Equipoise – a synthetic steroid, created on the basis of testosterone. The molecule of the natural male hormone was modified, resulting in a more powerful anabolic effect and partially lost the androgenic properties.
Active active substance of the drug is Boldenone Undsilenate. This steroid was developed by scientists on the basis of methandrostenolone, for a longer exposure to the body and therefore as a more effective tool in bodybuilding, resulting in a steroid chemical formula similar to testosterone, but with more relaxed androgenic qualities. Despite the same anabolic component with Testosterone, Equicomyz acts slightly slower according to athletes’ reviews, although it can be assumed that this is only a subjective opinion of individual athletes. The fact that testosterone delays water in the body, and Boldenone undecylenate (Equipose) undlessilen almost no, and therefore it may seem that there is a faster set of weight from testosterone. But if you take into account the mandatory rollback after the course of testosterone and the fact that there is practically no rollback from the boldenone, the final result will be approximately equal.
Boldenon Undecylenate is a very convenient preparation for many sports, as it is harmless enough and improves the physical qualities of the athlete well, at various dosages it can be used not only in weightlifting, but also in boxing, hockey and other various sports. In bodybuilding, the usual norm for equiposis is 200 to 600 mg per week. Often this steroid is combined with others, then the dosage can be further reduced.
The bodybuilder, who decided to buy Equipoise, should not expect a quick result. The growth and increase in muscle mass occur relatively long, but the effect is very pronounced and prolonged.
Of the additional remarkable qualities of the steroid Equipoise, one can note the effect on the hematopoiesis: the drug promotes the formation of a large number of new blood cells.
The commercial name equipoise belongs to such an injection steroid as boldenum undecylenate. This substance was developed as a substitute for methandrostenolone, devoid of its disadvantages, but as a result, a substance with several other physiological properties was obtained. The presence of a double bond between the first and second carbon atoms in the molecule of the active substance equipoise plus the absence of the 17-alpha-methyl group causes the specific properties of this synthetic steroid hormone.
The 7-alpha-methyl group was responsible for liver damage that caused methandrostenolone, its absence made the drug less harmful to health, but on the other hand, after removing this part of the molecule responsible for unimpeded passage through the liver, it became impossible to release the drug in tablets, and It is used only in the form of injections.
Equipoise is less prone to aromatization, and this is its biggest advantage over natural hormones like testosterone. That is, the effects of estrogen on taking this steroid – obesity, gynecomastia, increased blood pressure – are much less common. On the other hand, having approximately the same anabolic effect as testosterone, equiposis differs by a twice weaker androgenic effect, which makes it possible to use the drug by female bodybuilders without fear of virilization. The long acid residue of the ester is responsible for a slower but qualitative effect of muscle building. But preparing for the competition, which is doping control, the athlete must take into account that removing the drug from the body takes a longer time, and stop receiving in a timely manner to avoid disqualification.
