Testosterone cypionate is a steroidal ester that is long lasting and increasingly difficult to test for. This product is a slightly stronger than enanthate. This is not common on the market. Optimal dosages are in the range of 200-600mg per week. Testosterone cypionate is more commonly used in the US and is manufactured throughout the world. Cypionate is a superior product over many others, and provides more bang for your buck than enanthate. It can produce a bit more water retention, but not enough for you to be concerned with. It is a long acting injectables, that keeps testosterone levels elevated for about two weeks.
Avoid using this product during the dieting phase of your body building as it tends to breakdown into estrogen and can increase water weight gain and in increase in fat mass. The addition of Nolvadex® should be added to minimize the effect of estrogen created by this product. You may also notice the development of oily skin, acne, body/facial hair growth and male pattern balding as this product aids in the metabolism of testosterone at a very rapid rate.
Cypionate is active in the body longer than many other testosterone-based products and will only have to be injected on a weekly basis at most. This will keep blood testosterone levels constant, but try not to inject more than twice weekly. At a dosage of 250mg to 800mg per week you will see dramatic results. Large doses are unnecessary, even though some bodybuilders have claimed better bulk with using excessively high dosages of this drug. The higher dosages will have a minimal effect on muscle mass, but most wieght gain will come from water retention.
Injectable testosterone will quickly prevent the production of endogenous testosterone. It may bee wise to add a testosterone stimulating drug like HCG and/or Clomid®/Nolvadex® to help avoid hormonal imbalance. Hormonal imbalance may reduce much of the new muscle mass and strength. The user should continue drug therapy to preserve the solid mass after stopping the use of this product.
