Testosterone Cypionate is an ester of testosterone with high
anabolic and androgenic properties. It is oil based and therefore
long acting.

Testosterone is the hormone that makes men, well, men! Since it’s basically the most commonly used form of testosterone in America at this time, let’s take a look at testosterone cypionate, and examine the pros and cons of its ability to improve performance in athletics and bodybuilding.

Testosterone is the hormone responsible for many different physical and mental characteristics in males. It promotes sex drive, fat loss, helps with gaining and maintaining lean muscle mass and bone density, and may even protect against heart disease . All other steroids are actually the testosterone molecule altered soas to
change the properties of the hormone. This would make testosterone the “father” of all other steroids employed by athletes today. In fact, testosterone is the standard for the anabolic/androgenic ratio we use—it’s a “perfect” 100 score, against which we measure all other steroids.

First, testosterone promotes nitrogen retention in the muscle . The more nitrogen the muscle holds the more protein the muscle stores. Testosterone can also increase the levels of another anabolic hormone, IGF-1, in muscle tissue . Testosterone also has the
amazing ability to increase the activity of satellite cells . These cells play a very active role in repairing damaged muscle. Testosterone also binds to the androgen receptor to promote A.R dependant mechanisms for muscle gain and fat loss,  it also significantly increases the concentrations of the A. R in cells critical for muscle
repair and growth and A.R in muscle . Testosterone induces changes in shape and size, and also can change the appearance and the number of muscle fibres .Androgens like testosterone can protect your hard earned muscle from the catabolic (muscle wasting) glucocorticoid hormones , thus inhibiting their action. In
addition, Testosterone has the ability to increase red blood cell production , and a higher RBC count may improve endurance via better oxygenated blood. More RBCs can also improve recovery from strenuous physical activity. As you may have suspected, testosterone’s anabolic/androgenic effects are dose dependant; the
higher the dose the higher the muscle building effect .

Steroid.com members report massive strength gains while using testosterone .Testosterone improves muscle contraction by increasing the number of motor neutrons in muscle  and improves neuromuscular transmission . It also promotes glycogen synthesis  providing more fuel for intense workouts thus increasing endurance and strength. Also note that the water retention from testosterone use will cause the muscle to spring back when compressed during the lowering of a weight. Testosterone promotes aggressive and dominant behavior; this explains the boost of confidence that gives athletes the mental edge they need to move the heavy iron.

Testosterone is highly versatile and should be considered the “base” of anabolic/androgenic steroid cycles because of its muscle building potential as well as for the fact that it prevents the loss of sex drive that sometime affects those who neglect to use it with other HPTA suppressive anabolics, (especially the 19-nor family).

Side effects :

Testosterone use does have some unwanted side effects that Steroid.com members should be aware of. Testosterone can convert to the female hormone estrogen (via aromatization) by the aromatize enzyme. Excessive estrogen can lead to some nasty
side effects:breast tissue growth in men (gynecomastia), fat gain and reduced fat breakdown, loss of sex drive, testicular shrinkage and water retention. Water retention can increase blood pressure weakening blood vessels over a period of time.

Testosterone Cypionate Dosage:

For the purpose of physique and performance enhancement, Testosterone Cypionate dosages tend to vary between the three tiers of users (beginner, intermediate, and advanced). Testosterone Cypionate dosages are also administered weekly at the very least, and should optimally be administered twice weekly with each injection spaced evenly apart. This is obviously very different from medical prescription guidelines, but for the purpose of physique and performance enhancement, the administration schedule must be run differently. Beginner Testosterone Cypionate dosages are in the range of 300 – 500mg weekly, and even on the lowest end of this range, any first-time beginner should see impressive progress considering the brand-new use. Intermediate Testosterone Cypionate dosages are in the range of 500 – 700mg per week; however, it is never usually necessary for any intermediate user to venture above 500mg per week. One must always remember that increasing doses will always lead to a higher incidence of more pronounced side effects. This leads to the next major point before describing advanced Testosterone Cypionate doses, which is the clarification that higher doses and excessively high doses are not the definition of an advanced anabolic steroid user of any type. Once again, increased doses are correlated with an increased incidence of side effects. With this being said, advanced Testosterone Cypionate dosages should never require an increase above the intermediate range, but can be seen in some advanced users as high as 700 – 1,000mg per week or higher.
