On the basis of the hormone’s function, Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is identical to Nandrolone Decanoate. Both forms are comprised of the same active hormone. In the case of NPP we have a shorter ester version that gives a larger burst of Nandrolone after injection, but also carries a much shorter half-life. This means Nandrolone Phenylpropionate has to be injected more frequently than its larger ester counterpart if blood levels are to remain stable.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is slightly more anabolic than testosterone with a rating of 125 compared to testosterone’s rating of 100. It is also significantly less androgenic with a rating of 37 compared to testosterone’s rating of 100. The reduced androgenicity is due to the Nandrolone hormone reducing to dihydronandrolone (DHN) instead of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This is one of the reasons Nandrolone Phenylpropionate can be well tolerated at higher doses in some men than higher doses of testosterone.
For best results and to minimize the risk of side effects, 50-100mg of NPP per day is recommended. This injectable steroid can be used daily or three times per week. Advanced level bodybuilders can use larger doses, such as 400-800mg per week. Its suggested NPP should be used with a form of injectable testosterone as ‘deca dick’ can be apparent when testosterone is fully suppressed to hypogondal levels.
For women, 50-100mg per week should be adequate and limit the amount of negative side effects experienced.
How to use:
In bulking cycles, NPP is one of the most popular steroids to stack with other compounds. Although the goal of a bulking cycle is to add mass, NPP will do that but in a clean, quality fashion. This is very beneficial to bodybuilders who bulk during the off-season but need to add pure size and not increase their body fat percentage. This is due to the shorter ester of NPP not allowing the body to hold water retention, as we have just mentioned above.
Whether bulking, cutting or just incorporating for the relief of joint pain, NPP will help transform the body into a well-sculpted lean, muscular machine. Keep in mind, diet and training need to be on point at all times to receive the maximum benefits that this amazing substance can offer.
