Testosterone Cypionate, when this long-acting version of testosterone is injected, it becomes stored in what is known as a depot in the body, and slowly released over a short period of time. Peaking within 1-2 days after injection, the testosterone is then steadily released over the next 12 days and completely tapers out after approximately 3 weeks.
As with all testosterone products it has a strong anabolic activity, with a pronounced androgenic component. Thus it can provide significant gains in strength and muscle mass, as well a noticeable increase in libido. An added benefit, with all testosterone products is the relief of tendon pain, faster recuperation and an increase in the level and duration of physical output due to the oxygen rich blood along with an increase of red blood cells.
Testosterone Cypionate is identical with regards to results to any long acting testosterone.
The prime advantage of this product is the fact that it can be injected once per week and it gives some very good gains in strength and size. I would bet that many careers in bodybuilding and athletics were built with the long term use of this drug.
Doses of 250-2,000 mg per week, the best gains versus side effects are probably had somewhere below the 750 mg/week mark. Of course this is far below what many competitors in the upper ranks of bodybuilding use, but for the average (recreational) bodybuilder or athlete, the side effects above this dose do not constitute an acceptable trade off for the gains.
