Nadrodur, also known as Deca Durabolin or nandrolone decanoate, is perhaps the second-best known injectable anabolic steroid after testosterone. 

In earlier years, testosterone and nandrolone were the only pharmaceutical injectables that were both widely available to bodybuilders and economical. Estrogen control did not then exist. For this reason, Deca’s low aromatizing properties were then quite useful. Deca therefore won wide popularity. Even though in on itself is a weak oestrogen receptor agonist as well as a very weak progesterone.

Nandrodur has a quite a few advantages, over long term use its a potent anti-inflammatory which explains the myth that deca “lubricates joints”. It has very few androgenic side effects like acne or male pattern alopecia, and small risk of gynecomastia. 

Its drawbacks are the same as its advantages, being a very weak androgen it can cause transient problems in libido (low sexual desire or impotence) and its famous for causing depressive symptoms in some users.

Strombaject (water suspension of stanozolol) differs from nearly all other injectables in being 17-alkylated, a property more typically associated with oral anabolic steroids. This results in liver toxicity not usually associated with injectables. Further, in terms of liver toxicity Strombaject may be more potent (have more effect per milligram) than most other alkylated steroids: for this reason the injected amount should be limited to 50 mg/day, and period of use to be limited to 6 – 8 weeks.

It can add to mass gains but more usually is used for cutting, hardening, or increasing speed or strength without necessarily increasing muscle mass. Adverse side effects particular to Winstrol and different from other injectable anabolic steroids include liver toxicity, occasional joint problems, and possibly tendon brittleness.

Testoprop is the primary male sex hormone. It is the responsible for producing mainly male-specific sexual traits. When synthesised, it is usually attached to an ester to delay its release into the body. Testosterone Propionate is the shortest commonly ester attached to the Testosterone hormone. This means it takes your body the least amount of time to rid itself of the ester and release the parent hormone into the body. Due to its short active life, testosterone propionate typically needs to be injected every other day at a minimum. 

Anecdotally, testosterone propionate causes the least side effects like water retention and gynecomastia; these side effects usually subside very quickly when use is ceased. This is backed up in theory by the fact that testosteprop will produce fluctuating levels of the hormone in the body reducing the enzymic adaptations that will increase aromatisation. 

Cypiotest is a long-acting version of testosterone, when injected, it becomes stored in what is known as a depot in the body, and slowly released over a short period of time. Peaking within 1-2 days after injection, the testosterone is then steadily released over the next 12 days and completely tapers out after approximately 3 weeks.

Testosterone is responsible for promoting health and well being through enhanced libido, energy, immunity, increased fat loss, gaining and maintaining lean muscle mass, preventing Osteoporosis (loss of bone density), and possible protection against heart disease. Testosterone is also responsible for normal growth and development of male sex organs and maintenance of secondary sex characteristics. Secondary s ex characteristics are specific traits that separate the two sexes, but are not directly part of the reproductive system, for example: chest and facial hair, a distinguished jaw line, broad shoulders and increased muscle mass. 

Testosterone binds to the Androgen Receptors (AR), which thus causes accelerated muscle gain, fat loss, and muscle repair and growth. These mechanisms are stimulated by activation of the Androgen Receptors (either directly or as DHT), as well as through a hormonal cascade.

Drolban (dromostanolone propionate, also known as drostanolone propionate) is essentially an injectable version of Dehydrotestosterone (DHT), the primary androgenic hormone.

Many have called Masteron a “weak” steroid, but this definitely is not the case. What often has been weak has been the doses which get confused with volume of injections. For example testosterone or nandrolone are potent at 500-600mg per week which due to concentration is something like 2-3 ml. The equivalent in Drolban would be 6ml/week or 600mg which is a very potent (possibly more so than either testosterone or nandrolone) dose.

Masteron undergoes no aromatization (conversion to estrogen), no conversion to DHT or potentiation by the 5-AR enzyme, and as an unalkylated steroid it poses no liver issues. In these regards and also in overall side effects, Masteron is best compared with Primobolan Depot.In terms of positive effects in an anabolic steroid cycle, Masteron is at least as effective as Primobolan per milligram for mass gain and for fat loss, and appears better for hardening.

Trenenan is a19-nor steroid, very similar to Nandrolone. The primary difference between Trenbolone is that there is a double carbon bond present at the 9 and 11 position on the steran nucleus. Trenbolone can not aromatize to estrogen nor be 5a-reduced.

It bonds very tightly to the Androgen Receptor, and for this reason it is thought that much of its fat-burning and muscle building abilities are receptor mediated.

