1-Testosterone Cyp (DHB Cypionate) Trial Run

The following article was written by ‘P’ from eRoids

Introduction

75333
1-Testosterone Cypionate is a relatively new AAS product on the market, which is vastly increasing in popularity. However, since the demand of this product outweighs the supply, there is a lack of reputable reviews on this products performance, post injection pain (PIP) and suitability for AAS users who are looking to adapt their aesthetics in an uncommon/unconventional manner. So, in order to increase the knowledge available for this product (1-Testosterone Cypionate) I have created a review based upon my personal pinning experiences.

Back in the day VPX came out with the 1 Test oral trans solution and then M1T(Methylated  1 Testosterone) showed up. Yes I was guilty of PH/Pro-steroid use back in the day, but only if the compound had value and once I found a reputable gear source and all the good one were banned I stopped using and endorsing the use of them all together. Now back, to the point, this 1 Test Cyp is amazing stuff when studied AND I know someone in my gym that got a hold of a batch of UGL 1 Test so I am going to give his witness and my visual confirmation to this compound but we are going to be honest in the review and info vs experience. Let’s look at the drug facts and info first on what I know.

It’s based on two pro-hormone/pro-steroids. M1T(Methylated 1 Testosterone). M1T gave me super gains and very quickly and with no water retention bu harsh on the liver due to it being a oral. M1T works similar to Tren IMO. The other compound is 1 AD and guess what it converst too? 1 Testosterone.

1-test is structured closely to Eq and they share similar properties except 1 test comes as a powder versus Eq that is in liquid form already at room temperature .1 cyp is so highly concentrated that you have to use EO plus oil with BB and BA which will explain the higher price because it is more costly to make and is 10 times harder to dissolve than Test base. I would rather have the 1 Test than Eq because it has proven to be stronger than Test but with less side effects like using Eq. Put it this way, 50g of Eq would make 20 vials dosed at 250mg per ml, but 50g of 1 test will make 200 vials at 250mg per ml because it has more volume than weight. It is some strange stuff and it is very hard to make and it is the most highly concentrated compound.

Background of the Compound:

Pharmaceutical Name: Dihydroboldenone
Chemical Names: 17beta-hydroxyandrost-1-en-3-one, 5alpha-androst-1-en-3-one, 17beta-ol

It’s dihydroboldenone actually, a tweaked Eq compound that kicks ass from what I have read and actually have some on the way to me from a very reputable SRC, it can be ran like Eq but more effective at lower doses. Chemical name is 17beta-hydroxyandrost-1-en-3-one, 5alpha-androst-1-en-3-one, 17beta-ol – the Anabolic /Androgenic Ratio: 200:100, here’s some other facts I found on it too:

  • 1-Test is 5-7 times more active (anabolic ) than testosterone itself. (More lean tissue gains with fewer potential negative side effects)
  • 1-Test does not aromatize to estrogens. In fact some studies suggest a slight anti-estrogen effect due to aromatase inhibition. (No water retention, gynecomastia or fat gains)
  • Similar to Trenbolone or high dose Primobolan Acetate in effect without the libido issues. Injectable 1-Testosterone

Naturally, many hard-core athletes have employed 1-testosterone as a parental (injectable) preparation. Those that were able to acquire 1-Testosterone esters such as decanoate or cypionate realized the best anabolic results due to improved pharma-kinetics. Most users of properly prepared sterile products (pyrogen free) report significant hardening of the musculature with increased lean mass tissue and fat loss at total weekly dosages of 200-300mg. There is also a surprising noted significant increase in functional strength. Many have compared 1-Testosterne Cypionate to Trenbolone in effects. I have noted this to be so but this would suggest potential for the negative side-effects of trenbolone as well. I would suggest that the results from this type of application are closer to that of high dose Primobolan Acetate use with better over all hardening value. (Harder, leaner, stronger and increased libido).

As for the duration with which dihydroboldenone can be run, due to the mild nature of the drug extended use of the compound can be completed with little in the way of serious complications arising. There are no major issues with hepatoxicity or severe kidney stress and the effect it has on other vital health markers such as blood pressure is slight in the majority of users.

As for specific dosages used with this drug, the low end is primarily thought to be three hundred to four hundred milligrams per week for male users. Like all drugs this number will vary from user to user and also depends on how much of a dramatic effect a user will want to achieve with the drug. As for the highest doses that would be worthwhile for users to attempt, this again depends on a number of variables. Doses of one gram per week are not uncommon for some users with others attempting doses in excess of this. It will always come back to how much one is willing to administer and at what point do the positives of increasing your doses begin to be outweighed by the negatives.

As previously indicated dihydroboldenone does not aromatize and therefore estrogenic side effects such as gynecomastia and water retention are not a concern for users. This is partly due to the drug being incapable of 5alpha reduction. Also, androgenic side effects would also be extremely infrequent for most users as there is little in the way, in terms of attributes of the drug, to produce these. These include such things as acne and hair loss, although it appears to have the potential to cause prostate enlargement. This potential for prostate growth is actually similar in frequency and severity as with that of testosterone propionate.
Other common negative side effects associated with the use of anabolic/androgenic steroids are still relatively mild with the use of dihydroboldenone. Of course suppression of the natural testosterone production of users will occur like with all steroids, however other side effects such as an increase in blood pressure, acne and others are comparably mild and often times non-existent in users, at least as they are directly related to the administration of this drug.

