Because the ultimate goal of a steroid cycle is to increase strength and muscle size, the associated spike in estrogen which accompanies steroids such as Testosterone is considered undesirable. In order to disassociate the two effects, two classes of drug are used. Medications such as Nolvadex or Clomid target the estrogen receptors. They make it more difficult for the estrogen to exert it’s influence within the body thus allowing the testosterone to act more freely. The second class is aromatase inhibitors such as Femara. They target the aromatase enzyme itself in order to prevent the production of estrogen in the first place. Sometimes, it’s not always clear which option you should go with or even what the differences are between the two. Lets clear that up a little.
Ok, so what we have here is a cycle that uses moderate amounts of anabolics. A cycle like this, which makes use of Testosterone as well as Equipoise will produce noticeable results in both strength as well as size, and will produce a nice, hard look to the physique. Since this is a lean bulking cycle, I´ll assume that the user will be following a diet which is high in quality calories. Protein intake will need to be high to take full advantage of the steroids being used. Conversion to estrogen is not much of a problem with Equipoise, although it´s going to happen with the Testosterone. Keep some Arimidex on hand, and if your nipples get sensitive or you are retaining too much water, use it at .5mgs/day.
The US FDA requires a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) medication guide for Testosterone. For Testosterone Undecanoate, REMS includes elements to assure safe use and implementation system . For additional information: /REMS
US BOXED WARNINGS :
Pulmonary Oil Microembolism (POME) Reactions And Anaphylaxis :
-Serious POME reactions, involving urge to cough, dyspnea, throat tightening, chest pain, dizziness, and syncope; and episodes of anaphylaxis, including life-threatening reactions, have been reported to occur during or immediately after the administration of testosterone undecanoate injection. These reactions can occur after any injection of testosterone undecanoate during the course of therapy, including after the first dose.
-Following each injection of testosterone undecanoate observe patients in the healthcare setting for 30 minutes in order to provide appropriate medical treatment in the event of serious POME reactions or anaphylaxis.
Secondary Exposure To Topical Testosterone :
-Virilization has been reported in children who were secondarily exposed to topical testosterone products.
-Children should avoid contact with unwashed or unclothed application sites in men using testosterone topical.
-Healthcare providers should advise patients to strictly adhere to recommended instructions for use.
Safety and efficacy have not been established in patients younger than 18 years.
Testosterone Enanthate and Testosterone Implant are indicated for delayed puberty in adolescent patients.
Testosterone Cypionate: Safety and efficacy have not been established in patients younger than 12 years.
Consult WARNINGS section for additional precautions.
Keep in mind that using enanthate this way will cause a significant build up of testosterone in the bloodstream that will not cease to increase until four or five weeks of injections. This is due to the fact that taking a four hundred milligram injection, and another four days later, still has at least 200mg working from the previous dose. The third injection then adds another four hundred and the first is still not entirely used up. You may realistically have over a gram or so in the bloodstream before you know it. Just be careful, and keep this in mind when figuring out your dosages.
