During the 1960’s Testosterone Propionate would lose a lot of its popularity in favor of the larger ester base Testosterone Cypionate and Testosterone Enanthate compounds. However, it is still used medicinally today as well as by many performance athletes. You will find more of it among the latter group than anywhere else. Many performance enhancing athletes actually believe the Propionate form will lead to less water retention than the dominating large ester forms of Testosterone. For this reason, it is often the preferred form of testosterone during cutting cycles. While this is the common belief it is also a misconception. Regardless of the testosterone form the hormone does not become active in the body until the ester detaches and then the hormone is released. Regardless of the ester originally attached to the hormone you still have the same testosterone hormone in the body once the ester is removed. So where does this myth come from? Common sense tells us that when running a cutting cycle the individual will consume a calorie restricted diet, one that is often healthier and with less of an abundance in carbohydrates. As a result the individual will hold less water. Then we have the fact that many often use less testosterone when dieting and if your total dose is less than an off-season dose there’s less active hormone available to promote water retention. All in all, you can receive the same benefits with Testosterone Propionate as all testosterone forms. However, an advantage of Testosterone Propionate is that it can be easier to maintain stable and peaked blood levels of the hormone due to the very frequent injection protocol compared to large ester bases.
Outside of performance enhancement, Testosterone Propionate has found a number of therapeutic uses. However, like all testosterone forms the treatment of male androgen deficiency such as low testosterone has always been the most common point of use. Testosterone Propionate has, however, also found other points of interesting use over the years in treating menopausal issues, chronic cystic mastitis, excessive lactation and endometriosis. This was for a decent amount of time the most commonly used testosterone for female medical treatment, but it has largely been removed from U.S. FDA approval in female patients. It is still approved for male use in the U.S. but it will be found in medicinal circles more commonly in other parts of the world. However, Cypionate and Enanthate remain the dominate forms worldwide leaving Propionate to be primarily use in performance circles.
Testosterone Propionate Functions & Traits:
Testosterone Propionate is a pure testosterone hormone. Although synthetic it is a perfect replica of the primary naturally produced male androgen testosterone. By design, the hormone is attached to the Propionate (propionic acid) ester, a small/short ester that enables the hormone’s release time to be controlled. Without an ester, the hormone would disperse and dissipate rapidly post administration. By attaching the ester, this promotes a controlled release and allows the individual to inject the hormone less frequently. Once Testosterone Propionate is injected, the ester slowly begins to detach from the hormone. As the ester is detached the testosterone hormone begins to release into the blood. The half-life of Testosterone Propionate is approximately two days, which is substantially longer than ester free testosterone, which carries a half-life a little less than 24 hours.
As a pure testosterone, Testosterone Propionate carries an anabolic rating of 100 and an androgenic rating of 100 as well. The testosterone hormone itself represents the basis by which all anabolic and androgenic ratings are measured in all anabolic steroids. More importantly, while carrying these structural ratings, its translating rating matches up perfectly. Testosterone Propionate will yield a notable amount of anabolic and androgenic activity. This is important as not all steroids match their structural ratings in a translating capacity.
Although synthetic in nature, Testosterone Propionate is an efficient hormone for the treatment of low testosterone. Testosterone is an essential hormone produced by men and women that affects our physical, mental and sexual wellbeing. While produced and essential for both sexes, men require approximately ten times that of women. If you suffer from low testosterone and more than 20 million men in the U.S. suffer from some type of androgen deficiency, Testosterone Propionate will remedy the problem. However, while effective, after all, it is testosterone, it is not a preferred form of treatment as it will require frequent injections. Testosterone Cypionate and Testosterone Enanthate remain the dominant forms in treatment plans. However, if you suffer and Testosterone Propionate is what’s available it is a suitable option.
