Testoxyl Cypionate 250 made by Kalpa Pharmaceuticals
Testoxyl Cypionate is a form of testosterone brought to the market by Kalpa Pharmaceuticals more than a decade ago. It contains 250 mg/ml of testosterone cypionate which is preferred over the Enanthate ester by strength sports fans and bodybuilders in North America.
Testosterone cypionate in comparison with the enanthate ester.
Long testosterone esters act on the body for two to three weeks, which allows for injections to be made once or twice a week during the course. This is a significant advantage over the shorter esters that require daily or every other day injections.
There are no significant differences in the effect of these forms of testosterone on the body, either in positive manifestations or in negative side effects. A characteristic feature is a tendency to aromatization, which manifests itself, to a greater extent, in the inevitability of fluid retention.
As a result, at the end of the course, part of the gained muscle mass goes away, though not as much as after a Dianabol-only cycle. The minimal difference in duration of action can hardly be considered a strong enough argument in favor of one of these forms of testosterone, in terms of it having any significant benefits over the other ester.
Testoxyl Cypionate General Information.
Most of the bodybuilders and weight lifting athletes who take this hormone, do it for the boost it can give to increasing muscle mass. However, these are not the only beneficial results that are achieved as a result of running a Testoxyl Cypionate cycle.
In their reviews, athletes usually point to such positive effects as:<>
- Increased Strength;
- increased endurance, which reduces the risk of overtraining and muscle fatigue;
- recovery after workouts is much faster.
Water retention is a downside with most of the steroid cycles, and it can also be the case of using Testoxyl Cypionate 250 to some extent. But a properly built cycle plan allows you to reduce the retention of liquid, and also keep at an acceptable level the loss of muscles caused by the influence of the so-called rollback phenomenon.
Additional positive effects of Testosterone Cypionate include the decreased risk of joint injuries, helping reduce the back pain as well as crunching sound in the shoulders. However, of course, Nandrolone Decanoate is known to be more effective in this matter.
Use and cycles.
The duration of the Testoxyl Enanthate cycle of 10 to 12 weeks is considered an optimal duration. The results are directly dependent on the dosage level, however, most athletes prefer to limit it to 250-500 mg of the testosterone cypionate per week. More experienced Bodybuilders may exceed this dosage.
However, increasing the dosage is not always the best option since it will yield results at a lower rate but will inevitably lead to an increased risk of side effects. The best approach is to find the balance between the desired results and the acceptable risk of developing some adverse effects. A moderate dosage of 400 to 500 mg per week will provide good enough results for most users.
It is recommended to add Human Chorionic Gonadotropin on the third week of the cycle. This will ultimately help recover the natural testosterone production faster during post-cycle therapy.
It is worth taking aromatase inhibitors like Arimidex or Aromasin from the third week of the course or once estrogen-related side effects are noticed. A dosage of 0.25 to 1 mg of Anastrozole daily should be enough. Although many bodybuilders prefer to use Proviron while taking moderate dosages of testosterone. The use of aromatase inhibitors is stopped a week after the end of the course.
When the action of Testoxyl Cypionate drops, which normally happens 2 weeks after the end of the cycle, you can start the post-cycle therapy. Taking Nolvadex or Clomid for 3 to 4 weeks will help restore natural testosterone production and reduce estrogen levels.
A proper PCT will help the athlete to keep most of the muscle mass gained during the cyce. As for the use of cortisol blockers, no reliable information can be found about any impressive effectiveness of the action of any of them.
Including Testoxyl Cypionate, as part of the combined course, it is possible to achieve various goals. To gain a good amount of muscle mass, use this steroid in a stack with: Nandrolone Decanoate - this combination, with a weekly dosage of 400 mg of Deca and 500 mg of Test, can be considered a classic bulking stack.
An even greater effect can be achieved using a more powerful steroid with progestin activity like Trenbolone Enanthate. However, this stack is only recommended to experienced users as along with the potency of the trenbolone hormones comes the increased risk and more problematic side effects.
Methandrostenolone (Dianabol) can be added to the cycle during the first 4 weeks as a kick-start since the testosterone normally kicks in on the third week. Anadrol is another oral steroid that Testoxyl Cypionate can be stacked with. Taking a liver-protection drug during such a cycle is recommended since Oxymetholone is very harsh on the liver.
Side effects of Testoxyl Cypionate
The side effects of testosterone hormones do not change depending on the ester and the list is pretty much the same as that related to enanthate and propionate. Therefore, it is necessary to take into account all possible negative effects and take preventive measures during the course.
A recommended approach is to keep the dosage and cycle duration within a reasonable range as well as have a proper diet, training, and rest routine which should help with some of the side effects. Of course, running a proper On Cycle and Post cycle therapy is a must.
Some of the negative effects caused by this hormone are gynecomastia (hardening and swelling of the nipples and breast) injection site pain and swelling, test flu, mood swings including aggression, water retention, change in libido, oily skin, acne, irregular menstrual cycles in women, deepening of the voice.
