Equipoise or Deca?

Post by powerstud on Sat Jul 15, 2017 12:54 am

I've always had good results with the tried and true Deca, but have had opportunity to try Equipoise. I've heard and read it (Equipoise) is very similar to Nandrolone (Deca), but would like to get an idea if folks prefer one over the other.

Hey Bro,

I prefer EQ over Deca.For me when I stack with test, deca gets
me bloated and I suffer from a lot of sides.However, EQ and Deca
aren't very similar at all.

IMHO, the only similarities between the two is that they are both
more anabolic than androgenic and have a positive influence on
nitrogen retention, protein synthesis and protein re-synthesis; they
both also make good stacking partners for test because they are
more anabolic than androgenic. That's pretty much where the
similarities end, the end results from the two are different and
the pathways that they help to achieve gains are different as well.

Chemically, boldenone is a derivative of test while nandrolone is
a nortestosterone.Boldenone converts to dihydroboldenone and
nandrolone to dihydronandrolone.Probably the main difference
between the two is that for those who are stacking with test
and are concerned of androgenic side effects such as male pattern
baldness, prostate hypertrophy, and acne, nandrolone is the better
choice as it's converted form (dhn) is a much more mild hormone
when agonizing the androgen receptor.With eq and it's converted
form dhb you're looking at lighter sides that you would get with
test as well, however, being a lighter form of it's parent hormone
test, you'll be looking at facing the same androgenic sides albeit
a bit less.

EQ is more of a lean muscle builder.When stacked with test, you're
looking at more lean gains that are easier to maintain...qualitatively
speaking after pct.Since, EQ aromatizes at such a low rate, there isn't
a lot of estrogen floating around to cause water retention, however,
there is enough estrogen to mediate for greater anabolism and
protein synthesis.Aside from this, EQ causes a more rapid production
of red blood cells leading to better performance in terms of work
capacity not lung/cardio performance.Lastly, EQ stimulates appetite
so you can take in the needed protein for building. In the end, a test/eq
cycle will lead to some pretty good lean gains that aren't very hard
to maintain after PCT, and as well the need for compounds such as
HCG aren't entirely necessary except for perhaps the individual is
susceptible to being shut down very hard...though, I must say that
a tad bit of HCG on cycle never hurts to facilitate a faster recovery.

One of the activities of deca is that it stimulates the progesterone
receptor which in turn causes estrogenic activity in some tissue.
Even though the aromatisation rate to estrogen is nil at best, this
means that as it stimulates progestrone which in turn agonises
estrogen you get a lot of the estrogenic sides such as water retention
possibility of progesterone induced gyno ( formation of milk ducts) and
female fat distribution/gains.This isn't too say that it's a bad compound
at all, when the benefits such as lubed joints, the increase in size when
stacked with test, as well as the absence of androgenic sides are
gained from the compound. For cycles with deca you'll definitely need
HCG to get the testes back up and running or at least maintain their
function via a swales protocol because progestin activity will shut
them down hard.Some cabergoline doesn't hurt either to help maintain
your libido by controlling built up prolactin levels.In the end, the cycle
will give you much more impressive gains in mass than a test and eq
cycle, but you'll also have a lot of water and fat gain from the cycle with
some moderate losses in strength and sides after pct.

I'm off my rant...I hope this could be helpful and not too entirely boring.

Peace,
xixer
