Sustanon is an anabolic steroid designed to be injected into the body (unlike Turinabol, for example). It is based on the composition of the oil. The active substance is various testosterone esters. It is manufactured by the international pharmaceutical company Organon.
The composition is represented by four different testosterone esters. In addition, it is supplemented with peanut butter and benzyl alcohol. Several ester dosage variants are available.
This releases testosterone quickly and over a long period of time. As the substances are in the form of esters, their rapid absorption is observed. It outperforms propionate and ananthate, which are considered standard testosterones. Its development enabled important advances in this field. Other similar durations have a shorter duration.
Sustanon 250 can be attributed to the strongest anabolic steroids with a pronounced androgenic effect. With this consumption, the athlete makes significant progress in building muscle mass.
It has a gradual effect. The increase in testosterone levels is slow. This fully explains the extremely rare occurrence of side effects. To prevent loss of testosterone, it is recommended to take Nolvadex or Proveron during the course.
The steroid is used for several purposes:
Train the muscle. The growth rate may not be as fast or as strong as with higher concentrations of androgenic and anabolic components. However, the gradual growth of muscles gives a qualitative result. At the end of the stroke, the recoil effect is minimal.
increase forces. This property of the drug determines its use in powerlifting and powerlifting. Sustanon has very little impact on an athlete’s weight, allowing them to stay in their weight class.
Burn calories. The steroid also acts on several enzymes responsible for metabolic processes. This allows the athlete to dry their body.
Keep the right amount of fluid in your body. This feature prevents damage to ligaments, joints and muscle tissue. It should be noted that prolonged use of testosterone reduces collagen levels. This leads to various injuries. High acquired forces can also lead to this because the body is not ready for heavy loads.
Improved appetite. A lot of energy is needed due to the increase in androgens and various enzymes. An athlete eats more food so that the body receives enough nutrients to gain weight.
Increase red blood cells. Sustanon has a beneficial effect on blood composition. This increases the athlete’s endurance.
The steroid has a pronounced catabolic effect. This allows you to save the results by following a special diet. Thanks to this effect, you can control your diet and sleep. It also promotes endurance, allowing the athlete to train for a long time and recover as quickly as possible between workouts.
Ways to use Sustanon and the right course in sports
Due to the fact that 4 testosterone esters are used at the same time, the individual course is very effective. The optimal dose can only be determined by your doctor. The latter provides the athlete with its own diagnostic recommendations, which determine the current state of the bodybuilder’s body. Its duration is 8 weeks.
For experienced bodybuilders, the recommended dose is 500 mg per week. Beginners should start with 250 mg, which measures the body’s tolerance for substances in Sustanon. The duration of the introductory bodybuilding course should not exceed 6 weeks. At the same time, athletes use Sustanon in combination with other anabolic steroids to improve results. Thus, nandrolone allows you to strengthen relief after a course, and thanks to Winstrol, you can dry it off.
Possible side effects
Almost all drugs have unwanted effects. Sustanon 250 is no exception. These effects can be summarized in the following positions:
- Water begins to hang in the body.
- The skin becomes oily.
- Maybe the look of acne.
- Hair begins to grow on the face.
- The onset of premature alopecia (baldness) is not ruled out.
- The processes associated with the production of natural testosterone are inhibited.
- The athlete becomes irritated, up to the development of depression.
- It may be premature ejaculation.
- Pain may occur at the injection site.
- Decreased libido.
- Liver function is impaired.
- Development of hypercalcaemia is not excluded.
The duration and properties are entirely dependent on the longest steroid regimen and dose of sustanon used. The most important thing is to focus on the right goal – to preserve muscle mass. What to do during the treatment period after the cycle:
Restore the functionality of the testicles – first wait for the withdrawal of synthetic testosterone from the body, and then increase the level of natural (letrozole can be used for this purpose);
Normalize liver function – Cortisol is suitable for normalizing bilirubin in the blood:
Normalize your cholesterol level – plan your diet properly and focus on oily fish. The vitamin complex, as well as the intake of omega-3 acids, will not interfere.
Reduce the intensity of your workouts to lower your cortisol levels.
If the course did not last more than 10 weeks and the dose is 250 mg per week, it is enough to take Clomid at a dose of 50 mg / day for a month, and then for another two weeks – 25 mg / day.
If the regimen was close to hormone replacement therapy in duration and dosage, it would probably require a combined regimen of tamoxifen and clomid, in addition to taking a number of recovery medications, including chondroprotectors, vitamins E and B, and gonadotropin.
