Primobolan and Primobolan Depot Cycles for Lean Muscle Gains, Plus Primo Cycle Myths
Dear Friend and Fellow Athlete,
PRIMOBOLAN (Methenolone Enanthate)
If ever there was a steroid that can be considered “perfect”
(or as perfect as can be), it would be Primobolan. It’s considered to be
the safest and least suppressive anabolic steroid, has few side effects
and is extremely effective. So why isn’t Primobolan used by everybody?
The reasons may lie in many of the misconceptions surrounding this
Primobolan does not give fast gains, or more accurately, does not cause a quick increase in water retention, therefore it’s considered “weak”, yet in terms of building solid muscle, it’s one of the most effective steroids available.
All steroids are based on the testosterone molecule and all steroids provide two functions – one, of mimicking androgenic effects within the body. (Basically all “male” attributes – strength, aggression, the ability to grow muscle, etc). And there’s also the “anabolic” effect, in that they recirculate nitrogen (protein) therefore utilizing more of the necessary building blocks needed for tissue growth and repair. Unless sufficient amino acids are present muscle growth will be sub par and in the case of Primobolan this is of utmost significance. You MUST train hard and you MUST eat a lot of protein. THAT, is when you’ll see what Primobolan can do.
The concept behind Primobolan was to have a far greater anabolic to androgenic ratio. The reasoning is not far removed from the original steroid Dianabol, which was formulated to be a “kinder, gentler” form of testosterone. In this way, the athlete can get all the benefits of greater muscle growth without all the detriment and suppression of excess androgens. In the case of Dianabol, it was a good idea yet just it didn’t turn out quite as well as expected. With Primobolan, they got it right.
Primobolan also has a unique fat burning/estrogen blocking capability resulting in “lean gains.” (Leading some people to believe it’s just a “cutter” which is also ridiculous since all steroids are growth drugs). It doesn’t actually burn fat but it can prevent more fat from being formed.
Being a DHT derivative (technically it’s DHB) Primobolan blocks SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin) thus preventing estrogen from forming. When using Primobolan you not only do not need to add an anti aromatase it acts as one on its own, so if you add testosterone, an anti e may not be required.
Primobolan has often been compared to Deca Durabolin – most likely due to the fact that they’re both mildly androgenic. However, Deca’s “nandrolone” qualities are actually more suppressive than straight testosterone. Deca also increases progesterone that causes extreme water retention, which incidentally is often regarded, incorrectly, as muscle growth. Primobolan causes almost no water retention that is why many people feel it isn’t a good “mass” builder, which is probably its biggest misconception. Primobolan is deceptive in that the gains are so clean they aren’t overtly apparent at first -- which accounts for another myth that Primobolan takes weeks to “kick in.” That, of course, is nonsense. It begins working within hours, but the results may not be noticeable for a while.
Primobolan can be an outstanding size drug on a bulking cycle, If... you consume adequate protein. That is the principal on which it is based. It repairs though increased anabolism. Without the food source, the drug has nothing to work with, so if you aren’t committed to training hard and eating a lot of protein, Primo will be a disappointment. But for more advanced trainers, and those who are used to training naturally, Primo will seem like a wonder drug. Which it kinda is.
There is also an oral form of Primobolan that is often overlooked, the reason being, they are probably the most impractical steroids available. Primobolan acetate is not 17 alpha alkylated, therefore they do not stress the liver. Sounds great, eh? The problem is, they’re only bioavailability for about 4 hours, resulting in several dosages throughout the day (and night) in order to maintain stable blood levels. The other problem is the cost. At what usually amounts to $2 a pill and a necessity of 8 pills a day, the weekly price will exceed $100 a week for a mild cycle. Therefore, Primobolan tablets are not in large demand. (Though if cost isn’t much of a concern they’re an excellent “safe” choice for a first time user, the needle phobic, or a “natural” athlete who needs it clear his or her system within a day).
Primobolan is the “Rolls Royce” of steroids – expensive, but worth it. It stacks well with everything and adds increased anabolism to any cycle while keeping blood pressure, cholesterol count and blood platelet within normal range with moderate use. It may also be the only steroid suitable for women, with the exception of Anavar, though Primobolan is safer.
