The chemical name for Equipoise is Boldenone Undecylenate. Most steroid users refer to this as “EQ”. For quite some time it was assumed that Equipoise was very similar to another popular steroid known as Deca-Durabolin. This is not true in any way shape or form.
The effects of Equipoise are pretty straight forward and this steroid is well-tolerated by most users. Some will experience an increase in appetite while cycling with this steroid. In fact, EQ has had some previous success in treating those with muscle wasting diseases and was also a drug approved for use by veterinarians to treat horses.
Equipoise can be used in both cutting and bulking cycles and proves to be more beneficial when stacked with other anabolic steroids rather than with a solo cycle. Gains during a bulking cycle will not come overnight, but instead will be slow and gradual. It is worth noting that the gains achieved during the cycle will be lean mass. Time to talk about cycling EQ for good, solid, quality results.
Although Equipoise can be used by itself, you won’t find many advanced steroid users that will run this steroid alone. It is more beneficial when stacked with other powerful compounds and the results will be much more noticeable.
Cycles of EQ run a bit longer than the usual cycle. The length of any steroid cycle is often chosen by the individual. Factors that come into play when determining the length of a cycle include, goals, other steroids being stacked, tolerance levels and the user’s fitness and exercise training level. You will see some steroid users run this particular steroid for only 8 weeks. While this steroid is versatile and can be used for cutting and bulking purposes, most experienced steroid users will run this steroid during a bulking or off-season cycle for mass gains. This steroid should always be used in conjunction with Testosterone as a base steroid to the cycle. Both men and women can benefit from this Anabolic compound.
A common beginner cycle of EQ runs fourteen weeks in length and uses Testosterone Enanthate as the base steroid. We have outlined this cycle below:
|1||300-500mg per week||300-500mg per week|
|2||300-500mg per week||300-500mg per week|
|3||300-500mg per week||300-500mg per week|
|4||300-500mg per week||300-500mg per week|
|5||300-500mg per week||300-500mg per week|
|6||300-500mg per week||300-500mg per week|
|7||300-500mg per week||300-500mg per week|
|8||300-500mg per week||300-500mg per week|
|9||300-500mg per week||300-500mg per week|
|10||300-500mg per week||300-500mg per week|
|11||300-500mg per week||300-500mg per week|
|12||300-500mg per week||300-500mg per week|
|13||300-500mg per week||300-500mg per week|
|14||300-500mg per week||300-500mg per week|
For an intermediate user of Equipoise, best results could be achieved by injecting a dose between 500-700mg per week in a fourteen-week cycle accompanied by the use of Testosterone Enanthate as the base steroid.
For an advanced or experienced user of Equipoise, doses between 700-1,000mg per week are more than enough to achieve the desired results.
Now it’s time to talk about what Equipoise can do for you. EQ will increase the rate of protein synthesis. Training results will be intensified which will promote muscle gains. The user will experience a boost in metabolism with injections of Equipoise. We would like to stress that the results of an EQ cycle will vary from person to person.
This steroid will allow the individual to perform in the gym more efficiently and effectively and push through intense training sessions. Athletic performance in general will be at a higher level as well. Endurance is also said to increase with the use of EQ, so those who enjoy cardiovascular sessions at the gym will not get fatigued as quickly while cycling with this amazing steroid. Strength increases are also common when using EQ. Especially when the user is consuming more calories with the goal of adding muscle mass.
Bodybuilders who look to cut fat will enjoy using EQ as well as those who want to use it in a bulking cycle. As long as the user’s diet is on point, benefits from Equipoise and muscle mass gained will be clean, quality muscle rather than fat gain and water weight. Knowledge is power. The more you know about a particular compound you intend to cycle with, the more your body will reap the benefits and rewards of the steroid.
ABOUT EQUIPOSE CYCLES:
The dosage and cycle of the steroid depends on the goal and the purpose of each individual. It is always better to get advice from someone experienced before beginning the cycle. But you should keep in mind that the basic dose and uses of the cycles should be clear. In this article, you will get to know about three types of cycles given for the professionals and the beginners.

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 within 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 their last pill or injection is taken (dependant on the ester). 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 Equipoise last four weeks and begin about three weeks after your last EQ injection.
PCT consists of either Clomid or Nolvadex although some individuals will use both during this time. Clomid and Nolvadex both come with side effects that may include; headaches, nausea and an upset stomach. These side effects will vary from person to person depending on his or her tolerance level. Whether choosing one over the other or choosing to use both for PCT, it’s common to start with higher doses of both drugs and taper the dosage down until your PCT comes to an end.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM PCT
Don’t expect to hit the gym as viciously when you are off your steroid cycle and running your post cycle therapy. Muscle 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 have worked hard for.
Equipoise can be used for cutting, bulking or strength cycles and will provide amazing results when combined with clean eating and consistent training. This steroid has been, and will continue to be, cycled by novice athletes as well as the most experienced bodybuilders and athletes.
How you cycle EQ is up to you. Plan accordingly and make sure to have an end goal in mind. Those that are new to the world of steroids, should always do enough research about EQ and any other steroid they consider using. Without the proper knowledge of how EQ works, how will you ever know if the steroid has reached its maximum potential?
You can ask the guys and girls at the local gym about Equipoise and you may get mixed results and opinions. Take all of that into consideration but make up your own mind about what you think of Equipoise after running a cycle.
