Primobolan is an injectable steroid contains Methenolone Enanthate.
Primobolan is the injectable version of the steroid Methenolone and, although it produces a weaker effect than Deca Durabolin it is a very good basic steroid whose effects are predominantly anabolic. The fact that an Enanthate ester is added to this steroid enables a slow and gradual release from the injection site. This addition allows for a longer half-life of approx 14 days (similar to Testosterone Enanthate) although most athletes prefer to administer it on a weekly basis.
Primobolan popularity stems from the fact that it is the only steroid that seems to work well on a low calorie diet (making it a pre-contest drug of choice) and side effects are rarely a problem since it is relatively non toxic, low in androgens and it does not convert to estrogen (aromatize) therefore estrogen related side effects are not an issue. In addition to this it seems to have a positive effect on the immune system (thus its popular use in Aids patients) and the fact that it adds primarily lean mass leads to a strengthening of the whole body system.
Primobolan is commonly used by those who wish to keep oestrogen and androgenic related side effects to a minimum. Primobolan is also a popular choice for cutting cycles due its mild anabolic properties which may be best suited for sustaining muscle tissue under strict pre-content dieting. Excessive subcutaneous fluids will also not be a concern due to Primobolan being a non-aromatising steroid. The compound could also be added to bulking cycles to heighten the anabolic nature of the cycle whilst minimising adding to the overall oestrogen and androgenic side effects.
Androgenic related side effects are usually only confined to the sensitive individuals, or those who opt to take the larger dosages of the product. Primobolan is often regarded as a safe steroid in comparison to other products, and it is a very sought after product which reflects in its cost. A dose of 400 mg a week has been shown to provide decent gains, but higher doses are common, with many claiming 600 – 800 mg a week will provide a much better yield in muscle size whilst not causing too much in terms of side effects. As we rise the dose we can expect the androgenic side effects to become more pronounced, so its down to the user to see what dose provides fruitful when weighing up the side effects to net positive gains.
