Testosterone cypionate is very similar to testosterone enanthan. Although the half-lives and the active state are different. Cypionate does not require frequent administration. Testosterone is the king of those who strive to gain weight without much financial expense. It is effective both in itself and in combination with other substances. The drug has a number of side effects: testosterone cypionate can be transformed into DHT (dihydrotestosterone) and form estrogens, causing gynecomastia. At the same time, the drug causes an increase in body weight. Because of the other side effect, water retention, the use of the drug will not allow you to recruit only quality muscle mass. However, all these shortcomings are a natural part of the sports course in terms of the set of volumes.

For men, the recommended dosage of Testosterone Cypionate is 250-500 mg (sometimes about 750 mg) of a steroid per week. The injection of athletes is usually 1 or 2 times a full week (too often, there is no need, because the steroid has a long activity – about 15-16 days). The courses last about 8 full weeks.
