Testosterone cypionate is a long acting ester of testosterone which is increasingly difficult to the scheduling of anabolics in the ., this was the most common form of testosterone available to athletes. Cyp had gained a reputation as being slightly stronger than enanthate and became the testosterone of choice for many. Now that anabolics are controlled, this is an almost impossible find. In general, the only versions you’ll find on the black market are Sten from Mexico, which contains 75mg cyp with 25 mg propionate along with some DHEA, and Testex from Leo in Spain which contains 250mg cypionate is a light resistant ampule. All versions of Upjohn and Steris in multi-dose vials should be looked at with extreme caution as they are very difficult to get on the black market. Counterfeits are quite easy to obtain. Real Steris products have the inking STAMPED into the box and the labels cannot be removed from the bottle. Any variation of that is definitely counterfeit. A running dosage of test cypionate is generally in the range of 200-600mg per week. When this was available for $20 per10ml bottle, many users would take a whopping 2000mg per week. This kind of dosage however, is unsafe, generally not needed and in today’s day and age too costly.
Doses of 250 – 1000 mg a week are common using Testosterone Cypionate, with excellent results found midway at about 500 mg or less for the first time user and between 500 – 1000 mg weekly for the more advanced athlete. Testosterone stacks well with anything and is also great when used alone. When stacked with another anabolic-androgenic steroid, distinct androgenic effects may be seen. Using Testosterone Cypionate will improve regenerative capacity as well as training aggressiveness which results in significant increases in overall strength during the course of the cycle.
A long acting testosterone ester will be very helpful for your bulking needs, and Testosterone Cypionate is a product which is more simple than some of the other steroids out there. Not to say it is without its share of complications, but it’s a good choice, especially for those new to enhanced bodybuilding. Discontinuing the product is not an option in case side effects occur, because it will continue to aggravate these side effects over extended periods of time due to the long length of action of this steroid. Ancillary drugs such as Nolvadex, Proviron, Clomid and HCG may help, both during cycle and post cycle to help restore natural testosterone production. Testosterone Cypionate does aromatize slightly more than Sustanon, but when using either drug, one should be familiar with anti-estrogens such as Nolvadex or Clomid and use one of them when symptoms of gyno occur.
