Test P - Testosterone Propionate
Testosterone Propionate is an excellent anabolic steroid. It is highly versatile, tremendously beneficial, well-tolerated by most all adult men and affordable. While tremendously beneficial, there is no advantage in using Testosterone Propionate over other testosterone forms in terms of specific benefits. This testosterone compound is no more or less side effect friendly than any testosterone form. However, some will find it is a little easier to maintain stable and peaked blood levels with this form when the injection frequency is on an every other day basis. This can be an advantage for some but you truly can obtain the same results with Testosterone Propionate as all testosterone forms.

About Test P
Testosterone Propionate is a single ester testosterone compound and represents one of the most important testosterone compounds ever manufactured. It has also been the first commercially available testosterone product.
Testosterone Propionate is a pure testosterone hormone. Although synthetic, it is a perfect replica of the primary, naturally produced male androgen testosterone. By design, the hormone is attached to the Propionate (propionic acid) ester, a small / short ester that enables the hormone’s release time to be controlled. Without an ester, the hormone would disperse and dissipate rapidly post administration.
The added propionate ester will slow the rate in which testosterone is released from the injection site, but only for a few days. Testosterone Propionate is, therefore, comparatively much faster-acting than other testosterone esters such as Testosterone Cypionate or Testosterone Enanthate, and requires a much more frequent dosing schedule.
Test P effects
For the low testosterone patient, if you supplement with Testosterone Propionate, you will suffer no more. This is the primary effect of testosterone in this regard.
For the off-season individual, there are very few anabolic steroids that can promote lean tissue growth like Testosterone Propionate. The individual will be able to grow in size at a significant rate and with less body fat accumulation that would otherwise occur. However, you must still eat (to receive enough calories) and train (to burn enough calories).
In order to lose body fat, you must burn more calories than you consume. If you’re consuming more than you burn, you will not lose any fat. Due to the necessary caloric restriction, this can put your lean muscle mass at risk. The body will take what it needs to meet its energy demands from anywhere it can get it and this can include muscle tissue. By supplementing with Testosterone Propionate, the pronounced enhancement of anabolic action will protect this lean tissue and ensure you only burn body fat.
Finally, the effects of Testosterone Propionate result in greater muscular endurance. You will do more work, won’t tire out as fast yet recover faster. This also includes the recovery of tore down muscle tissue (after training). Endurance and recovery are two of the key elements to successful athletic performance. As an added bonus, high testosterone levels will increase the individual’s strength. This is obviously an advantage to an athlete and is very welcomed in an off-season cycle designed for physique enhancement.
By most accounts, Testosterone Propionate is an older and cruder form of injectable testosterone, made obsolete by the slower-acting and more comfortable esters that were developed subsequent to it. Still, those who are not bothered by the frequent injection schedule find Testosterone Propionate acceptable. As an injectable testosterone, it is a powerful mass-building drug, capable of producing rapid gains in both muscle size and strength.
Test P administration
The usual dosage among male athletes is in the range of 50 - 100mg per injection, which is given every second or third day. Similar to other esters of testosterone, Testosterone Propionate is commonly used at a weekly cumulative dosage between 200mg to 400mg. This level is sufficient for most users to notice exceptional gains in muscle size and strength.
For performance enhancing athletes, 25 - 50mg every other day is generally a solid dose of Testosterone Propionate to combat suppression caused by the use of other anabolic steroids.
For a true anabolic benefit, doses will normally fall in the 100mg every other day range. This is a very safe dose, easy to control and should be well-tolerated by most adult men. Higher doses can be used, most men can tolerate 150mg every other day very well. Many men will be able to tolerate 200mg every other day with relative ease. However, always keep in mind that the higher the dose the greater the probability of adverse effects. Higher doses will require more caution and effort in controlling side effects but it is more than possible to control them.
Regardless of your purpose of use, Testosterone Propionate works well with all anabolic steroids. Off-season bulking plans will often include compounds like Nandrolone Decanoate. During the cutting phase, Testosterone Propionate works well with Oxandrolone, Drostanolone, Methenolone, Trenbolone and Stanozolol.
Test P side effects
Testosterone is readily aromatized in the body to estradiol (estrogen). The aromatase (estrogen synthetase) enzyme is responsible for this metabolism of testosterone. Elevated estrogen levels can cause side effects such as increased water retention, body fat gain, and gynecomastia.
Elevated levels of testosterone are likely to produce androgenic side effects including oily skin, acne, and body and facial hair growth. Men with a genetic predisposition for hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) may notice accelerated male pattern balding.
Testosterone Propionate is often regarded as a painful injection. This is due to the very short carbon chain of the propionic acid ester, which can be irritating to tissues at the site of injection. Many sensitive individuals choose to stay away from this steroid completely, their bodies reacting with a pronounced soreness and low-grade fever that may last for a few days after each injection.
Testosterone Propionate can have a negative impact on cholesterol, particularly HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) in suppressing total HDL levels. A therapeutic dose should not support a strong statistical decrease, however, the same dose could promote HDL suppression when conjoined with an AI. With a supraphysiological dose, total HDL suppression by as much as 20% is very possible. If conjoined with an AI it will more than likely be exasperated.
Regardless of who you are or why you’re using it, the side effects of Testosterone Propionate will always include the suppression of natural testosterone production. For the low level patient this is of no concern. Such an individual is not producing enough testosterone to begin with. For the performance athlete, during use this is also no concern as the exogenous testosterone will provide your body all it needs. Once use is discontinued, natural testosterone production will begin again. This, however, does not apply to the low testosterone patient. A low level patient will more than likely always need exogenous testosterone therapy.
Testosterone Propionate is not hepatotoxic. This anabolic steroid will present no stress or damage to the liver.
