Many bodybuilders use steroids to increase their muscle mass and to build a perfect body shape, during a steroid cycle the muscles have a fast growth, but at the end of the cycle a part of the muscles goes away. This consequence can not be stopped, but there is a way to reduce them and try to preserve a great part of your muscle mass. First we will talk about some processes that happen in the body system during the steroids cycle, this is about: hormone levels, recovery process is faster after the training sessions, nutrients are being faster processed by the body.
The main difference between the different types of testosterone is their half-lives and how long their use can be detected in the body. All the testosterones are pure testosterone attached to an ester. The smaller the ester the more water-soluble the compound, and the quicker it dissolves in the bloodstream and passes through the system. The use of any testosterone will have the same effects with respect to performance enhancement with differing time intervals. Since the attached esters have weight, the concentration of one compound may have more or less actual testosterone than another. Testosterone Suspension is 100% testosterone since there is no attached ester, so a 100mg/mL strength means 100mg of testosterone per 100mL. Testosterone Propionate is about 83% testosterone by weight, so a 100mg/mL strength has only 83mg of actual testosterone and 27mg of propionate ester per 100mL. This is why you may have noticed a fast acting testosterone having a greater effect than the same strength of a slower acting testosterone – you are getting more actual testosterone per mL of compound, even though it is the same strength.