There are numerous symptoms associated with low testosterone. The symptoms themselves are not life threatening but they severally diminish your quality of life. More importantly, when the condition is ignored it can be an open doorway to many far more serious conditions, some of which are life threatening. The symptoms of low testosterone include:
- Loss of Libido (can refer to partial or total loss)
- Erectile Dysfunction (inability to maintain or obtain and erection)
- Loss of Muscle Mass (despite diet & exercise)
- Loss of Strength (despite diet & exercise)
- Increased Body Fat (despite diet & exercise)
- Loss of Mental Clarity
- Decreased Ability to Focus
- Decreased Energy
- Weakened Immune System
Regular administration of Testosterone Propionate will remedy every last symptom on this list if it is due to low testosterone. In the early stages of low testosterone you may not display too many symptoms. Many men initially display one of the sexually related most commonly and perhaps one more from the list. However, while the sexually related symptoms are the most common it is possible to suffer from low testosterone without such symptoms initially. As time goes by, if ignored the symptoms will begin to mount. If continually ignored low testosterone can in part promote several far more concerning conditions including:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Heart Disease
When compounds like Testosterone Propionate can so easily remedy a low testosterone condition, there really is no excuse for living with the problem. There are possible side effects to use, but keep in mind this is merely testosterone a hormone your body is well accustomed to. For the low level patient, while there are possible side effects of Testosterone Propionate very few men will have a problem.
While a perfect replica of the primary male androgen, treating low testosterone is not the only functional trait provided by Testosterone Propionate. This is a highly versatile anabolic steroid and high levels of the hormone will enhance several primary anabolic characteristics. When we refer to high levels, this is the realm of performance enhancement. With this type of use, the individual will be taking his testosterone levels far above and beyond what could ever be naturally produced. Through this action, Testosterone Propionate will promote five key steroidal enhancement traits that will serve most any man tremendously well. With this type of use, every man who supplements will enjoy improvements in his life in the same areas as a low level patient. However, it is the tremendous enhancement provided by the five traits that separate and distinguish this type of use. The five primary anabolic traits of Testosterone Propionate include:
- Enhanced Protein Synthesis
- Enhanced Nitrogen Retention
- Increased Red Blood Cell Count
- Increased IGF-1 Output
- Inhibition of Glucocorticoid Hormones
By enhancing protein synthesis, this simply means we enhance the rate by which cells build proteins. Protein representing the primary building block of muscle tissue; this is essential to repair and recovery, which is where anabolic growth is promoted. The promotion of nitrogen will also enhance the anabolic atmosphere as all lean tissue is comprised of approximately 16% nitrogen. When nitrogen levels fall this can lead to a catabolic (muscle wasting) state. Conversely, the more nitrogen we retain the more anabolic we remain.
Then we have the promotion of red blood cells. Red blood cells are responsible for carrying oxygen to and through the blood. Greater blood oxygenation results in greater muscular endurance, enhanced recovery and again promote the anabolic atmosphere. From here we have the promotion of Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1). IGF-1 is a naturally produced protein hormone that is highly anabolic and essential to the body’s recovery and rejuvenation abilities. This is a hormone that affects nearly every cell in the human body and will have a positive impact on muscle tissue, ligaments and tendons, cartilage, and even the central nervous system.
Finally we’re left with inhibition of glucocorticoid or stress hormones. These hormones are necessary to the body’s wellbeing to a degree but they are muscle wasting and fat promoting hormones. Cortisol is the most well-known glucocorticoid and it is very easy for these hormones to become dominant in the body. A dominant atmosphere will lead to the opposite of an anabolic atmosphere. Thankfully compounds like Testosterone Propionate will ensure this doesn’t happen.
Effects of Testosterone Propionate:
For the low testosterone patient, if you supplement with Testosterone Propionate you will suffer no more. This is the primary effect of Testosterone in this regard. Levels were low and now they’re not. Then we have the performance enhancing athlete, and as a versatile anabolic steroid the effects of Testosterone Propionate will cover a wide breadth in this category.
