Equipoise (also known as Boldenone) is an anabolic steroid. The drug has a moderate anabolic effect, provides a fixed increase in muscle mass with minimal regression after the course.

Sport and Equipoise

Equipoise was originally developed for veterinary use to correct muscular dystrophy in horses. It was created as a long-acting version of Methandienone, but during the experiment a steroid with completely different properties was obtained, although the molecules had a similar chemical structure.

In addition to its use in veterinary medicine, the drug began to be used by people for medical and sports purposes due to the variety of its biological effects. Equipoisea’s trade name “Boldenon” became known in the 70s. 20th century. But this substance was previously used under a different name – “Parenabol”, but this particular drug was soon discontinued. Now this anabolic steroid is produced in different countries under different trade names. When choosing an Equipoise drug, the price may vary depending on the dosage and the manufacturer.

Benefits of Equipoise

Equipoise is a modified testosterone molecule with a double bond between carbon 1 and 2. This modification reduces the androgenic and estrogenic effects of the substance. Equipoise is often in the form of an undecylenate, which greatly lengthens its half-life in the body. The maximum concentration of the drug is reached 3-4 days after administration, and the effect lasts up to 3 weeks.

Benefits of Equipoise

Equipoise has testosterone-like effects, significantly increases protein synthesis, nitrogen retention in muscle tissue, has a suppressing effect on glucocorticoids and significantly stimulates an increase in IGF-1 concentration, an insulin-like growth factor. In addition, Equipoise is more pronounced than testosterone, it stimulates the formation of red blood cells. This effect should be taken into account when using large doses of the drug. Its use in standard doses causes a slight increase in the concentration of red blood cells in the blood, which has a positive effect on human performance, since red blood cells increase the level of tissue oxygenation.

How does taking the drug affect the general condition?

Equipoise strongly stimulates the appetite, allowing you to eat better, however, this effect does not appear in everyone.

An important advantage of the drug is the increase in strength, which is useful both for increasing muscle mass and for its active work.

Equipoise side effects

Equipoise is a relatively weak steroid in terms of side effects, but they cannot be completely ruled out. Side effects of the drug include:

  • Estrogenic effects. Water retention, gynecomastia.
  • Androgenic effects. Acne, located on the chest, shoulders, back. Hypersecretion of the sebaceous glands, baldness. In women, the voice may decrease, male-type hair growth occurs. To minimize androgenic effects, only moderate doses are recommended.
  • Influence on the cardiovascular system. LDL cholesterol levels increase, HDL cholesterol levels decrease. However, this action is less pronounced than that of other anabolics. A balanced diet, an additional intake of omega-3 unsaturated fatty acids is recommended.
  • Decreased natural testosterone synthesis.

Dosage and diet

You can buy Equipoise in ampoules and use it for muscle building at the optimal dose of 600-1000 mg once a week. A smaller dose has no tangible effect, a large one increases the risk of side effects. The course of application of the drug is 6-10 weeks. Injections are administered intramuscularly, the recommended location is the gluteal muscle. Standard 5 ml syringes should be used, the needle should be inserted fully.

Recommendations for post cycle therapy after Equipoisea

After applying the course of Equipoisea, it is recommended to use Tamoxifen. The drug is started one week after the end of the Equipoisea course. Tamoxifen is given one tablet a day for 30 days. Its reception helps to reduce the concentration of estrogen, and also gives a positive tendency in relation to the synthesis of natural testosterone. Post cycle therapy after using anabolic steroids significantly reduces the recovery period. Establishing your own hormone production will help you maximize the results you get after taking Equipoise.
