4. Testosterone Propionate Dosage(for your reference only)
Testosterone Propionate is regarded as a fairly popular and common anabolic steroid, as but to a far lesser extent than most other esterified variants of Testosterone. This is because of the previously mentioned aspect of inconvenience concerning Testosterone Propionate doses and dosing schedules, which will be further explained in more detail. Testosterone in any of its forms serves as an absolutely essential anabolic steroid that should be utilized in literally every single cycle, and there are no exceptions to this rule. Testosterone Propionate in particular is less commonly used as a first-time anabolic steroid by brand new beginners to the world of anabolic steroids. This is because of its short-acting nature with its short half-life necessitating frequent Testosterone Propionate doses (every other day injections at the very least), which presents a far greater degree of inconvenience for beginners, as the majority of newcomers might not enjoy such an inconvenient administration schedule. Therefore, Testosterone Enanthate and Testosterone Cypionate are far more popular and common choices among beginners, which only require two injections, administered every week.
It has been mentioned in the introduction that Testosterone itself possesses a moderate level of Estrogenic activity due to its moderate level of interaction with the aromatase enzyme. This should always be considered when Testosterone Propionate dosages are taken into account, as the level of aromatization and therefore Estrogenic activity will always be dose-dependent whereby Testosterone Propionate doses that are high enough for the purpose of physique and performance enhancement will always be high enough to promote notable amounts of aromatization. The higher the dose of an aromatizable androgen (such as Testosterone) that is used, increasing rates of aromatization will result. At the very least, moderate amounts of an aromatase inhibitor is always advised on a cycle involving bodybuilding doses of Testosterone, but this will be covered in greater detail in the side effects section of this profile.
An extremely important point must be made clear to the reader before the example cycles are listed is the fact that Testosterone should at all times be considered the base compound of any and all anabolic steroid cycles. It should also be the very first and only compound utilized in a first-time beginner cycle, and the various reasons are as follows:
1. Testosterone’s secured spot in every single anabolic steroid cycle is absolutely necessary every single time. For the duration of anabolic steroid cycles, endogenous natural production of Testosterone will always become suppressed and/or completely shut down due to the use of exogenous androgens. The use of some form of exogenous Testosterone is always a necessity in order to maintain normal physiological functions that are governed by Testosterone in the absence of proper endogenous Testosterone levels.
2. Testosterone is the only anabolic steroid that without a doubt can be used on its own, and it frequently is used solitarily by many athletes and bodybuilders. The reason for the ability of solitary use is related to the first point made above.
3. Testosterone is one of the most versatile anabolic steroids in terms of its dosing schemes and its manner of use in cycles. It acts as an excellent bulking and strength agent, an excellent mass building compound, and can also be utilized effectively for cutting cycles and fat loss phases.
