Deca Testosterone Dosage
Deca, as it is commonly known, has a chemical structure in which the 19th Carbon is absent. This makes its aromatization, possible. In order to prevent this, Deca is taken along with testosterone. Deca is available in injection as well as tablet form but its advisable to take oral doses. This avoids the risk of getting contaminated through syringes. Deca with testosterone should be administered for a minimum of 8 weeks and maximum of 12 weeks, for positive and effective results. But it is again advisable, not to extend the cycle beyond 12 weeks, as it will result in atrophy and major side effects. For a first timer, the initial cycle should consist of a dose of 400 mg a week of Deca combined with a dose of 300 mg to 500 mg a week of Testosterone Enanthate for 12 weeks.
Deca Durabolin is a bulking compound generally used in off seasons. It synthesizes protein without any water retention in muscle tissues and joints. It is a muscle builder and power enhancer. During events and competitions or a few weeks prior to it, the body should be allowed to calm down by reducing the Deca dose. The regular Deca cycle of 400 mg should be reduced to 200- 300 mg a week. The dosage should not be stopped completely because regular rigorous exercising and workout will drain all the energy. In order to sustain the workout, at least 200 mg a week should be administered till the competition or event.
Although, Deca has a low side effect rate, some of its side effects are still disastrous. If overdose of Deca is done either intentionally or accidentally, it can have some serious negative side effects. The main side effect is loss of libido in body builders which can lead to complete or partial impotency. It also causes erectile dysfunction and testosterone suppression. To prevent loss of libido and other problems like decrease in sexual activity, non- formation of sperm etc., one must decrease the dose but gradually. Deca is also known to aromatize, which means that it converts to estrogen. This increases its level thereby creating hormonal imbalance.
Doses of Deca with testosteroneare highly recommended for mainly two reasons. The first being, it further reduces the side effects rate of Deca and secondly it prevents its aromatization. Deca is a good steroid but should be administered along with testosterone.
