IsoCaproate (testosterone isocaproate) Profile
Along with Anadur, Deca-Durabolin, and
Durabolin, this is an-other steroid containing the substance
nandrolone. Testosterone IsoCaproate is a favorite among athletes
since it brings good results with few side effects. Although it is
often compared to "Deca", its effect is mg per mg comparable or
slightly less. The reason is that Testosterone IsoCaproate is
slightly androgenic with an anabolic effect, thus it strongly
promotes the protein synthesis. The increased androgenic com-ponent
helps the athlete achieve a good strength increase and an
accelerated regeneration. Those who have had good results with Deca
will usually respond even better to TestosteroneIso Caproate.
Athletes re-port a distinct, quickly effective, solid gain in
muscles, which goes hand in hand with a significant gain in
strength. The increase in body weight and the improved strength are
the result of the water retention in tissues and joints.
Testosterone IsoCaproate does not strongly aromatize in dosages
below 4 ml/week. Testosterone IsoCaproate is effective for 1-2
weeks, thus requiring more frequent injections than Deca.
Bodybuilders who work with this compound usually inject it twice a
week. The minimum dosage is 2ml/week. A weekly dosage of 4 ml (equal
to 322 mg) is usually sufficient for most athletes to achieve
satisfactory results. This requires the injection of 2 ml (equal to
161 mg or 2 ampules) twice weekly. Higher dosages would certainly
bring even better gains but often go hand in hand with distinct
water retention. Such dosages also aromatize so strongly that
antiestrogens must be taken to maintain the quality of the muscles.
Women do well with 1 ml/week and rarely show virilization symptoms
if the compound is not taken for more than six weeks. Female
athletes rarely use Testosterone IsoCaproate since they normally
prefer Durabolin, which has a shorter duration of effectiveness.
The blackmarket price is between $15 and $20 on the black market.
The red label on the ampule is branded into the glass and can be
felt. It cannot be removed by fingernail or be scratched off.