Strengths

Current PIP Situation: From my experiences with 1-Test so far, i no longer have ANY PIP. For the first 3-4 shots i did have pip, and it is very similar to the effects of pinning test e into a virgin muscle.

Personal Experiences/Review
The 1-Testosterone Cypionate injection procedure is slightly more painful than a Testosterone Enanthate injection (which most of us can relate to). As I pushed on the syringe I definitely felt the 1-Test move into my quad. The syringe contained 1ml of 1-Testosterone Cypionate.

Post-Injection Timeline

  • 0 Hours Injection Complete
  • 0-4 Hours A mild swelling in the quad area has begun to develop. This is nothing to worry about, since the swelling size is equivalent to injecting Testosterone Enanthate into a virgin muscle at this point in time.
  • 4-12 Hours Swelling size is maintained with a slight redness in addition to a small post injection pain. Once again, at this stage it is comparable to injecting Testosterone Enanthate into a virgin muscle. I had no concerns about the injection at this point in time, since I had experienced this sensation, swelling and redness before so I continued to train and eat like usual.
  • 12-24 Hours Redness is no longer apparent, however the swelling size has increased slightly – I have kept an eye on the swelling to monitor any rapid changes during this period.
  • 24-36 Hours Swelling size has began to reduce and the post injection pain is bearable, nothing to worry about in my experience. I can and am walking perfectly fine at this stage.
  • 36+ Hours No PIP, no swelling and exited to shoot up my second lot of 1-Test!

PIP Conclusion: Overall, the post-injection pain received from the 1-Testosterone Cypionate was not bad at all. For the most part (at least 75% of the time) the feeling and swelling was extremely similar to a previously experienced sensation (effects similar to injecting Testosterone Enanthate into a virgin muscle) and therefore caused me no worry. However, the period 12-24 hours post injection, I became slightly concerned, due to the redness experienced in my quad. I closely monitored the situation and placed a heat pad on my quad at all possible times and post 36+ hours after injecting the 1-Testosterone Cypionate the PIP had gone.

BF%: My diet remained constant throughout my cycle in order to really test how powerful this compound was, and gosh is it good. My BF% dropped ~3% and it is definitely noticeable. I already had visible abs, but now they look much more dense and defined. Also, with the reduction in BF% I feel more confident, this might well be psychological, but it once again reinforces the power of this compound.

Pump: It has become a daily ritual that before I set foot in the gym I always make sure that I have a pre-workout, and this most likely is superpump max. I ran superpump up until I felt the 1-test kick in, which was week 3.75 for me and then decided to drop it, to see this compounds potential. I can safely say that 1-testosterone cypionate is a very strong compound and my pumps were awesome. Now to put this in perspective for some of you guys that haven’t taken 1-test and wish to – the pumps are comparable to approximately 75% of dbol’s pumps, which I found is great, because it made my workouts consistently intense and I felt like a beast when I trained.

Anabolic/Androgenic Ratio: Following Hirshberg’s Anabolic/Androgenic Ratio, it is clear that the ratio for 1-testosterone cypionate is 200:100. This means that increases its ability to fight for our receptors in comparison to testosterone.

Weaknesses

Insulin: This is a very important point to take into account for the serious bodybuilders who are taking insulin. From my experiences with this compound, I noticed strong hunger pains/strikes, very similar indeed to EQ’s (undecylenate ester) hunger pains. I would highly advise you to not take insulin alongside your first 1-test cycle, to see how your body reacts to the compound and also to see if you are in agreement with this review.

Complimentary Compounds: Since 1-testosterone cypionate is a tweaked version of EQ, I find that running both compounds side by side in the same cycle will produce diminishing results, when compared to two separate cycles where 1-test and EQ are mutually exclusive of eachother. This is a weakness for anybody wanting to stack compounds. However, I have found that anavar is a great complimentary product to 1-test since it enhances its effects, while also providing a strength increase at the latter stage of your cycle.

Opportunities

Strength gains are 70% of Tren: From my experiences I have noticed that the strength gains exhibited from this compound are approximately 70% of trens strength gains. Although this compound’s strength gains aren’t as high as trens, your sides are nowhere near as extensive of trens either. Additionally, the strength gains are definitely noticeable and the reps I was able to do for almost every exercise increased by an average of 12-18%.

Increase in Appetite: Around week 6 of this cycle I started to notice that my grocery bill was expanding. My appetite shot through the roof in much the same way as if it were on an EQ cycle. This I feel is an opportunity for this compound, since those bodybuilders and athletes who have reached a plateau in their daily caloric intake can definitely benefit from the increase in appetite exhibited from 1-testosterone cypionate.

