all intents and purposes. Testosterone, being a heavily aromatizing compound, is also quite suppressive of natural testosterone so a post-cycle therapy with Nolva/Clomid and HCG is necessary. Usually one will start HCG the last week or two weeks of a stack and run it about 4 weeks. HCG shots of 1500 – 3000 IU given every 5th or 6th day. That means during the end of a cycle, one shot of HCG is given per two shots of testosterone. A user should also opt to wait on using clomid or Nolvadex until the androgen is cleared. For longer esters that was 1.5 to 2 weeks, obviously that time-frame should be reduced to 1 week or even half a week for propionate. One will then start on either 40-50 mg of Nolvadex or 150 mg of Clomid per day for a period of two weeks, and then follow it up with 20-25 mg of Nolvadex or 100 mg of Clomid per day for another two weeks. Post-cycle therapy will facilitate the return of natural testosterone and make it more likely for the user to retain most of the mass he gained while on the cycle.
Since Testosterone Propionate 100 is indeed simply another form of injectable testosterone, the side effects associated with it are for the most part those commonly encountered with any type of testoserone compound. For more specific information about these, including those that may effect women. Far more than the other testosterone esters, for the possible exception of Sustanon, users of Testosterone Propionate 100 will often complain of injection site irratation and swelling. Some individuals find that the reaction that they experience with the ester is so bad in fact that they will have to cease administration of the compound. As well, due to the frequent injections of the compound and the possibility of injection site irritation, it is advisible that users rotate injection sites as frequently as possible so that no complications arise. Some users also anecdotally report that they are much more likely to experience low grade fevers when using Testosterone Propionate 100 in comparison to other testosterone compounds. This symptom will usually only persist for a few days to a week or more, but can sometimes last far longer. As should be expected with an ester such as Propionate, suppression of endogenous testosterone production will occur quite soon after the intial administration of the drug. The usual protocal of post-cycle therapy and possibly the use of human chorionic gonadotropin during the cycle should be followed, but no special considerations need to be taken into account because of this.