Trenbolone Enanthate use produces an impressive amount of new muscle fiber, with minimal water retention. This may be done partly through an increase in IGF-1 within muscle tissue, and increased sensitivity of muscle satellite to IGF-1 and other growth factor and an increase in the amount of DNA per muscle cell.

It has a very strong binding affinity to the androgen receptor, binding much more strongly than testosterone as well as nandrolone.

Trenbolone increases both protein synthesis as well as nitrogen retention in muscle tissue. Trenbolone can also bind with the (anti-anabolic) glucocorticoid receptor, thus aiding the muscle building process.

Finally, it also has the ability to improve nutrient efficiency and mineral absorption in animals given the drug.

There are a few warnings that go with Trenbolone, the main being its high incident of psychological side effects, mostly mood disorders like depression or hypomania and anxiety. The enanthate ester seems to cause lower incidents of those probably due to more stable blood levels.

Trenacet is a19-nor steroid, very similar to Nandrolone. The primary difference between Trenbolone is that there is a double carbon bond present at the 9 and 11 position on the steran nucleus. Trenbolone can not aromatize to estrogen nor be 5a-reduced.

It bonds very tightly to the Androgen Receptor, and for this reason it is thought that much of its fat-burning and muscle building abilities are receptor mediated.

Trenbolone Acetate use produces an impressive amount of new muscle fiber, with minimal water retention. This may be done partly through an increase in IGF-1 within muscle tissue, and increased sensitivity of muscle satellite to IGF-1 and other growth factor and an increase in the amount of DNA per muscle cell.

It has a very strong binding affinity to the androgen receptor, binding much more strongly than testosterone as well as nandrolone.

Trenbolone increases both protein synthesis as well as nitrogen retention in muscle tissue. Trenbolone can also bind with the (anti-anabolic) glucocorticoid receptor, thus aiding the muscle building process.

There are a few warnings that go with Trenbolone, the main being its high incident of psychological side effects, mostly mood disorders like depression or hypomania and anxiety. The acetate ester in particular is notorious for both its extreme strength gains as well as pronounced side effects. On a positive note it clears the body quite fast if the side effects prove to be intolerable.

Equibol (Boldenone Undecylenate) is a structurally altered form of testosterone. It is a very slight change in an added double bond at the carbon one and two position. This double bond greatly reduces the hormone’s androgenicity, as well as estrogenic nature. It is then attached to the very large or long Undecylenate ester, which is responsible for controlling the release of the hormone once administered into the body. The Undecylenate ester allows for a peak release in Boldenone approximately 3-4 days after injection, with a slow continuous release of the hormone to follow for approximately 21 days.

Due to its structural change, Equibol only aromatizes at approximately 50% the rate of testosterone. Estrogenic side effects are possible, but the odds are highly in the individual’s favor compared to testosterone. It is not as powerful of a mass builder as testosterone, not even close, but the reduced estrogenic activity should allow the individual to make cleaner gains through supplementation.

Equibol shares many similarities regarding direct enhancement properties with testosterone. Common shared properties include its ability to enhance protein synthesis, nitrogen retention in the muscles, inhibit glucocorticoid hormones and increase IGF-1 output. Equibol is also well known for increasing red blood cell count, a trait shared by most all anabolic steroids. However, issues of concern have been noted regarding how much Equibol can increase red blood cell count. But available data tends to support this only being a concern with extremely high dose use for extremely long periods of time. In many ways, the increase in red blood cells provided by Equibol can be fast and rapid, but may not present a significant advantage or disadvantage compared to most anabolic steroids when used responsibly. Without question, a moderate increase in cell production would be very advantageous for most any athlete.

There is a myth perpetuating that Equibol is similar to Nandrodur. This is far from the truth. Equibol has the unique characteristic that it has testosterone as one of its metabolites, meaning that it can be used for stand alone cycles in doses over 600mg while nandrolone cannot.

Testomix (also known as sustanon) contains, per mL, short-acting testosterone propionate, 60 mg of testosterone phenylpropionate, 60 mg of testosterone isocaproate, and 100 mg of testosterone decanoate. The first, testosterone propionate, is short-acting and gives Sustanon a quick onset of action in a steroid cycle. The other esters are medium to long-acting.

Side effects of Testomix are, for the same amount of testosterone, identical to other testosterone esters such as testenan.

