Equipoise, a form of Boldenone ester, is an anabolic steroid develop base on testosterone and is a derivative of testosterone. Based on testosterone, Boldenone has enhanced anabolic activity and low androgen activity, so its use will bring less androgen side effects while building muscle. Boldenone is a synthetic AAS that is also a naturally occurring hormone found in plants such as turmeric and witch hazel.
Synthetic Boldenone, which link together with different esters, gives it different half-lives and thus has poor release time. There are three common forms of Boldenone acetate, Boldenone cypionate and Boldenone undecylenate (Equipoise), which have half-lives of 3 days respectively. 12 and 15 days. Different half-life lengths enable bodybuilder to select corresponding Boldenone ester according to its own cycle length, so that Boldenone can better plan its bodybuilding cycle. No matter which ester form bodybuilder chooses, the final active ingredient is Boldenone.
Some say Boldenone synthesize to create a long-acting injectable version of Dianabol. Dianabol has a large public base as the most popular anabolic steroid, but it is available in oral form. Bodybuilder tends to view injected anabolic steroids as having higher availability and better results, so the demand for Dianabol injections is very strong. Equipoise is said to play a very similar role to Dianabol, with lower androgen effects.
In addition to the above points, Dianabol has a half-life of only 3-6 hours and Equipoise has a longer half-life, reducing the frequency of drug use. Furthermore, Equipoise injection avoids the hepatotoxic side effects of Dianabol.
Equipoise, a derivative of testosterone, will still be aromatized, but with a lower probability of being aromatized than testosterone, about 50%. There is some water retention when using Equipoise in bodybuilding, but it is much lower than Deca and dianabol, Equipoise is suitable for long-term steady growth of muscle mass and strength, and is therefore suitable for non-racing days. The muscle growth with Equipoise is thinner and more pumping, with increased vascular distribution.
Because Equipoise can increase appetite, it is not suitable for cutting, but it does not mean that Boldenone has no role in cutting. The anabolic effects of Equipoise can effectively reduce fat and retain muscle mass during the cutting phase.
