Effects of the steroid Equipoise
Specific uses and other properties of Boldenone
Athletes using boldenone during weight gain, when it is important to gain a lot of muscle mass without worrying about its quality, have been very successful. However, at first glance, the use of boldenone for weight gain does not seem to make much sense as it does not aromatize and has no progestational effect. When boldenone is used for weight gain, it is therefore combined with long-acting testosterones such as enanthate or cypionate.
The use of boldenone (equipoise) increases appetite, which of course has a positive effect on weight gain, but, as many experienced pharmacists have pointed out in practice, boldenone should be combined with products containing 200 mg/ml of the active ingredient to achieve good results.
Many pharmacologists recommend the use of boldenone for muscle drying as it is very effective for this purpose.
However, be aware of increased appetite when using boldenone as a muscle drying agent.
Effects of boldenone on endurance
Boldenone affects the number of red blood cells (erythrocytes), the number of which is increased by stimulating one of the kidney hormones, erythropoietin, which is increased due to an increase in metabolite 5b.
Erythrocyte counting has been used successfully by athletes in many sports, especially aerobics, where endurance is crucial. Boldenone also benefits bodybuilders, since as muscle mass increases, the capillary network in the muscles also increases, and of course we must not forget the venous network, which is in optimal condition with this product, which is not unimportant for bodybuilders who compete.
Boldenone for endurance development
How fast does Boldenone work?
Due to its long and heavy ester chain, boldenone does not act immediately (slowly), but remains in the bloodstream for about 3-4 weeks. Another negative aspect of boldenone is that one third of the drug does not work – this is “ballast”.
Due to the obvious drawbacks of boldenone undecenate, pharmaceutical companies have synthesised boldenone acetate and boldenone propionate, which are characterised by a longer duration of action and a rapid onset of action. At the same time, boldenone acetate and propionate are not without drawbacks, as many athletes have observed: they are very painful and are not widely used in bodybuilding, whereas they are used in other sports where endurance is predominant (athletics, skiing, cycling, etc.).
What are the best doses of Boldenone to use?
The optimal dose is 300-800 mg per week. In order for low doses of boldenone (300 mg) to be effective, it is wise to combine them with other anabolic steroids. For an athlete, a weekly dose of approximately 600-800 mg is considered as a working dose.
The long half-life of boldenone (the time taken for half of the drug to leave the body after the first injection, i.e. the concentration of the ester in the blood is halved) makes it possible to give injections no more than once a week. However, pharmacologists recommend increasing the dose by a factor of 1,5 to 2 during the first two weeks because of the slow absorption of the drug.
Combination with the drug
To increase muscle mass, boldenone can be combined with sustanone or testosterone enanthate injections. Oxymetholone can also be added to this combination. For more pronounced weight gain, boldenone can also be used in combination with methandriol dipropionate, but due to the short half-life of methandriol (2-3 days), it should be injected at the following intervals: 2 ml once every two days or 3 ml once every three days. In addition, boldenone methandriol can be added to testosterone to accelerate weight gain.
For muscle drying, boldenone is usually used with trenbolone or stanozolol, but some people combine the three drugs together, which is also acceptable. More experienced lifters looking to improve muscle quality and definition may consider a combination of boldenone and testosterone propionate.
If you want to gain muscle mass, an excellent combination is Equipoise with trenbolone and testosterone (in this case, we shorten the course to 6 weeks so as not to suppress your own testosterone production and necessarily take antiestrogens). Boldenone combines well with Anavar and Vinstrol for bulking and muscle mass.
It should be remembered that anabolic steroid use is not only about building muscle, but also about basic nutrition (muscle mass), which is also a strong anabolic factor for increasing muscle mass and strength.
Side effects of Boldenone (Equipoise)
Boldenone has no significant effect on actual testosterone production due to its resistance to the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase and its inability to convert to the potent androgen, dihydrotestosterone. Because of this, no side effects (prostatic hypertrophy, acne, baldness, facial and body hair, etc.) due to Equipoise’s androgenic activity are observed, of course if used properly (applies to men only).
We would also like to note that the low estrogenic activity of boldenone (2 times lower than that of testosterone!) allows athletes to use it in training without needing other anti-estrogens, which protect athletes from gynecomastia, edema and high blood pressure. At the same time, Equipoise acts as an aromatase inhibitor in the athlete’s body by suppressing the conversion of testosterone to estrogen, so be sure to monitor your estradiol levels (lest they drop to zero).
Due to the increase in red blood cell count, the rheological properties of the blood can deteriorate, ie. Haematocrit (the volume of red blood cells reflecting the ratio between red blood cells and plasma) may increase, It is therefore important to monitor haematocrit during treatment with Boldenone to see if any abnormalities have occurred, a doctor should be consulted, as a rule Trenal or Pentoxifylline is prescribed to prevent aggregation (clumping) of erythrocytes, i.e. This prevents the formation of a blood cell. That is, they prevent the formation of “columns of pieces” in the blood and their three-dimensional conglomerates, thus improving the rheology of the blood.
For women, Equipoise is one of the safest anabolic steroids, mainly due to its low androgenic activity (the risk of virilization phenomenon is minimal).
Of course, the lipid profile should not be forgotten: the intake of anabolic steroids increases the level of bad cholesterol (LDL), so care should be taken to use supplements with omega-3 fatty acids during the “chemo” and to do hormone tests.
