Many strength athletes try to gain muscle mass by taking steroid drugs. However, some of them have a negative effect on your health, so experts advise using a muscle-enhancing drug called testosterone. The latter is also designed for body drying to get rid of subcutaneous fatty deposits. The action allows you to give your muscles a sculpted appearance. Injecting Testosterone Phenylpropionate, a male hormone derivative, has a longer lasting effect compared to Enanthate, but less than Propionate.
Phenylpropionate is an ester of male sex hormone biologically active substances, otherwise known as Testosterone Hydrocynamate. It appears to be an androgenic-anabolic steroid. The ether compound is the middle link between the propionate and the enanthate, which makes the first one effective, if the second one is not injected frequently. Testosterone Phenylpropionate is taken twice or thrice a week, which suits most athletes.
Mechanism of Action
The mechanism of action of this ester is that it increases the body’s ability to retain nitric oxide in the muscles, thus increasing the recovery capacity by improving the capacity of the blood vessels. Testosterone also increases somatomedin or insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) levels in muscle tissue and the liver, in turn triggering the formation of new muscle fibres. It also enhances the division of the so-called undifferentiated cells, which are crucial for the regeneration of damaged muscle tissue.
Effects of use
The action of this ester differs little from that of other forms of testosterone. The only adjustment is an earlier onset of action and a higher rate of absorption into the bloodstream. Some users have also noticed an increase in muscular density and fat burning inherent to its closest relative, testosterone propionate. In addition, the rebound effect after a course with phenyl is quite minimal. Because of this, it is often used for lean bodybuilding. A more detailed list of effects follows below:
- Certainly, an increase in strength and growth of muscle mass, resulting from a significant increase in protein synthesis and acceleration of satellite cell division. The effects of the product on insulin-like growth factor in body tissues have also been observed. However, one should not expect that testosterone phenylpropionate will lead to a significant weight gain, since its solo form is better suited for lean muscle training or for increasing strength parameters without any significant weight gain.
- As stated above, the compound works exceptionally well during fat-burning periods because of its ability to help maintain muscle mass during strict diets. However, it also has a pronounced fat-burning effect, which can significantly alter an athlete’s body composition, especially in combination with fat-boosters such as clenbuterol and triiodothyronine.
- Less pronounced fluid retention compared to other testosterone esters. This effect will be very attractive for those who aim at gaining pure muscle mass and increasing visual ‘quality’ and ‘ripeness’ of muscles. Therefore, the product can be used shortly before entering a competition arena.
Testosterone phenylpropionate course
The average dose is 200 (with possible variations up or down depending on personality or other steroids present on the course) milligrams given every three days or twice weekly. The optimal duration of a course is 6-8 weeks.
Testosterone phenylpropionate combines well with most anabolic steroids. The most common opinions are that it works well in combination with Turinabol, Stanazolol, and Methandienone.
During pre-exposure treatment, clomiphene citrate should be used according to a popular “light” or “medium” regimen developed by a specialist known in the trade. At high duration, additional gonadotropin administration is recommended to maintain secretory function of the sex glands and hypothalamus/pituitary gland.
