Primobolan Depot represents one of the more popular anabolic steroids in performance enhancing circles, especially bodybuilding due to the Arnold Schwarzenegger stigma that surrounds it. This is an injectable steroid is said to be relatively mild and can be used safely by both men and women.
The steroid was first introduced in the 1960s in both oral and injectable form and has been used successfully in the medical field to treat muscle wasting diseases, osteoporosis, some forms of cancer and hepatitis.
Primobolan is not what people consider a strong mass promoting steroid; however, it’s widely known by all as a premier cutting steroid. We mentioned that the steroid was created in both oral and injectable form but you won’t find many, if any steroid users who purchase the oral form. Primobolan Depot is said to be far more effective than the oral form. In fact, experienced steroid users know this steroid is limited in oral form and is one of the more commonly counterfeited anabolic steroids out there. For that reason, we are only going to focus on Primobolan Depot (the injectable version).
Something interesting that many people may not know about Primobolan Depot is that this steroid enhances the immune system which is extremely beneficial to everyday steroid users. This is important when considering running a cutting cycle. During a cutting cycle when calories are restricted and the body becomes weak and fatigued from intense training, the immune system can be compromised. Supplementing with Primobolan can strengthen the immune system and help fight off infections and even the nagging common cold.
One last piece of information before we talk about cycling with Primobolan Depot is that this steroid can be very beneficial for females during the off-season. It is said that women are more sensitive to steroids. While Primobolan Depot may not provide the best results for men during a bulking phase, women may be able to pack on some off-season muscle mass due to the metabolic enhancement and fat burning properties of the steroid.
You won’t find many people who use Primobolan Depot in a solo cycle. Those who insist on running this steroid by itself will need to do so at higher doses than when stacked with other compounds. In order to see a desirable outcome, a Primobolan Depot solo cycle typically lasts twelve weeks. We have outlined the cycle below:
|1||750mg per week|
|2||750mg per week|
|3||750mg per week|
|4||750mg per week|
|5||750-1,000mg per week|
|6||750-1,000mg per week|
|7||750-1,000mg per week|
|8||750-1,000mg per week|
|9||750-1,000mg per week|
|10||750-1,000mg per week|
|11||750-1,000mg per week|
|12||750-1,000mg per week|
It can be very beneficial to add a low dose of Testosterone to a solo cycle of Primobolan Depot. As you become more experienced with steroids and steroid stacks, you will also become more knowledgeable of how important it is to use Testosterone as a base to any cycle. Remember to divide the doses equally and inject every Monday and Thursday. Ten-week cycle below:
|Week||Testosterone Enanthate||Primobolan Depot|
|1||300-500mg per week||400mg per week|
|2||300-500mg per week||400mg per week|
|3||300-500mg per week||400mg per week|
|4||300-500mg per week||400mg per week|
|5||300-500mg per week||400mg per week|
|6||300-500mg per week||400mg per week|
|7||300-500mg per week||400mg per week|
|8||300-500mg per week||400mg per week|
|9||300-500mg per week||400mg per week|
|10||300-500mg per week||400mg per week|
Primobolan has been shown to have a very effective rate of binding with the androgen receptor.
This close attachment increases the rate of fat breakdown meaning that Primobolan works efficiently to drop the fat. With a lower fat percentage, the muscles are clearly defined and vascularization is improved. Remember that Primobolan is considered a rather weak steroid when cycled on its own so don’t expect to look stage-ready at the end of your cycle.
Individuals may notice that muscle mass is not lost with the use of Primobolan Depot. This steroid helps to maintain the muscle mass gained during heavy weight training. Depending on the dosage taken during your solo cycle, you may feel a boost in energy (this will only occur if eating clean, training consistently and making sure you allow the body time to rest).
Unless you are only looking for small muscle increases, Primobolan Depot shouldn’t be taken in a solo cycle. Females may consider running a cycle of Primobolan on its own since it may work better in promoting a small amount of muscle/size to the body.
By using Primobolan you can shed fat, retain muscle, increase athletic ability and look clean and defined. Results will vary from person to person. Don’t forget to factor in your age, body type, level of training, length of cycle, dose of Primobolan taken and whether you added testosterone as the base to your cycle. We still consider this a solo cycle (by the way).
POST CYCLE THERAPY
Post Cycle Therapy or PCT is an essential process that people go through once they’ve finished a cycle of steroids. The objective is to get their body back to its normal state so it can start naturally producing hormones again. Once a run of steroids is over, a user will start their post-cycle therapy.
PCT is essential to prevent long-term impairment of testosterone production in the body. Without PCT, testosterone levels may never return to normal and replacement therapy may be required permanently.
Some may start PCT as early as two or three days after the last pill or injection is taken. Start times are not set in stone and will vary from person to person depending on the length of the cycle and what steroids were taken at what dosages. Obviously, with a longer cycle, you’ll need a longer recovery period of PCT. Common PCT cycles after using Primobolan last between three to four weeks with the use of Clomid or Nolvadex.
Clomid can be taken at 50mg per day for the first two weeks followed by 25mg per day for weeks three and four. If Nolvadex is your drug of choice, take 20mg per day for the first two weeks followed by 10mg per day weeks three and four.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM PCT
Don’t expect to hit the gym as viciously when you are off your steroid cycle and running post cycle therapy. Gains will not be lost when you come off the cycle. Individuals may feel tired or not so pumped up to workout but that is only natural. Keeping a positive mindset when running post cycle therapy is essential. Remember, this is the time your body needs to regroup and recharge for the next steroid cycle. Time off allows both your body and mind to strategically create your next cycle, plan it out and crush your goals towards the body you work hard for.
You’ve probably gathered from reading the information we provided that Primobolan comes in two forms: oral and injectable, although finding the real oral form is nearly impossible. This makes Primobolan Depot (injectable) commonly used. The steroid is one of the safest to cycle with and can be well-tolerated by men and women.
Don’t expect to talk to a lot of people at the gym or online who use this steroid alone. Chances are, they’ll say it’s a waste of time and money. For those who still want to run Primobolan Depot by itself, consider the cycle we provided that incorporates testosterone as the base. You won’t find many people who don’t add testosterone to any cycle they create. Listen to your body, and pay attention to any side effects you may experience from Primobolan and/or any other steroid. Most importantly, before jumping on any steroid cycle train, write down your goals, and get serious about eating and training. What’s the point of considering a steroid cycle without being motivated enough to do your part?
