Boldenone Undecylenate | Equipoise
Boldenone Undecylenate known as Equipoise is one of the most famous anabolic steroids in the world. This is actually a veterinary steroid used by humans. It is known for its good anabolic characteristics and relatively small side effects.
Boldenone Undecylenate Description
Boldenone Undecylenate was designed as an attempt to create a longer injectable ester of Methandienone, but it was received a totally different product. It is as anabolic as testosterone but has an androgen ratio twice as low. However, when you used it, you do not gain as much muscles as in the case of testosterone.
Studies have shown that Boldenone Undecylenate can increase the number of red cells to a greater extent than most steroids. The beneficial effects of this steroid are greatly appreciated among athletes, becoming more and more popular in the recent years. Boldenone Undecylenate is considered by many to be a muscle mass constructor weaker than Nandrolone Decanoate, but which promotes greater strength and vascularity. Equipoise is a steroid that is well tolerated by most athletes.
The half-life of this steroid is great, it leads to slow mass gains but of very good quality. For this reason when used in steroid courses by itself it is necessary to use it for at least 12 weeks in order to get good results.
Because it is a steroid that increases your appetite, Boldenone Undecylenate can be hard to use when you want a muscle definition, but this is not the case for everyone.
Often Boldenone Undecylenate is used along with other steroids like testosterone for better results. It will increase muscle strength and will bring great mass gains.
Boldenone Undecylenate Dosage
You should use Boldenone Undecylenate at least once a week in doses of 200-600mg/week. The optimal dose is 500-600mg/week. It can be taken in smaller doses once every two days that cumulated would give the desired amount per week. It is important to change the injection place to avoid irritation. If a too large dose of oily substance is given in one place, surgical complications may occur. So to avoid this, you should not inject more than 3 ml at a time.
A cycle with Equipoise should last at least 8 weeks, with the possibility of extension to 16 weeks.
Boldenone Undecylenate can be used by women in doses of 50mg/week.
Boldenone Undecylenate Side Effects
The side effects associated with this steroid are generally mild unless you exaggerate with the doses. In very small doses it can even be used by athletes.
Boldenone Undecylenate Estrogenic Side Effects
Boldenone Undecylenate has an estrogen conversion rate of 50% comparing to testosterone. Estrogenic side effects such as water retention, fat accumulation and gynecomastia are theoretically possible, but at moderate doses there is little chance of it occurring.
In order to protect themselves from estrogenic side effects, athletes use anti-estrogens such as Tamoxifen during administration of Equipoise. Another stronger option is Anastrozole, but it also reduces good cholesterol and negatively affects the joints.
Boldenone Undecylenate Androgenic Side Effects
Boldenone Undecylenate generally has moderate side effects. It can cause oily skin. It is possible to develop acne and calvitie at high doses. It depends very much on the sensitivity of each athlete and on the genetic predispositions of each. If you are genetically predisposed to acne, the risks of acne from Equipoise are higher!
In women case, it can cause hair growth on the body, thickening of the voice, enlargement of the clitoris. Anyway, Equipoise is not a steroid recommended to women. They have much better sports options than using this steroid.
Cardiovascular Side Effects
Boldenone Undecylenate can negatively affect cholesterol (lowers HDL and increases LDL), but to a lesser extent than other anabolic steroids. However, supplementing with 3-4g/day of fish oil and increased attention to diet, is welcome.
Side Effects On Testosterone
Even if it is a light steroid, it can have suppressive effects on your testosterone production, so you would need to use Clomid and Tamoxifen after the cycle, especially when the cycle lasts longer. But as a general rule it is good to follow a Post Cycle Therapy after any steroid cure.