For the off-season athlete there is no anabolic steroid more important or beneficial than testosterone. High levels of testosterone will promote significant increases in lean muscle mass and strength. This is assuming that the individual is consuming adequate calories. Compounds like Testosterone Propionate are not magical, you will still need to feed your body enough calories. During an off-season period of growth, this means total caloric intake will need to be slightly above maintenance. This will, unfortunately, promote body fat gain. However, the key to a successful off-season is gaining lean tissue while minimizing body fat gain to the fullest extent possible. By supplementing with Testosterone Propionate you will be able to achieve this more efficiently. High testosterone levels will promote a stronger metabolic rate. This is not a license to eat like there’s no end in sight, but you should be able to make better use of your calories.
Then we have the cutting phase, and Testosterone Propionate can be invaluable here. In order to lose body fat we must burn more calories than we consume. You can follow the healthiest diet in the world and exercise yourself into the ground but if you are not in a caloric deficit you will not lose body fat. Unfortunately, this necessary caloric deficit puts our lean muscle tissue at risk, especially as we become leaner. The human body does not want to lose body fat due to its survival instinct. As energy demands increase during dieting the body will take what it needs from wherever it wants, and this is often from your muscle tissue. The key to successful dieting is not only losing fat but minimizing muscle tissue low. High testosterone levels will enable you to achieve this efficiently. Without an anabolic protectant like Testosterone Propionate, some lean muscle tissue loss will occur, this is a given. Due to the metabolic enhancement provided by high testosterone levels, the individual will also burn fat at a more efficient rate.
Regardless of your purpose of use, all who supplement with Testosterone Propionate will find their muscular endurance is greatly enhanced. You will not tire out as fast. You will also find your overall rate of recovery is greatly improved, and it is through recovery that progress is made. This makes Testosterone Propionate an excellent steroid for athletes who may not have any bulking or cutting in mind. The increases in endurance and recovery along with improved strength will simply lead to more effective athletic performance
As a therapeutic agent, Masteron enjoyed two decades of success in combating advanced inoperable breast cancer in postmenopausal women. It would also become a popular cutting steroid among bodybuilders, which is where Masteron is currently most commonly found. However, the original Masteron brand is no longer available; in fact, nearly every pharmaceutical brand on earth has been discontinued. This compound is still approved by the U.S. FDA, but it is rarely used in breast cancer treatment any longer in favor of other options. The steroid is, however, still tremendously popular in competitive bodybuilding cycles and often considered essential to contest preparation.
Masteron Functions & Traits:
Drostanolone Propionate is a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) derived anabolic steroid. Specifically, Masteron is the DHT hormone that has been structurally altered by the addition of a methyl group at the carbon 2 position, This protects the hormone from the metabolic breakdown by the 3-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase enzyme, which is found in the skeletal muscle. It also greatly increases the hormone’s anabolic nature. This simple structural change is all it takes to create Drostanolone, and from here the small/short Propionate ester is attached in order to control the hormone’s release time. Drostanolone Enanthate can also be found through some underground labs, which does not have to be injected as frequently, but it is somewhat rare compared to the Propionate version. The majority of all Masteron on the market will be Drostanolone Propionate.
On a functional basis, Masteron is well-known for being one of the only anabolic steroids with strong anti-estrogenic properties. Not only does this steroid carry no estrogenic activity, but it can actually act as an anti-estrogen in the body. This is why it has been effective in the treatment of breast cancer. In fact, the combination of Masteron and Nolvadex (Tamoxifen Citrate) has been shown to be far more effective than chemotherapy in the treatment of inoperable breast cancer in postmenopausal women. This also makes it a popular steroid among bodybuilders as it could actually prohibit the need for an anti-estrogen when used in the right cycle. This will also prove advantageous during the cutting phase due to the hardening effects it can provide.
Masteron carries relatively low anabolic and androgenic ratings; however, these ratings are somewhat misleading. It’s important to remember DHT, the basis of Masteron, is five times more androgenic than testosterone with a much stronger binding affinity to the androgen receptor. This again promotes a harder look and can also enhance fat loss. Most all anabolic steroids are well-noted for enhancing the metabolic rate, but strong androgens have a tendency to directly promote lipolysis.
