Equipoise is the most commonly recognized trade name for boldenone undecylenate, an injectable veterinary steroid that exhibits strong anabolic and moderately androgenic properties The undecylenate ester extends the activity of the drug greatly the undecylenate ester is only one carbon atom longer than decanoate so that injections need to be repeated only 2 times per week The well–balanced anabolic and androgenic properties of this drug are greatly appreciated by athletes, who generally consider it to be a stronger anabolic than Deca–Durabolin. This is another injectable steroid that has made its way into the headlines lately because of its use by athletes for physique enhancement.
Since the undecylenate ester extends the activity of the drug greatly, injections must only be administered once every three or four weeks. This makes it a favorite among athletes who can tolerate it, especially those who compete in the off-season when more time for recovering is available. The drug is also popular because of its moderate androgenic properties that are only slightly higher than Deca-Durabolin. Since Equipoise does not aromatize (convert into estrogen), estrogen build-up is not a concern. As with all anabolic/androgenic steroids, Equipoise produces an anti-estrogenic effect by counteracting high blood levels of estrogen. This makes it a favorite among athletes who are fighting their own estrogen-related side effects from other anabolic steroids. This anti-estrogenic effect is also beneficial for burn victims and others who suffer from high blood estrogen levels.
Like many other popular veterinary anabolic steroids, Equipoise has exhibited a greater than average tendency for causing androgenic side effects in comparison to equivalent human doses. Although Equipoise is not an absolutely hair-promoting steroid, it is most definitely not a balding steroid either. The drug tends to promote a slightly higher incidence of body hair in those predisposed to developing this trait, but it is not nearly as pronounced as most other veterinary anabolics. There is also some risk of acne and oily skin.
While Equipoise is a good bulking drug, it also possesses the anabolic strength needed for size in a cutting cycle. Although it is not the best choice for this purpose it can still be used with some success. These cycles should still be accompanied by a non-aromatizing androgen like Masteron or Primobolan. In terms of lean gains, Equipoise stacks well with Anadrol or Dianabol. Because of its more moderate anabolic and androgenic properties, Equipoise is well suited for the off-season athlete who is concerned with possible estrogen-related side effects.
For physique– or performance–enhancing purposes, Equipoise is typically stacked with Deca–Durabolin, a non–aromatizing anabolic like Deca or Primobolan, and an oral with anti–estrogenic properties, like Nolvadex or Proviron. If a stronger bulking cycle is desired, Equipoise can be used with a stronger bulking drug like Dianabol or Anadrol without the need for an anti–estrogen. The recommended dosage range for performance–enhancing purposes is generally from 400–600 mg per week. For cutting purposes, the recommended range is generally from 400–500 mg per week. The undecylenate ester of the drug extends its activity greatly so that injections must only be administered once every three or four weeks. Although Equipoise can be used to good effect in all cycles, it is usually considered to be more appropriate for the off–season athlete or the harder gainer who doesn‘t do as well in human growth hormone, insulin, or anabolics. Cycle length is not a major factor when determining dosage, but longer cycles can be expected to exhibit better results. For physique or performance enhancement, cycles of 10–12 weeks are fairly common.
