The standard dose of Sustanon (250-500 mg per week) provides a very good result. Due to the simultaneous action of 4 different types of testosterone, you can easily do with smaller doses of the drug. Besides, Sustanon has less adverse effects on the liver and endocrine system. As a rule, Sustanon is combined with Methandienone (oral steroid), and Nandrolone (injectable steroid).
The drug usually starts to work within 1 day after injection. Sustanon has a strong androgenic and at the same time anabolic action. It works as a good muscle-building material and helps improve strength. In addition, the drug is ideal for those athletes who can’t use other types of testosterone (with a high level of aromatization).
The optimal dosage of the drug should not be more than 1000 mg per week. As of today, Sustanon is a well-known anabolic steroid showing long duration of action and positive results. It can be combined with other drugs depending on what goals an athlete wants to achieve. If you need a quick muscle growth, then you should combine Sustanon with Deca-Durabolin, and if your highest priority is to change your muscular quality, then combine the drug with Winstrol, Oxandrolone and Primobolan.
Sustanon may have the following side effects: acne, hair loss, oily skin, violation of the synthesis of sex hormones, gynecomastia. It is contraindicated for women. The majority of athletes who use this drug are satisfied with its effect. The drug can increase your lean muscle mass, boost endurance and help you function at high levels.
Sustanon in medicine
Doctors use this drug in case of insufficient secretion of testosterone in the patient. Sustanon is used to treat delayed puberty in boys, impotence, and infertility. It is sometimes used in women for the treatment of osteoporosis, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, uterine fibroids.
Sustanon in sports
Sustanon is popular among athletes and bodybuilders. The drug improves blood circulation, improves oxygen transport and helps boost endurance. Sustanon has a distinct androgenic effect, which is combined with a strong anabolic effect. Therefore, it is perfect for strength and muscle mass. Sustanon helps accumulate much less water in comparison with other steroids. In practice, many bodybuilders who have problems with significant accumulation of water and high estrogen levels prefer using Sustanon. It is worth mentioning that Sustanon works well even in professional athletes and in relatively small doses. Besides, it gives the same good results in athletes who use Sustanon regularly. Sustanon is often injected once a week, with an interval between injections up to 10 days. The usual dosage ranges from 250 mg every 2 weeks up to 1000 mg or more per day. Fortunately, in most cases you don’t have to use high doses (usually 250-1000 mg per week). Most athletes prefer using 500 mg per week or only 250 mg per week (in this case, Sustanon is combined with other oral steroid). Sustanon is often combined with Deca-Durabolin, Dianabol or Anadrol for quick muscle building, while some athletes combine it with Parabolan, Winstrol, Oxandrolone or Primobolan.
Although Sustanon almost does not aromatize when used at reasonable doses, many athletes still take anti-estrogens (for example, Nolvadex or Proviron) to avoid negative side effects. Women should not take Sustanon to avoid symptoms of androgen excess (virilization). Besides, beginners should stay away from all testosterone compounds, including Sustanon.
It is believed that Sustanon remains active for about three weeks. Nevertheless, the injection should be done at least once every 10 days. Effective Sustanon dosages: from 250 mg every 10 days to 1000 mg weekly. Some athletes use higher dosages, but this is really not recommended. If the dose exceeds 750-1000 mg per week, the potential side effects will outweigh the additional benefits. Athletes can combine multiple drugs instead of taking large doses of Sustanon (for example, Anadrol and Dianabol). On the other hand, you may use Trenbolone and Winstrol for lean body mass. Such combination of steroids provides a better effect. Besides, it helps reduce the probability of adverse reactions.
After you have finished the course, you can use drugs such as Clomid or Nolvadex in order to avoid hormonal imbalance.
Note that Sustanon remains active for four weeks after the last injection. Do not start the post cycle therapy immediately after Sustanon course (it should be delayed for 2-3 weeks).
Sustanon has much more benefits than disadvantages. No wonder it is so popular among athletes trying to achieve impressive results.
Sustanon helps gain weight and build muscle quickly. The drug can stimulate appetite. Besides, it helps increase the level of red blood cells and provide better endurance. In general, Sustanon side effects are almost never dangerous. The negative side effects may occur only when the athlete is taking too large doses of the drug.
Sustanon side effects
Side effects of Sustanon are similar to the side effects of Testosterone Enanthate. Athletes using Sustanon can experience androgenic side effects such as acne, oily skin, depression, irritability, hair loss, reduced production of sex hormones, premature ejaculation, abnormal liver function, edema and gynecomastia. Large doses of Sustanon lead to inhibition of the synthesis of testosterone – this in turn can lead to testicular atrophy. Therefore, it is not recommended to use Sustanon longer than 8 weeks. Besides, Sustanon may lead to increased blood pressure, atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular diseases. In order to avoid tragic consequences, it is recommended to use this drug carefully and at moderate doses. Follow some simple rules:
- Do not exceed the recommended dose and do not increase the duration of the course;
- Take Sustanon simultaneously with anti-estrogens;
- Use non-androgenic oral steroids;
- Do not forget about the post cycle therapy to restore your natural hormone levels.