As an anabolic, Masteron isn’t well-known for promoting gains in lean muscle mass. It has never been used for muscle wasting in a therapeutic sense and will almost always be found in cutting plans among performance athletes. It can, however, promote significant boosts in strength, which could prove beneficial to an athlete who may not necessarily be looking for raw mass.
Effects of Masteron:
Without question, the effects of Masteron will be displayed in the most efficient way during a cutting cycle. However, for the effects to be truly appreciated the individual will need to be extremely lean. This is why the hormone will most commonly be found at the end of bodybuilding contest prep cycles as the individual should already be fairly lean at this stage. The added Masteron will help him lose that last bit of fat that often hangs on for dear life at the end of a cycle. It will also ensure his physique appears as hard as can be. Of course, the anti-estrogenic effect will simply enhance this overall look. For those that are not competitive bodybuilder lean, it is possible that the effects of Masteron may not be all that noticeable. The individual who is under 10% body fat should be able to notice some results and produce a harder, dryer look, but much over 10% and the effects may not be all that pronounced.
As a potent androgen, Masteron can benefit the athlete looking for a boost in strength. This can be a very beneficial steroid for an athlete who is following a calorie restricted diet in an effort to maintain a specific bodyweight necessary for his pursuit. The individual could easily enjoy moderate increases in strength and a slight improvement in recovery and muscular endurance without unwanted body weight gain.
As a bulking agent, the effects of Masteron will prove to be rather week. It is possible the hormone could provide gains in mass similar to Primobolan Depot, which won’t be that strong either, if the total dose was high enough. However, the relative gain in size will be very moderate with many anabolic steroids being far more suited for this period of steroidal supplementation. There are those who may wish to include Masteron in a bulking plan for its anti-estrogenic and fat loss effects. The latter would ensure they kept their body fat gain minimized during off-season bulking phases, but this isn’t reason enough to use it in this phase. Body fat should be controllable without it. As for the anti-estrogenic effects, off-season cycles are normally comprised of large amounts of aromatase activity due to high doses of testosterone. Progesterone activity is also commonly high with the addition of Nandrolone compounds and possible Trenbolone. Consider additional Anadrol or Dianabol and this estrogenic activity can become very pronounced. Unfortunately, while possessing anti-estrogenic effects, Masteron will not be strong enough to combat this level of estrogenic activity.
trenbolone acetate :
Tren Functions & Traits
Tren (all forms) is a 19-nortestosterone (19-nor) anabolic steroid. Tren belongs to the same class of steroids as Nandrolone, 19-nor, which refers to the testosterone hormone lacking the carbon atom at the 19th position. However, with Tren it’s a bit more complex as Tren is simply a modified form of the Nandrolone hormone. Tren is the Nandrolone hormone possessing a double bond at carbons 9 and 11. These double bonds slow the hormone’s metabolism, inhibit aromatization and tremendously enhance its binding affinity to the androgen receptor. These simple yet important changes make Tren one of the most powerful anabolic androgenic steroids of all time. For an appreciation of this steroid’s power we only need to look at its ratings; Tren carries an anabolic rating of 500 and androgenic rating of 500 compared to testosterone that’s 100 in both categories.
Regardless of the form of Tren used the hormone itself is the same. The only difference of true importance is how fast the hormone works, and this is determined by the ester. The ester doesn’t change the actual functions and traits of the Tren hormone. The ester also determines how much active Tren is available per milligram. The larger the ester the more space it takes up in the compound and the less active Tren there is available per milligram. However, with any form you can account for this by adjusting the dose.
The direct functions and traits of Tren are similar to many anabolic steroids. However, in the case of Tren they are simply enhanced and more effective. You can take the same function or trait in another steroid and while Tren may do the same thing it will simply do it better. The functions and traits of Tren include:
- Increased rate of protein synthesis: This refers to the rate in which cells build proteins, the building blocks of muscle tissue.
- Increased nitrogen retention: More retention increases anabolism and less leads to catabolism. This exists because all lean muscle tissue is comprised of nitrogen, approximately 16%.
