Test-C 300 (Testosterone cypionate) is another separate ether of testosterone, which is actively used in strength sports. Unlike enanthate and propionate, cypionate does not have the classical half-life. It ranges from four to eight days. Therefore, not everyone comes to choose the optimal scheme for using this ether. But more about that later.
Testosterone cypionate effects
Like any other injection version of testosterone, cypionate ester has all the positive qualities inherent in this hormone:
- Good stabilization of the androgen receptor;
- Pronounced anabolic and androgenic effects;
- Outstanding anti-catabolic abilities;
- Increased organic production of GH and IGF – 1;
- Glycogen supercompensation;
- An increase in the number of specific receptors in muscle tissue;
- Lubrication of the joints (on the cycle);
- Enhanced red blood cell production;
- Good effects on athletes with varying AAS experience.
Like enanthate, cypionate is easily and simply converted to estradiol and dihydrotestosterone. With all the attendant phenomena. Both positive and negative.
Possible side effects
Steroid shows a high level of aromatization. Consequently, along with an increase in muscle mass, the concentration of estrogen increases, which is the cause of the development of such a disease as gynecomastia, accompanied by compaction and swelling of the area around the nipples. To prevent the risks of gyno, athletes take aromatase blockers and Nolvadex or Clomid, which are antiestrogens.
Side effects from taking cypionate are often caused by a high conversion of the hormone into the active form of dihydrotestosterone, and are manifested by androgenic character. In some cases, an athlete may have arterial blood pressure, hair growth on various parts of the body and on the face, or, conversely, alopecia, acne, increased secretion of the sebaceous glands.
Testosterone Cypionate dosage
The objective weekly dose of testosterone cypionate is 300-1000 mg per week. Again, I advise you not to rise above 500 – 600 mg. This is more than enough. The frequency of injections (until you learn to individually approach this moment) is one to two milliliters every third, fourth day. Depending on the concentration of the substance from a separate manufacturer.
Combination with other drugs
Like any other ether, testosterone cypionate may be the only anabolic hormone on the cycle. And can be combined with:
