Testosterone Propionate is one of many variations of esterified testosterone, which is now available on the market. It's an injection compound with a slower pace of release than testosterone itself without testosterone ester, but with a faster release than any other commercially available testosterone esters.
Non-esterified testosterone (testosterone ester-free) has a very short half-life, so that its use is very inconvenient and impractical. Propionate ester extends half-life of testosterone to 4.5 days. Testosterone itself is considered to be the most natural and safest anabolic steroid. It is the most versatile and flexible as to its intended use in cures designed for definition as well as bulking period.
Testosterone is the building block of all anabolic steroids and it is a naturally produced hormone by the body. It is secreted by the testes and is responsible for the development or maintenance of a balanced primary and secondary sex characteristics in men - deepening of the voice, the rapid growth of the hair (especially on the face, legs and pubis), and it's also responsible for the production of sperm for sexual reproduction.
Most of anabolic androgenic steroid are derived from this hormone and, therefore, are used for improving the performance and produce significant gains in strength and muscle mass.
The use of testosterone is associated with dramatic and almost permanent increments with respect to the muscle, the muscle mass and size, strength, aggression, endurance and the ability to handle intensive training. This hormone is vital for bone density, volume and muscle strength, sexual desire, body fat distribution, production of red blood cells and sperm production. Testosterone also acts as prevention of osteoporosis, and is important for physical health and wellbeing. Moreover, the hormone is useful to stimulate linear growth and bone maturation. Regulates cognitive and physical energy and the maintenance of muscle cells. Testosterone also has the ability to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Testosterone is considered to be literally an anabolic steroid that is produced naturally in all humans and in most animal species. For this reasons testosterone is considered the safest anabolic steroid. The body of each individual is already accustomed to the effects of testosterone.
Adverse effects of the abuse of testosterone propionate are significantly lower and less frequent than with testosterone depot forms. In case of long-term use, or abuse of higher doses nevertheless there is a risk of massive acne, hair loss, increased body hair and deepening of the voice. The risk of gynecomastia, despite mild aromatizing, is reportedly minimal as well as its toxic effects on the liver. When using this product, no significant water retention was reported, many users in cycles aimed at building quality muscle mass. Also, aromatization and other side effects are less likely to manifest itself so clearly as when testosterone with long esters. Even starting the creation of own endogenous TST is faster than and not as demanding as the long esters. The great disadvantage of this testosterone is that it is necessary to apply often to achieve a stable level of testosterone in the blood. This is probably the main reason why it's avoided by beginners. Many users often also complain of developing a mild fever and pain at the injection site on the second day after application.
Beginners are recommended a dose of testosterone propionate in the range of 300-500 mg per week (75-125 mg every other day), and in particular to the first course of anabolic steroids. Even at the lowest dose range it provides a dramatic improvement in figure and strength for beginners, provided that nutrition and preparation are strict and properly. Intermediate users dosed testosterone propionate in the range of 500-700 mg per week (125-175 mg every other day).Advanced users’ use a number in the range 700 - 1000 mg per week (corresponding to 175-250 mg every other day).The detection of this substance according to available information is about 30 days. Some sources list 120 days advent of new technology testing of athletes.
