Testosterone Cypionate (Testocyp) is used by athletes and bodybuilders but it is considered to be a less common form of testosterone. In addition, it is one of the most specific active substances in the treatment of andropause, and other diseases associated with a lack of gonadotropins in men.
The drug is extremely effective in building muscle mass and increasing strength. This product is widely available on the pharmacology market and the price of Testosterone Cypionate is no different from its analogues. To understand how a remedy works, you need to have a minimal knowledge of androgens.
Androgens, the so-called male sex hormones, which make a man different from a woman. They are released by cells, and provide most of the physiological processes in the body. The sex hormone is produced cells in the testes (in males), an adult is capable of producing from 2.5 to 11 mg per day, that is, at best, a person is able to produce up to 77mg of testosterone per week. Testosterone is responsible for the growth of body hair, for physical strength, muscle growth in the male pattern and other differences characteristic of a man. Accordingly, the more male hormone, the faster and more male characteristics will become. An athlete of average experience can inject up to 500mg of the substance per week, as you understand from there, and such lightning-fast and amazing changes occur in the physical development of an athlete taking highly androgenic anabolic steroids, such as Testosterone Cypionate.
Testosterone acts on muscles, increasing their volume, increasing the quality and quantity of muscle fibers. This is due to certain physiological processes. The drug actively fights and protects your hard-earned muscles, it suppresses glucocorticoid hormones that lead to natural muscle atrophy (catabolism).
By taking in androgens, the brain signals the muscles to store more contractile proteins (actin and myosin), while glucocorticoid hormones stimulate the brain to do the opposite.
The initiation of erythropoiesis (multiplication of red blood cells in the kidneys) promotes greater oxygenation of the blood, which leads to increased muscle endurance. Red blood cells can also aid in rapid recovery from intense physical activity. Of course, a person taking Cypionate can significantly increase aggressiveness, but this is not a bad thing if you send it to training.
So, Testosterone Cypionate for a course can increase muscle mass by 12kg, strength indicators, as a rule, increase by 10-15%, an athlete taking testosterone simply swells before our eyes.
Testocyp is used only for long-term use, Cypionate is a long ether, and therefore it does not work immediately, the essential oil, together with the active substance, accumulates in the fat layer and is gradually released in the blood, maintaining the maximum plasma levels of the steroid in the body. As a rule, the effect begins from the second week, however, after the end of the course, Cypionate is able to give results for several more weeks.
Dosages for men do not exceed 500mg per week, which is divided into two equal doses on different days, for example, on Monday and Thursday, 250mg each. The course lasts from 5 to 6 weeks.
In courses for weight, the drug is often combined with Anadrol or Dianabol. Athletes in the dry phase who strive for drier, defined muscles use it together with Trenbolone, Anavar, Winstrol and Masteron.
As a rule, there are no significant side effects at normal doses, but minimal side effects can still be felt. This is because when there is an excessive amount of androgens, the body tries to balance it with estrogen (the female hormone), and too much estrogen can lead to the development of female secondary sexual characteristics such as gynecomastia, water retention, and fat accumulation. To reduce all the negativity of the intake, it is recommended to take anti-estrogens such as Clomid after the course.
