Testosterone cypionate, a testosterone ester very similar in action to testosterone enanthate. The differences between the two are small: cipionate is faster to engage, and sucks up a little more water than enanthate. Both of these forms of testosterone maintain elevated testosterone levels for two weeks.
Like any injectable form of testosterone, cypionate gives a significant increase in strength and muscle mass, but since testosterone is very easily flavored, there will be a fairly noticeable accumulation of water. This drug is not suitable for periods of pre-competition training or “drying out”. Also testosterone cypionate can cause gynecomastia, in this case, if you have increased nipple sensitivity, or increasing their volume, it is necessary to use Proviron that minimizes the side effects. In the case of this drug, it is better to use expensive anti-aromatase drugs like Arimidex.
It should also be noted that the use of testosterone esters will very quickly suppress the production of your own testosterone. Therefore after a course with testosterone esters post-course therapy with gonadotropin or clomid is necessary. This will help avoid a collapse of results after the end of the course. Most bodybuilders complain that they have “drained” everything they gained on testosterone, but this only happened because they did not build a reasonable exit from the course. Of course, you can’t expect to keep all the weight gained, but with a smart approach, you can reduce the loss to a minimum.
Often athletes prefer testosterone esters to nandrolone or boldenone esters, which have a more moderate anabolic-androgenic effect.
