Testosterone Propionate cycle is one of the most sought after steroid cycles in bodybuilding. Test Prop is designed for the development of muscle mass and strength, but due to the characteristics of the action, it is more often used during the cutting cycle. It is one of the esters of testosterone. Among the main modern manufacturers of Testosterone Propionate can be called Alpha Pharma, BM Pharmaceuticals, Dragon Pharma, Eminence Labs, Maxtreme Pharma, and some others.
Test Prop was discovered in 1936 and was introduced for medical use in 1937. It was the first testosterone ester that was sold and was the main form of testosterone used in medicine until 1960.
How to Use a Testosterone Propionate Cycle?
Testosterone Propionate may be the only steroid in the cycle, but the best effect is achieved when combined with other steroids. To use anabolic agents novice athletes can be with a dosage of 50 mg Test Prop every other day. The usual dose of more experienced athletes is from 100 mg of Testosterone Propionate daily and above.
Be sure to take anti-estrogenic drugs, such as Proviron or aromatase inhibitors according to the standard scheme, starting from the second week in order to avoid the development of gynecomastia, fluid retention and other estrogen effects. After the introduction is carried out Post Cycle Therapy (PCT), Tamoxifen is most often used. Also, the output is desirable to receive cortisol blockers, to preserve the accumulated mass. Be sure to follow a diet for weight gain and take sports nutrition.
Combined Testosterone Propionate Cycle
In cutting cycle Testosterone Propionate is well combined with Stanozolol, Trenbolone Acetate, Masteron, Primobolan and some other steroids. Test Prop is part of testosterone ester mixtures such as Sustanon or Omnadren, as a mandatory component that allows you to immediately feel the work of the steroid.
Example of cutting cycle for beginners:
- Testosterone Propionate 50 mg every other day.
- Stanozolol 30 mg per day, starting with 10 mg, and bringing the dose to the optimum for 1 week.
- After 6 weeks, you should cancel anabolic agents and after 3-4 days start PCT.
In this cycle, the synergy of action of drugs is manifested, which means that the total effect of their simultaneous use is greater than the simple sum of the effects, if they were used individually, at the same time reduces the risk of side effects. Some experienced athletes do local injections of propionate into the target muscle, such as biceps, deltoids, tibia when working on mass, but the effectiveness of this approach has not been proven.
Any form of the steroid has only a resorptive effect, with no local effect on the muscle. If the drugs were administered intramuscularly to stimulate local hypertrophy of these muscle cells, it was possible to observe asymmetric growth, outwardly similar to the results obtained using Synthol.
