Among all the etheric compounds of the male hormone, Undecanoate is the longest. And the competitor to him can be only Buciclate. Working on a new drug, pharmacists pursued one goal - to reduce the number of injections during hormone replacement therapy. He should have replaced one of the most popular sports drugs – Sustanon.
Qualities and effects of Testosterone Undecanoate
The first injectable drug basing on Testosterone Undecanoat appeared in 2004 thanks to the staff of the German pharmaceutical company Schering. As already mentioned above, it’s immediately became actively used in medicine. However, all anabolic steroids based on the male hormone are very popular among athletes. It’s quite obvious that Testosterone Undecanoate has small differences from other prolonged steroids, if you don’t take into account the period of semi-life.
However, the information about the positive qualities of this drug will definitely be useful for beginning bodybuilders:
All the anabolics, in addition to positive qualities, have some negative ones. Regarding Testosterone Undecanoate, first of all it’s a gynecomastia. The causes of this side effect are related to the ability of the drug to aromatize. However, today there are effective means to fight with estrogenic side effects - aromatase inhibitors.
No less serious negative effect during the drug courses is the suppression of the work of the HPT (hypothalamus, pituitary, testes) axis. This is typical for all AAS, even the lightest. If you don’t take any measures to correct the situation, then the work of the endocrine system is normalized only a few months after steroid withdrawal.
This shouldn’t be allowed, especially with the using AAS in high dosages. When anabolic drugs are used for more than ten weeks, Gonadotropin must be included into the course. We note that it should be taken directly on the course, and not during the PCT period.
Application rules and dosages of Testosterone Undecanoate
The weekly dosage of the drug is from 250 to 500 milligrams. Because of the long semi-life period, the drug can be injected once every two weeks. However, experienced bodybuilders recommend putting the injections once every week. Like all etheric compounds of male hormone, this drug is subject to aromatization. To eliminate the negative effects of estrogenic type, it’s necessary to enter aromatase inhibitors into the cycle.
The combined use of the steroid will help you to get the best results. The rules of taking such courses are similar to other esters testo, like, Enanthate or Sustanon. For example, a combination of Testosterone Undecanoate and Nandrolone Decanoate can be considered an excellent mass-gathering course. The first AAS enter weekly at a dosage of 500 milligrams. Prolonged Nandrolone ether is used at a similar frequency, but at a dosage of 200 milligrams.
It’s also possible to use Methandienone, Trenbolone Enanthate, Oxymetholone during the mass-gathering period. If it’s necessary to improve the quality of the results, then it’s worth choosing Boldenone, Winstrol, Primobolan, Trenbolone Acetate.