Nibal commonly known as primobolan (methonolone enanthate) is often of interest to beginning steroid users and sometimes to experienced users, for the same reason: Its supposed mildly androgenic character.

contrary to common opinion, Nibal really is not a weak steroid, at least not on a milligram for milligram basis. It certainly is not weak in terms of anabolic effect versus side effects. It is a good performer in these regards. However, because the oil solubility of methenolone enanthate is only moderate, preparations are typically of only 100 mg/mL. This can give a psychological impression of not being as strong a compound as more concentrated products.

Another likely reason for perceived weakness is that it is most often used for anabolic steroid cycles which deliberately are very conservative. For example, a classic beginner cycle is 400 mg/week Nibal as the only steroid used. Of course, this does not give extreme gains. But then again neither does 400 mg/week testosterone.

With most anabolic steroids or anabolic steroid stacks, total use needs to be at least 500 mg/week and more preferably 700-1000 mg/week before a cycle is likely to be highly effective. This rule is no different when Nibal is used as the sole anabolic steroid or as part of a performance-enhancing stack (combination of drugs.)

Testenan is a long-acting version of testosterone, when injected, it becomes stored in what is known as a depot in the body, and slowly released over a short period of time. Peaking within 1-2 days after injection, the testosterone is then steadily released over the next 12 days and completely tapers out after approximately 3 weeks.

Testosterone is responsible for promoting health and well being through enhanced libido, energy, immunity, increased fat loss, gaining and maintaining lean muscle mass, preventing Osteoporosis (loss of bone density), and possible protection against heart disease.

Testosterone binds to the Androgen Receptors (AR), which thus causes accelerated muscle gain, fat loss, and muscle repair and growth. These mechanisms are stimulated by activation of the Androgen Receptors (either directly or as DHT), as well as through a hormonal cascade.

Testenan is the most popular form of testosterone prescribed everywhere in the world except for the United States, where the very similar Cypiotest is typically preferred.

Supertest is a 400mg/ml mix of short and long testosterone esters, it thus has a very similar profile to Testomix. Due to concentration some injection discomfort is to be expected, Supertest is usualy mixed with other compounds that mitigate that

Oxysterone (oxymetholone) is most likely second only to Methandon (methandrostenolone) as a bodybuilding anabolic steroid. Additionally, it has had considerable medical importance particularly for treatment of anemia, and more recently to help maintain lean body mass in HIV-compromised patients. 

While many have the subjective opinion that Oxysterone is a harsh drug in terms of side effects, medical findings and the findings of many athletes are quite different. Per milligram, Oxysterone appears less liver toxic than any other alkylated anabolic steroid, but per amount of anabolic effect, the ratio of toxicity to anabolic effect seems similar. appears less liver toxic than any other alkylated anabolic steroid, but per amount of anabolic effect, the ratio of toxicity to anabolic effect seems similar.

The main problem for some is oestrogen control because it appears that even though Oxysterone is a DHT derivative it has some estrogenic activity. Although depending on dosage this can be advantageous due to some oestrogen activity being necessary for the male brain.

Methandon (methandrostenolone, methandienone) has been one of the most important anabolic steroids in bodybuilding ever since its introduction in 1958. Also commonly known as “Dbol”, this oral compound is best used for steroid cycles in combination with injectable steroids, but can be of value used alone as well.

The effect of most injectable anabolic steroids is greatly enhanced by addition of Methandon. The improvement is greater than from simply increasing the amount of injectable by the same amount. A classic and dramatic example is trenbolone. Though the total amount of steroid used is the same in all three cases, 50 mg/day each of trenbolone acetate stacked with 50 mg/day Methandon provides a far more effective steroid cycle than either 100 mg/day of trenbolone acetate alone or 100 mg/day Dbol alone. The side effect profile is superior as well. In other words, the compounds act synergistically: the whole is greater than the parts. This is likely due to differing mechanisms of action.

As a stand alone Methandon is quite potent at doses upwards of 20mg/ed whith a favourable side effects profile for most people.

Oxavar or Oxandrolone is specifically a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) hormone that has been structurally altered. It is DHT with an added oxygen atom replacing the carbon-2 in the A-ring. This alteration greatly increases the hormone’s anabolic activity, as well as prevents it from being metabolically broken down. Oxavar also possesses a second alteration at the 17th carbon position by the addition of a methyl group that allows the hormone to be ingested orally officially classifying Oxavar as a C17-aa anabolic steroid.

Oxavar is one of the few anabolic steroids that can be used safely by men and women, and it’s also one of the most side effect friendly. However, in some circles Oxavar is greatly underappreciated due to its apparent mild nature. The reason is that bodybuilders and authors in the field sometimes make unfortunate and unreasonable comparisons when judging anabolic steroids. If say 8 tablets per day does little, then a drug is pronounced useless or weak. And traditionally, oxandrolone was available in 2.5 mg Anavar tablets, proving only 20 mg daily with such usage, which totals to only 140 mg/week. 

