Next to testosterone Boldenone Undeclynate is perhaps one of the most commonly used anabolic steroids among steroid users; you know it as Equipoise let's start with one common misconception; often Equipoise is compared to Nandrolone-Decanoate (Deca-Durabolin) but this is an inaccurate comparison. Equipoise doesn't possess the reciprocal action involving progesterone nor the side-effects associated with progesterone that can occur with Deca-Durabolin. If we were to compare Equipoise to any steroid, the closest in similar action would be without a doubt testosterone; they are very similar in their design as well as action.
Equipoise is one of the more all-around quality anabolic steroids and can easily be used for both cutting and bulking purposes; however, during a dieting phase Equipoise may prove to be slightly more useful. Like most anabolic steroids, Equipoise will greatly increase protein synthesis, as well as nitrogen levels; two great keys to success in any anabolic steroid cycle. Further, this anabolic steroid has strong traits enabling it to increase the release of erythropoietin, a hormone responsible for red-blood cell production; the use of Equipoise can dramatically increase this count.
Another very common trait found by many Equipoise users is its ability to stimulate ones appetite; this is one reason many will choose to use the drug when bulking to enable them to eat a higher amount of calories. However, this trait does not seem to show itself with every user and is largely individualistic.
As stated, most will find this anabolic steroid more useful in cutting; although it doesn't seem to produce a large amount of mass it is however a solid provider of increases in strength; obviously this can be used as an advantage when trying to grow in-conjunction with other anabolic steroids. It is perhaps Equipoise ability to harden a physique for which it is most known and appreciated for, thereby making it a fan of many dieters. It is important to note, for this hardness to be noticed one must be at a low body fat; Equipoise will not magically convert a physique high in fat to a hard one.
Like all anabolic steroids there are side effects with Equipoises. Equipoise will suppress your natural testosterone levels, however, even though its makeup is similar to the testosterone steroids Equipoise does not aromatize at the same rate. The conversion to estrogen appears to be at about 50% as compared to testosterone.
All-in-all Equipoise is a solid anabolic steroid. Further it is generally purchased at a reasonable price and is rarely faked. Most users of this anabolic steroid will need to use it at a minimum of eight (8) weeks at a time; twelve (12) weeks being a more reasonable minimum to see any results. Equipoise is a very slow acting anabolic steroid due to the undecylenate ester typically attached, so patience and consistency is key. A dose of 400mg-600mg per week is a general well responding dose and will see you to where you'd like to be.
