Taking Primobolan and Testosterone together in what is called a “stack” is very common.
Many bodybuilders attempting to increase lean body mass and definition with more muscle strength and endurance will combine these steroids.
They are a great fit for one another
This is because performance level hits of Primobolan (chemical name Methenolone) will run the risk of testosterone suppression.
Cycling in some extra testosterone can help offset this side effect.
For the appearance of being “cut” with increases in athletic power, bodybuilders have turned to cutting stacks that make use of steroids like test and primobolan.
But while Primobolan is considered to be a mild steroid, it still carries significant risks for cardiovascular health and cholesterol levels.
This article will summarize the most up-to-date information about both each of these steroids and explore the combined benefits and possible side effect of stacking them together.
Primobolan & Testosterone Stack
“Stacking” or using the anabolic steroid Primobolan together with the anabolic steroid Testosterone has been shown to have a synergistic effect leading to a maximizing of muscle growth and fat loss.
A risk and benefits comparison of potential side effects versus possible benefits should be carefully done by anyone considering this potent combination.
Cycles and Dosages
Because use of steroids for bodybuilding is not sanctioned by lawmakers in most countries, there is little official data about the correct dosages for cycling primobolan and testosterone together.
If you look on bodybuilding forums and websites, you will discover different approaches to the question of dosage that you will need to weigh.
A typical stack of Primobolan and Testosterone that you might come across would involve a 10-week regimen with:
A dosage of Primobolan of 400 mg per week for cycle weeks 1-9
A dosage of 500 mg of Testosterone per week for cycle weeks 1-10
This would be followed by a 10 week off-cycle period before restarting.
Definition of Steroids
Steroids are organic compounds which naturally occur in the body. There are three main type of steroids: Glucocorticoids, Mineralocorticoids and Androgens.
Glucocorticoids such as cortisol have anti- inflammatory and immunosuppressive properties.
Mineral Corticoids such as Aldosterone help control water and electrolyte balance.
Androgens refers to steroids such as Testosterone which are synthesized in the testes and promote normal male characteristics such as facial hair and the enlargement of skeletal muscle cells.
When it comes to Anabolic Steroids, the term “anabolic” refers to the general class of steroids that build up organs and tissues by stimulating growth and thus increasing muscle mass.
Primobolan whose chemical name is Methenolone or Metenolone is an anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS) that is one of the most popular oral steroids.
This group of steroids includes testosterone and synthetic androgens which are structurally related to testosterone.
According to popular myth, Primobolan was the favorite steroid of famous body builder and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger who was featured in the movie “Pumping Iron.”
Primobolan is metabolized in the liver and excreted by the kidneys. In the United States Primobolan is a Schedule 3 Drug which means it has a currently accepted medical use and is available by prescription only.
Potential Side Effects of Primobolan
Primobolan is a less potent and thus somewhat safer steroid with fewer side effects.
It can cause acne and increases the production of Dihydrotestosterone which is a hormone that shrinks hair follicles which predisposes to male pattern baldness.
A potentially dangerous side effect of Primobolan is an increase in LDL (Bad) cholesterol levels and a decrease of HDL (good) cholesterol levels both of which are risk factors for hypertension, heart attacks, heart disease and strokes and even death.
It can also cause suppression of testosterone production and even atrophy of the testicles.
Testosterone which is the primary male sex hormone is an anabolic, androgenic steroid that plays a key role in the development of male reproductive organs such as the testis and prostate.
It is also responsible for stimulating secondary male sexual characteristics such as increased bone and muscle mass and growth of body hair.
Testosterone is used to treat male hypogonadism and certain types of breast cancer.
It increases lean muscle mass, decreases fat mass and can promote injury resistance. It also encourages rapid muscle repair and increases the ability to “bounce back” quickly from injuries and fatigue.
Side Effects of Testosterone
One of the most common side effects of Testosterone is Gynecomastia which is an abnormal enlargement of male breasts. This occurs because taking Testosterone increases the overall level of Testosterone causing a hormonal imbalance that causes the body to convert testosterone to the female hormone estrogen.
Another common side effect of Testosterone is severe water retention and edema also due to the increased levels of estrogen.
Also, toxic effects can include the development of hypertension which can lead to strokes, heart attacks and even blindness.
Testosterone can also cause acne and that shrinks hair follicles which predisposes and accelerates male pattern baldness.
Liver Toxicity is one of the most dangerous potential side effects of Testosterone.
This means that it is metabolized in the liver and so can cause liver toxicity, hepatitis, liver cancer and even liver failure.
Another very troublesome and potentially dangerous side effect is an increase in LDL (Bad) cholesterol levels and a decrease of HDL (good) cholesterol levels both of which are risk factors for hypertension, heart attacks, heart disease and strokes.
In addition, Testosterone use can lead to damage to the renal tubular cells within the kidneys that can eventually led to kidney failure. It can also accelerate the formation of kidney stones.
Psychological side effects of Testosterone can include bouts of aggression, paranoia, depression and what is often called “roid rage.”
Testosterone has also been found in studies to decrease sperm count, reduce sperm motility and cause various sperm abnormalities including infertility. It can also lead to ejaculation disorders (male orgasmic disorder), testicular atrophy, prostatitis, prostate cancer and sleep apnea.
It is contraindicated in anyone diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Primobolan and Testosterone can help to increase lean muscle mass, endurance and strength while decreasing body fat, fatigue and injuries.
When stacked together they act synergistically to maximize muscle growth and fat loss and muscular definition.
Care should be taken to be aware of the hazards and potentially life-threateningconsequences of the combination of and individual characteristics of both types of steroids.
To avoid the dangers of a Primobolan and Testosterone stack, we recommend trying a cutting stack made up of legal, safe steroid alternatives first.