For comparison, testosterone at that dose also gives little results. Indeed, few anabolic steroids give dramatic results at that dose, but they are not called weak on that account. The proper conclusion is that such Oxavar tablets were individually weak, but not that the drug lacks potency.

Stromba (stanozolol) is a potent anabolic, but also binds to the progesterone receptor and to LAGS in the liver. In muscle tissue, Stromba has been found to stimulate immediate-early gene expression by a means independent of the androgen receptor.

Stanozolol can stimulate the production of prostaglandin E2 and the matrix metalloproteases collegenase and stromelysin in skin fibroblasts. It has been found to inhibit growth factor stimulated DNA synthesis and fibroblasts. Winstrol has substantial fibrinolytic properties, and has been effective in the treatment of urticaria, Raynaud’s phenomenon, cryptofibrinogenemia, and lipodermatosclerosis. 

It influences some immunological processes. Stromba has been found to increase lymphocyte count and CD8+ cell numbers, but to decrease CD4+ and CD3+ in postmenopausal women using it for osteoporosis.

Generaly its concidered having a relatively low anabolic profile, with more emphasis on androgenic characteristics which means it increases strength and aggression.  

One of its distinguishing characteristics is that it sometimes causes joint pain.

Clorodienone, officially known as 4-chlorodehydromethyltestosterone (or oral turinabol) is basically a structurally altered form of Methadon (Methandrostenolone), which itself is a derivative of testosterone. The compound is simply the testosterone hormone with an added double bond at carbon 1 and 2, which alters the anabolic to androgenic ratio in favor of anabolic. It also carries an added Chloro group at carbon 4, which inhibits the hormone from aromatizing and further reduces its androgenic nature.

Like most anabolic steroids it should have a positive impact on protein synthesis and nitrogen retention, as well as in increasing red blood cell count. 

The mild nature of Oral Turinabol makes it very appealing but there is another trait that greatly enhances its worthwhile. This steroid has the ability to significantly reduce Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG). It doesn’t carry this ability as strongly as a few other steroids but it is still more than notable. This reduction in SHBG allows for more active and available free testosterone. Perhaps more importantly, it keeps the other steroids you may be using from falling into a bound state. Basically the individual should be able to get more out of the other steroids being used without a need for increasing the dose simply due to the synergy created by Oral Turinabol.

Clenbuterol is a beta-receptor agonist drug used in the treatment of asthma and in bodybuilding for the purpose of fat loss. In some instances, it can also be used to enhance performance in endurance exercise.

The effective dose range of clenbuterol extends from 20 mcg/day as a minimum value to 40-140 mcg/day as more common values. I think it best to start at 40 mcg/day and evaluate results on an ongoing basis, increasing dose by 20 mcg at a time as necessary. Many users adjust dosage to the level where the hands begin to shake, but fat loss can be improved markedly with doses well below this point.

Clenbuterol should be cycled rather than used continuously or for prolonged periods of time, but no exact cycling pattern is necessary. Period of use is typically from 2 to 8 weeks. 

Fluosterone (fluoxymesterone) is a halogenated derivative of 17-alpha-methyltestosterone. Contrary to what one might expect, Fluosterone has poor binding to the Androgen Receptor (AR). Presumably the effects of fluoxymesterone are largely non-AR mediated. Fluosterone, however, is a rather toxic drug and should be used by experienced athletes that have specific purposes in mind.

That being said its ability to increase strength while maintaining aggression without causing paranoia or anxiety is unparalleled. It can be used in a pulsatile manner i.e. 10-30mg 2 hours before high intensity work outs.

MethylTren is to Trenbolone what Trenbolone is to Primobolonan. Plainly put MethylTren (methyltrienolone or M3) is the most potent AAS in existence. This is both a blessing and curse. Its very hepatotoxic, with cases of acute hepatitis being reported as low as 2mg (which should be considered the absolute maximum dose this drug can be administered). Concordantly its ability increase strength, weight, agression and shed fat is simply put bewildering. Its mental side effects are similarly pronounced with anxiety, depression, agression, paranoia being almost certain at high doses.  

Given its profile the uses of MethylTren are limited simply because it can safely be substituted by Trenacet. People brave enough should proceed with caution always having specific goals preplanned and very limited duration of exposure - typically less than 4 weeks.