- Increased levels of IGF-1: Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) is a hormone naturally produced by that body that is extremely anabolic and affects nearly every area of the human body. It is essential to growth and recovery and not only for our muscles but for our tendons, ligaments, cartilage and even the central nervous and pulmonary systems. When it comes to IGF-1 promotion it’s not only important there are few steroids that can match what Tren can do for IGF-1.
- Increased red blood cell count: Red blood cells carry oxygen through the blood. Increased levels result in greater muscular endurance. This will also enhance recovery.
- Inhibition of glucocorticoids: Glucocorticoids or stress hormones are essential to our health and wellbeing, but they also destroy muscle tissue and promote fat gain. Tren can ensure these hormones do not become dominant, and that we stay in a muscle building and fat reduction state.
- Increased feed efficiency: This may be the single most important and valuable trait of the Tren hormone. Sometimes referred to as “Nutrient Efficiency” this is what makes the hormone so effective. Food is the most important factor of any plan; how we eat will determine the direction we go. However, the body can only utilize each nutrient to a certain degree. With the introduction of Tren into the body each nutrient is utilized to a higher degree, it becomes more efficient. Our set food intake may not have changed, but we get more in return. Every gram of protein, fat and carbohydrates becomes more valuable.
Effects of Tren
If we were to sum up the effects of Tren with one word, the positive effects it would be “incredible!” This steroid can be used in cutting and bulking cycles with great effectiveness, but it is the cutting phase that perhaps wins out in terms of total benefits.
When we diet the goal is to lose body fat. In order to lose body fat we must burn more calories than we consume. You cannot lose body fat if you consume more than you burn. Because of the necessary calorie restriction this puts lean tissue at risk, specifically muscle tissue. In fact, it’s impossible to diet without some muscle tissue loss. This makes the goal of dieting to maintain muscle tissue, minimizing the loss while losing fat. No one wants to lose fat and muscle. Tren is the single best protective agent for this purpose. We ensure muscle mass is protected and all that is lost is body fat. And it gets even better when we consider that the use of Tren will actually improve the individual’s metabolic rate thereby increasing the rate by which fat is burned. Some data has even suggested that because Tren has such a strong binding affinity to the androgen receptor that it may even promote direct lipolysis (fat loss) but how significant is inconclusive.
While protecting muscle tissue and promoting a better metabolism already makes Tren a great steroid for cutting, these are far from the only benefits. There is perhaps no anabolic steroid that possesses the conditioning effects of Tren. Hardness, muscular definition and vascularity, simply a tighter, harder and more pleasing physique can be produced with Tren. In fact, we’ll go as far as to say that you could combine any two steroids on earth and they still wouldn’t hold the conditioning power of Tren.
It’s easy to see how the effects of Tren can benefit the cutting phase and they can be almost if not just as beneficial to the off-season or bulking phase. This is one of the best mass promoting steroids on the market. There are steroids that produce more weight faster, but with Tren all weight gained will be muscle mass. There is no water retention. Every bit as important is bulking can be cleaner with Tren due to the hormone’s potent effect on the metabolism. In order to grow we must consume more calories than we burn, and this will lead to some body fat accumulation. A successful off-season or bulking phase not only produces enhanced muscle mass but does so with as little fat gain as possible.
Whether used for bulking or cutting all who use Tren will find their muscular endurance is enhanced. Simply put, you will not tire out as fast. The same will hold true for recovery, it is enhanced meaning you recover from your training faster. This is extremely important as progress is made outside of the gym, not in the gym. The gym is where we put in the work directly, but it is in our recovery time that our body does the work needed to progress. Without recovery there is no progression and when recovery is improved so is the progression.
The final positive effects of Tren surround strength. This is one of the best strength promoting steroids on the market. Strength gains should be very significant during a bulking phase and may even exist in some diets. However, if we’re talking about a strict, hard diet where we’re truly getting ripped you shouldn’t expect much in terms of strength increases. Hard dieting may still cause some strength to be lost, but the use of Tren should help you protect a good bit of it.
Important Note: Some Tren users report the hormone negatively affects their cardiovascular endurance. It does not appear to have this affect on everyone and in those that it does it appears to at varying levels.