Dry, Lean and Vascular: This compound is a great addition to any cycle and anybody looking to shred BF% and look dry, lean and vascular. The title of this paragraph says it all to be honest – and I can confirm that at this current stage in my lifes progression, that I have never before looked this good (no homo – if you can no homo on yourself )

Use/Dosing

As for the duration with which dihydroboldenone can be run, due to the mild nature of the drug extended use of the compound can be completed with little in the way of serious complications arising. There are no major issues with hepatoxicity or severe kidney stress and the effect it has on other vital health markers such as blood pressure is slight in the majority of users.

As for specific dosages used with this drug, the low end is primarily thought to be three hundred to four hundred milligrams per week for male users. Like all drugs this number will vary from user to user and also depends on how much of a dramatic effect a user will want to achieve with the drug. As for the highest doses that would be worthwhile for users to attempt, this again depends on a number of variables. Doses of one gram per week are not uncommon for some users with others attempting doses in excess of this. It will always come back to how much one is willing to administer and at what point do the positives of increasing your doses begin to be outweighed by the negatives.

For females the usual rules apply with dihydroboldenone as they do with other drugs. These are namely starting out with short esters if possible so that if side effects begin to become too severe discontinuation of the drug can begin immediately and low doses should be administered at the beginning of the cycle and can be increased once the tolerance of the user is gauged. Anywhere from twenty five to one hundred milligrams per week would be a good starting point for the majority of female users who have little to moderate experience with anabolic drugs.

As stated earlier, for the frequency of dosing with dihydroboldenone it of course depends on the ester used with the compound. Seemingly the most popular current ester to produce the drug with is cypionate. No matter what ester utilized however the same rules would apply as with any other drug in terms of the frequency of administration needed to maintain relatively stable blood levels of the compound.

The future for 1-Testosterone Cypionate

IMO, if there continues to be positivity associated with the compound and there is also a strong demand for the compound then generally the answer is yes, more sources will begin to carry it, as long as they are able through their connections/sources to get the raw powders – also this will decrease the price of 1-test, since there will be an increase in supply.

Threats

Price: 1-testosterone cypionate is a relatively expensive compound, however it is justifiable to pay for this compound in my opinion, since the positives far outweigh the negatives. It is very similar to EQ, from my experiences; however the strength gains are where it sets itself apart from the great EQ compound.

Availability: Although this compound is relatively new to eroids, it has been available for many years, and the main set back for the previous users was resulting from their PIP related experiences. I can firmly say that the current brand I am using (identifiable from the labels in the pictures) is excellent, and I currently have no PIP wherever I inject on my six site rotation. However, although this compound carries no PIP, I do regularly experience a slight pain when injecting, but this is bearable and nothing to worry about in my opinion.

Side Effects: Dihydroboldenone doesn’t aromatize, therefore estrogenic side effects such as gynecomastia and water retention are not a concern for users. This is partly due to the drug being incapable of 5alpha reduction. Also, androgenic side effects would also be extremely infrequent for most users as there is little in the way, in terms of attributes of the drug, to produce these. These include such things as acne and hair loss, although it appears to have the potential to cause prostate enlargement. This potential for prostate growth is actually similar in frequency and severity as with that of testosterone propionate.

With the positive aspects of the lack of aromatization associated with dihydroboldenone also come the negative ones. Fortunately these are primarily limited to such symptoms as lethargy, malaise and possibly a reduction in sex drive. These are caused by a lower ratio of estrogen in comparison to androgens in the body. For the most part however this effect is relatively slight and can be avoided with the use of steroids that do aromatize in conjunction with dihydroboldenone and thus restore a better balance in terms of androgens versus estrogen.

It also appears that the administration of dihydroboldenone may result in an increase in liver weight (2). This effect occurred when administering the drug orally but should also be true of the drug when administered via intramuscular injection. There is no research to indicate this however.

Other common negative side effects associated with the use of anabolic/androgenic steroids are still relatively mild with the use of dihydroboldenone. Of course suppression of the natural testosterone production of users will occur like with all steroids, however other side effects such as an increase in blood pressure, acne and others are comparably mild and often times non-existent in users, at least as they are directly related to the administration of this drug.

In terms of side effects for women, at moderate to heavy doses symptoms of virilization are likely. These can include such symptoms as clitoral enlargement, body hair growth and deepening of the voice. At lower doses however these side effects should not be a concern for the majority of potential female users.

Value for Money: It’s definitely a great compound to run, my only concern with it so far is the initial cost per vial. IMO its a large upfront cost to bare when comparing it to a similar compound such as EQ, so my plan, once this cycle has been completed is to evaluate whether the cost was actually worth it. So far, I can firmly say no, but then again im currently in week 4/5 and the potential i have seen is great, so ill re-evaluate the situation in another 2 weeks

Conclusion

1-Testosterone Cypionate is undoubtedly a great compound to run; my only concern is the initial cost per vial. IMO its a large upfront cost to bare when comparing it to a similar compound such as EQ, however, what you must realise is that it is completely worth it if you are an experienced bodybuilder/athlete. – Which means that I won’t be recommending this compound for any third cycle options.

All in all, I will be running another 1-testosterone cypionate cycle – so from this aforementioned statement, you can clearly tell that I had fun on cycle and am over the moon with my results.
