Each bodybuilder has his own training systems, which he adheres to in order to achieve optimal results in sports. At the same time, adherence to sports nutrition and daily routine does not always give visible results. For this reason, the use of steroids remains a popular solution among bodybuilders. Testosterone ester mix helps to achieve high results, which helps to keep the motivation to go to the gym.
The use of Sustanon 250 to increase muscle mass
The esters in Sustanon 250 manifest themselves as follows:
- Phenylpropionate / isocaproate – “medium” esters that begin their action later than propionate. Isocaproate is needed to maintain optimal testosterone levels between propionate and decanoate. The half-life is 9 days. Phenylpropionate maintains an optimal level of testosterone after the complete breakdown of the fast ester.
- Propionate – considered one of the most popular forms of testosterone – a fast ester that has an almost instant effect;
- Decanoate is a “long” ester used in any steroid. Its half-life is 14 days. Accordingly, it will be contained in the blood for a whole month. For this reason, experts recommend starting PCT a couple of weeks after the last dose of Sustanon.
Some mistakenly believe that this anabolic is nothing more than a combined course in 1 ampoule, but this is not at all the case. The fact is that all 4 esters, when they enter the bloodstream, turn into the same substance – testosterone.
The drug was first released by Organon. It is in the form of an oily ester and is used for intramuscular injections. Thanks to the injectable form, the drug allows you to achieve a quick result and does not have a devastating effect on the liver. The combination of decanoate, isocaproate, phenylpropionate and propionate esters at 100, 600, 60 and 30 mg respectively allows for explosive muscle growth. Benzene alcohol is part of the drug, acting as an antiseptic, while peanut oil allows you to dissolve the esters.
The results of the course will be presented as follows:
- improvement of hematopoietic function;
- preservation of libido;
- improvement in appetite.
For a course of Sustanon, it is possible to obtain about 12 kg of muscle mass. At the same time, accurate results can only be established individually, taking into account the characteristics of the body, the course of training and other nuances. Increasing the concentration of red blood cells during the cycle helps to improve endurance. Over the course of the course, the bodybuilder becomes much stronger, and the result is maintained for a long time due to the suppression of catabolic processes.
Possibilities of using Sustanon 250 and the right course in sports
Sustanon 250 is a very “flexible” drug that can be safely used for almost any purpose related to sports. It has an excellent anabolic effect.
Stimulates the growth of muscle mass – the steroid exhibits good anabolic activity. It cannot be said that it is as high as that of powerful popular anabolics. Nevertheless, the muscle gain obtained with Sustanon is of high quality, and the rollback is minimal.
Increases strength – ensures weight class retention due to minimal impact on weight. Priority option for “heavy” sports: suitable for representatives of weightlifting and powerlifters.
Stimulates fat burning – it is immediately worth noting that sustanon is not the best, but a good enough option for those who are on the cutting. The drug stimulates the action of enzymes responsible for lipid metabolism.
Moderately retains water – thereby providing sufficient protection for the joints, tendons and directly muscle fibers from potential injuries during intense exercise.
Increases appetite – due to the effect on enzymes that regulate androgen levels and due to increased energy costs. An excellent option during the period of gaining muscle mass.
Powerful anti-catabolic – helps preserve muscle mass, which is important both in a strict diet regimen and during moderate-intensity training. Among other things, the anti-catabolic effect of the drug allows you to increase physical activity, while reducing the recovery period.
An increase in the level of red blood cells, which activates the delivery of oxygen to the cells – thereby increasing the endurance of the body. True, despite this feature of Sustanon, it is rarely used by athletes who require increased endurance during the competition.
Since 4 testosterone esters are used at once to obtain the drug, the solo course will be very effective. The optimal dosage of the drug can only be determined by the attending physician. The latter will provide the athlete with his recommendations based on diagnostics, which will establish the current state of the bodybuilder’s body. Its duration is 8 weeks.
For experienced bodybuilders, the recommended dosage reaches 500 mg of the substance per week. Beginners should start with 250 mg, which will establish the tolerance of substances in the composition of sustanon by the body. The duration of the course for beginner bodybuilders does not exceed 6 weeks. At the same time, athletes use Sustanon in combination with other anabolics to enhance the result. So, nandrolone allows you to strengthen the relief after the course, and you can go through drying thanks to winstrol.
The undoubted advantage of Sustanon 250 can be considered its “loyalty” to the athlete’s body: side effects in athletes are not as common as in most androgenically active steroids. And yet, sometimes there are negative reactions:
- The conversion of testosterone to estradiol – this manifests itself in the form of female-type body fat, gynecomastia and fluid retention. The unpleasant effect, fortunately, is easily eliminated by a course of anastrozole or aromazine, which block aromatase enzymes that convert “excess” testosterone.
- Androgenic effect – manifests itself in the form of baldness, hypertrophied prostate. Often this is due to the genetic characteristics of the athlete. The problem is eliminated by taking aromatase inhibitors.
- Acne – occurs due to increased oiliness of the skin (again, this is a genetic feature of a bodybuilder). The problem is eliminated by changing the diet: the amount of fats and fast carbohydrates decreases. As cosmetics, an infusion of calendula or products based on salicylic acid are suitable.
- Symptoms of a flu-like condition – muscle weakness, sore throat, headaches – taking omega-3 acids will be an excellent prevention.
- Sealing at the injection site – in most cases, the negative effect disappears without complications in 3-5 weeks. If the injection is done correctly, this problem should not arise.
