Boldenon all the advantages and disadvantages
Boldenone, a steroid that was originally developed for veterinary use, but in recent years it has been increasingly used by athletes in sports. The drug has a similarity in its composition with testosterone, but at the same time it affects the human body in a different way. The main distinctive feature of it from other steroids is a positive effect on metabolic processes in the body, especially on the synthesis of proteins in the muscle mass, which actually attracts athletes.
The main effects of the drug include:
- The course of Boldenon allows you to slowly but surely build up quality muscle mass;
- increases appetite, which is important for the athlete, and this is the main reason for its use in livestock;
- Improves the strength and endurance of athletes;
- increases the number of erythrocytes in the blood, thereby improving the access of oxygen to muscle tissue;
- normalizes metabolic processes;
- improves protein synthesis in muscles.
One of the least toxic anabolic steroids.
Boldenone has almost no effect on liver function
. Androgenic effects of the drug are moderate, due to which such manifestations as baldness, acne and prostate hypertrophy, are diagnosed extremely rarely. Also, this factor makes it possible to use a steroid for women, which is considered a rare phenomenon, since most anabolics have high androgenic activity and because of this are not recommended for reception by a beautiful half.
From the side of estrogenic activity, manifestations in the form of puffiness or growth of mammary glands by the female type are practically not detected, even with a rather impressive dose of the drug.
The drug has an effect on the cardiovascular system, primarily as a result of increased cholesterol levels, but this effect is extremely negligible when taking Boldenone. At the time of taking any anabolic steroid, it is recommended to take fish oil four grams a day. In addition, the use of simple carbohydrates and saturated fats should be minimized.
If we consider the steroid profile, then Boldenon has 50% androgenic manifestations in comparison with testosterone, the anabolic property is the same in them, the level of estrogenic and progestogen activity in the drug is low, there is no effect on the liver. Such a component of the drug and makes it in demand in the circles of bodybuilders.
The course of Boldenon.
You can use the drug alone or in combination with other steroids. For individual admission, the recommended dose is one injection per week in the amount of 400-800 mg. A smaller dose is recognized as ineffective, and a large dose significantly increases the risk of side effects, despite the greater effectiveness. The course itself lasts for 8-10 weeks. At the end of the course, it is recommended to drink drugs that minimize the side effects after steroids, PCT (post-course therapy). For best results, you should combine the Boldenon reception with exercise and sports nutrition.
If you plan to resort to a combined course, for example, Boldenone and testosterone enanthate, the timing of admission should be reduced to six weeks.
There are several combined schemes
The first is the use of boldenone and testosterone enanthanum, Tamoxifen and Proviron can also be added to the course. This combination is recognized as the best for beginner bodybuilders, since Boldenon suppresses estrogenic and adrenogenic manifestations of testosterone, while increasing anabolic activity. Such a course is designed for a long period, from the first to the eighth week injections of testosterone enanthan in the amount of 500 mg and Boldenone 800 mg (this is a weekly dose). From the tenth week Proviron is added, with the eleventh Tamoxifen.
The high quality of the muscular mass is noted when applying the next course. Winstrol + Boldenone + Testosterone propionate. In the proportions Winstrol 50 mg. starting from the sixth week of the course. Boldenone 200 mg. and testosterone 100 mg. from the first to the tenth week. Achieve a dry muscle mass is obtained by adding to the course Winstrol.
For women, there are other dosages of the drug. They are significantly lower than for men and are on the order of 50-75 mg. in Week. Despite the fact that this is one of the few drugs that allows admission by his women, refers to the use, should be done with caution. The drug has a delayed effect, which prevents the control of the level of hormones in the blood and still may show signs of masculinization.
Often Boldenon is used to replace Nandrolone in the second cycle of the course, especially in those sports where athletes require endurance, since the unique property of the drug is the release of erythropoietin in the kidneys, which entails an increase in erythrocyte mass. Also, the steroid is ideal in the drying period, since it does not cause water accumulation in the muscle tissue, it is less effective for mass gain, but the action is simple, slower than, for example, in more aggressive anabolics.
Reviews Boldenon has positive, for all points (the severity of the effect, the quality of muscle mass, the incidence of side effects, the phenomenon of recoil, etc.) the drug scored more than 80% of the positive opinion of the athletes who took advantage of it.
From the history of drug discovery
As an anabolic steroid, Boldenon was first developed in 1949, the pharmacological company Ciba. In 50-60 years, a drug agent called Parenabol was released, its main focus was - treatment of osteoporosis and other diseases of the musculoskeletal system. But in the market of medicines for people, Boldenon did not stay long, since 1970 it was banned, and was used only in veterinary medicine, mainly for horses.
Similarity and differences with other steroids.
Boldenone is compared with various more familiar anabolics, such as Testosterone, Methandrostenolone, Nandrolone. But is there a similarity with these drugs, or does Boldenon have other qualities?
Boldenone and Methandrostenolone
The molecular composition of both steroids is almost identical, except for the methyl group in the 17 position. But just this difference and changes the structure of the molecule. The methyl group in Methandrostenolone significantly increases the level of side effects, especially in the negative effect on the liver. Also, methandrostenolone is not able to activate the androgen receptor, which is significantly inferior to Boldenone. These facts make significantly more harmful Methandrostenolone than, Boldenon. The identical effect is to increase appetite, which makes both these drugs desirable in bodybuilding.
Boldenone and Testosterone
In fact, Boldenon is considered a softer version of Testosterone, since the drug in question lacks the enzyme 5-a-reductase, which is the main difference. Both drugs stabilize the androgen receptor well and have non-genomic activity.
Boldenone and Nandrolone
Despite the dissimilarity of the molecular structure of medicines, they were the closest in their properties. In some cases, they are prescribed as interchangeable steroids. The difference between them in the non-genomic activity, which is more pronounced in Boldenon and the best progestagenic action on the part of Nandrolone, which allows him to increase muscle mass faster.
Preventive measures against side effects
Despite the fact that the drug is sparing and has the least negative impact on the body, it still remains a steroid and requires the implementation of certain rules to avoid side effects. Here are the main ones, which, incidentally, concern the reception and other anabolic steroids:
- regulate the dosage of the drug, do not exceed the recommended amount;
- the duration of the course should not exceed 12-16 weeks;
- systematically donate blood for biochemical analysis and hormonal background;
- take antiestrogens to control their own production of testosterone and prevent the development of gynecomastia (growth of mammary glands).
In any case, if you have decided to take the Boldenon course, even despite its minimal effect on the body, it is necessary to approach responsibly to the design of the reception scheme. In this regard, the ideal option will be to contact a specialist who will draw up an individual program that fits the best way for you.
