Boldenone Undecylenate (Equipoise)
Boldenone, also known commercially as Equipoise or EQ, is a veterinarian steroid created by Ciba as an injectable form of Dianabol. Its initial use was for the horse and cattle industries. In general, Equipoise is an oil suspension that can be injected into animals every 6 weeks. There are no legitimate version of this steroid approved by any government anywhere in the world for human use. All brands on the market are either from approved veterinarian labs or made in an underground laboratories. Even though it is meant as veterinarian steroid, it’s quite powerful and effective when used by humans.
What is Equipoise used for in bodybuilding?
Equipoise is often used to obtain quality lean mass and increase strength and muscular endurance, even though results are quite slow if compared with other products. EQ can be used alone or stacked with other anabolic steroids. Recovery is also enhanced with the use of Equipoise, especially in case of joints pain. Also, Equipoise does not cause stress or damage to the liver and it is available only as an injectable.
In a cutting cycle, Equipoise works very well to protect lean muscle mass. As it happens when cutting, calories are lean muscle tissue may disappear in order to sustain the energy the body needs. Using Equipoise while cutting will prevent this and will add some conditioning effects to the physique. Experienced steroid users use Boldenone at the end of their cutting cycle due to the possibility of estrogenic activity.
What are Boldenone side effects?
Boldenone is usually well accepted by both male and female users. The most common side effects is water retention, which can lead to an increase in blood pressure. Other known side effects are acne, hair loss (if the user is already predisposed to baldness), and body hair growth. However, while the possibility of side effects exists, they are not likely to show unless there is an excessive intake or the user has an existing condition of acne and hair loss. Women may also experience these side effects plus a deepening of the voice and an increase in facial hair.
Equipoise does not put much strain on the cardiovascular system, so the cholesterol levels are likely to remain the same if the user is healthy.
Like all steroids, Equipoise will impact negatively on the body’s natural testosterone production. Therefore, a Boldenone cycle will almost always include testosterone.
Equipoise cycle for beginners
As Equipoise is a slow-working steroid, cycles are quite long. A classic Equipoise cycle for beginners would go for 14 weeks and use also Testosterone Enanthate as the base steroid. Dosage for both steroids will be 300-500 mg per week.
Equipoise cycle for intermediate users
For intermediate users, the cycle is the same, lasting 14 weeks and combining Equipoise with Testosterone Enanthate. Dosage will be 500-700 mg per week for both steroids.
Equipoise cycle for experienced users
A common cycle for experienced users lasts 14 weeks and increase the dosage of both steroids to 700-1000 mg per week.
Equipoise Post Cycle Therapy (PCT)
Post Cycle Therapy or PCT is an essential process every athlete must go through after the cycle has ended. The objective f any PCT is to get the body back to its normal state so it can start naturally producing testosterone again.
Equipoise PCT can start as early as 2-3 days after the last injection but this a personal choice. Obviously the longer the Equipoise-Testosterone cycle, the longer the PCT. Common Equipoise PCT last 4 weeks and begin 2-3 weeks after the cycle has ended. Any Equipoise PCT can be based on Clomid, Arimidex and/or Nolvadex. All these 3 products have some visible side effects, like headaches, nausea and stomach pains. Arimidex is the mildest. These side effects however vary from person to person. Regardless of which drug one wishes to use in an Equipoise PCT, it is good practice to start with a higher dose and reduce until the end of the cycle. Dosage is 0.5-1 mg a day.
