Sustanon is a multi-estered testosterone compound. The four active agents in this product are: Testosterone Isocaproate, Testosterone Propionate, Testosterone Phenylpropionate and Testosterone Decanoate.
Testosterone is the main hormone for achieving the best results in sports. Any proper steroid cycle should be based on the male hormone. The well-known manufacturer, Dragon Pharma, realizes this and has produced a specific combined drug called Sustanon 350.
It is a mix of testosterone ethers with different effects of duration (half-lives). It contains both fast and long esters so they keep the hormonal balance on one level without peaks or drops, but this balance is only maintained when two administrations are done weekly. This allows the user to gain muscle mass quickly and efficiently.
• Quick growth of muscle mass;
• Increased strength and endurance;
• Protection of the joints and ligaments;
• Slight water retention, the excess fluid is removed after the cycle and makes the muscles more defined;
• No side effects if applied properly;
• It can be combined well with other steroids;
• Fast and long effects due to the estered mix;
• Convenient due to the option of non-frequent injections.
A recommended dosage of Sustanon 350 is 350-750mg per week, dependant on the individual’s experience levels. We recommend that beginners start with the lower dosage of 350mg per week, as being the higher dosed version, this will be more than sufficient. If beginner bodybuilders should want to increase their dosage after a few weeks, we do not recommend exceeding 500mg per week. The mix of testosterone esters with different half-lives, allows the user to perform 1 or 2 injection per week, this is based on personal preference for the administration process.
The cycle duration is 6-10 weeks. After the cycle many bodybuilders are able to gain 10kg of muscle mass. Sometimes they may gain less but this will likely mean that there were some problems with nutrition, rest, and exercise. The muscle mass rollback after the cycle can be on the high side due to the aromatisation of testosterone, but this can be reduces with anti-estrogenic drugs used within the cycle. Another great property of this drug is its anti-catabolic effects which stop the muscles being used as a source of fuel.
It is not recommended to take a solo Sustanon 350 cycle as when combined with other steroids the risk of side effects is much lower and muscle mass is gained faster, but this is for the more experienced athletes who already have cycled with solo testosterone before.
Ordinarily Dianabol or Stanozolol (Winstrol) are suitably combined in a cycle with Sustanon 350. Some athletes administer Turinabol. For sure, it’s a good combination, but rather expensive. When speaking about anabolic steroids, Oxymetholone or ordinary Deca can be used. The longer ester Nandrolone Decanoate is the most preferable of the two for mass bulking cycles.
A combination with Deca is a so-called bodybuilding classic. The high anabolic index of Nandrolone and high androgenic index of testosterone perfectly complement each other minimizing the risk of side effects while gaining large amounts of mass within the cycle.
Sustanon is not typically used for drying, but with other cutting agents such as Trenbolone, Masteron and Winstrol this cutting cycle will give you great results. If it is your first cycle, Sustanon 350 can be used with Oxandrolone. But the latter (oral) should be taken in large doses (50-60mg a day) and also it is rather expensive. Dianabol is more affordable, but will be stronger for the beginner athletes.
Sustanon 350 has the same side effects as all testosterone substances:
• Gynecomastia (in the case of a predisposition) this can be treated with anti-oestrogens (Anastrozole) during the cycle;
• Inhibited testosterone production (recovered after the cycle);
• Decreased libido if used for long durations in big doses;
• Increased hairiness on the body and other areas.
From a chemical point of view this drug is testosterone, i.e. expressed androgen. In the case that there is excess of it in the body, aromatization may begin as testosterone is transformed into female hormones. This causes several side effects including feminization. So that’s why we advise following the above-mentioned recommendations. In this case the adverse effects will not occur.
For preventing side effects, use all necessary drugs for the post-cycle therapy including Clomid and Tamoxifen.
Water retention is not a severe side effect and it is reduced with completion of the post-cycle therapy. At this point, water is removed and makes the muscles more defined. Of course, some weight will be lost, but this will improve the overall appearance of the athlete.
According to feedback about Sustanon 350, positive dynamics can be found. A proper post-cycle therapy allows minimizing the rollback and keeping the muscle mass. Post-cycle therapy begins after 10-14 days after the final injection as the half-life of long esters allows for the long elimination of hormones out of the blood.
Post-cycle therapy should include Clomid or Nolvadex. For the first 2 weeks 50mg of Clomid or 40mg of Tamoxifen should be taken, after this the dosage should be reduced to 25mg of Clomid or 20mg of Tamoxifen for the final 1-2 weeks.
However, do not take Tamoxifen, if you have combined Sustanon 350 with Nandrolone, as for this, Tamoxifen will need to be replaced with Cabergoline to counteract the progestin properties that Nandrolone provides during the course.
If during the cycle you feel that your nipples have swollen and a definitive itching has occurred, treat this feminization with Cabergoline within the cycle at 0.5mg every 4-5 days until these negative effects have disappeared.
