Primobolan is an enanthate esterified injectable steroid which shows mild anabolic and low androgenic properties. The enanthate ester creates a situation in which concentrations of the steroid rises and stays elevated for roughly two weeks. Primobolan is the injectable version of methenolone, the same compound available in oral form created by Schering. The injectable version is much more popular, being much more cost effective to males bodybuilders whom require a relatively high dose.
Primobolan is commonly used by those who wish to keep oestrogen and androgenic related side effects to a minimum. Primobolan is also a popular choice for cutting cycles due its mild anabolic properties which may be best suited for sustaining muscle tissue under strict pre-content dieting. Excessive subcutaneous fluids will also not be a concern due to primobolan being a non-aromatising steroid. The compound could also be added to bulking cycles to heighten the anabolic nature of the cycle whilst minimising adding to the overall oestrogen and androgenic side effects.
Androgenic related side effects are usually only confined to the sensitive individuals, or those who opt
to take the larger dosages of the product. Primobolan is often regarded as a safe steroid in comparison
to other products, and it is a very sought after product which reflects in its cost.
A dose of 400mg a week has been shown to provide decent gains, but higher doses are common, with many claiming 600-800mg a week will provide a much better yield in muscle size whilst not causing too much in terms of side effects. As we rise the dose we can expect the androgenic side effects to become more pronounced, so its down to the user to see what dose provides fruitful when weighing up the side effects to net positive gains.
Primobolan is often stacked with other steroids to provide more pleasing results to the user. During a cutting cycle the product could be stacked with a non-aromatising androgen to aid muscle hardness whilst keeping a very defined look with little water retention. Others may find primobolan a nice compound to add to their usual testosterone course to add to the anabolic nature of the cycle, whilst not adding too much to side effects. This may be useful for those who have found their tolerance dosage with testosterone but wish to add another compound to their stack to aid gains.
Due to the high demand and cost of the drug there are many fakes of primobolan around. Pharmaceutical grade primobolan is heavily faked, but if you can get legit Schering primobolan it will be the best for your money. Otherwise, use a trusted UG product with good reports.
