Primobolan (Methenolone Enanthate)
Methenolone is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) or more specifically a structurally altered version. The composition of the hormone is DHT with an added double bond at carbon positions one and two. This greatly increases the steroid’s anabolic nature. It also carries an added 1-methyl group, which in-turn protects the hormone from hepatic breakdown. The enanthate ester is added in an effort to control the hormone’s release time slowing it down substantially.
In its direct functioning capacity, Primobolan Depot offers several traits commonly found in anabolic steroids. The hormone has the ability to enhance protein synthesis and increase red blood cell count, as well as inhibit glucocorticoid hormones in the body. Where this steroid truly shines is in its ability to promote nitrogen retention in the muscles, as well as it possessing a strong binding affinity for the androgen receptor. The enhanced nitrogen retention is important due to the fact that all muscle tissue is comprised of approximately 16% nitrogen. Low nitrogen levels will lead to a catabolic state, where as the more we retain the more anabolic we remain. Then we have the androgen receptor binding, this is important as such a trait has been linked to lipolysis. Almost all anabolic steroids promote a stronger and more powerful metabolism, but the strong binding affinity for the androgen receptor actually promotes direct fat loss. Coupled with the enhanced nitrogen retention, this makes Primobolan an excellent cutting steroid.
The ability of Primobolan Depot to enhance the immune system can also be very beneficial to every day steroid users. If your immune system is stronger, you’ll be healthier and have an easier time reaching your goals. But in the case of a cutting cycle it can be extremely valuable as immune systems often become a little weaker during a hard diet. This can hold very true among competitive bodybuilders who often go through diets for several months most people could not endure for a week.
When it comes to off-season use, we can, however, make an exception for females. Women are far more sensitive to the hormonal compound, and it may very well provide the anabolic boost they need for off-season growth. As a bonus, due to the metabolic enhancement and fat burning properties of this steroid, you will be able to gain off-season muscle mass with less body fat accumulation that would otherwise occur.
From off-season bulking the next point of discussion will be the cutting phase. Without question, man or woman this will be the best time to use Primobolan. This is a fantastic steroid for protecting hard earned muscle tissue. Through this necessary caloric reduction, this can put our lean muscle at risk. This is a steroid that cannot promote water retention as it lacks any estrogenic activity. Due to this fact any weight gained due to use will be 100% pure lean muscle mass.
Primobolan Depot also has the ability to promote increases in strength and will have a positive affect on muscular endurance and recovery. By supplementing with Primobolan Depot, we ensure our muscle mass is protected and fat is lost. We also ensure body fat is burned at a far more efficient rate. Those who use Primobolan Depot in this phase will also notice they are much harder and defined once body fat is low.
For the male athlete, 300mg per week is normally considered the low end dose. As this is a relatively mild anabolic steroid, most men will find they can tolerate 400-500mg per week very well. Even 600mg per week should be well within the realm of control for most men. Regardless of the total dosing, 8-12 weeks of total use is normally recommended. As for stacking, Primobolan Depot will stack well with most all anabolic steroids. As it will most commonly be used during the cutting phase steroids like Oxandrolone, Masteron, Trenbolone and Stanozolol are all common additions.
For the female athlete, 50-200mg per week is generally all the Primobolan they will need. Most women will find 4-6 weeks of use to be more than enough. Many women find stacks of Anavar and Primobolan to be very beneficial with the Methenolone only making up 4 weeks of a total 8 week cycle.
