Testosterone is an anabolic steroid which can be used to improve bone density, muscle mass and body composition, libido and immune system.
Male testosterone cycles are a popular pick among first time anabolic steroid users.
This is probably because it is well-tolerate and extremely versatile.
It can either be used as a steroid in isolation or as a foundation of a cycle that combines multiple hormones.
Male Testosterone Cycles
Males cycling testosterone want to make building muscle and cutting fat more effective.
However, it is important to note that steroids do not burn the fat for you.
They do aid the process though, if you are playing your part.
Diet will play an important role in whether or not you lean out or bulk up. In combination with the proper nutrition, users can lose fat while protecting hard earned muscle mass.
Even if you are cutting, testosterone cycles help ensure muscle mass won’t be lost in the process.
Beginner Testosterone Cycle For Men
For those who are complete beginners to steroids, it is best to start simply and minimally.
Begin only with testosterone and do not combine with other hormones.
This is an important safety measure that will allow you to safely evaluate your reaction and any side effects.
Beginners and even those who are more experienced with taking testosterone opt for long ester types of testosterone. These long esters stay in your system for a longer span of time.
Esters regulate testosterone’s release, and do not alter the action in any way. Once the ester has worn out, the testosterone in your system remains the same.
Advanced users are satisfied with all the benefits that these types of testosterone provide.
Types of Long Ester Testosterones:
Testosterone Blends (Most commonly users choose Sustanon 250 and Omnadren)
Short Ester Testosterone Pros & Cons
There is some debate about whether or not long or short esters are better for beginner male testosterone cycles.
Long esters are well tolerated, however short esters provide some alternative benefits. These benefits include:
Shortened time in your system (This is beneficial to those who might experience a negative reaction)
Faster drug onset (Kicks in sooner)
Less estrogenic related side effects. This includes effects such as bloating and male pattern baldness.
Though, there are some drawbacks as well for these shorter esters. Since they do not stay in the system very long, injections become more frequent.
Users will need to inject every day or every other day. Users have reported that shorter esters are also more painful.
These negative side effects cause users, especially beginners, to often opt for the longer esters.
Beginner Dosing Instructions
Take 400 mg – 500 mg of Testosterone Cypionate or Testosterone Enanthate every week in equal doses.
This is divided into two separate 200 mg – 250 mg injections taken on different days.
Try to keep the same schedule of days each week.
Or, another one is to take 100 mg – 200 mg of Testosterone Propionate per week. This type is normally taken every other day or every two days, depending on the dosing. Ensure the dosages are equal each injection.
Ensure consistency in the testosterone cycling dosages. This will provide users with optimal results. The recommended time span for this beginner dosing is 12 – 16 weeks.
Intermediate & Advanced Male Testosterone Cycle
You may find yourself being very receptive to this initial dosing recommendation. If it is well tolerated for the first few weeks, you can opt to try the intermediate dosing cycle.
If you find that the intermediate dosing is too much, return back to the beginner dosing. Beginner dosages are still effective and will still provide good results. Users report noticeable results by week 4.
Intermediate & Advance Dosing Instructions
For those who are at a more advanced stage, the bodybuilding forums suggest:
Take 750 mg – 1000 mg of Testosterone Cypionate or Testosterone Enanthate every week. Break up into two separate 325 mg – 500 mg injections, taken on the same days each week.
Take up to 500 mg per week of Testosterone Propionate. Injections this high must be taken on an every day basis. Ensure that the dosages are separated equally. The recommended dosing span is 12 – 16 weeks.
Cycle Length & Duration
When it comes to performance enhancement and steroids, testosterone is the most recommended steroid for beginners to take, as the body is already accustomed to testosterone, which is naturally formed in the human body.
A typical user should take 400 to 500 mg of testosterone per week for at least 8 weeks to start. The cycle length for testosterone may vary for others, and intermediate users may wish to extend their cycle duration to an additional 4 weeks for a total of 12 weeks.
It is best to not get carried away during the beginning of your training regime, and take the time to see how your body reacts to the testosterone before deciding if you want to extend your testosterone cycles further.
In regards to how long it will take to notice results while on testosterone, the dose, length of use, individual genetics, diet, exercise regime, as well as whether or not the testosterone is stacked with other anabolics will determine how long it will take to notice marked improvements in performance.
The general rule of thumb is to be patient, recover as needed, and avoid over-stacking in order to determine what plan works best for you.
Intermediate and advanced users can also opt to stay at the beginner dosing for testosterone and stack their current regime with additional supplements and hormones.
Commonly stacked at this stage with testosterone is another anabolic steroid, such as Dianabol or Anadrol.
Stacking can help boost muscle mass and improve the physique. Depending on the nutritional intake, it can help you lean out as well. The dosing cycle complexes a bit and users may opt to take inhibitors in addition.
Post Cycle Therapy
Dosing should discontinue after the recommended cycling time span.
For the intermediate and advanced users who choose to take additional anabolic androgenic steroids for their cycle, they must discontinue the use of these too.
In completing a cycle, users must develop and begin a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan.
Since the male testosterone cycle suppressed your body’s natural testosterone cycle, the plan will help natural testosterone regulation to return to back its normal state.