People are concerned with hair loss with the usage of Primobolan but most users claim it’s no harder on the hairline than straight testosterone.
Because of Primobolan’s mild nature some bodybuilders use it as a “bridge” between cycles though that is not recommended since it will further suppress natural testosterone production and make it more difficult to rebound.
Primobolan can be an excellent addition to HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) (200 mgs of Primo with 100mgs of testosterone weekly) but it is not available even with a prescription in most countries.
Primobolan is usually injected several times a week since a cc contains only 100 mgs. ( This is due to a heavy molecular weight. Only so much will “fit” into a ml of oil). It’s active for approximately 2 weeks. Anything under 200 mgs a week will not show a tremendous difference but once it goes to 400 mgs, that’s when the magic usually begins. Also due to the molecular weight, Primo tends to be a painful shot. Not bad going in, but the next day you can expect some soreness.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was known to love Primo and to use 100mgs a day, which by today’s standard is quite conservative for a pro but back in the 70’s it was considered outrageous! As mentioned, Primo needs a more androgenic compound to truly get the maximum benefit so an additional steroid is often used and Arnold was thought to maybe use 50 mgs of d-bol a day, which was also pushing the envelope at the time. As little as 200 mgs of test will suffice to maintain a favorable androgenic environment. (Though most people use more, which is essentially more than they need. At a certain point, the risk/benefit ratio becomes unfavorable).
Primobolan is the most faked steroids on the black market. Even UG labs fake it because the raw materials for the chemical compound so expensive. The common “substitute” for Primo is Equipoise since the effects are similar – solid muscle with little bloat. But EQ is not in the same league as Primo and experienced Primo users know it. EQ is a cheap veterinarian drug and can leave the user feeling a little “ill” whereas Primo makes you feel “healthy.” Unless you can get your hands on legit Primo in Turkey or Germany, a reliable UG lab is the only way to go, though you’re never really certain of what you’ll get or if the dosage is correct. Even in countries where it’s legal, Primo isn’t readily available due to the high cost and the fact that there really isn’t a medical reason to use it. It’s strictly a muscle builder and for that purpose it’s unparalleled.
When it comes to putting foreign substances in your body, you don’t want to go bargain hunting. Primobolan costs a little more but in the long run you’ll get more -- with less risks. It’s a shame it’s so hard to obtain but with more access to more UG labs via the internet, it may be possible to track it down. It isn’t a “get big quick” drug, but is a great adjunct to developing solid, quality muscle that can be maintained post cycle with natural training as long as proper PCT is used.
This drugs is capable of blocking Estrogen from ever attaching to the female-hormone receptors in the male breast tissue. Nolvadex will block the receptor sites on the breast tissue so that Estrogen can never attach there and cause gynecomastia. This is a very important drugs for those who do not wish to suffer from puffy nipples.
This drug helps in recovering testosterone after a cycle. When using Anabolic Steroids, your testicles will diminish their own testosterone production. using Clomid will help your testicles regain their testosterone production to the same levels as before you went on cycle. A Bodybuilder only needs 100mg of Clomid per day for a week in order to regain testosterone production. Clomid is the drugs every bodybuilder must have in their cabinet before even starting their first cycle.
Arimidex is an aromatase inhibitor. It works by lowering blood Estrogen concentrations, which may decrease the size and growth of breast tissue in men. Men who use Steroids are prone to growth of the tissue around the breast area, a condition known as "Bitch-Tits" of Gynecomastia. Arimidex is a very potent medication capable of preventing and even reversing the growth of tissue in the male chest area. Arimidex is a drug used by almost every bodybuilder who uses steroids.
HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin)
HCG is an injectable preparation used by Bodybuilders for the purpose of preventing and treating testicular shrinkage. When a Bodybuilder uses Steroids for a long period of time, the testicles of the user will lose size and shrink due to the testicles producing less testosterone during a Steroid cycle. Using HCG during this time will both help the testicles regain size and also bring the testicles back to normal size. HCG can be used during and after a cycle.
