Nandrolone Decanoate, also known as Deca Durabolin is perhaps the second-best known injectable anabolic steroid after testosterone. It seems that almost every steroid novice and many who are experienced with steroid cycles believe that for best results they may need to include Deca. Deca Durabolin is also well known for carrying two traits that are extremely important and largely separate it from many anabolic steroids. Again, many other steroids will carry these traits, but Deca Durabolin does so to a higher level. The traits in question are increasing bone mineral content and enhancing collagen synthesis. Due to these traits, Deca Durabolin is well known for promoting joint relief, and for many athletes that’s the only reason they’ll use it. Due to these traits, as well as its ability to increase red blood cell count, we can begin to see what types of therapeutic advantages this steroid can hold.
For the athlete looking for rejuvenation and relief, 100mg per week is a fine starting point, but most will be much happier with 200mg per week results. Such a dosing will ensure recovery, relief, and endurance are all enhanced as well as provide a slight anabolic boost. For true anabolic gains, 300mg per week is normally considered the low-end dose. Many will find 400mg per week to be the perfect dosing level, and more importantly, well within a controllable level. Many men may be able to tolerate doses as high as 600mg per week. This will increase the risk of adverse effects and often 400mg per week is more than enough, but varying circumstances will dictate the individual outcome.
How to use:
Deca Durabolin should not be used for less than 8 weeks when used as a performance enhancing tool. The compound is extremely slow acting, and the individual will need to use it for an extended period of time to reap a reward. Eight weeks should be the minimum, but once discontinued the compound will still be active in the body for several weeks. As 8 weeks is our minimum, 10-12 weeks will be very acceptable for most men. Use can stretch past this point but is rarely recommended; most will not implement cycles much longer than 12-16 weeks outside hardcore performance circles, and in those cases, a rotation of steroidal hormones is highly advised.
