Equipoise is a steroid compound that can give users slow but steady
gains during a cycle.It is also relatively safe with very few
reports of the side effects caused by testosterone conversion into
estrogen. For bodybuilders, it should be used with some
testosterone as Equipoise can cause sexual dysfunction.
Equipoiseâ€™s long-lasting ester means it should be used for a
minimum 12-week cycle.
Equipoise is the popular brand name for the veterinary injectable
steroid boldenone undecylenate. It is a derivative of testosterone,
which exhibits strong anabolic and moderately androgenic
properties. The undecylenate ester greatly extends the activity of
the drug (the undecylenate ester is only one carbon atom longer
than decanoate), so that clinically injections would need to be
repeated every three or four weeks.
Effectiveness of Equipoise
This is not intended to disparage the compound: it certainly can be
put to good use in a steroid cycle. Its potency (effect per
milligram) is comparable to most other injectable steroids, though
less than that of trenbolone, and so for example addition of 400
mg/week is a substantial boost to most cycles. Alternately, if
substituting boldenone for another injectable this can be done on a
Half-Life of Equipoise
A serious drawback of Equipoise is its long half-life, which is
probably at least 12 days.
This results in an extended period of time after the last injection
during which levels are neither sufficiently high for optimal
anabolism, nor low enough to allow recovery to occur.
A solution for this problem is to use Equipoise in only the earlier
part of a cycle.
Equipoise Side Effects
Boldenone is metabolized by aromatase to estradiol, but to a lesser
a degree than testosterone. It also is metabolized by the 5-AR
enzyme, in this case to 17b-hydroxyandrost-1-ene-3-one, commonly
but incorrectly called “1-testosterone” and sometimes called
dihydroboldenone. This molecule’s potency is similar to that of
boldenone, so the molecule is neither potentiated or deactivated by
the 5-AR enzyme and therefore that metabolism is unimportant.
