Equipoise is a more popular word used in the bodybuilding circle but basically, it is just a brand name of Boldenone Undecylenate. We said bodybuilding/bodybuilders yes, but not just them. Professional athletes are keen on using it as well. It acts as a performance-enhancing drug that increases users’ muscle mass. The androgenic and estrogenic nature of the body is reduced due to being a derivative of testosterone.
Equipoise promotes muscle growth nicely but there are more benefits to it such as low estrogenic activity, cutting, strength, and muscle hardening. This is not a steroid that can be used during bulking cycles as a major component. It is not capable of adding 10-20lb like some bulking steroids. You won’t grow in the size but rather you will get a defined body. Protein synthesis is increased which makes your muscles stronger and bigger but only to some extent.
A cycle with this steroid is usually 12 weeks long and the doses can range from 200 mg to 600 mg a week, depending on whether you are a beginner or an advanced user.
If you are looking for a substance that will assist you in lean muscle mass and not muscle mass, then this is the steroid for you. During the cycle, all calories taken with food will be utilized, and won’t have time to add fat to your body. This will result in a loss of fat. If you use this steroid to lose weight, don’t worry as it will help you lose that weight while preserving your muscles.
One thing that bodybuilders avoid is estrogen. If testosterone converts into estrogen it will result in estrogenic side effects such as man boobs and bloated appearance. That is why equipoise has some slow but steady gains that reduce estrogenic activity. It is important to avoid those side effects as it will make you stop exercising and you will eventually lose your gains and be back at the beginning. But like with every anabolic steroid, there are some side effects such as acne, body hair growth in unwanted places, baldness, increase in bad cholesterol, and suppression of testosterone.
